Awardapalooza on Steroids

Hi everyone! I've been seriously hoarding awards lately. In a bad way. So I want to heartily thank the wonderful people who've given me awards, and send them right back out at people!

I got this one from the lovely Emily Ann Benedict.

And this one from Stina!

Tricia O'Brien so sweetly bestowed this award upon me.

Candyland gave me this award: the Baldfaced liar award

Susan Fields gave me the blogger Journey Support award!

I got this award from a bunch of lovely bloggers. You guys are awesome! A big hug to:
Peggy Shumway
Sharon Mayhew
Erica Mitchell-Spickard
Renae Mercado
Stephanie Thornton

I received this lovely award from Melissa at Through the Looking Glass.

And I just got this one from Stina Lindenblatt (she let me choose this one, like a kid in a candy store!) And it's my second one from Stina! You are too sweet!

I am so overwhelmed by the support from you guys. Thank you so, so much! And in return, I'd like to give an award out to many people. I usually give a single award to five people, and since I received, um, a lot of awards, that 5 x A LOT. Which equals, uh, A LOT. So hold on to your seats people. Take a potty break if you need. I hereby bequeath one award to each of the following people.

To each of the lovely bloggers who gave me an award above--Stina, Emily, Tricia, Candyland, Susan, Melissa, Erin, Peggy, Sajida, Sharon, Erica, Renae, Stephanie, and Bec! some great blogging friends:
Alesa Warcan
Maria Zannini
Yvonne Osborne
Anne (PiedmontWriter)
Karen G
J. M. Neeb
Jamie Grey
Nicole Murray
E. Arroyo
Joanne DeMaio
Holly Ruggiero/Southpaw
Writing Nut
Olley Mae
Julie Musil
L. Diane Wolf
Terri Tiffany
Talei Loto
Carol Kilgore
Rachna Chhabria
Heather McCorkle
Jess of All Trades
Sherrie Peterson
Bethany Elizabeth
Corey Schwartz
Karen Lange
Ed Pillola
Roland Yeomans
Mohammed Mughal
Theresa Milstein

My fingers hurt!

Each and every one of your blogs has made me smile, for a unique reason, and I have truly enjoyed your company on this blogging journey.

Please pick one award of your choice from the above awards, which you haven't gotten before (thanks Stina for the idea!) and pass on the love. And the steroids. Just kidding.

Congrats to you and to everyone! It's great receiving awards isn't it? I've hoarded for months. I don't know where to start!

Alesa Warcan said...

You're well loved, and with good cause. : j Rock on Lydia.

Erinn said...

That's a GREAT idea! Thank you!

JustineDell said...

I'll bet your fingers hurt! Award posts are long! That's why I've been hoarding for months! I'll regret it someday. ;-)

Congrats on your awards!


Piedmont Writer said...

Thank you Lydia. Congratulations on all your bling, you so deserve it, and to the other recipients as well. I'm in great company.

Vicki Rocho said... passed them all on. KUDOS! That's the part I usually cop out and say, "you want it? take it" cuz the idea of typing and linking 47 names is just too much. I thought you were heading that way but noooooo you rose to the challenge. (I'm such a slacker...)

Congrats to everyone!

Joanne said...

Wow, there's a whole latte awards, and fun, going on here! Congrats to you and to all the fellow nominees :)

Nicole Murray said...

A wonderful Blogger Pay it Forward moment. Thank you (my first) and congrats on all your varied awards. I have not been here long but its not hard to see that you deserve them all. ;-D

Liza said...

Congratulations on all those awards and thank you Lydia for including me in such wonderful company.

Jayne said...

They add up don't they? I need to unload some maybe tomorrow. Thank you!!! Have a fantastic day:)

DL Hammons said...

A Blog Award buffett...I like it! Just take what you like. :)

Congrats to you for all your many awards and to your recipients.

Erica Mitchell-Spickard said...

Awe, your so sweet and each award so well deserved. You. Are. Awesome. OH and I think I might be emailing you soon with a medical question. Half the time my email winds up in the junk box ugh, but so you know just incase I figure out the specifics on my question my email is erica(at) YAY! I get to just choose? Which one is the most shiny? Going back to look :)
Thanks for posting all these, now let your fingers recover ;)

Jaydee Morgan said...

Congrats on all those awards, you are very well deserving! I can't believe you listed AND linked so many, that must have taken forever, unless you know a faster way to do it than my way. And thank you for my award! It's greatly appreciated. I love awards :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Thanks, Lydia. I really like the buffet style of choosing an award. Now I have to make a decision - LOL.

Maria Zannini said...

Thank you! I feel I should be wearing a lopsided tiara and giving that little Queen Elizabeth wave.


Can you imagine all of us doing that at the same time. There's a YouTube video in this some where.

Aubrie said...

Thank you so much for the award!I bet your fingers hurt after all that!

Solvang Sherrie said...

Thanks, Lydia! I need to catch up on handing mine out as well :)

storyqueen said...

Thank you! They are all so cute! Which one to choose.....


Roland D. Yeomans said...

I am impressed. First, I am like my character, Sam McCord, high ideals/low tech. In other words, I do not know how to link as you do.

Hangs head in cyber-shame.

And thanks for the award. Congratulations on being awarded so many! A hospital just called, needing blood. There goes my ten minute break.

The game's afoot, Watson!

Karen Lange said...

Congrats to you, Lydia, and to the new winners too!

Melissa said...

WOW congrats on all of your awards! That is super exciting and you totally deserve every single one! Wow. Thanks for passing them a long. I pick the butterfly one (SO see why you did its gorgeous).

Stephanie Thornton said...

That's a great way to handle blog awards when you're inundated. Congrats on all the bling!

Well, all I know for sure is I probaly shouldn't choose the blogger mama one. LOL
Have an awesome day!

Peggy Shumway said...

Wow, that's a lot of awards. Thanks so much for the award back. You are a sweetheart! And you made my day.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Lydia--You are (seriously) making a lot of blog friends to be given that many awards...I'm totally impressed that you took the time to pass them along to so many people with the links...I'll bet you spent a long long long time on this post. Thank you for being so thoughtful! (and thanks for honoring me with an award...) I'm choosing the creative blogger award, because I love the activity that goes with it...Thank you and let your fingers have a rest this evening. :)

Bec said...

Thanks so much for the award Lydia! Their is so much to choose from :)

Yvonne Osborne said...

Thanks for including me. I'm awed to be in such company and congratulations to you for all the acknowledgment you have received. A whole lot going on here!! I'm wavering between the versatile blogger (the one from Tricia) and the sunshine award (I love those boots!) and comments are so important to everyone. Oh! Won't someone help me choose???

Krispy said...

Thanks! You're so sweet! Now, which one to choose. I'm so indecisive!!!

WritingNut said...

Congratulations Lydia - you deserve all of these awards! And thank you so much for thinking of me :)

I'm with Krispy though, I don't know which one to choose!

Gail said...

Congrats on all the awards! I have to admit that I've wanted to send out awards but don't have a cyber clue on how to do it. Would you give me the same tutorial you offered Roland? Please???
