Another Milestone for Baby: The Versatile Award!

Oh boy, how time flies in the WordPress neighborhood! It seemed like yesterday Simply Charming received the Liebster blog award by Sunny Side Up neighbor Lori Franks and MJ Monaghan, commemorating the joys of baby’s first step!

Neighbors Amira from  halfwaybetweenthegutter, visited and showered Simply Charming with a very large Christmas gift. Of course, baby my very active toddler could not wait until the 25th and tore into the package! I couldn’t prevent it for you see I was busy chatting with my neighbors! Anyway, you want to see the gift? Of course you do and here it is:


As usual, Charming wants to run off and play but this mama is making sure Charming follows all the rules and regulations so go on Charming, it’s rude to keep visitors waiting.

Aww, alright Mama. Well, Rule # 1 is what my Mama taught me from day one.

THANK YOU MISS AMIRA and halfway between the gutter! 

You should visit them over at   ,halfwaybetweenthegutter

Now, Rule #2 is really cool since I get to tell you seven random things about ME!

  1. You already know how charming and sweet I am but do you know I sneak peek into the candy jar over there on the counter and eat   touch as many Almond Joy bars before Mama comes around looking for me? (You zip your lip too!)
  2. I love wearing my foot pajama during the winter. Mama won’t let me wear it to Wal-Mart even though I see tons of adults wearing their pajamas to the store!?!
  3. This is top-secret so don’t tell Mama. On occasions, when she’s asleep, I come out to play and chit-chat with the my blog pals. Hey, at least I’m helping Mama find pals and interesting reading stuff. If you tell, I swear . . .
  4. I love being a razzle-dazzle (i got this word from my friend Elena!) person and hear loud applause! Lots of applause!! Mama says sometimes I’m too much drama.  Frankly, Mama  my dear, I don’t give a damn. . . . Oh, Rhett!  Mama! Please, don’t go! You can’t leave me! Please! . . .   ( I love the movie, Gone with the Wind!!!)

  5. My favorite subject in school is eating lunch (especially when they serve peach cobbler! Yum!!) and recess.
  6. If I had one wish, I would wish a permanent loving home for every foster kid in America. Actually, since it’s only one wish, I change that to all orphans worldwide to find a permanent loving home.
  7. My favorite color is anything glittery and sparkly!!
Mama says it’s time for me to go to bed so *yawn, thank you Miss Amira and blog pals. I’ll be back to play tomorrow. Mama is going to finish the rest of the rules for me.
Here is Rule #3: 
All right, this was back killing work with my slow internet service but worth the work. In no particular order except for Lori Franks, (now it’s my turn to bless you!) these are my fifteen nominee neighbors for the Versatile Award. I enjoy many of their stories, photos, poems and in general their conversations as well. Thank you neighbors for keeping your porch light on and your hospitality.
I love to share funny stories about my life, because life is very funny.
My hope for this blog is that you will find encouragement to live a life fully and completely devoted to Him while also juggling life.
I was found on the side of a busy street.
I’m an unpublished author with a dream of publishing fiction novels.
Welcome to the blog home of Eleanor Tomczyk . . . the musings of an engagingly funny, chunky African-American, baby-boomer radical, ex-tongues-speaking Evangelical, born-again liberal, storyteller.
I love to explore topics related to health, happiness, spirituality, and success,so you can probably guess how I spend most of my time.
Leslie Hobson is a writer and farmer living in King, Ontario.
Photography Hobbyist, I started  February of 2008, and still shooting up to date.
The very main reason I put up a blog is because I want to share my personal experiences, thoughts, opinions, advises, tips, express my feelings, my outlook in life and to keep memorable moments that happened in my life in the past.
I created this blog because I am on the journey of truly living my passion.
I see the colours, the shapes, the scenery, the animals and flowers and I want to capture that moment
This blog is all about the things I enjoy: food, places, cultures, and most especially fashion. 
I’m a fiction writer.

I love capturing every moment with my camera and sharing it with the rest of the world.
I write dreams and talk about inspirations.
Final and last Rule #4:

The fifteen nominees carry on the same tradition completing rules #1-4, and most important,

POST this badge on your blog.

Now you can retire or better yet,

do something crazy like write into the wee hours of the morning when you know the alarm is going to scream at 5:30 am.

Lots of love,

      Thank you, thank you . . .hehe, kids these days, never know what will come out of their mouths. It does get me when I see adults in their jammies walking up and down the store and sometimes they wear their house slippers! What the hey??

    Congratulations on your award! Much deserved. I enjoyed all the interesting facts – especially the wish for homes for all the foster kids and orphans, and the intro to many other blogs I’m not familiar with.


    • Sunshine says:

      Why thanks Bongo. I ran over to your place with my award gift but noticed someone already gave you the gift and I was happy you received it but I did walk home with a sad face. 😦
      OHHHH, I’m just kidding Bongo! 🙂 I was really happy! 🙂
