A FABULOUS AWARD......





ooooo, thank you so much, SUZY.....I so appreciate this cute and meaningful award and I thank you kindly for thinking of me.....

So to celebrate friendship and this award I have to answer a few questions.

Do you have the same friends since childhood? Oh, yes...I am so blessed to have 3 friends that I went to school with. Martha and I started 2nd grade together, Mary and I started high school together and Alice and I met when I was a Sophmore. Now, over 50 years since we graduated from high school, we are still Best Friends forever.....

What do you value most about your friends? I think the thing I value most and am surprised by the most is that they love me for all my faults and quirks....I love their honesty, funness, ability to laugh and cry when they need to....most of all their loyalty....Since we've known each other so long, they are all like family and we share a lot...a LOT of memories together that go all the way back to our childhood.

Are your friends your sounding boards? UMMM, not most of the time. I can go to any of them with problems but I would much rather go to them in laughter....usually MR. SweetNothings gets to hear all my belly-aching !! ;O(

What is your favorite thing to do with friends? OH, this is a NO BRAINER...THRIFTING AND EATING TOGETHER....we dearly LOVE going to a cool place for lunch and then hitting all the thrift shops.

In the name of perfect friendship I would love to pass this award to my sweet and dear friends:

Jeanne

STACEY

TARA

Even if you have this one, ladies, now you have TWO, cause I love ya !!

I LOVE ALL MY BLOGGING FRIENDS....

Stacey said...

Good Morning BJ! Thank you so much for the friendship award. I really did stop and pay attention to that award. I'vw been so blessed to have had the same bestest friend since 5th grade! Now we are 45 so that's a long time. We don't live in the same town anymore because hubby moved me to Oklahoma 20 years ago. But when we are together it's like we were never apart.

I am so loving my bloggy friends too. I don't think that a person who has never blogged could understand...but we do...I'm afraid I talk about all of you now as if I've spent part of the day with you. :) My husband gets it..Thank goodness!

Beverly said...

She is a beauty, BJ. And, you can always show off your grands to us. We love them, too.

Congratulations on your award, and congratulations to the new winners, too.

BJ

What a nice surprise to wake up to! Thank you! And your granddaughter, just gorgeous (must be like her grandmother!!) Thanks for sharing...your son looks too proud! How nice for all of you!

Judy said...

Even though my grandkids are 4 1/2 and 3 (respectively) I still brag w-a-a-ay too much but that's our right, isn't it? Lacey Jean is just gorgeous, and that dress....yummy! And yes, her back is so cute, I remember looking that skinny (a few years back - ha).

My daughter Shannon was a homecoming nominee when she was in high school....she didn't get it but her best friend did. The best friend eventually went on to win Mrs. America several years later!

tardevil said...

She's pretty & her dress is too! That shade of purple is A-W-E-SOME!

jeanne said...

Good morning BJ, we are a pair aren't we? Your granddaughter is truly beautiful. A perfect reflection of her beautiful grandma. What a lovely honor for her to be chosen in such a special way by her peers. And yes her dress is stunning and gorgeous on her. You go Lacy Jean.

Love...Jeanne

jeanne said...

I'm back. I just noticed you tagged me. Thank you BJ, you know I love you too. I'll post it tomorrow my friend.

Love...Jeanne

Connie W said...

Your granddaughter is so lovely...keep on bragging. ;D
Having friends from childhood is wonderful. I've lost touch with all of mine and it makes me envy you. Sounds really fun to get together with people you've know all through the years.

Texas makes the most beautiful grandmas in the world! And granddaughters, too. You must be so proud of your Lacy Jean; she's a real beauty.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Can't wait to visit you again!

Warmly, Ronda

Twice as Nice said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the dress. She is gorgeous. Did the freshman thru Senior attendants wear the same dress and the queen her own? That's the way they do it here.
If you made that dress in white wouldn't it make a beautiful bridal gown?
You deserve to be a bragging grandma, how could you not? And you have yourself a handsome son to boot.

Bo said...

You go MeeMaw...I'd be tooting my horn too if I had a knockout granddaughter like her...and I'll just bet she's as pretty on the inside as she is on the outside or else her classmates wouldn't have chosen her... Hugs, ;-) Bo

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh what a beautiful girl and what an honor to be chosen! You have every right to be a proud Grandma BJ:>)! You also deserve the wonderful friendship award! You are a dear friend to so many!

Big hugs! Sherry

Rue said...

Holy smokes Bj! Your grandaughter is gorgeous!! I just told Jeanne that she needs to tell her son to start shining his gun for all the boys that'll soon be knocking down the door for her grandaughter. Your son needs to start actually loading his! Forget shining it! LOL

love,
ruzzer

Vicki said...

BJ, You don't know me because I haven't jumped into the blog "writing" world, but I do read several most everyday and yours is one of them. Your grandaugher is beautiful and you wouldn't be right if you didn't brag! Now on to the friend part, I found something cute for one of my "bestest" friends the other day and it was so true, it read, "You'll always be my friend.....you know too much"! I'm sure that's the case with so many of our friends, but it's such a special bond with our girlfriends that God gives us, and hey, somebody has to know all the "good stuff" about us! Vicki

salmagundi said...

Your granddaughter is a LOOKER, and you have every right to brag. I like the idea of having the father; in the high school where I worked, they always had boys escort the young ladies.
