*Breaking News*

I interrupt today's regular scheduled post (which is below) for some breaking news. Ok not breaking, but fun! I have been given two rewards. How fun is that!? My dear friend Somer rewarded me with this one:


Thanks Somer for thinking of me!
Rules for the reward:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link to their blog.
2. Share 10 honest things about yourself.
3. Present this award to 7 other whose blogs you find brilliant in design or content.
4. Tell those 7 people they have been awarded.
10 Honest Things About Myself:
1. I worry constantly about everything and my only saving grace is my savior Jesus Christ
2. We are currently trying to get preggers with a third blessing after suffering a miscarriage.
3. I was born in Vienna, Austria where my parents were missionaries. They would plan boarder crossings while I napped in hopes the guards wouldn't disturb a sleeping baby, and it worked! They have many crazy stories of bible smuggling during the iron curtain era.
4. I had really hard, complicated relationships through my school years and I am very thankful for the great friends I have today.
5. I love TV. I watch way too much. And I have no idea how I survived without Tivo.
6. I am the pickiest eater ever. I don't like most things, including most sweets (good for me though!). And I am trying my hardest to make sure my kiddos don't pick up this bad habit.
7. I hate cleaning. Don't get me wrong I love tidiness and organization, but when it comes down to cleaning out the fridge, the toilets, around the base boards, mopping, yuk! My hubby is a better cleaner than me!
8. I hated to read. That was until I discovered Francine Rivers (Redeeming Love to be specific), now I love to, well when I get the time.
9. I entered the blogging world (not writing my own yet but starting to read others) around this time last year and I am so thankful for the other women/mommies out there that share their lives with others so we can learn and grow from their happiness, sarrow, mistakes, strengths, and just being a fly on the wall of their lives.
10. I am tickled pink each and every time I get a comment on one of my posts! : )
Check out these 7 blogs:
1. Studiophotographie (gotta give the hubs a shout out!)
2. The Joys of Being a Mother (gotta give a shout back!)
3. Kevin and Amanda (great blog decorating links and ideas!)
4. Natalie's Sentiments (love her!)
5. Matt and Maddy (daddy and daughter on their own)
6. Joyful Adorations (my newest dear bloggy friend :) )
7. Abi Q (love her love for romance and her GREAT pictures)

Then there is my fun award from Heather:

Aw, you're so sweet! Loved reading your 10 things! It's so neat that your parents were missionaries. I'm sure they have tons of stories :) I'm definitely praying with you about #2!!!

Hi there!
I am a worrier too! It can be helpful though if you have fearless child. Adds just a bit of fear! hee hee
I also LOVE Tivo! How did we ever survive/watch anything without it. I can't watch tv til the kids are in bed so Tivo is a must!
Cleaning sucks!
