I’d like to thank my family, friends, blogging buddies…

by Jenn (eating bender) on July 22, 2008

I’m practicing my acceptance speech:mrgreen:

Katie over at The Summertree Café was sweet and generous enough to give me the Brillante Weblog 2008 award! First of all, THANK YOU KATIE! I absolutely love reading your blog and look forward to all of your deliciously creative ideas such as Nutmeg-Yam Muffins (which I fully intend to make soon!) and Carrot Cake Pancakes. You must check out her blog! She also makes her own jewelry!

And now I must pass along this lovely award to some (but certainly not all!) of my favorite bloggers. So as not to alienate anyone (because there are too many blogs I love!), I have written down my entire blogroll and have chosen 7 (my lucky number) bloggers AT RANDOM. That way, it’s all up to Lady Luck to decide:)

Here are the guidelines:

*Put the logo on your blog.
*Add a link to the person who awarded you.
*Nominate at least seven other blogs.
*Add links to those blogs on your blog.
*Leave a message for your nominee on their blogs.

And without further ado…here are the 7 RANDOMLY selected bloggers!

1. Caroline of The Broccoli Hut

2. Sarah of Ourkitchenadventure’s Weblog

3. Julz of SIMPLE and DIVINE

4. Allison of Sweets by Alli

5. Liz of VeggieGirl

6. Carmen of The Oatmeal Experiment

7. Em of Gliding Calm

All of you ladies more than deserve the award. Your posts make me smile every time I read them:)

Congrats on the award! Your entries always make my day that much more interesting 😀 I still have yet to try your coffee cocoa concotion, but ONE DAY I will do it!

And thank you for the nomination! Way to feed my ego XD

Aww thanks so much Jenn! My very first blogging award, I will cherish it forever : ) Haha, and congrats to you too—you’re blog is one of my absolute favorites and as you know I’ve gotten so much inspiration from your food choices. Without you I would have never discovered such amazing things as: unsweetened almond breeze, cinnamon raisin peanut butter, zbars, flat-out wraps, and the list goes on. And also I think you may be the only one who really, truly shares my love for the Panera Strawberry Poppyseed Salad.

Have a fabulous day!

Allison ~ You definitely earned the award with all of your baking and decorating talent!!

lexi ~ Aw, thank you so much! I’m going to have to check out yours now 😉

Julz ~ I would LOVE to meet you too! We would have so much fun, I’m sure of it :) And of course I always look forward to reading your awesome, awesome blog!

Foodie ~ Aw, thank you so much! You must know I love your blog as well – hence why I had to randomly choose from my blogroll. There are just SO many talented bloggers to choose from!!

Carmen ~ Yes, you MUST try Coffee Cocoa. And I’m always up for feeding your ego, my breakfast co-challenger :)

Sarah ~ Ah, the Panera Poppyseed Salad – I MUST get that again soon! Thank you for your sweet comment – of course you deserve the award. Your blog is wonderful and I’ve gotten so many ideas that I NEED to buy when I’m at the store soon – especially those Smart Ones desserts. Those are top on my list!

Fitzalan ~ Love your name, by the way :) I promise I actually work, too. But if there is EVER a lull, I am definitely spending the time on the blogs :)
