First Award!

Thank you for all your insightful comments on yesterday's post. I know it was heavy - but rest assured that today's post is very non-heavy!

Liz over at Mainly A Midwife gave me this award!

Thank you, Liz! Liz is pregnant, too, and turns out she's due just a few days before I am! It's going to be a really fun 2009 with all the babies!

I was pretty happy to receive my first award. Mainly because I don't write as often as some people do, but I'm thinking that's changing now that I've got a baby cooking. Nothing much is happening right now that I can tell. I really don't feel pregnant! I keep thinking that I'm going to go for my first ultrasound appointment and they're going to look at me and say "There's nothing in there".

Here are a few reasons I actually feel pregnant:

1. I was in bed by 9pm last night
2. I have been having the most horrific, very realistic dreams
3. I'm bloated (one woman even said to me yesterday "Oh, you look like you're showing a little bit already!" to which I replied, "Nope, I'm just fat")
4. I'm tired all of the time.
5. The only thing that has really sounded good lately is Ramen (although last night I would have walked to Dairy Queen barefoot in the rain to get their chicken strips basket)

I don't feel sick yet which I'm thankful for, but I realize it could still hit at any moment.

Okay, along with the award there are rules. So, to those I give this award to, you can follow the rules or not, but here they are!

1. Name 5 things that you love.

2. Pass along the award to the blogs you love.

3. Please link back to my blog.

I love: My Savior, my husband, my family (both sides!), my freedom, and my pup.

I'm going to give this award to:

Becky over at Smile, It's Becky. Her posts are always so funny and I just love to read her "Not Me Mondays" and her experiences as a little person teacher!

Brie over at My Home, My Life. She's not afraid to stand up for what she believes in, and she was so patient with me while I created a header for her cute blog. Especially now that neither one of us can figure out how to get that crummy border to stop messing with the header!

Bev over at A Baby? Maybe... because she makes me laugh. She's a really great writer and although I wish she would post more often, I really can't complain since she's busy preparing for her baby girl!

Whitney over at My Journey Toward: The Glamorous Life of a Housewife. I have to give her one - she posts almost every day and they're all equally entertaining. Plus, she's a preggo too and right now I have a soft spot for Mamas-to-be. Especially preggos in their first trimester - it's so nerve-racking.

So, there you have it. Happy Award Day!

Sidenote from a non-political person: I'm saddened by the results of the election, but I trust God's will has been done and I will submit to the leadership as the Scriptures instruct me to do.

Aw, thank you so much for the award! I love it! :)

I, too, have a soft spot for preggy women right now. And girl, all of your reasons you feel pregnant - I FEEL THEM TOO!!! AHHH!! One day we will feel human again!

Thanks for the last note on the election. I, too, will have to have faith in God's plan and respect the authority now placed in Obama's hands. I am, however, quite relieved that our country has a checks and balances system for governing. Hopefully, our other elected officials will keep things in check!

Love you blog!

Prepare to continue being tired. It takes soooo much energy to grow a baby :) Nap whenever you can.

I'm really very happy for you! It's amazing that 3 sisters are expecting at the same time. I see lots of close cousins in the future :)
