Me?? No!!

Note: I did something and it greyed out all the links...if you see a name, click on it. Sorry!

Well, yes it is me...I
won an award from an amazing person. Carrie, one of my newest and sweetest blog friends, gave me this lovely award. Isn't it cute? I'm honored because I think her blog is so lovely and to think that she thinks of me that way...well, it makes me smile. You must stop by her blog and check her out and you'll see what I mean.

So, here are the rules:

1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who has granted the award, and his or her blog link.

2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

Here they are (I decided to give you a brief {because there are so many reasons} description of why I think they are lovely. Sometimes I wonder if it's strange to talk about these ladies, most that I don't know in real life, but they have become friends.

Jodie - She is one of my real-life friends that I pulled into blogging (I didn't have to pull too hard!). She is one of the sweetest people I know and would give you the shirt off of her back. She's crafty and man, can she bake!

Laura - Another real-life friend. She has taught me quite a few things over the years and I will treasure them. She is very witty on her blog and I love it!

Kelli - Another sweetie. Kelli is almost due with her 3rd child and she's also homeschooling her preschooler. She's very organized and has the cutest ideas on how to teach her children. I've learned a lot from her as well...which reminds me to start working on my family binder (she has great tips!).

Joanna - THE designer of my blog! Talk about talent. She also has great decorating skills and she's started a new carnival to share recipes...just what I like.

Jennifer - This lady makes me laugh. She also loves Y&R (Um, I still need you to update me).

Jen - Another talented lady all-around, fashion, crafts,'s all there. She is SO nice too and sent me a lovely CD (that my husband is hogging!).

Laurel - She has 3 adorable little ones is also has some great tips for us moms with little ones. She also shares home decor tips.

Summer - This newlywed knows how to write. I love reading her stories and all about how she is adapting to being a housewife...and doing a great job. A real sweetheart.

Sarah - Sarah's blog is filled with all kinds of things too. She has crafts, recipes, great name it. Her girls are cute too!

Heidi - When I look up crafty in the dictionary I see Heidi. This lady is amazingly crafty and very organized. I use her blog as a tool often.

Vivienne - Talk about making me laugh. I have tears when I read this blog. Feeling like the need for a laugh...this is a must blog.

Amy - She is an amazing mom, all this I can tell just by reading her blog. She recently did a post about her son's birthday and it was so sweet. She's trying to survive a remodel so stop by and give her some positive vibes!

Meredith - When I need some spiritual inspiration this is where I go. This lady truly hits home for me often and makes me think. She has 5 beautiful children and is doing an amazing job with them.

Tanya - Another inspiration. And I'm learning all about my Crockpot with her Crockpot Tuesdays!

Shawn - Another really funny, witty lady. I love to read her stories about her daughters because it gives me some insight to what Jamison will be like in a few years.

And last, but not least...Carrie!! This lady is funny, caring, has two sweet kids, and is an inspiration. She truly stops to capture the moment (with her new camera) and savor life. You must stop by the Manor.

Girl - you just have a way with words. It never ceases to amaze me how you can build people up with words. It's a gift! Hope you're feeling better! Will you be at church on Sunday? I'm in nursery so stop by and say "hi!" (that totally rhymes!!)
