What I'm Most Thankful For...

in 2008 are my GOD, FAMILY, HEALTH, GOOD FRIENDS AND LOVE IN MY LIFE! I am also grateful for the precious little life that will join our family in just a couple of months. As my 5-yr. old daughter told me, then our family will be complete. I'm happy that I reconnected with several old classmates of mine, some of whom I hadn't seen in over 20 years, thanks to Facebook! It was better than a class reunion and I look forward to reestablishing those ties we once shared. Browsing through all of their pictures and profiles just brought back so many warm memories of the Fun and Wacky times we had over the years. It's amazing how some people look exactly the same and others I probably wouldn't recognize if I saw them on the street. I am very appreciative of the support I've received from and the opportunity to serve all of my fellow Etsy teams members. Imagine, people wanting to help you in business with no expectation of material gain or benefit to themselves...WOW! And I can't wait until we can spend time with close friends who are like family to us today...and of course eat!!! Love and Blessings to all!

I was tickled pink when my blog buddy Stampinmom presented me with this award! I love reading her blog and seeing what new and fun activities she's into, so check out her blog when you have a chance.
The Rules for the Award are as follows:

1. Mention the blog that gave you the award & comment on their blog when you post the award.

2. List 6 things you VALUE & 6 things you DON'T VALUE.

3. Then, pass the award onto 6 other blog buddies! Easy, goes...

Things I value


2. My incredible family

4. Freedom/being an American


6. Each Day

Things I don't value (this is a little tough since I try really hard to find a little value in everything, even the worst situation), but I will keep to the rules!

1. Ignorance (although it could be an opportunity to educate someone!)

2. Mean-spiritedness

3. Hot, humid weather (unless of course I'm at the beach on some island that ends in i, i.e Maui, Capri, etc.)

4. Laziness

5. Bad restaurant experience (I love food, and when the food or the service is bad it makes me unhappy)

6. To piggyback on #5, bad shopping experience (I enjoy shopping and a rotten attitude from a salesperson can ruin it in seconds!).

I am passin' this on to the following (includes all my girls from the Super Giveaway Committee because they are so fly!):
