What girl doesn't want this?

Theres always exciting things to post about. But none more than this one. I'm just tickled pink about it! I've been nominated for the Kreative Blogger Award by Destination Seaborn. What more could a girl want!

As part of the nomination process I have to list seven little known facts about myself.

I live in a town that nobody can pronounce correctly. It sounds like Copper- op -olis.

I often get asked the question out in public "what are the ages of your children?"- Yes that little guy was certainly a surprise. But the best surprise I ever got.

I met a mom of a girl that my daughter plays with at school. We fast became friends. She has done alot to help me. All while losing her house to foreclosure, working full time, and dealing with a son who has cerebral palsy. I had a dream that when she found another house, I had a gazillion dollars and or some wonderful sponsers that helped me give her son an awesome new bedroom!

I learned that through my losses- I was taught many lessons. Yes with loss of any kind can you can learn lessons and be given new opportunities. If not for losing my own home and two investment properties to foreclosure (no I'm not ashamed to admit) I wouldn't have realized as much as I do now, that the best and most precious moments in life are free. I was able to move to a new town, make many new friends, and my kids are able to attend a wonderful, nurturing school. Life is good!

That 40 is a big number to my kids. "Mom can you believe you'll be fourty this year" straight out of my twelve year old's mouth.

My husband drives 42 miles each way, everyday so I can be surrounded by beautiful hills.

I'm always tired, but never to tired to blog!

And now here without further adue, are my seven nominations for the KREATIVE BLOGGER AWARD...........
