Stylish Blogger Award!

Here are the rules that come with receiving this award....
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 bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!

Thank you to Jaime & Joanna for giving me this lovely award :)

1. I love frogs. I collect various figurines and stuffed animals (though not as much as I used to).

2. While I have a huge love and want to teach art as soon as possible I used to want to teach music just as badly. Throughout my schooling I participated in music and in art. I was in All County Chorus a variety of times and voted best musician my senior year in high school. I even sang a the Christmas Song (Chesnuts roasting on an open fire...) at a school assembly when I taught art in NC. However, I can't read music LOL so art it is ;)

3. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Alien movies (there are 4) AND the Alien Vs. Predator movies (there are 2). It is a love for science fiction that me and my dad share :)

4. Ok... ugh.... I'll admit it! In High School I was a cheerleader. For football (which is normal) and for Wrestling (haha - yea I know not so normal there LOL).

5. I grew up in a Christian home and became saved at a very young age. I have been attending the same church my entire life pretty much.

6. Given my need for more teaching experience I sometimes get mad that I didn't stay and complete 3 years in my teaching job in NC but then I remember that I met my husband 6 months after I came back and I would NEVER give up my husband for teaching experience!

7. I am pretty much a massive TV lover - I watch FAR too much television - I'm sure I will give it up someday and have to give it up when I have kids but for now it's my guilty pleasure :)

  3. Thank you Jess!! You are so sweet:) I wish we had met for a different reason, but am so glad that I got the chance to know you. Even if it is only through a computer screen. One day we will have to meet in person. You have lifted my spirits so many times that I can't even count. You are an awesome mom to Riley and Peyton and are a truly irreplaceable friend. You are a true blessing in my life.

    ***Thank you babies for bringing your mamas together!!!! We love you all so much!!!***

    Oh, and I thought that I was the only one that can't read music. I am so glad I'm not alone in that either. I was taught, but it never sank in. I would just pretend and the teachers never noticed. I kind of wish they would have now, but oh well.

    Take care Jess. I will be thinking of you and your precious babies and praying for those future rainbows of yours:)
