An award for me!

While I was away goofing off, Tamera over at Simplifying Life and Love was generous enough to send this lovely award my way. Now I usually don't get all yackity (is that a word?) and stuff when someone gives me something but this indeed is an honor. To be recognized by Tamera says a lot and means a lot. Be sure to pop by her site to witness her genius on relationships and other subjects. She's also giving Hurricane Ike a run for his money so check that out too. Meanwhile, I will be basking in my glory for a few days and passing on the tribute!

The Award goes to ........... Intrepid

Passing on the tribute might just be a little easier said than done. I learned from Pentad's site that there are a few rules:

Upon winning this award you are tasked with the following:

1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language
2. Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3. Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4. Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of “Arte y Pico” blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award. http://arteypico.blogspot.com/ (Ah, a little link love).

So here goes....... Naturally, there are so many Blogs out there deserving recognition for their creativity and material. There's no way in the world that I can recognize all the sites that have inspired me. I also understand that this award comes with an obligation to pass it on. If you elect not to participate for whatever reason, I completely understand. Know that you are appreciated all the same.

The first on my list, and these blogs are in no particular order, is BellyDance Girl.

I can't say enough about my true Blog Buddy. She entered into the blog community with a site to chronicle her experiences with Belly Dancing but that proved too limiting. So now in addition to her dancing she's the latest and hottest VLOG sensation. Furthermore, she has started a new blog: A Bride on A Budget to show her skills. Did I mention she's engaged? Sorry. I know hearts are breaking. Good Luck with your future endeavors BDG and enjoy the much deserved award.

Next on my list is the zany and nutty but oh so talented SpeedCat Hollydale. Now he needs another award like he needs another crazy joke on his site. But I must recognize him for his comedic insanity. I'll warn you, his site can be addictive. And you may laugh so hard that you hurt yourself. I find myself going there regularly just to see what madness he's conjured up.

The third blog on my list is written by the lovely and talented Heather Dugan at Footsteps. Not only can she write, but she shoots a great camera as well. So at her site you get great photography, wonderful reading material, and to top it all off..... you can hit the play button and listen to her priceless voice. That's right she'll lay down a great audio track for you to listen to while you read along. Truly magnificent.
Next on my list is Micki's Morsels. I've just recently discovered this site but as each day passes I find it more and more scrumptious. I don't want to ruin the surprise so click on over there and see what you think. I'll give you a hint.... You'll find loads of dishes, and recipes with photos that this mother of eight has prepared. How does she find the time? That's the creative part. Hit her site and learn how she does it.
Number five on the list is Jane Turley wait a second. I can't give it to her. She's a co-recipient along with me. So I guess I'll have to send over to Dr. Steven J. Balassi at Worldly Economic Thoughts..... Anyone who can put rhyme or reason into this roller coaster ride of economic blunders must be a creative genius. Pop over to his site for an understanding of all of this stuff.
Well that's it for this post. There are certainly others blogs deserving of this award. Your time will come. Trust me!
Have Fun~
