Congrats and Honors

I want to send out a big congratulations to my friend Carrie from Buzzings of a Queen Bee on the birth of her new baby, Henry. Pop on over to her blog to see pictures of the sweet little guy. He was born right around midnight last night. I'm so very excited for her!

And speaking of babies, have you heard to pray for Harper? Head on over to Kelly's Korner if you have not yet heard about this sweet family and their darling daughter. She truly needs our prayers as she was born just a week ago and is in the NICU. Read all about her story. Kelly gives updates daily. God really is moving, but they need all the prayers they can get.

Also, I've been seeing buttons around blogland for another baby named Brecken (I think??) who seems to be in a bad way. I'm not sure his story but there is a button on Kelly's blog.

I would like to give a big shout out to Tracey at At Home On the Ridge on her third wedding anniversary. She and her hubby have a great story of true love. Congrats Tracey!

And also to Jessica at The Pelkeys on her first wedding anniversary. Happy Anniversary!

And lastly, I recently recieved a few awards. I was so honored and touched! I just have to share.

The first was from my friend Ashley at Domestic Fashionista. I could go on and on about this chick. She just plain rocks. That's all there is to say.
This "Friends" blog goes like this...

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

I am nominating:
My Mom at Neat and Tidy. She truly embodies this award. She's so great!

The second award comes from Holly. She's got such a sweet spirit. I'm so glad that I found her blog. She's genuine and sweet. Thank you so much Holly. It means so much to me.

Hey Girl! I was just checking up on you to see if you got your internet dilemma under control, and imagine my surprise when I saw that you gave me the Lemonade Award. You are the such a sweet person and I treasure the bond we have made via the "blogosphere"! I am just so honored that you think enough of me to read my blog, much less give me an award. Thanks again and hope you have a great weekend.
