Hooray for Me!

Hooray for me!
I won Dave Ramsey's book
that Christian gave away at her blog.

Thanks again Christian!
I also received a cute tag from JuJu.
Isn't it wonderful? She created it herself.



Now, you all know how weird I can be about tags and awards. But, I thought this one would be great for EVERYONE to do. So I'm passing this along to everyone who is willing to try. I think it is hard for women to compliment themselves. Well, I suppose some women find it easy, but I'm not one of them.
So here it goes:
1-I love that I'm able to make people smile and laugh.
2-I love that I know how to do a little bit of a lot of things (painting, gardening, decorating, designing, building, crafting, thrifting, etc.)
3-I love that I can find beauty in almost anything.
Now it's your turn! What do you love about yourself?

Oh before you go, Kasey and Blessed Mama gave me this:

I'm supposed to list 6 things I love. I thought it would be fun to show you six things around my house that I love. But before I do, please know that I have my priorities straight. First and foremost, I love my Father in Heaven and my Savior Jesus Christ. I love my husband and my family. I love my friends, in real life and blog world.
Now on to the materialistic things that I love.
I love chocolate!
What girl doesn't?
My favorite candy bar is Snickers Almond.
I love picture frames.
I'm not sure if it's because they're made from wood,
Or if it's just the beauty in the simplicity.
I love a good quote!
When I was a teenager, I spent a summer
handwriting a book of my favorite quotes.
Now I just clip them on a rack in my bathroom.
I LOVE blogging!!!
I cannot express to you the MANY ways
blogging has blessed my life.
Please know, though, that if you have ever
left me a comment or even just lurked
on my blog, I count you as a blessing!!!
I love decorating magazines, catalogs,
blogs, websites, t.v. shows, etc.I love being able to take someone's trash
and make it into a treasure.Did you notice that those last two photos
were actually sneak peeks of my week long project?
I'll show you the final reveal tomorrow.
(Now I just need to clean the paint off my kitchen floor)

Congrats on winning the book! I enjoy listening to Dave Ramsey when I'm in the car.

I laughed at your "five miles, five min" because I am the same way!!! My hubs always laughs that I put so much on my list because it's never all doable in one day!

Love your blog! I always enjoy seeing what you have come up with.

Stop by our blog sometime...we are having our first giveaway.

Mimi Sue said...

It's so funny that most of us love the same things. Chocolate,the same magazines, you should see my frame collection. Most people think I'm nuts. It's so nice to have a few kindred spirits out there. Mimi

Ashlie said...

Oh! You and I could be sisters! When I read your list of things you love, I kept thinking "me too!" My husband calls me the "Magazine Monster" because I love decorating & home magazines (or any kind for that matter) and have piles of them everywhere! Ha!

I'll have to post my answer to JuJu's tag this weekend!

Holly said...

I am enamoured of your blog!! I have had such a good time strolling over many thoughtful posts. My favorite candy bar is Snickers with almonds too! :)

Amy Bell said...

congrats on the book! i can't wait to see that table tomorrow! Is it a table?? hmm....

Sara said...

as a fellow lover of quotes, i am smitten with your little quote board. but i'm also curious how it looks in context in the bathroom. do you mind showing a full picture of your bathroom so i can check it out?

please? :)

Robin said...

I really like your new coffee table project! Since you like quotes so much, I thought you might want to check out an idea for displaying that I included in this post on my blog: http://robinsblessednest.blogspot.com/2008/10/lake-house-decor.html. This idea is near the end of the post. Hope you like it!

AnnaSam said...

Joy,
I love snickers too!!! Congrats on your winning and I can't wait to see the pics of your finished project. Have a blessed day.
Juanita

Amy said...

Love the quotes. I have actually been wanting to display quotes in our powder room, but couldn't figure out a way to do it very easily (I had been considering stenciling some on the walls). I love your quote board. I'm going to have to create my own!!
