My very first blog award!!

I'm tickled pink to say that my friend, has awarded me with my first blog award! I met Lora here at Fort Benning; she was actually the very first mama I met when I joined our playgroup! Back then she was mama to just three, but now she is mama to four. Go check her out! Thank you, Lora! You're the best!

The Rules:
1: Share Seven Facts about yourself.
2: Give the award to 5 other Lovely Blogs.

1. Even though we went through the worst experience with June's birth, I still want more children. Like, five more. I need to pray about being content, that's FOR SURE.

2. I just enrolled in school to become a NICU nurse. Specifically, I want to do Level 3 (the sickest babies) or cardiac babies. Inspired by June and Hadlei? Yes. Very much so.

3. I was born and raised in the deep South, but military life took me to England, and I cannot WAIT to go back overseas. I'll be very sad to leave my family, but I love exploring -- especially now that we have little ones. They'll get to see and do so much! (Don't cry, mama. We will still visit all the time!)

4. I love to cook, and I very rarely used any boxed foods. I even have an apron that I wear! You can just call me Betty Crocker. Or....Paula Dean. ;)

5. I can play the piano. I started taking lessons when I was 4. I love to play for our church choir, and I hope it's something I can pass down to my girls.

6. I really, really, really want to homeschool. I doubt it will happen, but I would love to do the Abekah or ACE curriculum (which is what I did).

7. I always, always, always, leave the car on E, much to my husbands dismay. I know I have 50 miles left when the gas light comes on, so I punch the timer thing and won't get it until I hit 45. Yes, I know this is bad for my vehicle.

Now I have to tag 5 other bloggers with this award. Hmmm....let's see. I'm going to tag:

1. Jasmine over at I met Jasmine about a year or so ago at church. She's a WONDERFUL, wise soul deeply anchored in Christ. She's been such a great friend to me. Her blog is new, so ya'll go give it some traffic!

2. Kara, at I've known Kara since she was in diapers! Her grandparents pastored our church, and her grandmother taught me kindergarden and first grade. She's married now (gag...I feel OLD!) with her new blog!

3. I just realized I don't even know your name! This is a blog I've been reading for a while, pretty much since I very first started blogging, I think. Such a sweet woman and new mama!

4. Paula, at She's a fellow military wife, and I read her blog for a while before I realized we were at the same assignmetn! Small (blog) world!

5. Deanna, at I went to church with her when I was little, then we lost touch as I entered my high school years. We found each other a few years ago and have been FB friends and blog buddies ever since!

So, there ya go. I finished just in time, because I hear a certain 3 month old baby girl waking up from her nap saying she's hungry! See ya'll later!

You will make a WONDERFUL NICU nurse! Although having 5 kids, being a nurse, and homeschooling probably won't all work together, but a girl can dream! :) I should say that if anyone can make it work, you can.

Wow, you are such a multi talented person I am sure God will bless you with favor to be the best NICU nurse ever!! Can't wait to see you, Michael and the girls at church!!

Awe, thanks! I'm Bethany, by the way, but everyone calls me B for the most part. Thus, HappyascanB! :)

I think your experiences would make you a fantastic NICU nurse.
