SO like a BAJILLION damn years ago, this lucky girl received not one, but TWO Amazing Blogging Awards! HER FIRST ones, too!! (Ending third person mumjum...)
Now BELIEVE YOU ME (PRIME example of the superiority of the English language--- Err the irony of Ethnocentrism?) I know it's SO late to thank these girls for their acknowledgements, but I was OUT LIKE TROUT for quite some time and I figure Better Late than Never...
THANK YOU TO THE PRECIOUS JENN FROM EATINGBENDER ! Jenn is totally THE TOP, and though I'm not the only one who adores her, I DEFINITELY DO THE MOST OUT OF EVERYONE ACROSS THE BLOGSPHERE (What... You wanna fight?). MAN, Julz is Feisty today! Hehe You Like? So THANK YOU my sweetcheeks! You and your amazing blog have brightened up my cloudy days time and time again, and I think you are SUBLIME! (Love you Mama!) OH and if you havn't yet checked out EatingBender, DO IT OR DIE... Right Jenn? (I gotchu girl!)
I would ALSO like to thank Lexi who used to run the blog Healthy Eating Blog . Unfortunately, Lex did not have the support that she deserved from her readers... Many left disheartening comments on her blog. (Those of which made me sick, disappointed, and SO creeped out. Honestly, in her situation? She was asking for kind words, warmth and love, and in turn received harsh banishment and discouragement. )That is NOT to say, however, that she did not have the support of the Bogging Community! Those of us who blog were ROOTING FOR THAT CUTE KABOOSE OF YOURS ALL THE WAY, LEXI-BABY (And we still are!) Your blog was REAL and exemplified your strength and grace, both of which were particularly noteworthy at SUCH a young age! We miss you, Lex! Thank you for this award and I hope you drop by to say hi, soon! XO
Wanna see the BEAUTIFUL AWARD?? Oh. You don't? Well, good thing it ain't YO blog, cuz you don't havva choice! (Watchout... I'm hot like that.)
Plus, I have to follow the rules! But since I received TWO awards (Alriiiight Alriiight we GET IT ALREADY!), i get to DOUBLE-EM UP! (You'll see what I mean in a sec!)
(1) Put the logo on your blog.
(2) Add a link to the person who awarded you.
(3) Nominate at least seven other blogs.
(4) Add links to those blogs on your blog.
(5) Leave a message for your nominee on their blogs.
Isn't it GORG??!! *Sigh... I just LOVE IT!!!
And here's the Doubling up part, since I already linked y'all to My Amazing HOMEGIRL JENN . (Oh... hehe. Whoops!) BUT I'm going to give the award to not 7, not 10 (Why 10? Bc I needed a third component here, obvi.), but 14!! Hence the DOUBLING UP! Owww OWW!!
I tried to choose some Bloggers that have NOT already received the award! Though, PLEASE know... I wish I could give it to ALL Y'ALL!! (Also, I have to leave some bloggers left to receive the awards of MY recipients!)
PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM LISTING YOU GIRLS IN REVERSE ALPHABETICAL ORDER. Why? Because your S+D has a last name that begins with "W," and because it's my blog, I am OWNING THIS OPPORTUNITY to give the End-of-the-Alphabetters a SHOUTOUT and a reason to smile! (Though please know, I want every single one of you smiling ALL DAY! I know I will be! ) OH YEAH... And please hold all applause until the end! Thank You!

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL MY FANTASTIC RECIPIENTS AND THANKS AGAIN TO JENN AND LEXI FOR THINKING OF ME... Eventhough Jenn's list was "selected at random"... hehe.
OH and BY the way... I want to start a NEW AWARD/BADGE!! This award is a reflection of my FAVORITE YOGA SANSKRIT:
"Lokah Samastha Sukhino Bhavantu: May All beings, everywhere, be blessed with Happiness."
THE GUARDIAN BUDDHA
I want to give this Buddha to three bloggers to start--- Now these are some STRONG ASS CUTIES! These girls have kicked some serious ass and have wrestled with some brutal beasts, facing tremendous obstacles -- Many of the same obstacles that I, personally, though I've never mentioned it before, have been defeated by, and many of which I am still wrestling with today (Please don't treat me any differently -- Eep -- Did I just totally make a mistake putting that out there? This makes me WHOA nervous ). WE ALL GO THROUGH THINGS IN OUR LIVES AND EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU DESERVES THIS GUARDIAN BUDDHA BOY with you each and everyday. It was SO hard for me to choose, (I AM NOT BELITTLING ANYONES OBSTACLES... I KNOW YOU ALL HAVE BEEN THROUGH SOME RULLNESS-- RULL-NESS-- BUT I WANT THIS TO BE PASSED ON AND ON AND ON), so I merely went with those bloggers who have shared that struggle with me. I hope that each of you ALLOW THIS BUDDHA TO RELAX/HEAL YOUR WORRIES, freeing you to live a little easier, each day. I know that sometimes, the tiniest daily happenings feel as though they are the HEAVIEST of burdens and that on those days in particular, I need my inner Buddha to lift me up just a little higher. To clear my chest of the weighted emotions that feel so heavy, and to clear my mind of those terrorizing voices. I love you girls, times infin. and I cannot wait for your Buddha to guide you :) Namaste.

(2) Melissa (Trying to Heal)
(3) Amy (Coffee Talk)
So give this award to 3 Bloggers and explain your "Pay it Forward"ness, if you can. Link the bloggers, leave them a comment and sit back, relax, and allow your LONG-and-LASTING-PEACE-with-yourself to finally lead your amazing and wonderful life. <3
And last but not least, my best friend from childhood is Battling Leukemia (we just found out about two-three weeks ago) and is at Johns Hopkins going through Chemo... PLEASE HOLD HER IN THE LIGHT... If anything happens to this girl -- Man, I have not a clue what I'll do... She really needs all of the light you can give her.
Her name is Jill. She's just the dearest of the dear. Thanks guys...
Here we are a little while back (haha read 4 years!)
AND TO END ON A HAPPY NOTE: GO PHILS N GO BIRDS! I'll be at the Eagles game tomorrow!!!!
