Over the Top Award (Ah, shucks, for me?)

Hey, yeah, I know that I already posted once today. But I have something to share!

Leslie over at Something Brilliant is Brewing and Jogging Auburn over at The Quest for a Mile were both kind enough to give me the "over the top" award for my blog.

When you accept this award, you must: A) post one word answers to 35 questions and, B) Pass the award on to 6 other blogs. Since I received the award twice, I will pass it on to 12 blogs. This will be tough, as I read a lot of blogs and love THEM. I am trying to focus on people who don't already have the award and also people whom I note leave a lot of comments for fellow bloggers, as it it is time-consuming to leave a lot of support for others while maintaining your own blog and doing everything else that you need to do in life.

Another issue is, some of the blogs I read are by guys and they are good about leaving motivation for me and for many others, so I wanted to give them the award. I wondered if because the artwork on the award is a female if that meant it's a female award or if a guy wouldn't want to post it on his blog.

I asked DH's opinion and he said that it is based on weight loss and support, not on gender, race or anything like that, and that I should give it to Josh and other bloggers whom I admire, irregardless of gender. I will take his advice, even though it's coming from a guy who just bought a purple Ipod. LOL

  1. Thanks a TON, you are awesome too. I wanted to award you the over the top thing.. but you obviously have already gotten it a few times now, hee.

    So DH specifically mentioned me? Wow, blushing is not a common trait from me.

  2. Thank you for the award. You really made my day!

  3. Thanks for the award....if you didn't already have it, I'd pass it right back!

    Loved the pic of you and the skirt - you've lost a whole person!

  4. Thanks for the award sweetie. I promise I will get to it in the next couple of days... sort of still in stress mode, unfortunately.

    This one: Where do you want to be in 6 years? marathoner

    YOU CAN DO IT. I know you can. I've done four and can tell you it takes training and discipline but you can do it! Reach for the stars baby!!

  5. Ooh, ooh! An award! Thank you! Do I get to make a speech? I guess I better do that over on my blog :)

  6. Thank you for my award! I've just picked it up and posted about it on my blog. :o) When I get more time, I'll catch up on all the posts I missed while I was away.

    Bye for now

    Patsy :o)


We are all so busy.... so I truly appreciate your taking the time to comment.
