Awards and a Little Piece of Cake

My fellow bloggers have been VERY generous with me this
week. I have received 3, yes, count them , 3 awards from
some special ladies...and a CAKE!!!

The first award comes from Nernia at NicNacManiac. She's
fairly new to the blogging scene and she's doing a wonderful
job. You should all pop in and say hello and see what she's up
to. Now Nernia didn't pass along any specific rules as to how
many people I had to pass this to, so I'm going to pass it along
to ONE special blogger that is just beginning HER blogging
journey. Martha at Martha's Favorites. Her blog is also a
LOVELEIGH place to visit and I always get a little eye candy
in the form of her adorable little cherub of a grandson, Noah.

So Martha, this Lovely Blog Award is yours to pa
ss along to
as many bloggers as you like. All you need to do is

1. post the picture of the award
2. name and link to the person you received it fro
3. list the names of the people you wish to pass it along to and
add their links and notify them to come and collect
the award.

This award is called the "Primos Dardo" which roughly
translates to "Top Dart". The award acknowledges the values
that every blogger shows in his or her effort to transmit
cultural, ethical, literacy and personal values every day.

I was presented this award by Charity at Thoughts
byCharityJoyBell. Charity has a truly amazing bl
og full
of deep thoughts that make you look into your own soul to
ask questions and she writes some beautiful poetry to boot!

I would like to pass this award along to TWO people.

The first is Beverly from How Sweet The Sound. Most of us
know and love her as the force behind the phenomenon,
Pink Saturday. I can only imagine the hard work, dedication
and perseverance it takes to pull off Pink Saturday every
weekend. She is a true gem and a creative geniu
s for thinking
of something so special that it can bring together so many,
from so far, all together at one time.

The second person is Gin from All's Fair in Love & Alcohol. Gin
shares her highly personal story with each post she writes.
Her bravery and courageous spirit amaze and inspire me
every day. You should stop in and see her, she will inspire
you too.

Here are the rules to acceptance...

1. accept your award
2. name and link to the person you received it from
3. award it to 15 others who are worthy to receive it and let
them know

* I know it gets a little bit sketchy here. You should all know
by now that I don't always follow the rules pertaining to
awards and once again I broke the rules. I'm only passing the
award on to 2 instead of 15. While I think you ALL are
deserving, I wanted to chose a couple that m
eant the most
to me. I think it makes the award a bit more special as well.
It's NOT because I'm too lazy to do the whole 15. Well, maybe
just a smidge, I've just put in four 12 hour days babysitting the
Man Cub so I'm feeling the effects!

Now THIS little yummy here is not so much an award as a
special little something sweet to brighten someone's day.
This delicious idea is the brainchild of the previously mentioned
Charity. Here are her rules, which I will TRY with ALL my
might to follow to a T!

1. If you want to get and receive cake, copy and paste the
code into your post or onto your sidebar (your choice)
2. Say "Thank You" to the person who gave you the cake!
3. Pass the cake along (by copying and pasting the code into
your post) to only one other person. You pass
the cake by
linking to the blog and then notifying them that he/she "has
got the cake"
4. Tell the cake recipient the rules

Charity passed the cake on to Jennifer, who in turn passed it
to me and I LOVE cake so I graciously accept this gorgeous,
sugary, heart topped creation with GLEE as I say Thank You
Jennifer! I will pass the cake along to Alli, who deserves it as
she ushers in her 21st Birthday. I hope your Birthday is as
sweet as th
is cake Alli!

Now last but not least, tonight I got tagged with the honest
scrap award AGAIN! Sweet Nernia tagged me and I willingly
oblige. However, this time I will BEND the rules and send you
to a former post HERE to get all the scoop on me. I did this in
a previous post already. In fact I think my blog was newly
public at the time so this will be new information to everyone
but a few people. I'm just not up to coming up with 10 MORE
things about me. I had a hard enough time with the first 10.
Not to mention all that typing, but no, I'm NOT lazy, LOL!

I'll pass this on to any of you that haven't played this yet. It
is fun to do and I would love to learn more about you if you
chose to share.

*Please note that if you are an award free blog, you are not
obligated to accept, I understand. Just know that I think you
deserving and continue to look forward to reading more from

I had no idea my Le Cake Day would be such a hit! In fact, after I created the Le Cake Day, I thought about discontinuing it! If not for everybody's encouraging remarks, I would have!

Today, it's Le Cake Day again! I've sent out another cake!!! And added a new rule, just so nobody gets hungry!!! hee hee hee! The new rule is anyone dying for some cake can leave the magic words "pretty please" in a comment at any time, and I'll serve up some cake to that person! hee hee...I came up with this, because everybody wanted cake yesterday! :)

Watch out for this new cake! Who knows! It might just come around YOUR way! :))
