look! more flowers!

OK, let's pass this award to five bloggers, before the weekend is over. (I know it's 2 AM, so technically the weekend is over, but goddammit, today isn't over until I go to sleep!)

So here it is in all of its glory: THE SUNSHINE AWARD. BEHOLD.

The Sunshine Blog Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blog world. The rules for accepting the award are:

1. Put the logo on your blog or within your post
2. Pass the award to 5 bloggers
3. Link the nominees within your post
4. Let them know they received this award by commenting on their blog
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received this award
6. Share 5 things about yourself

So! First things first: my five. I tried to adhere pretty hard and fast to the concept of recognizing people for their positive attitude and their creativity, so I hope this award is meaningful for those of you who I've linked. And the award goes to:
  1. Heather of Boyfriend Challenged. Because she's hilarious and because this post made me want to stand up and cheer. It's basically the "We Are The Champions" of single ladies.
  2. Ally of Fourth-Grade Nothing. Because I always look forward to her posts. There's a real satisfaction that comes from learning way more than you needed to know about Strawberry Shortcake.
  3. Ethony of Wicca, Tarot, Photography, Books and My Life. Because I've just been to her online photo gallery and it makes me want to try harder to create beautiful things.
  4. Amber of Nostomanic. Because her blog is sheer, blinding brilliance. If you don't believe me, just go read her current post about the untapped potential of The Goblin King's bulge. Then we can talk.
  5. Ashley of You're The Charlie Browniest. Because you know that one friend you have who can turn the most mundane thing into a hilarious anecdote and/or rant? She's the internet version of that.
Later today I'll be posting five things about myself. For now, I'll just say that if you haven't checked out any of these fine foxy ladies yet, then go right now or I don't know if we can be blog friends anymore. I'm serious. OK, I'm only a little bit serious. 


  1. Oh thank you so much Melissa :)

  2. Congrats, Melissa!!!

    And yay, new blogs to check out! ^_^

  3. Yay well done lady! I'll be checking them out as soon as i can manage!

    Did you get rid of Disqus btw? It's doing the standard 'Post Comment' thing over here!

  4. @Ethony - Why, you're welcome!

    @Angela - Thanks :)

    @Michelle - It's no glitch -- I did get rid of Disqus. Nothing against it, I just realized I actually prefer the Blogger commenting platform.

  5. Thank you so much for the award. I definitely appreciate it.

  6. Congrats to all mentioned! Super great job passing on the blogging sunshine torch sista!

  7. @Amber - You're totally welcome! And totally awesome.

    @Nikki - :D

  8. So uh...I'm incredibly late, but THANK YOU!! I love how you describe my blog, because that is seriously how I describe my life haha. I somehow managed to miss the comment on my blog when you let me know about this, so I will make sure to have my 5 things up soon :)

    Also, you definitely deserved this award! I always love reading your blog.
