I've been blessed, not once, not twice, but thrice with the fabulous "Over the Top" award and I'm positively tickled pink! So, in honor of October being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I'm putting my own unique spin on the award:

Over The Top: Think Pink Edition
I'm giving this award to bloggers who go over-the-top with their selfless contributions to our world

My gratitude goes out to:
I am the Glue & Tattoos & Teething Rings
for bestowing the honor

The rules to this award are simple (and optional):

1. Please feel free to pass it on to others that you'd like to recognize for "making the world a better place"

2. Encourage your readers to visit the official Breast Cancer Awareness website with this link: http://www.nbcam.org/

Without further ado, the Over The Top: Think Pink Edition Award goes to:

Vashti @ Grains of Sand ~ She directs a non-profit organization in South Africa and writes beautifully and poignantly. Utterly inspiring and very real.

Joy @ This Too Shall Pass has an honesty, depth and sincerity that I relate to. Check out her post "I'm a Kiva Girl" that talks about the great organziation Kiva.org!

If it seems like there's a lot of tail-wagging going on, it's because Holly and Charisse of Life Laugh Latte have thrown us a bone in the form of a "Lafawnda Picked You: Great Blog Award". Bow-WOW! If you haven't already had the pleasure of meeting Holly & Charisse, "make a hot cup of coffee, pull up a chair, and hang out with your two new girlfriends!" They have insightful and humorous articles about friendship, family, faith, things they love and things that make them laugh. They do a weekly "reality show" that is sure to keep you howling!

I'm tossing the frisbee to:


  1. Thank You for this lovely award! I'm quit shocked as I'm new to blogging and didn't know about this tradition. I will pass the honour along to someone soon. I do love KIVA, so thank you for helping to spread the message, and as both my Mom and sister are breast cancer survivors I'm really fond of the mamography site myself. Thank you again for such a surprising honour.

  2. Thank you for this very sweet award. I will boldly go forth, in the pink tradition and share the news of Breast Cancer Awareness month!

    Love and hugs!

  3. Congratulations on your awards!
