Catching Up

I am taking today to catch up on posting some awards I received several weeks ago. I really am terrible about posting such things. I received the following awards from Cindy and Kirstin. Thank you for sending them my way.

The first one is from Cindy from Stamping Therapy. She has an amazing blog and I love visiting it. She is very talented.
I am to name 5 things that I love to do.

And the second one is from Kirstin from All over the map. I just recently met Kirstin through the Busy Bee Blogging group that I joined. Kirstin makes some really cute cards.
I am to name 7 interesting things about me.

Since the requirements are so similar, I am going to do them together.

I really don't think I am all that interesting, so here goes.

1. Jesus Christ is my everything. I am where I am and what I am today because He died and rose again for me and gave me new life in Him. I have been so blessed to be raised by Godly parents and pray my children will say the same thing about me someday.

2. I love being creative and have always loved making things from the time I was a little girl. I would love to go to craft shows and visit craft stores, then go buy the stuff to make it myself.

3. I love spending time with my family-both my natural family and my church family. I am so blessed to be surrounded by wonderful people.

4. I love to cook and try new recipes and wish that I had more time to do so. Dinnertime always seems to come so fast. I have big plans and then find myself just scrambling to get something on the table for us to eat.

5. I was born and raised in NH. Two years after I married my husband we moved to Maryland. Since then I have lived in New York and Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania is my all-time favorite state. I love it here.

6. I would some day love to travel to Italy. That is my dream vacation. I know my husband wants to take me there and he gets very upset with me because I want to wait until our kids are a little bit older, but I feel that right now they need to come first and I'm not sure I would really enjoy it if I am worrying about them the whole time. So for now, I am content to watch the Travel Channel. (He will probably leave a comment on this post telling me how wrong I am.)

7. I always wanted to be a teacher growing up, but met and married my husband instead of going to college and then we had our first child right away. Little did I know that God would bless us with six children and I would have the opportunity to homeschool them. I really enjoy our days learning and growing together. I am so blessed!

I hope you didn't find that too boring. I am going to cheat and pass these awards on to however is reading this that hasn't already received them. Please take the awards and put them on your blog from me. I would love it if you would leave a comment letting me know, so that I could read interesting facts about you. I would love to learn more about my blog readers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a blessed day!
