Random Thoughts and Some Thanks!

♦If you read my last post you may know that my computer will not allow my camera to upload my pictures. I am still so mad and I just don't know what to do!!! {tear}

♦I tried uploading to my (school) laptop, but whatever I did...DID NOT work! {another tear}, so still no pictures. {lots of tears}

♦I went and got a pedicure yesterday after church with my friend Crystal and had a great time! They are navy and silver for WCHS!

♦Talking about WCHS, they play the #9 team in the nation, YEP IN THE NATION, on Friday night. {yikes}

♦And since we are talking about football, but aren't we always talking about football, the boys have their game over an hour away and of course I have a baby shower on this side of town...sigh...wish I could be in 2 places at once!

♦With today being Labor Day, I decided that I would do some labor...I cleaned my house from TOP to BOTTOM!! Love that my house is so clean!

♦Colin is outside playing and Brendan is laying on the kitchen counter listening to Camp Rock...whatever!

♦I am looking forward to the 4 day school week, but why is it that 4 day school weeks always seem longer than 5 day school weeks? Oh less day is a good thing! Is it bad to already have a count down to summer?!

Over the last few days, I have been fortunate to receive a few awards from fellow bloggy friends!

Nanette over at Life:Be In It passed on these 2 awards to me {blush}...She is a super sweet gal, wife, mom, Child of God and so much more! Make sure to blog over and visit...she would love it!

So the first award that Nanette passed on was the Loyal Friend & Visitor sweet...Thanks! I love to blog by and read about her daily doses of life! The rules of this award are to post it and who gave it to you and then to pass it on! Well, I pass it on to all that follow and Comment, cuz if it wasn't for you...I wouldn't even have a blog! Thanks ladies for letting me feel the ♥love♥!!

And the second award that Nanette passed onto me is this fun award, Neno's Award! This award is given to those who love blogging (guess I am a candidate for that!), love to encourage friendships through blogging (check!), and who help others seek the reasons why we all love blogging (I feel so honored!).

I have met so may great bloggy friends and other coaches wives through blogland that I am truly blessed! Thanks again Nanette for thinking of me and passing these awards onto McCrakensx4!

And lastly, but certainly not least, Elyse from Following Him, honored me with this fun award...

I am sure you all know Elyse, but if not, YOU have to go and check her out...she is a daughter, sister, college student and Child of God!! She is amazing and so uplifting and a great prayer warrior! Go and see for yourself!!

So with accepting this award, I am supposed to tell you 10 things about myself...WoW...this is gonna be hard since I feel as though ya'll know everything about me already!! But here it goes...

1. I am a HUGE procrastinator! I wait until the last minute to do everything!

2. I could sit and watch TV all day if I had nothing else better to do.

3. I have not gained nor lost ANY weight since the birth of Colin, which was over 8 years ago!

4. I could eat chocolate chip cookies every day! (hence not losing weight since Colin was born!)

5. I will follow my hubby anywhere he gets a coaching job! I ♥ football! (but you already know that!)

6. I check my blog and facebook account, like, 100 times a day!

7. I like fruit, but do not like veggies... :P

8. I can watch the same movies over and over and over again! Especially Enchanted!

9. I started my blog for Mimi over at He & Me + 3 on October 23, 2008 while on medical leave for having an emergency hysterectomy...So in a month I will be having my ONE YEAR BLOGOVERSARY!

10. I love to sing to Radio Disney and often am doing it without the boys in the car!

So there you have it...10 (hopefully) new things that you learned about me! I am supposed to pass this award on to 7 blogs that I may find 'brilliant in content or design'. Well, as you know I am really bad at following the rules, so please accept this award on behalf of me if you are a follower, cuz I would really like to get to know you better! And don't forget to leave me a comment if you accepted any of these awards, because of course I want to come and see!!

Thanks ladies for passing these awards on to me...I am so honored!
Here's hoping you have a fun & relaxing Labor Day!

Sorry you can't get the pics to upload! I know that can be very aggravating!

Good Luck with the FB game! We have the second ranked team right here in our little town..Brynes High School.

Oh I wish I would have got some cleaning done but I didn't.

Congrats on your awards!

Stephanie said...

I'm jealous that you cleaned so much today....maybe you could take a trip south and clean mine alittle :)

Good luck Friday...I have faith that you guys will cause an uproar and surprise everyone :)

Following HIM said...

WoW...I had no idea I was that cool and that everyone knew me :o You just made my week woman!

Computers tend to be frustrating...hope you can get some picts uploaded soon. I do agree with you that 4 day weeks are MUCH longer than 5 day ones...go figure!

Have a great week!
