Blogging Award - Woo Hoo!

Last week I received a Premio Dardos blogging award from Michelle, from Busy Mom to 6.
The Premio Dardos award is for bloggers who distinguish themselves for showing cultural values, ethics, great and fun writing skills, as well as individual values, through their creative writing.The rules of the award:

1. To accept and show the distinct image
2. Show the link to the blog from which you were given the award
3. Choose 10 blogs to give the Premio Dardos Award to.
4. Let the nominees know about their award.

This is what Michelle said about me and I feel very honored by her words:

Sondra at Clean Frugal Living gets this award for her cleaning values & tips. I love her ideas & recipes, & also like that she lives in Idaho :) She is an extremely hard worker, is an outstanding primary teacher, and has the highest standards. This is one of the first blogs I started following.

Thanks again Michelle!!

Now, 10 blogs to send this award to:

1.Cherie at Bakow Babbles. I love Cherie's humor, creativity, family fun ideas, and great blogging tips. She is awesome!! She is great at leaving comments to others - I always see her comments when I visit blogs. She is very friendly and upbeat!

2. Scrappy Girl at Four Season Farms. Scrappy girl does the most amazing scrapbook pages which is such a motivation for me to get back to scrap booking. She has an amazing life with 3 sweet darling girls. She also is very fun and upbeat.

3. Kimmie at Pink Cookies with Sprinkles. I am new to Kimmies blog and I absolutely love her recipes and what a great Mom she is. She is inspiring me to cook healthier. I've really enjoyed visiting her blog.

4. Zoey at Jolley Famly: Zoey is my niece and we sure have fun blogging together. I love that we can keep up with each others family life in such a great way. She is an awesome Mother and I love her a bunch!

5. Ann Marie at Old Fashion Girl. Ann Marie is a wonderful woman. I quickly became drawn to her loving nature and her ability to foster friendships. She is very inspiring and her blogs leave me in AWE of gratitude, organization and the joys of living in a huge loving family.

6. Utah Mom of 7 at Prepared LDS Family. I am a new reader of this blog. She is fantastic example of being prepared and her preparation tools are VERY organized. I want to be like her when I grow up :-).. It's quite an inspiration to see what she has done.

7. Monica at Fabulessly Frugal. It's amazing the deals she finds - SEVERAL times a day... The way she uses coupons is amazing and she shares great tips in getting the full use out of coupons and sales. I love all the freebies she finds too!

8. Kerri at Preparedness Matters. I am always trying to prepare more and more. I love her tips and recipes. She has a bunch of Prophet quotes on Preparation. This is a great resource in being prepared.

9. Angela at Adventures in Self Reliance: Another great blog I ran across. Self Reliance is what I am striving for each day. I love the inspiration and the way she blogs them - not dry at all (which makes reading it fun-Ner).

10. Tammy at Tammy's Recipes: Recipes and more recipes!! A great spot to find recipes of all kinds. Her site is very organized and you can find anything with great pictures and direction. I can cook great things when I visit her site!

As you can see - I am addicted to Preparedness and recipes. Blogging is so much fun. Brady has been standing over me, bugging me for the computer. I left out one more person who also deserves this award. So, I am adding another award winner:

11. Sandra at In This Small House: Sandra is my creative guru... She seriously comes up with the best creative ideas. Plus, she sews and makes things I can only dream about. At the end of every post, she leaves her readers with an inspiring quote. I love her blog and when she gives me a comment on mine.

When you accept the award, you need to do the four instruction at the top of the blog. Have fun!

Monica said...

Thanks for the award Sondra! So cool that you picked us! I am trying to think of blogs to pass it on to. I will see what I can do. Thanks Again.

Ann Marie said...


Thank you for the award!! How exiting! That means alot to me, as does the comments you left on Facebook and my blog. I have been very busy this week.. But I have also had quite the pity-party too.. Your comments meant alot.

I'm glad you got the award! I like to visit your blog now as you have become a friend, but also for your cleaning tips.. I thought I was a WAY good cleaning gal.. and then I was humbled quickly by your blog. I have even shared some "helpful hints" you have given with friends, and I tell them if Sondra says so.. do it.. she's a (professional) cleaning lady.. :)
Funny huh. :) I hope your day is good.

Cherie said...

Sondra you are so sweet - Thanks so much. You have one of the best blogs ever! I wish I could just give every award right back to you!
You are such an inspiration with everything you do - I seriously want to be you when I grow up!!

Thanks again:D

What an informative, interesting, and fun blog! I hope you don't mind that I just dropped in.

We lived in Meridian,Idaho for 8 years. Loved it! My husband was transferred or we'd still be there!

I'll visit again.

MAN...Thank's for thinking of me. I have to say, I just love visiting you! Truly, you are one of the sweetest ladies I know. Funny how you can know these things without ever having met!

NOT TO MENTION...We are both worry warts!! LOVE IT!!

Have a great day Sondra!!!
