My First Blog Award

Beca over @ has given me my very first blog award. I found Beca soon after I started blogging and loved the fact that she too ended each post with "Blessings" as I do. Thank you Beca for this award and I will do my best to follow the criteria for this award.

First and foremost I have to share 10 honest and interesting things about myself. So here goes...

1. I have to be honest... this is going to be hard... 10 interesting things about me....
2. I am a justice of the peace in a small county in Nebraska.
3. My home is small but big in love.
4. My Mom always told me "It's not what you don't have.. but what you do have and do with it" and I have always lived my life with this motto in mind.
5. I too was saved by grace and am blessed to be married to an awesome man of God.
6. I drive a red Chevy Suburban and am happiest when it's filled with kids on our way to a basketball/baseball/football/volleyball game.
7. I live 2 1/2 hours away from a Walmart.. Yes people I said 2 1/2 HOURS....
8. My kitchen always has at least one dirty dish in the sink... I hate doing dishes.
9. I love turning trash to treasure but it you have visited this blog you already know that.
10. My ultimate goal in life is to raise 3 Godly children.
Well that didn't hurt too bad. Not that it was interesting but it sure made me put my thinking cap on. Now comes the fun part..passing the award on to some of my favorite people. There is a part of me ( a big part of me to be honest) that doesn't feel "good" enough for this part b/c these people so know what they are doing where I do not. But I do want to thank those that have given me great ideas, encouragement and positive vibes... so here goes.

1. Bec4 @ (This is one of the first blogs I visited.. and it was a great first blog to visit. She is so creative as well as well as being of "lover of Jesus.)
2. Girly Stuff @ (Just visit her site and you will see why I like this gal. She just finished the most awesome kitchen island eva.)
3. Jeana @ (Her pictures are amazing)
4. Candy @ ( Who could pass up a junk "sophisticate"?)
5. Risa @ (The first other "Nebraskan" I found or I guess she found me out in blogland. )
6. Melanie @ ( I just flat out like this gal.)
7. Melissa @ (This is an amazing "military wife" who truly know what hospitality is all about)
8. Chris @ ( An awesome teacher who I really wish would find me some locker baskets:-))

Thanks again Becca for this award and I graciously accept and hope those I nominated will as well.

Hey Roxanne, The town I live in doesn't have a wal-mart either. Although I don't have to drive that long to get to one. Only 45 min. It was fun reading your facts and knowing more about you.

Thank you for the Honest Scrap award! And the props on the island!

You sound like a great mom and wife. Even if you do have a dirty dish in the sink as I type this!

And you must live in the middle of no where if Walmart is that far away!!

Thank you so much for the Honest Scrap award. I really love your blog and enjoy reading it. My favorite post of yours lately was the one about your daughter's new job. I wish I could visit and enjoy a cup of coffee with you. I look forward to seeing the finished bathroom project.
