My First Award – And I’m Honestly Honored

February 5, 2010 at 12:52 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 22 Comments

I’m so excited to announce that I’ve just received my first ever blogging Award. EVER!  Honest! Scouts Honor! 

 I’ve been blogging since May and I’ve seen many awards passed between food bloggers, but none were ever sent my way.  

Just when I was starting to feel like the Susan Lucci of blogdom, Kristi over at Mother Rimmy’s sent me this Honest Scrap Award!

Even though I don’t see Kelly Ripa or Oprah openly sobbing for joy in the audience, I’m totally enjoying the virtual standing ovation from my fellow bloggers (that I’ve dreamed up).

I’d like to accept this award and let you know how honored I feel to be recognized by Kristi. I love Kristi’s blog. I think I’ve bookmarked more recipes from her blog than any other and one of these days I’m going to give them all a try!   Honest! I promise!

So, without further ado, the rules of this award are to tell you 10 honest things about me and pass the award on to 10 deserving recipients.

  1. I’m honestly very honored to get my first ever blogging award from one of my peers.
  2. I love waking up early in the morning. It’s so peaceful and the sunrises are spectacular.
  3. I love Big Macs and McDonald’s fries and when I allow myself a once a year indulgence I sit in the car and eat them like a starved wild animal.
  4. I’m very patriotic and tear up almost every time I hear the National Anthem.
  5. I’d honestly love to move to Oregon, but can’t imagine living without those majestic Rocky Mountains in my back yard.
  6. I love to cook so much that we have to practically force ourselves to go out to a restaurant.
  7. Two of my favorite movies are those Quintin Tarantino Kill Bill Movies – honest!
  8. I treat my two little Yorkshire Terriers like they are my children.
  9. I honestly love our big snow storms and love being snowed in.
  10. I’d love to open up that Foodbuzz Top 9 and one day see one of my recipes, and I think I’d faint if  Tastespotting actually accepted one of my photos.  🙂

And here are the 10 bloggers I’d honestly like to pass this award to:

Vickie over at Part 3

Steph, Plain Chicken



Nibble Me This

Chili Cheese Fries

George, Nod and Wink

Liz, Zia in the Kitchen

Mad Meat Genius

Katherine, Smoky Mountain Cafe  (Go Saints)

And since I received this award, Dave over at Year on the Grill gave me another award where I’m suppose to lie…stay tuned!  Thanks Dave.

    • Well Thank you George. Right back atcha

  8. I’m happy that you’re happy! I do not give nor receive awards… I was competitive all my life, amassing trophies in numerous events..I gave bags of them away to Special Olympics, to remount with whatever event a kid won. A time to give, a time to receive- but that is just me now days..Congrats again- you deserve it!

    • And that’s exactly why I didn’t pass it along to you Mr. Buff. 😉

      As always, thanks for stopping by.

  9. Congratulations on your award! They are so exciting to receive…to me it means another blogger really appreciates you and your blog and that means a lot to those of us who never thought we’d ever get an award for anything!!

    • Couldn’t agree more. Well said.

  10. Congratulations! Keep up the good work!
    Great looking site.

  11. Hey Thanks! This is my first award too! Thanks for passing it along!

  12. I had to laugh about your Comment about the PhotoBullies and TasteMeanies. It’s getting harder and harder to get accepted. Mass volume I suppose! There are other sights though. Have you seen SavorySights? Rex is a nice guy and finds a place for every entry, either on the main page or wjat he calls “going back for seconds”, much more civilized. GREG

  13. Congrats, Lea Ann!

  14. 1) I’m just amazed that this is your first one. I figured you had many.
    4) Me too, embarrassingly so. I just get moved.
    6) We were SO disappointed that we ran out of leftovers for lunch on Friday and had to eat out. ick.
    8) refraining from Yorkshire Pudding joke.
    10) I haven’t even tried posting at one of those sites. They don’t deserve me (that’s my story and I’m sticking to it 😉

    Thanks for the award!!!

    • I’m loving your number 10 – it’s my new story too, which I’ll be sticking by. Thanks Chris, and as always, thanks for stopping by

  15. Congrats, Leaann! Long overdue and well deserved!!
