Nice Matters!

Boy, am I blushing. And feeling like a kid with her hand caught in the cookie jar or something. Somehow, someway, I have been given the Nice Matters Award by 3 different people (Carmen @, Jayne @ and my wonderful Aunt Sandi @ Okay, guys, you can tell me the couldn't think of anybody else to give this to who hadn't already gotten it, right? Not to worry. That's cool. I'm still pretty darn happy about it. lol Seriously, though, it's a lovely award - both in thought and visually. Thank you so much Carmen, Jayne and Aunt Sandi.
For a little background, the Nice Matters Award is the idea of Genevieve at Bella-Enchanted. This award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration.Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world.

In light of that, I have a few people I would like to pass this award on to...

Tea @ because you are unfailingly pleasant and you have a beautiful blog that I so love to visit. (And are the best friend of that sweet obsession of mine that we call Elvis!).

Jodie @ Jodie is my daughter-in-law and she is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. I don't know that I've ever heard her say a truly harsh word about anybody. And that's pretty darn amazing when you know what all she's been through.

My new friend, Joan @ because she is nice to talk to. Isn't that everyone's goal in life? Or shouldn't it be? To be nice to talk to...I'd be hard pressed to think up a higher complement.

And my friend Gabbie @ You know you're nice, girl. You don't need this award to tell you that, now do you? lol But you're gettin' it anyway!

Truthfully, I would give this award to everyone on my favorite blog list because you wouldn't be on there if I didn't think you were nice. Duh. If I haven't listed your name individually, it's because I'm pretty sure you've already gotten this award. Folks like Sophie, Kat, Teresa, Allison, Jennifer, Christine, Heather, Cheryl, Des, Annie, Beverly...the list goes on and on and on. If, however, anybody that is on my list has not received it, consider yourself SERVED! I can't even begin to tell you how much fun I have conversing with you guys....I love reading how you handle your daily lives. It is inspiring. Thanks for letting me peek.
Okay, now that I've been granted this award, all bets are off. Or rather, all "nice" is off...get your rearends in gear and vote in my pole over there on the left of my blog if you haven't done so already. See the previous post for powerless threat against those who fail to vote. Oh, I'm that's you've called me nice, I can't very well threaten people, now can I? Fine. You don't have to vote. It's okay. I understand. No problem. Have a happy and really, really nice day! (And I do mean that!)


  1. HI!! Just stoppin by to say thanx for all of your comments on my blog, and your'e not a stalker! Didn't even know their were people out their reading my bullshit. Most of the time I just talk out my ass lol.

  2. Hi Kari,
    Thanks so much for this sweet award. I would pass it right back at you. Okay, I am so new at this. Do I pass this on and the next question is do I know enough people in the blogging world to pass it on to? Thanks so much. I've enjoy "talking" to you also.

  3. Wow, three times! That's great.

    Thanks for stopping by and for the birthday wishes!

  4. Well, how "nice"! Congratulations sweet friend! You so deserve this award.


  5. Thanks so much for visiting my blog the other day! Our base just went to privatized housing so it'll be interesting to see the changes that take place because of that - one positive is they are mowing and weeding our yards now :)

  6. I read just last night that Debby Reynolds (you remember "Tammy", right?) is said to be able to 'dominate wistfully'~ I figure if she can dominate wistfully, you can threaten nicely!

    I am so served! Thanks for adding me to your (ok, not all that exclusive, but do I care?) Nice-Matters list!
