Caffeinated Randomness and Over The Top!

I actually posted my Caffeinated Randomness, yesterday. So I will link to that from here. I am so glad that Andrea, at Under Grace and Over Coffee, is doing this again. It makes my Fridays so enjoyable to indulge in what feels like a natural mindset. Did I mention that I stopped drinking coffee? It was so much easier than I thought it would be. I have more energy late in the day, which was when I basically capsized.

Believe me, though, my CR is random and worth peaking at if you have ever hated filling out a form. It is titled, Oh, I'm More Than Just A Housewife.

I switched my Randomness because I was given this lovely prize, and I needed just a little more time to pull it together.

My dear little friend, Christy, at Critty Joy, has honored me with a blog award. It goes without saying that I adore her and her beautiful blog that she changes for each season. I have got to become more like her this year. If you want to see real writing and a real heart, go see Christy. It is no wonder that she got this award, she is definitely over the top.

I just saw the my friend Lauren at Living by Faith, also gave me this award, which is funny because I gave it to her (see below). Since I am about to post, she will just have to get it right back. I love that girl and she is over the top.

There are just people who I love in the bloggy world, and I really could go on and on…

Lauren, your heart is precious. I love to hear her faith and her quest for Tucker. I know she already got this, but those are not the rules. I think that she gives and gives. Lauren’s heart is over the top.

Andrea is caffeinated and graceful. Her journey is so real and wonderful…and most importantly faithful. I am still not sure why she lives in the arctic circle, but Canada needs good bloggers, too. I learn a lot about their holidays from her. Andrea’s genuineness is over the top.

Victoria, my wonderful prayerful friend. All you have to do is look at her blog to see that she grows daily in Him. It is a privilege to call this girl my friend. She is one of a kind, and I appreciate her. Victoria’s growth is over the top.

Jenn grew up with my husband. She is the real deal. Jenn lives a life led by the Father and passes it to her children. She is inspiring and writes beautiful pieces. She is just as sweet as she appears to be. Jenn always gives her heart to her readers. Jenn’s compassion is over the top.

Amy, and I can’t help it that Christy already picked her; I adore her too! So, Amy tells of the faithful family. She is so close to her new baby, I bet she can just taste it. I just saw today that they are number 22. Amy is a go getter and refuses to sit this life out. I get so pumped up when I read her. Amy’s enthusiasm is over the top.

Alisa…for pity’s sake, that girl can write. I just love to sit with a big glass of water and recharge over her latest thought. She is phenomenal and I am uncertain if there is anything she says no to. Alisa’s writing is over the top.


  1. I am just humbled to bits right now. Oh how I wish I did truly grow in Him daily! Somehow, I think I'd still be playing catch up, even then! Wandering for a decade does that to a girl! God is using our friendship to shape me and I love you for that and so much more! Thank you for lifting me up this way!

  2. You are a paradox! Mac n' Cheese, treadmill and water?... Who enjoys a cup o' "water" while they read?!? Hand me a chai tea latte!

    You are really too sweet! Your compliment will hang in the walls of my heart for eternity.

    I hope you will join us for First Friday Fiction! I can't wait to see you exercise your fiction muscles! Thank your for this beautiful award. My cup runneth over ;-)

    Blessings to your weekend!

  3. That is why I have to treadmill...because I love mac n' cheese.

    You both are very welcome. You inspire me with your words. Have a great weekend!

  4. Yum! Mac 'n cheese is one of my favorites too.

    Water is one of my favorite drinks! Of course I only drink water and tea...and juice at times so it's not like I have a lot to choose from!

    Thank you for your kinds words they made me blush ;)

    Happy Friday!

  5. Oooh, I LOVE Chicago! I went after Christmas 2008 with my cousin and two aunts, and we had a BLAST.

  6. I know, right? It is less crowded than New York, and I loved the store windows...beautiful! We walked and walked. So, much fun!

  7. Tracy, Thank you so much for your kind words! You brought tears to my eyes! I am so glad that you are blogging, it is bringing us closer together even though many miles separate us! You are a blessing to me!

  8. Oh my goodness, I am so touched by what you just said about me! Thank you!! And believe me, I don't know why I live here some days either!

    I am so glad to know you in this little blogging world - you are one awesome lady!

  9. You are definitely deserving of the award, and the way you nominated the other bloggers? Totally proves it. Sweet and thoughtful and awesome. That's what you are.

    And I love that the last thing you did before blogging was the treadmill. Reminds me I need to get my priorities right in this new year, I've got resolutions to keep!

  10. Thank you so much friend. You are such a sweetie. I am often so inspired by your writings.


Your comments mean so much to me. Thank you for taking the time to share what is on your mind.
