Old Business & A New One!

I need to take a couple of minutes today and thank two very wonderful ladies who have blessed me with an award........

Laurie Ann at "A Magnolia's Heart Beats" and Lea at "Shabby Olde Potting Shed" have both bestowed upon me the Arte Y Pico award.

Although I don't know what the wording actually means, I have seen the button bouncing around Blog Land and I am very honored to now have one of my own. I am amazed that anyone cares to read my ramblings, much less that they would give me an award for them! Thank you Laurie Ann and Lea!

Now I am supposed to share the wealth and pass the award on to five other bloggers. However, I have two problems with that:
1) I could never just choose five blogs out of all the ones that bless me.
2) Many of you have already received the award and what would you do with multiple Arte Y Pico awards?? The mantle might begin to look really crowded. LOL!

So if you are a reader of my ramblings and haven't received your Arte Y Pico award I am bestowing it upon you now!!!

As if the award was not enough, I would also like to thank Laurie Ann for allowing me to do her new blog design. I have been attempting to build a little "Blog Design" business in my spare time so I was thrilled when she asked me about a "blog redo"!

Please forgive the following shameless self promotion:
If you are ever in need of a "new look" I would LOVE to help! I am also considering doing some "holiday designs" if there is any interest. Feel free to email me if you want to know more.

Well, I think that about covers it! Today I am off to lounge in the sun and splash in the pool with the kids. Summer is passing by way too quickly and before we know it they will be back in school. Meanwhile enjoy your day and remember to be careful out there......

"Arte Y Pico" has no direct English translation from Spanish. However, it means "over the top," or "the maximum." I've enjoyed reading your posts, though I haven't posted any responses.

Please get some sun for me....This month of bed rest is not at all how I had intended to spend my summer, so I
am living vicariously through others.:)

I miss getting to hang out by the pool with a good book or the latest issue of US Weekly.:)

Have fun!

Funny clip.

Congratulations on the award, I just got one too and it brightened my day. Good idea to pass it along to others that don't have one.

Okay, I don't have the award, but I feel shamefully selfish in asking for it! :)

Now, about this business of yours...why don't you email me a little bit about what you do as well as some prices! I need an OVERHAUL!!

Prayers and blessings,

I've got tears in my eyes from laughing so hard at that video!


Runner Mom said...

That video clip was priceless! I want my boys to see it!!

I would love to hear about your business!! My blog is not CUTE!!! It needs a makeover--just not an expensive one!!

Email me when you get time--after lounging in the sun!!

Love ya, Susan

Laurie Ann said...'re welcome. And thank you for the sweet comment on the TT post. That video made me laugh till I cried. Loved the ones of the animals especially.

Hey Kelley!! Congrats on the reward! :) You deserve it girl!

Krista said...

That was a great video! Very funny (and somewhat painful) to watch. Hey, I think I need to talk to you about a new look! My page is icky!

Have a great day,

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Oh, fun! Glad you got an award! :)

I'm so excited about your little blog design business! Good for you! I'd love to have one done but just waiting on a few things financially before I spend money on my blog. :)

Jamie @ Purposeful Pursuit said...

That video was too cute. Enjoy your time by the pool.

Kelley does a great job. She helped me with some framing of pictures on mine! And such a sweet gal. I love her heart. Don't you all?
