I was awarded a few, yes a few, blog awards from another blogger I so admire! (and she's a Texas girl)! I love her website and check it everyday to see if there are new posts! So, thanks Tanya! First up is this one:

Isn't she adorable!? When Tanya told the blog world she loves my blog, it was awesome! I am a newbie of sorts at the blog thing, I have been on many message boards, but never put my not-so-exciting life out there for all the world to see. Mostly I started it because a few people egged me on and it's an easy way to keep up with friends! It is fabulous to be recognized and it's going to be even more fun to introduce you to some of my faves! (BTW - you'll recognize a few, only because they are on Tanya's list too so it shows we have good taste!) If I could I'd list every blog I read daily because I love them all, but I can't do that in one sitting! So all of you listed below:

1. Cracker Scraps - Jan, my buddy pal, sweet peach from Florida. We are online scrappin buds, ScrapJammie girls, that have gotten together every year(and then some) to scrap, laugh and eat chocolate! wub u!
2. Sitting On My Back Porch- Rachel - she is one of the ones that got me into this crazy blog world and her blog has the cutest craftiest things! Plus, she has the cutest kids that make alot of posts! Love ya girl, Cheers!

3. Julie's Life - JLB, my A+, crazy red-headed, New Yawk transplant! We have never met IRL, but I'd bet we'd be great together! Her blog is like the Weather Channel alot! She also shows off her cutie daughter too! Peace and Cheers to you too!
4. My Blogsong - Linda, she's my "old hippie" friend, her words not mine! We have never met IRL either, but one of these days! She is the Link Queen. If we ever need something, anything, Linda is the go-to gal! Cheers, hun!

5. A Day In the Life - Dana, first off, has the cutest little guy, he is the star of her blog. She is one of the best bloggers I know, posts almost everyday! I have met Dana IRL too, she's one of the ScrapJammies girls!

6. We Are THAT Family - Kristen, she's a new friend whose blog I look at everyday and can't wait to see what kind of hilarity or inspiration she has in store for me! Thanks for the daily pick me ups!

7. Forgetfulone - she is a new blog friend that is a Houston girl too and we have yet to meet, but one day! I love reading her blog because she is from around here and I recognize things in her posts and we can compare sweet teas and apple pies!!

8. My Life is Based on a True Story - D - she is also new blog friend and a Houston girl too! Maybe we'll meet and have some good apple pie with Forgetfulone! Her kids are a little older than my DS, so I get some "advice" if you will from some of her posts!

9. Mother, Daughter, Sister, Friend...Me - well, Bubba's Sis.. what can you say, she is a riot and a Houston girl. She has a son in the Naval Academy, and I think that is awesome! DH wants our son to go there... someday! It's partly her fault I do some of these Meme's...thanks! ;)

10. this is reverb - Pastor Ryan, he is awesome and probably doesn't even know I exist. But I love his blog because he's a man that isn't ashamed to tell of his love for Jesus, his wife and gorgeous daughter! He is a crazy, rocker type, cooking, tattooed, husband and father and I admire him!

Next up is a very special one! If you or anyone you know has ever thought about organ donation, and I know it's not a fun subject, but don't think about it, do it! You don't need to have perfectly good organs buried with you, you aren't using them anymore! I know two people who have received the greatest and most unselfish gifts, one a kidney and one a lung. They are living proof that this is a remarkable thing to do and the families that give are angels!

This award was created by Memoirs of a Mommy. It’s a very special award that she created in Honor Of The Donor That Saved (her son) Noah’s Life. Noah received a heart transplant, and she hopes that by passing this award around the blogosphere everyone can help raise awareness of the need for Organ Donation.
The rules of this award are: SHARE THE LOVE!!! Share this award with all those blogs out there that you love. All the people who make you smile. All those that make you laugh. All those that make your day. All those that leave uplifting comments on your blog.
**All I ask, is that you include a link to this post with the award and ask your recipients to do the same**

Again, some will look familiar! ;)

and last but not least...
brilliant? me thinks not, but thanks so much! I'm passing it onto some of my blog mentors! Once again...
After all that, I feel so loved and hope y'all will too! Hugs and see ya soon!

I think I forgot to say thank you! Imagine that. We really have to find a time to scrapbook. I have been so so so so busy with work and getting the kids back in their school routine, but later this month... Hopefully!
