Blog Love and the Dashner Winner!!

It's time to give some overdue award thank you's. I have been blessed with some great awards from some even greater blog buddies recently. Time to share the love!

The fabulous Jay Eckert and the beautiful Jana Hutcheson both gave me the Sunshine Blog Award, which is one of my favorites (you all know how I LOVE yellow). It's such a cheerful-looking award!

I pass this award to the following sunny blogs:

T.H. Mafi @ Grab a Pen (OMG! Need I say more?)
Kristi Chestnutt @ Random Daily Thoughts (Her smile is pure sunshine)
Charmaine @ Wagging Tales (Holy cow! This woman is brilliant!)
Courtney @ Southern Princess (Gotta love a happy princess)
Jonathon Arntson @ Jon's Life (You ALWAYS make me smile!)

My bloggy bff Carolyn @ Checkerboard Squares gave me the Happy 101 Award, which goes to blogs that spread the joy.

I pass this award to the following happy places:

~ Tracy @ Forever Endeavor (anyone who loves baseball like she does makes me happy!)
~ Jaydee @ Jaydee Morgan (check out her blog - it's too cool)
~ Theresa @ Substitute teacher's Saga (substitutes deserve all the happiness possible)
~ D.L. Hammons @ Cruising Altitude (because he needs more awards and he always makes me smile)
~ Lindsay @ Adventures in Writing (thanks for your regular comments!)

Next is the awesome Sweet Blog Award, which I've been drooling over for a while now. Charmaine @ Wagging Tales chose to share the cute little bear with me. Yay!

I pass this award to the following sweet blogs:

Milly and Tilly @ Paper Dolls (these darling sisters are too precious for words - go follow them and enjoy their sweet book reviews!)
Leah @ Reading, Writing, Raisin' Boys (she is a sweetheart! Go visit her and say hello.)
Heather @ Heather's Odyssey (Her Moon series sounds awesome!)

@ Milk & Cookies (If you like MG, you MUST follow her blog!!)
Heather Kelly @ Edited to Within an Inch of My Life (oh, the things she does for us - too many to name!)

And then there is the darling Cheree Smith @ Justified Lunacy who gave me the Beautiful Blogger Award.

I pass this award to the following beautiful bloggers:

Roxane @ Peace Garden Writer (If you are not following Roxane, I say with all my heart that you should be. She is one of the most beautiful people I have ever known - inside and out!)
Sharon Mayhew @ Random Thoughts (Her blog is full of beautiful photos and lovely thoughts)
Emily Ann Benedict @ Benedictions (Her blog is all things beautiful!)
Rayna @ Coffee Rings Everywhere (I love her blog and I LOVE its title)
Faith Pray @ Sacred Dirt (Could she have a cooler name?!)

Creepy Query Girl (isn't that the coolest blog name?) gave me the One Lovely Blog Award.

I pass this award to the following lovely blogs:

The Alliterative Allomorph (check out her awesome blog!)
Lydia Kang @ The World is My Oyster (her medical Mondays are amazing)
Candace @ The Misadventures in Candyland ( she is so much fun!)
Roland @ Writing in the Crosshairs (he is one of my new must-reads)
