Versatile Blogger Award, Anyone?

Yesterday afternoon, we made a very fantastic discovery!  We found out that our friends over at Just Food Snobs had chosen us for the Versatile Blogger Award!  Yippee!

This was a most welcome surprise for a lazy Saturday afternoon.  It was so super exciting, in fact, that I called Husband up during a business meeting just to tell him!

We are extremely honored to have received this award, especially since it is given out by peers.  So, we humbly, and happily, thank Just Food Snobs for thinking of us!  Thank you!

The Guidelines for accepting this award are:

– Thank the person who gave it to you.
– Tell 7 things about yourself.
– Pass the award on to 15 bloggers whom you have recently discovered, and think are fantastic!

7 Things about Queen Bee:

1 – The bees are Melissa and Melissa.

2 – We met in college and have been a part of each others lives for all the major events – our weddings, big moves to new cities, babies, etc.

3 – Queen Bee’s awesome husband takes most of our pictures. Thank you, my sweet!

4 – Thanksgiving is our traditional Bee holiday – we get together and make a fabulous meal.

5 – We’re honorary members of the haters club.  Our husbands are the founders.  Long story.

6 – Both bees are the oldest children in their families.

7 – We both love a really delicious Bloody Mary.

  1. Thank you so much for thinking of me! FYI, you will be one of my 15 as well! I love your blog, your daughter is so cute! I love her enjoying the popsicle! I’m a frequent reader, please continue your kind words and love of food!

    Oh- and I love your story about picturing eats in food shops! I’m always afraid someone will tell me NOT to picture something in their store. I’m known to whip out the camera look away and snap a quick pic before any one even notices. Everyone is saying I should have said “yes” to that guy… oh well lol.

    Wow, I wasn’t expecting to see my blog on the list! Thanks, Melissa and Melissa. I will thank you here AND on my blog, when I have a chance to post on it.

    Mmmm. Bloody Marys. Although I am partial to a dry martini myself 😉

  3. queenbeeeatsforaday Says:

    No problem! She is a cutie…I’m (Queen Bee) just the proud Auntie…the other bee belongs to the baby. But yes, she is our little muppet. And yes, you should have said YES to that guy! tee hee

  4. queenbeeeatsforaday Says:

    Really like your stuff, so yes, we were happy to include you! Bloody Marys are what we bonded over right after college, so it’s something special to our friendship! However, I also like a really dirty martini as well!

  5. Loll Says:

    Thank you so much for choosing my blog as one of the 15! I am so honoured. Your blog is fantastic and I love reading all your posts. Have a wonderful week Melissa and Melissa! x

  6. queenbeeeatsforaday Says:

    You’re very welcome – well deserved! Same to you!

  7. Jason Phelps Says:

    Congratulations. I’m not looking for an award, but if you are looking for something new come on over and check out our adventures.


  8. queenbeeeatsforaday Says:

    Aw, thanks, your site totally deserves one as well — though I can’t come up with 15 new blogs again (brain hurts). That strawberry rosemary cooler looks divine…never thought about grilling herbs for cocktails!

  9. You Rock! that”s all I can say. What an honor for me to be recognized by a now award winning blog and and be placed beside 14 other wonderful bloggers. Congrats to you and I look forward to passing it on thank you.

  10. queenbeeeatsforaday Says:

    WE do rock! tee hee You’re an award-winning blog now, too! Congratulations and I look forward to seeing more and more awesome posts from you!

  11. Congratulations on the award! It’s a well deserved award, and how lucky are you to be such good friends who share the same passion! Thank you for thinking of me! Blogging about food is a labor of love isn’t it?

  12. queenbeeeatsforaday Says:

    Thanks so much! We are lucky, maybe it’s because we share a name (that’s what our husbands chalk everything up to, at least!) And you’re right, it is a labor of love…never thought of it that way, but totally! XO

  13. Emily Says:

    Congrats on the success! Much deserved!!!
