How sweet is this...


I was feeling a bit down... probably feeling a bit sorry for myself as I'm frustrated about a few things going on here and there and yonder.... I haven't posted since Sunday because I either don't have time or I just don't have anything positive to say, and you know what they say about saying something nice!! ;)

Then I loged on for a minute to check my comments... to read a few blogs and there it was.  Ms kitty over at commented and told me that she had given me the Versatile Blogger Award.  Now at the time I had never heard of such a thing, but I knew it was sent by God because it made me smile and made me feel better than I had in a bit.  It is so nice when you know that you actually "belong"... and I have to say how much I appreciate Kitty and all my new found friends in this community that we have!!  Well, if I understand it correctly, this is a great way to share blogs that others might not know about.

Here are the rules:

1.  Thank the award giver and link back to them on your post.
2.  Share 7 things about yourself.
3.  Pass this award along to 15 blogs you enjoy reading.
4.  Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award. we go...

1.  Kitty.... thank you so much for my award... your so sweet and I do have to say, your blog is so hot!

2.  HHmmm... 7 things about me....
      1.  I'm usually done with my Christmas shopping by now but this year I have only barely started.
      2.  I'm known for miles for my brownies.
      3.  I love Mexican food... should have been born south of the boarder! ;)
      4.  I freakishly hate spiders...**shivers**
      5.  I love yard sales!!
      6.  I can't tie a knot in a cherry stem with my tongue like my friend kitty... but I can stick out my tongue at S when his head is turned! *giggling*
      7.  I love snuggling up in bed, sleeping late on Saturday morning... it doesn't happen often so I treasure it when it happens!!

Wow... that was hard... it's so hard coming up with 7 things about yourself and still keep your precious anonymity!!  ;o)

3. Ok... here are 15 blogs that I love to read...  I follow a lot more than that and enjoy all of them.... but here are 15 in no particular order!

      1.  Sara at  She is so wise... and entertaining! Love your blog!
      2.  Mick at  Its so nice to hear how a loving HOH thinks! Thanks!
      3.  Christina at  You just never fail to tickle me!!
      4.  Dee over at I'm so enjoying getting to know you!!
      5.  Stormy at  Your writing moves so many... thank you!
      6   Sky at   Your  sweet comments always make me smile!
      7.  PK at  I'm so jealous of your empty nest syndrome!!
      8.  Susie at  Your thoughts on Dd are spot on!  ;o)
      9.  Lil over at You make me look at things differently... thanks!
    10.  Daisychain at  I can now say I have friends world wide! ;o)
    11.  Rouge at  Honey, you are always such a blessing!

    13.  Faerie at I absolutely love your writing!
    14.  ComposingUs at I love your blog.. welcome to the community!
    15.  Kay at You always have such encouraging comments

I so enjoy all the blogs that I follow!!  I know from my own point of view that we pour our souls out for others to read... we share... we laugh... we cry... and we just want someone to understand!!  We have such a wonderful community here... I'm so thankful to have everyone in our community in my life!!  ((hugs))



  1. Mikki, such a sweet post, thank you for the mention, I was stressed when Kitty did it, now I'm having a full blown panic attack. I'm awful at these kinds of things.

  2. Mikki - CONGRATULATIONS! I really enjoy your blog! I am negligent in getting my VBA list out - you are one of MY nominees :). Thank you for reading my blog.

    Loved learning more about YOU!

    Take care. Sky

  3. Mikki,

    Thank you for being such a sweet blogging friend. I'm glad I perked up your day...I know how it feels to have a down day or two.


    And one more comment directed at faerie...please, please don't panic or stress over this! If you don't want to do it, then nobody will think badly of you. It really is supposed to be for fun:)!

  4. sweet! Thank you. Now...what am I supposed to do? Looks like a good weekend project. 7 things huh...pondering.

  5. @faerie... oh sweet lady please... this is not a stresser!! No... don't fret, if you don't do these kinds of things, don't worry about it!! We all care about you and this was just my way of putting a little spot light on your wonderful blog! It would break my heart to think I stressed you out!! ((hugs))

    @Sky... thank you! Your not negligent...getting this list together is not for the weak at heart! It took most of my day off and on trying to figure out just what I wanted to say about myself.. who I wanted to nominate... so many decisions!! *giggling* ((hugs))

    @kitty... Thank you!! You definitely perked my day!! ((hugs))

    @Susie.... Your so welcome...the way I understand it you are to tell 7 things about yourself... and then list and link 15 sites that you love to read... Good luck! It's not the easiest thing... so many decisions!! ((hugs))
