New Background

Can You Hear Me Now?

Thursday, February 01, 2007


Well, I'm a 1-year old blogger! Actually, I was a 1-year old blogger on 01/31/07, but I forgot until I logged in to share the celebration!

While I'm "Sharing", I'll share a blessing I've only recently become aware of...someone in this blogdom nominated me at the "Share the Love" awards site. I am honored and touched beyond words (and that just doesn't seem possible for me). I guess I'd be one of those award winners that would get up to the podium and just lose track of everything!

I was nominated for a couple of things...Most Inspiring and Most Thought-Provoking... I think. I can only say anything that comes from me that inspires or is thought-provoking is actually from frankly, God has been nominated and from the looks of all the represented blogs in ALL the categories...God is nominated over and over again!

Now go on over there and put in a vote for some of your favorites...there are bunches represented and I'm going to have to check out some NEW blogs (well blogs I haven't visited before) and then there are those favorites of mine (who got my vote too) that I will visit as often as I can!

I have been at the new job for two weeks tomorrow and I still love it! I am busy and the days fly by and I feel like I am learning many new things every single day! God really knocked my socks off with this job.

To celebrate my 1-year blog-iversary I'm going to share 5 completely random things you don't know about me...until now!

1. I went to a large highschool so I got to take FUN P.E. classes (back when P.E. was required). I took Bowling I and II, Archery, and Fencing! I bowled a perfect 300 one time during that class...have never done it again!

2. I have dyed my hair since the day before my graduation and have done so every few months since then, whether I need it or not...and now I actually DO need it. My hair has been black, dark-brown, red, pink, fuschia, half blonde/half brown, blonde, even a blue shade for a few days.

3. I love movies that have dance in them....any and all dance, no matter how STUPID the movie.

4. I swore I'd never move back to Oklahoma when I left here...and I'm back...and I love it here.

5. I love taking tests...all kinds!

Okay, that's about it for this first installment of year 2...the journey through the blogdom!

Congratulations! I actually saw your nomination before you did, cause I was going to nominate you if no one else had. So Congrats on your year of blogginess and your nominations!

So cool to learn new things about you! Oh and my poem? Thanks for saying it was lovely, but it was really kinda silly. I was in a giddy mood over the prospect of actually seeing a snow flake, but guess what...WE ONLY GOT A BARE DUSTING and that only lasted till 9AM!!! UGH! I know you are sick of it, but we haven't gotten ANY since 2003!

Well--Happy Blog-oversary to you!

It's still amazing to me that while many of us have only been blogging such a short time.....the care and compassion that has developed is enough to last a lifetime!

My Blog-oversary is coming up on February 14th.....need to start giving that post some thought. Love the 5 random things.....getting to know one another is one of the best benefits of blogging.

Happy! Happy!

Congrats, Kim! I'm so glad that you're here for us to be directed to God time and time again!

And a perfect 300?! You rock. I'm happy to make it over 100...

Cool Mama said...

hey Kim! Congrats on being nominated - isn't that cool?!! I read your random thoughts, I was struck by how many things you like that I like. The dance movies - definitely! My kids laugh at how many times I can watch things with dance in it. ( Hey..have you ever seen the PBS special on ballroom dancing in the inner city schools in New York? It's awesome!!)...also the hair color thing ( i KNEW I liked you!!)..and not to mention the PE classes - I took them too, but never scored what you did! Anwyays..thanks for sharing more of yourself!

Congrats on the blogaversary and the nominations!! Mine is on the 14th....same day as Diane! Whoa.

Your nominations are very well-deserved.

I'm with you on the dancing movies. I'm always trying to drag my husband to movies like that, but he refuses. Drat him! ;-)

Tell ya time I have a test to take, no matter what...I am contacting you. I have serious test anxiety!

Dawn said...

And I nominated you for the other one - well deserved!

Congratulations on your blogiversary (or however you spelled it!).

I'm so glad you're enjoying your job so much. Right now mine is too much, too much!

Nancy said...

Congrats on your 1 year anniversary and the nominations. I agree that you should have been nominated... I love your blog. I do not think I ever met anyone that likes TESTS! WOW, how did that happen?

GOD WINS AGAIN!!! I know nothing about blog awards and such, but I would have definitely voted yours for "most thought provoking" had I known. I am still learning, even after knowing the Lord for 29 years!
