Awards Make Me Smile!!!

The title really says it all!! When I receive awards, I truly have a smile on my face and feel all warm and fuzzy inside!! The last few weeks have been very chaotic, so to open up my email and see that I have an award completely makes my day, week, and really my month! I have received a few different ones lately and to make my life a little easier, I am going to post them all in this one post!

Who Loves You Baby?

This award is designed with one purpose in mind. Pass this on to other bloggers who have awarded you in the past.
Here's my list:
The Humane Award
Received from Laura's Reviews.
This award is to honor certain bloggers that are kindhearted individuals. They regularly take part in my blog and always leave the sweetest comments. If it wasn't for them, my site would just be an ordinary book review blog. Their blogs are also amazing and are tastefully done on a daily basis. I thank them and look forward to our growing friendship through the blog world.

Rule: Nominate 10 bloggers you feel deserve the Humane Award.
I'm not going to award all 10 simply because; however, I do want to mention a few that are very deserving of the award!
Super Comments Award

There is really not a description of this award to fill in here, but really it is pretty self explanatory! I'm passing this honor on to a few bloggers that I love their in-depth questions and comments. I appreciate that they take the time to share their "deep" thoughts and I appreciate their honesty (and wit!) in doing so!
Let's Be Friends Award
Received from Laura's Reviews
"I am now going to pass on this award to eight other friendly blogging type people, who comment, host challenges, and follow my blog. Congratulations, and display your award with pride! Please pass on the award to eight other bloggers and share the bloggy love!"
I'm going to change this one up a little bit and pass this one on to some of my more recent blogging finds (and I'm not doing the full eight)!! I have immediately fell in love with their blogs and encourage everyone to check them out!!
The Kreativ Blogger
Received from Sara Dobie's Blog

A few rules accompany the award:
1. Place the logo on the blog.
2. Link to the person who nominated the blog for this award.
3. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
4. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
5. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
6. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.
So here are seven (7) things you might find interesting about Tif Talks Books:
  1. I have lived in four different states: Michigan, Missouri, Montana, & Washington!
  2. I have my Master's degree in Counseling Psychology.
  3. I am now currently working in higher education as an educational counselor of sorts.
  4. I have two tattoos that I received during or after I was in high school (and I do NOT regret them!).
  5. I prefer action and horror films to dramas and chick flicks any day!!
  6. My children's names rhyme, but had no intention of doing this and didn't even realize it until it was too late!
  7. I am an only child and hated just about every minute of it!! Maybe this is why I am such a people person now!!
I have already passed this blog on to seven other blogs, so I am opting out of this one this time around!!

Beautiful Blog
Received from Bibliofreak

This one is a creative award that uses the acronym of BINGO when awarding the blogs.

B: Beautiful
I: Informative
N: Neighborly
G: Gorgeous
O: Outstanding

J.T. awarded this one for me under the Beautiful category and absolutely made my day!!! Thank you!! Now to pass it on to those I feel are deserving of it . . .
Now to see if I can notify everyone before they discover it on their own!!!! :) Who will beat me?!?!


  1. Thanks for the awards! You are such a sweetie!

    I think it's funny that the commenter award has a panda on it -- a notoriously quiet animal. :)

  2. Awesome! And well deserved! I can't thank you enough for passing on the love to me. :)

  3. Kristen . . . You totally crack me up!! When I read this I thought, why am I not surprised that you would know this?!?! :) I'm thinking you could write some awesome children's books about animals with all that you know!! :)

    J.T. . . . You are so welcome!!

    J. Kaye . . . Thank you and am always about passing on the love!! :)

  4. Congratulations on all of your well-deserved awards! Love your blog!

    And thank you so much for thinking of me! :)

  5. Ah, thanks Tif! So thoughtful to think of me. I'll be acknowledging this award in my monthly wrap up post.

  6. Congrats for all of your awards--and, thank you! That's very nice of you to pass an award on to me. :)

  7. Wow Tif, my head will be too big to fit through the doorway soon. I have often been accused of being too honest for my own good, but nobody ever commented on my wit before. And then to read on and find that I am beautiful, informative, neighbourly, gorgeous and outstanding... I may give up blogging and become a movie star!

    Thank you!

  8. Congratulations! and thank you so much for passing one of these on to me!

    TexasRed . . . Thank you and you are so welcome!! I just saw your post on your site, but just have not gotten around to commenting. As you can tell . . . I'm still trying to catch up from last week!! :)

  10. Congrats on all of the fantastic awards! Thank-you very much for passing not one, but two on to me! I am catching up with awards and should have them posted in a day or two . . .
