I've Won A Major Award!

I'm super excited today because yesterday a dear blogging friend passed an award along to me!

"I've Won A Major Award!" is what I said to my husband when I received the email from her. I then laughed hysterically at myself because all I could think of then was the movie "A Christmas Story" when the dad wins his "Major Award". We were both super excited...

A great big thank you goes out to New Year Mum! She has been just beyond wonderful and soo supportive during our family's journey of loss and then the new found hope! I feel so special that her angel in Heaven daughter Gabrielle and I share the same birthday!  I love you so much NYM! (and maybe one of these days you'll reveal your super-secret super hero name to just 'lil 'ol me! ) :)

And here she is...

I can not wait until I add it to my sidebar!

Since I won this award I now have to comply with the rules that go along with it. They are as follows!
1. Link back to the person who gave you the award (above)

2. Tell 7 things about yourself....
3. Award other bloggers (this should be passed along to 15 'recently discovered bloggers' but I'm thinking that I'll award less since I'm still really new to blogging! (plus New Year Mum already awarded tons of ladies that I would have already done! :) I tried pretty hard to not double do you (but who really would complain about getting 2 awards?!)

4. Contact the recently awarded bloggers and let them know they've won :))

So on to the 7 things about myself...

{1} I adore coffee but can only drink the kind I make at home with exactly 1 sweet n' low and the perfect dollop of Coffee Mate refrigerated creamer in fat free hazelnut. Any other coffee made any other way tastes just horrible to me. This is soo weird, I know...

{2} I can not stop eating my kids Easter candy. I now have to go and buy more before Sunday or I'm screwed.

{3} Grady's 3rd birthday is coming up and I might just spend the entire day crying (and every day leading up until then) because he's not my "baby" anymore. He's a big kid now. :(

{4} I'm addicted to blogging and I can't help but check every 30 minutes to see if anyone has posted anything new for me to read about!

{5} I'm currently begging my husband for a laptop so I can do {4} from the kitchen and not our office area :)

{6} My next "check on the baby" appointment is this coming Monday and for the first time in my life I want Easter to hurry up and be over so I can get to that day quicker!

{7} I'm over the moon to have won this award!

And now on to awarding others this!
