The Royal Banana Awards. The Second

Glitter Text - http://www.glittertextlive.com

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, it’s Royal Banana time again! Aren’t you excited? Are you at the edge of your seats? No? Well hell. Sit back, grab your drinks and enjoy.

First I must thank the amazing Courtney at Judith Shakes Designs for designing the Royal Banana award for me, and for shaking up my page. Thanks honey.

Here are the 2nd group of winners of the Royal Banana Award for Blog Yumminess.
If you don’t know them yet, get on over and check them out!

Jamie at Blonde Mom Blog: Jamie is witty, intelligent and funny. She has a great perspective on life and motherhood and she’s been a wonderful bloggy friend. She and her blog are truly yummy!

Kellan at On The Upside: Kellan is a fellow Texan so that right there means she RAWKS! Her blog is inspiring and funny, she tells the most hysterical stories and as her blog name implies, she finds the upside in everything. She is inspirational yumminess.

Kim at Jogging in Circles: Kim is fairly new to blogging, but she has a real flair for it. Some of her posts make me laugh, a recent one made me cry, but she always makes me happy I stopped in to visit. She’s like the girl next door.

Mishi at Secret Agent Mama: Mishi is unique, she’s brilliant, she’s witty, her photographs are amazing. She is one of the most interesting and unique (yep, used it twice) blogs I have come across. She is just blogtastic fabulicious yumminess and I adore her.

Christine at Chicken Fried Therapy: First there’s the name. You had me at hello, LOL. Seriously, Christine is another rawkin’ Texan. She’s got some serious snark, a wonderful perspective and a wonderfully witty writing style. She’s a yummy blogalicious gem, and I would totally hang out with her in TRW.

Whiskey In My Sippy Cup: The name alone is yummy award deserving goodness. She’s Canadian, she’s funny as hell and she has phenomenal taste in movies. She’s someone that I’ve just recently discovered and I absolutely adore going to her page… she’s an addiction really.

Lotus at Sarcastic Mom: She’s the brilliant mind behind Weekly Winners, she’s truly one self proclaimed Sarcastic Bitch. I find her to be utterly fantastic and totally brave because she posts about her real life, the good, the bad and the ugly. She’s sarcastic yumminess at it’s best and I would absolutely hang out with her if I lived in Nashville.

JJ at Dirty Laundry: First, there’s the name and the blog header. I get the biggest grin out of a girl who uses underwear in her title and in her header. JJ lays her heart and soul out there in every single post and I think she’s amazing. She’s someone that I look forward to checking in on every single day. She’s funny, snarky, strong and someone with whom I would absolutely be friends in the real world. She’s avoiding housework yumminess!

Nap Warden: She is the photoshopping queen and I want to be talented like her someday. Nap’s blog is funny, heartfelt and warm. Visiting her blog is always a laugh. She posts embarassing pictures of herself along with stories that’ll make you cry and wish you’d been there too. She’s just a real woman posting about everyday and she makes you wish you lived nearer to her so you could be a part of her real world.

Melissa at Such Simple Pleasures: She’s really got it together. She’s funny, she’s smart and she knows it really is about the simple things in life. She’s crabby and not afraid to let you know it, she tells absolutely hysterical stories, sweet stories and everything in between. Melissa is just simple pleasures yumminess.

and last, but so certainly not least:

Don Mills Diva
: DMD is someone I just happened upon one day, her post made me cry and her blog header made me laugh. She is brilliant, funny, sweet and not afraid to post about slutty shoe loving. She’s one of them there Canadians, too (damn, that’s 2 in one award ceremony) They’re taking over folks. LOL. I adore reading her, and although she’s a new find, she’s a keeper.

Now, as this is an awards ceremony, I expect acceptance speeches and if you need an example, here are my two favorites: Amy’s at Memories and Musings of a Mommy or the fantastic Dixie Chick’s speech here

Congratulations and thanks for all the laughs y’all have given me.
