Oh. My. Word.

I am so overwhelmed by bloggy love right now!

Our list of ~My Husband Rocks!~ Friday participants grew a TON this week! (Can you believe how long it is?!!?! I am floored!)

And, I have received FOUR new blog awards! I started this little blog less than a month ago thinking that my family members and maybe some close friends would read it to kep up with our "adventures," and give me the obligatory "hey, read your blog the other day . . ." every now and again. I have made so many fabulous friends and am daily encouraged by the shared laughs and ideas and hurts and triumphs of people all over the world brought together through the "magic" of the Internet. Yes, it can be a scary place at times, but I love this side of it, so thank you all, from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to visit my little corner and share your comment love :).

My sweet, sweet blog friend Alex absolutely made my day with this little baby:


Alex keeps up with three blogs, and she is one of the most kind, talented and driven people I "know."

I received the following award twice! Once from Amanda Jo and again from Kate. Both of these ladies join us for MHR, and their blogs are just fabulous every other day of the week, too! :)


This award has rules:

1. Please put the logo on your blog.
2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.
3. You must nominate 7 fellow bloggers for this award.
4. Add links to the recipients.
5. Leave a comment so the recipients know they have received an award.

It's always hard for me to select just a few blogs to distribute these awards. I read soooooo many blogs, and they're all so special, but I shall do my level best to select some of the tippy tops! :)

~ Fellow former Colorado Springsian Lee at New To This Farm Stuff
~ The ultra-talented Layla (who is also a crazy remodeler) at The Lettered Cottage
~ Sweet and beautiful Tanja over at On that note...
~ Rachel, my fabulous Aussie friend shares Rachel's Journal Pages
~ Very cute and amazingly wise Emily at chatting at the sky
~ Alex, who is so strong and wonderful to read writes My Quill and Pen
~ My brand new blog friend Jennifer who is Simply "Jenn"-sational

These are in no order of worthiness or my preference as they are all fantastic!

And last but not least, Alex gave me another award just yesterday:


Isn't it cute?!!?!

Crazy days! Busy weekends! Hope all is well with you and yours!
