Sunshiny, Beautiful Blog Awards

I have awards!  Scrumptious, yummy Bloggy awards, which I do not think this blog has ever seen.  They're fun and encouraging and I appreciate being thought of by the bestowers of said awards.  And I think I may have made that word up. 

 April, over at ElCloud Homeschool, has awarded me with the Sunshine Award!

Michelle, at A Life Better Than I Deserve, has awarded me with the Beautiful Blogger Award.

Some days we blog and review and put our hearts out to whomever decides to read and we wonder if we're encouraging or helping anyone at all.  It's nice to have someone acknowledge your existence in the huge Internet 'verse.  These cute little awards are a great way for bloggers to express appreciation to each other.  Thanks, guys!

As part of the Sunshine Award, I am to share 7 things with you all and then pass it on to 7 bloggers. For the Beautiful Blogger Award, I am to share 7 more things and then pass it on to no more than 15 bloggers.  That's a lot of stuff about me and a lot of bloggers.  We'll do the speed version.

About Me: 1. I have green eyes. 2. I bite my nails, I grow my nails, I bite my nails. Current status: bit. 3. I am currently drinking coffee from my much loved Shakespearean Insult Mug. 4. I should be lesson planning and am doing this instead. 5. I worry that the only thing I really do well as a mother is worry. 6. I'm Irish. Please, don't kiss me. 7. I'm super excited about the Narnia Unit Study we are working through this year. 8. We start school September 7th and typically follow the public school schedule. Ish. 9. I like steak. 10. I hate white walls. 11. I recently discovered that I prefer almond M&M's to peanut. Who knew. 12. Borders is my favorite hang out. 13. I want everyone to get along and be happy, my ulcer attests to the fact that this isn't how life works. 14. I hate goodbyes.

And the Sunshine Award (I kept it to homeschooling blogs) goes to....drumroll... 1. Lizzie @ A Work In Progress 2. Terri @ Accidentally Homeschooling 3. Debra @ Footprints in the Butter 4. Nikki @ Joy in the Journey 5. Lis @ Acorns ... and our TOS fearless leaders 6. Heidi @ Reviews & Reflections 7. Brenda @ Garden of Learning

The Beautiful Blogger Award will also be given to my local fearless leaders, who do a great job with our support group and who are both really beautiful people- 1. Lizzie @ A Work In Progress 2. Terri @ Accidentally Homeschooling

Congratulations my dear deserving friend!! I am so happy for you! And as I am reading I get to the end....
You gave me awards!!! I am so thrilled it is silly. I swung over to read about yours and secretly I was just a little sad because I had never received one. Bless your heart Lori.

Thank you:)
I am also an on again/off again nail biter. Mine are currently bitten off. Maybe it has something to do with the time of year it is?!!!

Well! How DID I miss this???

Ah.. I know.. I was camping that week (Or getting ready to go camping and dropping off a Japanese exchange student....) Anyway, somehow, in the midst of crazy "End of Summer" last year, you sweetly bestowed the Sunshine Award on me, and I totally missed it! (Snort!)

How did I just see it now, you ask? I was checking out past posts, trying to figure out which one I like best....

So... shall I keep this going? ;)
