New Look, Award, and something VERY exciting!!

Hey All!! I hope you all are having a great week!! You probably noticed that my blog looks different... again :) I just thought my last template was too busy for my blog and my personality. Rose at Be Yourself is making me a header and a signature! :) She makes lovely things for blogs so check her out!

I got awarded the Stylish Blogger Award by Taylor! thanks :)

Here are the rules for receiving this award:

1. State 5 random facts about yourself.
2. Award 5 of your stylish blogging friends.

5 random facts about myself:

  1. I love watching older shows like Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, Little House on the Prairie, The Waltons, I Love Lucy and The Andy Griffith Show, I think they're much better than the movies (with the exception of a few) that are coming out now.
  2. I have thick dark brown curly/wavy hair.
  3. I love Francesca Battistelli!* I'm so happy for her and her husband because they are expecting a baby in the Fall :D

( I do not own these images)

4. I love storms!! ( as long as they don't turn into tornadoes!)
5. umm... I'm at a loss for this last one.... *taps head* I love reading other blogs! ;)

Now I will give this award to:

Sarahlynn at Just Hangin' Out

Rose at Through Rose Colored Glass

Bess at Bess Bag

Heather at A Hopeful Romantic


Elrania at Of Elven Elrania and Her Horse

*- I just thought it was cool that Meredith Andrews ( who is also one of my favorites! ;) is also expecting!

(I do not own these images)

She is having a boy! :) You can go and read more here! Francesca and Meredith both are first time mommies and I'm so excited for them! :D By the way I suggest you check out Meredith new song Can Anybody Can Hear me? It has such a special meaning to me... I've felt that God was far away but I just needed to have faith and believe that He is here and that nothing can separate me from His love! isn't that wonderful that God keeps loving up despite our sins and faults?! :)

I think it was Tuesday night that they were calling for this Severe Storm Warning, it was a pretty nice day until around 6 or a little later ( i can't exactly remember when it started to look bad ... its been a long week... ) anyway... I took these pictures:

ok you see the light blue at the top?? most of the sky was like that except for like 1/3 of it...

10-15 minutes later.....

And it wasn't even the time for it to be dark outside!! I just thought it was amazing that the sky could turn dark SO fast!! It actually didn't rain until like 2 hours later and it rained for liek 10 minutes!! Just a lot of lightning and thunder! :)

OK now onto the really really exciting news!! I'm going to visit Sarahlynn!! its her birthday tomorrow and my mom, my younger sister and I are going to see her and her family and celebrate her b-day!! :D Sarahlynn is one of my closest friends and I haven't seen her for a year and I'm sooo looking forward to seeing her and hanging out with her and another friend :) We are planning to watch some old shows and play UNO :) We are leaving Sunday/evening to come back home so we won't be there very long but I'm going to do my best to enjoy every minute of the time we have! :)

Well its 1:04 AM and I haven't done any packing!! so I better get going!
thanks for reading! :)
Love in Christ,


  1. Thank you Thank You I love it.

  2. Thank you so much, Samarah (I love your name)! I love the older shows you mentioned, too...& I really love Francesca Battistelli - I had no idea she was expecting! Your blog background is looking very nice, too! =) "Can Anybody Hear Me" has meant a lot to me, too - when I feel so utterly alone it's sometimes hard to believe I'm not - & I'm so glad I'm not! I'm so thankful for God's patience with me!

    Thanks again for the award! We have a lot of things in common!
    I pray you have a blessed & happy weekend!

    Lots of Love From Your Sis in Christ,

  3. Rose- you're welcome!!

  4. I loved reading your 5 random facts, Samarah! :) What's funny is that all five of the ones you listed apply to me as well. :D

    Also, I love Francesca but I've never heard of Meredith. I have heard that song "Can Anybody Here Me?" though, and I love it! ... Now I know who sings it! ;)

    I hope you have a great weekend!
