I've been lucky enough to get a few bloggerific awards lately.  I contend that I haven't been slacking in posting about them...just waiting until the right time.  You believe me, right?!

This one comes from Nola and her mom.  Nola looks very much like a young version of Meadow! Her fur-siblings minions are pretty darn cute too. Thanks, Nola and the momma!

The rules are pretty straight forward: Thank the blogger(s) who gave you the award and link back to them. Done. Share 7 things about yourself.
  1. I have to renew my license this year...and visions of the DMV are already making me not like my birthday.
  2. It may not seem like it - but I'm REALLY shy.
  3. My cell phone ringtone is currently the minions from Despicable Me singing "Copa Cabana".
  4. I'm happiest at home, on the couch, knitting with my pups cuddling me & watching a movie.
  5. I'll be one of the first to offer you my help, but tell me what to do and all bets are off!  Oh...and I don't ask for help either. Someone needs to offer - and even then, I'll probably tell you that "I'm fine".
  6. I'm probably a little more addicted to caffeine than I should be.  Pass the Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts and MaryLou's News!
  7. I can't imagine life without my dogs!  They are AWESOME!

Nominate 15 or fewer bloggers:
Mrs. Jones
Nora B. Webster

The second award is from the lovely Kristine!  She shares a love of dachshunds and is overall a really cool lady!  Thanks, love!

Here are the rules of this award:
*Include the awards logo in a post or on your blog
*Share the love and link the person who awarded you
*Tell us 7 facts about yourself
*Nominate 7 other fabulous bloggers
*Link your nominees to your post and leave them a comment on their blog, letting them know they've won! (OK...I'm cheating on this one. I'll get to as many blogs as I can, but you may get a tweet from me instead!)

  1. The summer is my least favorite season.  As a girl with asthma - humidity SUCKS!
  2. I used to LOVE wind chimes.  Now I'm surrounded by neighbors that have them...and the love has worn off.
  3. I could probably eat the BBQ steak pizza from the pizzeria by my house every night for a week.
  4. I have a really hard time saying "no" to people.
  5. I love airplanes and roller coasters...but am PETRIFIED of heights.
  6. I keep a list of all the things I'd do & people I'd help if I won the lottery.
  7. I have this weird obsession with flavored seltzer water.  It was the only way I could give up soda (yes, I still cheat out at restaurants).

Nominate 7 bloggers:
Mrs. Smith
Preppy Girl Meets World
Beach Bum & Baby

The last award is from Jaimie!  She's one of the lovelies that links up her recipes for Tuesday at the Table.  Thank you, Jaimie!!!!

Because I've already shared a whole bunch of facts - I'm going to rebel and not share 7 more facts.  I'm also going to tag ALL my Tuesdays at the Table folks for this award.  :-)

 If your interested...I'll be blogging here from time to time too. I linked you to my first post. You all know I'd do anything for a dog, especially a dachshund!


  1. I had to renew my license this year too. I did it about a month before my birthday just so it wouldn't be ruined by doing that. I went 1st thing in the morning and I was in & out in 15 minutes! That included taking a written test.

  2. I have to renew my license this year too, but thank the Lord they let you do it online if you don't want a new picture taken. I'm not good at taking a number and waiting :)

  3. Congrats and thank you! Ugh, I have to renew my license as well. Oh joy.
    Nola's Mom

  4. Congratulations on your Awards!
    Thanks for passing it on me!
    My mom loves to stay at home as much as she can too!
    Kisses and hugs

  5. AH! Thanks lovie! :)So glad we share a love for our doxies. :)


I LOVE comments! Tell me what you're thinking. :-)
