A Whole Lot of Thank Yous

Lyryn and Angie:

Thanks to Lyryn's kind heart, I was blessed to participate in a fundraiser/giveaway for a bloggy friend of hers, Angie. Angie and her husband are on a mission to adopt a precious little girl from China and need some bloggy love/help with their financial endeavors on this journey.  I participated in this giveaway, and won a beautiful hobo bag from Angie's Etsy shop, FosterKade!  Check it out:

It's HUGE, and I love it! We decided to stick Fenway in it, just to see.  He fit with plenty of room, but he didn't like the idea of being a purse dog.  I guess I'll just have to sport my really awesome bag without my fur baby.  
Thank you so much Angie for this beautiful bag, and thank you Lyryn for giving me the blessing to give to this great family! 

Tatiana gave me this really sweet Kreativ Blogger award tonight! Tatiana has been such a sweetheart to me ever since she found my blog a few weeks ago, and has always left me such encouraging comments when I made a less than positive post.  I recommend you check out her blog! She always posts beautiful Bible verses, and such great fashion taste! She has quite a bit of everything on her blog, it is such a great read! Thank you!!

So the rules for this award are:
1-Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2-Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3-Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4-Name 7 things about yourself that people may not know.
5-Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6-Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7-Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they've been nominated.

Seven Things You May Not Know About Me:
1. I wish every day to be back in Mexico, on my honeymoon with my husband.  But I DO NOT wish to relive wedding planning.
2.  I used to be an incredibly confrontational individual and am now the complete opposite if it can possibly be helped. (See Number 3) 
3. I am extremely protective of my friends and family.  Confrontations cannot be helped if those individuals are involved.
4.  I am seriously, 100%, petrified of the dark.  I cannot go into a dark room without first turning on the lights.
5. I have no idea what my natural hair color is anymore.
6.  Although I know my husband loves me dearly, nothing in the world makes me feel more loved than the surprised gasp and smile Riley gives me when I come visit her.  Her hugs and kisses are a close second place.
7. I find that the Quote of the Day on my iPod is 99% accurate with what is going on in my life at that moment.

The seven blogs I am giving this award to are: Christine, Shannon, Amy, Angie, Emily, Katie, and Katie! (Yes, I know there are two Katies, and yes, they are two different bloggy friends of mine!)

To all of my bloggy readers:
All of you have left such encouraging words in my comments over the past few days, and I appreciate them all so much.  I apologize to you all for having such a negative attitude lately, but you all have been so sweet to me! Thank you for being so sweet and understanding! I love you all!

Have a beautiful night, everyone! I promise to resume with much happier posts now! :)

Ok, so I've got a few things: That dog of yours is so, so cute! I love that fun bag he's in!
I also so badly wish I was on my honeymoon, if not everyday, at least every week! And also, no one better mess with my friends and family, or else...
It was so fun getting to know those things about you. Thanks for participating :)
