I Got A New Award!

My friend Christi over at The Journey awarded me with this new award:

The Honest Scrap Blog Award! Thanks Christi for giving me this award. I take this highly as a compliment!
So here are the rules regarding this award:

  • In accepting this award I need to do the following:

  • Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award.

  • Share ten honest things about myself.

  • Present this award to seven others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.

  • Tell those seven people that they have been awarded the Honest Scrap and inform them of the guidelines for receiving their award.
Here are the 10 honest things about myself.

  1. I cannot get woke up in the morning without having a cup of coffee. I tried. . .really I did, but I just can't do it.

  2. I get jealous when my time with my husband gets interrupted. I love being with him and doing things with him.

  3. I am absolutely in love with being a housewife. I think it is the best job ever invented.

  4. I have let God down more in the last six months than I have in the last 10 years.

  5. Sometimes, I just want to stay home on Sundays instead of going to church.

  6. I have a meltdown about once a month when I get overwhelmed.

  7. My kids and my husband are my best friends.

  8. My mother in law and I get along great. She is a great friend to me.

  9. I have to be really careful or I will spend too much money at the store. I have to keep reminding myself that we are on a budget.

  10. I secretly like the way I look, even though I am a little overweight.
So there are my ten things about myself. Now seven of my favorite blogs that have brought me encouragement over the past few months are:

  • Proverbs 22:6 Academy. My friend Ginny has the coolest printable monthy journal calendar. She also has some great thought provoking posts AND I work with her!

  • At The Well. I have been writing from here for a while now. I don't even remember how I found this website, but I LOVE how they help me to be a better wife and mother.

  • Lessons Learned On The Farm. Nancy and I are friends in real life, but before I knew her, I was reading her blog. She and her family are such an inspiration to me!

  • Jesus Loves Mums. Colette and I have been bloggy buddies for a while now and I think I enjoy reading more of what she writes than than my own writings! She is so talented!

  • Reflections of a Face. My friend Hannah is a blessing to me! She is a personal friend that just happens to be a teenager, but she is an awesome one! She also is a great blogging buddy!

  • An Instrument 4 His Glory. Beth and I read each other's blogs regularly, and even though we are states apart, I feel like she is truly a close friend. She is always leaving me sweet notes about something I have written! What a blessing.

  • The Finer Things In Life. My bloggy friend Amy always is posting something that really speaks to my heart.
Thanks Christi for givning me this award! There are so many blogs I would love to give this to, but since I am limited to seven I guess I will just have to choose seven of you!

Jennifer - you truly are a blessing and this was a much needed blessing today!

I always admire your honesty and I just love the admiration that YOU have for your husband. You are an inspiration to all of us wives to love our husbands truly and deeply.

Thank you!
