Lemonade Award

This week's blog posts are devoted to catching up on all I didn't have time to do in December a/k/a "taking care of business". That being said, I received the Lemonade Award, thanks to Kristen at Something about Nothing (sorry it took so long to post) and Donna @ Our Adventures with Tassie! The purpose of this award is to give it to someone who is showing gratitude or a good attitude ("if life hands you lemons, make lemonade") within their life or blog.

The rules:

1) put the logo on your blog
2) nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude and/or gratitude.
3) have your 10 pass it along to 10 more!

These rules are the easiest EVER, but narrowing it down to 10 is the hard part because I follow over 180 blogs, and I wouldn't be following them if they didn't demonstrate great attitude or gratitude qualities!

I have seen several catching up on posting this award to day, so some of you may have already received it or will get it more than once, but that's ok. It's the thought that counts, right? That being said, I've chosen to pass it along to:

1) Bo @ Blinks 'N Winks from Brown Eyes because she's dealt with alot in her life, and still remains positive.

2) Laurie @ Bargain Hunting with Laurie who may have icky RMS trolls that harass her, but I LOVE her enthusiasm for decorating!

3) Chris @ Chris's Corner because she always provides inspiring words of wisdom!

4) Beth @ I AM HEADING TOWARDS MY DESTINY because she lost 54 pounds in 2007 alone! If that's not inspirational, what is?

5) Shelia @ Note Songs is just the happiest little song bird I know!

6) Dee @ Drama Mama who makes the best of the hand she has been dealt.

7) Claire @ Life of a Southern Belle who also lost a lot of weight in 2007, despite her trainer quitting. She's also a "straight shooter", and I like that about her!

8) Kathy @ Emptynester who is a sweetie & a relatively new blogger - so please visit, if you haven't already.

9) Theresa @ Take a Sentimental Journey who has fought cancer, and is hopefully winning the fight.

10) Jennifer @ The Beaufort Lookout who is battling Parkinson's disease, and was in a wreck just before the holidays, but she still keeps going strong!

Way to go ladies, just keep doing what you're doing!

Now, go make some lemonade and spread the Bloggy love! Thanks again, Kristen & Donna!

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

I am honored and proud to receive this award from you. Thank you so much. Also, thank you for the kind notes you left in my blog. I have always had that spacing problem with my blog. Wish I knew what to tell you. I've asked others about it and everyone seems to have the same problem. It is SO frustrating. I work and work at it; think I've got it; then publish, and it's all wrong! laurie

I follow 60 blogs and I thought I might be overdoing it but they are all so good and I am afraid I will miss something if I let one go. You are my blog following hero!

Hey Tar..Thanks so much for thinking of me! I really appreciate it! You are so sweet!
I had trouble with spacing until I started deleting or back-spacing all of the empty space at the end of the post. Then the paragraphs have no room to move.
Thanks again!...Debbie
