Thank You Thank You Very Much...

You are supposed to read the title in your very best Elvis voice. If you didn't go back and read it again with your ducktail slicked back and your lip curled.

I am so thrilled and honored to have been awarded some blogging awards. The first one was from Toad over at To The Manner Born. First let me say that TOAD is who inspired me to write this post Jesus Loves Me and I have been a loyal reader of his since. It is the Your Blog Is Fabulous Award

and I am just having shitfit giggles over here for getting it. When I started writing this blog and my first I was unsure if anyone would actually read it. It never ceases to amaze me to look on my ticker and find that over 200 people in one day have peered into my brain and haven't run away screamingand many come back for more. This is just amazing to me. That people actually want to read what I write.
Recipients are asked to: Post the award on your blog. Nominate 10 other blogs and link to them. Send some love back to the person who bestowed the award on you telling them who you gave it to and posting a link to their site. Let your nominees know that they've received the award
1. Tales of the Wild Boomba - I'm telling you this woman is my long lost sister from another mother. Her stories and post are always interesting and laugh out loud funny.
2. The Queen's Blog - well because honestly...she is the Queen.
3. Tatermomma - The wonder from down under!
4. The Texas Woman - That junking, spunky, rip roaring good spirited blogger from Aggie Territory.
5. Couture Allure Vintage - because I love the clothes she shows us from a classier day and age.
6. Red Red Whine- She looks at life with a fresh face and a clear voice. Plus she is the only attorney I've ever read that makes sense.

7. Sweet Tea- because who doesn't love Sweet Tea?

8. Casa De Chaos - First of all don't you love the name?

9. The Rightous Buzz- She has made us aware of Dystonia, Politics and of course the healing properties of Coffee.

and Last but certainly not least is

10. Bye Bye Pie - because she is June Gardens and one of the funniest bloggers I have ever seen.

Second is the Lemonaide Award from Renovation Therapy.

Renovation Therapy is a blog in which you never know if you are going to be kitten shopping or making tea bag holders (See Anderson Cooper your not the only one who can use that euphaism.) Anyway she is also someone I follow on a daily basis.

The Lemonade Stand Award is presented to people with a good attitude or sense of gratitude.However, it comes with a few rules: Receipients are asked to: Post the award on your blogNominate 10 other blogs and link to them.
Send some love back to the person who bestowed the award on you by: a/telling them who you gave it to and posting a link to their site.
Let your nominees know that they've received the award.

And the winners are:

1. Bob over at The Lost Fart of Blogging- because he reminds me way too much of my Brother Buck

2. Suzy over at Hollywood Where Hot Comes to Die - Who doesn't love the Chocolate Bopka lady?

3. Jenn over at Juggling Life- You should see how she handles balls.

4. Girly Stuff - because anyone who can put up with that much testosterone deserves more than award. She deserves some vodka in her lemonade

5. Punchy over at Luchesse to Louis Vitton - what style, what grace, what a hottie

6. April over at Coal Creek Farm - she is the pig woman, the thrifty farm wife and well she is just too funny for words.

7. Anne over at Anne Again and Again - for giving us Friday nights and the Virtual Girls Night Out. I have made the acquantaince of many fine writers through her VGNO.

8. Deb over at Suburb Sanity - because there isn't anything sane over there.

9. Beth at Books Etc. - I know she is beating off the black flies this weekend so I hope she sees this when she returns.

10. Margret at Nanny Goats in Panties - not to be confused with Billy Goats in Jock Straps. They are two completely different blogs.

Now I have to tell you that I am grateful for both of these awards. I feel like Sally Field standing on stage saying "They Like me they really really like me!"

Go on click on the blog names and become addicted to them just as I have. Everyone of them is wonderful in thier own rights.

Thanks for the award, Gladys! I really enjoy your blog...we more in common than you will ever know!

Instead of vodka, could I request rum? In a diet coke?

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

I'm honored, Gladys, to be among these other wonderful blogs - Thank you!

And congratulations on your awards - you certainly deserve them!

Gladys thanks so much for the award. That made my day! Now, I've got to see what Nanny Goats in Panties is all about, and nominate 10 blogs!

Suzy said...

Hey Gladys, thanks for the award. I'm so awful that I'll never do 10 recommends because I have 2 other awards that I have to do first. And I don't do memes. It's a miracle I have any friends left at all. Again, thanks!

Jaime said...

Thanks for the award Gladys! And I'm glad to be the only lawyer you know who actually makes sense...most of the time :)

Why, I'm flabbergasted! I'm flabbergladysted! Thankyouverymuch! And I say that in a Latka voice, not an Elvis one.

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

Thanks! And your storytelling is definitely award-winning!

Bob said...

This is way too much for my pea brain (or is that "my pee brain"?) to handle.

Lemme see if I got this straight. I'm supposed to:
(1) Post a thank you,
(2) Link back to you,
(3) Embed links to ten victims, and then
(4) Further alienate them by sending them a chain letter that promises nothing but a funky "award" icon.

And what am I supposed to be thankful for?

Seriously, I do appreciate your kind words. It's just that I have commitment issues. It's me ... really.

Buck can be a bit of a jerk at times, can't he?

The Texas Woman said...

Well, bless your little socks! It took me forever to work my way down the list to this blog and look how I was rewarded! Thank you so much.

You certainly deserve all the awards you get. I love reading your stories!
