An Award.. A Tag and Stardom

After all of the attention
Tippy has gained since my last post..
She thinks she's a SuperStar now.
As if she wasn't Divalicious enough..
now she's just down right rotten.

A lil glimpse of Tippy when we first brought
her home.
See that lil white tip on her tail..
That's how she got her name..
Original huh.

She worked hard last week..
so she's taking it easy
relaxing in her bed.
What a Life!

An Award
Rhoda at

Has graciously honored me with this
wonderful award.

"An Attitude of Gratitude”

When life gives you lemons....
make lemonade!

So there are a few rules to this award:
*I'm a rule breaker*

1.Put the logo on your blog or post
*Did That*
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs that
show an attitude of gratitude.
*Did That Too*
3. Link to your nominees within your post.
*Did That*
4.Comment on their blogs to let them
know they've received this award.
*Working on That*
5.Share the love and link to this post
and the person who nominated
you for the award.
*Did That*

Those I am Nominating:
* With an Escape Clause*
Please accept this award without
having to nominate 10 others.
The reason I chose to do that is because..
Once I got an award and nominated someone
and they sent me a ugly reply back telling
me they didn't do awards blah blah and it
really hurt my feelings..
So I'm attaching an
Escape Clause to those I'm nominating.
Please accept this award without having to do
anything other than what you want to with it.
Pass it on if you like.. Or Keep it all to yourself..

  5. Bethany.. This is my first time using that Topsy Turvy thing.. I only got it because Ashley is such a sucker for infomericals lol. I have mine hidden far back on the property .. scared my neighbors will make fun of me.

    Gloria .. Shhhhh Girlfriend you are suppose to say it will magically happen overnight. Hugs.

    Robynn.. It really was the best.
    I got it from a little shop located just out side of the park we were at called The Village at Indian Springs. It had potatoes,egg whites, sweet pickles, purple onions, and mayonnaise. Must be a special Mayo .. cuz they wouldn't tell me what kind they used. I bought all they had .. which was 3 containers full .. lol I have made myself sick and gotten big bootyitus from eating so much of it.

    Marty .. You're Precious! I so loved seeing all your goodies yesterday. Hugs
