Another Award

I've won an award. I love to get awards. Sarah from God's Not Finished with Us Yet nominated me for an Kreativ Blogger Award, and I am sincerely happy and blessed to receive it! Thank you, Sarah!! As a recipient of this award, you are supposed to nominate 7 people to receive the award, and you are to tell 7 things that your blog readers may not already know about you.

First, the nominees:

1. Robin at Robin's Chicks - this is a very humorous mommy blog. Robin and I went to high school together and connected on facebook and in the blog world. Her blog is such a funny read - she even has her own newspaper column now and is also working on getting a book published.

2. Courtney at A Day in the Life of a Housewife - this is a great crafting blog. I am not crafty in the least little bit, so I love to look at the crafty things that Courtney comes up with - they are so beautiful and delicate looking. Courtney has been a great encouragement to me through the blog world.

3. Shirley at Alabama Times - a blog about life in Alabama when you are not from here. Ha! Shirley moved from Pennslyvania, and her husband does prison ministry. She blogs about daily life, and I love reading about God's work in her life and about how selfless people are for her family. She is one of the first people who read my blog somewhat regularly that doesn't know me personally, and I love her blog.

4. Alabama Bloggers - I recently found this blog site, and I love it. It is a place for other Alabama bloggers to connect and blog together. I don't know if this site even receives blog awards, but I love it anyway. :)

5. Brooke at Off the Cuff and On the Fly - this is great blog about the Thompson family, and it talks about everything from vacations to homeschooling to a mommy learning a new sport - runnning. A good read!

6. Valerie at It's a Wonderful Life - this blog is new to me, as in I found it because of the LPM bible study I am going to participate in, but I wanted to nominate a blog new to me too.

7. Lindy at Levi Hughes - this blog is all about baby Levi and what he is doing.

Now for the 7 useless, but still rather interesting and new/updated, facts about me:

1. After having my second baby, I like eating pickles on my Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, and I've never liked pickles on any sandwich. Also, now I like to eat guacamole too.

2. I had a c-section first and a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) second.

3. I made straight A's until I switched high schools (that's why I love awards so much), but much to my chagrin, I was already behind the other honors students when I transferred in the 10th grade. I did not make straight A's in college.

4. I have always wanted to write and publish a book since I was like 7. I "wrote" one right after my baby sister was born telling about her birth, and my best friend, and our move from Anniston to Cordova shortly thereafter.

5. I would love to adopt a child, especially an ethnic baby, but an American child would be good too.

6. Both of my children nursed almost exclusively from me and had a total of less than twenty bottles for the first year of their lives. We own several bottles but really did not need them.

7. I can imitate people's voices very well, and this also includes some TV and cartoon characters. For example, I usually only read the VeggieTales book "in character." And, if I have talked to you and you have an accent or an interesting way of talking and I'm retelling a story about a conversation we've had, I'm totally going to impersonate you, and I'm pretty good at it. Mind you, I'm not totally making fun, but I love the differences we all have. :) I know somebody out there impersonates my accent too. ;)

Nominees, if you accept this award, please be sure to copy the graphic at the top of this post, and nominate 7 new people and write 7 facts about you. Congratulations!


  1. I just found you via Alabama Bloggers and was wondering if you happen to know David and Candy Jones that live in Cordova? They used to go to church with us (in Prattville) and know I keep up with them on their blog.

    Have a great day!

  2. Hey Jamie, Nice to "meet" you too. That is the Kailey you know. I called her mom and she told me to tell you hello. I also know your mom from church. Love her, she is very sweet. I am from Sumiton and David is from Aldridge. We both lived in Prattville when we first married until Fall 2006 so about 12 years. Then we moved back here to Cordova. It was a very hard move for me because we had a super church family there(like Amy Wade who commented here earlier) I will start keeping up with your blog. So, glad you found us!

  3. Hi. I love your blog! I found you from Sarah's blog! I love seeing blogs from other believing moms! God Bless, and congrats on the award

  4. Thank you so much for sharing this blog award with me... Hope you have a great weekend.



I love to receive your thoughts. I am blessed and encouraged by them. May God bless your day today!
