Arte Y Pico Award

I have a new bloggy friend, Theresa Komar. You may have seen her comment here and there, and I'm so grateful she does. This woman has 3 blogs? I ask that in the form of a question (Alex Trebek) not because many of you don't have that many blogs but because I'm not sure exactly how many she has.

Either way, I don't know how many of you deal with multiple blogs. It's all I can do to keep you entertained with just my one blog.

Anywho... Theresa, over at A Bumpy Path, has bestowed an award on me in her post The Arte Y Pico Award. What a SWEET honor!! Thank you, Theresa. I've read some of your other honorees and feel privileged to be considered a part of that group.

Now, Grandy has to quote Theresa's site because I'm not clear where the rules stop and her words begin. So...here it is:

About the Arte Y Pico Award

This award was created to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creativity and their talents, and for contributing to the blogging world in whatever medium. When you receive this award it is considered a "special honor". Once you have received this award, you are to pass it on to 5 others. What a wonderful way to show some love and appreciation to your fellow bloggers!

The rules for passing this honor on are..

1) Pick 5 blogs that you would like to award this honor to. ~ How does Grandy narrow it down to 5 of you? Have you seen my blog roll?

2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.

3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.

4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y Pico" blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award from Arte Y Pico.

And now... the moment you have all been waiting for... My honorees.

In my last award I granted it to blogs that were new, or new to me. However, with this one I knew instantly I would have to honor some real pros. Without these 5 sites, Grandy would not be the obsessed crazy stalker Blogger she is today. Each site has had a positive impact in Grandy's world, and the blogosphere in general.

Mrs. G at Derfwad Manor ~ I can't get enough of my favorite Derfwad. She's a HOOT!! She's on vacation this week, and has some guest posters over there, but I'm sure they can graciously accept this award on her behalf. ;)

Michele over at Writing the Cyber Highway ~ This lady can really make you think, and feel. Isn't that what writers do? Well, Michele will make you put the words into a sentence and push you to get the words written. She is quite a mentor and cheerleader to me. Thank you sweets!

Dee over at On The Curb ~ This woman...what can I say about this curb squirrel? She will make you laugh until you have orange juice coming out your nose. Or maybe that was just me... and just that once.

Chris at Wat da Wat ~ I like the way this guy can tell a story and make Grandy think. Keep up the good work, Chris!

And of course...last but never least we have Sandy at Momisodes. I've learned a lot about what to do, and what NOT to do from her blog. I love how she shares her thoughts with the world, and takes some great pics!! Besides, without her, I would forget what day of the week it is.

Thank you again Theresa. I am truly honored to be among your list of blogs.

Thank you, to all of my readers for stopping and commenting. You all make significant impacts on the blogosphere. If you weren't mentioned in this post, I'm sure you've been mentioned recently. I do talk about all of you crazy cracikers equally. Besides... Grandy doesn't believe in saying anything about anyone that she isn't prepared to say too them.

Congratulations. Bloggy love is the best.

Theresa Komor said...

I can't think of a blog that deserves the award more than Grandy's! It's truly unique and fun and wonderful here.

Um, Grandy, I only have 2 blogs...right now. I'm hoping to keep it that way for as long as possible! If my brain gets going in too many directions, I'd never catch up to it!

Grandy, you're the greatest!

Sandy C. said...

WOW! Congratulations and thank you so much!!! You are such a sweetheart for thinking of me :) I'll be sure to proudly display it at Momisodes!

p.s. The "Recycling" is yours ;)

Ah, you! You're always bringing tears to my eyes with all those fantabulous compliments and sweet things you say about me!

Thanks so much, girl!


storyteller said...

Those of us with multiple blogs are always playing catch-up … Seriously!!! Congrats on the well-deserved award ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Michele said...

Posted about mine, Grandy. Thanks again!

*smiles and hugs*

Congratulations, chickadee! (sorry for the tardy reply..i was here the other day but all hell was breaking loose in La Casa de Screaming Babies at the time, so i didn't get the chance to comment)

And, thank you for passing the award along to me. :-)

Although, I'm curious. Arte y Pico Award? I'm sure they're going for another definition of 'pico' but I'll stick with the slang version. So, thank you, Grandy, for my Art and Penis award! Who doesn't just love art and penis? ;-)

Grandy said...

Mike~ Thanks for always stopping by and wishing me well.

Jenn~ Indeed!!

Theresa~ You are so sweet! Even with 2 blogs, I'm impressed.

Sandy~ KEWL! I will quote you indeed.

Tina~ Thank you very much, lovely flower.

DK~ Did you sleep yet?

Michele~ It is well deserved.

storyteller~ WOW!! It's great to see you again. I don't know how to keep up with one.

Michele (take 2)~ I'm on my way to check it out.

Dee~ Seriously? So tell me what Pico de Gallo means?? ;)

onthecurb said...

Rooster's beak supposedly. Who wants to eat Rooster's penis? Not me. ;-)

And, thus ends my 'too much information' spewing in Grandy's comments.

Grandy said...

Dee~ BUT WHY? I love it when you comment!! :D And see how much we've all learned?

onthecurb said...

Exactly...how much we've all learned.

I was thinking in the car yesterday (b/c, really, that's the only place i have enough lucidity to think - with all the kids tucked quietly in carseats behind me) about how I open the floodgates of TMI in other people's comment sections. I mean, yeh, I blather on about my crotch on my own site, but I save the really juicy stuff for comments. Man, if someone ever tracked all my comments, I'd be a slew of trouble. ;-)

Grandy said...

Dee~ I <3 U. You make me smile. :)
