I got an award!

I know, enough about me already, but I'm an only child. The whole world revolves around me. This is fact. 

One of my fave blogs, Crotchety Old Man Yells at Cars, has awarded me the famed Arte y Pico Award. The fact that the author of a great blog like that actually reads mine and comes back is a great compliment.

First off, let's get the business part out of the way.

1) You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award, creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes to the blogger community, no matter of 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-winning, 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-winning 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.
5) To show these rules.

I am going to start off with a blog that I like a lot. Original G.R.I.T.S. stole  my heart when she wrote me, "the only think Juicy in my house are the stains on the living room carpet". So, please stop by and give her some love!

Since I am so obviously sophisticated and cosmopolitan, my next recipient is Lisa from Sweden. She reads my blog all the way from Geneva!! Crazy, huh? (inside joke) Anyway, her blog, Mitt liv som asiL, is great. It helps to know Swedish, but she is kind enough to put up a lot of pictures to keep me entertained. (it's all about me, remember) I just looked on there today and saw a picture of my blog! Between you and me, this could be either REALLY good or REALLY bad. PANIC! What if she's making fun of  me? How embarrassing! If anyone knows Swedish, please help me out! And don't sugar coat it, people. I can take it. It's gonna take too long to sit down with a Swedish/English dictionary and go word for word. Besides, who the hell knows if A comes before Å...

Another blog that makes me laugh every day is E-mail Rubbish. Please check it out. Any blog that gives me a, "content warning" before I can see it gets my vote! Tommy is pretty damn funny. 

Another can't miss for me is Banana. These two are always good for a funny comment or a great blog entry. Check them out!

Now, I hate to get all serious on you, but I hope you will take the time to visit Our Story. It is a blog about something very close to my heart. As you can tell, I deal with all of my problems with humor, but there is nothing funny about serious food allergies to me. My four year old has a peanut allergy that could very well take his life at any time. It is important to me that people understand that peanut allergies are no joke and can happen with food items such as chili, plain M&M's, cookies without peanuts in them, pizza dough and the list goes on and on. My son's allergy is so bad that he could have a fatal reaction if another person ate a peanut butter sandwich and then touched him. 

This has gone on too long. I hope some of you are still with me!
