Yay, my lil' blog gets an award!

Well, I can now truthfully say I have an award-winning blog. ;-) My friend and blogging mentor, Lindsay, (Woods Life and Lindsay's Kitchen), gave my blog this Lemonade Stand award just today. I met Lindsay this past summer when she and her husband, John (or as I affectionately call him, Maestro), moved here after John accepted the call to be the music minister of our church. They are an adorable couple! Maestro leads a mean (read: fun and challenging) choir/worship ensemble rehearsal, and I love seeing Lindsay smiling, shaking, and shimmying in my church lady Zumba class. We are so blessed to have them! So back to the award: Apparently I am to give one-word answers to the following list of questions and then pass the award on to five other bloggers, whose turn it is then to answer these same questions before passing it on...yeah...a chain-letter award, it is! :-)

There ya go! Now, to pass on the Lemonade Stand Award...

To Teri,(Girl Meets Paris), who is a blogging inspiration of mine. I love reading about all things Parisian…AND the random stuff, too! Teri is an old friend from years ago when we were young marrieds and just starting our families, and if you’ve been reading my blog you already know and love her.

To Jennifer, (Dancer Family Tales),who is one of my favorites I taught in junior high Sunday School years ago, who is also the daughter of a good friend, Regina, and whose brother spent a lot of time at our house hanging out with my oldest son when they were in high school. She just so happened to fall in love with one of our youth interns! They are married and have two beautiful boys and they live way too far away, but I love reading about her family life and marveling over the awesome young woman she has become.

To Lori, (Mississippi Lehrmann's),who I got to know through church and through her close friendship with my niece, Brandy. She also writes a fun blog detailing her family life with her husband and two children. Always makes me smile! Lu ya, Lu! (don’t even try to figure it out, people…inside joke!)

To Kimberly, (if not now),whose blog I happened upon a couple years ago when I was looking for shoes appropriate for teaching Zumba Fitness classes. She is as crazy about Zumba as I am, and I love reading about her classes, her fitness journey, and anything else she happens to write about. I got to meet Kim in person at the first annual Zumba Convention in Orlando. I recognized her right away – she has the most gorgeous curly auburn hair, a beautiful fair complexion, and the sweetest smile. Even in a crowd of over a thousand people, she stood out!

To Reema, (It's Hip To Be Healthy), a new friend I met in Orlando the second time around, this past year. I’ve known her sister, Jumana, for over a year now, but when Ju wasn’t able to make the convention this year, she hooked us up with her sister. Reema is the epitome of perky, funny, and outgoing. Love her! She writes a health and fitness blog that I enjoy reading.

Ta-da! You are my five. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that sooner or later, if everyone awards five blogs, everyone will get an award eventually. Maybe that’s the idea! Anyway, it feels pretty good to be remembered by a blogging friend, so share the love. Who are your five? I will be watching to see!


  1. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.


  2. Thank you so much, Lucy! Love hearing from my readers! I visited your blog and left a comment under your last post. Love your site! Great info!

  3. Thank you so much. It might take me a few days to get to posting the award, b/c I'm in the middle of a huge project. I may do a quick post about it first, without answering the questions.

    So Sorry. This is a project I've been putting off since Jan.1 and it's PAST crunch time.

    Love the award! Merci!


Leave me a comment! I love hearing from you! :-)
