Aww, shucks...for me?!

So I'm a bit behind on this.  My blogging friend Jessica gave me the Kreativ Blogger award.  The past few weeks my amount of blog traffic has increased, and Jessica is one of my followers now. Her blog is also one that I check in on regularly.  Thanks for thinking I'm a creative blogger! :)
On to the award.  To accept the award though, I have to do a few things....


1-Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2-Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3-Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4-Name 7 things about yourself that people may not know.
5-Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6-Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7-Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they've been nominated.

So here are my seven things...
* I would love to go to Tuscany.
* I was NOT raised on a farm, and still have no clue about what to do here.
* I am a nail biter!  So sad, but true.  Oddly enough, I don't bite my nails when I'm pregnant... weird!
* I have an undying love, addiction call it what you will to Lucky Charms cereal.  Never even tried Lucky Charms until after I delivered Tucker.  So for the past 7 months it has been a necessity in this home.
* I have an addiction to bags.  Diaper bags, purses, totes, I can't help it.  I want every shape, every style, every color, every designer, knock off, I don't care.  I just have to have them.
* I would like to go back to school (when the boys get in school) for nursing.  I would love to work in Labor & Delivery.
* I would like to go on a mission trip to South Africa and work at The Promise House.
I listen to this local station every day and they always talk about The Promise House.  During the Spring I felt the desire to go.  Granted, I knew we did not have the funds for me to do this at this time, but I talked to Travis about it and it is something I want to save up for and eventually one day do.  I have always been told I'm an encourager and a giver and I feel this is something God is telling me I should do. My sister is interested in going with me, so what an experience that would be!!!

Now for the seven bloggers I nominate.

Lesli's blog is always a joy.  I love her outlook and the way she is focused on God's will for her life.
2.  Sonja @ For the Love of Stilettos Sonja's blog makes me smile.  She has great taste, and a great attitude!
3.  Jenna @ Life with the Reynolds Family  Jenna is a good 'ole country gal like myself.  She has an adorable son, and is a great blogger!
4.  Jessica @ The best days with you  She's a bit new to blogging and I'm trying to get her as addicted as I am! ;)  Sisterly love, sisterly love.  Check her out, she needs some fans!  She has a heart of gold.  She and her husband have a love for youth, and plan to work in youth ministry when Kyle graduates in December.
Believe it or not, I know Jessica in real life! :)  We worked together when I was expecting Carter and she Molly.  She recently welcomed baby Luke, just before Tucker arrived.  She is also new to the blogging world and is an EXCELLENT blogger!  She is a Christian stay at home mom, and has two very adorable cuties.  She is also doing photography now, which gives the two of us plenty to talk about!
6. Courtney @ One Fine Wire  Another great read.  She also has a design blog for anyone interested in dolling up their blog.  Her work is beautiful!!!
7.  Heather @ This is the day  There is nothing like finding other moms who believe the same as you.  Heather has a heart for God, her blog is always uplifting!!

Take the time to read these blogs.  Each one is wonderful, and all of the ladies are great!  I'm sure you'll enjoy them!!  Now to those of you nominated, Congratulations!!!

AW! Thank you! You're so sweet! :)

& I admire that you want to do a mission trip! If that is something that is meant for you to do then God WILL make that happen! :)

I love how much we have in common! Speaking of cute bags, you need to check out Karlee Fuchs on Etsy. She is a friend of Becky Higgins (do you know her?), and makes the most awesome bags ever!

Have I mentioned that I was a labor and delivery nurse for one year, back when I was expecting our first baby? I returned to my first love, intensive care, though, and am now a nursing supervisor at the same hospital where I went to nursing school. I strongly encourage you to GO FOR IT! I LOVE being a nurse! It is such a great way to minister to the sick and the hopeless...

Thank you for the award. I am so glad we found each other!
