i'm a winner...i'm a winner

SWEEEEEEEEET! One of my 5 readers :) nominated me for a blog award. "My friend" over at consider it pure JOY (whom I have never met but we stalk each other blogs) has sweet stories and really loves the Lord. She tells alot about herself in her blog. The award is called Honest Scrap blog award. So I will tell 10 things about my self and then nominate blogs I read.

1) I like lipstick...alot. I put it on pretty much first thing in the morning.

2) I need to read my Bible more....I am working on it.

3) I put things on my to do list even if I already did them....I put them on it and cross through it. It makes me feel good.

4) I have seen alot of cool nursing things...people who eat money (quarters, 3 bucks worth), pins, pens, call light clips, rocks (yup about 2 lbs of gravel, not even kiddin), and assortment of other things that make my job interesting.

5) I love scrapbooking, crafts, flowers, photography and using my Photoshop elements to make a pic interesting.

6) My favorite place to visit is Northern Michigan in a little town called Frankfort. It is our place to go to relax and reconnect and make memories and have fun. We go here usually 3-4 times a summer.

7) When my daughter Laine was born I was scared. She was diagnosed with a rare condition. It is treatable but not curable. I thought there was a chance she could die. We prayed and we asked God to heal her and she is almost 4. She is healthy most days. We are blessed.

8) I love coffee....alot. I don't really go for the coffee maker kind. I like the fancy stuff from the cafe at the hospital, or Caribou, or Starbucks, or Panera Bread. (sugarfree vanilla skinny latte..iced in the summer and warm in the winter.

9) Someday I would love to visit Paris. Maybe in the spring. If it was Paris I would be willing to go anytime.

10) I love my kids. They teach me so much and make me a better person.

These are some of the blogs I read you might want to check'll be glad you did.

check out Liz...she is a grade school friend who is a creative, piano playing, chicago living mom or maybe stop by and see Sara....she loves all things Pink and has the sweetest daughter. I like reading Melanie's stories...she is a friend of a friend and I didn't know about blogs till hers. I have been praying for Nikki and her story of trusting God in the mist of some very difficult days. I am inspired by Kris's story of adopting soon 2 teenage girls. I also think that rach at in his hands has a story of her son that she will soon meet that is awesome to read about. I was roommates with Charisse for one summer and now she is a mom with stories.
