You're right, it is a "small world, afterall"! We have many things in common.... and some not, but it is good to find out more about one another! I'm glad I was one of the new blogs you stopped by... and left a comment.

Hi there Teresa. Thanks for dropping by. I MUST get off this computer. I have been on it all evening. I will try to drop by tomorrow.

Tanya said...

I love your tag, I have to do mine soon, I was tagged too. Thanks for stopping by.
I'm following you.

Sarah said...

Completely wishing that I could say I was looking forward to going to Disney in 3 weeks! :) We went for the first time with our kids and both sets of grandparents in September. It was a vacation that we are all still talking about. Even my almost-4 year old will still say out of the blue, "I wish we could go back to Disney tomorrow." I hope that you have a wonderful time!

Jill Foley said...

Thanks for commenting on my blog. I'm curious how you found it. Looks like you have a nice one here too. I'll look around more when I have more time!

Jason and Vanessa said...

Thanks for commenting on our blog. I want to win :) I need to leave a comment today or Thursday???

Leebird said...

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my Prayergifts blog. Are you from Shreveport? I just read one of your blogs about your daughter and saw Evangel Christian Academy. I'm from Shreveport originally....don't hold it against me....but my nephew is a senior at (gasp!) Calvary! :)

My sister has used up a lot of bull horns at Calvary/Evangel games!

Would love to win the cardbox even though I'm the world's worst about getting things into the mail. But, I do write prayer letters and would love cards to slip my letters into.

Blessings to you today! Lee

Karen said...

thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog today. Looks like we love the same verse!

Marc, Sarah, and Luke said...

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. So, I just read your blog :) I'm so excited for you for your newest grandbaby coming in June. You mentioned in a previous post that his pregnancy has been a long road for your son and daughter-in-law. My husband and I can completely relate. Our little boy, Luke, involved a long road, including infertility and miscarriage. But, we're so EXTREMELY thankful for him, and we love him very much. It's been a fantastic nine months to have him with us. I'm praying for a healthy baby in June for your family.

I secretly love Deal or No Deal.

That Howie is just too adorable!

janjanmom said...

Disney Planner-awesome idea!! Keep it reasonable and you will be very successful in that venture!!

I planned like a crazy woman and the parks where we followed the plan (MGM,Magic Kingdom) were awesome and the ones where we did not (Animal Kingdom, Epcot) left me feeling we should go again and pick up the things we left out. An excuse to return....( ;

grammy said...

Lots of good info. Where or how do you watch Beth Moore on TV? I would like to do that. I would love to sing too. I have always had the fantasy of getting up on stage and singing like Susan (from Britons got talent) Everybody would be so shocked...including me.

Steph said...

Hey there! Awesome tag!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I love getting new bloggy friends!

Debbie said...

I'm so glad you participated in 8 Things. I enjoyed learning more about you and some things we have in common. I TIVO lots of shows. The reality shows are kind of hard because then I find out who went home if I look at the news or blogs. I enjoy reading blogs too. I love Beth Moore and Wednesdays with Beth. I wish I could dance like Dancing with the Stars. I love American Idol too. Fun!!!

Looking forward to the drawing.

Learned a lot about you. I love Disney World...only been there once (o:

Laura said...

I don't know you, but after reading all your eight things, I think I love you!

I could relate to so many of your responses. It sounds like you have some pretty big things coming up in life. A big "10" birthday, a new baby, AND a trip to Disney?

You are my hero.

Thanks for stopping by the Wellblog to see me. I love to visit new blogs too.
