You've Got It, Lady!

Happy 50th post to me!!! Frankly, I think I look as good as Barbie did when she turned fifty! This post, however, is not about me. It is about YOU!

I am so excited to give out this award to some very deserving ladies. But first, I want to talk and talk because that' what I love to do lay a little foundation for this award.

As I mentioned before, I love blog awards. Sure, they're a little quirky, some are silly, some are fabulous, some are cute, but they are guaranteed to brighten any girl's day when she receives a comment from a fellow blogger that she has been tagged.

I have loved every award that I have received from you all. I display them with pride right down there at the bottom of my page.

However, I wanted to establish a new award here in the blog world (because I can do that, dang it). And so the 'You've Got IT!' (and yes, you must make 'it' all caps) blog award was born!

So, what is this award all about?

It is a way of recognizing blogs that have something (IT) that you love. The thing that keeps you coming back for more. The thing that draws you in and makes you feel like this blogger is your soul sista. The little something that sets that blog apart from other blogs. Those posts that speak to your heart, make you laugh, make you cry, make you rush to the bottom of the post for the little comment box to tell them how it made you feel. That is what this award is about.

You all already know how I feel about keeping it real. Well, I think this award conveys that perfectly. What makes your favorite blog 'real?'

So without further ado, these are the ladies who are receiving the first round (because you all are doing the tagging from here on out) of my award:

Kim at 3 Peanuts: The story of Kate has touched my heart so much! I love to read about your beautiful family :)

Rasha at and this is what she said: We've only known each other a short time, but it was bloggy love at first sight!

Summer at b is for brown: You are without a doubt one of my favs. Your blog speaks right to my heart every time!

Kori at Blonde Episodes: You are an absolute sweetheart. Your comments brighten my day so much!

 dustjacket attic: Your photo shoot posts always put a smile on my face. Not to mention the sweet comments you leave on my blog :)

Mayra at life is BANANAS: Love your sassiness like whoa! Girl crush.

Pink Lace and Cupcakes: Cutie pa-tootie, you speak to my heart. Do we share a brain? Possibly.

Blair at Reasonably Swanky: Your confidence and wit are perfection! Love.

Adelaide at Sweet Sassy Southern and Classy: You were one of my first followers, and I absolutely adore you. You are my blogger BFF.

Sweet Tea and Biscuits: You have been so precious to me! Thank you again for featuring me on your blog!

So, what are the rules?

1. Post the award on your blog and tag it back to BeB or the person who tagged you.

2. Tag as many blogs as you want!
And most importantly....

3. Tell them what 'IT' is that you love about them, like I did :) (this is gonna make us all feel so warm and fuzzy inside and love each other even more!)

I adore you all! Hope you enjoyed this post, and I hope you enjoy giving and getting this award. I'm so excited to see this floating around the blogosphere!

As I mentioned in my other post, I want some of you ladies to guest post on my blog. Yay! Won't that be barrels of fun (did I just use the word barrel on my blog?)! Moving on....

Lots of lovin' to you all!
