I May Not Be the Hottest Mommy Blogger, Yet...But I've Won An Award! (Isn't It Beautiful?)

Henson’s Hell has given me an award! My very first here in the Blogosphere. And not just any award... it's the esteemed "Arte y Pico Award." My mama is gonna be so proud, I almost want to wake her up and shout about it. Actually, for as long as I've known her, my mother has stayed up much, much later than I do, even now that I'm all grown up and she's not in control of my bedtime. Brings back the good old days of elementary school when she would wake me up at one in the morning to see Andy Gibb or Abba on Don Kirschner's Rock Concert.

Back to the award at hand... this little beauty was designed by the “Arte y Pico Blog” as part of a tag initiative where you pass along the compliment to other bloggers.

I am truly honored by this award, and I'd like to steal a quote from Henson in accepting the kind honor he has bestowed upon me: "Yes, it has been a long struggle to win this achievement, and yes, I had to compromise every moral and value I held sacred just to scratch and claw my way to the winner's circle." I will use that one when I saunter on stage, stepping over Dooce in my gladiator heels, to accept my Golden Booty for Hottest Mommy Blogger, too.

Now, here are the rules and regulations, as well as my nominees for the next five deserving winners of the Arte y Pico Award:

1) Pick five (5) blogs that you consider deserve this award for their creativity, design, interesting material, and also for contributing to the blogging community, no matter what language.

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 (http://arteypico.blogspot.com/) Dios mio! Arte y Pico es un blog espanol! I took about six years of Spanish, starting in sixth grade, and don't really remember a word. Well, Gracias, Arte, for cooking this one up, and Juan and I are gonna vamos off a la biblioteca. Mas vale tarde que nunca!

Drum roll, please...though I wish I could tag everyone with this special honor and tasty trophy, I can only choose five. And here they are:

  • With more Technorati links and daily comments on her blog than there are stars in the sky, the lovely, gracious and talented.... Mariuca!
  • Spreading her midnight magic around the blogosphere, fueled by a rocket of hot coffee... Lady Java!
  • An entrepreneurial mom and grandmom looking for a ride from Connecticut to our Roxiticus Sunset Party on Friday night to accept her award in her throw me down shoes...Moomette!
  • Keeping the Blogosphere hot and spicy and doling out the Battle of the Blogs votes and linky love while keeping track of MightyBug and MiniBug...SpicyBug! Please drop by her blog and let her know where she left her hairbrush...
  • Last but not least, here's someone I bet most of you haven't visited...more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, helping out Dummies like me every day of the week, and hard at work on designing my new WordPress blog in between interesting posts on her JustAGirlintheWorld blog... Lisa Sabin-Wilson!

Please visit all the great blogs above, and see why they are truly at the top of their game.

P.S. -- Matt of MTMD has nominated my Roxiticus Best Blogs for this prestigious award, so I've got five more nominations for bloggers who play their cards right...

I'm glad you accepted the award with the dignity and grace you're so famous for. But what designer are you going to be wearing to the awards ceremony???? As we've learned from many past red carpet telecasts, the award always plays second fiddle to the "dress." And Lord knows you do not want to get on Joan River's bad side. (Which is ironic, because these days I don't think Joan even has a good side anymore. She's got to be at least 88% plastic by now.)

I feel so left out not getting nominated for anything. But at least I'm going to confidently whup webloafer's ass by a large margin in this blog battle! Our voting alliance is still running strong today, but what happens if I get a third tat?

Matthew S. Urdan said...

LMAO at your PS link! Way to get votes for hot mommy blogger!

Hey Henson, I'm just going to show up wearing River Shorts and a PFD to the awards cermony!

Cheers!

Spicy Bug said...

Roxy Sweetie, I have been so swamped with mundane things that I haven't had the time yet to accept this award. I might have to accept it via satellite. I promise, sometime over this weekend!

Diva said...

You get my vote girlfriend!

...and I hate to say you told me so, but after 113 days without BE giving me a freaking thumbnail picture, they give me one when I have a picture of Pam Anderson's whaletail at the top of my page!

AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH....

I don't dare ask for a new one!

Congratulations Roxy! Hmmm...I wonder if there's such an award for the most romantic blogsite? If there is, would you please nominate me? Enjoy summer. I haven't forgotten your meme. I'm just preoccupied with other stuff for now. But please do come visit my novel and cast your vote in my poll.
