Wonderful weather and some more awards!

Pin It Now!

The weather last weekend in Northern California was unbelievable! After I took my walk through Los Gatos on Sunday, I went out to my patio with my laptop and just sat there and read blogs for a couple hours...boy does time fly when you are blog-hopping! It was in the low 80s and it was the perfect temperature to sit under the shade of a tree and just relax!

These awards just keep rolling in and if I don't keep up with them they get lost in all my emails so I hope I haven't missed any...

I got the Kreativ Blogger Award twice! First from the gals at Lookiloos, who by the way, I met last Saturday! I can finally say that I met other bloggers in person!!! Did I get any photos? ...NO! I didn't even think of it until after they left. They came to my apartment to take photos and interview me for their blog! It was so much fun because Julia and Desiree are so nice and I felt so at ease with them. I'll let you know when they post it on their blog which is so much more than a blog...it's so professional! Some of their content is published in the San Jose Mercury News!

I also got this award from Cheryl~Facinating Finds. Cheryl's BEAUTIFUL home was just featured on The Painted Cottage~Cottage of the Month site! Cheryl's blog is fairly new but so amazing! I don't think there have been many blogs that I've added to my favorites list after just reading their first post but I did with hers! I knew it was going to be amazing!

I'm supposed to list six things about me but I really am running out of things to say about myself because I've done so many of these over the last 2 years. If there is something you would like to know about me, please feel free to ask and I'll answer it in the comments section!

I want to thank Julia, Desiree and Cheryl for this award. As usual I'm not going to pass it on but I really do appreciate that you thought of me!
Marilyn ~ Our Victorian Cottage gave me this Marie Antoinette Blog Award! Thank you so much Marilyn! I really appreciate it!! You have to check out Marilyn's blog...her weather is complete opposite of what we are having here!

Hi Cindy, Congratulations on the awards! We're finally cold here! It was below 30 this morning!! It' finally feels like fall to me, of course my husband is complaining that it's too cold but I'm loving it!


Suzann @ Lavender and Roses said...

Cindy, perhaps we could crown you Queen of Blogland, yup - I think that's appropriate.
Nice weather? No, I'M having NICE weather. This morning is was 30 brisk degrees and the air was fresh and clean and filled with the scent of burning firewood.

My patio sitting days have come to an end for this year as it has fallen below freezing. How I envy you getting to sit outside in November! Sounds like it was a beautiful day!

It was still warm in the North Bay area over the weekend too. Pretty and warm. I noticed how blue the skies were. Now the nights are cooling off more. I enjoyed your house tour too. Such beautiful homes.

I would love to know about any wonderful places that I shouldn't miss when I visit San Jose area. Laurie

Michele said...

Congratulations on winning so many awards! That really must feel wonderful, and I hope that you're proud of yourself because you've been getting a lot of recognition for your awesome blog. You deserve the kuddos so soak it all in!!

Yes, I agree the weather here has been awesome! Today, I left San Jose wearing shorts and a short sleeve top and flip flops because it was so nice out. BUT, stupid me didn't even think about the fact that I was going up to Millbrae, and leaving Millbrae at 6PM means I'm not getting quite the same weather as I had leaving San Jose earlier!! LOL!! I was freezing because I didn't even bring a jacket with me! Oh well, live and learn.

I wanted to share with you that I just started a blog of my own, if you're interested stop by. I only have two posts up so far, and it's nowhere close to how gorgeous and creative yours is, but it's a start. I'd love for you to check it out when you get a moment. Just click here.

Have a great Wednesday, and congrats again on all the awards and for being interviewed to be featured on another blog! That's so exciting!!

Michele said...

Sorry for the double post, but I think I messed up trying to give you the link to my blog. I'm trying to learn how to do hyperlinks, so forgive my fumbling, LOL!! I'm not sure if your blog allows me to leave HTML in the comments because I got a weird message. I'll just email the address to you.
