Enough for everyone

Over the past several weeks, I have had all kinds of bloggy love sent my way!

And since I get to share, I couldn't think of a better way than to gather up all the love and toss it into the air with one big gesture of admiration!

If you end up keeping count, I get to share love with 27 people!

Thank goodness! I hate the pressure of choosing!

Sadly, I am sure I will still accidentally leave someone out that I adore!

Don't hate me! I love you too!

So, here goes all my admiration to 27 fellow bloggers I love!

And of course, these are in no particular order nor is anyone dedicated to a particular award other than that I went down my list and plugged you in line!

I love you all equally!

Just like my children! ;)

Tanya made me blush big time when she attached my name to THREE awards last week! Her words were so very kind and I ditto them back to her 10x10! It is so nice to develop friendship outside of the regular commenting we do.

She gave me this and I get to pass it along to 10 more people!

Chronicles of a Night Owl Jennifer is one I will talk some more about down below, but I wanted her included in the fun! Don't forget to check out her craft blog and little shop!
Gathering Grace Jennifer has been such an inspiration to me over this last year. Her thoughtful posts and encouraging words mean so much to me.
Gather at the River Jennifer is my dear friend who I miss so so much! Along with all my other girls back "home"!
Mom 2 Hudson and Cooper Jennifer loves to share pictures as much as I do! She tells great stories and shares good ideas!
The Wilson Six Jennifer is so talented and makes so many cute things. Check her out!

(Notice a pattern! I had to lump them all together because it was just too funny not to! I can always count on my "Jennifers"!!)

Life with 4 Boys Jenna is my friend and lives life with 4 boys! Five if you count her husband! Go have a girls' night out, friend!
Happy Chaps Cindy is a fellow Texas buddy and will be adding to our population in a few months! Yea!
Simple Life at Home Lori, well I can't say enough about her! She is kind and encouraging. She always shares wonderful thoughts about her life and her family. She is living in a far away land right now, so go give her some love!
The Big Yellow House Martie is my "Mom" hero! Seriously, she is a Super Mom! You can see and hear the joy she has for her family in every post!
Lots of Scotts J. is thoughtful, inspiring, and funny! Well, at least her 4 year old triplets are funny and that makes her funny! My son is the same age as hers, so it is always enlightening to share this time with her!

A Year of Crockpotting This woman is amazing! She is cooking out of her crock pots for 1 full year! Every meal! Plus they are healthy and gluten-free! Go find a good recipe to enjoy!
Ask Kari & Kijsa These sisters spread beauty to our homes and to our lives. They always have an idea to share!
The Lazy Organizer She always has an idea and a funny story to share!
Broomhuggers or Mudlark She spreads green-conscious ideas and good mom stories across her two blogs! I have saved lots of great ideas from her site!
Mommy Zabs Elizabeth is one of my favorite people that I have never met! She speaks straight from her heart, but with clarity from her head! When I visit Nashville, she is in my top 5 people to visit!

***These are the rules which must be posted:

This award was created by Memoirs of a Mommy. It’s a very special award that she created in Honor Of The Donor That Saved (her son) Noah’s Life. Noah received a heart transplant, and she hopes that by passing this award around the blogosphere everyone can help raise awareness of the need for Organ Donation.

The rules of this award are: SHARE THE LOVE!!! Share this award with all those blogs out there that you love. All the people who make you smile. All those that make you laugh. All those that make your day. All those that leave uplifting comments on your blog.

**All I ask, is that you include a link to this post with the award and ask your recipients to do the same**

The Diaper Diaries Funny stories, good ideas, inspiring words! You can't go wrong!
The Wooden Porch Lani makes me laugh! She always has a good story to share. I have enjoyed getting to know her better.
Will Blog for Shoes Bee's my girl! We seriously need to live closer together! Or maybe not-I can only imagine the trouble we might get into!
Busy Busy Mommy Kelli is always sharing her life with us. I so appreciate her honesty when sharing the ups and downs of raising a young man with some unique needs.
Family Faces Cyndy is one of my dear friend's mom! I actually get to see pics of the kids if I visit her ! ;) Plus she might even show you a great recipe!

Jennifer is another friend who loved on me several weeks ago! We have developed such a nice friendship outside of the standard commenting. I am blessed to know her!

The rules:

I have to pick 7 of my favorite blogs and…

1. The winner can put the logo on their blog

2. Link the person you received your award from

3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs.

4. Put links of those blogs on yours.

5. Leave a message on the blogs of the ones you’ve nominated.

Mission: Kim Possible Kimmy is a precious gal who I consider a friend. It doesn't matter that she lives in Canada and we have never met! And I doubt if the significance of why I stuck her down with this award is lost on her! Did you figure it out Kimmy?!!
Mel's World Melissa is just one of God's little, yet mighty, princess! She has blessed me so much with her many "talks" insired by God's Word!
Mommy Cracked This is one of my newer treats! She is always good for a funny tale or interesting thought!
Pink Peppermints Melissa is a creative soul! It is a hard fact to miss when you visit her! She hasn't posted in awhile, but she is so worth knowing!
Someone Being Me A fellow Texan who, despite never meeting, I just know would be a perfect companion for a pedicure and a margarita!!
As a parent, the days are long but the years are short Tanya could not be left out of the fun! I spoke of her at the beginning! I wouldn't blame her if she is too worn out to do this one too!
Sooner or Later Rachel is one of my dearest friends for over 20 years! I wouldn't even have adequate words to share what our friendship has meant to me over the years. She doesn't post much, but she is a must for my list!

I can't leave without mentioning a few hidden friends! Their blogs are private, so I can't link to them or reveal their true identity. Just know friends (and you know who you are!) that you deserve to be here also!

Aren't you great! Really and truly, I am so thankful that you posted a comment on my blog that day last year. You can never know how much your wisdom and kind words have meant to me. I really feel that you are my friend, and I am so thankful that you are. I wish that you lived closer! Thanks for the award.

Ah, thank you, thank you...
I haven't received an award in ever-so-long. I'm glad to know that my efforts are actually READ. :)

I hope you're feeling better these days. I'm EXHAUSTED and off to bed. Don't let me forget to check in tomorrow - busy day ahead.

Girl, you know you're my girl, too!

And, yes, we might get into some trouble, but it would sure be worth it!
