Forgive Me! Please?

Recently I have been given the Circle of Friends Award by two different people, Judi at Bentley Boutique and Amanda at Twice the Love...Half the Sleep. I just wanted to say thank you to them!
Judi has a wonderfully eclectic blog full of great ideas like bubble gum candy bouquets, great birthday party invitations, fun recycled crafts, and she's even created kitchen items like drinkware! Pretty fantastic! I love to visit her and find out what crafty thing she's doing now.
Amanda has a funny, charming, witty blog about her life with twins--a subject that is near and dear to my heart! Some of my favorite posts I've come across while toodling around her blog are The Art of the Friendly Wave, adorable photos of her munchkins, and cool recipe ideas. You'll always leave her blog with a smile.
Both of these women are amazing and I'm so glad to have "met" them and gotten to know them! To get a Circle of Friends badge from them is so flattering. I'm just thrilled they even know who I am and visit my blog, much less be considered for an award!
The rules of getting this award are that I need to choose 5 people to pass this on to. People who I feel are in my circle of friends. But you all know me. Like a true nature's child, I was born, born to be wild. I'm breaking the rules because I just can't do it! I try, and then I fail, dropping to the floor, shrieking and jiggling like a bowl of lime gelatin. I'm breaking the chain of the Circle of Friends Award! How awful, I know, but I just can't pick 5 people. My followers list has grown to over 30 beautiful, inspiring, fantastic people and that fact has catapulted my spirits over the moon! I consider you all friends and I would give this award to all of you if I could. You all deserve it. Click on any of the faces over there and you'll be taken to a blog that will make you laugh, make your heart smile, relax you, inspire you or transform you.
I'm so blessed to be in this space. I'm so blessed that you're in this space with me. So just know that you're all in my circle. And then forgive me for breaking the chain. Or I'll drop to the floor shrieking and jiggling like a bowl of lime gelatin.

I think I might have done the same thing if presented with that choice!

Congrats! I know! I'm the same way. I can't decide who to give them to without offending anyone...

You are too sweet Ms. Elle Bee! And you are a wonderful friend to so many it would be hard to pick out just one :)

I have faced that challenge on so many occasions and realize that at some point it will find it's way to everyone. So I struggle, with who do I pick?

I have even done, the if you want it, simply click on it and take it, but I find that no one does. Why?

Because these bloggers are amazing selfless, and don't feel deserving, however you know that there is someone somewhere just hoping that they will be that recipient of an award and then it just goes away.

So as you can see, I will join you on the floor like the lime jello, and just wanted to say Congratulations on receiving this award. I will definitely check out those sites you have listed.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Congrats on getting not one ... but two awards. How wonderful is that!

I just love the image of you rolling on the floor like a bowl of lime gelatin. :)

BTW ... I wrote a response about nutritional yeast on Reduce Footprints ... it's a little long so I won't answer your question here. Stop by if you get a minute:

I so thought I was following you but apparently not. I am now! Congrats on the award! I loved the pictures of the tomato pie. The only thing missing were the twins helping out. Being a twin, I know how much fun it would be with four more hands stirring and rolling and eating and getting into stuff! :)
