Blog Award

Thank you to AZMom who passed this award along to me. She is one of the people there to lend a listening ear when I need it and really do appreciate it!

So now for the rules that I stole off AZMom's blog because I am way to lazy to type them out:

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find friends 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 will be 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 now I have to pick 8 people, huh?

Shana - I think I have given her enough awards for you all to know why, but I'll say it again. Shana has been there since the beginning and is such a sweet person. She is always there to listen & isn't afraid to tell me the truth. She checks on me if I haven't posted for a while & watch out if she needs to vent because she is not afraid to do that either...I just love her.

Amy - Amy & I have been reading and commenting on each others blogs for a while, but in the last few months we have realized that we have a ton in common. Medically we could write a book with all we've been through and it is all so similar. With the meds for the narcolepsy making me have some side effects Amy is the first one I went to because she has been on the meds that I am on now. She has helped me more than she knows. She is also constantly e-mailing me when I haven't posted for a few days, just to check up.

Stephanie - Let me see where to start. I think we are sisters separated at birth with how much we think alike. I'm telling you people, it is SCARY!!! Stephanie is such a thoughtful person and always puts others first. Take for instance she is pregnant with her 3rd child. We have talked about other, less happy things before, but with her pregnancy she didn't tell me until I read it on her blog. Then she e-mails me and says, "I know you are going through a lot & I wanted to tell you, but I didn't want it to seem like I was rubbing it in." So I told her I'm not that kind of person and I'd forgive her this time and all was well...isn't she thoughtful though? Now go over and send some congratulations her way!

KC - Boy is she struggling to keep her kids healthy. I hope they all get better soon & you get to the root of the problem quickly. KC is a great person to help you weather the storm too. She always leaves such kind comments and will have a bible verse for just about anything, just ask. She is a sweetheart who deserves this.

Jennie - Can't say anything except she cracks me up!

Shane - I am going to introduce you to Shane. She is a distant (in more ways than one) cousin of mine. She has 3 incredible boys and one of them is not afraid to tell you how smart he is and he shouldn't be, let me tell you the kid is a genius. All 3 of her kids are so cute and so sweet even though we don't get to see them as often as we'd like, it's like no time has passed when we do get back together. So Shane, welcome to blogging, it's addicting I'll warn you. Everyone go leave Shane a comment and let her know you were there checking her out (***insert sexy whistling here***)

Ashley - Ahhh, I have written about Ashley so much and then she goes and starts her own blog a couple months ago. Good thing she doesn't keep up with it too often so I still get to tell the good stories about her. I have told you all what a wonderful friend/extended family member she is and so noone deserves this more than her. She is that awesome! And she's coming down tonight until Sunday---that is very exciting.

Janice - She is a very interesting person. She blogs about everything under the sun. Her kids (2 very cute little girls, one named Taylor), moving from Utah to Kentucky and the changes in that situation, running and training for marathons and the list goes on and on. Her blog is definitely worth checking out and I don't think she has a mean thing to say about anyone or anything.

If I didn't pass this on to you, it's nothing personal...I could only pick 8 you know? So you should go check out the ones I did pass it on to though and see why I think they are great. Happy blog hopping.
