Blog Awards and a Sundae Tease

Over the course of the past couple of weeks, I’ve been the recipient of several new blog awards.

“Mama”, at Mama’s Empty Nest, nominated me for the Sunshine Award. That one actually hit home with me. Back in the prehistoric old CB radio days, “Sunshine” was my handle. Here’s the pretty Sunshine Award logo.

Accepting The Sunshine Award requires that I answer these questions:

Favorite color:  Blue. Always has been.

Favorite animal:  Cats. There haven’t been many periods in my life that I wasn’t owned by a kitty.

Favorite number:  Two.

Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Diet Coke

Prefer Facebook or Twitter? Facebook

My passion:   My family. (Motor Man says blogging runs a close second.)

Prefer getting or giving presents:  Giving. I love finding just the right something for someone.

Favorite pattern: Hmm. Never really thought about it. I love a country stripe. In blues.

Favorite day of the week:  Friday.  Motor Man, Marshall and I have dinner together every Friday evening.

Favorite flower:  Blue hydrangeas.

AND, my good blogging buddy, Georgette, presented me with four (count ’em: 4) awards: The Liebster and Versatile Blog Awards (which I had been given previously), The Genuine Blogger Award and The Hug Award.

The Genuine Blogger award doesn’t come with any stipulations, but I’m really tickled to receive it. Genuine is good.

As for the Hug (Hope Unites Globally) award, you can read all about the origins of that here. And the only requirement for accepting the HUG award is to pass it on to at least one other person.

I am passing along these awards to the following bloggers.

Linda at The Road Awaits.  I actually knew Linda years ago when my sister was good friends with her parents. Her blog is fairly new, but I look forward to reading it every day.

Sam at One Spoiled Cat.  Okay, so Sam’s “mom”, Pam, really writes for him. It’s a combined effort, because I’m pretty sure Sam dictates what he wants Pam to write. Pam’s an author, so all this writing comes naturally to her.

Cheryl at The Farmer’s Daughter. Cheryl shares beautiful photos and posts about a variety of topics.

MJ at Emjay And Them. I just love MJ’s outlook on life.  And I can count on her to leave nice comments on my blog.

Renee at Writingfeemail. Renee is also an author. She “cuts right to the chase” in her posts, and many times, I find myself learning something new after visiting her blog.

So there you have it. My new blog award collection. And for those of you who aren’t into blog awards, here’s a tease. Just what is Sundae girl about to pounce on in this picture? The answer when Sundae takes over this blog for another edition of “Sundae Says” on Monday. Tune in!

  1. Happy congratulations to you, Dianna — pretty soon you’ll need a wider blog to contain all of your awards! We sure do appreciate your unique stories and perspective not to mention your keen photographic eye and the ongoing adventures of Sundae. 🙂

  2. Dianna, I am truly honored to be the recipient of these awards! You know you were my inspiration in the first place…and you are truly deserving of all the awards and kudos you receive! As for Sundae…she looks a lot like my kitty used to look just before she pounced on my foot moving under the covers! She is such a pretty kitty!

  3. Oh thank you from the bottom of “our” (Sam AND me too) hearts for the blogging awards. Every award we receive just fills our hearts up more. You are – as Linda says – so very deserving of the blog awards you receive as your blog has EVERYTHING: memories, lovely photos, and great stories too. Sundae looks like she’s about to pounce on MM as he lounges in bed while you’re blogging…..she’s got mischief on her pretty little face that’s for sure!!

    Big Hugs from Sammy AND Pam 😉

  4. Your dedication to this “other member of the family” shows tender loving care. I think the Good Greatsby is on to something when he wrote about building a trophy room. haha If there’s a remodel in your future, MM will be relieved it’s on your website and not changing the house. 🙂 Congratulations!

  5. Congratulations to you on the awards – you’re so deserving!

    Thank you for sharing the “love” by including other bloggers and me 🙂 I genuinely appreciate you!

    And Sundae looks like she has a favorite pillow in sight!


  6. Congratulations on your much deserved awards. Sundae is ready to pounce on MM which he does regularly, I am sure.

  7. congrats to you, dearie! sunshine and genuine and hug. NICE!!!

  8. As Sam would say…congratulations on all of your new “bling”. All are well deserved.

  9. Congratulations!! Sundae must be ready to pounce on something that’s being wiggled by MM ~ toes, perhaps?

  10. Yeah! Congratulations to you…that “Sunshine” one is just beyond perfect and, well, so is the “Genuine” one and..Ok, they’re all perfect for you!
    Have a great day.

  11. Congratulations on all! Especially the Sunshine ! I keep expecting that side of the blog to run out of room – 😉 And I think you told me what Sundae was about to pounce on, but I can’t remember, so it’ll be a new one !

  12. Congratulations on all your awards. You certainly deserve them. Your blog is such a wonderful place full of good cheer and inspiration. ~applause~

    Sundae is so pretty all ready to leap on… someone’s toe perhaps? lol I can hardly wait to hear what she’s after. 😆

  13. Congratulations Dianna on your awards and to those you passed them on to! I think Sundae is about to pounce on a wiggling toes under that blue whatever it is 😉

  14. CONCATULATIONS on your well deserved award and we are so happy that you passed it on to Sammy! We love Sammy!

  15. Congratulations on all the awards, Dianna! Your blog is wonderful, the photos are always beautiful and you are truly deserving of these sweet awards! Thank you so much for choosing me to be one of the recipients of these, too! That just brightened my day already filled with sunshine. And speaking of “Sunshine”, I was called that name by a few of my co-workers at a previous job several years ago! And, some of your answers are the same as I would pick, so we have a few things in common besides a love of blogging! Again, thanks for the awards and have a wonderful day!

  16. So much encouragement!! You brighten my life every day, I’m so glad you’ve had the love heaped upon you! Can’t wait to see what gets pounced on (as long as it’s not a mouse!!)

  17. Firstly, congrats to you. That’s a pretty nice trio for a deserving blogger. And thank you for the kind words about my blog. I truly appreciate it and the awards. Lastly, I admire your ability to catch your cat in action. Mine and the puppy both manage to jump out of the frame the instant I start to snap the picture.

  18. Hey Sunshine! That so totally suits you and so do all of these lovely awards! Love the teaser about Sundae. Can’t wait to see what the object of her pre-pouncing stance is. 😉

    Congrats you deserve everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. These all describe you and your blog, Dianna. Yes, I think you’re going to have to remodel pretty soon! lol I know what you mean about family first, but blogging is a close second!

  21. Dianna–congratulations on your well deserved awards!

  22. Congrats. Great Blog, really!

  23. Good for you, and a very deserving blog to receive these awards! ~ Sheila
