Good Friday, all!!!  I hope you're all prepared for a wonderful crafting weekend as always!

Yesterday, I had such a great day with my aunt.  After running our errands, my dear hubby joined us for a trip to the museum and after that we went to a new Louisianna-style restuarant for dinner -- the food was too die for -- soooo delicious.  I had a different style of jambalaya; here they stuff the jambalaya between a breaded chicken breast.  When you cut into it, the jambalaya just oozes out!  It was awesome!  The weather was great too, about 60 degrees and sunny, what a wonderful day!!!  Surprisingly, my aunt didn't tire as I'd thought she would after an all-day excursion.

I wanted to share a few awards I've received over the last week or so, and give back some love:

This award is from a very sweet blogger and my friend Elizabeth.  Thank you so much Elizabeth, I am so honored you passed this award on to me.  However, as I've received it numerous times, I will allow anyone that wants it place it on their blogs from me instead of passing it on again, and I'll add your name to it on my sidebar to show my appreciation.

This next award was presented to me by  Bobby and Jill.  I have to admit I actually cried when I read how this award came to be presented to me.  Thank you Bobby and Jill!!!  I love visiting your blog and I always leave so awed and inspired by your talents.

As this award is new to me, to accept it I must pass it on to another person.  This was not an easy decision because I love you all, I'm inspired by you all, and I don't consider you just best friends but my blogging family.  So to keep from having to just select one from the many of you,  I considered that I was a protege' and the roots to even beginning this blog stemmed from the inspirations and support of someone who didn't just guide me but who also was a teacher to me, I'd pass this award on to her.  Jen.  Jen, thank you so much for all you've done for me!  Without your help and always being there for me to call upon (I was such a nuisance), this year would never have happened!

Thank you to all of you!  You keep me my heart so filled, and I just hope I'm giving back just a fraction of what I get in return!

I'll be back soon with a project!

Wow! I'm humbled... TRULY humbled by this sweet award. Thank you so much.

I will admit I'm really bad at posting awards on my blog. But I'll do my best to pass this on soon.

Thank you so much Audrey!!

You deserve the blog awards and I so wish you hadn't put in the description of that delicious meal - I think I gained a pound reading about it.

No one deserves these awards than you do Audrey, I can't think of any one that is so devoted to thinking of others more than themselves than you. hugs

It's so unlike you not to pop in every day.. I always get a little worried when we don't hear from you. I pray everything is ok. hugs.
