  {Its good to be back!}

Hey everyone!! Wow! I feel like I have been gone from blogging land FOREVER!! I feel so behind on comments and posts and blog stocking! First, I want to say thank you so much to everyone for your sweet thoughts about my toe! It is much better and I can actually wear real shoes (even though I was wearing them the next day because beauty knows no pain! hehe). I am still not feeling 100% my self though....I thought I was dealing with allergies or a cold, but my sister suggested I might be dehydrated. So I started drinking a lot more water, cut out sodas, tea, juice, everything...just water for me for a few days and I am starting to feel a lot better! So maybe that was the problem! I hope after a couple more days I can start back on my green tea and my 1 soda a day! (Gosh, I really miss it when I know I can't have it!)

I also wanted to share that I won another award!! This one is called the Smile Award, and it was given to me by my best friend, my sister Brittany! Check out her blog to see her totally sweet thoughts about me! Love ya Britty!! Always and Always!!

So, here are my five!!!

1.)Lisa and Bobbie at Girl Indie. These chicks have been so supportive of me for a number of years. I was privilaged to acutally meet them both in Utah at the Boutique Cafe Girls Getaway, and let me tell you....I could just hang out with them both day in and day out. Lisa and I became friends through the childrens couture world when we both ran our clothing businesses, and then Bobbie, who is Lisa's best friend, and I have bonded through graphic design, which Lisa does too! These chicks are so awesome, then definatly make me smile! :)

2.)Kimba and A Soft Place to Land. I stumbled upon Kimba's blog a few months ago and started lurking around before I started commenting. Well let me tell you...this chick can do ANYTHING with a can of spray paint and a little imagination. I mean, I though I spray painted way...nothing like this genious! I just love her for it. And she has been nothing but wonderful to me ever since I "met" her! Thank you Kimba for making this world a beautiful spraypainted object at a time!

3.)Kyley at Crazy Kyley! Boy, me and this chick are like two peas in a crazy tripped out pod! I just love her! Not only does she decorate in Funky Chic, but she has a beautiful heart for the Lord, and is just downright awesome! I am so glad I found her and her blog, because it is a daily read for me! :)

4.)Nester at The Nesting Place. Why? Because she believes "it doesnt have to be perfect to be beautiful". Need I say more?! Seriously, check this chick out it you haven't yet! You dont know what your missing!!

5.)Gina at Lattes & Lipstick. This amazing woman has gone through so much and has used her gift of creativity to help her husband! You can read all about George HERE, and help save someones life! I bought her book and have already started using it...I am just so inspired by the love of a wife who had such a small idea that branched into something no one would have guessed! God bless you Gina and George! My prayers and support are with you both!!

Well, thats about it! Thanks so much....but keep looking out, tomorrow I will be posting that Art Project you have all been waiting for!!! See you then!
