I'm a Winner!!!

But you knew that anyway...Just kidding!

I've never won anything before that I recall, and recently I've won several things...I'm a bit behind on telling you all about it (vacation sort of got in the way).

First, I was so excited to win a copy of Nancy's ebook, Haircuts for Little Men. I know learning to cut Silas' hair will save lots of money, and I imagine that if God gives us any more little boys (Elizabeth's prayer), it will become even more of a necessity. Thank you so much Nancy! (By the way, you can purchase this ebook for yourself here!)

Then I won a super cool gift from dear Windy. It hasn't arrived yet, but I'm looking forward to seeing it "in person". Windy's picture is so tantalizing! Thank you, Windy!

Finally, Christina awarded me this schmooze award. First I laughed and wasn't sure whether to be flattered or not :)...Till I read the explanation.

"In the real world a schmoozer is someone who will 'suck up' in order to be recognized. Here in the blog world things are different. (Thank Goodness!) This award goes to bloggers 'who effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well. They are the ones who engage others in meaningful conversations, refusing to let it end at a mere hello - all the while fostering a sense of closeness and friendship.' Don't you just love that description."

Well, hey, this is the blogosphere, I guess we can make up our own definitions, huh?! (Note the explanation differentiated between the "real world" and the "blog world". Definitely two different worlds. We have our own dictionary.) Thanks Christina! You are so sweet!

I am supposed to pass this one on...Hmmm, I will have to think about that...
