Gorgeous Blogger Award....

I was graciously given the Gorgeous Blogger Award from Amy at Keep'n The Sunny Side a few days ago and think it's the perfect way to end the week!

This is what I'm supposed to do:
1. Accept and thank the person who sent it to you.
2. List 10 things about yourself.
3. List 5 additional things you don't like.
4. Pass the award on to 10 other bloggers.

Ten things about me:

1. I was 18 when I got married and we are celebrating our 16th Wedding Anniversary in just a few weeks.
2. I hate talking on the phone and will go to great lengths to avoid it with two husband and my mom!
3. My favorite color is pink but I don't wear pink clothes. I have one t-shirt that I'll wear occasionally but all other shades tend to make me look a lot paler than usual. I will however wear pink pajamas.
4. I don't believe you have to be a mother to be a homemaker. I've often felt excluded from other homemaking blogs because we don't have children. That's the reason I started this blog although I've never actually said that here!
5. One of my closest friends is one I've never met in person. And you know who you are right?! :-)
6. I want a Pug really, really bad and plan to call her Penelope!
7. We are facing a job loss in 2-4 weeks and I'm 100% positive that God will be glorified through it. I'm not worried at all. Am I crazy?
8. I hate the color blue.
9. I have not planted any flowers around the house yet, but when I do, I only want red, white and pink ones.
10. My birthday is the 4th of July.

5 Things I don't like:

1. People who do not keep their word.
2. Mushrooms and tomatoes.
3. Nosy neighbors.
4. A messy refrigerator.
5. Poorly wrapped gifts.

Gosh, I seem to be a little neurotic in some cases don't I?

I'm going to pass on giving this award away to other bloggers because I don't want them to feel obligated to do it if they don't want to. Thank you Amy for the sweet award!

Many Blessings,


  1. Melissa Congrats on your award!

    I know what you mean. We don't have any children as well. Your list is perfect! I don't like poorly wrapped gifts either. They seem so thoughtless.

    Have a blessed weekend sweet friend.

  2. Thank you for the nice compliment and all of your support! I have been struggling with my self image and all of the adjustments that come with major changes like this. Whew! I know it's a very wonderful thing to be healthy again it's just been different. It's almost like I forgot what it was like to be my old size. Strange I know. I promise to share before and after photos as soon as I meet this final goal! I'm looking forward to being able to feel comfortable doing that. That is the key to it all. *Smiles*

    Have a great week. ~Melissa :)

  3. Congratulations on your blog award and on your up and coming anniversary! A good marriage is a blessing from the Lord! Thanks for sharing about yourself, it's great to get know more about our blog friends:)
