Rambling...

Okay, by the time you read the end of my post, you will know that I've truly missed blogging! LOL!

Instead of posting several different posts, I thought I'd combine several different subjects into one. Still with me?

First I want to share something that a very special blogging friend, Michele, sent to me the other day. When I took them out of the envelope, I wished you could have seen the smile on my face. It pleased my heart in such a way that she took time out to send some of her homemade cards to me. THANK YOU, Michele. I LOVE them! You're a real blessing girl!




Didn't Michele do an awesome job in making these?


Alrighty...
Next I have no idea how I received this, but I got an email and a few comments congratulating me on being one of the Internet Cafe’s Top 100 Christian Women’s Blogs of 2008!! The catagory that I was listed under was the All New Flavor Blog which was described as ~ "This blog is less than a year old but already shows such a tremendous capacity to bless. You just can't wait to see where she'll go from here!" Whoa! I am still asking today how did I receive this and who nominated me?? Hmmmm...Anyhow, what a blessing to know that the Lord is using my blog and thankfully alllllllllllllll my rambling to bless others! Thank you to those who nominated me.

Still with me?

Okay, the last thing I want to share is my new hairdo. I wanted some curls/waves of some sort. I was so tired of just the straight look. Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, look what I did. I like it just okay. It's different and that's what I wanted, but maybe a little too different for this ole', predictable gal. LOL!


Glad I was able to get some things cleared away here. Thanks for listening/reading. It wasn't that long, huh?

Katie said...

You are so pretty, I want your hair routine so I can share it with lauren someday. I just bought unrefined coconut oil and I really like it for her skin and hair. You get it at organic stores it is nice. What kind of shampoo do you use? I'm looking for one for her that is nice. Looks like you have had a lot on your plate, sorry about grandpa. I hate that we die but when you get to be old like that sometimes your ready. It is hard on the family though, but heaven will rejoice.
