Awards for me, and for you!

A HUGE thank you to Tami over at Hearts Make Families for giving me two wonderful awards recently.

First she passed along the Best Blog Award.

And then she gave me the One Lovely Blog Award.

I am encouraged to accept these awards and post them on my blog. I also (of course!) have to include a link back to the blog I received them from. So if you'd like to visit Tami, and I strongly suggest you do, check her out here:

Hearts Make Families

Then I would be encouraged to pass the award along to 15 (!!!! I'm going to reduce that number, as I don't think I've got that many newly found blogs to celebrate right now!) blogs I have just recently discovered and be sure to contact them to let them know they have been awarded!! This part can be difficult, but I think since both of these awards go to new and recent blogs I have found, I should have a handful I can pass them along to.

So, here's my list, I hope you enjoy them as I have:

1. Discovering Me ~ A blog by NYC girl, who, being one myself, has captured my attention with her fun blog!

2. Smart Pumpkin Patch ~ Great activities for toddlers from a real mom!

3. Mama's Losin' It ~ I am quickly addicted to this blog and her weekly writing meme. Definitely check it out!

4. The Bloggerhood of the Traveling Not So Fat Pants ~ looking for a way to find yourself a pair of jeans to grow out of [in a good way?] Check out what's happening here!

5. Girlichef ~ Absolute Yum. Great pictures, great recipes, great stuff.

6. Adventuroo ~ The adventures of a friend, she gives you a play-by-play of some great things to do in the outdoors, along with wonderful pictures.

And to my nominees, please know that I offer these awards with no obligation for you to pass them along, etc. The first time I received awards I was so overwhelmed that I didn't do anything for a while, and then I posted a thank you, but I never passed them along. Today I'm feeling motivated, so I'm passing them on to you fine bloggers, but if you don't do the same I won't be upset, hurt or anything like that. The LAST thing I want is to cause you any undue pressure! Blog without obligation!!! I know I do! :)

*Adding, I have to say it felt very odd and a little cheesy to be posting on these blogs to tell them that *I* gave them an award. I hope that you bloggers know I really don't mean this to be a pain, but just wanted to let you know I love your blogs!
