The lovely Joey from The Childless Mom gave me an award over a month ago. At the time I didn't know of 15 blogs to award. I kept telling myself that I would post about it tomorrow. So thanks Joey! I'm finally passing on the award!

The rules:
A) Grab the award: Done!
B) Link back to the person who gave it to you: Done!
C) Share 10 things about yourself:
  1. I am currently living out of a suitcase. We were evacuated from our house due to the largest wildfire in New Mexico's history. Fingers crossed that we get to go home soon!
  2. I start injections for my first IVF in 8 days!!!
  3. I'm a farm girl at heart.
  4. I am in the process of illustrating the children's book that my hubby and I wrote. (I'll post a link once we get it e-published!)
  5. I am obsessed with art supplies. I want to own all the different kids!
  6. The first thing that I packed when we were evacuated was a suitcase full of quilts that my two grandmas made.
  7. I love to read! But I mostly read trashy romance novels.
  8. Aside from going to work, I very seldom drive. My hubby ALWAYS drives if we are together and I LOVE that. I hate driving.
  9. I love Tex-Mex food!! Living in New Mexico is so strange because instead of spanish rice I get Posole (hominy, yuck!)
  10. I am a Diet Dr. Pepper addict.
D) Award 15 recently discovered blogs:
  1. MISSION: Fertile Soul
  2. Chasing our Stork: Our Journey with Infertility

And yesterday I got another award (all of you bloggy ladies rock!). I will do that one tomorrow and I really will!!!


  1. Hey Lissie! Thanks for the award... :) I meant to tell you in a previous post, when I was a kid, I always wanted to be a Bank Teller. When kids were playing "house" I was playing "bank".

  2. Thank you so much for the award, Lissie!! You rock! :) I'm excited to do the post...(it probably will take me a bit bc I'm working on other posts, but I promise I will have on up sometime next wk). I loved reading about you! That is so awesome that you and your husband are working on a children's book! And the tex-mex food is close to being on my list too! :)
    Happy 4th of July weekend!!

  3. Thank you for the award! It was such a nice way to start the day =) I'll post on it sometime this week. In the meantime, I *loved* learning more about you! First of all, I'm so glad you're safe. I'm keeping you, your family and your house in my thoughts and prayers! I'm also so excited that you start your injections soon (well, not the shot part, but the getting-to-start part!!)and I can't wait to read your children's book! So amazing! Have an awesome weekend =)

  4. Hello! My name is Esperanza and I blog at Stumbling Gracefully ( I'm currently trying to illustrate a children's book I wrote and I'd love to chat with you about how you're illustrating your own book. If you're at all interested please email me at


  5. Thank you so much for the award! It was a nice surprise on a crazy day. And I'm so excited to read more about your children's book! I have a love of children's literature and am always looking for new ones to read. Also, are you home yet?? I certainly hope so. I can't imagine having to leave home with just a suitcase in that kind of situation. I've been thinking about you for sure!

  6. IVF is getting so close! I'm getting excited for you!

  7. Yay Lissie! Better late than never!
