Super Cute Blog Award

OK.  I’m going to try to say this in a calm, civilized manner.  I will not jump up and down.  I will refrain from doing the Happy Dance.  I most definitely am not going to act super excited and scream “YESSSSS!!!” over and over. 

Friends, I have received (for the very first time EVER) a BLOG AWARD!!

Yes, that’s right!  Lil’ ol’ polka-dotted, flour-covered, sugar-loving ME got a blog award!

How happy am I?  SO HAPPY!  In fact, forget what I said earlier.  I’m doing the Happy Dance RIGHT NOW!

One of my newest bloggy friends, Melissa from Lovely Little Life, gifted me this faaaabulous award.  Go check out her blog -- she has fantastic style!:
The rules are as follows:  "Pass on the award to 10 other people while notifying and prompting them to do the same."  

Well shoot, I think I can do that!  Without further ado, I would like to recognize these fun bloggers for their cute blogs:

  1. First and foremost may I call Miss Erica to the stand to accept this award for her super-cute site: Dollface Delights!  Though its sister blog I Bleed Pink is also super-cute, I've chosen Dollface Delights for this award due to its abundance of cupcakes.  K, maybe I'm slightly biased... 0:)  Besides, Erica's sense of pinup style is dazzling and I just love her to death.  KI'mdonethankyouverymuch.

  2. Next I choose Me and My Pink Mixer.  I just love the fun recipes that this woman comes up with.  She shares everything from sweet to savory.  In fact, don't say anything to her but I'm adopting the theory that she's secretly trying to sabotage my waistline.  How else do you explain THIS??

  3. My third choice is Jenn's blog Rook No. 17.  Jenn's blog is a wealth of information on everything from crafts to cooking.  She's got this great music player on her blog, too, that acts as a personal DJ  to provide the perfect ambiance for reading.  Sometimes I just let her blog run in the background while I'm working so I can groove to her selections.

  4. Fourth, please allow me to recognize my dear deer, The Red DeerAlicia, my cute bloggy friend, is having all sorts of fun in the Land Down Under.  Check out her completed A...B...Cupcake Challenge and keep an eye out for tips from Clive, the real brains behind The Red Deer.

  5. Fifth (halfway there!), may I introduce to you Tracy from Sugarcrafter.  Don't let the name fool you, her blog is chock full of delicious recipes for any part of the meal, not just dessert!  She even changes her blog header to go along with the season (you should've seen it for Halloween!)

  6. Next (just keep swimming!), have you chanced to meet the apron goddesses Suzi and Julia of the (aptly-named) blog The Apron Goddesses?  Their blog is a blog after my own heart.  Yes, dear friends, I suffer from a little-known affliction known as Apronophilia, or in layman's terms, "the abnormal affection for all things apron" (evidence cited here and here.)  If you too suffer from this affliction (or if you know of someone who does), this may just be the perfect site for you.

  7. My seventh bit of recognition goes to the Blonde Duck and her wonderful world of whimsy, A Duck in Her Pond.  Just take one look at the header of her blog and the unicorns, sparkles, rainbows, and pink.  Do you just hearken back to when you were a wee lass of five playing with your My Little Ponies in the backyard and pretending that they were getting married in a lavish ceremony on the swing set but then this evil villain came out of nowhere and tried to ruin everything and then  at the last minute this hero zoomed through and saved the day?  No?  Sort of?  K maybe it's just me...

  8. OH MY GOSH I JUST MET BLOGBABY AND I LOVE HER SO MUCH!  K so many of you probably met her recently too thanks to her feature post on SITS but I just think she's the bees knees.  I can't get enough of her (even if she does have a bit of a drinking problem...)  P.S. -- how cute are these little baby headbands?  Makes me want a baaaaaabyyyyyyy!!!  (don't tell ECA!)

  9. *Whew* we're at 9, so close!  For 9 I've chosen Amanda and her blog parenting BY dummies.  Her insightful and humorous take on life and parenting makes me laugh with every post, guaranteed.  I'm so glad I have a new bloggy friend to stalk admire :)

  10. And finally, last but definitely not least is one of my newest finds: Jenn at Livin' the Simple LifeShe does the most amazing job of giving new life to old objects.  Check out what she did with this wine rack and would you have ever thought to do this to a headboard?  So creative!  I can't wait to go and pick up some fabulous finds.              
These are my 10 selections for the Super Cute Blog Award.  I have many blogs that I like to check out regularly so it was very hard to narrow it down to 10 but I think I did a pretty good job.  Thanks again, Melissa, for the wonderful award!
