I have been away from the blog world for the past week. I have a lot going on right now and my German relatives were here for a visit so Halainah and I have been running and running and we are so exhausted.

I was so surprised to come back to my blog and find that I was nominated for the "Kreativ" Blog Award especially since I don't think that I am all that "Kreativ". Thank you so very much Marcy for the award. Marcy is an extraordinary Mommy of 4 with her youngest son Lane being diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. She is the creator of her exceptional blog, Lovin Lane which gives superb insight into CF that only a loving Mama can bring. I love laughing with her, crying with her and learning from her. She truly is an inspiration.

So here are the rules for the "Kreativ" Blog award:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you. (Check...thank you Marcy)
  2. Copy and paste the logo on your blog. (Check...it's posted)
  3. Link the nominator on your blog. (Check)
  4. Name seven things about yourself. (Oh Boy...check)
  5. Nominate seven "kreativ bloggers". (So hard to pick only 7 but...check)
  6. Post links to the nominated blogs. (Check)
  7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs. (Check)
Hmmm...List 7 things about myself...this should be fun:

1. I love Christmas...I love everything about the Christmas season. My husband and I start listening to Christmas music late in September all the way to the end of January sometimes February. We go to the extreme in decorating our house. This year will be exceptionally special since it will be the first Christmas with our daughter.

2. I am an animal lover and cry when I see dead animals on the road. In fact my hubby tries to distract me while we are driving in the car so that I don't see what's on the side of the road.

3. I love the Disney Channel...Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly place, ICarly and so on...I'm such a kid!

4. I have been caught up in this horrid economy and lost my job as a manager in a mortgage company over a year ago. It is so horrible out there right now. Picture 5,000 applicants for every job...that is what it seems like. Please say some prayers for me.

5. I HATE Root Beer. I can't even stand the smell of it. My husband loves it. He also thinks it's funny to switch our drinks every time we are out to eat. And stupid me...I always fall for it.

6. For some reason I feel secure at the beach. I can sit for hours watching the waves crash and love the overwhelming feeling that somehow things will always work out.

7. I suck at jokes! I just don't get them. And they always need to be followed by an explanation. I don't know why.

Okay so here are 7 outstanding blogs that I am passing the "Kreative" blog award to. It was really hard to choose 7 because I have a ton of blogs that I just love to follow and are all so special to me. But I had to limit it to 7 so I hope there are no hurt feelings.

1. Boy oh Boy oh Boy!

2. Finally a Family of Five

3. The Love Shack

4. Courtney's Corner

5. My Little Flower

6. She's Going Bananas

7. My Three Sons!
