Awards and Memes!

Okay. I have been such a freaking slacker. I have gotten some really frackin' cool awards and I never even acknowledged them. Ugh! I know. I rot.
The first one was from Kristen at Loving Our Simple Life. She made her own award to hand out to people who also love their lives. I think this is the best idea and I am so honored that she gave it to me because I really do LOVE my life. I'm glad it shows.

The next award came from Elaine at The Miss Elaine-ous Life. Sharing the love. Isn't that sweet? Thanks for sharing your love with me, Elaine. I can always use more lovin'.

The last award came from Sandy at Momisodes. I can't believe she considers me a must see blog! I freaking love Sandy! She is so smart, funny, and sweet. Not to mention beautiful. I love reading her blog and it is definitely a must read for me.
I am supposed to pass this award on to 10 blogs that I consider must see blogs, so here it goes:

1-Sandy at Momisodes
2-Brittany at 4 Little Men...and twins on the way!
3-Laskigal at From the Cheap Seats
4-Stephanie at A Little Bit of Suger & A Whole Lotta Spice!!
5-Molly's Mom at Bitchy and Ranty
6-OHMommy at Classy Chaos
7-Holly at Anglophile Football Fan
8-Michelle at House of Lime
9-Kristen at Loving Our Simple Life
10-Elaine at The Miss Elaine-ous Life
11-I'm Being Held Hostage

So there ya go. My list could have gone on and on, but these are all definitely must see blogs! Yes, there are 11 instead of 10, but you all know I am a rule breaker, right? Thank you, Kristen, Elaine, and Sandy! I am very appreciative of these lovely awards.

Okay. I know I said that I wasn't going to do any more memes, but I found FOUR memes that I had done a while back but never posted. So... I thought I would post two of them now and two of them some other time. I'm sorry, I have no idea who tagged me. If anyone wants to step up and take the blame I'll be happy to link you.

This is the "Finish the sentence with the 1st thought that comes to your mind" meme.

And seriously. What IS up with Favre? What is he thinking? So disappointing. Many of you asked what I thought about the whole situation and I basically think he is giving up his chance to go out with style. He has been in the NFL for 16 years with the same team and he wants to give all of that up. He said just a few short months ago that the only way he would return for another year is if he could guarantee a trip to the Superbowl but that it was just not realistic. Now he thinks that it is realistic learning a whole new offense with a different team? Come on! He isn't being very loyal to the most loyal fans in the league. And I don't like that he is blaming it on the Packers organization for making him decide so early. Of course they need to know early. It impacts the whole team in a huge way. I will always be a big Favre fan, but I really feel that he is tarnishing his image.

Come on, Brett. Use your head. You have had an amazing career. Longer than most guys would ever dream of. Go out on top. Go out with the team and the fans that have stuck by you through it all.

well shucks, thanks *blushing*

the memes are fun too, i may steal them for a rainy day myself ;)

Krystyn @ Really, Are You Serious? said...

Wow, you've been BUSY! Congrats on the awards and to all of the winners!

Cyndi said...

Congrats on the awards. You are very deserving. Great job on the meme's, too.

Bren said...

I loved your responses to that first meme. And I admit, I'm now singing that crazy Beastie Boys song.

Congrats on all the bling!

Mary Beth said...

Mike and the Mad Dog (sports radio station in NYC) say the way the Packers should go is to wait until a team approaches them before giving him his release. That way, they can try and get something for Favre like a first round pick or something else - so they're not giving him away to the competition. How awful would it be if he became a Viking or a Bear? You're right - go out with style and class, like the rest of your career. If he's at all interested in broadcasting, you know there are a ton of stations drooling to get him on their team.

I've stolen one of your memes to use in the future:}

Kristen said...

Thank you Thank you Thank you!! Blog awards make my day, and yes dear, you are so deserving of all of yours!

Now I need to officially get off my duff and do my blog award post.

And no you do not rot! :)

Happy Saturday friend! I hope you are enjoying that super cute family of yours.

Molly's Mom said...

