Awww, So Nice!

We have a family joke about using the descriptor "nice". Growing up, my brother was once making merciless fun of a girl I knew and my comeback was, "Oh, come on! She's...nice!" His baneful reply: "Nice is the worst thing you can say about someone. It means you can't think of anything better to say!" Even though I wanted to kill him (okay, that was true most of the time), he had a point, and I've made an effort to use better descriptors ever since.

But now, things have come full circle because today I was included in the Oh, the Joys list of recipients for the "Nice Matters Award". Thanks, Jess! The description is here:

“This award is for those bloggers who are cool people and awesome blog friends - those who bring tingly feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world. Once you’ve been awarded, please pass it on to 7 others who you feel are deserving of this award.”

Now, isn't that nice? I'll take it!

Here are my nominees - and I know some of you bloggers have recently received this, but I'm sorry. You have to be nominated again because you're that nice.

1. Kristen at From Here to There and Back
2. Susan at The Family Room
3. Susan at Friday Playdate, Friday Style, etc.
4. Elise at Snarky Squab
5. Shannon at Mama in Wonderland
6. Mrs. Chicken at Chicken and Cheese
7. Amy at Kvetch Blog

Recipients can choose between the blue button above and this pink one which is too frou-frou for my taste but might work for you:

kristen said...

Oh my--I've been nice again? Seriously, though, this is very nice? and it couldn't have come from a nicer? person...

Thanks, Jordan. I do feel honored to be in such fine company! And I agree with oh, the joys. Supa-nice!

Mrs. Chicken said...

Me? Nice? Are you sure you have the right blogger?

Thank you!


Elise said...

Awww, shucks. This makes me feel all warm and gooey inside. Thanks for the tag!

Kvetch said...

Oh my goodness thank you! I'm blushing. There is nothing not nice about nice. :)

Shan said...

So sweet. Thanks! Fun to see one of my dearest "real-world" friends in the picks, too! (Super-nice Elise.)

Either I'm not nice, and/or only chicks can be nice. In either case, raising my eyebrows as I survey the blogging scenery around here, let me just say, "Niiiiiiiiiiiiiice."

Jordan said...

Christopher, you are very, very, very nice! I actually meant to email you and tell you just how nice you are. You are definitely a "nice bloggy friend" or whatever that phrase is! ;-) I suppose I should have broken the 7-person rule, I was just trying to mix things up a little this time around!

I'm not offended, don't worry.
