An Acknowledgement, an Award and an Announcement!!

This morning, when I woke up, I checked my blog roll to see what all my bloggy friends had written over the course of the night (yes, I enjoy Saturday mornings before the kids wake up drinking coffee and reading blogs)...anyhow, I never know what I am going to find when I read a post! However, today, I read something on Robin's Blog that struck me in such a way, I felt very compelled to share it with you all.

Robin, while discussing how we sometimes judge others (yes, even I, someone who really, really tries not to judge others, do find myself judging sometimes) said this:

" little as I know about what I'm doing, it's massive knowledge compared to what I know about someone else's situation." - Robin, please allow this to resonate within you, as I think Robin has hit the 'proverbial' nail on the head with this one comment.
Robin, you should be like a modern day philosopher or something! Really!
Moving on, I have recently been given a VERY cool award from Sam at 'Life is Beautiful' (yes, I found another Sam in Blog-Land and she is a business major, a Lover of LOST and a very cool person...all JUST like me)...She gave me this:

"This award means you're really going places, Baby. You'll still be blogging about your great adventures 10 years from now, and I'll still be reading them."

In order to accept this award, I first have to express where I think my life will be in 10 years....

In 10 years, my oldest will be approaching her junior year of COLLEGE!!! We will probably be sending in her application to MY JOB so she can study abroad (yes, I work for a non-profit organization that promotes diversity through college study abroad programs and SO FAR, both of my daughters have expressed an interest in studying abroad...yeah!)...Eva will be getting ready to go to high school (I can only imagine)...Jr will be getting ready for 5th grade! WOW!

As for me, I hope to be someone who raises most of her own meats...someone who grows, harvests and cans her own veggies...and someone who raises chickens to lay her own eggs. YES!!!! I want to be more self sufficient in life...I want to cut out processed, store bought foods as much as I can...I want to be more like my Grandma, my uncles and my aunt...THEY are so inspiring and I can't wait to watch my Nana can her tomatoes this summer!

Second, in addition to telling you where I think I will be in 10 years, I also must select 10 wonderful fellow-bloggy-friends to share in this award. So, in no particular order, here are the people I think know I will be reading them blog about their amazing adventures in 10 years:

  1. Robin at Lolidots
  2. Melissa at The Marsh Family Blogs
  3. Krystena at Baby Peas
  4. Kylee at In My Life
  5. Alexis at Where He Leads Me...
  6. Laura at Blogging From Bolivia
  7. Deborah at Mom's Sanity is Making a Comeback
  8. Darla at Hissy Fits and Halos
  9. Chasity at Better Known as Mommy
  10. Elizabeth at Our Journey Through Life

These ladies definitely have some interesting things to say, pictures to share and stories to tell...So, go check them all out and see where they are in life NOW!


And, FINALLY, last but not least, I will soon be announcing a giveaway (yea, this is sort of a pre-announcement) for two really neat prizes (that I bough from Alexis' wonderful Etsy Shop Threads of Hope). Here's a preview of the prizes:

The entry requirements will be REALLY easy (well, I think so anyways!)...All you will have to do, when the time comes (sometime early tomorrow...before Getting to Know You time), is leave a comment with your MOST FAVORITE RIDDLE! Yeah, fun, I know! I got the idea from Krystena's Giveaway that just happened to be the FIRST giveaway I ever won...She asked for Knock-Knock Jokes for her very cute son! I thought it was fun to read all the jokes and a great way to show love to her son! Thanks for the idea, Krystena!

So, tomorrow, sometime in the wee hours of the morning, the OFFICIAL giveaway will be officially announced. Be on the lookout and start THINKING of your absolute favorite riddle to share with us all!

So, that's the three A's for the day!...oh, and in case you made it this far, I just want you to know, it is SNOWING AGAIN HERE IN VIRGINIA!!!!!!!
