Lemons to Lemonade

Katie, who resides over at Ritch in Love has given me a very sweet award. One I'm not sure I deserve, but one I will accept because Katie is just the sweetest thing ever. Please go over and visit Katie. She is a girl right here in our backyard. Katie is a true blue (red) Utes fan. She could be the biggest Utes fan I have met. She has also got the greatest stories that she shares and she really does make Lemonade out of Lemons.

As always there are rules:
By now we should all know what the basics are! but in case you don't know here ya go!
1. Put the logo on your blog or post
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great attitude or gratitude!!!
3. Be sure to link your nominees with your post.
4. Let them know they received the award by leaving a comment on their most recent post on their blog.
5. Share the love and link this post to the person that gave you the award!
Blogging is such an amazing way to meet new people. It reminds me of the Pen Pals of my elementary school days, only now you get instant feedback. I get to keep in touch with all my friends from the "old neighborhood" which is very high on list of important things. I have "found" people I have lost track of and keep to spy on other people and they don't even care! So, here is my list of some wonderful, caring blogging friends who are grateful for so many things and always try to see the best in everything.

1 - Veggie Mom at Eat Your Veggies! who is an awesome blogger and a great business woman. Plus things are poppin' over at her place all the time!
2 - Adiel at It's Because I Think Too Much, well, because I just love Adiel and if I could add another daughter to my family it would for sure be her!
3 - Sherrie at Kaysville Mama who is another neighbor to the north! Sherrie always has an upbeat blog and the greatest adoption stories I have read.
4 - Pam at Colorado McEwens is just over the hill from me. Her blog is uplifting and her life is filled with her serving others. She amazes me!
5 - Angela at My Dogumentary. Go visit Angela and see her cute doggies. She loves dogs as much as I love cats and there are always happy things going on!
6 - Tracy at The Journey. I so enjoy visiting Tracy's blog. She is always positive and has such wonderful things going on. Tracy's blog is great if you need a lift.
7 - Melissa at the scholastic scribe. Melissa's blog is where I go if I want to brighten my day. She teaches High School and deserves a Congressional Medal of Honor as far as I'm concerned!
8 - Liz at Livin' The Dream, who thinks no one reads her blog. Everyone should read her blog. She has the funnest adventures, the cutest kids and one fine looking husband. (Don't tell him I said that!)
9 - Tulsi at The Family Awaits. I just BARELY met Tulsi and haven't even finished reading her blog but she is great. What an amazing lady! And what a cute family.
10 - And because I hate to leave anyone out, I am following Katie and saying that I would like to give this to all of you. So if you know someone who deserve such a nice blogging award...take this and pass it on.

P.S. Janice, if you stop by and read this, I would really like to read your blog but you are private. If it is OK, can I play too?? Please? My email is Just don't give it to the crazy people in the world.
