Awards All Around!


So, I've been awarded the "I
4 times recently! And for me, this is very exciting! (because it proves that you are still reading -- even though many of you NEVER leave me some Blog Love in the form of a comment! Busted!!!!!)

I received the award first from my dear friend, Jamie. Who I miss so much. Who I am compulsively addicted to checking her blog multiple times a day, just in case she posts twice. (which she often does, darn overachiever!) Hee hee hee!

So, one day I am checking her blog and I find my self nestled just after Cathy Zielski in the list, with the sweetest sentiment ever!

Here's what she said, "Roxann Walker - Because she's embedded herself in my heart like a tick in a hound's butt. (I don't really know what that means, but it sounds pretty profound right?)"

Seriously, I laughed out loud!!! But if you know Jamie, than you know that this a serious declaration of love and adoration!! (but, do not hug her!)

Then, within days, I hear from another Savannah friend and inspirational scrapper, Deiha, that she has chosen me for the I Love Your Blog" award. Short and Sweet, but still means so much! Thanks, D! Seriously miss scrappin' with you!!

And just when I was realizing that I was running hugely behind with listing those two awards, I received the "I Love Your Blog" award a third time from a super sweet, very talented scrapper that I've had the pleasure of getting to know better this year, Kory Dordea! Thanks, Kory! And congrats on the baby!! :)

And before Robin realized I suck for forgetting her in this list, she also nominated me for this award IN THIS POST! Aw, Robin, please forgive me! You know I am one of your blog stalkers and art admirers. I just really do suck! So, everyone go check out ROBIN'S BLOG here and leave her a comment! She's starved for attention like me!
(We know people stalk us, but no one ever comments. So, make her day and do it! :)

*So now that I know I'm loved I'm gonna pay it forward by following these rules:

(1) The winner can put the logo on their blog. (2) Link the person you received your award from. (3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs. (4) Put links of those on yours. (5) Leave a message on the blogs of the girls or boys you’ve nominated.

Since I knocked out #'s 1 and 2, let's see what we can do about numbers 3, 4 and 5!

Here's the thing, since I was nominated 3 times, do I nominate 7 blogs or 28 blogs?

Oh, the dilemma's of life.....

Well, I think should do 7, so I'll just start nominating those!!

My Blog Stalk List:

#1 - Emilie Ahern. I stinkin' love this girl! She is so funny. So smart. She cooks and teaches me how to freeze stuff on her "Freeze Happy" blog. And, she's a wicked cool scrapbooker! And she has two of the cutest redheaded girls you ever saw! And when I was able to meet her at CKC-Valley Forge...she forever implanted herself in my heart! What else do you need for a good blog?!? She's got it all!

#2 - Jamie Danford. Former owner of Savannah Scrapbooker. Fruit loop lover. Fabulous scrapbooker. Inspiring "Try-It Tuesday" poster. Mother. Wife to a redneck. Funny. Beautiful. And my good friend. As I mentioned above, I stalk her several times a day. Love ya girl!

#3 - Amber Winward. Oh, where do I even begin to share my love for this girl?!?! My Mormonlicious friend. One that teaches me about faith. Fellow mother of four. Cute kids and a seriously cute baby! Hilariously funny! Kick butt scrapbooker! And inspiring in so many ways! And after this Summer, one hell of a SURVIVOR!!!!! (((huge hugs to you, my friend)))

#4 - Sherry Piper. This girl is like the sister I never had. We are so alike and yet, so different. We are kinda like a Reese Peanut Butter Cup. Chocolate and Peanut Butter are good alone, but FABULOUS TOGETHER!! We have matching tattoos, which will always bond us together! I miss you, Sherry!! (but we'll always have Charlotte!)

#5 - Tam at Momma Song. Because sometimes she's funny. Sometimes introspective. Sometimes just talking about life with her two crazy boys. (aka...the natives) Because she brought me through my years in Georgia. And because I brought her through pregnancy and single motherdom (due to deployment.) And because I miss her, too.

#6 - Kate O'Brien. Kate must be included on my list because I love her blog. She's so fantastic. My favorite thing about Kate is that she inspires me! I like how her work is so REAL and True and Honest. And back before she became the "next big thing" in the scrapbooking world, she offered to build my original super cute blog banner/blog for me and I was a perfect stranger. Over time she became my friend. I wish her only the best. Now, why is her blog down, you ask? Well, because of snarky, hateful women. That's why. If, and when her blog is back, I'll be adding it to my blogroll. (with Kate's permission, of course!)

#7 - Kory Dordea. Kory is such a sweet girl. She's a great scrapbooker. And she's finally beat the battle with infertility and is pregs w/ her first child.

Other faves of note: Check my blogroll on the side --------------------------------->

Girl! You're wicked cool!

I also got nominated a few times so I will just leave a comment here instead and say you are AMAZING!!!!

Also, I agree. People who don't comment suck. I get around 400 visitors each day and receive about 5 comments.


Robin said...

Okay...I am leaving a comment and giving you blog love. But, sniff sniff, you forgot that I also nominated your blog with the same award last week. I'm not feeling the love, Rox! lol
I love reading your stories and I often email and tell you. I am one of those blog addicts that just reads and rarely comments. I will try to do better, I promise. But, if it makes you feel any better, I get tons of visitors but very few comments.

OK as I wipe away the TEARS that have fallen on my keyboard so that I can type you a Thank YOU to YOU!!!!!!! OOOOOO Thank YOU and Thank YOU!!!!
