Arte Y Pico Awards

I never thought I'd be blogging about my life and being awarded for it.

Seriously! When I was reading McMommy the other night I was again astounded to be treated to another gift, the Arte Y Pico Award. Being the way I am, I immediately looked up the word Pico and tried to find a decent translation. Obviously Arte in Spanish (or Portuguese) is Art. But, Pico means a heck of a lot of things. I decided that on Googling Arte Y Pico Award I found out the gist of the meaning. Creativity maybe? Of course I can't stop thinking about Pico de Gallo salsa, but that's a whole other train of thought.

So now I've been bestowed the Creativity and Art award and I'm ever so pleased.



So I pay it forward to the following blogs:


Haley-O at Cheaty Monkey is an artist, a witty writer, a Yogi, a mother, and has a rockin' Gossip blog too.


Kristen at La Dolce Vita makes beautiful creative jewelry that she sells on Etsy (and I also have bought from her for a gift and for myself). She is a big contributor to the MBC and is a sweetheart!


Angie at John Deere Mom is a funny country girl with amazing recipes and WHAT? a college-reading-leveled blog...i'm green with tractor envy!


Michelle at Eat, Sleep, Create rocks photography and is one of my new-found blogs I enjoy!


Finally, Kate at Just Another Day in Paradise, again, the photography is amazing, the blog itself is tropical eye candy, and her posts are so very touching!


Now...pass on the love. Anyone, everyone!

    Oh Lord: "I Hope You Dance"....don't you know I'm still an emotional wreck? Listened to "You're Gonna Miss This" on my Power Walk yesterday and had tears streaming from my sunglasses. What a dork.
