Not one, not two, but 3 posts in one!

Sorry about this sooper dooper long post. It started out with my Gorgeous Blogger Award, then I was tagged so I figured I would add it on and then this happened:

A very dear friend of mine did a post on me and I want all of you to meet her. I know that several of you know her already and you know how wonderful she is. Drum roll please.....
(click here to read the post or click on her button to check out her blog)


Head on over and meet her adorable daughter Alyce.

AMY I WANT TO THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.

SO I AM GIVING THIS AWARD TO ~ AMY ~

Also I am going to ask my newest followers to grab it too.


*************************


Thank you Kristie at Kristie's Notes for tagging me ~ I'm it!
(Go check out her photo too!)


Here are the directions...
1) Go to your photo files, select the 8th photo folder.
2) Select the 8th photo in that folder.
3) Post that photo along with the story behind it.
4) Then challenge 8 blogging friends to do the same!



This was not easy and for the life of me I can't get this picture to turn. This picture is #9 in folder #8. The #8 was a picture of my friends children so I couldn't do that, she has a private blog.

This is our tree from Christmas '08. There are about 40 less ornaments compared to my '09 tree. This is pretty much self explanatory isn't it? Sorry it's so boring, unless Skye comes up in a picture I can't post any family pictures. (I promised)

So a few months ago I started giving my awards to my newest followers so ladies and gentlemen, as of yesterday, grab this tag because your it! Well I have had over 40 since my last award posted on March 6th. (linking them was just too overwhelming for me) I am going to go over and tell each of them that I have a tag for them if they want to play along and that they can take the above award also. So head on over to my Google Friend Connect board to go over and meet my new followers. It is basically the whole page you see so click on them and say Hello! Thank you for following me, I really appreciate all of my followers. (I think I will move my GFC to the top of the page for today)

If you don't want to play along I'm okay with that.

Okay was this long enough for you? Actually long posts are my pet peeve so I am officially mad at myself :)



P.S. If there are spelling errors it's Skye's fault!

I'm soooo jealous of the Mini Cooper - I WANT ONE!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

WOW that tree is huge and gorgeous!
I love those mini coopers, so cute!

Chickens in the Basement said...

I thought I was the only one who wants to drive a mini cooper when I grow up! To make it even better...let it be a stick shift!

Thanks for the tag!

blueviolet said...

Congratulations! You are right that Amy is a very special, sweet person!


I've never tried Keno before. Now you have me curious!

Nichol said...

Congratulations! And thank you. I will get these posted early next week!

Tonja said...

Great post! Not too long at all~ Have a wonderful weekend!

Shell said...

I keep hearing about bunko, but I have never played.

nancygrayce said...

I have friends, well children of friends, who have a mini cooper and named their first son cooper! They are hooked!

loved your post as always......I never asked my family if I could post their pictures....I figured I'd ask forgiveness and not permission!

Kristie said...

I like giraffes too! Ever since I've had kids I've loved all the giraffe baby stuff! :-)

Thank you for participating in the photo tag! I LOVE your Christmas tree! I have problems with pictures uploading sideways too...doesn't matter how many times I try to fix them they upload the same :-/

myletterstoemily said...

whew! you must be exhausted after
putting together that lovely and
extensive post, my bohemian friend!

Tim said...

The P.S. was very funny!

Thanks so much for the award, you are too kind!

I have loved following your blog (when I get the time anyway) LOL. Thanks so much for all that you do here, you have a GREAT thing going.

Love and Prayers,

Tim

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

Bunko is so much fun. I haven't played in years though. You must be a great bowler as well. The only bowling I do is with my Wii Sports! (and even then, I'm not very good.)

Congrats on the awards.

secret agent woman said...

You have to orient the photo in your photo editing program before you upload it to Blogger. Once in blogger, you can't turn it.

Bohemian, bunko & keno - now there's a funny combo!

Six Feet Under Blog said...

I love giraffes too!

VKT said...

I am a bunco player too. I love it because it is so mindless and for the fellowship with my friends. Have a great week-end!

Together We Save said...

Congrats on the awards!! I have never played Bunco but I have always wanted to.

secret agent woman said...

That may be just true for my photo program anyway - I use Picasa because it's free and I'm cheap. Not only do the pictures have to be upright in it, but if you haven't hit the save icon it still loads them in their original orientation.

So, an alternate theory is that Blogger, fickle creature that it is, is messing with you. :-)

Trish said...

My granddaughter loves giraffes too!
Congrats on all of your Awards Debby...you deserve them!

Emily said...

Glad to get to know you better! ;0)

Laura said...

As always- a fun read! I have been so busy lately- no time to blog or read really! I think it's cool that you get so many followers. and so many to comment... I have people checking my blogs but not necessarily following and not commenting... so wierd. Especially the Pause blog... strange- oh well- Good luck on getting that grandbaby!
I overheard my mom once saying that grandchildren were like drugs because you just can't get enough of them... (don't know if she feels the same now that she is watching Sean though... tee hee hee)
:-)
Hugs-

Kelly @ Sufficient Grace Ministries said...

Thanks for thinking of me, girlie! Love to you this Mother's Day! Your heart for grieving moms is such a blessing to me, and to many...

Stella said...

Just stopping by to wish you a great Mother's Day. You need to post a photo of you Cooper don't know that I have ever seen one.

Ginny Marie said...

My favorite soap was Another World, and I was so sad when it got canceled! I watched All My Children with my roommates when I was in college.

Thank you for coming by to link up your post! Happy Mother's Day!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

Congrats! I love the picture! Thanks for stopping by.

ModernMom said...

LOL It was not too long:)
Love people that DO NOT talk or text while driving. It is the law here in Ontario Canada. I think it should be the law everywhere!

Amy said...

Congratulations Debby. I went over and read the post - well deserved, and so is the award. After reading your list, I know that you are somebody who sticks with what you started. A great trait! Have a wonderful M.D. weekend. laurie

Alexis AKA MOM said...

You crack me up I love your long post it's Wonderful. I say when it has pictures to break it up it's the best!!!

I love the tree I can't believe it has 40 less ornaments. It's so beautiful!

LT said...

Congratulations on the awards! They always make me smile!
I love the picture of your tree, I always have a ton of ornaments too, but I just can't not put them all on!!

Unknown Mami said...

For a second I thought you put your tree up sideways.
