She likes me she really likes me (Said in my best Sally Field voice)

I got my first award!!!!!!!!!!! Whew hew!!!!!!! I have at least one reader ;)

My blogger buddy Dana at had this to say about my blog.....

jade & i crossed paths on a message board. we were both posting on a thread that questioned religions (we're both catholic) and we started noticing we had A LOT in common. after multiple e-mails, it was confirmed that jade is my long, lost lebanese sister! jade has the best sense of humor and her blogging is honest and uncut. she has an adorable son, houston, who is h-i-l-a-r-i-o-u-s! check her out!

Thanks for all the wonderful praise. I am wondering if you are reading my blog...LMAO??!!

Dana is a great lady and I have offically adopted her as a family member. We are convinced we are related. We are both too cool not to be related ;)

I know her and her husband are going to be wonderful parents, hopefully soon! You are in my prayers!

I can not tag just one so I am thinking in threes....

1. First off Melissa at
I think we are a lot alike. I also love that we share a love for the catholic faith :) We are a lot alike and it helps me see that Cali and Alabama girls are more a like than you think :)

2. Next Melissa at
We met on a message board. We have kiddos that are the same age. I think we have a lot of the same values and yet again we have a lot in common. She is a strong woman and even though she is younger than me I look up to her :) She should be proud of herself.

3. The third is Ariana at
I met her on a message board as well. She has a beautiful family. I choose her blog because I can relate to being away from family. It makes me feel more normal ;) I also love her great pics. I think we also have a lot of the same values :)

I promise I am not a total nerd. I realize I don't "know" these people in real life but that is just a formality ;)

These women in some way have made me a better person....whether it is by making me feel more normal, realize I am not alone, give me kiddo advice or advice on my faith journey :)

Love your blogs ladies!

I'm soooo glad you commented... I kept googling "jade blog" and couldn't find it :P
I lost a bunch of my blog links and had to find them through my comments and that's super time consuming!

Anyway, I have a lot of similarities to your meme (is that what it's called?)- I love reading these things.

Thank you!!! I love your blog too. But I feel like a bad blog buddy because I've been neglecting my blog and haven't been visiting other blogs lately. I'm in a sort of blog funk. So I feel honored you thought of me.
Your meme answers are similar to what I would have put, some different, but as usual it seems like we think the same.
Thanks for the award and I'll get to posting the meme as soon as I pick up my son from school and find the time to complete it.
Keep up the blog - I love it!!
