{stylish blogger award}

This may seem kind of silly, but I was given this wonderful award by Mary Pat Seihl. She is one of my lovely followers, and I follow her blog as well :) I feel so grateful and excited to receive this award. It really means a lot to me especially since I'm still pretty new to blogging in general.

Here are the rules for receiving and accepting this special award:

1). Thank and link back to the person who awarded you
2). Share 8 things about yourself
3). Pay it forward to 8 bloggers that you've recently discovered
4). Contact those bloggers and tell them about their awards

Eight things about me:
1. I was born in Landstuhl, Germany. It was still considered West Germany when I was born.
2. I currently use the Pink ATG, and I love it.
3. I survived Thanksgiving night at ToyRus last week. It was hell-acious, and I will NEVER do it again. Try 30 minutes in line in the bitter freezing cold, then finding the items in a very crowded store, and then waiting in the check out line for over an hour!!
4. I want to have another baby girl and soon, but it won't be happening until the time is right. I need to finish my schooling first.
5. I've been from a size 00 to a size 12, and all the sizes in between. I am currently a size 2 and very thankful that I finally fit back into my skinny jeans.
6. I want to dye my hair blond, but I just don't have the gumption to do it.
7. I love, love, love these movies - Little Women, Anne of Green Gables, Marie Antoinette, the Duchess, Sense & Sensibility, Pride & Prejudice, Vanity Fair... do you see a trend?
8. I love helping others. I love being a teacher, and I love caring for other people. It brings me to tears most nights while I pray for the less fortunate. I am so richly blessed that I rarely pray for myself but always for the welfare of others especially my family and people I know who are struggling. I always, always pray for the children of the world, that they may find love, adoration, warmth, nutrition, shelter and gifts throughout their upbringing. I hope that their lives may not be riddled with abuse and neglect, and that they may overcome oppression in their young lives.

So that's it for now. I will update with another blog today about who I am divvying out my awards to :)

Your welcome Sue!! I wanted to give out something a bit Xmas-y and well I had all this paper lying around that I wasn't using. I had the trim from last Xmas, and the Thickers matched, so I just threw it all together in a package. Little did I know that it would've been cheaper to ship had I just got one of those priority boxes :) LOL, but that's alright I'm glad you loved your goodies.
