I would like to thank all the little people......

Thanks to The Vinyl Village, I have won an award. Ain't she a beaut!!
I've never gotten an award of any form or fashion!!

I have been given the "Arte y Pico" award, which I think translates to "Wow! These are wonderful, good-looking people and they are fantastic bloggers!" Seriously, this award was created to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creativity and contribute to the blogging community. So I can't really figure out why I received it - but I'll play along.

Winners must:
1) Award five blogs that contribute to the blogging community through creativity, design, and interesting material, regardless of language.
2) Name each of the five blog authors and provide a link to his or her blog.
3) Award recipients must show the Arte y Pico Award image and the name of the award-giving blog author, as well as the award-giving blog author’s blog link.
4) Award recipients must provide a link to the Arte y Pico blog.
5) Award recipients must show these rules.

There are a lot of very good blogs out there. I am going to try to pass this award along to others that I read regularly and that have not already won this award.

  1. The Fat Cyclist - He introduced me to blogging. I stumbled across him quite by accident and he sucked me into his world so thoroughly that I went back and read several years worth of archives. He is a cyclist (road and mountain) that struggles with his weight. He is also very devoted to his family - his wife is fighting breast cancer that has metastasized.
  2. Corinne - She is a lot of fun and is absolutely stunning. She also has a great family that she regularly tells on!
  3. Desert Survivor - I love this blog because the desert calls to me!! And she is also very informative.
  4. The Keeper of All Things - She just a blender full of fun. Plus she was bitchin' just the other day about getting an award. So Happy Late Birthday - I just love ya'!
  5. Pleasing Procrastinator - One of her mottos in her sidebar is something that is very near and dear to my heart. "A clean house is a sign of a wasted life!" Amen, sistah!!
  6. OK so I'm cheating and doing an extra. So sue me! I just love that cool broad. She is so cool!! Plus she gives great advice on fashion, style, beauty products, etc.

There are a whole bunch of others that I love, love, love. Take a gander at the ones listed in my sidebar!! I just love all my new friends that I have met since I was introduced to this crazy world of blogs!!
