Peach State says: Fantastic Facebook Funnies

I thought it only fitting to start off with an “Award Winner” this morning …SO…Fantastic Facebook Funnies begins with the coveted (drum roll….) Straight Jacket Award:

I don’t think I will bother this sweet kitty…would you?

At a time when people are flowing in and out of town, resembling the ebb and flow of the ocean, some people think outside the box.

The only way to have a Family Reunion “Stay-Ca”

Making friends while on vacation….yep!

Kiddie control is a valuable asset when traveling.

Schedules go out the window when traveling.

Dealing with house-sitters when you come home…I think I would have used a different service.

Some things are not the same when you get home.

This is a fun family activity…except that all my kids were like the gray kitty..up and alert!

Yep…my kids always wanted to know about the next meal!

Warning…some things are not a described when ordered online!

Food and Coffee:

So ‘fess up…how many muffins did you really eat?

Which one are you?

A mother’s job is never done….right!

Things that should never happen.


That’s all I have to say about that!

Oh…and Happy Birthday anyway…

Now for the award presentation…(drum roll…)
Blog Worthy Award Winner #1:

Even more scary is the fact that this was sent to an actual father on Father’s Day!

Blog Worthy Award Winner#2:

One of those many voices….

Did you find something to make you smile today? I hope so!

Keep posting those pics and…Have a great day!

Peach State says: I Never Saw It Coming!

I need to know you are awake before telling you this wonderful news.
There I was…checking my blog stats with robotic precision only to find no overwhelming increase in the views and likes. I second guess myself and hope, somewhere out in the vastness of the blogosphere, someone is relating to my words and stories. I click the notifications tab and there it was…a bright shinning beam of light!

“I just wanted to let you know, as a fan of your blog, I have nominated you for a couple of awards!”

I Never Saw It Coming!

“Sorry…I break into song at the drop of a hat these days!”

Let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. I would like to first thank tickalongnice. The recognition from readers and bloggers is…well…wonderful!

Would you like to see the newest blog awards presented to JustBetweenCousins?



Don’t they look great? There are a few things I have to do…you know…the rules of acceptance…so here goes!

*Post the awards on blog…check
*Thank the blog/blogger for the nomination…check
*List seven things about yourself
*Nominate seven bloggers for the award

Because there are two awards that were given at the same time I do not know if I have to fulfill the requirements separately or if I can combine into one group of seven. We will see how it goes!

7 Things About Me:
1- I want to become a Studio Singer. These singers are not the recording artist but sing backup. I have resigned myself that getting a recording contract is not a possibility at my stage of life.
2- I love to communicate using movie quotes.
3- I cannot cook without sampling.
4- I am constantly learning new things and realizing I can do more than I thought I could.
5- I am not as weak as my sons think I am…but let’s just keep that juicy tid-bit between us!
6- I love asking the grocery store cashier if I qualify for the 50% off promotion. The responses I get back are mixed…with a few not-so-nice-snooty-we-don’t-have-that looks. “But it is still fun!”
7- I have an great group of friends! Several of my friends are just like me…scary as that may sound I chose to believe it is a wonderful blessing.

7 Blogs I Am Nominating for these Awards:
2- Texana’s Kitchen
3- spiritedmama1
4- Katherine O. Cooper
5- All that makes you
6- The Laughing Housewife
7- The Parenting Gig

A big thank you to all my readers and blogging supporters. I am off to take my youngest back to school shopping. Have a great day!

Peach State says: A Little Sunshine to Start My Day!

With my coffee in hand I began my morning of habitual and routine actions. I checked my Facebook and posted the numerous replies…bounced over to Swagbucks and did a search for my morning swag…then the all important checking of my Blog Stats. The notifications tab was bright and starred meaning something good waited for me. My heart was near racing when I opened the tab and found a nomination for the “Sunshine Award“. With a thick cloud cover outside I still had A Little Sunshine to Start My Day!

Let me begin by thanking indrajitpatra….written from the soul. I am very honored and thank you for the nomination. Words cannot express the appreciation I feel for this acknowledgment of my blog as well as the spontaneous outburst of dancing, on my wood floors, in my fuzzy socks. “I can mark exercise off my list of things to do for the day!”

As the rules state I am to thank the blog/blogger for the nomination…
I need to answer some questions….and nominate 10 blogger/blogs for the same honor!

Once again…Thank you indrajitpatra…written from the soul for this nomination. This blog opens the heart to seek the beauty in life.

The soul-seeking questions:

Love or Money?
Love…yep Love!
High Salary or Job Satisfaction?
Job satisfaction…that salary gets taxed and then there is nothing left.
Favorite Book?
Anything written by Nicholas Sparks…
Who is the Television Character you simply adore?
Leroy Jethro Gibbs and Anthony Dinozo…from NCIS! There are many others but alas…I have time constraints.
Favorite Music?
Most Christian music and Country music and anything by Josh Groban and Michael Buble’. “Quit shaking your head…I like some good old Rock and Roll too!”
Favorite type of movie?
Romantic Comedies or maybe Action Suspense…with some Horror thrown in.

The 10 Blogs I would like to nominate are:
Coco J. Ginger
Memories Sew Precious
No Tall Stories

Please take a few moments and explore this buffet of difference I enjoy each day. There is humor and life lessons with personality plus to be found in these blogs! As for me I am off to try and finish the decorating of my classroom for Vacation Bible School this next week. I have the beautiful Victoria Falls as one of the main scenes and will be recreating The Matterhorn Sunday after church. There will be a seating arrangement resembling an airplane facing a cockpit where another teacher will lead as the pilot… “I found out yesterday he was in the Air Force!” I will show you the pics after I finish…if the decorations are any good! HeHe! Have a great day!
