{Blissfully Thankful}

Today I am heading to Nashville for Blissdom! I can hardly believe it, I am finally going to meet some of my favorite blogging friends from all over the country! {faints} I wish YOU were ALL going to be there! I’m bringing my laptop (faithful blogger that I am) and if I can, I might even put up a photo or post of what we are up to just for fun, so keep an eye out!

Before I go, I wanted just make a couple of quick comments:

1) A big thank you and hug to everyone who so kindly nominated me to the Internet Cafe’s 100 Top Christian Women’s Blogs! I was unaware of the list and I was totally humbled to be included. I am always honored that you want to hang out with me in my little corner of blogland! It just wouldn’t be the same without all of you. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart. And congratulations to the other 99 blogs listed–go check them out!

2) Friday is our Mr. Linky Beautiful Life post. I am counting on you to all keep it going. I am scheduling the post so it will be here for you first thing on Friday (see how much I love you all?) and will peek in while I am away to catch up (and I’ll delete any links to tattoo sites, so don’t even try!). Meanwhile, chat amongst yourselves!

3) If you want a chance at winning a $50 Visa gift card (and who doesn’t?), Amy at Mom Advice has a great opportunity for you to win some spending money, click here to enter! Even if you already entered this week, you can enter AGAIN!
