The Inaugural BINGO'S BEAUTIFUL BLOG AWARD will be presented today along with these instructions. I am introducing it today as it is my 36th wedding anniversary AND in honor of my retiring from 37 years of teaching!

This award is given for being a Beautiful Blog representing what "B-I-N-G-O" stands for, and so, one finds written with the presentation of this award the following:

This "B-I-N-G-O" BEAUTIFUL BLOG AWARD means that this blog is...

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

Please look carefully at as many blogs as you can to find the top FIVE blogs that YOU think also exemplify these standards and pass it along to them. Please don't break this chain of FIVE! If you are someone who doesn't want awards or doesn't pass them on, please tell the person who is giving it so they can share it with someone who would want it. Thank you.

Also, link your award to the person who gave it to you so when people link on the person's name or blog name, it will take them there to see that person's

I decided (and it was REALLY hard) to come up with only 5 who met the 5 points in BINGO!

My choices are:(and you don't have to elaborate like this in rewarding but I felt I owed it to these people and especially in that I am starting this award)

KAYE-- "B-eautiful"--for always delighting me with her adorable penguins, style and detail...and personally being my first true on-line friend that I found when visiting her BEAUTIFUL blog-- PUDGY PENGUIN'S PERUSALS

ALYSE--"I-nformative"--for always teaching me something new each time I visit her blog as well as making everyone feel special when they visit her creative and INFORMATIVE blog-- AT HOME WITH BOOKS

SHEL--"N-eighborly"--for her down home originality and charm and those always engaging photos and posts in her NEIGHBORLY blog-- WRITE FOR A READER

JEN--"G-orgeous"--for her fabulous, themed to perfection, enchanting and GORGEOUS blog-- UP CLOSE & PERSONAL WITH LADYTINK

DREY--"O-utstanding"-- her never ceasing to amaze me with her wealth of knowledge and stamina to produce her OUTSTANDING blog--DREY'S LIBRARY

So thank you to all the bloggers who make every day in our crazy blog world a source of pleasure for so well as some darn good fun! So go out, my worthy winners, and let's see who you feel are BINGO-rific!

Congrats on your anniversary and your retirement! I can't believe how much you've accomplished with your blog while you were working, it will be even more amazing with some free time on your hands! (You really put me to shame. I feel very lazy.) I hope you get to have fun, fun, fun and truly enjoy your retirement.

This is a great award you created and you picked some exceptional blogs as the first recipients. Congrats to all, they are very deserving! :)
