Everything Else

It’s time to give out some Royal Bananas


Welcome, Welcome. Thank you for attending this evening’s first ever Royal Banana Awards Ceremony.
This beautiful award was designed by Miss Judith Shakespeare, and I am eternally grateful to her for it.
I am so excited to have my very own award to give out to my beloved blogger friends.
This award is for Blog Yumminess and there are some truly yummy blogs out there.
I am proud to introduce the winners of the “First EVAH” Royal Banana Award for Blog Yumminess:

The Fabulous Mrs. Fussypants because she always makes me smile, she occasionally makes me think, and she makes truly gawgeous jewelry.

Dixie Chick because, well because she’s southern, she’s funny as hell and her blog is truly yummy and addictive, like good dark chocolate.

The Egel Nest because Bradley is awesome, he banished the reindeer, his son is too cute for words and he always makes me smile.

Memories and Musings of A Mommy because I’m on her refrigerator :-), she frequently makes me laugh and visiting her page is like turning your face up to the sun; it’s bright, it’s warm and it makes you feel good.

Moosh In Indy because Casey is one of the funniest and snarkiest bloggers I read, chubby knees and golden curls and because I don’t feel a day is complete without visiting The Moosh.

Honeybell because she has a sexy as hell graphic in her title, she’s a witty bit of hysteria and she plays really well with others.

Milk Breath and Margaritas because she’s adorable, her blog name is yummy and makes me grin, she gives great advice and I think we’d be friends in the real world.

Bliss In Bloom because she goes on sweet dates with her son, her blog name is profound and she has a beautiful soul that shows in her page.

and last (for today) but certainly not least!
Judith Shakespeare because she made my gawgeous blog and award, she’s snarkier than hell, she has balls of steel and she has a way with words that makes me want to be her if I ever grow up.

Please feel free to pass these on to your own favorite yummy blogs and tune in again, because there will be more fun, more frolic, more secret engines, and most certainly more awards… because there are many, many more yummy blogs out there!

Please choose your award size and link it back if you would be so kind!
Lots of love y’all!
Thank you and now we return to our regularly scheduled insanity.

    In response to your needles comment:
    I can’t believe that Monkey had to have so much blood work in his early days. What a blessing that he appears to be a picture of health (sans the eye goop) now.

    Oh, and the picture with the family – Botox. Summer picture with furrowed brow – non-Botox

  12. That is the cutest little award badge thingy I’ve ever seen!
