Lookie What I Got!!!!

My friend Ali, over at Alidotes nominated me and gave me the "Your Blog is Fabulous" Award! Thank you thank you. I think first off I want to thank God, and then the little people...mainly my son, Parker, without whom I would not have funny mommy stories.

I have decided to nominate my own 10 as well.

1.Ambient Light - The story of twin preemies, their worship minister dad and amazingly sweet mom. I just love this blog.

2. Morgan Kate - Another amazing preemie, I just adore the honesty of her mommy Heather and I love "talking" with her and giving her my infinite (or something like it) wisdom!

3. Muffin Top - Ahhh my good friend Amanda, I love her and her family. They were in our life group until they left us for warmer skies. :) Kidding, she is too funny and her son is precious!

4. Mama's Losin' It - my newest find and newest love. Mamakat is honest, and funny, and their kids names are unique and I love that!

5. Kayleigh Freeman - I adore this girl and her family. They really helped me move past myself and become someone that people can turn to. Kayleigh is a preemie as well and I adore her! She is a fighter!

6. Momdot - I love this site, seriously, so fun, I love all the blogs, contests, and the brutal honesty! This blog makes me happy!

7. MckMama - I love this blog for 2 main reasons, 1) if ever i am down, I can go to her blog for a good laugh and 2) she is honest about struggles and her faith shines through always!

8. Anthony - another preemie buddy, Kim, the mom has been there when I am losing my mind and not sure what to expect. Our sons were the same weight and height even though they weren't born at the same week or in the same year. They also had a lot of the same issues! I love knowing I can turn to another preemie mom.

9. Ceaseless Praise - Carrie is a friend of my hubby's but has become a quick friend of mine. She's always willing to offer advice, for that, I am grateful!

10. Homesick - another blog of a mom of preemies, her son's unfortunately did not make it, but what I love about reading her blog and what makes it fabulous is that she is honest. She doesn't down play the hurt and the sadness she feels. She is very honest about how she feels angry, sad, helpless, hopeless. That, to me, makes her just fab and just a wonderful human! She isn't putting on a brave face, she's just being her.

11. Bring the Rain - Angie, what a strong woman, I love her blog. ( Also love that she names of her daughters, especially audrey because, that is what I want to name mine!). She is a Christian, married to one of the singers from Selah and she is honest and growing daily in her faith, just like I am!

Thank you for nominating Morgan Kate's blog - I am Morgan Kate grandmother's and I have really enjoyed getting "to know" preemie moms through these blogs. As I can say is that you moms and dads of preemies are very special people! My blessings go out to all of you.

Awww...thanks! :) How fun! :)

Mama Kat said...

So sweet! Thank you...I'd like to thank the little people as well. Really. Without them, we'd just be boring single people, getting full nights of sleep and doing what we want.

THANKS little people. ;)

Seriously this was really nice, thank you!
