Next JO tagged me as well, with the seven weird things about me MeMe. Luckily for YOU, I have already done this one...so you can go here, if you missed it.

Then, Deb gave me the integrity award. WOW, Deb...you are just so sweet to me. I am not sure I deserve such a good blogging friend like you. :) This award was created by The Little Aussie Cynic.



Here's Aussie's post:
"After looking, reading and watching many many Blogs and bloggers I decided to issue some recognition to those fellow bloggers I feel maintain integrity in the Blogs.
All these bloggers incorporate within their wonderful sites, an integrity not always seen. They share terrific stories, topics, discussions and images. All Well worth a look."


I'd like to pass this award on to:

-Megan at Sorta Crunchy.
-David at Authorsblog.
-Michelle at Big Blueberry Eyes.
-Melissa at A Writers Woolgatherings.
-Bradley at the Egels nest.

And... Speaking of Bradley from the Egels nest, he passed on a very special award to me as well.

-Deb at Mom of 3 Girls.
-Autumn at Exploring Autumn.
-Julie at Corbett Capers.

********************************************************
Lastly I got a very special award from JO! It is really a blessing to know that sometimes I can make someone laugh. Life Is GOOD!



I'd like to pass this on to the following people that have made me giggle, laugh or snort (Jo and I read a lot of the same blogs...so she already gave this award to several of my funny friends.)

-Megan at FriedOkra
-Dolly at Oh How My Winter Nights Fly
-Mama Zen

Whew....It is like WAYYYYYYYYYY past my bedtime...and I still have 54 blog posts to read. eeekkkkk! Happy friday everyone!

Morning! I love your new masthead. Sugar is so pretty and so darn cute. I can totally see why you say you want to eat her up.

Megan (FriedOkra) said...

Oh My Heavens! Thank you so much, Corey. I don't know how you plan to read all those blogposts without your head attached but I will say you definitely have the googly eyes for the job! :)

Anna said...

I clicked over from Bradley's. Congrats on your awards! That last one is funny.

Deb - Mom of 3 Girls said...

Oh, thank you - you are so sweet. And I love the new header, what a wonderful photo! :)

Autumn said...

Oh my! Congrats on your awards this week. And wow, my very first blogger award. You are so good to me my friend. :)

mama bear said...

8 is my favorite number! Whew! That was a long post! How do you find time to read everyone's posts? I don't think I could add anymore to my plate. Although I would love to read all the posts of your blogging community, especially the funny ones. I need to try and sleep less but I can't survive on less than 8, preferably 10/12 hours sleep!

Congratulations on all your awards. You deserve them and as always you are the best photographer I know.

Melissa Garrett said...

What a post! And I am SO honored that you consider me a blogger with integrity - it means to much when others recognize that yes, I do have standards and try to maintain them. Thank you!

PS - I say frequently also something along the lines of, "Can you please say that in your normal voice." Although I think it comes out, "CAN YOU PLEASE STOP YELLING?!"
