Stylish Blogger Award

Well how about that?? Sweet little Kae @ Bafefeetmakemehappy gave me an award today!!  Here's how it works:
1. Link back and thank the person who gave it to you.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 5 stylish blogs you read.
4. Contact them and tell them about their award!

1. I LOVE the Lord. And I talk about my faith a lot.  It's the most important relationship in my life, and everything I do revolves around that.  (Well, I try to make it that way! I'm not always successful.)
2. I'm a newlywed & I seriously think my husband is the BEST man ever. Jonathan is my best friend, and I think his qualities are better than any other man I have ever met. I guess that's why I married him!! Really, I am so thankful for him.
3. I do NOT like tatoos.  Sorry if you have one, but I think they're gross. It's a personal opinon....we're all entitled!  {Sorry, no pic. Google "tatoos" and maybe you'll have a clue as to why I think they're yucky!}

4. I was adopted.  My parents are saints and adopted me after already having 3 natural children of their own, all teenagers at the time. Everyone in my family has always made me feel super special.
5. I love, love, love cereal! I know that seems random, but I could eat it for every meal & be content.  I mostly eat variations of Fiber One (Honey Clusters, Frosted Wheat, Raisin Bran, and the Original), but I prefer Smacks, Pops, Fruity Pebbles, Froot Loops, & Frosted Flakes. YUM!!
6. I stay super busy all the time. Here's a run down of what I do....I teach full-time (middle school business ed), am the yearbook sponsor, give pitching lessons afterschool a few days a week, teach Sunday school, help in youth on Wednesday nights and any functions, serve at VBS, am getting my Specialist's, have 10 nieces and nephews, work out regularly, and try to be a good wife, friend, daughter, and sister.  That's a lot. Someone asked me the other day why I do all that.  I couldn't answer at the time, but after thinking about it, honestly I think it's just because I like to help people and I enjoy being involved and serving others.  That's important, and it is fulfilling to me.  However, I do have an occasional need for a hiatus.  That's why I go on vacation. :)
7. I consider myself a bit of a "health nut." I try to eat clean as often as possible (no fried foods, nothing packaged or processed, nothing 'white', lots of veggies & lean protein), avoid drinks other than water, black coffee, & green tea, and work out regularly.  I use sunblock every day, and get PLENTY of sleep (I'm a napper!!).  I just want to take care of myself and think it's important to be healthy.  Our body is a temple and we should treat it that way,and of course I want to model a healthy lifestyle for my kids. 
So, I'm passing the Stylish Blogger Award on to:
Rachael @ The Copponex's
Natasha @The Ross'

Geez, it's hard to pick just five....Enjoy!! :)

I love reading your blog-not sure how I found it but glad I did! You definitely make me want to be a healthier person. I've had some health issues and I am trying to take care of them myself. So today I went back to your post about vitamins to get some ideas. Enjoy your weekend - I'm a teacher too!
