My first award!

Thank you, Mary, at Homeschool Success for giving me my first award! I appreciate that you take the time to read my blog and I am so glad that you have been blessed by it! I have loved Homeschool Success because it speaks to my music background (as well as my faith). There are great lessons posted and wonderful links to explore. I am using these lessons along with our music curriculum in our home school!

The Sunshine Award asks that I tell you 7 random things about myself and then give 7 other blogs this honor.
7 Random Things:

1. I don't like fish, but I do like fish sticks. The fried fish is also my favorite thing to order at Luby's.
2. If I didn't have the life I do, I would want to sing on stage or in a band.
3. I LOVE making all sorts of charts, lists, and plans, but rarely follow them. (I am getting better at this.)
4. I am not really that much of an animal lover, I just keep thinking I am.
5. I wish we could just live out in the woods in a log cabin like Little House on the Prairie. Ahhh, the simple life.
6. I dream of the country, but am really a city girl at heart.
7. I LOVE all types of music, but cannot tell you who is singing/playing or the song title. (I am terrible at trivia.)

7 blogs that I have loved and find worthy of this Sunshine award are:

1. 1+1+1=1 - I get sooo many great ideas for our homeschool here. There are TONS of free printables! She is so, so generous with all of her hard work and material!!! Our preschool curriculum is coming from her Raising Rock Stars Preschool too! WONDERFUL site!!!
2. Your Husband's Deepest Desire - Our calling as wives is to be our husband's helpmeet. This beautiful blog is all about how to bless our husbands and to grow into the wives that God wants us to be.

My goodness! This is so unexpected - really. I am grateful for the recognition and will add this to my page later this evening. Right now - I am going to spend the rest of the day with my husband - as he desires.
