Awe-Summm Award!


Thank you, Nana Trish at Nana's Living the Dream for such an Awe-Summ award! (Pun intended!) You KNOW I lurve the bling-bling crown, it's soooo me and the retro look of the drawing is right up my artistic alley too!
The idea here is to list 7 things that make ME Awe-Summm!!! (Hmm, this took 3 hours to do, so it's not as easy as you'd think!)
1) I rarely complain about anything. I can thank my Mother for that learned behavior.
2) I have the gift of discernment and it has served me well in life.
3) I can make the birthday cakes my children request at their birthdays. Not exact replica's from the pictures but they are pretty darn close!
4) I am Betty Crocker in the kitchen. When I go out to eat at a restaurant, all I ask is that the chef make it better than me. That shouldn't be hard, right?!
5) I host Afternoon Tea Parties that are filled with fun, laughter, good food and memories!
6) I could be Nancy Drew! I see things that others often miss. I can accurately guess the outcome of CSI shows and mysteries 99% of the time. Kind of takes the fun out of it though too 'cause I know what's going to happen.
7) I love, love, love my Jesus! Without Him, I would NOT be Awe-Summm or Cha Cha!
You're right Nana Trish, that was not easy. It's always easier to see the wonderful traits in others, rather than yourself. Now the rules are to tag 3 people with this Awe-summm award! This is difficult because I have MANY Awe-Summ bloggy friends that I could tag, but I will choose 3 ladies who consistently visit me and leave comments that make my day: Cynthia at Muse-Swings, Lavinia at Birdbath Chronicles, Sparky at My Thoughts Exactly!

Congratulations ChaCha Girl! :o) You are grace and beauty and so totally deserve the Aw-Sum Award. Thank you for passing it on to lil 'ol me! Gracious, I am completely humbled. Dang, now I gotta work too. [pout] I hate thinking about myself because I think of myself as rather boring. [lol] I'll give it a try. Give me a few days. Thank you again. ((Hugs)) Pamela :o)

Congratulations on this aww-summ award! Wow, I like your awesome qualities and wish I had access to your kitchen! (Or should I say the tempting delights that are served up in your kitchen.)

I'm with you on the Nancy Drew. I fancy myself a sort of gumshoe too!

Janeen, I haven't been here in a while (and I apologize for that), but Lavinia directed me to your #7 and I'm with you on that one for sure! (Oh, and I loved Nancy Drew - still do!)
I will make an effort to visit more often.

Wanted to mention that I can now relate to this beautiful song after watching Miss Pettigrew Lives for A Day -- it was so endearing, Janeen!

And Boopy surely does sound like Oopsie. LOL Sounds like Oopsie is having the time of its life!

Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend! :))

That really is a good list, and a very good exercise, actually. As hard as it is, it is a good idea to sit down and assess one's awesome-ness on a regular basis. It's good for the self-image.

And I agree, you ARE pretty awesome.

Oh I am the original Nancy Drew. I say we have a CSI contest! Winner has to make something Betty Crocker.
