I am Thankful for my Stylish Blogger Award!


I am thankful for...receiving another blog award!  Marie at The Things We Find Inside passed on the Stylish Blogger Award onto me and I thank her for giving my blog another award so that I can pass this on to 15 other bloggers! 

Rules for accepting this award are:
  1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass this on to 15 other great bloggers you recently discovered.
  4. Contact the selected bloggers and tell them about their awards.
So 7 things about myself...
  1. My favorite movie is The Sound of Music. I have watched it over and over again and now my children like to to watch it too!
  2. My first international trip was last November 2009 when I took a pilgrimage to Medjugorje.  It was a peaceful and powerful 9 day experience as my husband stayed home to care for our children.
  3. I am not a picky eater and I like all kinds of food.  I especially like meals that I don't have to prepare.
  4. My father has a fraternal twin brother and my husband has a fraternal twin brother.  There are other multiple births on my father's side of the family and my husband's side.
  5. I love being Catholic and I love the families in our local Catholic homeschool group.
  6. My husband planned our honeymoon trip (without my help) to St. John, Virgin Islands and he didn't tell me where we were going until we were driving to our reception after our wedding ceremony. 
  7. I've been to Disney World once when I was 7 years old at Christmas time.  "Santa" visited our house on Christmas Eve morning that year so we could leave for our family trip to Disney on Christmas Day.  I'm not sure if I will ever get back to Disney with my family.  Only time will tell...
Now I pick the following 15 bloggers to pass this award onto:
  1. Lynda at My Heart's Desire
  2. Anna-Marie at Life's Adventures
  3. Tiffany at Sweet Phenomena
  4. Jen at Forever, For Always, No Matter What
  5. Mary at Winecup Christian Academy
  6. Christine at Our Homeschool Reviews
  7. Kenna at Our Crazy Little Life!
  8. Tiffany at Family at the Foot of the Cross
  9. LLR Homeschool Mom at LLRHomeschoolMom
  10. Patty at Reasons for Chocolate
  11. Kelli at Raising an Arrow
  12. Sara at 8aplenty
  13. Becky at A Country Classroom
  14. Johnnie at Saved By Love Creations
  15. Tonya at Home School Mom's World
Thank you again Marie for passing on the Stylish Blogger Award to me! I am thankful to be able to pass on this award to other bloggers!

    Oh Tracy you are so kind to me. Thank you very much for the award. I am so blessed by you every day. You make me laugh, smile, and feel humble. I am very proud to call you my friend. (I voted for you as always and forever;)

    Congrats on your award you so deserve it:) thanks for passing it on to my blog. It has been such a blessing and honor to have you in my blog life and to have met you in real life.

    I voted for you. Surprised you don't have multiples does that pass from the mother or fathers side?

    Thanks so much for the award!! I appreciate you thinking of me. I love that your husband planned your honeymoon, and he picked a good place :)

    Patty said...

    Thank you for being so sweet and thinking of me as well! My girls just watched Sound of Music (or part of it) last night! My sister-in-law is leaving on her pilgrimage there as well, this coming Tuesday. My hubs planned our honeymoon...we went to the East coast, but he planned it. Wow! All these similarities!

    Aw! You get these awards because you put so much into your blog! It is a happy place to visit! Just reading the title "The Sound of Music," I will be singing for the rest of the day now! An absolute favorite in our home!

    Have a great weekend! +JMJ+

    Hi Lynda!
    It's been fun getting to know you in blog world! Thanks always for your sweet comments and support!
    Voted for you today too!

    Tracy said...

    Hi Anna-Marie!
    Our "real life" meeting was special and it's been fun getting to know you and follow your wonderful travels through your blog :) As far as the multiple births question, I don't know for sure, and I've always heard different things. :)

    Tracy said...

    Hi Patty,
    That's so neat that we have so much in common! "Meeting" great bloggers like yourself is "one of my favorite things" about blogging! :) The Sound of Music is wonderful! Did you see the reuniting of cast members for the first time in 45 yrs. on Oprah recently? I DVR it and watched it with my dd! It was great!
    I hope your SIL has a wonderful and blessed pilgrimage! I would love to go back, but not sure if it will happen.

    Tracy said...

    Hi Annita!
    I'm glad you enjoy visiting my blog :) It's always so nice to read your comments, as well as the other visitors! I'll ask the same question I asked Patty: Did you see the reuniting of cast members for the first time in 45 yrs. on Oprah recently? I DVR it and watched it with my dd! It was great! I too could sing Sound of Music all day! Love the songs and story!
    Hope you are having a blessed weekend!

    Hi Becky! It was fun to pass on the award to you! It took me almost a month to post about my award so no problem if you don't get to it or never post about it. It's difficult to find time to post awards sometimes :)

    Tiffany said...
