I want you all to know that we are surrounded by some awesome people!!! Sometimes, I do not know what I would do without my blogger friends. And for one great day in my life, I am hoping to meet them all!!!!

Well, speaking of wonderful friends.... I have some wonderful friends who bestowed me with these lovely awards!!!!

Now, I am going to do this to remember exactly how to give the proper credit... where credit is due!

Yvette, @ True Crimes Book Reviews, gave me this wonderful award!!!

This is the rules for this award:

Being a recipient of this award affirms that this blog invests and believes in the Proximity – nearness in space, time and relationships.

I hereby nominate the following blogs to receive this great award and a further way for me to reiterate that these blogs are exceedingly charming, blogging friends who aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!
Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into the body of their award.

Yvette @ True Crime Book Reviews
Dottie @ My Blog 2.0
Amy C. @ Romance Book Wyrm
Mandi @ Smexy Books
Leontine @ Leontine's Book Realm
Host @ The Angel On The Move
Blodeuedd @ Book girl of Mur-y Castle
Houston (aka HAWK) @ Houston A.W. Knight
This award came to me twice...
Once from a new blogger friend of mine (and you all as I see her followers getting bigger) JennJ, @ Sapphire Romance Realm.
Then Amy C., @ Romance Book Wyrm bestowed it upon me... I am feeling the love!!!

Now, the rules for this one is as follows:

The Kreativ rules state that:
Once you receive this award you are to list seven of your favorite things and then nominate seven other blogs.

I am not sure which is harder... sticking to the rules of just picking seven people or listing what my favorite things are....

Well, here goes... I tried to keep it short and sweet... There really is more, but I know how long these things can get... And I tried to go "off the wall" and pick things that no one has said yet... and except for a few... 1 & 7.... I might have done it!!!

1.) I am absolutely in love with my life.... God, family, friends and my babies ~ two dogs and one ferret... Without these things, my life would not be.

2.) I love when it rains. I love the smell of it (yes, I am one of those freaks that can smell the rain coming). I love the sound of the thunder and the rain.

3.) I love cotton candy. Every once in a while, I can find it in the aisle at Wal-Mart in a little container!!! YAYAYAY, I don't have to wait for a fair to come to town!!

4.) I love October. I love the month, I love the fall season, I love the fact that my birthday is Oct. 30 and my daughter's birthday is Oct. 22.

5.) I love when I check the mail and there are two things.... 1.) Books for me!!!!! and 2.) No bills!!!!

6.) I love when I put on a piece of clothing and instantly feel like I have lost weight because they fit me better!

7.) And of course, the whole reason I am here (besides you wonderful people who are reading this that I consider my dear friends).... my books!!!! And I can not walk away with out saying my yum-ME eye candy!!!!

I bestow this award too...

Patti @ Sleepless in New Orleans
