Award and Winner!

Blogging has many benefits. Not only do we get to share our own thoughts, but we are encouraged and uplifted by the writings of our blogging comrades. And sometimes…we win stuff!

I was ecstatic when I won Think by John Piper from Tried By Fire! This is one of my favorite blogs that I am recently following. (And not because I just won a book from her!)

And then, low and behold…our friend Gregg over at Gospel-Driven Disciples awarded Losing Michelle with a Stylish Blogger Award. Thank you, Gregg!

With the acceptance of this award, I must pass the award on to other fellow bloggers. I follow several blogs that would deserve this award…but I think I will send some folks my friend Sarah’s way and give this award to Crumbs Under My Table. Sarah and I met online by speaking out for our faith and found out we live in the same neighborhood! You will find Sarah has a great love for God’s Word when visiting her blog. (You can pick up the award at the bottom of the page, Sarah.)

Another part of the award is that I must share seven things about myself…this should be easy…we all love to talk about ourselves, right?
  1. I am a creature of habit and routine. On any given Monday-Friday, you will probably find me doing the same thing at the same time most days. (As may or may not be evidenced by some of the following things about me.)
  2. I am a morning person. It is nearly impossible for me to sit down the first two hours I am awake. This is not in any way caffeine induced, it is all natural.
  3. My favorite place to be at 6AM is on the road walking or running. Unfortunately, my body thinks when it is pregnant it is a descendant of the slug family. I’m thinking about running home from the hospital.
  4. My undergraduate degree is in psychology. I think that is hilarious because I don’t believe in what I now consider hog wash. (Sorry, Dr. Pelley…I still love you and you are still my most favorite instructor EVER.)
  5. When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a Fly Girl when I grew up.
  6. When I was in college, I scheduled showers and meals. Actually, other than classes and work, most of my day was scheduled in 15 minute increments.
  7. My husband doesn’t like to cook when I’m in the kitchen. Before he has used something he needs, I have washed and/or put it away.
I hope none of this leaves you with the impression I’m anal. I’m sure Dr. Pelley could have a hay day with this. Have a great Monday!

Aw, thank you so much! I don't feel worthy of an award, but will definitely take it as I am not likely to receive another....ever, lol. Oh, and I thank my husband without which none of this would be possible (his job pays for internet access) and God who has graciously given us said job, and fingers with which to type. I would say more, but I left my list of people to thank in the closet along with my unbelievably beautiful designer gown (imagined by 3 yr. old daughter). Thanks again, and I seriously do thank God for bringing such a great friend and wonderfully inspiring sister in Christ into our lives!
