I smell some lemonade!

You all are too sweet to have nominated me for my first blog award...THE LEMONADE AWARD.

I was nominated by three lovelies...DecoAurora's Mslay; Head to Toe with Heidi's HeidiG, and Three Sparrows and Some Sparkle's sparrowsandsparkles. I blush!

The award is for sites that demonstrate great attitude and/or gratitude in general.
"When life hands you lemons, make lemonade."
Upon receiving the Lemonade Award, you also pass it on to other bloggers who you think show great attitude and or gratitude.

Here are the rules:
1. Put the logo on your blog or post
2. Nominate at least 5-10 blogs that show great Attitude and or Gratitude.
3. Be sure to list and link nominees within your post.
4. Let them know they have received this award by leaving a comment on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to this post and to the person from whom you received your award.
So here are my nominees for the Lemonade Award.
These are blogs/sites where the owner shows a positive and/or humorous take on life, as well as shows gratitude/thankfulness for life in general:

(Here is my caveat--all of these blogs that I follow have been nominated multiple times by others for this award--so I will be a bit different--I will post their web address and in one sentence say what I LOVE about their site!) I love when she posts on her site because they are always very informative and well-researched, kind of like "fun" persuasive essays! I love that she show us how to use clothes in many different ways and shows us how classy we all can be... Slastena is the Queen of Cool...I suspect we all want to be her! Fun takes on a variety of AWESOME promotional codes (THANK YOU)! Gorgeous outfits and funny outtakes from her life (I also ADORE the name of her blog)! Such a pretty, creative, unique blog run by a lovely woman! How does she find the time? A mother of boys and still able to come up with outfits that would take others forever to create... Girl...your reviews make my is like a bit of candy when you are supposed to be on a diet! Love your style...unique pieces styled so everyone can wear them. HeidiG--you had me at Life is too short for ugly shoes... This blog is too precious...her love of life, her family, and God is very clear and humbling for all of us who are fortunate to have discovered her site. Umm, I think Alexis was the catalyst for many of us to start our own blog...without her, half of us would not exist in this cyber-world. Too cute and such a sweet girl in charge of this blog...any site with Hello Kitty has to be great! Oh my favorite mountain girl--a teacher who gets it!!! Joyce...I want to be you. That simple...thanks for all your advice on dealing with my daughter in the future! ;) Mike is a genius about all things mid-century and modern in the DC area. He has NO love for J. Crew, but 'tis okay in my book...awesome blog! Can I say that she has echoes of Audrey Hepburn in her outfits? Love the way she marries Lost and J. Crew! :) I need help with parenting...such a great resource I have with this blog! I happened upon her site and have been hooked ever since...she even has my birthday (Canada Day--only hint). Oh Katy O. Love you, love your style, love your insightful posts! Funny and delightful blog...glad she sees messed-up fashion as an opportunity to blog! Old J. Crew name...still 100% fierce!
Thank you all for making everyday a reading pleasure!

HeidiG: I loved creating yesterday's post--took me forever--but sometimes it is worth that extra bit of time...I am glad you started your blog, so if I had any part of it, I am honored!

Lissa: :) (Smiles all around!)

Snea: Yeah, who woulda thunk it? Remember the conversation you, me, and my bro had about my blog having no visitors outside of you? ;)

Slastena said...

Dina- thank you so much! You are so sweet and positive in every way- I love how you found amazing things to say to each one of us!
