Busy, Busy, Busy

This has been such a busy week for me that I haven't had much time to catch up with my favorite blogs.  I've been reading them in Google Reader (which I love because you can scroll through without clicking), but I haven't figured out how to comment in that format.  If anyone knows, please share!

I've been working on the cocktail party submissions (which I love, keep them coming!), but I'm also fooling around with a new look for This Stop Willoughby.  I hope to create something that I love and that will be visually interesting to anyone who drops in on my little corner of cyberspace.  I need to get back to my Friday Night Drink Demos, too.  Have you missed them?  I know I have!

I also got some awards this week from old friends and new friends.  The first one, The Friends Award,  I received from both Amy at The House Of Seven Tails and kyslp at Stir-Fry Awesomeness.  Thank you so much to both of you! 

The rules to this award are: 

*This award is bestowed on to blogs that are exceedingly charming.

*These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends.

*They are not interested in self-aggrandizement.

*Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.  *Please give more attention to these writers.

*Deliver this award to other bloggers who must choose others to pass it on to and include this *Cleverly-written* text into the body of their award.

It isn't specified how many bloggers I am supposed to pass this award along to, but I think four sounds about right.  Here are four special bloggers (and new friends) I would like to give it to:
  1. Holly and Charisse at Life Laugh Latte
  2. Rook No. 17
  3. Holly at 504 Main
  4. Liz at 21st Century Housewife
Please click the links and visit these wonderful blogs.  You'll like them, I promise!

From Life Laugh Latte I received the Over The Top Award.  The rule for this award is that you must answer the questions provided with one word answers.  Being brief is not my strongest attribute, but I'll give it a go!  I added the bullet points because I know how much Holly and Charisse like them!
