Housekeeping with a Thankful Heart

You know how sometimes your heart feels too full for words? That’s how I felt this Thanksgiving season. Like my cup over floweth, and I can’t describe with words all that I am thankful for.

I think it’s only fair that since I’m keeping my inner most thankful thoughts to myself, I should finally thank all of you for all the bloggy goodness you’ve been throwing my way over the past few months in the form of awards and bloggy comments. I’m sure it’s no surprise that I’m guilty of hoarding awards once again. Sigh.

Here’s my stash along with the wonderful bloggers that gave them to me…….thank you!

All three of the above from Susie at Susie’s Homemade.


Kasey at Chronicles of a Mommy

This sweet thang was bestowed upon me by Migraine Mom.
Amy at Escape Into My Thoughts
Simply AnonyMom
Lele at Phillips 101
Esme’s mom at MoziEsme
Three under Two over at Lit and Laundry gave me this one.

Jyl at Mommy Gossip gave me this one way back in August.
Now, I’ve been agonizing over who to give each award to, and then I came upon this brilliant award giving idea at Jiggety Jigg’s Blog.

So, without further ado, the winners (feel free to take any/all that you are in need of) are those of you who fit any of the following criteria:

1. Your first name has more than 3 letters, but less than 10.
2. It has at least 2 vowels.
3. One of the consonants is an N, S, or T. Or, B, C, D, F, G, H, J, K, L, M, P, Q, R, V, W, X, Z.
4. When you write your first name backwards, it does NOT spell out any evil messages of any kind.
(All rules negotiable and subject to change without notice. Void where prohibited.)

THANKS for being such good cyber friends to me. I am so thankful for all of you!

    Please come by and check out my blog to see what I did with all your awards that you were so willing to share. I didn’t keep them for me, but found my own way to pass them on. By the way, you can pick this up too because it’s meant to come right back at you!!
