Congratulations, Dawn!!

Since you introduced me to *Following*, and you were the first one *I* followed, I sure would love it if you would be my first follower.

You are an inspiration. Said by a 66 year old great-grandmother, in the process of letting go, along with the 69 year old great-grandfather in our family, of the reins in our family.

I love and respect you.

Congrats Dawn! I personally think you should have won 1st place in all categories but I guess you have to share the spotlight sometimes LOL. I just looked at pics from your trip and WOW it looks like you had an amazing time. Hope you have as much fun in Florida as you did Cali. You are an inspiration to many ~ thanks for the wonderful blog!

I've been reading since the infamous 'Pokemon cards' and love laughing with you. You even inspired me to start my own blog. You're an inspiration! Thanks for all you do.

Was there ever any doubt that you were loved? You *are* mom to six fantabulous kids who provide you with ample material for your blog! J/K You are loved- just as long as you keep the funny stuff comin'! LOL! God bless, and CONGRATS!

Michelle said...

Way cool, Dawn! And I love how you get to toss the going to Disney in there, too. We'll be looking for you leading the parade... assuming we make it OUT of the hotel pool and into Disney one of the days we're down there :)

So what were the vote totals? Not that I'm a numbers nerd or anything? Congrats again!

What do you get? What do you get?

Erin said...

Congratulations! Couldn't believe you got 2nd for Best Humor. I mean who is funnier then Dawn, who is with me on that one? Then I surfed over to Cake Wrecks and saw she won first for Best Humor, and, well, now I see. Not saying she is funnier then you, but if anyone other then you had to win at least it was her. So, have I dug myself into a deep enough hole? Congrats! And enjoy Disney World. Man, I can barely pack for 4 (and that does not include Hubby, he is on his own poor guy.)

Jen Cato said...

Welcome home sweetie and congrats on the Blogger Awards!! Was there ever any doubt? *giggle* Yay! Go Dawn, Go Dawn! *cheers*

Dawn - Congratulations!!!
I'm so glad you won best parenting blog! You deserve it. And look at you in the other 3 categories. I do have you to thank for making me a Cake Wrecks follower.

Have fun in Disney (is that for real, or did a whole bunch of people not recognize the sarcasm?)

Donna said...

Congratulations, Dawn!!!! You deserve it. I still remember when I started reading your blog - the installment about e-baying the trading cards! I think of it everytime my 6 year old son asks-uh begs - me to buy him something which is every time we go into any store. Here's too another wonderful year for you!

Congrats I love your blog. I'm about to start a blog about my life as a mom of 2 kids and a wife and scrapbooking. I also sell jewelry to and a lot of the jewelry I've sold to them have a lot of stories behind them so I will talk about those too. Keep up the good work!

THANX DAWN!! You were just a tad too funny when you wrote about "thanking the academy"..That did it for carefully concocted Black Russian went from mouth ...thru NOSE..onto table!It actually took me a few minutes to stop laughing gleefully.
SO..I see you visited the famous Chinese Theatre..and even the Hollywood Sign. But where are the photos of YOU...standing atop the letter "H"..while your pals were down below yelling "JUMP JUMP"..
Oh Wait..That would have been ME!(and a few of my former college buddies!!.."Bless "Em")
As usual, you wrote devastatingly ONLY comment would be that you were actually expected to USE those neatly rolled towels..I even bet you cleaned up the place..God Forbid the maid staff might have thought their new FAMOUS AUTHOR visitor was a Miss Piggy!!
Glad you had such a great time..I even went out and purchased some
SUAVE products (I suppose I can wash my toupee!) But..since they were so nice to you, it's the least WE can all do to buy a few products..Maybe they'll finance another suitable trip for you next year!!
I still have NOT looked at the other BLOG sites of your "competition"..I would feel DIRTY and DISLOYAL!
Glad your'e back!!

Hi Dawn, you said that the new blog layout WAS your fridge, so now I'm intrigued... just how many refrigerators does your family go through? I thought the side-by-side fridge in your "Clay Steals a Cookie" video was your new one? Or did the web designer just rearrange it to be more functional as a web page? With everything else I have on my mind you'd think I wouldn't have time to worry about what kind of fridge you have, but apparently not! Been wondering since the SSO, lol!
