I had this wonderful surprise in my comments section last night from reader Weenie Elise:

"Hi Emer--there's a fabulous award waiting for you on our blog. Come and get it! And thanks for all your great posts."

So I wandered over to Elise's blog and found this:

She'd written a lovely little note about why readers should visit my blog and why it was fabulous.

"Emer at Circa 1952 for opening my eyes to interesting things about being a Marine's wife..."

The pride I feel in that one little sentence is more than I can say, so thank you Elise!!

The Fabulous Award is meant to be passed on to other bloggers, with a few stipulations:
1. Save this picture to your computer for your blog (you've earned it!).
2. You must pass it on to 5 other Fabulous bloggers in a post.
3. You must include the person who gave the award to you and a link back to their blog.
4. You must list 5 of your Fabulous Addictions in the post.
5. You must copy and post these rules in the post.

So let's see, five fabulous addictions that little Emer has (fabulous to me anyways)...
1. My husband (I cry when I have to be away from him for more than a weekend)
2. Law & Order: SVU and CI (I can watch whole seasons in a day)
3. Reading (when I find a good book I can read it over and over again until the book falls apart)
4. Make-up (I firmly believe new make-up can turn any bad day around)
5. Earplugs (I can't sleep without them)

And now for my pick of my five favorite (and fabulous) blogs:
1. Candice at Super Kawaii Mama, because she gives me hope that I will not turn into a boring old house mother.
2. Fleur de Guerre at Diary of a Vintage Girl, because she was the first vintage blog I started reading and I'll always hold a special place in my heart for her and her blog.
3. Neroli at Vintage Verve, because she puts a lovely vintage spin on even the most modern of days.
4. Cat at The Vintage Housewife, because we both share a love for vintage items and hot men in uniforms!! Rrreow!
5. And last but not least, Alyssa at AlyssAmazing. While she's not a "retro" girl, her knack for finding deals, DIY-ing most of her house, and always having something new and exciting to redecorate, she's earned a top spot on my weekly read list.

So again thank you Elise, thank you other fabulous bloggers, and as always, thank you readers! I hope you've all had a wonderful weekend.
