The origin of the Sisterhood Award comes the awesomeness of Diana who created it out of inspiration by The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. This is a special award that is meant to be given and shared with our best bloggy girlfriend(s). The mission is to bestow on them the award in thanksgiving for their special friendship. No need to list favorites, addictions or what-not, although today's winners have plenty of the latter two, as well as a severe case of commentarrhea. And mine is a Equal Opportunity Blog.

I was catching up on some of my favorite friends in the midst of this sleepless night when I stumbled upon this award from Alix at Casa Hice. I've had several of these as of late (sleepless nights, narcoleptic days, but certainly not awards) and if you think the reason I nearly missed it is because of that, you're wrong. It's because Alix has literally become a shadow of her former self and when she stands sideways, she's beginning to resemble a zipper. With cool traveling pants to boot. So bless you, Alix, for this sweet award, for your sweet success, and whom I will forever remember as being the only person in my life who made me cry over a duck. Love you, LuLu.

It is with deep pleasure and true irony that I pass this on to the women and men who have given me the support and grace laced with sarcasm, humor and even a bit of eewwwww over at the Fellowship of the Traveling Smarty Pants. You see, they (meaning katdish) stole this award from someone early on in the writing of FOTTSP because they wanted to be that blog. Now, they are. So ladies of the Marvelous 7+ and men, you have earned this award for real. Do with it what you (respectfully) please, eliminating all references to Rotel, Velveeta, and Joel Osteen, if you would.

Congrats to you and all of the recipients. :o)

Sherri Murphy said...

I have a confession to make...I stole the award early on. I know.

But it just seemed so right, you know?

But now, we can at least take the "stolen disclaimer" off the award because now, we truly earned it.

Thank you, thank you, how can I ever thank you!?

Now, get some sleep.

Congratulations to the winners! Isn't it interesting/amazing/awesome that whenever you group hilarious, clever, gorgeous people together, that there's always a BETH involved???! ;o)


Helen said...

Thanks, Candy. I was worried about belonging to a group that steals its awards, but I feel much better now.
That's right. The stolen award bothered me, not PCB.

Candy! What an honor!

Thank you so much for the wonderful tribute and especially for linking to my LuLu story. How sweet! Ya know? That story still makes me cry too! Gosh, I really miss that duck.

Anyway - sistah - it means a lot to me that you are enjoying your award and are passing it along to YOUR wonderful bloggy friends. Because of you I am now following Michelle and look forward to reading many of your friend's blogs.

You are precious to me and I just wanted to thank you for the great mention and for being my friend.
