Sharing the Love

Well...it's Thursday...and like Debbie over at This is the Life...I have blog block. I usually do my Thursday Thirteen, but this week, it just seemed like too much effort. I work on those lists for an entire week. And it's Spring. And my brain hurts. So...today...I thought it was time to share the love instead of making a long list.

Have you noticed my cool blog bling on my right sidebar? Do you need some bling? The first one, my friend Jill over at One Wired Woman created. Yes, created! She was so excited when I tagged her for this meme...and she had never been tagged before...and she still came back and read my blog after reading that post. Have you ever tagged someone first? Then you need to grab this bling and put it on your blog. And before you know it, a "Jill" will be someone who hasn't been tagged before. And we can say it all started here. Or not.

The next one is the "Good Chat" award. This was given to me by my friend Rhea over at Word Tangle. Rhea and I are the queen of answering comments...asking questions...and having discussions about things that have absolutely nothing to do with the post in the comments section. Do you do this? Do you aspire to do this? Then grab yourself a good chat award and put it on your sidebar.


And then just yesterday, I was bestowed with yet another award by my friend Angie over at John Derre Mom. It's a blog stalkers favorite award...because it makes stalking a "not that kind of stalking" thing. Comprende? Or is it Comprendo? Whatever. So...if you find yourself in my blog stalking list...grab yourself an award. And feel free to share the love. (Let's sing together: "give it away...give it away...give it away now...")

Rhea just loves me that much...so I got yet another award. Because I am awesome. Of course. And if I read you...and comment...and forgot to add you to my stalking list...I think you need some "awesome" blog bling. And if you read me...and I don't know who you are...because you lurk...de-lurk...and grab yourself some bling...cause it's pretty awesome that you are one of my three readers.

So...who grabbed the most bling?


Wait, wait, wait...there's more. The next button is for a pink swap. Click on the picture (not this one...the one on the sidebar) and go sign up with Tangee at "A Sparkly Messy Life." She has the "rules" for this great pink, girly girly swapapalooza. You need to sign up by Friday (June 16th) to get in on the goodies.


And what is this? There's more?! Yes there is. There is more. Cause we are giving it away...giving it away...giving it away now. Come back on Sunday to see my first blog give away. It's gonna be big (cause I don't want to be a miser...not gonna keep it like the kaiser...) BIG! Really, really Big...

I'll have to check out this pink swap thingy. I don't see much pink these days, so I'm blinded by the color now on your site. lol

Love seeing all your bling and awards!

You're bucking convention with your non-Thursday thirteen post. I like it.

I'm trying to clean up for the surprise inlaws' visit...they're due in this afternoon. I need to be cleaning...but online blogging is better than coffee to wake me up. hehe

Kat said...

Good morning Rhea. I can see you are involved in some avoidance behavior...cause you ususally don't pop by until the evening :-) Go sign up for the girly swap. There are so many moms over there with only boys...should be lots of fun! I can't wait to spread the pink. So did you only grab one award (as you have the others!)? You need the pink button, too.

Heather said...

I love the puppy winking and pointing. And I love the Chili Peppers. AND I LOVE that you're having a giveaway. So much love in one post. Good stuff.

Rhea said...

LOVE the music this morning. During my first visit earlier I didn't have my volume turned on but now I do. You rock!

Thanks for bailing me out this morning with my oops typo. I really appreciate the head's up email.

SKELLER said...

It always feels like a party here, Kat :-)
Happy Thursday!!!

oh yeah, and I just wanna share your word verification with you: jtmymcvt
Why. WHY???? can't Blogger just use words?!? I've to figure out how to change that on my blog....

Nicole said...

Aha! I was here long enough to hear a new song start, so I suspected project playlist (which I do know about from myspace...thanks to my teenagers!) and so I scrolled down and saw it there at the bottom!

YAY! Learned a new thing! Thanks. ;)

Nicole said...

Ack...just saw that I lost my loooong first comment. Doggone it. Well, that's what I get for not entering the word in properly and then not checking...got excited about the music. sheesh! (is it monday or something???)

Angie said...

So much love for your readers! You're awesome! I tend to lurk, but I'm actually going to post this time. I'm giving serious consideration to joining the pink swap. Who can't use more bling? Thanks for sharing the love!

Kat said...

Heather--Yes, you do need the "Awesome" bling! I need to come and check out your blog with all your new bling since you got the love award from Angie, too. I'm pretty excited about the give away, too...

Rhea--Glad to come to the rescue. And the song is brilliant if I do say so myself. Love the Chili Peppers...

Susan--Awww...thanks! I want this to be a fun place...because it's where I go to escape :-) And yes, the word verification is a mess. I cannot tell you how many times I comment on blogs...check back later to see if there is a return comment (because I give good chat, ya know!)...only to see that my comment isn't there. If you find the solution, let me know!

Nicole--I see that you too were stymied by blogger verification. It's tempting to get rid of entirely...but spam is not my friend. I hope you grabbed some bling!

Angie--Welcome! I am so glad that I finally did something to bring you out of blurkdom. Now you just need to do a complete transformation to get the chatty bling :-)

One Wired Woman said...

Man~
You are the award queen!! I want a good chat award!! How do I get one? :) ~Jill

Kat said...

Jill--You need the good chat award and the "I love you this much" -- two bloggie blings to add to your site. Just put your cursor over the image on the sidebar -- the right click over it - and save it to your computer.

Debbie said...

Kat...as Skeller said it always feels like a party here! I have had some trouble with the word verification thing too, and I think I am going to take it off. I had a couple of blog spams prior to using it so I turned the option on. It's just a pain. Anyways, fun post...and I cannot wait to see your award. Oh and thanks for the shout out!!!

LisaWA said...

LOL you crack me up... give it away, give it away, give it away now! I didn’t know you liked the Red Hot Chili peppers! *Ü*

I came by to check on WW*Ü* I’m a bit late.... I need to keep reading to get to it...

We went on a field trip yesterday. Amtrak. We left Tacoma Washington and spent the day in Portland Oregon. It was a long day, but a lot of fun. 67 of us went. *Ü*

Ok, I’m off to find ww picture/s.

Happy Friday...Lisa

insane mama said...

I am so technologically challenged I'll have to ask my teenage monsters for some help on getting bling

One Wired Woman said...

So I just give myself the award? Well already then!! hee hee How do these things work? :) ~Jill

P.S. I've said it before, but I'll say it again... your blog makes me happy. :)

Kat said...

Jill--Awww..thanks! And yep, you just take your award :-) I'll be coming by to check out all your new bling!

Firefly mom said...

Ack - I can't get my bling loaded. And since I'm the most computer literate person in the family, I fear I may remain blingless.

Kat said...

FM--When you put images on your site...how do you get them? Are you using a link to the internet, or are they saved on your hard drive? If you get them from the internet, and save them, then you would take these the same way. Put your cursor over the image and right click. Then chose "save as." Type in a name...and decide where you want to save them. Then to load them, under layouts, pick add page element; then add picture. When you browse your computer, go to wherever you put it! Should be done. Let me know if you are still having trouble...and with which part and I'll see what I can do :-)

Firefly mom said...

Thanks Kat! You're my hero and I now have my bling ;D

Karen said...

Well .. I think I should maybe grab that good chat thingy as in my heroic attempts to keep atop of Rhea and Tiffany, I've been leaving commnts that have probably not got a lot to do with what you posted.

Karen said...

Geeee....HTL is dropping in the stats. Where's her childi ...I mean .. competitive spirit??

Tiffany seems to be wimping out as well...

Now if only Rhea WOULD STAY DOWN !!!
