I'm paying it forward...finally!

I got a couple awards a few weeks ago and I have NOT forgotten about them!! It totally makes my day to come online and see that I have an award waiting for me! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!

Angela at Unexpected Art sent me this award:

I feel especially honored that she passed on this award to me because she is one of the most inspiring, most positive people you'll "meet" in the blogging world! Thank you, Angela, for thinking of me!

So, here are the rules for the Shiny Object (or "Brillante Weblog Premio" Award):

1. Place the logo on your blog.
2. Link to the person who awarded you.
3. You can nominate up to 5 blogs.
4. You can then add their links to your blog.
5. Leave a message in the comment section to each nominee on their blog.

I'm passing this award on to the following:

Angela at Unexpected Art (gotta give her props back because her blog is brilliant!)

Kim at The Mommy Machine (because she always puts a smile on my face with her stories)

Lana at The Kids Did What?! (because she just changed the name of her awesome blog and I think it's pretty darn cool)

Amy at Multiple Madness (she has 2 sets of twins too!!)

Elizabeth at Three Channels (I'm a huge Elizabeth fan...she has such a way with words)

And then, Mrs Bear at Outnumbered Two to One gave me this award:

I absolutely LOVE her blog! Her posts always make me smile! And I can relate in many ways to her when she writes stories about parenthood...I find myself nodding my head in agreement with her many many times! Thank you Mrs Bear for thinking of me!

This award in particular requires that I list six things that make me happy along with six other worthy bloggers that I’ll bestow this trinket to.

In order of importance, these things make me happy:

1) My family (of course, although after the long, tiring day we had today, I did consider listing them as #4)

2) My sleep number bed (seriously, the best bed invented...I admit it, I am in love with my bed)

3) Wellbutrin (I've mentioned this many times....I love the stuff...I surely would've been in a psych ward muttering to myself a long time ago without it)

4) Melatonin supplements (I love these as much as my Wellbutrin...I have my two friends, Leslie and Linda, to thank for turning me onto these wonderful little magic pills that help me get a good night's sleep)

5) Books (yes, books make me happy...I'm a total book worm)

6) The fall weather (everything about it makes me happy...the color the changing leaves, the crispness in the air first thing in the morning, all the holidays that come with it...I'm loving it!)

The 6 ladies I want to pass this award on to are:

Twinmama at Bringing Up Twins

Elizabeth at Parenting Pink

Elle and Stacey at Blue Monkey Butt

Stacy at And So We Laugh

Cathy at Scrapcrank

Nina at Juggling Mama

Oh, thank you for the award! Whew! After a week of sleeplessness I could sure use a little pick-me-up!

Thanks for your support to! The doc said yesterday that Sweet Pea has a bad case of "separation anxiety" (yep, she must be my kid if this is all psychological!), so we have to go the "crying it out" method. Last night was better, but I can never let her cry for too long - I just can't. So, hopefully things will get better!

Thanks for the advice on Hand & Foot too. My girlfriend's child had it and it looked VERY painful. Your poor twins! I'm going to keep your "recipe" in case any of my daughters get it! Thanks a million!
