I'm so happy to report good news today!! Things have been a little hard for my family the past few days--you can read all about it on my blog, The FatKat Kronicles. But I want to talk about all the WONDERFUL things that have been happening in my little blogosphere in the past few days!!!
First of all, if you'll recall, I wrote a blog a few days ago about my best blogger pal, Duni over at Lovely Purses, who was hosting an awesome giveaway on her blog! Naturally, I entered the contest, and was hoping to create even more support for her giveaway by blogging here on S.C.!! I was shocked and honored to find out that I WON!!!! How exciting is that??? I can't wait to receive my beautiful sleep mask, hair accessory, and change purse!!! Thank you SO MUCH Duni!!!! I couldn't be more excited to be your big winner!!!
My second bit of good news involves my sweet pal Kristin from My Art and the Mom in Me. She has been so kind as to give Simply Charming in SC the most fantastic award I've been awarded since I started blogging. It's called the "Generosity Award." I've never seen a blog award like this one, and I'm excited to share it with a very special few of you! But first, let me share the rules!
1) Show generosity towards others in the blogging community by giving a small gift of appreciation. This can be free advertising, a card in the mail, or anything else your imagination takes you.
2) Send this award to at least five others. If you wish to send the award to more then that, feel free to. Generosity has no limits.
3) Link back to the person who sent you this award.
4) Copy the rules as well as the award into your post.
5) Enjoy yourself and have fun!
I'd love to share this award with the following blogs!
AND my awarder, My Art and the Mom in Me
Ok gang, so here's the deal....email me your mailing addresses at email@example.com! I'd like to send you a little something...but it's a surprise!!! (For those who live out of the US, know that I've never, ever shipped anything internationally before, so it will be a learning experience for me!! But I'm up for the challenge!!!) If you're wary about giving out your mailing information, contact me at my email address, and I'll let you in on the secret via email.) It's like Secret Santa, except it's not Christmas, you know you're getting something, and it's via email! LOL! Thanks, Kristin, for including me in this special award--I look forward to spreading a little love with this! I wish I could've included all my favorite blogs in this little giveaway...but another day, I promise!
I'd like to close with a couple of pictures of how I spent my day yesterday...hopefully, if you're feeling the Monday blues, this will bring a smile to your face, if only fleeting. Happy Monday, everyone!!!
