Wonder Woman Award

Thanks to Dancin Queen (Wendi) for the Wonder Woman Award. I agree with her that we as women are a wonder! We do SO much all the time regardless of our family size. So, here are a few of the women I think are Wonder Women:

My Family: Ryanne, Colleen, Megan (sisters), Myrna (my mom), Mary (my mother-in-law), China, Dawn, Monica, Glenda (sisters-in-law)
My Friends: Wendy Price, BJ, Doniece, Heather Steffen, Heather Swanson, Vicki, Tina, Jessica, Laura
My Blog Friends: Candace, Wendi, Kate, Cecily, Dawn, Melissa, G. Parker, Sherri, Linda, Andrea, Crystal, Heather, Anne, Keeley, Holly, Tristi, Manic Mom, Sam, Lauren, Aleta, Amy, Steph, Debra, Darla, Tan, Cynthia ...
I know the list could go on and on, so if you're listed here, copy the picture to your blog and tell us who you think is a Wonder Woman!

Thanks for coming to my blog and telling me about the Wonder Woman award, Carrie. That was kind of you. I'll be away from my computer for a few days, but will get to it when I return. Hmmm--it will be difficult--you see, ALL the women I know are Wonder Women :-)

What an honor to be listed on your blog as a 'Wonder Woman'! Thank you for including me, even though I think my best qualification is being a Woman and Wondering what the heck I'm doing most of the time! I am now going to figure out how to get the picture over to my blog, wish me luck!

carrie & troy keiser said...

Smith Fam and Holly-- I'm sure you deserve it! I read your blogs and I'm sure you are Wonder Women! Thanks for stopping by.

Darla said...

Thank you so much for the award! I also appreciate the explanation of how to copy it to my blog! I would have otherwise probably stared at it blankly for a while, having no clue how to move it and then not even thinking to ask you how you moved it when you got it! :) It was good to read your new story too, about yourself! I don't even dare go there yet because I'm from a huge family, would probably find it all very pertinent to write about and would put everyone to sleep! But I found it interesting that you said about your husband that you want to marry him or someone like him someday...I said almost the exact same thing, word for word about my husband after meeting him! I remember telling someone that I met this awesome guy (I was 19 at the time and he was 25...I thought he was more like 29 or so because I mistakenly understood he was the same age as one of my older brothers) and I had decided that I could see myself marrying him or someone just like him someday!

Darla said...

Oh, p.s. The reason I mentioned his age is that at 19, thinking I had met someone 29, I just thought that he was a little too old for me but maybe someone just like him or else him eventually, when I got a little older and age gaps aren't so important! Then I found out that we were a lot closer in age and decided then that I probably would never find anyone quite as good as him so I would pursue him then...not settle for "someone just like him" :) I have never regretted my pursuit!!!

carrie & troy keiser said...

Darla- Glad that you enjoyed reading the posts abt me. Thanks for sharing a littl eof your story with me. I really like this getting to know people we would otherwise never meet.

Lauren@Baseballs&Bows said...
