I Received an Award!

I have seen other people's blogs with awards...Best Blog, The Smile Award, Most Creative...and thought that's cool they really deserve those! Today, however, I was awarded my very very first blog award! The best part is that it was given to me by my very bestest Renee! You can find her at her blog, My Glimpse Of Life, which by the way is a fantasticly humorous and down to earth blog, where she chronicles her daily happenings. I highly recommend it be added to your favorites! Renee is my cousin. You know how you have cousins who you are close to just because you're related, then you have cousins who you would be friends with EVEN if they weren't related to you...well, Renee is the later for me. We would be friends regardless. She gets me. Sometimes I'm sure we are the only ones who find each other humorous (or down right hilarious)...although I'm equally sure that we make people laugh, even if it is at our own expense. We've been at this for a long time. The two of us were in Campfire together, went to the same Church and Youth Group, shared dorm rooms at cheerleading camp, went to church camp together...we definitely have history! So, thanks Renee for thinking of me and giving me this award (like you had a choice)!

If I got this right (which I'm sure I do because for the majority I'm usually right...teehee..I kid;)...these are the rules:

*Mention the blog that gave it to you and comment on their blog to let them know you have posted your award.
*Share 6 values that are important to you.
*Share 6 things you do not support.
*Grant the prize to 6 people.

So, mention the blog that gave it to me...check!

Now for my 6 values...

  1. God - I base my life on His plan for me. Without Him I would be nothing.

  2. Being Mom - I really value this role in life. Isaiah has brought so many joyful moments and I love him so much! I really don't know what I did before I became "Mom" (OK, I probably lazed around on the couch, watched whatever I wanted on TV, read a whole novel in 2 evenings, exercised daily...but you know what I's totally worth it:).

  3. Family - I feel so blessed to have been born into the family that I have. I LOVE my family...I mean REALLY love them. We're close. We do things together. We enjoy each other. I'm totally blessed.

  4. Being an American - I'm really appreciative to be an American. I think in times such as these people forget what men and women have done in the past to secure our freedom and liberties. I'm so thankful for those who put their lives on the line for our country, and for their families who make the ultimate sacrifice.

  5. Friendships - Old and new...they mean the world to me. I can't say enough about my friends. LOVE YOU ALL!

  6. A Good Cup of Coffee - For those of you who really know me, you know I REALLY mean this. :)

Now for 6 things I do not support...

  1. Abortion

  2. Any type of injustice

  3. Any type of violence or cruelty (toward people or animals)

  4. Ignorance

  5. People or organizations who do not have integrity and good values

  6. OSU or Texas (you would have to be a Sooner fan to understand this one.)

Now I have to tag 6 people and give them the award... (I wanted to give the award to a few of my other favorite daily reads like Melissa, Feather, Lori and Renee...but since they've already received the award, I thought I would share the wealth or award rather!)

  1. Lisa - she's probably the most creative and original person I know...she makes BEAUTIFUL paper crafts and these gorgeous crowns in her Etsy stores...She also has a fantastic GIVEAWAY going on right now. She has two totally unique blogs...go check her out!
  2. Mistee - from Our Family Blog #2...she's a new friend from blog-land. I think her writings are fun and down to earth. By the way, she has this fantastic GIVEAWAY going on right hurry on over there and check her out!
  3. Katie - from Blessed By 3 Miracles. I don't really know her, but from what I've read in her blog her and her family are wonderful...they have adopted a child, who is precious by the way. Her other two boys are adorable. She has BEAUTIFUL pics on her blog. Go on over there and plan on staying a while...reading 'til your hearts content! :)
  4. Angie - She has a blog called The Happy Homebody. She truly is CREATIVE with a capital 'C'!! She has some wonderful ideas on crafts for your home and she has a knack for turning old out-of-dated trays into something spectacular! Go see for yourself!
  5. Buzzings of a Queen Bee - what a fun read this girl is...she's terribly clever. I think you'll like her too...what are you waiting! You can thank me later :)
