Queen For The Day!

“Aww shucks!”

‘Thank you’ to ShabbyChicks for the awesome award of
Queen of All Things Awe-summm!!! It was so thoughtful of you and I love it! Suzanne’s blog is brimming with Florida sunshine (which is her personality), insights, recipes and fun.
I read her musings every day and you probably do too!

And…who wouldn’t love to have the honor of this retro queen grace her blog with not just a tiara but a full jeweled crown resting on her majestic crowning glory complete with a string of pearls! If I could Photo Shop her holding a pink martini I would but she is perfect just the way she is!

So, as Queen and recipients of this dubious honor, we are to:
1.List seven things that make us awe-summm.
2.Pass the award on to seven bloggers we love.
3.Tag those bloggers to let them know that they are now Queens of All Things Awe-Summm.
4.Don’t forget to link to the Queen that tagged us.
5.If you would like, copy the pic and put it on your sidebar so everyone knows that you’re a Queen.

It’s kind of hard tootin’ my own horn but here goes…

My 7 Things:

I always put my family first.

I have raised with my husband, two sons who are model citizens, respectful and caring of others and have instilled in them a love and passion for learning. Although these fine attributes might be their own doing, I am taking most of the credit being a SAHM and if they were your sons, you would be doing the same. 🙂

I am very sentimental and appreciative of others who contribute their time and talents, especially to students. I once wrote a letter to a former high school teacher 15 years after I had graduated thanking him for the impact he had on my life. The response I received from him was overwhelming and he framed my letter and hung it up in his office. I couldn’t believe he was so touched by this gesture. Every year I ‘encouraged’ my sons to write thank notes to their teachers (as wonderful as they are they’re still boys and this is not their favorite thing to do) and I also write my own notes to teachers to thank them too. Now I am ‘encouraging’ you with the school year ending to get those pens a movin’! 🙂

I always think someone could be a potential new friend. 🙂

I really do make the best chocolate chip cookies in the world from my grandmother’s recipe that has a secret ingredient. 🙂

I only know of one other person who knows the lyrics to more songs than I do and I humbly acknowledge his superiority in this venue. Congressman, this is you.

I throw the best themed parties, or at least I think so.

As Queen (of my own blog), or Mistress of My Own Domain, (if you watch Seinfeld), I declare that today this awesome award in turn be given to these wonderful queens of their own blogging queendom:
All Things Southern & Preppy
Etiquette With Miss Janice
Petunia in Paradise
Pink In A Sea of Blue
Posh Mama (‘shhh’ – private blog)
Stella’s Mom

You ladies, are wonderfully awesome!

  5. Hi!
    I am so honored to be crowned Queen! Thank-you very much. Right now I’m at work, so I can’t do a whole lot on this computer. As soon as I get a chance, I’m posting my new award! Have a great day!

  6. Congratulations! Very well-deserved and thank you so much for your kind award. Have a wonderful week!

  7. Thanks!! I will be doing this asap! You are the Best!! xoxo

  8. Thank you…every day is tiara day for Miss Janice!

  9. reply from your comment to me: we use the recipe on the toll house morsels bag with real butter. But yes, the result depends on the mixing consistency. Do you mix the dough by hand or food processor? Do you use dark or light brown sugar? Other than that, it’s up to the baker. But yours sound wonderful!

  10. I love your blog!!! I just found you and am so happy I did. You’re fresh, funny, and oh so stylish. Have a great day.


  11. Thanks for this award! Enjoy your royal day! You deserve it! I’ll post this soon.

  12. Thank you!!! How very sweet! I loved your list, especially #4!
    AND I am a homemade chocolate chip expert myself who is dying to know your secret ingredient!!!

  13. I so agree with you on the value of thank-you notes, and I had to smile on you “encouraging” your sons to write thank you notes. In my house, it was less encouragement and more battle, but hopefully my sons will realize the worth of a hand-penned note as they get older and write them without my heavy-handed “suggestions!”
