You are just so very sweet Cassie!
And you know what??? I got a new computer and am slowly finding my way back to my "favorites" and I couldn't find you for awhile and I was so so sad! But, here we are and I can't tell you how thrilled I am to receive your award and how humbled I feel that you said such nice things about me.

I sure hope to meet you some day in real life.

Have a great weekend! I'll post the award a little later today ok?
I just had a chocolate donut and now I'm going for a run. :)

Thank you sooo much, Cassie! I'm flattered, and your words make ME smile! =)

BethAnne said...

Why thank you Cassie, I am truly honored. Please check my blog for my acceptance speech - should be ready sometime very soon. Oh and I dont mind you posting your comment twice - makes me feel better when I see the higher numbers beside my comments below each post - matter of fact post all your comments twice, three times, whatever you like.

So, now here's the problem.....I can only pick 5 blogs? I totally agree with your choices of Fran and Sara - love those girls - I will have to check out your others while I am trying to decide how to narrow my choices.

Okay, so I propose that when school starts back we make a lunch date...what do ya say?
