2 awards and a tag!

I can't believe how fast this week flew by! I agree that the older you get the faster time flies. It seems like I just got back from Dallas and that's been almost a week ago!


This first sweet award is from Melissa at http://melissasheartandhome.blogspot.com/ . She has become a really good friend over the past several months and I'm honored she would pass this special award onto me. I am a mom of one 9 yr. old boy Chase, but also a mom to my cat, Coco and my dog, Sassy. Of course I love Chase the most. LOL! I try to be a good mom, but of course I have many flaws. The other night my mom skills were tested when Chase puked all over the bed and the bathroom floor at 12:30 in the morning. Yuck! I was in such a deep dreamy sleep too! I know Tootsie went through this just recently with her kids. It's all part of being a mom! Luckily it wasn't a virus, we don't know what it was, but right after he puked he was fine. I hope you weren't eating when you read this. lol!


Here they all are before Chase's basketball game yesterday.


I would like to present this award to Tootsie at http://tootsietime.blogspot.com/ and Michelle at http://fromhousetocozyhome.blogspot.com/ I would pass this onto more of you great moms, but I think you've already received it!

This next award is from Michelle at http://fromhousetocozyhome.blogspot.com/. What this award is about...

I was also tagged by Diane at http://fourpawsco.blogspot.com/ . I was a little nervous about what I would find. LOL!! No.....I just hoped it wasn't some awful picture with my mouth wide open or better yet....one of my mom, she would kill me!

I was hoping to have something more interesting! This was taken at Christmas last year. I did get a bigger tree this year, but everything was decorated basically the same. I guess I should have cheated and showed you something more interesting.lol!



I tag Donna at http://designson47thstreet.blogspot.com/ and Dawn at http://dawnieslifeifbythesea.blogspot.com/ I know I'm a little late posting this one and most of you have already been tagged. This was a fun one!

Hi Kristen, :)

AWW...Thank you so much. I'm so happy we are friends as well. That was a sweet thing to say.
Congrats! You do deserve both awards.

Chase is so precious with his two buds. What a handsome young man.
I'm glad he is feeling okay again.

Seeing Sassy's photo reminds me soooo much of my boys. I have a very strong feeling our new puppy one day will be a Shih-stzu.
They are just in my heart.

Hope your weekend was wonderful.
