Yeah Me......

Blog Awards

While I was away from bloggyland....some wonderful people were gracious enough to honor me with some new Blog Awards!!!

My First Award:

Ave from Made In Canarias awarded me with this blog award!!! A very special thanks to Ave for thinking of me:) If you haven't visited her blog....check it out...it's well worth it!!! Thanks again Ave!!!!

The rules here are to pass the award on to 7 bloggers who I think are honest in their blogging and to list 10 honest things about myself.

Ten Honest Things about myself:

1. Fall is my favorite time of year....I love when the leaves change color and it's not too hot and it's not too cold....not to mention Halloween!!! I love to see the excitement on the little ones faces when their imagination takes flight for a day:)
2. I am a lover of life...I find ways to keep myself busy yet envy those who have figured out it's ok to take time to stop and smell the roses along the way.
3. The thing I want most in life is to be a mother......
4. I love to read books by Jodi Picoult....hopefully she writes faster than I read, so I don't run out of books:)
5. I am an accountant by trade but have been loving every minute of staying at home with my neice Alivia for the past three years!!!
6. I love lazy rainy days around the house.
7. I am very crafty...I design children's clothing, hairbows, and love anything else that is crafty.
8. I take friendship very seriously...I think there is nothing better in life than a good friend...I was lucky enough to marry my best friend!!
9. I believe in the philosophy that you are only as good as the people you surround yourself by...so choose your friends wisely:)
10. I love my life....sure there are times when things aren't perfect but I wouldn't trade if for anything....because afterall it's my life!!

I am passing this award to:

The Second Award:

A special thanks to Heather at Visions of Sugarplums for this award!!! If you haven't been to her blog check it out. She makes amazing wedding garters!!!

I’m suppose to list 5 obsessions I have and then tag 5 others.

My obsessions:

1.Crafting: I love to make things especially children's clothing. I am so grateful to be married to a wonderful man who puts up with my oh so messy crafting:)

2. Photos: I love photos...I take pictures of everything....my husband gets agrevated sometimes because I have to have so many. I just feel like as long as you have a picture of it you'll never forget that it happened.

3. Ribbon: I have so much ribbon at my house it is crazy. I have it to make hairbows...but I save even the smallest pieces of it that are too small to make hairbows just incase I find something else crafty to do with it;)

4. Cloth: I design children's clothing so I am constantly in cloth stores, but I have a hard time not buying it all...I can always think of something to make out of it:)

5. Family: I think that there is nothing like family. I love spending time with my family and being there for them.

I'm passing the award on to:

Tina @ Talkin with Teenie

Chrissy, OMG thank you so much. It may take me a few days to get them done but I will do it. You are so sweet to honor me with these awards. God Bless.

Tina said...

Thank you so much for the award...I have been a little under the weather so I just signed on and noticed it. I will get a post up today!

Chrissy awarding my blog for honesty is the greatest honor. I have such a hard time with some blogs(I will not name them)that seem to have no integrity and being "Real" is so important to me!

Thanks again...and you deserved each award yourself! Great Job!!!

Thank you so much for this award! I have been sick with Swine Flu for over a week now and am just getting back into the swing of things. I am having a Blogging for Boobs Breast Bash on my blog right now, so I will have to add the award next month. I am writing the post now though so I don't forget! Please stop by and check out our guest posts and giveaways. There's also a handy button if you want to help spread the word.

Sorry for the post length comment. LOL
