Grateful for all my Awards

I was nominated for quite a few Awards in the past few months. Please know how grateful I am and appreciate each and everyone of you that visit my blog.

Due to time constrictions, I haven’t been able to follow through in the correct manner with all these awards, but have appreciated being a recipient. I have a grateful heart.

Some of you know that I was in a car accident a few years ago and to this day I still live in daily pain. It makes it difficult for me to sit at the computer for long lengths of time as my neck and upper back, lower back as well give me much grief. It is with a heavy heart that I have come to the decision that I will no longer be accepting awards on my blog. I do apologize.

I wanted to do up this post to just give a big shout out of, “Thank-you very much.” I have posted the awards and a link to the bloggers that have nominated me.

Blog of the Year 2012~5 Stars

boty-5star-thumb1

I want to say ‘thank-you’ to Ivon at  http://ivonprefontaine.com for nominating my blog  for Blog of the Year Award. Thank-you so much. I am honored! I now have ‘five stars’ and am thrilled.

I have met so many wonderful bloggers in the past year. Happy New Year and I wish all good things to come your way.

And here are the rules:

1 Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award.

2 Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there’s no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ them with their award.

3 Please include a link back to this page ‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award – http://thethoughtpalette.co.uk/our-awards/blog-of-the-year-2012-award/and include these ‘rules’ in your post (please don’t alter the rules or the badges!)

4 Let the blog(s) you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the ‘rules’ with them

5 You can now also join the award’s Facebook group – click ‘like’ on this page‘Blog of the Year 2012’ Award Facebook group and then you can share your blog with an even wider audience if you choose to

6 As a winner of the award – please add a link back to the blog that presented you with the award – and then proudly display the award on your blog and sidebar … and start collecting stars…

Yes – that’s right – there are stars to collect!

Unlike other awards which you can only add to your blog once – this award is different!

When you begin you will receive the ‘1 star’ award – and every time you are given the award by another blog – you can add another star!

There are a total of 6 stars to collect.

Which means that you can check out your favorite blogs – and even if they have already been given the award by someone else – you can still bestow it on them again and help them to reach the maximum 6 stars!

6-stars-image

I have not put the nominees in any type of order and please understand there are so many awesome blogs that deserve this award. I worry I have forgotten someone.

I want to thank all my followers, readers and anyone that just takes a peek at my blog. I do apologize if I ever forget to thank anyone as it is not intentional. I appreciate you all. Thank you so much.

Here are the nominees  I have chosen for the ‘Blog of the Year 2012:

If you do not accept Awards I do understand, just know you are appreciated and thinking about you too.

The Addictive Blog Award

 

Addictive Blog Award was given to me by Kate at:

www.believeanyway.wordpress.com     Kate is a wonderful, friendly, heart-warming Lady. Thank you very much. I’m honored and appreciative. Please drop in and say Hello to Kate.

I had never even heard of the award either Kate.  I’m honored and thank-you so much.

The rules for this Award are as follows:

1. Thank the person who nominated you and link them back.
Thank you my friend!

2. Share a little bit about why you started blogging.

I started blogging with the thought I would remain private and store my different ideas and health tips. My Hubby encouraged me to share my ‘fitness inspiration’- as being a ‘Baby Boomer” and so dedicated why not try and encourage others. My blog is growing and I hope to do more with it as I learn more. It has become my hobby. I hope to inspire others to stay as healthy as possible and to continue to stay active throughout your life, no matter how old you are.

3. Copy and Paste the award onto your own blog.

4. Nominate up to 10 other bloggers you think are addictive enough to deserve the award.

It is difficult to choose with all the terrific blogs in our world as I like to think we are all unique in our own way. 

Please know that I totally understand if you are not interested in Awards. I only want you to know your blog is awesome.

The nominees for this Award are not in any alphabetical order.

Creative Chaos Award

Thank you to Phillipa at    www.worldonaplatter.wordpress.com for giving me the Creative Chaos Award. I appreciate you thinking of my blog. Thank you so much for your kindness. 

The rules with this award are as follows:

1. Mention 3 weird things about me. 

 ~never leave my home until my bed is made up.

~I own a coloring book and crayons, okay, it is for the Grandkids. I still like to color in it even if they are not here.

~I also own my “own” Bubbles. Love them bubbles.

2.  Are you a glass half empty or glass half full person?

I am a ‘glass half full’ girl. When I look hard enough there is always a ‘positive’ in a negative.

3. You find yourself in a desolate place when your car breaks down. You have no cell phone service, no Wal-Mart, and only a candy bar for food. It is 150 miles to the closest town. What color are your underpants and why?

      I would never find myself in a situation like this. Oh Maybe, with my Hubby, not alone!

The last question I find a “personal” choice.

And nominate 5 bloggers who recently followed your blog:

Please stop by and take a look at these blogs. There are so many wonderful people I have met. I feel like I am a “world traveller”.
