Been Away AND Been Getting Awards :)

IN THE NEWS: Ala. man attacked with Worcestershire sauce bottle. Read more HERE.

Well, when I said I would be on a little blogging break, I actually meant a BIG blogging break. :)

First, I had to get ready for vacation. Then I actually was on vacation. And then when I came back, I forgot about my blog. (Which is hilarious, considering my last post was about how much I do not neglect my blog)


Anyway, guess where I was.
Go ahead. Guess.

**drumming fingers on on desktop**

Oh, all right I'll tell you. I was in Disney World!!! For the third time in four years

*cough, cough*
I love Walt Disney World, but I can officially say that I am now Disneyed OUT. There are only so many times I can get dragged on the Winnie the Pooh ride. I reached that max.

We had a great time and actually were very fortunate with the weather, since Orlando isn't exactly a hot zone right now. And at least there was no snow.

Anyhew...that's where I was in case you missed my smiling black and white cocked head on your blog posts. :)

But right before I went away, I racked up some serious blog awards! I don't have to give them back because I didn't blog for so long, right?
I'll take that as a "No, you do not have to give them back. Don't be silly". Oh, good.

So here we go:

Thank you to my writing buds, Bella McFarland and C.D. Yates for my Superior Scribbler award!

Thank you!!!

Big hearty thanks to fellow blogging bud, Kim Franklin who snuck not one but TWO blogging awards on me. The Over the Top award and the From Me to You award.

She's a tricky woman. :)

And big shout out to Anne Riley who was so kind to bestow the Sugar Doll Ward to me.

Thanks, Sugar!

And lastly, a big smooch to Catherine Denton for giving me the Happy Award. Which makes me so... happy. :)

Now I will not pass on those awards, but I will pass out a NEW award (because I'm such a rebel and I love the colors in it.) :)

The Butterfly Award.

This is a meme award and the rules for passing it on are:

1. Put the logo on your blog .
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. Award up to ten other blogs.
4. Add links to those blogs on yours.
5. Leave a message for your awardees on their blogs.

Yes, the Butterfly Award for those blogs that are so cool that my eyes get frostbite each time I read one of their cool posts. Yes, I'm exaggerating slightly. :)
Please do not be offended because the English on this award is so... not good. LOL

Anyway, I now give this award to:

Did I miss anyone? Yes, I probably did. But I had to make a short list, which was hard because I think every blog I follow is the coolest.

Have a great writing day!

oooo I love Disney World :-) But I can see how too many rides with Winnie could get tiring :-)

How nice though, to come back and have all these awards to give out!

Jen said...

I love Disney World as well!!! I look forward to visiting again next year, so I'm glad you enjoyed it!!!

What a nice thing to come back too! Who doesn't love awards?! You certainly racked them up as well! Congratulations to you and the other winners!

Shucks woman, I don't want to give you frostbite. :D I'm honored and it's a pretty award, but I'm with you on the grammar. Cracking me up.

You are the cool one! You!

Karen Lange said...

Congrats to you and the winners! Glad you had a good time on your trip.
Have a wonderful week!

Joanne said...

Welcome back, sounds like an amazing getaway. And how cool to come back to all those Awards? Congrats!

Stephanie Faris said...

Thank you for the award! I'm putting it on my blog now. Yeah, I'm not sure how us writers can handle grammar like that!

Kimberly Franklin said...

Thanks, you're a doll! I'm happy you had fun at Disney world... lucky! ; )

Tess said...

Disney world? How cool is THAT?!?

way better than the snow and ice we have here. way, way better.

Tamika: said...

Missed you Jennifer! Disney World is my dream family vacation- I pray we make it that way soon!

Thanks for the award hun- you are too kind! And don't feel bad about forgetting about your blog, I've did it this morning!haa!

Anonymous said...

I love Disney World too! I am glad you had a great time and got away for a while! But I'm glad you are back too I've missed your blogs :) *hugs* Jordana

Karen said...

Oooh, I love Disney World! I'm so jealous!

Bethany Mattingly said...

Congrats to you and the winners!

T. Anne said...

Huge congrats on your awards and huge thank you for my super cool award!!!! XOXOX

Glad you caught a break in life even if it was at DIsney. DId your family rent those cool seguae's? (sp?)
Last year our family had passes to Disneyland and my husband never want's to set foot in that park again. Even after I let him eat ice cream for dinner every time we went. A lot of good that did.

Sarah Forgrave said...

Welcome back! My mom moved to FL last year, 30 minutes from Disney World...Guess where most of our trips will take place now? :-)

Kristi said...

WEEEE! Thanks for the award! I love it!!! And now I have an easy post day. ;-)

Ahhh...Disney World. It's been a while since I've been but I get the feeling once my son is older he will take care of that. But what I really want to know is - can you really have too much Winnie the Pooh? Really? It has to be better than Barney...which has been banned by my husband at our house.

GLAD to have you back!

Diane said...

Glad you're back, missed you. :O)

Laura Pauling said...

Congrats on all the awards! And it must be good to get home! :)

patti said...

Jennifer, SO FUN! We went to DW twice, and while I wouldn't trade the two trips for ANYTHING, I have had enough--until grandkids come along!!

Blessings and welcome back!!!

Kristen Torres-Toro said...

So glad you had a great trip--and that's pretty funny!

Julie Dao said...

Congrats on all of your awards! And Disney World ... I was just there in September! LOVE that place. :) Glad you had a good trip!

Kristin Rae said...

Thank you so much!! This totally made my Monday!! (bad grammar and all!)

I think I've been to Disney World at least twice in the past 3 years, and I'm going again in May (hopefully Universal's Islands of Adventure will have the Harry Potter section complete by then!!!). I could go every year and never get tired of it. Do we get to see any pictures?!?!

Kara said...

Congrats on the blog awards and I'm glad you're back:)

DL Hammons said...

My wife is a Disney fiend! I mean our honeymoon was even at Disney World!!

Congrats on your awards, and the ladies you bestowed them on. That's a seriously group of classy ladies there. :)

coffeelvnmom said...

Wow what a great bunch of awards you received! Congrats! Aren't blog friends the *best*? Thanks for mine, I'll make sure to post about it in the next few days.

Glad the weather was nice in Florida. I can't imagine how exhausted you must have been at the end of that trip - we have Disneyland here and I'm just going to say, I don't go often for that very reason! (And DW is WAY bigger!)

Have a great week!

Jessica said...

Woohoo on the awards! I can't believe you were so close on your vacation! And that you forgot your blog. tsk, tsk. LOL
Glad you're back. :-)

Jemi Fraser said...

Congrats on the awards :)

I'm so jealous about Disney World. I've been a big Mickey fan for... well, forever. And I've never been able to go. My kids laugh when they say they've long outgrown the Disney online store, but I haven't. Can you ever outgrow Disney??? I think not!

Susan R. Mills said...

Welcome back, and congrats on the many awards!

Tiffany Neal said...

Awww. Disney World. Lucky Duck! And congrats on the awards!! :)) Welcome back!
