Awe Shucks... I've been awarded..

My friend over at hyperactivelu blessed me with two awards yesterday! Thanks Lu! You didn't have too but I'll sure enough take it! And now, it is time for me to bestow the award on five of my blogging friends. Lu would no doubt be included in this list if she hadn't already won the award but none the less, you should check her out. Each of these ladies are creative in their own individual ways but, they have blogs that I make sure I visit as soon as they post something new because I can't wait to see what they have to say or what new thing they are going to to teach me.

Becky at Five Mockingbirds-- Becky is a friend from college. She loves to cook and has lately been showing some neat decorating tips. She is the mother of three so there of course is no shortage of mom talk.

Holly at The Hud-sons and One Pretty Princess -- Holly is a wonderful writer. I always get a few laughs at her blog and usually a few tears too. She is pregnant with her fifth child and that is always fun to watch.

Jay at Janey and Me Happily-- Jay was one of the students that was in our youth ministry when Adam was an intern 11 years ago. She now is one of my best friends. This girl has creativity coming out her ears. She's a photographer, she sews, she decorates and if she hasn't tried it yet, if you challenge her with it, she will.

Stephanie at Stoked to Be Stokes-- another former student turned best friend, she is a first time mom and adjusting to being a stay at home mom. She is another one of those artsy girls that is abundantly blessed with creativity. She also could really use some love and support from some other moms so, you should definitely pay her a visit:).

And last but not least is my friend over at Life's About a Dream -- Incredibly quick witted, I have never come across anyone one else that can say so much in so few words..

And the thing that I love most about all five of these moms is that they are all Christians, you know, the real kind, that admit that this parenting thing can be tough and they're just doing the best that they can to love the one's God's blessed them with.

I love all you girls!

Wow. First I would like to thank my crazy family for giving me so much material. Second, I would like to thank Dana for being a good example to me, all the way back since I was in elementary school. And last, I would like to thank the Academy. "They like me! They really like me!"

Girl, you are so sweet. I appreciate your blog so much and gain tons from it.
Love you!
