Lemonade baby!


I was given this blog award by a kind friend. I don't always succeed at making lemonade out of lemons (ask my hubby)... but I'm trying! The best part about getting this award is being able to pass it on, and gush about people I care about. Unfortunately I can only select 5, but there are so many others who are so deserving... anyway, here goes...

1. Jill- is a dear friend. She is one of those extremely loyal people who show up at your doorstep with cough drops, and herbal tea within five minutes of learning that you're sick. She is also the kind of friend who drops off homemade banana bread when she senses that you're a little depressed. She is the kind of friend who is genuinely happy for other people's successes. Her blog is full of great ideas for family fun... and scrumptious recipes.


2. Julie is an amazingly positive person that I so admire. We both had each of our 4 kids at around the same time, and I just feel a special bond with her because she knows how crazy life can be with kids at these ages. I just love her, and sooo wish we lived closer! But I'm grateful to feel closer to her through blogging. Her sweetness shines through every one of her posts, as does her love for her family and the gospel of Jesus Christ.


3. Saquel24 cracks me up. Her posts are totally down to earth and real. Great writing, great pictures, and adorable kids, make for one fabulous blog! They moved a few months ago, and I miss them a ton! Thank goodness we can still keep updated on all the Asp family antics! ;)

4. MommyBee- my former college roommate. She has had some major lemons thown at her (in the form of multiple miscarriages and other trials) but she is using her life experiences to bless others. She often writes about controversial matters and she truly has the courage of her convictions. In other words, she has the confidence to say and do what she thinks is right even when other people disagree. I'm grateful we met years ago, and that we've reconnected through the blogging world because she inspires me and she makes me think.


5. M&M's- This is a new bloggy friend of mine. She's witty, she's a talented writer, and she continually makes me laugh out loud. She seems to have some really bizarre things happen to her, but she has a good attitude and finds the humor through it all.


Well, shoot. There are so many other blogs I love. Who says I have to limit it to 5 anyway??

Thanks so much for the award Nicole. You're a very good friend and I miss you a ton. I'm glad you get some laughter out of my blog. I usually try to put a positive spin on the crazy stuff that's part of motherhood. Generally I'm not always positive so the blog is my way of trying to be better at a positive attitude. You of course are a great example to me and I hope we'll always be friends!

Aw! You are such a sweetie! I confess to being shocked at being considered at talented writer as writing has always felt like a weakness of mine. But I do have some funny material to work with these days! :o) Thanks for giving me some sweetness to put in my lemonade. You are an angel.
