I’m Stylish! Whoda thunk it?

Broad Horizons has given me the Stylish Blogger award! No one has ever done anything like this before, so I am ridiculously excited. Thank you!

Here are the rules:

  • Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award
  • Share 7 things about yourself
  • Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
  • Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award
  • So… 7 things about myself…

    1. Growing up, I wanted a dozen children. Then once I started having children, I thought seven would be nice. In reality, it looks like I’ll be a mother of nine, with six living children and three lost to miscarriage.

    2. I’m currently fighting my way out of peripartum cardiomyopathy and back to health. Prayers are coveted and appreciated!

    3. I’m trying to get up the courage to launch a new project, a review and giveaway blog called Everything Lovely. Go and check it out! (And if you have something you’d like reviewed and/or given away, let me know!)

    4. I’m a La Leche League leader (11 years!) and breastfeeding advocate. Having to formula feed my twins for their first 2 1/2 weeks of life has (hopefully) made me a more compassionate and understanding Lactivist.

    5. I am ridiculously happy that my last little one was a second baby girl! I’ve never known what to do with boys and feel like I am drowning in testosterone sometimes.

    6. I am Catholic and married to a Lutheran pastor. We’re very ecumenical! The children are being raised Lutheran.

    7.  I am a horrible housekeeper and homemaker. I don’t mean to be. I don’t want to be. But I just don’t like our house very much and have a hard time making the best of things. It’s something I am working on.

    Huh. Well that ended on a bit of a negative note. Moving on…

    I hereby bestow this award to the following newly discovered blogs:

    1. How the Sun Rose

    2. Time-Warp Wife

    3.  Pumpkin Patch

    4. Adventures of a Somewhat Crunchy Mama

    5. Many Little Blessings

    6. Life in the Ant Hill

    7. Hearth Song Home School

    8. Sweetness and Light

    9. Joyful Toddlers

    10. Fairy Dust Teaching

    11. Modest Millie

    12. Celebrate the Rhythm of Life with Children

    13. Aunt Peaches

    14. A Little Great

    15. Little Page Turners

    Okie dokie– now check them all out! I really tried to focus on some of the blogs I’ve found more recently. I have many, many others than are oldies but goodies!

      Thanks for the award! I looked into becoming a certified lactation consultant, because I had such a difficult time breastfeeding with both of my girls. I understand how hard it can be – and that sometimes it just doesn’t work! My friend had peripartum cardiomyopathy and I pray you recover quickly and fully!

      Dear Annette, Thank you for the Stylish Blogger Award. I am doubly honored with it, just in from you and recently from Sally over at Fairy Dust Teaching. I love learning about each other with the seven things about each other and discovering so many great blogs and bloggers. Thank you for including me and sharing about yourself. La Leche League Leaders are the BEST! I’m sending prayers for healing and many blessings on you and your family. Warmly, Lisa

      Thank you so much for including me! That was so sweet! 🙂

      Wow — I bet that has to be interesting to not only be in a mixed faith marriage, but to be doing it with a member of the clergy!
