How Sweet!

Ya'll my heart has been so touched! Two of my newest and sweetest blogging buddies Audrey and Rachel have been so sweet to give me an award.

Thank you so much, Audrey and Rachel, for thinking of me and totally making my day with this honor! If you haven't read either of their blogs yet, you should definitely check them out. Both of them are so cute and oh so talented. Audrey also has an Evan and has a background in helping children with autism, so needless to say she touched my heart immediately. I am convinced Rachel can do anything and is pretty much Martha Stewart (just a much more beautiful version). Oh, and they both have the cutest little boys! You should definitely stop by and visit them!

So, here is what I'm supposed to do...

1. Put the logo on your blog.

2. Add a link to the person who awarded you.

3. Nominate at least seven other blogs.

4. Add links to those blogs on your blog.

5. Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.

I absolutely LOVE all of you on my blog roll. I check on you every day (sometimes two times...ha)! This time I'm passing it on to others I haven't sent awards to before. I wish I could send it to all of you, but I guess I actually should get some housework done today. :)

I pass on the love to...

1) Becky. Becky is adorable! I love reading her blog. She has a beautiful family and she and her husband are always on an adventure. She's expecting grandchild number three any day now.

2) Betsy. Betsy is so sweet and has such a great family. She is the mom of four great kids. She is the kind of mom I strive to be. Plus, she is a teacher and just SO CUTE!

3) Heather. Heather has to be one of the strongest women I have ever met. She shares her heart and I can ALWAYS relate to her and ALWAYS feel uplifted after I read her blog. She is amazing!

4) Kelly. I adore Kelly and have ever since we lived together at OBU. I know she has been like the most awarded blogger ever, and rightfully so. She has THE best blog! I admire Kelly so much. Her faith is amazing! I am so excited about little Baby H that is on his (I think she's having a boy) way! What a lucky baby to have her as his mom.

5) Melissa. Wow! I love Melissa's blog. She actually has two. One is about her family and the other is "Amazing Kids," a blog devoted to children with special needs. Plus, she has started a special needs ministry at her church, so I hope to learn a lot from her as I try to help our church with one.

6) Michelle. Michelle is my childhood friend. I have known her since I was five. Even though I still see her at least once a month, it has been so fun to check in on her through her blog. It's like seeing her every day! She has two cute kids and she is a great mom who always has fun activities planned for them. Plus, she home schools. Need I say more?

7) Traci. Traci is an amazing mom who also has a child with autism. I adore reading about her children and all the progress her precious son is making. She is truly an inspiration.

Love you all!

Leigh are so sweet!!!! I'm laughing because you may be right if we find out it's Hudson! :-)
I'm just so glad you have found other moms out there with autism children and what a relief it must be to have people in the same shoes.
Mostly I'm just SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad you started blogging and we have been reunited. I have GOT to get to LR soon!!!!

Becky said...

Aaaah! You are the sweetest thing! Leigh Ann, I truly feel as though you are one of my daughters and I look forward everyday to reading your blog. Cortney was really looking forward to seeing you this afternoon, maybe another time.

Thank you so much for the award!

Betsy said...

Lots of hugs to you!!!

Meagan said...

I just love blog awards! You certainly deserved this one. Your blog makes me smile every single time I read it! You are precious, LAH! A kindred spirit for sure!

Heather said...

Leigh Ann- you are the sweetest and thank you SO much. What you said is amazing to me- I just don't see it in myself (I think I am the opposite of strong!!) but I know it is all Christ, who lives in me!
I love you to death and can't wait to get together soon!

Becky said...

HELP!!!! I'm having trouble linking. I've done it before, but am having trouble linking for my blog award! Can you email me at

Laura said...

Congrats, Leigh Ann! I would have nominated you, too, but Rachel beat me to it! Great minds think alike!

P.S. I think Kelly is having a boy, too!

Lauren said...

You deserve this award!! Your blog is always entertaining, uplifting and just plain sweet. I check it at least twice a day! Love you!

Jacquie said...

Leigh Ann, I know you've already been awarded, but I listed you on my blog too! I have enjoyed getting to know you and looking forward to keeping up with you online!

I voted "boy" for Kelly, too!!

Deidre said...

Congratulations! You deserve it.

Jacquie said...

Leigh Ann, I just read your comment on my blog... SERIOUSLY... can you BE any sweeter????

Becky said...

I'm really having a blonde moment. I think I must have given you the wrong email address or maybe it hasn't come through yet.

Becky said...

Girl, I have no clue where your email is. It must be floating around in cyber space. OK, try this one:

I am sooooo sorry for being such trouble. Please don't worry about it tonight for sure!

P.S. Cortney just emailed me and said "momma, you spelled Leigh Ann's name wrong". I had actually already corrected it before I got her email. Like I said, I've been having a blonde moment all day or maybe for the last 54 years. HA!!!
