STYLISH BLOGGER AWARD

I am so blessed! I received the Stylish Blogger Award from three people last week. I feel like Sally Field who said "You like me, you really like me," in 1985, accepting her second Oscar in five years.

I received the first one from Katina at Peaceful Divas whose blog is awesome and dedicated to helping women navigate life's necessary, yet not so glamorous, tasks with style and the realization of God's Grace!

The second one I received from Jamie at Forget-me-not, Oh Lord! which was actually given to me on my For Your Tears blog. (I decided to do one post here) Jamie is a born again Christian, the mother of an adorable toddler and also the mother of an angel in Heaven.

The third one is from Joanna from Pregnancy, Miscarriage & Life with Chronic Pain. She also has a baby in Heaven and has been suffering with chronic pain for almost a decade. She could certainly use and appreciate your prayers. This was also given to me on For Your Tears.

Thank you Katina, Jamie and Joanna, I appreciate you thinking of me when you passed this award forward.

The rules for accepting this award are:

1. Thank & link back to the person who awarded you this.
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Pay it forward to 10-15 recently discovered great bloggers.
4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about their award.
  1. Even though I am pretty lazy around the house I definitely have OCD when it comes to blogging. I am looking for balance but haven't found it yet. We just might have our Christmas decorations up all year because of this thing called blogging!

  2. I have two beautiful grown children who are both in love and that just makes me so happy. Our daughter is married almost 9 years to our wonderful son-in-law and our son lives with the love of his life. (we love her too! )

  3. We have no other relatives in Southern California so we are really lucky that we like each other, or should I say that we are blessed to have children who actually like hanging with their parents.

  4. For those of you who are newer to my blog I am my husbands first & third wife!

  5. I watch movies that I love over & over again. I have many favorites and will concentrate on several at a time. If it is a favorite I just can't get enough of it! I guess it's kind of like those of you with little children who have to watch Cars or Toy Story a million times a day. By the way, those are favorites of mine too! Am I in my second childhood?

  6. I ended up buying the "for dummies" book for my Canon Rebel since I am just not liking the pictures I take with it. Can you really teach an old dog new tricks? I certainly hope so!

  7. I have a exercise glider in my office that I never use but it does a wonderful job at collecting dust!

So if you know me well you will know that I am not passing this award on because I just don't like having to make a choice, it's like picking people to play on your team in gym, it's just too much pressure for me. I love everyone who follows me and appreciate the fact that you actually come back for more!

Ah, gym equipment! Don't start on that! I have been paying to go to a gym for nearly three years now (and I only went for about two months!)

Leslie said...

Congratulations! I have a treadmill in my basement that does an awesome job of air drying the comforters that I put on it! :)

Joyce said...

Do you like your camera in general? I am beginning to research cameras as we need something new and better and there are so many choices.

Congrats on your award..we watch our favorite movies again and again here.

I am THRILLED to know that there is a Canon Rebel book for Dummies...I am checking in to that today...I got one this past fall and I must admit I am a little afraid of it! Thanks for the heads up!

I was my first husband's first and second wife! I'm staying with the third....he's the charm!

It's so great to be friends with your children. :)

I love your #5. I do the same thing. Sometimes I put them in my portable DVD player and listen to them why I go to sleep. I don't need to look because I have seen them so many times.

Technodoll said...

I'm with you on the favorite movies - and like they say, you have to grow older but growing up is optional ;-)

Wheeeee!

Congrats on the lovely award, if someone deserves it it's most certainly YOU! :-)

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

You are so deserving....You brighten my days so often...Happy Sunday

Norwegian Phoenix said...

Congratulations! You deserve it! I've been lurking around here for a while and love your blog. Love your comment about the Sally Field quote too, I got this award recently and felt the same way.

I'm glad to know there's a Dummies book for the Rebel as well. I've been in the market for a Rebel for a while now(although I'm enjoying my point and shoot while I'm saving for it). I'll definitely have to get that. I love giraffes as well!

Have a great weekend!

Laura said...

I so want a Rebel! My mom has one adn I love it! I love my point and shoot for the great zoom and the movies it can take- but there is nothing quite like that Rebel!! My mom ended up taking a class for her's. I need to go take a class to learn what I can do with my mac... :-P

Michelle said...

Congratulations on your award.
I love visiting your blog.

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Debby, your blog looks great! I love the polka dot background and header and the colors. Congratulations on your award. I'm laughing about your glider. I have an exercise bike that always has some of my clothes hanging on it! I didn't know you were married to your husband twice! Let me know if the "for the dummies" book is helpful. I might need to order one of those for my camera. laurie

Trish said...

Congratulations on the Awards...I love you background design and header!
My recumbant bike is also catching dust! Wish I could motivate myself to get on the thing! I walk past it everytime I do laundry...LOL.

secret agent woman said...

Congratulations! #4 was definitely news to me!

Ginny Marie said...

I'm not new to your blog, but I always learn new things about you! ;) You are a most stylish blogger -- and just as gracious as Sally Field!

Congrats on your awards!!

We watch the same favorite movies over and over, too. One of our top picks is My Cousin Vinny. Love Legally Blonde, Erin Brockovich. One of the granddaughter's that we like is called Stick It about a bunch of girls competing in gymnastics (it's not called gym-nice-tics!)

Hilary said...

First and third wife... That is pretty cool. It is wonderful that you love both of your kids significant others...you are very lucky!
