"I'm Thankful For You" Blogger Award!

Deb, over at Frugal Living and Having Fun has nominated me for TWO blogger awards recently. I'm am going to post about this one first, and the other one in the near future (I'm a little behind!).

First of all, thank you so much to Deb, for nominating me for this amazing award! It really means a lot to me. This isn't like all the other awards. where you are recognized for having a fantastic blog. This one holds a lot of personal value in that it is awarded to those bloggers who we are inter-connected with, who have helped our blog become what it is today. We have helped each other, struggled through the beginnings of starting up the blogs together, experienced the same ups and downs, and continued to encourage each other along the way. Deb, you are awesome! Thank YOU for everything you have done. You are such a wonderful person and blogger, always willing to help other people out.

So, how these blogging awards work, is that I receive the award and then pass it on to the bloggers who I would like to nominate. So on to some very special bloggers in my life...

In the words of Deb, who created this award, "I would like to award the following bloggers this
*I'm Thankful For You, Helpful Blogger Award* to let them know how thankful I am for their friendship, love, and support in helping me learn what I know today, and for making a difference in the success of Frugal Fun and Fortune!"

I couldn't be where I am now, in just 3 short months, if it weren't for the following incredible bloggers:

Deb @ Frugal Living and Having Fun (For being one of the most encouraging, kind, and helpful bloggers ever! And thanks again for giving me this award!)

Crystal @ Money Saving Mom (who inspired me to start this blog with her very practical and helpful "Blogging For Profit" series)

Michelle @ I Heart Publix/Saving Money (Who is honestly the nicest blogger I have ever met in all the hundreds of bloggers I've contacted or dealt with. She has a huge amount of readers, and still finds a way to make time for each and every one of them. You're awesome! Thank you for answering all of my questions, and always being so understanding, patient, and kind.)

Amanda @ A Few Short Cuts (Who is so friendly and encouraging. I love being on the blogging journey with you!)

Kaley @ Cha-Ching On A Shoe String (Who highlighted my blog as one of the Cha-Ching Highlights. I very much appreciate your thoughtfulness in directing your readers to other great blogs out there! Your blog is one of my very favorites.)

Jaycie @ Coupon Geek (Who posted my Publix deals as part of your grocery store round-up, bringing more readers to my blog.)

Tracie @ KC Penny Pinchin' Mama (For partnering with me on the Hy-Vee deals)

Sarah @ Fiddledeedee (For partnering with me on the Winn Dixie deals, and adding me to your "fab bloggers" list. You're so kind.)

Lynn @ Maven of Savin' (For partnering with me on the Rite Aid deals)

Shelly @ Coupon Teacher (For partnering with me on the Harris Teeter deals)

Kristin @ Couponing To Disney (For doing everything you do every day on your blog. You're super woman. I can't even keep up with all the deals you post, but you always post the most unique and helpful posts. I love sending my readers over to you.)

And many many thanks to the following people who aren't bloggers, but have played a huge part in making this blog what it is:

Family and Friends (For supporting and encouraging me along the way, even when I have wanted to quit. Especially my mom and husband.)

Kathryn and Will (for getting me that sweet news interview that helped my blog more than you could ever imagine!)

Beth and Brad (I have gotten so many hits from your blog)

Kaylee (for spreading the word about my blog, and being a super supportive cousin)

Kelly (The anonymous "angel" in the Blog Frog community. I honestly still don't know who you are. I was never able to find a way to contact you. But, any time the subject of groceries or saving money was brought up, you gave the name of my blog to all of the readers in that discussion, for some reason...even when I had just started it up! Thank you so much. That helped my blog in ways you could never know!)

Nicole (For being my very first dedicated reader, and now a very dear friend. I have enjoyed getting to know you.)

I hope I haven't forgotten anybody, but I love and appreciate you all! I couldn't have done it without all of you! Thanks again for this touching award, Deb!
