My First Award~~~am I lucky or what?

Carrie over at With All that I've Been Given thought of me when she recently was awarded the BFF award. inside i was tickled pink, tho outside i remained calm, cool and collected as always. Thank you Carrie for passing on this award, my first award ever! its almost as good as chocolate!

So here's what i have to do now~~~

The Blogging Friends Forever Rules are:
1. Pass along to five people and five people only.
2. Four have to be dedicated followers of your blog.
3. One has to be someone new, or recently new to your blog, or live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the 'Blogging Friends Forever' award.

I had a hard time choosing 5 bloggers to pass this along to, esp since i don't have many bloggers who comment regularly, but i'm doing my best! so i am passing on the Blog Friends Forever award to some bloggers i don't know well,but have enjoyed reading their blogs.

Julie was one of the first bloggers i got to know. she has 2 sweet kiddos and has just sent her eldest off to kindegarten this month.

Carrie is a college student with a family like my hubby so i admire her drive to finish her degree. she also plays War of Warcraft which has peeked my interest ever since my brother started playing 2 years ago.

Sherry is raising 3 amazing kiddos,one of which has special needs. I love her encouragement and her heart for her kiddos and those of us who also have kiddos with issues.

Joanna is a new blogger. several years ago she worked with our son as his tech or aide. she was wonderful with joe, and we were very sad to see her move on. but now she has gone and got married, had a sweet baby girl last month and is starting on the blogging thing. if you visit joanna you can see some great pics of their little girl, and you might give her some advice on the crying baby days. i feel for her and her hubby.

and last, i have to nominate my swap partner maryann. i got to know maryann thru carrie and her sister monica's shoebox swap last month. if you haven't done a swap you just gotta! it was tons of fun. maryann is a young wife who is so creative. she is actively making her home a prov 31 space for her family and is an inspiration even to an old fogey like myself!

ok now, consider yourself tagged and get out there and pass on this wonderful award.

and thanks carrie, for thinking of me. you're a sweetheart.
i have more later for you ladies. i think we have found a church here in boise! woo hoo, i'm so excited.
