Blog Award and News

Did you know I have exciting news? Okay - it probably doesn't matter to you at all -but I'm getting remodeled!! As a gift, my sweet husband has given me a blog remodel from Designer Blogs. It should be up by the end of the month and I am super-excited. I really enjoy pretty things and there are ways that I have wanted my blog to look and just couldn't "get them" to look that way. Anyway - just wait. I'm in the queue so even I'm not sure when it will all be done.

So I just received my very own blog award and I am so honored to be given by my friend April. She is quite the thrifty fashion girl, a new bride and a big DIY-er. I read several of the same blogs that she reads so just hop on over and check out her list.

So here are my blog nominees:
Joel and Kitty Hurdle - they are co-workers and really fun. They're just really real blogging all of life - ministry, what God is teaching them and renovation stories.
Larissa - She is a sweet girl who does amazingly well as pretty much anything she puts her mind to. She is pursuing new experiences and blogs about them with photos. She's also an incredible cake maker/decorator.
Sarahbeth is a friend from back home (SC). She blogs about her life, little girls (I can relate) and what God is teaching her. I enjoy the realness of her journeys.
Lisa is another friend from back home who shares about her life (really regularly for a mommy LOL) what God is doing in her life, her natural living journey and her sweet children.


Finally, here are seven random interesting things about me: If you want more, check out the facebook list a did about a year ago.
  • 1. My parents and sister are simultaneously proud and confused by my natural living stuff - especially the medical (anti-mainstream) orientation.
  • 2. My only sister is almost 14 years younger than me - same parents (but my understanding is that we were both surprises).
  • 3.My hair is very, very thick. Until about two years ago everyone who ever cut my hair fussed at me for having such thick hair (33 years). Isn't that sad? That's why I am ultra-loyal to Bob @ Top of the Morn because he says my thick hair is great and I should keep it long.
  • 4. One of my favorite books is a business book called Good to Great.
  • 5. I was homeschooled and I did not wear gauchos (& still don't).
  • 6. My husband is my best friend - literally my very best friend.
  • 7. I think strategic planning is one of the most enjoyable ways to spend my time.

I was just reading your "greens" article and I have no idea how I missed this award! I subscribe to your blog, but never saw this. It's my first award as well! I'm so honored :) Love you!
