What is this you ask? Arte y Pico? Well, my friends, I am giddy to announce that I have managed to somehow snag another bloggy award. Yea!!! A special shout-out to Blogstalker for the nomination - thank you! So, what does it mean anyway??? And How can I get one??? All good questions. I'll do my best to explain!
The Literal Translation is Art Peak. And if you click here it also says that "it translates into a wonderful phrase in Mexico, “lo maximo.”... It will never find its counterpart in English, but if it HAD to, it would be something like, Wow. The Best Art. Over the top."
Now for the Rules...
1.) Choose 5 blogs that you consider deserving of this award based on creativity, design, interesting material & overall contribution to the blogger community.
2.) Post the name of the author & a link to his or her blog so everyone can view it.
3.) Each award winner has to show the award & put the name & link to the blog that has given him or her the award
4.) The award winner & presenter should post the link of the "Arte y pico" blog so everyone will know the origin of the award.
5.) Post these rules.
This was a tough one as I am "meeting" new bloggers ALL THE TIME, and there are definitely more than 5 that deserve this award. But alas, the rule is 5...so, I tried to select ones I haven't selected in the past. And the winners are...in no particular order...
Whetten Wonders I am a new follower of Rhonda's blog - but she Cracks Me Up!!! You've gotta check her out! She is soooooo funny and tells it just like it is. I love to read her blog and feel like I am right there while it is happening. She chronicles her life with her kids and hubby, like when she had a non-date with her 7 year-old at the mall and he "tries out" mattresses while she shops!!!
Siswick Construction Zone What's not to love about Carol??? Plus she lives across the ocean in the UK. So, of course I read ALL of her posts with the British accent. Carol is hilarious! I love when she shares her rants on motherhood to two little ones. She is clever and witty and she has a secret thing for Krispy Kremes!!! But it is probably her hint of sarcasm I love the best!
The Seasons of Our Life Amy & I "grew up together separately"...meaning our families were great friends and we grew up in the same area. However, she was older than I was, so I am just starting to get to know her. I love to read Amy's blog because not only does she crack me up, she is genuine! She LOVES being a mom, and is so DANG GOOD at it!!! I am secretly taking lessons from her!!!
Hapa Haole Five Ardis & I go waaaay back to college dorm days. We are kindred spirits! I love her love of life and her encouragement and support for all of those she loves! The best thing I LOVE about her BLOG (aside of her honesty) are her PICS!!! She has a great camera that she has been "dabbling" with. And her pics of her hapa haole (half-white ...lol) kids are sooooooooo adorable!!! Gotta see 'em!
The "Willeyes" And finally, last but not least, my neighbor Mel! Trust me - despite it's name, you will not get the "willies" from visiting her blog. Mel is a "sharer", which is why I love her blog! She shares good ideas, fun facts, great stories and quotes, and beautiful pics of her family adventures. Most of all you can tell that Mel loves to have a good time!
Congrats to the winners! I hope the rest of you will check out their blog and post a comment or two...y'know...Quench The Blog! Oh - and winners, don't forget to nominate 5 new winners!
