Look at this bad boy!

Janet, (one of my all time favorite Janet's) awarded me with this little treasure....

It is the Arte y Pico award, originated by Arte y Pico and passed along to bloggers who inspire others with their creativity and their talents, also for contributing to the blogging world in whatever medium. When you receive this award it is considered a "special honor." Once you have received this award, you are to pass it on to 5 others.

I haven't received an award in a while which means I haven't given any awards in a while and I am happy and honored to do so today. I will pass it on lovingly, and according to the rules (for once):

1) Pick 5 blogs that you would like to award this honor to.
2) Each award has to have the name of the author and also a link to his or her blog to be visited by everyone.
3) Each award winner has to show the award and put the name and link to the blog that has given her or him the award itself.
4) Award-winner and the one who has given the prize have to show the link of "Arte y Pico" blog, so everyone will know the origin of this award.

I've never heard of this one before so I am excited to get to passin'...

Here goes:

I love this woman: Chelle! She is my all time biggest girl-crush ever. I have been reading her for years (since I started blogging) and every post of hers is heartwarming and fun. And those pictures are amazing in each and every post. Chelle, this one's for you sister. You have been an inspiration to me from the very beginning!

Margaret, I don't know how to express how I feel about you. You have become an amazing blog friend turned IRL friend and I still have never 'met' you in person. Love you lady.

Jennifer, you crack me up girl. Coming to your blog is like coming to a surprise party every day. You are always witty, humorous and true. And I love that 'bout ya. I miss you when you don't post and I kick myself when I miss a few.

Sarcastic Mom, I always say my favorite form of flattery is sarcasm...and I love yours. Even when you are hurting, you are smart and true and straight forward and I envy your honesty. I love coming to your blog every day and your photos are some of the best I've ever seen. Thank you for sharing your world with us.

Momo Fali (God I love that name) Momo just makes me giggle. Her name used to be Mom of Ali but it got lost in translation somewhere in the blog world and I think that's just hysterical. Momo blogs about life and I am honored to be let in. She is an amazing woman and mother and when I read her I always feel close to her words.

So there ya-go ladies. I did it again, I picked all ladies. Sorry, boys I read. You'll be next. I wish I could hand this out to every single person I read...

Take this award knowing I love you all and I thank you all for letting me into your lives through this crazy internet...


  1. Aw!!! Thank you so much! I'm honored to have you and I'm honored for this award!

  2. I saw it on Janet's site and it is beautiful. I wish I could read Spanish! Unfortunately I took a ridiculous amount of French classes.

  3. Well done. You are certainly deserving of such recognition.

  4. Congratulations, JJ!

  5. Aww, you deserve this award, ms lady! Congrats!

  6. JJ, thank you! Especially today when I'm feeling very down, this helps me.

    Thank you for this.

  7. Congratulations darlin'! You absolutely deserve it and you picked some wonderful recipients.

  8. Thank you my friend.

    When I get off my break, I promise I will pass the love onto others.

    I'm still not awash with things to say.

    Big hugs my friend, big hugs.

  9. Congratualtions!

    I'm Kellan, btw - nice to meet you. Hope to see you soon.
