Blog Award - Real Person Award

WOOHOO! I'm so excited. I just got my first blog award. Okay, I didn't JUST get it, but I just found out about it. I actually got it about two weeks ago. With being away in San Francisco, Thanksgiving at our house with my parents, boys out of school, etc., I'm just now catching up reading the 40+ blog posts I've missed over the last two weeks (I only follow about 6 bloggers).

I've been awarded the Marie Antoinette award... - I know... - Really?? Let them eat cake, Antoinette?? Uh, thanks a lot!

Anyway, as explained by the blogger who presented me with the award, lemondingo, this is also known as the "Real Person Award". Evidently the more private, less vilified Marie was very devoted to her children, had a circle of close friends, and loved reading, music, science and philosophy. Now, I don't care for philosophy, but the rest pretty much fits.

I think what I'm supposed to do now is make a long speech thanking all the people who ever believed in me when I no longer believed in myself, blah, blah, blah.... Okay, just kidding, we'll skip the speech. I would like to pass this award on to two other bloggers: my friend Barb,
(http://tinkquilts.blogspot.com/2008_11_01_archive.html), who is definitely a real person if there ever was one, and Sandra at http://suddenlysandra.blogspot.com/2008_11_01_archive.html - who seems like a real person but who gets so much sewing done I'm starting to suspect she might actually be twin seamstresses blogging as one person, lol.

Hooray...I'm glad you enjoyed receiving the award. I was a bit naughty and forgot to email everyone who I gave the award to...so it has been fun as they have discovered it via reading my blog. Glad you enjoyed your mini honey moon....you are back just in time to throw yourself into your Christmas shopping!
