A New Friend...and She Comes with an Award!

WOW! Three posts in one day...I sure am busy this Monday, so don't forget to scroll down.

I met a new blog friend...don't you just love that. Her name is Carrie and she has two of the most adorable children. I have had fun chatting with her and getting to know her better. You have to stop over her blog and check her out!

Well my new friend gave me this award because she thinks I'm Awe-summm:



Check out that crown! It's so sparkly and pretty. Here are the rules:

I am to list 7 things that make me Awe-Summm and then pass the award on to 7 bloggers I love. Make sure to tag the recipients and let them know they have won! Also link back to the Queen that tagged me.

1. I love being a wife and mom. Both can be difficult at times, but I wouldn't trade either for anything. They are my rock and my joy.

2. I love organization. Now my home has a bit of a ways to go, but I love organizing and once it's all done it will make our lives much more smooth.

3. I am a great friend. You need someone to talk to in the middle of the night, I'm there...you need to get away and go to dinner, I'm right with you...need a sitter, I'm you girl...got a secret or need some prayer, I deliver! Us girlfriends have to take care of one another.

4. I'm a growing Christian. This makes me awe-summ because I know my faults and I still have a desire to grow with Christ. I try to remember that ultimately it's God who is in control and I am His humble servant.

5. I make a mean lasagna. I got the recipe from my mom and have tweeked it just a bit. It's a real treat in our house.

6. I try and always have a smile, even if I'm a little down. There's just something cheery about a smile.

7. I keep Target in business. Seriously, if it weren't for my weekly trips there I think they would have to fold. I'm sure they think I'm pretty awe-summm too!

Now for my 7 awe-summm friends:

LOL! I LOVE Target so much! That is THE place to be around here, too! It's so nice to learn more about how awesome you are! I could use some help with the organization! And I love lasagna! Mmmmm...can't make it, but love to eat it! Thanks for the sweet comments and kind words...it would be fun to get together, I bet our kids would get along great :)

Oh I so wish we could be in real life friends, you sound awesome! I love girl time and dinners out, but we'd have to make our last stop of the night Tar-jar for sure! I swear I just walk in and fifty bucks jumps out of my pocket!
