Be The Blog

Bridget from Miles to Go Before We Sleep
gave me the following award:

Be The Blog award

Mark from Me And My Drum, who created this badge has this to say, "This badge is for bloggers who make their blogs their own, stay with it, interact with their readers, and have fun!"
I was shocked to receive this award, especially since I've practically been MIA in the blogger world lately. Thank you, Bridget, for this lovely award. I will display it proudly!

I now give the award to: (in no specific order)

Julia at: My Adventures and Antics

Emily Elizabeth at: Lovely and Amazing and Gabriel's Heart

June at: The Burnett Clan in CO

Jennyhaha at: Jennyhaha's Flawed and Disorderly

Melissa at: Adventures of an Awesome (sometimes) Mother

Chelle at: Crazy Thoughts

Jenny at: On Grace, God, being a spouse, mother, daughter, sibling, teacher, barista, and being myself throughout life
(who should also get an award for the longest blog name!)

Go and visit their blogs and see why I think they deserve the award. These women have not only influenced my life in a positive way but have also become my friends. I don't get to always read every single post of theirs but it's due to lack of time. Every word is worth reading and their photos are great too!

I Love..... Karl

This week's theme is I Love ____ and out of all the people I love,
chose to focus on my husband of 22 years... KARL

He is an awesome husband. He is even enclosing our carport to make a craft room just for ME!

He framed the bay window all by himself - the window didn't come with instructions so he looked online and figured out how to do it himself! Here he is showing off the framing of the bottom of the bay window before he covered it up.

He is such a good dad... he even goes to Disney Princess on Ice and lets his daughter cast a spell on him with a wand he bought her while at the show.

He is very active in the boy scouts with his sons. He got the pin when Austin received his 1st Class last month.

He even spends time with his daughter when she is in the hospital. Karl stayed over night one night when I had a migraine. He did a really good job taking care of Jessica.

I couldn't have ever asked for a better husband. I am so very blessed to have him by my side for 22+ years. He tells me that he loves me and that I'm beautiful every single day.

What does your handwriting say about you?

What Your Handwriting Says About You

You are a fairly energetic person. You know how do pace yourself, and you deal well with stress.

You are somewhat outgoing, but you're not a natural extrovert. You think first before you act. You tend to be independent, rational, and logical.

You are extravagant, over the top, and indulgent. You set trends and influence people.

You need a bit of space in your life, but you're not a recluse. You expect people to give you a small amount of privacy, and you respect their privacy as well.

You are somewhat traditional, but you are also open to change. You listen to your head and your heart.

You are a good communicator. You work hard to get your ideas across effectively.
