Odds and Ends

First off I’d like to thank Karolee from My Montana Moments for The Smile Award (pictured below). This was what the author of the award said:
The thing that I love most about blogging is that I learn so much about a person just by reading his/her blog. I have met MANY wonderful people with wonderful stories to tell and I am grateful every day for each person whom I have the pleasure of crossing paths in life with. I wanted to create something special for the top ten people who have inspired me through their blogging; the stories they tell, and the lives that they lead with grace and dignity. I visit their blogs for inspiration and encouragement. Although there are MANY people I want to give this award to at this very moment, I am going to choose ten bloggers: Please grab your badge and wear it (with a smile) proudly, and pass it on because you inspire and encourage me, thank you.

You are sweet Karolee, thank you. I want to give this award to ALL of you. That’s everyone that reads my blog or is on my sidebar. Do you know why? Because Karolee said I can give it to as many people as I want and I want you all that bring a smile to my face when I read you blogs to have it. You know who you are. I love you guys.

I saw this on Art’s Strange World and I thought it was fun. Give it a try and let me know - how much is your blog worth? Mine is listed below.
My blog is worth $20,887.98. How much is your blog worth?

Finally, I want to thank my friend, Dianna for taking the above picture of Tom and I. She’s a professional photographer who attends our church and took the pictures of me on my blog. I think she’s great. Tom and I are going to Vancouver, BC to teach a class together. They wanted a picture of us. Why? I’m not sure, but I didn’t have any I liked. So thank you Dianna for taking this picture before church on Sunday.

Speaking of sweets, I have one left(you know what I'm talking about) Sunday, be prepared to take a slam. My silly blog was only worth $2,000. Hey I guess that is better than nothing. You are a blogging Queen Nadine ;>)

Awwww, you are so sweet. Thanks for the award. Your posts are worth smiling about and always seem to challenge my heart. Your posts are like little grains of salt.....

Ps. I love your love story. One of my favorite question to ask a couple who seem to have a sucessful marriage is how did you meet and fall in love. Your story is great.

Thank you for the sweet award!

The picture of the 2 of you is wonderful! You should frame that one. :-) I am a big fan of 'true love' ;-)


I'm going to check out the 'blog worth' link...

Elle*Bee said...

Fun! Thanks for the Smile Award.

As for how much my blog is worth, with only 4 semi-regular readers, I'm thinking not a whole lot. I'm afraid to test it though on the link. It may end up that I end up actually owing money! LOL

Love the picture of your and honey, by the way!

Mrs.Martin said...

What a good picture of the two of you. You both look as happy as you are. I love it, when they can capture that on film.

And... Thank you for the award.

As always you are very thoughtful Nadine. Have a good trip too!

Amydeanne said...

The picture is beautiful! I hope you have a great time in BC! I have a bit of family there so we go everyonce in a while!
Thanks for the award! You make me smile too!!!

Karolee said...

Nice picture! And thanks for the kind words. You made me smile - I knew you deserved that award. :)

Chappyswife said...

Thank you, Nadine, for the award - my first and only! You never fail to lift me up, as well, my friend.

That is a gorgeous picture of you and your husband, a true treasure.

OOHH, I'd love to go to Vancouver. I bet it's beautiful. Have you been there before?

Now, I'm off to see how much my blog is worth or not worth. I like how one of your friends said she may end up owing money. LOL. That's kind of how I'm thinking.

Congratulations on this award, Nadine! You so deserve this!
And thank you for being so generous and awarding it to everyone of us who loves to stop by here! :)

I'm so behind in almost everyone's posts this week! But I was just reading the post below, and I just loved what you had to say about marriage! So very true and beautifully written. I had no idea you met your husband at such a very young age! I had the opposite experience...but such a wonderful thing to read how God has used and grown your marriage all these years!

Lovely picture of you both, too!

Great picture Nadine and congrats on your Smile Award :o)
