I'm sooo very special

Well my mom and dad always told me that I was anyway ;-) No, in all seriousness, I do feel very special on many days. I have been awarded with a couple of things, and I've also received a tag.



First off Katie A thrifty Girl's Guide to the Kitchen gave me two awards!! Thanks Katie - sorry for the delay in posting these!!! You ladies need to check out Katie's blog...she has WONDERFUL ideas!!!!!



This award's rules are:

1. Put the logo on your blog or post
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs that show an attitude of gratitude
3. Link to your nominees within your post
4. Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received this award
5. Share the love and link to this post and the person who nominated you for the award.
6. Tell us how you've come to have an attitude of gratitude
I have a attitude of gratitude because of my family – husband, kiddos – sisters/brothers…mothers/dads. I feel like I am very blessed – my mom and dad raised me to always respect, and have gratitude. I try to teach my children the same way. I am blessed, and very happy, I don’t think I could ask for more.






Next Katie gave me this one!!!
Here are the rules:


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 ribbon of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
