I Got Beauty AND Sunshine

I am so honored to receive the Beautiful Blogger Award 

Thanks Gregory J And Linda

from the beautiful blogger, Gregory J at  Living My Life, Whatever . Thank you very much, Greg. I am also honored to have receives the Beautiful Blogger Award from the beautiful blogger Linda at The Good, the Bad, The Worse . Thank you very much, Linda. 

Here’s what we have to do to own the award: 

 1. Thank, then link to the person that gave you the award 

2. Pass this award on to 15 bloggers you’ve recently discovered and whom you think are fantastic 

3. Contact said Blogs to let them know they’ve won. 

 4. State 7 Things about yourself! I’m hoping that doesn’t mean I have to name 30 and list 14… I’m just gonna combine and first off name the things about myself: 

1. I am #5 out of 6 kids. 

2. Growing up, The Waltons were our neighbors. 

3. My elementary school is now a museum. Seriously, I am THAT old… LOL 

4. I am an expert marksman (marks woman?). 

5. I have a hard time saying NO. 

6. It may come as a surprise to you, but, I am actually quite shy. 

7. I have a phobia of cock roaches. UGH… disgusting. 

I am now passing this along to: 

1. SuziCate at The Water Witches Daughter.  She makes me laugh, she makes me cry, she makes me think. I would give it to her even if she weren’t my sister. She’s amazing. 

2. Angelia at Living, Loving, Laughing  I only wish I could be as brutally and painfully honest as she is. She is also one of the most compassionate people I’ve ever met and it comes through in her writing. 

3. Karal at The Orange Chair  Her bravery astounds me. Wish I could be that brave. 

4. Kristen at Motherese.   She takes me back to when my kids were young (and I wasn’t SO old). 

5. Maureen at Island Roar    Her musings on Island life make me feel like I’m there with her. Another compassionate soul as well. 

6. Jane at The Call Me Jane   Because as Kristen put it : She is like aluminum foil – reflecting light and offering a chance for me to look more closely at myself. (Sorry Kristen, had to borrow that because I couldn’t have put it better myself) 

7. Eternally Distracted  love her honesty even if she does want to be anonymous! 

8. Lizzy & Elle over at Sex N Fries   How can you not love someone that is that unafraid to talk about all the things these ladies delve into? 

 9. Sarah & Jen over at Momalom I mean, two sisters, who write blogs and they BOTH have three kids… what’s NOT to love? And they’ve kept their sanity and humor! 

10.Kristina over at Pulsipher Predelictions  She’s witty and honest. 

11. Jen Lancaster over at Jennsylvania – Land of the Free, Home of the Bitter  Her writing is sarcastic and biting (kinda like me?) and her blog (and her books) make me GUFFAW 

12. Krissa @ Halfasstic.com  She’s funny and irreverent and she has girls… what can I say?

13. Lisa F at Peripheral Perceptions I love her perception of things. 

 14. Jen over at Sprite’s Keeper  Makes me remember the “old days” when my kids were young. 

15. Earl Hamner over at You, Me and the Lamppost   Still as great a writer as he ever was. Doesn’t post a whole lot, but he doesn’t need to. Fantastic writer and being from the same town… BONUS! I would only hope to someday be 1/10th the writer he is. 

And now to the second award…The Sunshine Award..  

I received this from both SuziCate over at the Water Witches Daughter http://suzicate.wordpress.com who I adore (not just because she’s my sister and I have to) I think she is incredibly talented and not just in her writing. I got the same award the next Day from Lisa F at Peripheral Perceptions http://peripheralperceptions.wordpress.com I extend a hearty and heartfelt THANK YOU – you made my day to both of them. 

The rules were: to link back and pass it on to twelve other blogs. Some of these are fairly new to me but all make me smile. These are my twelve: drum roll please……. 

1. My Husband Is Annoying  

2. Carma Sez  

3. Living my Life, Whatever  

4.  The Good, The Bad, The Worse  

 5. Chief’s Hiding From the Kids 

6. The Un-Mom  

7. Jill at I Don’t Want an Oscar

8. Real Live Lesbian

9. Adventures of a Grocery Clerk

10. Adventures of a Wannabe Supahmommy 

11.  Half As Good As You

12.  Hissy Fits and Halos  

13.  Insights & Belly Laughs  

14. Mama Kat’s Losing It   

Thanks to all of you for making me laugh and keeping my spirits up! Enjoy and go share the love!

    Thank you so much, Peg, for the Sunshine Award.
    I’m in need of some. We’re having more snow and things are just dreary in general for me right now.

    Now, since I’m a closet editor/teacher: lesson 2 on linking.

    Type the name of the blog first, e.g. living my life, whatever
    Then high light it.
    Then click on the icon of the chain links at the top. chain LINKS, get it? hohoho
    Copy and paste (or type) the target url in the space provided, e.g. http://livingmylife-gregoryj.blogspot.com/
    then click okay.
    Now the text will show only the name of the blog and it will be in a different color and and clickable.
    I’ll be back and check on your progress later. hehehehe

  4. Thanks, Peg. How kind of you to share this award with me. I’m excited to be in the company of so many great bloggers I already know and I’m excited to get to know some new ones.

  5. Hey Peg! Congratulations on the Awards! They are well deserved! (Also, I’m glad to see that I’m not the only woman on here who knows her way around a shooting range!) Hah!

  6. Ron says:

    Congratulations on both awards, Peg!

    Have a great weekend!

  7. Jane says:

    Congratulations! And so well-deserved! I also want to thank you for thinking of me. I’m so touched! Now — off to discover some new blogs!

  8. Mama Kat says:

    Awwwww…I feel honored to be on a list with such wonderful bloggers…do I get some kind of cash reward for this? That’s typically how I prefer my awards. 😉

    • pegbur7 says:

      Yeah, sure, just put it on my account… on account I ain’t got no money! LOL Isn’t that how it goes? I wish I could! 🙂 I do enjoy your blogs though!

  9. Lynn aka RLL says:

    Thanks so much! I can’t wait to visit everyone else’s blog! You are so sweet!!!!

  10. carma says:

    I am honored to be included in the blogs that make you smile 😀 Also fascinated with the whole school to museum thing. Here there are so many children the schools are bursting at the seams…kind of like my pants after a visit to the pizza buffet…but I digress…

    Thanks! 🙂

    • pegbur7 says:

      See? Even your comment made me laugh! Yes, I am from a very small town that was booming in the 50’s/60’s but by the 70’s & 80’s everyone started moving away & the whole town only had like 250 people. All the young couples were moving away to make a living and there weren’t enough kids to warrant them keeping the school open. 😦

  11. Paul Wynn says:

    Congratulations Peg! I had no idea your sister was Suzicate! I knew the sense of humor was somewhat familiar between the two of you!

    • pegbur7 says:

      Thanks Paul! Yes, we are quite similar. Of the four sisters, she and I are the most alike! I appreciate you stopping by. I really enjoy your blog also. I don’t get by every day but I try to catch up every few days! Isn’t my sister just a doll??? Gosh, I love that girl!

  12. LisaF says:

    Well, thank you very much! Two in two weeks. Woo Hoo! I’m on a roll!

    Seriously, I’m flattered and humbled in being one of your recipients. I can’t wait to check out your other recommendations and maybe make some new friends.

    Congrats on your newest award. Your blog is a beautiful blog. I think you are a wonderful, creative writer and enjoy your entries so much.

  13. Kristina P. says:

    I’m sorry it took so long for me to get over here! Thank you so much for the award. It means a lot to me.
