Wow! Kimme from Full Circle has bestowed upon me the Queen of All Things Awe-Summm award. And just so happens that Miss Bliss from chocolate shoes and coffee (my absolute fav things) has given me the same award . Awwww....
So, in acceptance of the award, I better do as Miss Bliss says. ;)
7 reasons I'm awe-summm:
1 - I'd do anything for the people I love. Most specifically Mr. Fix-It and the kiddos, but also including both our extended families. And The Everythings. And even old, old friends. Like spending all of this holiday weekend in OK for an old college friend's wedding. More on that to come. (Hey, I said I'd do anything.... but not that I wouldn't comment on it!)
2 - I love, love to do semi-homemade projects and recipes - then share them with all my time-starved friends!
3 - If you'll let me, I'd throw a party for anyone. For any reason. If you're in need of a party, call/email me. ;) I'll throw you one! As long as it can have a theme....
4 - Even though I don't know what I'm doing half the time... I think I'm a good mommy, based mostly on how much I love my kids. I want them to grow up to be people that do the right thing. And I think that starts by saying 'yes, ma'am' or 'yes, sir.'
5 - Being able to turn some of my weaknesses into strengths. I'm prob THE least patient person in the world. Yet, at work, I'm known as a super patient, overly optimistic girl who is ready to help anyone and give anyone a second chance. My current situation may be really, really testing this.... but I'm trying to hang on!
6 - Before I got pregnant with Big Sis, I wouldn't have been caught dead on a web board, blog, etc.... and wouldn't have known what to do if I WAS there. But now... some of the moms and friends I've met have been some of the most important gals in my life. True friends. Some for 4 years now. Awe-summ!
7 - I'm busy. And I complain about it. BUT.... as Mrs. Everything is always quick to point out... I'm eternally optimistic that as soon as I get past the next work deadline/party/project/MOVE!/any other fill-in-the-blank.... that I'll be fine and have a second to sit on the couch. And it never happens. But I never quit believing. ;)
And I tag these other Queens of Awe-Summ:
6. Ellen, my sis.... maybe this will convince you to start a blog?
7. And Jess - watch for me to introduce y'all to her new Etsy store SOON!
