awww, shucks!

awww, shucks! (bashful look through lashes) i have been nominated for my first award! thank you amanda! i am flattered! i've never been given a "nice" award before! but there is a first for everything, i suppose.

i gather from reading other blogs, that it is now my turn to nominate three, i guess three is the lucky number, bloggers to receive this same award. so, here goes:

the first award, hands down, goes to my little sister, malia. she is the epitome of nice! ask anyone in my family and they all would agree that she is, by far, the nicest of the tarayao sisters. she just oozes sweetness! if only i could have an ounce of her sweetness, i think my kids and husband would be beyond themselves with joy!

the second award goes to rachel, of the wilde things. here is a cute mom of three "wilde boys", with baby number 4 on the way, i'm hoping for a girl! she is an excellent mommie and finds time to sew and quilt beautiful things, bake amazing cakes and goodies, and seems to always have a smile on her face! she is just a "has it all together" kind of girl and i admire all that she does!

and the third award goes to elizabeth, my dear friend and neighbor. new to the blogging world, after much coercion and nagging, i am happy to have her finally join the ranks. since she moved in, over three years ago, she has spoiled me! she is always so willing to help me out by watching my kids, or keeping an eye on our house while we were gone for 7 weeks, she even cleaned my house when she was going through a rough time! (girl, i should have been cleaning your house!) she is an amazing woman!

so, you three nice ladies, it is your turn to nominate your three nice bloggers and keep the love going! and always remember, "nice matters"!

Gee thanks! If you only knew how not nice i can be! hehe jk! I think youre swell and nice and beautiful and a great cook (even if your kids don't know it yet) and fun and crazy (in a good way: our crazy conversations about watches at who knows what hour in the AM) and smart and talented and the best big sister ever!!! I Love you! Remember my offer still stands for you to send the girls out here! ; ) PS... good job on getting the links to work! I knew you could do it!
