Fabulous Blog Award!

We received an award! Vivian with daughter Kerri received the award from The Monkey King, who received it from Lea at Lea's Musings (Oh My #6), who received it from Meredith Teagarden at A Mother Singing........... And check out Stories of Life in the Middle of Adoption who received her award from Seventh Diamond!
Love giving an award to our favorite bloggers. Our problem? We read so many adoption journeys, all with lovely family stories and feel a connection with so many; it seems that they are all fabulous!!
Thank you Vivian!

Here are the rules for this award:

1. Pass it on to 5 fabulous blogs, and include the one that gave it to you (and link them).
2. List 5 of your fabulous addictions.....

There are many blogs out there that I think are fabulous, I will probably not limit myself to five:

I already linked my Award giver above.....
Kristy at Franceskas Journey Home; she has a wonderful family and blog; waiting since LID 04/21/06,
Kris at Tell Her This is a wonderful photographer, very spiritual and seems to have the meaningful parts of life surrounding her,
PIPO at The VaChina Monologues is waiting for travel to China, yeah for PIPA!!
Lisa and family at the Long Road to China, love this family and her great pictures of two beautiful children,
Robin at Dreaming of Tea with Hope, what a story of patience! And you should buy some of her wonderful creations, she's generous and talented!

Also, want to add a few more for the Award as they have been troopers, blogging away while in China with their new daughters:
Stephe at Giorgia Danette,
Donna and Joe at Waiting for Lauren Elizabeth (waiting no more!),
Karen at Our Journey to Kaelie,
Kim & Joel at Ruby is Coming (and is here!).

And finally another waiting Mom, Catherine at Waiting for Hannah, LID March 23, 2006.... hurry up referrals!

And if she didn't already have the award it would have gone to:
Kim at Journey to Isabella, another great family, having fun while living a good life and waiting for Isabella.

My Five Fabulous Addictions are:
Coffee in the morning,
Reading blogs and email each morning,
the love of traveling,
time with Hubby and family,
I'm running out of ideas... need to ask hubby... he suggested "Maine". Yep, he's right! Maybe we should add American Idol since we schedule our TV time around this show!

And..... we just found out that we received another award, you guys are all so kind (more about that one in a future post).

My dream..... We wish we could all meet in one place, sort of a family reunion with matching t-shirts, children activities near a pool or lake, lots of grilled food (let's keep dreaming and invite Bobby Flay and Ina Garten too).... I can just see me trying to figure out who everyone's family is, who is who by their blog names! My vision of fun!

A very well deserved award!
Ohhh... I like your dream! And since I am from Argentina, grilling is my favorite thing to do! If we ever do get together, remind me to bring you some of my Dad's homemade chimichurri sauce for the steaks!

Awwww...thank you for the shout out. I will have to do my own post this weekend.

I'd say you've got some good addictions there! Your dream? That WOULD be so much fun.
