Bloggy Awards, 90 Day Challenge, and My Mom

I have waited for this day for a long time and I just wanted to thank all the little people .... ha ha ha ... just kidding. Thanks to Becca I am the proud new owner of not 1 but 2 bloggy awards.

The first blog award is Lemons to Lemonade Award. In order for me to officially receive this award I do have to follow the rules.

The rules are as follows ...

1) Put the logo on your blog or post. 2) Nominate at least 10 blogs that show great attitude or gratitude.
3) Link to your nominees within your post.
4) Let the nominees know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5) Share the love and link to the person from who you received your award.

Queen of All Things Awe-Summ!!! Award
List 7 things that make you Awe-Summ and then pass the award on to 7 bloggers you love.

Make sure to tag your recipients and let them know they have won!

Also link back to the Queen that tagged you.

I am going to combine the two awards. (And since I am still new to the blogging world I can only come up with 6 bloggers to send the awards to.)

*7 things that make me Awe-Summ*
1. I love God with all my heart.
2. I have the most precious son, Jacob.
3. I have amazing girlfriends.
4. I love to read.
5. I got accepted to Northern Illinois University so I can finish my degree.
6. My mom and I are friends.
7. I wake up atleast 3 times in the middle of the night to check what time it is.

Go and check them out. I enjoy reading their blogs each and everyday.

90 Day Challenge

Remember a few months ago I posted about how my church does a 90 day challenge. Well we are starting another one. My friend Sarah and I are going to do this one together. We both are busy individuals but we are going to email each other so that we can keep each other accountable. (FYI - I love Sarah. Her and I have been friends since 6th grade. She has a strong faith and has always been there for me.)
If you are interested in participating in the 90 day challenge click here for the adult version and click here for the student version.
Also, if you want to check out any of the sermons from Harvest Bible Chapel (Naperville) click here.

Last but not least ... Momma at Momma Needs a Time Out is hosting a giveaway. I really really want it. The rules of her giveaway are to post something about your Mom in honor of Mother's Day.

Boy oh Boy could I post a ton about my mom. I love my Mom. She is amazing, strong, loving, and a really great friend. As a teenager I didn't ever think I would say those things about my Mother. We were not exactly close. I was closer to my dad. But when my dad left we clung to each other. Matthew was a baby and Michael and Mark were still so young. I leaned on my Mom for strength. She was my shoulder to cry on. Now that I am a older I am finding out more about the time following my dad leaving. My Mom told me that she had $8 a week to buy groceries for the family. Our house was in foreclosure since my father cleared out all our bank accounts and my Mom was on maternity leave. She never let us know. I didn't know how bad things were. My Mom is the strongest woman I know. I hope that I am as good of a mother as my Mom is.

I love you Mom!!

Well that is it for tonight.
