Shiny Stuff: Part Two

I have to hand it to Trooper Thorn, he definitely got me spot on in his award description...I have to include what he wrote about me, it makes me smile :)

As though she was emulating another young woman trying to make it on her own, Jaina can "take a a nothing day and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile." Plus she could use some more visitors. And I'm betting an apartment make-over by IKEA.

Isn't he sweet? I was absolutely tickled to receive this from him. I mean, you've gotta love a Mary Tyler Moore reference. And while I LOVE my apartment, he's not wrong about the Ikea make-over.

Here are the rules that go along with this beautiful award:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons 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.”

And without further ado and in no particular order, I'd like to pass this award along to the following friendly, exceedingly charming bloggers...

~ Momo over at Momo Fali's : Such a sweet blogger, she always has nice words for everyone. Her son has been sick I truly admire her spirit and determination, she is most definitely deserving of this award.

~ GG's Mama over at Thing One, Thing Two, A Thing Or Two : One of my favorite blogs, I love GG's Mama and all of her stories about her twins, G1 and G2. Both girls are absolutely beautiful and I love her updates about their growth and progress and how she recognizes their individuality and cherishes them both.

~ Petunia over at Petunia in Paradise : Sophisticated and beautiful but completely down to earth. Petunia is a new addition to my reader and I absolutely love her. And she taught me about a Jewish celebration too, now I know :)

~ Latte Mommy over at Latte Mommy : This caffeinated mom's got it all down, and to top it off, she just got back from what sounds like an AMAZING vacation. I'm definitely jealous. She always has thoughtful, well-written posts and I think she definitely deserves this award.

~ Joy over at Joy the Baker : Is there anything more beautiful than the things this girl comes up with? I drool everytime I read her scrumptious blog. If you haven't met her, do go visit, you won't be sorry.

~ April over at Thoughts in My Tumultuous Brain : Love this girl, you never know what she's going to write about, but it's ALWAYS great. I love her variety and her unique perspectives on life and everything in it.

~ Cheryl over at Wishing and Discovering : This beautiful mother has so many things on her plate, I don't know how she does it, but she does it with love and a smile. She is one of the strongest, most resilient bloggers I've been lucky enough to know.

~OHMommy over at Classy Chaos : Last but never least, the fabulous, stilleto clad OHMommy and her unrivaled classy blog. I would love to live a week in her household, it sounds so exciting and classy. She keeps a beautiful blog with her wonderful children and when I saw this award, I thought of her.

You are absolutely so sweet! I haven't had an award since the last blue ribbon I got for swim team in sixth grade so thanks! Now, I must find eight blogs to read and award myself. You are such a loyal reader and I thank you. Fully intending to read more, blog more, respond more blogs in the future. Best,

Jaina said...

Momo - You're welcome, I'm glad you're smiling. :)

GGsMama - You definitely deserve this one. :)
