Many thanks to...

I have receieved several awards over the past two weeks and I need to give a thanks and a shout-out to the lovely ladies who have passed these kind awards to me. {Not to mention, pass them back along to some folks I enjoy reading the most!}

Laura over at "Awake Amidst a Dream" has given me this incredibily CUTE award! This is the first time I have ever even seen this award, so I'm super excited to have received it! YAY! The rules for this award are to not only pass it along, but to list 10 Things that make me happy! This is easy for me...

1. My Jesus: There is absolutely no question that God's love and grace is at the top of this list. I wouldn't be who I am or where I am today if it wasn't for God's unending grace and mercy. No doubt that he is at the top of this list.

2. My hubby: Again, as I've said hundreds upon hundreds of times before, he is the love of my life and my best friend. He makes me smile and makes me laugh. He loves me for who I am and encourages me in all of my dreams. He's a wonderful man with passion and drive and a love for the Lord like no other. He is the only person in the world I can imagine myself being with, and one of two people I can't imagine my life without. {Love you!}

3. My little man: Oh my sweet little boy! What on EARTH did I do without him?! He is the absolute light of my life. He is so much fun and has a personality like no other :) He's rambunctious and is surely going to be a free-spirit. He is the reason I get up in the mornings and he makes me want to be the best that I can be for him. I don't know what I ever did to deserve such an amazing little boy, but I'm surely glad that God blessed me with him.

4. Twitter, Facebook, & My Blog: I don't know where I would be without some sort of social outlet during my long days of mommyhood. I have met a lot of wonderful friends through the internet and I love knowing that no matter what I am going through that I am not alone.

5. Organizing: One day, when I have sold my first book and have plenty of money, I am going to go organizationally insane with bins and labels and all of that utterly fantastic stuff! Organizing makes me smile and it makes me feel better about things. I have always believed that unorganization reflects on the mind.

6. Writing: This could kinda sorta go hand in hand with blogging, but I love it enough to list it seperately. God has finally revealed to me and shown me that he gave me this passion for writing and love for writing for a reason. I can't wait to see what he does with it.

7. Starbucks Venti White Mocha Frappacino's: Enough Said.

8. Fun cell phones: Ok. I admit, I can really be a bit of phone geek. I am facinated by the sheer fact that a teeny tiny little cell phone can do sooo much. I swear, with some of the things they are coming out with now, we are not even going to need computers later on down the road. Verizon just put out the DROID with a 5 mega-pixel camera. Talk about quality for a cell phone! And don't even get me started on the "cool factor" of the iphone. I'm a little peeved that Verizon doesn't have one...yet.

9. Decorating: I can not WAIT until we move again. Hubby has given me FREE REIGN to decorate our new home the way that I please. I love color and fun wall art. You all will have the best time reading my blog next year when we get ready to move and I get to show you all of the before and after pictures I will be taking. Decorating makes me extremely happy.

10. Christmas: My favorite season. I love to decorate, I love the music, I love the food. I love the SMELL and the feel of Christmas. Even though here in Florida, there isn't much "feel" going on. I love the cheeriness in the air and shopping for presents. I love watching Christmas movies. I love that 99.8% of people are generally in a better mood around Christmas time.

Beth P. at "Laugh Until you Cry" has given me these two wonderful awards! Which, is a little tough for me because Beth is one of my favorites and I can't pass it back to her! :) There were no real specifications for these two awards, other than to pass them on.  So, rather than trying to dig up tons and tons of worthy blogs for all three of these awards, I am going to pass ALL THREE on to: {cue really cheesy drumroll noise here, please...}

Mandi at "Capital Heights Mommy"

Melinda at "Coming Clean: Confessions of an Imperfect Parent"

Nicolasa at "Low Expectations"

Jen at "Mommy Brain"

Sheri at "Shades of Pink"

I encourage everyone to head on over and check out these lovely ladies and their fantastic blogs! I could have given these to tons and tons of people, but if I did then there wouldn't be anyone for these ladies to give them to! :) Everyone have a fabulous night, and don't forget to click to vote for me on "Top Mommy Blogs." Just for your convenience, I have added the button below each and every post.
