No Your Fabulous!!!!!

I have been trying to catch up on my blog reading lately. And as I was surfing one of my fav's of ALL TIME, I found this award . . .

that she designated to five of her fav blogs and she included me in that. I was so excited. Let me just say that I am now convinced after reading five of her fav's that we were separated at birth. (more explanation in a moment :-)
I would first just like to thank Em, personally, on this blog for her kindness during this season in our lives. She has called and sent cards and most importantly been a prayer warrior for us. She has let God lead her and has been obedient to that call. She phoned me the other evening, and unbeknowst to her, I was having "a moment". You know the one ~~ breaking down because, well just because I can't paint my toe nails right now and because Christmas is coming and Thanksgiving is upon us and well, yeah, just because. And in the midst of my "moment" Em called and talked me out of my sniffling, ugly, crying spell, and I don't even think she realized it. I so appreciate your friendship. Thank you for this sweet award, it is a welcome distraction to what is going on today: Staples out and PT ~~ now I am happy about both, it just starts another painful part of recovery ~~ BRING IT ON!!!!!
So what is this one about ~~ let me post the rules:
The rules of accepting this reward are that you have to list 5 favorite addictions and then pass along this award to five other fabulous blogs!
1. Now to the part where we were seperated at birth: DARK CHOCOLATE!!!!!
Dark Chocolate just rocks this little ones world ~~ OH YES IT DOES!!!!! And I'm with Em, I'll even settle for the Hershey's Special Dark when necessary ~~ MMMM!!!!! One of my fav DC bars is from our local health food store. I don't know the name of the company, but they have animals on the front of the bar, and one of my fav's in this brand is the Panda Bear ~~ Dark Chocolate bar with dried cherries ~~ be still my heart.
2. Right now, in this season, a current addiction is ICE PACKS!!!!! They keep my knee under their control and me in bliss, covered up on my couch with my knee packed in ice. Oh yes ~~ it is nice!!!!!
3. It goes without saying if you have read my blog at all, but I am addicted to teenagers ~~ one in particular gets my goat ~~ yep Dak~~ And currently he is sitting along side me surfing Itunes on hubs laptop and he just got through seranading me with "Footloose" ~~ Yes the Footloose song from the movie (is there any other), yes the movie I walked out on in the '80's. They are singing it in a production he's involved in with his Chamber Choir in February. Kickin' it old school ~~ Love this kid!!!!!
4. COOKBOOKS ~~ Okay so this maybe an unhealthy addiction :-) My idea of a good time is sitting on my couch surrounded by my MANY cookbooks or cooking magazines (new and old) and reading, yep reading, just like a good book. I love to peruse them and dream of what this recipe will look like and taste like. I love it!!! Yes I know sad really~~
5. Wow I'm at the last one for this segment of five (just five huh?) ~~ I am addicted to my husband ~~ is that weird? Seriously, I think I'm a stalker :-) I love to watch him with Sky ~~ it is true bliss ~~ I love to watch him hang out with Dak ~~ I love to watch him watch me ~~ I just love him!!!!! He is by far, the kindest, most genuine person I know. He is truly ALL THAT!!!!!
So this concludes five of my five gazillion addictions!!!!! :-)
And now to passing this along: So I have so many more than five fav blogs, but I do want to pass this along to: Heather L.A.S.S. ~~ Meredith ~~ Laura ~~ Linda ~~ and Betsy ~~ I love ALL these blogs and so many more. These ladies so inspire me and lift me up with their enthusiasm for life and their love for Jesus!! Ladies YOU ROCK!!!
Thanks again Em, for this much needed island of fun, in this ocean of craziness!!!!!
Have a Blessed day,


  1. You are totally FABULOUS!!!


  2. Congratulations on your award!! You are just precious and I am praying for you and your continued recovery. I hope this week goes well and y'all have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. I think we MAY have possibly been separated at birth! Are the DC bars you're talking about maybe the Endangered Species Organic bars? If so, I know exactly what you are talking about. YUM!

    I also love cookbooks & cooking magazines and I, too, read them from cover to cover when I get one. Great minds think alike, huh?

    It was so good to talk to you the other night and I am glad that I rescued you from a "moment". You don't know it, but you did the same for me, just as you have done many times with your very timely E-cards or emails.

    I'm so glad that all those staples are out and PT has begun. I'm praying for a fast and complete recovery for you and thank you so much for all of your kind words. I love you, friend!

  4. Hi Dawn - Thanks for the award! I will be posting my addictions soon - although you already know about my pumpkin-chocolate-chip bar addiction! :) I'm glad you are back in blog world and pray the recovery is going well.


  5. Congrats on your award! You totally deserve it. I am praying for you, friend. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Enjoy not doing most of the cooking!! Love you!

  6. You totally deserve this award and thank you for passing it to me!
