Awards! Uh Oh This Better Not Go To My Head!

I think that I must be the luckiest blogger alive as I have received two awards from two bloggers whose blogs send me to the moon because I enjoy them so much! I cannot say how much this means to me because really there are days when I think maybe nobody is reading this or if they are do they all think I am not just Healthnutwannabemom but instead just a plain nut. It always feels good to have someone like you and what you do so I would like to say thank you to Ria of It's My Party (and I'll cry if I want to) for honoring me with the Brilliante award and Caroline of The Zen In You with The Smile Award. If you have not had a chance to stop by either of these blogs you will want to do that as soon as you get the chance. These are two ladies who have fun and inspirational blogs. I always visit Ria for a smile and Caroline for some peace and inspiration (who doesn't need a little fun or inspiration?). Thank you again you two for honoring me and making me smile very, very big!

Now I have the task of choosing a few blogs that I admire to pass these wonderful awards onto. After much thought, pacing, more thought and brainstorming I have decided on the below blogs to award! I know I am forgetting someone so please forgive me as I am not always with it (oh really? I bet you could not tell:)

And the award goes to...... (drum roll please)

To my Smile Award recipients if you want to pass it on just pick 5 blogs you enjoy and post the award logo as well. Again, no big deal if it is not your thing.

Please check out these great blogs if you get a chance! I know you will be glad that you did! I know that I will by lying in bed tonight and a few more blogs will keep popping up that I should have passed these awards on to as well so I would like to say please accept this award as well!!!

    You are a very kind person. Thank you so much for this award! I am truly honored to have received it from you. This is the first time for me of receiving a award for blogging. I can't stop smiling. This makes up for all my lack of comments on my blog. Sometimes, I just feel like not many people like my blog or just don't want to talk to me on my comments. Thanks also for the link love and have a wonderful day! :-)

  17. Thank you for the award as well as your kind words about my blog. I try to work hard on it and make it as informative as possible.

    I started my blog because of what happened to my dad, who died of cancer after being on oxygen for eight years. Now that we have a son, Brady, I want to make sure I'm around as he grows up.

    Since I'm a teacher by nature, blogging seemed like a good outlet for me to share what I've learned by reading and listening to audios.

    Thanks again for the Award, Heidi!
