Take A Bow-- Some End of the Year Awards

What is it about a little patch of pixels that can make me feel so good about myself for days? It's just a tiny blog badge, but it instills me with pride and comfort. (You like me, you really LIKE me!) So I'd like to give a big, heartfelt thanks to Elana J. and Julie Dao for thinking of me.

The specifics of the "From Me to You" award entreat me to reveal seven facts about myself, and choose seven worthy recipients. I'll try to make these fun:

1. My sister made me get up at four A.M. the Christmas I was six, so she wouldn't get in trouble by herself. The sight of that Barbie Dreamhouse made everything worth it. Ah, to be six again!

2. My parents always told us not to eat the candy canes off the tree before Christmas, but I'd take one with me on the school bus almost every morning and never fessed up. What can I say-- I needed my peppermint fix.

3. This year I got my husband The State DVD collection. He's been wanting it since it was just a rumor, and now it's his. There will be much rejoicing in our little shotgun.

4. I just started watching Mad Men and I won't be friends with any of you until you start watching it. ;) Oh, Peggy! When will you learn?

5. Sawyer is definitely the best character on Lost. What, that one wasn't about me? Sure it is.

6. I will watch Waterworld any time it is on. So will my husband. It's the glue that binds our relationship together.

7. I hate coffee. Will not drink it. I don't even like tiramisu that much because I don't like the coffee flavor. I'm a tea drinker. Mmm. I'm fixing to get me a hot chai latte here in a few minutes.

I'd like to pass this award on to:

1. Jennifer Shirk
2. Sherrinda
3. Voidwalker
4. Shannon M.
5. LiLa
6. Corey S.
7. Heather Z.

From Me, To Y'all! ;)

As for Julie's award-- which matches her blog-- I'm passing it on to these five bloggers, in the hopes that they, too, will pass on the Silver Lining to five others:

1. Icy Roses
2. Karen Denise
3. Suzanne Hayes
4. Rebecca Knight
5. Abby Annis

You all have helped me see the silver lining where all I saw was gray, so thank you!

I'll be back January 2nd, for the "No-Kiss" Blogfest! Don't forget to sign up!

Awwww, thank you! You totally made my day! It has been so good to get to know you better. I have to confess, that I really, really like Sawyer too! *g* I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

Lisa and Laura said...

Thanks for the early Christmas gift, Tere!! I can't believe your husband loves The State! Laura and I used to be obsessed with that show. Even at a young age we had an appreciation for all things random.

Merry Christmas!

Shannon Messenger said...

Aw, thanks Tere. You know just how to make a girl feel loved. I can't WAIT to read your entry for the "No Kiss" blog fest-I know it's going to be epic. Miss you until then!

Karen Denise said...

Thanks Tere! You have definitely helped me see the silver lining. And I love that the glue that keeps you and your hubby together is Water World-lol. That is just too funny! I'll be passing on my Silver Lining as soon as I can.

Voidwalker said...

Congratulations on your award and thank you very much for passing one to me!!! I also checked on that almost-kiss blogfest. I'm going to take it as an opportunity to learn to write anticipatory-like. :)

L.T. Elliot said...

I'd better start watching Mad Men then, huh? =]
Happy Holidays!! Hope you have an excellent Christmas!

Frankie Diane Mallis said...

Congrats on the awards and so excited to read your post for the No Kiss Blogfest-thanks for signing up!!!

V. S said...

Congrats on your awards! Happy holidays!

Abby Annis said...

Momentarily un-unplugging to say thank you and congrats! :)

And um, isn't Sawyer the only reason to watch Lost? Okay, so there's a good plot and lots of tension, but do they really need all that extra stuff? Really? ;)

MG Higgins said...

It feels so good to be recognized, doesn't it? Congratulations on your awards and have a wonderful holiday.

Rebecca Knight said...

Thank you, Tere!! :D I'm glad I could help cheer you up in some funky moments. That made my day!

Happy Holidays, everybody!

Sara ♥ said...

I love the concept behind the Silver Lining award! So great - and I'll definitely check out all of the blogs youo've listed. Congrats on the awards :)

Icy Roses said...

Bawww, thank you! I'm glad I could help in any small way.

Corey Schwartz said...

Thanks, Tere! The "no-kiss" blogfest? Hmm.. wonder what I can come up with for that!

Tamika: said...

Congratulations to all the deserving blogs! Tere, I pray you had a Merry Christmas!

I'm looking ahead with joy!

ElanaJ said...

Congrats! You deserve every award you get. :)

Lisa and Laura said...

Thanks for the award Tere! And I totally agree with ElanaJ, you deserve every single award you get!

And Mad Men...oh Mad Men! I'm so jealous that you're just starting to watch them now. I wish I could go back and watch all of the episodes for the first time again. It's hands down the best show on TV.
