Blog Award!!!

Awww shucks. An award?? For me?? :)
I got a comment once from this sweet gal, pointing out our EXCELLENT taste in baby names (she also has a daughter named Emersyn Grace). Thank you for the award Keely! I love reading your blog and I think your "Hot and Healthy Challenge" is awesome.....I just need to jump in and participate one of these weeks!
The award comes with strings attached are the rules! :)

* Display the award logo.

* Nominate up to 9 blogs that make you feel comfy or warm inside.

* Link to your nominees.

* Let them know they have been nominated by commenting.

* Link to the person from whom you receieved the award.

Here are my nine blogs, in NO particular order or ranking....

*Thoughts and Whatnots- my sweet bloggy friend reading about her sweet baby boy, her love for her family and the Lord and her amazing photography!!

*The Leaking Window -Sister Sheri is an amazing mentor to me. She inspires me to dive into the Word more and be as good of an example to other women as she is to me. Plus, her 10 year old son is the sweetest boy ever and him and Emersyn are best buds. :)

*My Journey through Motherhood-my BFF's blog. :) Our kids are only a couple months apart in age so it is fun to read what Mr. Riley is up to, knowing Emersyn isn't far behind him. Plus, she has recently taken up cooking as a hobby and is always posting fun recipes that make me hungry while I am reading about them!

*Amore Dolce- I have known this blog's author since she was a little girl, maybe 6 or 7? The Lord has brought her back into my life through some fun circumstances (she is watching Emersyn on Wednesdays now) and I am so happy to read about the lessons that the Lord is showing her during this season of her life.

* I love reading Amy's thoughts on life. She has three small kids and is always writing cute and thought provoking blogs regarding her family and faith.

*Lemonade Makin' Mama- Someday when I grow up, I pray that the Lord would bless me with the quick wit and crafty-ness that Sasha possesses. One can dream right? :) This is the welcome message to her blog: Life often gives us lemons. You can either make lemonade with them, or you can organize 'em. I try to do a little of both around here, and I hope that it refreshes you.- LOVE IT! :)We need more Lemonade Makin' Ladies in our lives, don't we?

*The Crowther's- I went to high school with Jen and have enjoyed reading her blog since I found it. :) She has a great mix of recipes, pictures of her darling little boy and posts with that display her great sense of humor!

*This is Us!- Aimee and I also went to high school and it has been fun to reconnect now that we are both married with babies. I love reading about Aimee's life, half in the US and half in Vienna! I appreciate her insights on parenting and natural living.

*Life's Little Blessings- Sarah and I ALSO went to high school together (geez, lots of those today!) and our daughters are only about a month apart. Sarah is amazing; a marathon runner, getting her master's degree, all the while raising a toddler and blogging about her faith and challenges in life.

Okay ladies, your turn to hand out awards!

Happy Thursday! :)

Well didn't you just make my day brighter. :) Thanks, sweet lady!

Aimee said...

Awwwww, thanks for the acknowledgment! I love reading your blog too! For me, its a great way to connect with other moms. I only have two mom friends here (ha, actually I only have two friends to be honest and one of those is my SIL). It makes me feel a part of the greater mommy community. Emersyn is looking so "grown-up!"