Thanks!!! Now I feel like I really have to try and live up to the award :) I might have to do memes soon; I have to work the next 2 weeks and won't have much time to write :(

Tonya said...

I miss the music.

Now I am going to bed with "I think we're alone" playing in my head.

Robyn said...

You would not believe how p.o.ed my husband is at Favre. I agree with you, don't ruin it now just stay retired.

just jamie said...

Congrats on your awards. Your "freaking" awards. I love that word, too.

Target has us all suckered in, doesn't it? Oh, that reminds me. I need to go tomorrow to get ...

Kellan said...

Congratulations, Kathryn, on all the great awards - you truly deserve all of them.

Hope you are having a good weekend - Kellan

Aren't little boys the best.

Can I say I love you all the more for picking Target as your favorite store? And, I'm thinking you are a big fan of chips? Thanks so much for the award, tootsie. You're so in that same vein for me.

Congrats on the awards, those are always fun

Note to Brett, you are losing yourself some street cred, man. Fish or cut bair.

imbeingheldhostage said...

wow-- THIS is your "taking a break"? You covered so many things, I don't know where to begin! "Pets:gone"... want mine?
"What are you wearing?: pervert" -- hilarious. I have a story for this, but it just points out how naive I can be.

And thank for the pretty little bloggy badge-- I am SUPER flattered that you'd think of (and break to rules to include)me.
Happy rest of the weekend :-)

Kelley said...

Fun memes and awards. I think all those random facts can be so enlightening about a person. Or not. :) If I had some extra time I'd do some, too, but I just barely got time to read all my blogs on the list and comment. (My family would rather I was making Sunday dinner at the moment, but oh well.)

Thanks for all your wonderful comments. I appreciate every one of them, even if I can't acknowledge them very often- occupational hazard of being a mom of a new baby and 3 delightful and occasionally psycho boys. I'm sure you know exactly what I'm talking about. :)

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

Congrats on the bling! Woot!

And Favre. Oh Favre. Oh oh Favre. Talk about a rock and a hard place!

Stephanie said...

Congrats on your awards! You deserve them. Yours is definitely one of my staples, that is for sure!

And thank YOU for my award! I love, love, love it!

Happy Monday Girly!

Awards and memes are fun! YOu just reminded me that I still have two awards to give out! LOL

Interesting meme. I really hate passing on awards as I always think anyone who blogs anyway deserves one for opening up their lives to total strangers.

Wow! How fun....nice post!

Amy said...

Congrats on your awards and those were great memes!! I think Farve is going to be watching football this season from the comfort of his couch. I totally agree with you, he should stay out with class. Who knows what will happen though in the wacky NFL.

Momisodes said...

Aww, thank you sweetie! I'm so glad to see you with all these well deserved awards :)

LOVED your meme answers. Chips, coffee, and caring too much sometimes? You and I could totally be BFF's :)

What awesome awards.

I cracked up on the one MeMe, the first WORD that pops into your head and you said Captain for favorite drink. I don't see you as a Captain drinker.

On the comnplete the sentence I like the one where you say I am.... frackin' hilarious! But only in my own mind. Me Too!

RJTrue said...

Hey girl!!!! I'm stealing one of your memes - it's fun learning about people through those - you should always throw one out there every now and then!

And yay for my sis on your Must See Blogs!

One more thing - totally agree with your Favre comments!!

Laski said...

Awe . . . I'm commenting right after my little sis. How cute is that?

THANK YOU a zillion times over. You are so awesome!!! I feel so honored.

And you, you so deserve each and every award. You were one of the very first mom blogs I ever read. You had boys, I had a boy. I was hooked and have been ever since.


Nissa said...

You rule, Kathryn & totally deserve all those cool awards!


Words To Live By

Be grateful for each new day.
A new day that you have never lived before.
Twenty-four new, fresh, unexplored hours to use usefully and profitably.
We can squander, neglect, or use them.
Life will be richer or poorer by the way we use today.
Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
Tomorrow is a new day.
You shall begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be
encumbered with your old nonsense.

-Ralph Waldo Emerson
