a liebster blog award

My new found love of running had me searching the world wide web for running blogs not too long ago.  My search lead me to the blog My First 5k and More...

Darlene is the author of this running blog whose daily posts I sooo look forward to getting in my inbox.  Her love of running is infectious!  So, I started following that blog, and then, she started following mine.  And now, she has given me a blogging award!

In the spirit of "paying it forward" in bloggie land, I cheerfully accept this award and will cheerfully share it.  The rules of the award...

1. Each person must post 11 things about themselves.
2. Answer the 11 questions the person giving the award has set for you.
3. Create 11 questions for the people you will be giving the award to.
4. Choose 11 people to award and send them a link to your post. Go to their page and tell them.
5. No tag backs.

To begin - 11 things about myself...

1. I love Honey Nut Cheerios.
2. I love chocolate.
3. I love Greys Anatomy.
4. I love The Biggest Loser.
5. I love to scrapbook - when I can find the time.
6. I love my Jesus - got saved July 1995.
7. I love the color pink.
8. I love Walt Disney World - It's a small world after all!
9. I love fuzzy socks.
10. I love sleep - who doesn't!?
11. I love the word... love ;-)

11 Questions for me from Darlene at My First 5k and more...

  1. Running, Biking, Swimming or Other?   Running! Don't own a bike, and I ashamedly admit, I don't know how to swim.
  2. Dog or Cats?  Both.  Although, most of the time I wish neither.  I have a yellow lab - Lucky - and two cats - Jinxy and Precious.  All were gotten before we had kids - when we actually had time for them. Now, we're just too busy, and unfortunately, they get neglected a lot.
  3. Favorite Racing Distance? I'm loving 5ks!  I haven't tired anything else... yet... ;-)
  4. One Goal for 2012 that you have accomplished? Losing the "baby weight" from the pregnancy with Hannah.  I've lost the most I've ever lost, AND I'm smaller now than I've ever been!  Thank you running!
  5. Favorite Ice Cream Flavor? Vanilla
  6. Favorite Race? My first.  The Action Dash at University of Georgia.
  7. Marathon: Done It, Someday or Never?  I don't want to say never, but I'm not interested in it.
  8. Favorite Book?  The Great Gatsby
  9. Favorite Movie? The Last of the Mohicans - love Daniel Day Lewis!
  10. If you won the lottery, what would you buy first?  New car!
  11. Worst Fear? I hate driving over bridges as much as I hate spiders, I think...
Now, my questions for those I'm about to pass along this award to...

1. Do you have any hidden talents?
2. Name two things you consider yourself bad at.
3. Favorite color? Why?
4. Favorite TV show? Why?
5. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
6. Favorite food? Why?
7. What outdoor activity do you enjoy the most? Why?
8. What is one thing in your life you couldn't live without?
9. Goals?
10. Pets?
11. Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus?

Now, for those I think deserve a little recognition, love, and hugz...

Wow!  That was a lot of work, but it was fun! I love ya'll bloggie friends!!!


  1. Thank you Jamie for thinking of me and giving me this award. You are such a sweetheart!!! I am ashamed to admit that I have not been good at reaching out for quite a while now. Because of this I don't have eleven people to pass it on to. I have just been super busy and am feeling quite overwhelmed at the moment. I am so sorry, but I just can't do this right now. I promise I will try to do it if things settle down. Will you please pray for my daughter Faith? She has been vomiting off and on for nearly three weeks and I am very worried. I have no clue what is going on. I am so scared that it is something REALLY bad. Please pray for her to be okay. Thank you so very very much!!!


  2. Thank you for your prayers Jamie! My Faith sure could use them. She is worse today and I don't know what to do because the doctor I took her to today will not find out what is going on. That is what he told me! He told me she has to get worse before they will test for anything! He told me it could be something REALLY bad, but he won't check for anything! He won't even do a simple CBC!!! He tells me how he has watched more than fifty kids die right in front of my six year old daughter! I was floored! Sorry to vent in your comments. Thank you for listening and praying!

    I hope your run was fantastic today!!! I can't wait to hear all about it!
