Making Lemons!


I am so darn proud and honoured to say that I have received my very first blog award! I am blushing from head to toe. The extremely coveted Lemonade Award was given to me by none other than Lana at The Kids Did What?! Check out her blog when you get the chance. It's hilarious, always good, and Canadian to boot, eh (that's my Ottawa Valley accent, in case I totally confused you there, eh)! Thank you so much, Lana! Because of you, I am no longer a blog award virgin.

Now, don't ask me what this award means, because I don't really know. So I'm going to make it up...The Lemonade Award is given to any blogger you think rocks, makes lemonade out of lemon, or looks good in a Speedo. So, again, thanks, Lana!

Rules of receiving this muchly coveted award:

First, you should give some lovin' back to the blogger who so thoughtfully gave you the award in the first place, which I have done above. Second, you nominate 10 of your favourite bloggers to next receive this award. Now, before I announce the winners (or perhaps wieners?), I'd just like to say that it's pretty much impossible to simply choose 10 blogs you love. They're all great, really. Each one is so different, so unique, that to choose only 10 out of thousands is like asking a dog to choose one rawhide bone at the local PetSmart, or like asking your child to choose his or her favourite chore to do, or like asking your husband to rub your feet without expecting sex in return. You get the picture.

So, after much fretting and dawdling, I have narrowed the winners down to 10. The lucky buggers are (in absolutely no particular order, except perhaps the way they popped into my brain after my 10th vodka and tonic):

  1. Adlibby from Adlibby on the Loose
  2. Nadine at All Along the Hightower
  3. Lynette at Lynette's L.A.M. Blog
  4. blueviolet at A Nut in a Nutshell
  5. Eudea-Mamia at Life, Liberty and the Pursuit...
  6. Alicia at Yaya Stuff
  7. Shupe at Shupe's Refuge
  8. Bon Don at Who Throws a Cupcake? Honestly
  9. Georgie at Decisionally Challenged
  10. Cheryl at The Daily Blonde

Congrats to all! I can't wait for the next one! Bring it on!

Congratulations to you on the award!! Just the sentence about foot rubbing and sex is worthy of one - brilliant. And why my husband never gets to touch my feet.

Thanks so much for passing it on to me. I so, so appreciate it!! Honest - I'm always blown away when other great bloggers find my typing worthy. It means more to me than you know.

Can't wait to read the other winners. Come on nap time!!
Thank you. I just received this lemonade award today on another blog so I'm wondering if my recent sour disposition has caused this. :)
Kidding!
THANK YOU! You're awesome. I'm terrible with the posting of awards with a list of things...but I do now have a networking page that I add the awards to with a link to your blog. :) I'll do that today and add you to my blog roll.

You rock. Happy 2009

Congrats on not being a virgin anymore! Blog award virgin that is.

I don't mind that you didn't pick me for that award one little bit. Nope I don't mind. But just for that your letter for your Letter Post is "X". Haha! Just kidding. You have the letter "P". Let me know when you do the post. I am curious if you think it was a tricky as I did.

Yaya said…
Thank you!!!!

(when are we going out for lemonade together!?)
Thanks!!!
So I was at luau in Hawaii sittin' next to a couple of women from Canada...They were chattin' back and forth with each other...sometimes in english some things in french. So I had to ask where they were from..."We are from Ottawa!"
"Me Too!!"
"Oh Really!!"
"Yep! Ottawa County Oklahoma!"
They looked at me liked I just said I came from Mars.

Am I missin' something here??

I came back to see the rules for this and I could have sworn I posted a comment with my thanks to you here! Where the heck did I post it? Maybe I just emailed you. Sheesh, I need to get it together. I'll post this on my awards page with a link to you! Thank you so much!
