Amazing Things On The Horizon!

Amazing Thing #1:  I just learned of a new volunteer idea that is going to totally be my passion this year. Maybe. From what I've read so far, it looks to be AMAZING. I'm so very excited.  More details to come...

Amazing Thing #2:  My blogger-friend Yaya (and her husband) have finally been approved to adopt a little boy from foster care. I fully shed a tear when I first read about it. They have been trying to have a baby and/or adopt a baby for ages and I'm so excited for them!!!

Amazing Thing #3:  I won an award for volunteering. This isn't new news to me, I've known for a few months. They are making a video and are holding a big luncheon and it will be amazing. I'm not the only winner, but I'm the winner of a specific award and I'm beyond honored and beyond flattered. They also included Andrew in the award to acknowledge his volunteering, which is spectactular. I will probably post more details on that later.

Amazing Thing #4: I won two blogger awards recently!!! More details on those coming up. I won another one in the past but I kept forgetting to post about it and then I felt it was too late and now I feel like I am a crappy blogger award acceptor.

Amazing Thing #5: Nothing in the world helps destress you as a really relaxing and calm (aka lazy ) weekend followed by a Monday that involves a very long bubble bath and a good book.

Amazing Thing #6: I have THREE giveaways to post. THREE!! I will post one tomorrow night---so come back. If no one enters giveaways, the terrorists win. Don't let them win. Come back and leave a comment!

And a special thank you to everyone who said such wonderful things about my picture yesterday. When I posted it, I meant to say something about "what do you see when you look at your picture" but instead I made it all about me me me ME. But that worked out fairly well for me so it's all okay. I'm trying to be interactive but really, I just end up being self-centered. I'll work on it. Please have patience.

    Volunteering is awesome. I always feel like something is missing in my life when I'm not taking the time to volunteer.

    Congrats on the awards. Sound well deserved. Although what I'm most jealous of is your bubble bath and reading time. ;)
