My First Awards!

I know I have a whole weekend, including my amazing surprise date(!), to catch you up on, but wanted to give proper posting... er... props to Daisy over at Dugout Daisy, who gave me not one, but *two* awards (and my first, to boot!). Daisy always sends me fun and thoughtful comments, and her enthusiasm for all things Dodgers and the Twilight series is infectious:

I feel doubly honored, as I received the award below from Daisy AND from Hopsy over at Monograms ans Manicures. Hopsy was one of the first blogs I followed religiously, so it's a real honor to be thought of. In my humble opinion, she is the epitome of a Classy Kappa, and I'm proud to call her a sister!

Characteristics for the Smile Award:

1. Must display a cheerful attitude. (I try to take after Mama Martini in that regard)
2. Must love one another. (Makes sense)
3. Must make mistakes. (Don't we all?)
4. Must learn from others. (Always)
5. Must be a positive contributor to blog world. (Working to get there someday...)
6. Must love life. (Hope you can sense this already?)
7. Must love kids. (Wouldn't babysit twice a week if I didn't!)

These are the rules for the Smile Award:
1. The recipient must link back the award's creator.
2. You must post these rules if you receive the award.
3. You must choose 5 people to receive the award after receiving it yourself.
4. You must fit the characteristics of the recipient of the award, as posted by Mere.
5. You must post the characteristics of a recipient.
6. You must create a post sharing your win with others.
7. You must thank your giver.

I'd like to give both of these awards to:

Miss Nina over at {Nina's Blog}! Nina, your comments always make me smile, and nobody can "holla at a playa" in pearls the way you can ;)

Naturally Caffeinated Family - I'm just getting to know her and her blog, but I really enjoy the way she writes! I'm looking forward to reading more soon.

Carrie over at Buzzings of a Queen Bee - I'm just bowled over by all her great home projects! I can totally appreciate her sense of style (and organization!)

Broke-Ass Bride - First off, her blog title always makes me laugh (I think all brides feel that way at some point!) . I'm looking forward to reading more about her creative wedding plans.

New Girl from New Girl On Post - I really enjoy reading about her adventures (and misadventures!) as a newlywed stationed on an Army base.

I apologize for not thanking you sooner, Daisy, but I'm still trying to find the balance between everything going on in my life (insert blog subtitle here) AND juggle blogging all in the same day. You daily posters are an inspiration for me! Hopefully I'll find the balancing act soon.

This little martini needs to hit the hay now, as part of the awesome job requires me to be in the office, ready to go, at 6 am at least once a week. Awesome Boss and I have to hit the road no later than then to head out to Greenwich, CT, where he’s designing a 24,000 square foot home (and no, the comma is not in the wrong place!) That translates to a 4am wake-up time for me, so I’d better wash the face, brush the teeth, and slip on my little sleeping eye mask. Mr. Wonderful is still studying at the desk, so I’m going to do my best impression of Miss Holly Golightly in order to get some rest.

Night, ladies!
