… I’d like to thank the Academy…

March 9, 2010

Well, looky here.

A little while ago I received a comment on a recent blog post. It arrived in my email box, all wrapped up in brown paper and clearly marked FRAJEELAY.  Someone had sent me a Major Award!

Oh, look at it. Isn’t it beautiful? I’m running my hands lovingly up and down the edges and I’m setting it in my window for all to see.:)

No really. My good friend, fellow tall girl, Milligan alum, and Feb. 7 birthday sharer, Sylvie bestowed this great honor upon me and my little blog today. Thanks, Sylvie! Sylvie (whose name for some reason is hard for me to type correctly) is an artist of a different kind… she makes fabulous glass beads and sells them online, you can view her bead website here or look for more photos of some of her work in some facebook photo albums, here and here

So, apparently with this great honor comes great responsibility. I now have to pass the award on to other blog friends. The official rules say 12 friends, but I don’t have that many friends. What??!?! I’ll just do the best I can with the friends I have.

The rules for accepting the Sunshine Award are: (if you are a recipient, take note)

  • Put the logo on your blog or within your post.
  • Pass the award onto 12 bloggers. [I’m making an executive decision here and saying, pass it on to as many friends as you like.]
  • Link the nominees within your post.
  • Let the nominees know they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
  • Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award.
  • Oh, and also post these rules, so people know what to do.
Without any further ado, the winners (from me) of the Sunshine Award are:
  1. SmallWorld at Home A blog about family, daily life, memories, etc. by another college friend, Sarah. Sarah is a great writer… don’t miss it when she posts a memory or a poem!
  2. This is My “Real” Blog written by Angie, yet another college friend (I loved college). She writes about cooking, crafts, NASCAR, and the joys and challenges of raising her children. Since I can’t have a cup of tea with Angie on a regular basis, I like to sit down and read her blog. It’s like having a nice chat.
  3. Clan McIntire is a blog by Chris, another friend from Milligan (hey! What’s up with all these college friends! Enough already!) He has some family stuff on there but the biggest thing that I enjoy following are his running endeavors. I am a novice jogger myself and it’s good to read from the annals of a more experienced runner on his crazy workouts with his friends in Oklahoma.
  4. 900 miles is written by Randy, the husband of Sarah (from #1) and also my most competitive Word Twist opponent on facebook. His blog recounts his journey toward hiking all 900 miles of trails in Smoky Mountain National Park. Oh and guess what? I met Randy at Milligan, too. 🙂

That’s all for now. I could come up with a few more, but I have acceptance speeches to give and awards night parties to attend…



  1. I’m glad you awarded Sarah and Angie because those are 2 blogs I really enjoy!!

  2. Aww….you and Sylvie are gonna make me cry. 🙂

  3. I thought I was your most competitive Word Twist opponent?
