(forever ago!) Please excuse my tardiness in thanking Katie for my prize! Katie over at Bless This Nest hosted a giveaway for the SITS Spring Fling (see I said I was tardy!) Katie hosted a giveaway of a JPATPURSES Little Zip Pouch, and I won! It's great! It arrived and I was super excited! It's my first giveaway WIN! Yay!!! So thank you, thank you, thank you, Katie!! Everyone please stop by her blog and check it out.
Also while I am thanking people and accepting things, before I become dismally late on acceptance and thanking I want to thank Juls over at Every Day Is a Crazee Scott's Day for the following awards! I greatly appreciate them all and want to say she is so deserving of all of them because I love her blog! She makes me laugh on a regular basis! Please stop by her corner of the world and check them out!
Now to give these awards away! Since Juls doesn't follow rules very well, there were none passed onto me in giving them away (whew!) and so I am free to do as I wish! Woohoo! I think I'll give each to one person in hopes to showcase their blog to my readers and shed light on their blog.
To Lori at Livin' in a Fishbowl I give the Mom of the Year Award! Her struggle with infertility and now with the contested adoption makes my heart ache and triumph for her in her strength all at the same time. She has gone through and IS going through so much with Matthew's adoption being contested, she's just an amazing woman. She loves her children without question and will do ANYTHING for them. Please stop by her blog and congratulate her and pray with her, you can grab her button Praying for Matthew's Future (which you see on my right side bar) from her page as well.
To Thuy, Kacey, and Francesca at Three Bay B Chicks I give Kreative Blog Award! They are always coming up (along with Hot Chocolate Caramel Mocha who I also bestow this award to) with GREAT new ideas for the bloggy world. TBBC and HCCM hosted Where's Wenda and now there's a new exciting feature in the blogosphere which is Chick Chat! It just makes everything abuzz with excitement and I think it's so innovative and great. They are very deserving. Go and check out what Chick Chat is all about!
To Dee at Two of a Kind, Working on a Full House I give I Heart Your Blog. I do heart her blog! Not only does she have amazing giveaways, but I love her posts too and the pictures of her son are adorable! She has a little girl on the way and I'm excited for her. Stop by and check out some of her amazing giveaways too! She also has Mr. Linky set up to showcase a TON of giveaways around the blogosphere and a Mr. Linky for Entrecards!
Now please stop by their blogs to congratulate them, or merely to check out their great pages!
