Awards and Twilight...

My first awards, Yea! Rae at My Life on the East Coast has given me the Arte Y Pico award. Thank you Rae! When you get a chance, go over and say hi to Rae. She is such an awesome lady with a beautiful family and a pet rabbit that thinks he's a dog.

I've also received another award from Sheila at Life at Number 17. I was reading Sheila's blog long before I started my own blog. She is such a sweet lady with lots of funny stories. She also loves animals as much as I do.

Now, I'm supposed to pass on these awards to fellow bloggers.

1)Sheila at Life at Number 17-Sheila, I was passing on the Arte Y Pico award to you when I realized you were passing another on to me. You brighten my day each and every time I read your blog. Thank you for being you.

2)Connie at Laughter by Lakeside-Connie probably knows I stalk her blog regularly. I've posted several times about her blog. She has great decorating ideas and two beautiful little girls. I'm sure we would be best friends beyond
blog land.

3)Darlene at Darlene's Days-Darlene is such a loyal friend. If we lived closer we would spend hours talking on her porch, drinking peach tea and enjoying the beautiful scenery.

There are many other blogs out there that I love to read. Too many to list. I'm also thankful for everyone that visits my blog and comments. I get so excited when I hear that computer jingle that says "You've got mail".

Now on to Twilight.

Everybody who's anybody knows what Saturday is. Right? Hello? It's the release of Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyers. The last book in the Twilight series. I'm a super big fan. I've not only named my car after the insanely gorgeous Edward, I've also had my husband change his name to Edward. Only for pretend, of course. ;-)

So, in honor of this momentous occasion, I would like to show you my
Twilight collection. Please don't be jealous.

(The shirt and coffee mug says "Edward Lover")

And if you are one of those (that have been in a cave)that haven't read the series. I would recommend that you DON'T read it. Nothing else compares to this series. It's almost depressing that it's the last book in the series. No more Harry Potter and now no more Edward. :-(

Get out! That Bite Me shirt is just too super! I so need one! And the mug! I'm sure if I go to amazon I can find them...but where DID you get them?!

I'm on pins and needles for Saturday! Did you pre-order or are you running to the bookstore the minute they open?

Trish said...

Okay, I've been living in a cave. I love to read and never heard of this series until recently. After reading the back cover it sill didn't appeal to me -- but there is so much buzz now. Maybe I'll have to read the first one and see where it takes me.

I have heard a lot about this series but haven't read it. I'll have to check it out!

Hi Brandee,
Congratulations on your awards. They are very well deserved!

Guess I've been in a cave, cause I don't have a clue what your talking about. I'll ask my daughter..maybe she isn't so clueless! LOL

Hope you have a great day,

Darlene said...

SO, I guess I need to crawl out from under the rock, huh? I've heard of this, but have not read any of the series. If I get to wear the Bite Me shirt while I read, I am so in!!

So glad you made the recipe. The cheese addition sounds perfect. Next time, I'll try that.

I'm so embarrassed to find out how out of the loop I am on this one. I'll have to check this out and get with it!

Congrats on your awards. You deserve them! -Julia

Connie said...

Yipee! You have made my day. You are too kind and I am very appreciative! As I said once before; you are one terrific cheerleader! We all need someone like you in our corner. And by the way, I lurk around your site on a daily basis as well.

Congrats on your own awards. You deserve them. You are always passing on great ideas and many kind words. Keep it up!

Hey, thanks for the award :)...whoever designed it did a wonderful job...

and those books...I've just started hearing about them & I'm so tempted...

will they give me nightmares? because I'm really good about waking up shrieking about lizards or snakes on the ceiling and stuff like that...
