Tags and Awards

I got these back in May and I've been meaning to pass them along, but... well, there is no good reason why I haven't done it yet. So, I suppose today is as good a day as any - and better late than never!

The first is an award from Erica @ But Mommy.... Thank you very much Erica!!

The rules are:
1) Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.

2) Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
But there is no way I could narrow it down... I say, if you are reading this and want to pass it on to somebody else, then you deserve the award! Take it and pass it on! And be sure to come tell me did it, because I would love to see other lovely blogs out there. I'm totally serious too! If you pass it on, take it and post it and tell the world I gave you the award!

Next up, I was tagged by AMommyof2girlz @ A Pocket Full of Buttons.
