3 Great Awards

Once again I've been pretty lax in getting awards passed out so I thought I would take a quick second and get three of them handed out.  I think this will catch me up for the time being.  I want to thank all the fantatic bloggers out there who think of me when they do awards post, it means more to me than you will ever know.

The first award is the Super Comments Award given to me by Carol of Carol's Notebook.  She is a terrific blogger and commenter herself and I find myself visting her blog every day.  If you are unfamiliar with her, please stop by and say hi.

This is a really hard award to narrow down as I've had tons of fabulous comments and commenters recently but since it has to be done, I will be giving this award to 10 bloggers who have left me kind and heartfelt comments lately.  There are others I would give this to as well, but I've already passed this award along to them.

Alexia at Alexia's Books and Such...
Bella at A Bibliophile's Bookshelf
Zia at My Life In Not So Many Words
Michelle at red headed book child
Stephanie at Misfit Salon
Stephanie at Stephanie's Confessions of a Book-A-Holic
Staci at Life in the Thumb
Ceri at Not in the Pink

I really like the picture on this award and it's making me rather hungry for something sweet.  I was awarded this by Angel at story on a page who is a fabulous blogger and a gorgeous layout.  I'm now supposed to list 10 things that makes me happy and then pass this along to 10 other bloggers.

10 Things That Makes Me Happy

My son's laughter
The smell of popcorn
The Denver Broncos winning a game
The upcoming Winter Olympics
A good scary movie
A well done kiss
A nice glass of Merlot
The smell of coconut/lime verbena
Going to the fair

10 Blogs That Make Me Happy (Should be longer but can only be 10)

Melissa at My World
Deb at Bookmagic
La Cocccinelle at The Ladybug Reads
Krista at Life or Something Like It...
Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books
Celia at Adventures of Cecelia Bedelia
Carol at Carol's Notebook
Tasha at Heidenkind's Hideaway
Jennifer at Rundpinne
Susan at Well-Mannered Frivolity

I was given the Humane Award by La Coccinelle at The Ladybug Reads and I'm very honored that she thought of me for this one.  She has a fantastic blog that I encourage everyone to check out.

This award is to honor certain bloggers that are kindhearted individuals. They regularly take part in my blog and always leave the sweetest comments. If it wasn't for them, my site would just be an ordinary book review blog. Their blogs are also amazing and are tastefully done on a daily basis. I thank them and look forward to our growing friendship through the blog world.

I would like to pass this along to these 10 bloggers

Elena at With Extra Pulp
Amanda at A Bookshelf Monstrosity
Angel at story on the page
Michelle at The True Book Addict
Velvet at vvB32 Reads
Jaime at Revenge Of The Book Nerds
Kim at My Eclectic Reads
Kristen at Bookworming in the 21st Century
Peter at KyusiReader
Nikola at Nikola's Book Blog

Thank you so much, Ryan. That's very kind of you to give me an award. I have such a quiet blog that I sometimes think no one notices me. lol I love your blog and even if I don't pop up to say hello, just know that I'm always paying attention to your posts and tweets...well, not in a stalker-type way, but you know, a friendly way! :-)
