Heart Cries Giveaway & Beautiful Blogger Award

If you haven't already seen it, my friend Rebekah is currently featuring her first-ever blog giveaway! Hop on over and check it out, she has an adorable picnic bag that will be awarded to one lucky blogger this coming Wednesday, February 24.

Also, Tracey gave me this "Beautiful Blogger" award a week ago and in the frenzy of my week, I forgot to create my own nominations. Better late than never I guess, right? Thank you for the award, Tracey!

As part of receiving this award, there are a few rules:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award.

2. Post this award to 15 other bloggers that you follow and think are great!

3. Leave a message on each blog, letting them know you are giving them this award.

4. Post seven things about yourself.

  • I met my husband online and we lived in different countries, more then 4,000 miles apart from each other.
  • I will be student teaching in the fall and am one part excited and one part terrified.
  • I sang with Kenny Rogers at a Christmas concert once.
  • Speaking of singing, I really enjoy it and have been told I'm not bad. My sister and I have sung at two weddings and a funeral, which is kind of our joke.
  • I took guitar lessons a while back but never became dedicated enough to get really good. I hope to try again someday soon!
  • I hate reality television and I think this makes me really weird.
  • I'm starting to feel like our house is bursting at the seems and I really hope we can afford to make some changes (or at least add some storage) soon.
If you're looking for some new reading material, check out the blogs I nominated, they're great!

Thanks for the award Melba. You rock! I didn't realize that you and your husband met online and were in different countries. I vote that you share that story in some blog posts. I'd love to hear it!

Thanks for the award! That's really nice of you. I like your blog a lot, too :)

I hear what you're saying about your house feeling like it's bursting at the seams. Me, too!

Thanks Melba! You are so sweet. The bursting at the seams thing happens to every new parent, I think. We feel the same way and can't figure how we'll fit the swing back into our house for the new baby :)

I love Kenny Rogers...can you introduce me! ;-)

Thanks for the award! I'll post it as soon as I get a chance! I appreciate the recognition!

Thanks Melba! I think your blog is great too! I'll post my award soon.

I'm excited for you about the student teaching. I can just imagine that it will be nerve-wracking. But just think that you'll be closer to your goal of graduating and getting that degree. You'll do great too.

I've been a lurker on your blog for awhile now. Imagine my suprise today when you walked into the restaurant I was at with a friend and sat down at the next table. I thought about introducing myself, but wasn't sure if that was creepy (I was the one that Charlie was keeping entertained through the meal).

Anyhow...wanted to reiterate what you already know, your son is ADORABLE! Seriously, his grin is captivating. And he was incredibly well behaved. What a sweetie!

Melba said...

Amy - that's great, what a small world! Now I wish you had introduced yourself--I don't think that would have been creepy in the least! :) I actually wish I'd been more talkative now that I think about it...

Anyway, thanks for following and for your very sweet comments. Charlie is such a good baby pretty much all the time. It's nice to hear that acknowledged by other people though. :)

Feel free to email me directly if you'd like to chat more. Not sure if you have a blog or not but I'd love to follow it if you do!
