"Confession Tag" and "Blog Awards"....

Hello my friends! Ohhhh no....I've just been tagged! Hehe! Rechelle over at Walnuthaven Cottage tagged me to play "Confession Tag"....thanks Rechelle (I think!...hehe!)

So here are the rules for Confession Tag:

Copy and paste the whole questionnaire and replace my answers with yours. You have to state and create a link for the blogger who tagged you. Pass to 4 other bloggers. Remember to inform them by commenting on their recent post. Display the logo anywhere on your blog. Last, answer each question with truth and nothing but the truth since this is a confession tag. Have Fun!

Congrats on you awards girl!! Gosh that tag sure had some different questions in it- --

Hey we both have birthdays in August!!!

Well I will hopefully get the rest of the breakfast area wallpapered tomorrow. Not sure when DH will have time to help me with the wainscotting but I am so glad to be getting this started.

Well friend- still praying for you for those prayer request- I have been trying to memorize this verse lately " He who sacrifices thank offerings honors me and he prepares the way so that I may show him the salvation of God" Psalm 50:23

I loved your little questionairre answers, you have a great sense of humor girl! You would be a great decorater. Cindy

Lynette said...

What a fun tag and so cute - loved your answers - all of them!!

Congrats on your awards - all of them well deserved!!

Miss Laura Lu/RMS4291960 said...

Good Mornin' Chari! Whew! I'm glad my name was not on that list for true confessions! Girl..you deserve every one of those awards! You are just one of the sweetest blogging ladies I've met. I hope you know how your sweet comments can just make my whole day brighter! I will be praying for you about the smoking and weight loss! I was blessed to quit smoking when I was still a teen cause my boyfriend and now DH was allergic! But the weight is still an issue! Even though I work at Curves I have no willpower when it comes to all the bad carb things...chips, cookies, candy, etc.! I'll pass this along though...I have started the new Curves Weight Loss plan and it really works! Don't know if you have a Curves around you but I think you'd love it! God Bless you today! Lauralu :)

Hi Chari, Congrats on all of those awards! I enjoyed reading about you, must be nice to only think of one thing that your hubby does that bugs you. I'm afraid I would have a really long list.LOL!! Thanks for stopping by and your nice compliments, much appreciated!! I will admit, Chase did look good in his tux! Kristen

Salmagundi said...

Congratulations on your awards! I so enjoy when you comment - you're the best!! Also, enjoyed the tag - I'll be praying about the quitting smoking issue. For some, that is the hardest thing to do. My mother tried so many times and never could - it finally killed her. I regret that I wasn't around close to have helped her. Bob & I quit 40 years ago - just decided one day when our 10-month old son got into the ashtray and made a mess. Neither one of us ever had another cigarette and did it without any problems. Good luck to you!!!! Sally
