And My Oscars Go To...

I received a few awards last week. I am truly honored to receive these and let me tell you, they really make up for the crappy mood I was in last week! These 3 are from Jane over at Adoption of Jane. I love reading her blog and she has awesome stories of her life that she shares. You really should go and check her blog out!

The first award is the Stiletto Award. I absolutely love the description that goes along with it. It's kind of long and I apologize for that, but I am copying it straight from Jane's blog...

What is a Stiletto Award???

There are thousands of blogs, and there are hundreds of awards.
The Stiletto Award is a little different than most!

First, to understand, let us understand the Stiletto…
some words that describe it…
Classy – Strong -Exotic – Demure – Extreme – Ultra – Sexy - Bold – Funky

“Walking in extremely high heels is not something that the average woman (or man) will need to do in their everyday life.
However, there are times when this skill may be required.”

AND… what is a “blogger”? According to the official definition is:
Blogger: One who writes entries in, adds material to, or maintains a weblog

However, I think there is a LOT more to it than that. My definition of a blogger…
Blogger: A strong, confident woman who has a full life. Because of the nature of her existence, she seeks connection and companionship with others who understand and wish to support her. She gains strength and courage from the experiences of these woman and shares her story in return. Through the “blog world” she develops relationships with women she would otherwise never meet and builds a community of cherished friends with whom she shares her life, experiences, challenges, failures, triumphs, goals, family and so much more! She IS Classy, Strong, Exotic, Demure, Extreme, Ultra, Sexy, Bold and Funky!

“To walk gracefully in high heels, take short steps, as opposed to long strides, and come down in a heel-toe, heel-toe motion.”

Hence, the Stiletto Award…For Excellence in Blogging!
I want to salute the women who balance life, family & relationships with style & class! Those women who share their experiences with us…who encourage us, inspire us, teach us, make us laugh and basically keep us going! You know who they are! While you read this blog, your family is looking at you wondering what the heck you are laughing about so hard…or why the tissue is necessary for internet browsing. It’s the one that the kids are excited about cuz a new post means a new craft project or family outing. The one that inspires you to be a better mom, friend, person in general. The one that reminds you that we are all “in this life together” and you’re not the only one going through the hard stuff. The one that you secretly wish your blog was like…

“It is good to get into the habit of doing the warm-up and cool-down exercises every time you wear them.”

If you’ve received this award, someone out there thinks you deserve it! Be proud! Display the badge with honor! You earned it…after all it means that you brought something special to at least one other person, and really, isn’t that what life’s all about????

“Under no circumstances drive a car with your heels on. Not only do you have less control over the car, but it will damage your shoes – and they aren’t cheap at this height. Keep spare shoes in the car for driving, or have someone drive you.”

This blog is meant to be shared, to be given out, to be bestowed upon any and ALL women who exemplify what the stiletto represents. If you’ve received this award, here’s what you do:

1. Display your Stiletto Badge of Honor on your sidebar! Wear it with pride…

“Heels this high are not meant for clubbing or walking long distances in. They are mainly used for getting from the living room to the bedroom, from the car to the restaurant, or for a short stroll along the catwalk.”

2. BRAG ABOUT IT! -write a post about your award.
3. SAY THANKS! - include a link to the friend who nominated you for the award.
4. SHARE THE LOVE! -nominate 5-10 blogs that you feel deserve the award. Include links to them in your post -and- leave them a comment to let them know they are nominated.
5. DO WHAT YOU DO! -keep at it. Keep inspiring and encouraging and sharing your life! We love it and we thank you!!!

Holy F-ing Monkey balls, I have another award!

This is also from Jane as well as Kmama from The Daily Dribbles. Kmama shares stories about her life raising 2 boys. Her blog is always fun to read and she has a lovely sense of sarcasm that I can really relate to!

The rules.... here they go!
1... post & love your award.
2.... Thank the giver of the award & link to him or her
3... Give Self Pat on The Back
4... use the phrase
holy fu**ing monkey balls once...
5... pass this awesomeness on to 9 other bloggers

This last one is Jane's very own award. I think she was so excited to have her very own award to pass along that she didn't bother with rules. That is fine by me because I am horrible with the rules for these awards. I'm lucky that I remembered to brag post about them at this point. My brain is so fried from the craziness that was last week that I'm surprised I know my own name!

But anyways, here's a few bloggers I'd like to pass these awards on to...

The Monkey Balls award goes to anyone who wants it. I think it's just hysterical and everyone should have a laugh and snag it!

The Stiletto award and You Rock awards go to...

Steven Anthony
Princess of Sarcasm
Amber's Life

You should check out their blogs as well. They are some awesome people!

And Steven, I know you love shoes, but if you don't want a "girl" shoe award, I understand. LOL!!

Until next time...
