I measure up to a second Lemonade and a best blog!

In answer to Maki's question in the comment section of one of my entries...yes, I like bling! Sometimes it gets a bit much with several flying around at the same time though and with several of us reading some of the same blogs, well it gets a bit hard finding people to hand them out to. My blog got named in no fewer than 4 blogs this last week. *BLUSH* I am totally honored that you all thought of me.

This award came from Maki over at Posh Mom’s Diary . The rules are simple but I think Im going to have to tweak one of the steps for one of my choices. The rules are:
Rule 1 - Say a nice thing to a man in your life.
Rule 2 - List at least 6 ways you measure success in your life.
Rule 3 - Assign 5 other worthy blogs

Ok, rule #1 is easy. Im always telling hubby how much I appreciate everything he does and the way he puts up with me and my unpredictible emotions.

Rule #2: Well Im going to leave this one up to my readers. Why? Because I havent found a way in my life where I CAN measure success yet. In my eyes, I am and always have been a failure. I've had one failed marriage and havent managed to do anything worth while in my life. Shoot, I havent even finished that one blog area writing about it! The only thing I can even think of that I managed to do right was get away from that jerk and get the divorce done (with the ex dawdling and in prison the entire time).

For Rule #3 Im going to pick (in no particular order):

Chicagolady @ I Don’t Care What You Say Anymore, This Is My Life
Punkn @ Punkn’s Place
Marmite Toasty@ TWADDLE everyday rubbish
ToriZ @ Torizworld
Intenseguy @ Intense Guy

Modification on Rule #1 for those without a special man in their lives....Choose one person (man or woman) that means the world to you and say something nice to them.

All of them much more deserving of the award than I am.

Babyrocasmama @ Last Shreds of Sanity nominated me for the Lemonade award. This is the second time I've been awarded this. I cant tell you how thrilled I am because now I not only can make lemonade, but now I can also make sugar-free lemonade for those readers that are dieting or have diabetes! As I already issued it out the last time, Im going to just say that if you have just joined my readers in the last month or so AND have not gotten it already (well shoot...those that want it again, go ahead and grab it too)...please by all means swipe it. *points at all the n00bies, like MsHLP, Pooba and the like*

The final award I have I received from Punkn (link above) and received as an honorable mention in Intense Guy's (link above) blog. Thank you. I am extremely humbled. There are several that are very much deserving of this award (namely every blog Im following) so Im going to pick 5 and just hope that they'll get the ones that I missed. I mean we all pretty much read the same blogs anyhow.

The winners are:

Pamela @ The Dust Will Wait. She participates in a few of the memes out there so you never know what you'll find on her blog from day to day.

Mr&MsHLP @ Vanity Plates Creepiness in 8 Characters or Less . Some of those submissions are extremely funny. Funnier still are some of the comments that come up.

Dorky @ Dry As Toast. Whether dealing with a serious topic or just being her sweet, goofy self, her's is a must read.

Queenie Jeannie @ Jeannie’s Happy World. You want blog bling, she's probably issued it to you, you want to know what giveaways are going on...she's probably entered it (or is giving it away with that adorable assistant of hers, Bella).

Melissa @ The Scholastic Scribe. She's another you never know what you'll get. Definitely a recommended read.

Oh...and my ride:

Calories burned: 392.9

trip miles: 11.22

ave mph: 22.44

Getting away from your loser ex is a huge deal. There are a lot of women who don't leave. (My sister)

You also get on that bike everyday and you are going through all of these medical procedures to get what you want.

All those things in themselves are pretty amazing, but add them all up and they equal LADYSTYX!!!!

Congrats on all of your awards, definitely well deserved.

I agree with everything Becky said. And I have to add, your knowledge (however limited you think it is) of HTML and graphics is amazing! You always find the perfect backgrounds and designs to put on your blog (and banners when you did/had those).

Thank you for the award. I don't know if I can come up with six ways I measure success, but I'll definitely give it some thought.

Everyone you mentioned as recipients of these awards are truly deserving!

Congratulations to you Styxy on the awards! Well deserved.
And thank you for the award. I'm certain I don't deserve it, but I'll accept it anyway ;)
As for successes, Wifey and Chicago hit the nail on the head. I'll add your OCHA photo taking prowess lol.

Thank you LadyStyx! You definitely win the award for best plate submissions. They are priceless.

Intense Guy said...

Queenie Jeannie said...

Congratulations hun, and thank you very, very much for thinking of me!

I'm glad you liked Thomas' post. He came home for lunch and couldn't believe he had so many nice comments. I'm sure he'll want to do it again, lol!

Toriz said...

Congrats on your awards. :)

I haven't forgotten about my award, I'm still thinking of six ways I measure success in my life.
