My first Award....Yay!!

Yay...I was given my first award! Renee over at My Glimpse of Life gave me a creative award for my Homemade candle shop! Thank you so much Renee! Here are the rules that I was given:

*Mention the blog that gave you the reward and comment on there blog to let them know that you have posted there award. You also have to list 6 things you VALUE and 6 things you Don't VALUE. Lastly, you have to pass the award onto 6 other friends!

So here it goes...6 things that I Value:

1. God and my faith in him.

2. My husband Randy. He is a blessing. I love him so much, he is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with him!

3. My three kids. They are my world!

4. My family. My mom, dad, sister and brother in law mean everything to me. And my in laws...I cannot forget them too...I so love them and I am so blessed to have them!

5. The friendships that I have. I admit that for whatever reason...I don't have to many...but the one's I do have are very, very special and valuable to me!

6. Friendly people. I really value courteous friendly people. It's so nice when you walk by and a stranger just smiles. A smile can change someones day!

Six thing's that I DO NOT value:

1. Abortions

2. People who take there insecurities out on others.

3. Prejudice

4. Cancer

5. Money...I hate how everything seems to come down to money. For me..more time with my husband=More money to do so...i hate that.

6. Materialistic people. There are things that I like to have...but I am talking about the people who base there entire existence on fancy cars and name brand crap. People who value "things" more than anything i cannot stand that! They have no's sad really.

Okay so now to pass this on to SIX people!! Here is my list:

Congrats on your award. We would have given you a well deserved award ourselves but we are BAD at it. We have two to pick up and don't know how to get them home to pass them on. I know it sounds so simple but we have tried and maybe it's my computer I don't know. Hopefully we will try again this weekend. You do have a fun and interesting blog.
