Awards and Sundries

I need to do some blog housekeeping. I've been given a couple awards and haven't had a chance to discuss them or pass them on.

First of all: 

I was given this award by Krissa at Halfasstic. It's so ugly, isn't it? LOL!!

I am supposed to pass this on to someone with little children in diapers. I've chosen Lora Lynn at Vita familiae. She is nearly out of the diaper stage but she is an awesome mom who is planning to adopt from Uganda so I think she deserves an award.

 Next I was given an award by Cheryl at PrairieMaid
I am supposed to list ten things that make me happy. I always have such a hard time with these things but I'll try:

1. Finding a book in a resale shop that I want to add to my library.
2. Indian food.
3. A good workout.
4. Beds in America (England too). So comfy!!
5. Babies, babies, babies.
6. Learning that a book I've requested has arrived at the library.
7. Dancing.
8. Watching my kids become adults.
9. Being married to a godly man.
10. Coffee with french vanilla creamer.

Now I have to pass this award on to a few bloggers. I would like to highlight some of the blogs that inspire me. 

  • Rae from Journey Mama  She recently was living in India. Her posts brought back so many memories. She is back in North America right now and her post the other day felt really familiar.
  • Ali at Ali's African Adventures She works on Mercy Ships traveling around the coast of Africa helping with medical care. She is a head nurse (maybe the head nurse) and always has such heartwarming stories. This post has me all excited.
  • Katie at the Journey. She reminds me what real missionary work is and I feel challenged to love and serve even more.
In other news: I won a giveaway! It is a set of makeup brushes. Now I have to figure out what to do with them. I'll tell you all about the blogger who sent them to me later. And then you can tell me what all these strange brushes are.


  1. Congratulations on your awards and giveaway win! And thanks for the tips on other blogs. I'll check them out.
    Have a great rest of the week,

  2. I... I... I'm speechless. What does one say to such an award? Thank you? I think? :-) I'm honored. Seriously. The loaded diaper thing? Yea, I'm familiar.

  3. Stopping by from SITS.

    I so deserve that loaded diaper award... potty training a resistant three year old and have a 7 year old (with special needs) who STILL poops his pants.

    Africa? So cool.

  4. Well, from the looks of it you found the perfect person to pass on my Crapasstic Award to!
    And as far as your favorite things go, numbers 1, 2 and 5 are always on my list of favs as well. I hope you really light some fires during your next month in the states. Now I have to go and check out some new blogs!
