Sharing the love of my 1st award...

Lana and Paula of Cookies by Paula both awarded me with my first award ever!!!  I was so, so excited!  I am just now getting around to revealing my award and passing it on because I have been a little busy lately and I feel terrible!  So, please forgive me....I totally appreciate it and I am so glad that you both thought of me.  

I started this blog so that my close friends and family could keep up with us and our progress with the pregnancy....never in a million years did I ever, ever think that over ten thousand people would have looked at my blog!!!  It makes me happy to know people enjoy reading it because I love updating it(even though I've been doing a horrible job of that lately) and sharing our little life with anyone who cares! :)  So, thank you so much Lana and girls are the BEST!

"This award is bestowed on to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

So, I am passing this award to these lovely ladies: 

1. Andrea-This girl and I go WAY back....I mean over 20 years and that's saying a lot considering I am only 25. ha:)  She is super sweet and is super successful.  She is the very talented photographer who took our maternity and newborn pictures and we love her dearly.

2. April-I went to high school with April and she is one of the sweetest and kind people I have ever known.  I have never heard her say anything bad about anyone and I just love reading her is so uplifting and encouraging.  Her and her husband are in the procoss of adopting a little boy from Taiwan

3. Amber-I also went to school with Amber and she is also one of the sweetest girls I know.  She got married the same month as Brandon and I and then her son was born about 6 months before Harper.  She has a beautiful little family and I love keeping up with her through her cute blog.

4. Tabetha-Tabetha and I also go way back.  We have been great friends since our freshman year and I love her to death.  We worked together during high school and we share many, many fond (and funny) memories.  She is kinda the reason I started blogging.  I looked at a bunch of other people's, but when I started keeping up with hers, I thought that was a great way to keep in touch.

5. Annette-Annette is April's mom and she is my best commenter! LOL  She is so, so sweet and she is always checking on us and Miss Harper and we deeply appreciate it.  She is expecting her first grandson VERY soon and I love reading all of her updates.

6. Tara-Personally, I don't know her...but I read her blog, and I know that if I did, we would be great friends! ha:)  She has the best attitude and outlook on life and I enjoy reading all of her uplifting and funny stories.  She also has a beautiful baby boy and I enjoy seeing all of his super cute pictuers.

7. Brandie-Brandie and I met when I ordered an awesome canvas from her....let me tell you, this girl is super talented.  I love checking her blog and seeing all of her new creations.  She is so sweet and great to work with.

8. Natasha-This is another blogger that I do not know personally, but we keep up with each other through bloggy land.  She is also super talented and makes all kinds of cute jewelry and AWESOME cakes.  I will definitely be calling her in the future to make some cakes for us.  You must check out her blog.

Now, go check them out for yourselves!

Thank you Kara, that is so sweet of you to mention me. I do love to check on you and Miss Harper and I can't wait to get together with you and Miss Harper so we can introduce her and Mr. Tuff. HeHe.

Kara that is really sweet. I love reading your blog. I promise I will update soon. LOL. And I totally agree. Knowing that someone is actually reading what you publish is it's own little reward...

Brandie said...

That is so sweet, Kara. Thank you for all of the kind words. I truly enjoy checking your blog and seeing what your beautiful family is up to. I agree with Tabetha that knowing that people are reading what you publish is a special reward. Thank you.
