Beautiful Blogger Award

beautiful_blogger_thumb
I was privileged enough to be given this by 2 people recently.  The wonderful,  inspiring and generous people were:
Jen from Jemikaan and
Stacey from Say Something Stacey
Here are the rules:
  1. Thank and link to the person that gave you the award
  2. Pass the award along to 7-9-15- however many bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic!
  3. Contact said Blogs and let them know they’ve won
  4. State 7 things about yourself
Thank you very much Stacey and Jen.  I’m honoured to be joining you both as a Beautiful blogger.
7 Things About Me:
I’m assuming these are supposed to be things I haven’t shared in the blog world yet so I will try my best.  Given it is Easter I think I will make Easter my theme.
  1. My extended family are Christian and I am the black sheep of the family as we don’t go to church. 
  2. I have already started eating Easter eggs as Mr E won a basket of them from a raffle he entered at work.
  3. We eat chocolate for breakfast on Easter Sunday.  I try to get everyone to eat hot cross buns as well to reduce the chocolate intake.  I am not always successful.
  4. I often make my own Hot cross buns as gluten free ones available in the shops are quite expensive.  This year I bought a pack of 6 for $9.95.
  5. I ate the last bun this morning.  So now I have to cook some.
  6. When I do cook my own hot cross buns, I can never remember the recipe so used to ring my mother to get the recipe every year.  Now I use Google instead.
  7. Our pet rabbit is sometimes used to help if we have an Easter Egg hunt.
Just some  of the Beautiful Bloggers I read:
Peta at Come Rain or Come Shine.
Being Me at Sunny Side Up
Pink Patent Mary Janes
Kakka from Menopausal Mumma
Lucy from Diminishing Lucy
Lulu at Unperfect Life
Juni / Jennifer at Where is Juni?
Daria from Satisfy my soul
Clarissa over at Limpets and Penguins
Now some of these  are recent discoveries and some aren’t. But I think they are all Beautiful bloggers in their own way.  I’m very sorry if you don't do awards or if you already have this one but sometimes you deserve to get it more than once!
And for those who aren't listed here if I read and comment on your blog then I think you are pretty great too!

I am laughing so much after following you around to comment about giving my blog award!

BUT this time it doesn't matter because it is YOU I need to tell to go get your blog award from my blog, lol!

Anna said...

I have given you an award too.. the same one in fact! It was reading your blog post that reminded me to do mine LOL!

Madmother said...

Ah, crap. Did one double up on my list, lol. T'was Lulu, but didn't realise it until I went to comment on her blog. PMSL - this whole thing has made my day!

DarNonymous said...

Thankyou so much! That is really exciting! I've been quietly jealous for some time of the award rolls some Blogs are displaying. At last one to add to my very own!
THANKYOU!

That's very funny I got 8 comments in just under 4 hours!

Clarissa - how good does early Easter chocolate taste?

Lucy - :)

Being Me - I read on Facebook that other members of the family had started eating chocolate too so they are with me on that one. LOL.

Peta - you so deserve this. In fact I'm thinking about getting some tissues before I go near your blog at the moment.

MM and Anna - great minds think alike! Thank you both. And MM, I love that you were following me around. That is just so great. I love being one of the cool kids!

Dar - you left us to go get married, have a honeymoon and got sick. Now you are back I'm sure you will get all the awards you deserve. You were missed you know!

Kakka said...

Thanks so much for the award. I ate some small turkish delight eggs I bought for myself before Easter.

I am also the "black sheep" from a Christian family who doesn't go to church. I haven't been there in a very long time. I feel like I should feel more ashamed than I do.
