New Blog Awards

WOWSIERS!!! Recently we have been awarded 2 new awards. YAY FOR US!! I love getting awards but I find it hard to do all the things they ask for like tell us 20,000,000 things about yourself and find 40,000,000 new blogs to award this to and repost. But someone else took the time to do it and find me so I will take the time and do it for someone else. I mean hey we all like recognition dont we!!

Firstly we received the:

From Jessica at My World Made By Hand. Seriously you NEED to check her site out It Is AWESOME! Seriously why are you still here reading this? You should be checking out her blog!!

Second we received this:

A second award from another BRILLIANT Blogger. Sheesh I am so feeling the love this week!! Aubrie at A Mama B's gave us this award. WAHOOOOO! I love her site too. So much crafty goodness and yummy recipes. If you are still reading this then I am not convincing enough because this is another FANTASTIC site!

Thank you ladies for sharing the love. Now I get to share the love back. I wish I could reaward these lovely ladies with these awards but I will instead attempt to offer them to other beauties... I mean Blogs.

So here are the rules:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered great blogs.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.

  1. I have three beautiful children (a girl, a boy, and a girl) but have never been pregnant for longer than 34 weeks. The shortest time is 26 weeks with my little boy. So when people complain to me about being 40 weeks and really uncomfortable I have no idea what they are talking about :)
  2. I live over 6,000 miles away from home and have only been home to visit twice in the past 9 years. Im homesick A LOT!! ;)
  3. I'm married to the most fantastic man in the universe. Sorry ladies but its true!!
  4. My Husband is a Digital Forensic Investigator (he solves crimes on computers, then has to testify in court about what he has found.) and from time to time we have to have Witness Protection outside our home to protect us.
  5. I am falling into the new fad of Cupcaking. Oh. My. Heck. I cant get enough of cupcakes at the moment. All I want to do is bake them and make them look pretty. I dont want to eat them just make them look beautiful.
  6. I am a licensed esthetician.
  7. My best friends next to my husband (of course) are my mom and my sisters. Even though I live far away from home I talk to at least one of them pretty much every day of the week :)
And now for the blogs:

1. ...and Spiritually Speaking (I love being uplifted every day by each of her posts)
2. Frosted Happy Cakes (Did I mention I LOVE CUPCAKES?)
3.Random Acts of Obsession (My sister showed me this one. Its a Friend from HS's sister. Hi Becky! Some way cute stuff on here. Check. Her. Out!!)
4.Occasionally Crafty (I found this one a few weeks back and just cant get enough! BRILL - ANT)
5.Truly Lovely (More Crafty Goodness.)
6.Fabric Bows and More ( I did mention I have 2 Daughters didnt I? I dont think I would be your typical mommy if I didnt want to make them pretty things for their hair.)
7. Delectable Desserts (Have I mentioned I love food? If not well..... I DO!!)
8. Sugar Teachers (I need so much more help before I become nearly as good as these ladies!
9.Creative "Try"als (So much crafty goodness from a new crafter! I love finding New Blogs!!)
10.I Really Should Be Sleeping (Besides the fact that I love her blog. I love the fact that every night while I am crafting I am thinking to myself, I really should be sleeping :)
11. Got Chikin (Her craft and recipe blog is pure brilliance and her Moving Forward With Faith Blog made me cry and want to give her a HUGE Blogging buddy Hug!! Such strength and a testimony of faith!)
12.Thougths in Vinyl (I love Vinyl plus we have a GIVEAWAY from Janae TOMORROW!! Come back and have a look TOMORROW!!)
13. Jean's Crafty Corner (Simply Lovely!)
14. It's Always Craft Time (I couldnt agree more!)
15. Gwenny Penny (So many things to look at I got lost for hours on this blog!)

Phew Now that I have finished I think I need a Diet Pepsi and a Chocolate bar! Yep definitely in need!! Enjoy blog stalking some of my favorite new finds!!
