Awards Galore!

Well it has definitely been a busy couple of months for me so I do apologize for not recognizing these awards earlier. Even though it takes me awhile to get to posting recognition for these I want to let you know that they really do mean the world to me! It is so fun to go to view your comments and see that you've been given an award! Gee Wiz, it just makes me all tingly inside!

So without further is what I received!

The Literary Blogger Award was given to me by TexasRed Books, Desert Rose Booklogue and Stacy's Bookblog. Thanks so much! Here is what the award signifies:

The Literary Blogger Award acknowledges bloggers who energize & inspire reading by going the extra mile. These amazing bloggers make reading fun & enhance the delight of reading!

I have also been honored by receiving One Lovely Blog Award from Historically Obsessed. Thanks so much for thinking of me Lizzy!

I also received the You Don't Say Award from She Reads and Reads. Avis has an awesome blog and you can't help but leave a comment on one of her posts...check it out!

I recently received the Kreativ Blogger award from Laura's Reviews. I feel very honored to receive this one since I consider myself to be one of the least creative people I know! I am supposed to share seven of my favorite things, so here they are:

My husband
My kids
Movie nights with my family
Lazy days on the lake with friends and family
Bon Jovi
My book club

And now I have received the Queen of all Things Awe-Summm award from A Novel Menagerie. Now that's it, I have finally arrived! This is quite hillarious as I am known as the office 'princess' at my place of employment. Wait until they hear that I have been promoted to a Queen! So now I have to share seven Awe-Summm thing about myself, and I am not really one for tooting my own horn, but I will give it a shot.

1. I'm a good cook-My daughter wanted me to add "when you cook that is." lol
I have definitely come a long way from when all I could manage on the stove was hot dogs and beans!

2. Good listener-When people talk to me I take the time to listen.

3. I'm committed-If I say I will do something for you, I will get it done when I say it will be done. Ok...I have been known to be a day or two late on a book review.

4. Good friend-I am there for my friends in good times and bad.

5. I'm faithful-To God, my family, and my friends.

6. I'm an organizer-I've organized my book club, a birthday club, and several other occasions for my friends and family to get together and have fun.

7. Unselfish-At least my husband says so!

So I want to pass the Queen of All Things Awe-Summm to the following blogs:

Historically Obsessed
Savvy Verse and Wit
Reading Extravaganza
TexasRed Books
A Circle of Books
Peeking Between the Pages
Laura's Reviews

If you aren't familiar with some of these blogs, please check them out. They all have something wonderful and fun to share almost every day. Thanks so much for thinking that I deserve all of these awards...they really mean a lot to me!

Congrats on all the awards Jo-Jo- they are well deserved! Thanks so much for awarding me the Queen of all Things Awe-Summm award. I appreciate it so much. I love your awe-summmm things. It may take me a while to think up some-it's hard to come up with them about yourself-much easier when you get to talk about someone else. Thanks so much for thinking of me!
