New Awards

I had a pleasant surprise when I got in from work on Monday...my first day back at work. I had gotten two awards! The first one is a Friendship Award from Pat at Milli Fiori Favoriti. Pat writes such interesting posts about her life in New York City. I visit her blog every time she has a new post. When I finally make it to NYC, I think I'll enjoy my trip so much more cause of the background Pat's given me.
Thanks so much Pat! I'm honored to be one of your blogging friends!




I would like to pass this award on to some of the bloggers that I've known the longest:
Janie at Southern Lagniappe
Dawn at Dawn's Daybreak
Jeanne at Backyard Neighbor
Picket at Picket's Place
and to my daughter Kelli at Sassy Southern Mom


This next award is from Nola at Alamo North. The recipient of this award is supposed to tell 6 things that make them happy and pass the award on.
Here's my six things:
1. Spending time with my family-my husband, children, grandchildren, mother and all the others.
2. Spending time with my friends.
3. Reading good books.
4. Working in my garden.
5. Volunteering at the Riley Center.
6 Getting involved in a really good Bible study.
I would like to pass this Creative Blogger Award to:
Jan at Jan and Tom's Place
Pat at Backporch Musings
Brandee at Berry's Patch
Mya at Creative Musings with Mya
And Nancy at Southern Lady

Thanks so much Nola!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a wonderful day.
Diane

What a nice thing to come home from work to find. :) Thank you for passing one on to me.

I am up early today for something school related. Boy it's hard getting up so early. It officially begins for me two weeks from yesterday.

How are things going for you at school?

take care,
