Beautiful Blogger and Sunshine Awards

Stacy from Bubbles, Balloons, & Blessings was sweet enough to give me the Beautiful Blogger Award. Thanks Stacy!

The rules for accepting the award are kind of fun:

  • Thank, and link the person who gave you the award.

  • Pass this award on to 15 bloggers you've discovered, and think are fantastic.

  • Contact your nominees, and let them know they've won.

  • State seven things about yourself.


  1. I'm a Baptist-Mennonite, or would that be a Menno-Baptist? Either way, I'm a Bible believing, follower of Jesus.

  2. I have a bachelor of arts in international studies, focusing on German, and minoring in English literature, but I can barely read German anymore, much less speak it :(

  3. I worked as a medical software support tech/trainer, before quiting to stay home with the babies (although there was only one baby at the time).

  4. I'm the youngest of seven children.

  5. I've lived in Colorado, Oregon, Saskatchewan, and Montana.

  6. I have never been able to do a cartwheel.

  7. And, I haven't had a cup of coffee in a week!

And, as for my nominees...

Cograts on the award!

Ticia said...

I'm thinking through what a Baptist-Mennonite would believe...... Now I'm curious.
I too have mostly lost the languages I learned in school, the side effect of not really practicing.
And finally, CONGRATULATIONS on your awards.

An Almost Unschooling Mom said...

Ticia- My father was an American Baptist pastor. My husband, and I met, in a Conservative Baptist church. We were married by Mennonite pastor, and then joined an Evangelical Bible Church (which is an Evangelical Mennonite Brethren church, in disguise). Our membership is still there, though we have moved quite a distance away, to a town without a similar church, and are now attending a Southern Baptist church.

Really, Baptist and Mennonite theology is very close.

So, saying I'm a Menno-Baptist, is a tongue in cheek way to say I've got a foot in both camps.
