Spreading the Love!

I feel so loved today! I'm usually horrible at reposting awards that have been given to me, but I'm trying to turn over a new leaf and show my appreciation!

Tori (who I'm pretty sure I was seperated at birth from) gave me the "best part of waking up" award  : )
Rules are:
The guidelines are: "The best part of waking up..." award is awarded to the 5 bloggers that you're most excited to see have posted when you log into your dashboard/google reader/ whatever. Yes, only 5! If you're always checking someone's blog to see if they've posted, they deserve this award!"

This is such a flattering award to receive... it means at least one person out there REALLY looks forward to see what's going on in my life! Thanks dear!
It will be hard to choose, but here we go..

Expat Girl @ The Sand is Different Here. I love reading about her pregnancy, visa getting, deployment hating adventures!
Jennifer @ Real Love Stories Have No Endings. She is one of my IRL friends and we are about to be reunited! I love hearing about her life in my future home town. I'm not yet convinced that she is not Super Woman, between her full time job, being an awesome FRG volunteer, and being a rock star of a wife... I can't wait to take up more of her life when I get there!
Kimberley @ A Life Less Ordinary. Ahhh my cousin, Kimberley. She has a great sense of humor and I love reading her blog posts. Now if I could just get her to blog more than once a week! I think she does it on know... hold off on the posts so I'm even more excited to see them. Uhh huh.. I'm on to you!
Ashleigh @ The Storey Family. Another one of my IRL friends... I love feeling like I'm getting a little piece of home when I read her posts. She's at such an exicting time in her life between getting her Masters, loving on her awesome husband in their amazing home, and prepping herself for starting a family this summer!!
Heather @ ...and Now I'm a Grown-up. I love me some Heather! One of my original bloggy buddies, I feel like she has been there through everything! She never fails to make me laugh with her animal loving and taking in ways, or smile because I see her blog title coming true. I've seen her change (in the best way possible) and grow so so much over the past year and it really does make my heart smile : )

I received the next award this morning from A Marine's Wife @ Flip Flops and Combat Boots. I've just discovered her blog.. like literally.. this morning and I'm so glad I did! She gave me the "You're Really Going Places" Award.

With this award, I'm supposed to share where I think I'll be 10 years from now and pass on to 10 people. I'm going to skip passing this one on, seriously, I think I was the last to receive it. If you want to share where you think you'll be in 10 years, I'd love to see it, go for it!
Hmmm in 10 years....
I will be 37 years old - YIKES!
I will have a 10 year old child!! That is insane to me.
I hope to have at least one more child that will maybe be 7 or 8 and possible one other kid.
I hope to be even more in love with my husband than I am today.
I have no idea if he will still be in the Army, but if we are, I hope we are close to our families so they can see their grandparents, aunt, uncles, and cousins often!
I will be working part-time in some cute little book store/ pottery painting/ candle selling shop, but be home in time to pick my kids up from school, fix them an afternoon snack, tote them around to various sporting or dancing/gymnastic classes, help with homework, and have dinner ready for my handsome soldier when he trots through the door.
I will be physically fit enough to run around with my kids and do lots of outdoor activities with my whole family on the weekends.
I'll be just as much *or even more* of a pro in the garden as my mum is now. I'll have beautiful flowers everywhere and my family will eat my homegrown, hand picked veggies and they'll all praise me endlessly telling me how much more delicious my fruit and veggies are than the ones that their friends moms buy at the Commissary or Walmart ; )

See - I really don't ask for much, right?!
*Ahhhh.. I'm using the new posting layout and I can't find the spell check!! I can't be held accountable, please no judging until I find my safety net*
