Warning, random post ahead.

To start off with some awards sweet friends have given me, including one I have been very delinquent in posting about. And since it is the first sunny day of spring here in Oregon (it's like 85 degrees outside!!) and I need to get off this couch and go soak up some of that sun before it starts to rain again, I am going to be delinquent in my rule-following as well. Hope you all can find it in your big ol' hearts to forgive me!! My soul (and skin) are in desperate need of some Vitamin D!!

First award was from my friend Alexis, she is just so sweet and SO encouraging!

(I think this award is just too cool because the crown sparkles!! Bling bling ya'll!! HA!)

Rules, Rules, Rules:List seven things that make me awesome:

Sorry Lex, but this is sooo not the day for me to post seven things that make me awesome! I had a rotten day at work yesterday and am still down about it =(. No worries, I will be just fine, but not feeling particularly awesome today...perhaps when some semblance of awesomeness returns to me, I will play along. HA! But THANK YOU for awarding me "Awe-Summm!!", you are too sweet and I am glad to have met you!! =)

Second award was from my sweet friend Jenna, you all may know her as mommy to Miracle baby Brayden!!

The rules are that you have to accept the award and post with the person who gifted you, and give this award to 15 new blogs you've discovered.

Like Jenna, I don't have 15! So, also like Jenna, I am making my own rules and changing it =) I have been trying to spend a lot less time online lately, and so I haven't really discovered any new blogs... but here are a some of the sweet friends I have made recently, and am so glad I did!! If you haven't met these ladies, go say hello!!





And lastly, an award from my sweet friend Sarah, she and her husband have AMAZING faith and I am continually amazed by her strength and courage!! If you haven't met her, go say hello and say a prayer for them as they start a new path in their journey to parenthood.

Okay, so here are the rules:
1. When given the award, you write about seven things that you love.
2. Pass the award to seven bloggers that you love, and be sure to tag them and let them know they've won.

Seven things that I love:

2. My husband David
3. My family... my parents, step parents, in laws, sisters, brothers in law, sisters in law...I am blessed!!
4. My sweet kitties Lucy and Ruby
5. Macaroni and cheeese...yummmm my favorite!!
6. Blogging
7. Sunshine!!!

And I tag any of you that want to play along!!!!

On a TV related note, is any one else besides my sister Amanda and I taking this whole Jon & Kate marriage trouble unusually hard?

They just renewed their wedding vows in August!!! I bought the new People magazine yesterday and read Kate's interview and I am just so sad about it all!!

But in happier TV news...

I won't go on and on about it here in case some of you Office fans haven't watched the Season finale yet, but for those of you that did, was that not THE MOST ADORABLE THING YOU HAVE EVER SEEN?!?!?!?!?


Happy Saturday all!! Off to bask in the sun!!!

Yes, I am taking the Gosselin news hard, as well. I really, really thought they had everything together. It makes me sad, too.

Enjoy your beautiful day!!

Alexis said...

Thanks SO much for the award!!! And I agree--15 people??? That must be for people who spend all day blogging. Not me. I don't know that many people either.

Hi Kendra...
I can think of MANY things that make you awesome...
you're sweet, kind, caring, VERY funny, giving, you have a huge heart, and you love Jesus! Those seven awesome things about YOU took me about one second to come up with... imagine how many more things there are :)
I'm sorry you had a crummy day yesterday at work. Last week my week seemed to go like that... every day something new would happen... and it started getting me down. This past week was much better thankfully.
I hope your day at work Monday goes much, much better.
As far as John & Kate...I'm totally scratching my head on this one. Jeven loves that show. I think Kate's pretty snotty to John a lot and that bugs me. I'd love to know the real story about what's going on. Sure is crazy.
Thinking of you...

Mary said...

I don't understand why they don't just quit--the gosslins that is. They can do that. Sure breach of contract blah blah blah...but how could they not think that would effect their marriage? Now I didn't read the people article, someone stole it from the waiting room and I'm not going to buy I don't know the whole story, but I don't "get" people who choose to do things like that show...

As far as the Office goes--super sweet, and I was all "is that what I think it is?" Tom said "maybe the won the lottery!" lol

Becca said...

Hey, thanks for the award - so fun!! Yes, I am also sad about the Jon and Kate saga. Fame and fortune can create more problems than they solve, I guess (which is why I should be grateful that I have neither! HA!) Hope you soaked up lots of sunshine yesterday!

Lauren Kelly said...

Thanks so much, girl, and YAY for all the awards you got!! :) It's been so awesome meeting you through the bloggy world and I'm praying for you as you're trying to be diligent and aware of how you spend your time!! I think we all need to do that when it comes to being on the computer! Love ya, girl..Why do you have to live all the way across the country, haha???

Lori said...

Thank You for the award, I am also so glad that I have met you. I totally agree with you about time spent on the computer. For me I just cannot put that before more important things, it is hard enought to try to juggle just day to day life. And yeah 15 new blogs, wow, I don't know how I'd keep up with them all. I have really loved the blog world for the reason that I can post as much or as little as I like. Everyone has a different schedule, so everyone will look at it differently. And maybe if I'd be a morning person, I would have more time!! HA
