So today I am going to try an catch up on all the posts I didn't do while away (and yes I had a few planned). But first I would just like to say that while I was away I received a Blogger Award!! I have never received one so getting one literally made my day.
I received my award from Bea Beautiful over on her blog Diary Of A Fat Girl (which I encourage everyone to go and read, it's a great blog about losing weight and the ups and downs that go with it).
Now the award I received is actually 3 awards bundled up in one big one called the Blogapalooza (you can't not smile at the name ;) )
Okay so here's the breakdown of everything this award includes: The first is the Reader Appreciation Award, this award has no specific rules except for passing it along.
The second is the OverLord Award, this one made me laugh because A: I cannot top Bea's answers and B: I have no clue what I'd put!! But nonetheless it is funny. This one is simple though, I get to write down 3 things I would do if I were overlord for the day, how awesome is that!?!?! Oh and pass it on!
1: Okay first thing I would do is..... Implement a program that would help fix our school systems, this is something (as a mother) I hold dear, our schools seem to be failing so many children and yet nothing is being done. There's a reason our country cannot even compare to others when it comes to learning, and we need to figure out why.
2: I would go and visit all the places I've wanted to yet never been able to.
3: This one seems to be the hardest. I honestly don't know what to put!! So once I come up with something totally awesome I will def. let you all know.
and last is the Happy 101 award. To accept this award you must list 10 things that make you happy and pass it along
1: My kids, how can they not make me happy!!
2: My hubby
3: My friends
4: My blog (yup it makes me happy =D )
5: My followers, you guys always have such kind and encouraging words!! You are all awesome!
6: Rain, I know it normally is looked at as something gloomy but I love the rain
7: Fall, I love fall and it always makes me happy. It's like my Christmas O.o
8: My customers, I love when I am able to make someone happy with my products, makes it sooo worth it!
9: My hubby's family. Now I think I am more blessed to have them then anything and they honestly do make me happy, my family isn't really a family so I've kinda adopted my hubby's family.
10. God. Enough said.
Okay now it's time to announce the 10 blogs that I think deserve this totally awesome Blogapalooza Award!
