Thank You! Awards For Me; Awards For You


My readers make me smile, so stay for a while, please take your time. ;-)

At my elementary school, whenever one of us would compliment the other or whenever we did something we were proud of, we would boastfully say "Arretez les flashes!" -- "Stop the flashes!" -- as if we were talking to the Paparazzi. So with 7 more awards in such a short time, I just laughed out loud when I saw this theme was available and I couldn't resist.

This blog is quickly looking like a Hollywood Blog rather than a Dessert Blog!! I'm having award posts almost as often as dessert posts. And my thanks go to:

*** Mercedes of Mercedes Rules for giving me this "Share The Love" award with a touching message on June 18, 2008. These are the rules which must be posted:



This award was created by Memoirs of a Mommy. It’s a very special award that she created in Honor Of The Donor That Saved (her son) Noah’s Life. Noah received a heart transplant, and she hopes that by passing this award around the blogosphere everyone can help raise awareness of the need for Organ Donation.

The rules of this award are: SHARE THE LOVE!!! Share this award with all those blogs out there that you love. All the people who make you smile. All those that make you laugh. All those that make your day. All those that leave uplifting comments on your blog.

**All I ask, is that you include a link to this post with the award and ask your recipients to do the same**


As the song playing with the paparazi slideshow says, "you (my readers) make me smile. Please stay for a while now, just take your time, wherever you go (on my blog)." So if you are one of my regular readers, this award is FOR YOU!!
