A belated Thank You!

I just have been overwhelmed with the love I have recieved over the past couple of weeks.   You all are awesom, I just wanted to let you know that! 
I have been blown away to be nominated for three blog awards!
The beautiful *M* at A Miracle 4 Us gave me for the I <3 This Blog Award!

And KK's Mom gave me the Cherry on Top award!

And then Amanda and Jamie nominated me for the Stylish Blogger Award!

If I missed anything and you have nominated me as well, a big Thank You to you too!

The conditions of these awards are pretty similar...I am suppposed to share a few things about myself then pass along the awards to a certain number of bloggers I have recently discovered.  In all honesty, I have a hard time keeping up with everyone I "follow" now so I have been trying not to add too many new blogs right now.  Between working, keeping up with the house, the adoption and my Project 365, my plate is pretty full!

So instead of nominating newly discovered bloggers, I'm going to cheat...but first, let me share some random facts about myself...

*I am a Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator and signed up with them to make cards, but over the past 5 years I have really turned more to scrapbooking and have a terrible time getting cards of any kind out in a timely manner.

*I hate might remember why...

*My favorite cake is red velvet.

*I don't know how to really swim and I wont get in the lake with out a life jacket on and I wont go into the deep side of a pool.  I know.  Lame, right?  Ethan is a much better swimmer than I.

*My hubby and I love Dave Ramse.y and striving for Financial Peace.

*I am a licensed social worker.

*I started working when I was sixteen and have only had about three months in my life since when I did not have a job.  I've worked as everything from a pharmacy tech, to a jewelry sales associate, to a personal trainer, to a theatre assistant tech director, to a house keeper, to the site-supervisor of an afterschool program.  Plus a few more thrown in there.

*I would love more than almost anything to stay at home with the kids for a couple of years when we bring our daughter home from Korea to homeschool and be a SAHM or even a WAHM.

*I have the bedroom suite that my Grandmother bought when my granparents got married 61 years ago.  She got a job at a dry cleaners and save for a long time to purchase the 3 peice set and it cost her $200.

OK, so here's the part I'm cheating on.  If any of you haven't recieved one of these rewards and are following some great blogs that need some encouragement, send and email to the address on the sidebar and I will come back and edit this post to nominate you for the award you request so you can send it on to another blogger!

Thanks again you sweet ladies!!!
