The Award Goes To... UPDATE

So today my sister Erin was checking out my blog. Our conversation went something like this...

Erin: "No, that's not your first award."
Me: "Well, I don't know where the other ones are."
Erin: checking her blog... "Yep, here it is. April 6th. See?" Showing me her blog...
Me: "Oops, didn't know about them... or what I was supposed to do with them. Now I'll have to redo that post."
Erin: "Yeah, you will."

So, here are my real first blog awards. From my sister Erin. From April 6, 2009. As in four months ago. I'm so ashamed.

Here are the awards and their rules...

The Lemonade Award

If you are given the award, put the logo on your blog or post.
Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.
Next, nominate 5-10 blogs which show GREAT ATTITUDE and/or GRATITUDE!
Be sure to link to your nominees within your post. Let them know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.

The Friendship Award

The friendship Award: "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated."

Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

Kreativ Blogger Award

1. Post the award on your blog, and link to the person who gave you the award.
2. List 7 things you love.
3. List seven blogs you love.
4. E-mail or comment on those blogs to let the people know you've given them the award.

7 Things I Love: (you know the answers everyone usually says, so I won't say God and family. Those are "of course" answers.)
1. my camera
2. ice cream
3. air conditioning (since I'm in KC and it's 100+ "real feel" temp today!)
4. fabric
5. computers
6. vacation
7. sunsets

7 Blogs I love (and also the ones to whom I'm passing the awards... I know there are more than 7, but for as long as it's taken me to post this--4 months--I figured I can have more!))
1. Erin's
2. Becky's
3. Vijini's
4. Jessica's
5. Katie's
6. Nicole's
7. Sharalee's
8. Sara's
9. Adrienne's
10. Ashley's
11. Kristin's
12. Raechel's

Erin was very "kreativ" in her post, the one in which I actually got these awards. She mentioned that she had been procrastinating in writing her post about the awards. And it was only 5 weeks. Hmmmm... what kind of an award do you get for procrastinating for 4 months? One-third of a year? Four flips of the calendar? A whole season ago?

I'm not sure what kind of award there is out there for me, but in the meantime, I'm borrowing keeping Erin's procrastination award. Because, frankly, I think I deserve it.

If you read the small print, here is what it says... I'll find a picture for it later... Jump over to Erin's blog and ask her if she's found that picture yet. **HINT HINT She hasn't!

Thanks for the awards, Erin, and next time (if there is a next time), I'll try not to appear so ungrateful by waiting four months to acknowledge them!

ME!!! My friend Ace over at If You Think Round Is Funny... sent me this award--my very first (or so I thought--explanation following). Now I get to pass the fun on to others. So here goes...

For this award, save the picture and add it to your blog, then in a post, acknowledge the blog and blogger who gave you the award. Be sure to post a link to his/her blog (If You Think Round Is Funny...). Next, pass the award on to 15 other blogs that you love to read. (I know I can't count, because I don't have 12 blogs listed below.) And be sure you let everyone know that you've given them an award! Have fun!

Here are the blogs I love:
Erin at Ben + Erin = Samantha & Ryan
Becky at The Swanson Six
Vijini at Life on Earth with God's Grace
Jessica at Is It Nap Time Yet?
Katie at A Day In The Life
Sharalee at A Tale of Three Kiddies
Nicole at The Chronicles of My Three Peanuts
Sara at Domestically Challenged?
Ashley at Let Go, Laughing
Adrienne at Another Ordinary Miracle
Kristin at Girly Girl
Raechel at Finding My Feet

So to those of you who give me reason to procrastinate something to look forward to (reading your blog updates), THANK YOU!!
