Heartbreaker's Last Work Day...Fabulous Award...Prize Winnings

Wednesday, was our son's (aka Heartbreaker, his big sister's name for him...but he says he is the heartbreak-ee) last work day before we drive him back to the University of Kentucky.

So...while in Savannah, after dropping a couple of my resumes off, I thought I'd take a couple of pictures of him at his work...proof that he wasnt goofing off all summer. (He was blessed with getting hired at Dr. C's highly regarded medical offices. And he was also able to be a camp counselor to two week-long church camps.)

I'm so glad it doesn't bother him that I run around taking pictures.... and everyone there has been so great to work with. He really enjoyed working in the medical records room.

Working at Dr. C's office was the best summer job, since the working atmosphere was very positive, he learned a lot, and he was encouraged and motivated about his long-range goal...he's interested in the medical field. Perfect timing and circumstances.

It was great that Dr. C stopped to take this photo with H. Dr. C is so very busy! Heartbreaker truly admires Dr. C. Their family has been a blessing and H has built a wonderful friendship with them.


Something FABULOUS that happened in the last couple of days...

"Ahem...I want to thank...Mama M...and...

This FABULOUS Blog Award is so chic and totally fab.u.lous!
Mama M, I love your blog, your cute kid photos, your humor, your help..."

It requires a list of up to 5 current obsessions and that I re-award it to 5 bloggers.

OBSESSIONS: (I'm not too good about thinking outside the box, so my list is inspired by Mama M's):
1. Our family...I wish that we were closer to our 3 chick-a-dees...the 12+ hour drive does not make getting lunch or having a quick visit possible. And then with other family in Wisconsin, Hawaii, California, Minnesota, Alabama... gee whiz!

2. My hubby...he is my greatest fan and companion! Now that we are empty-nesters and he isnt deployed and flying helicopters all over the world, we get to spend time together...often doing nothing but just being together...and that's just fine with me. (Although a Caribbean or Mediterranean or Alaskan cruise would be awesome).

3. Getting my Etsy shop going... and letting more people know about it. I get orders locally, but am excited that I can direct people interested in the artwork I do, to view the samples on the Etsy shop. I used to get questions asked all the "Are your drawings on-line?" or "When will you be doing that, so I can show so-and-so,,,". And I am so happy that I finallly got my new business cards printed, so that I wouldn't have to write my crazy-long url address down! I use to have to do that and I would practically have to write in a spiral all the way around the back of my cards! (another thing NOT make your URL address ridiculously long-I was clueless and thought it had to be the same as what my title of my blog was going to be.)

4. Kit kats, peanut m&ms, cake, soft serve icecream, pizza, chinese food, mexican food, aw, I think I like just about any food from any country...the sky's the limit! And to think that I was such a picky, picky eater as a kid! I wish that I had a bit of that"pickiness" as an issue now, cuz then I might not have to think about exercising to lose and maintain my weight. (exercising should be on my list here, but... oh, well),

5. blog reading, blog writing, blog learning, blog hopping, blog "what-am-I doing?"...etc...
Mama M had blogging on her list and boy oh boy...I do agree! but it really is a lot of fun... I love meeting and getting to know about other bloggers.

Now, next to receive this FAB Award~

1. Molly's Country Memories Home Place: Molly has been with me from my earliest days...oh so long ago! (well, not really long ago, cuz I haven't been blogging long...but still, she is one of the first FABULOUS bloggers that I have met). Molly is a talented artist, crafter and sweet commenter.

2. Just Add Glitter & Stir: Maggi had hosted a FABULOUS Christmas Party back in July. She has lots of creative ideas and was the host with the most-ess...she made sure to stop and visit everyone's parties. & of course, we can't forget her cute little Toot!

3. Sweet Tea Diaries: Angela is amazing! What I love about this blogger friend is that from the beginning, she has been such a help and she was wonderful to leave a comment or email. Even though she has so many blog followers, she made me feel like I have known her for forever :o) ...full of fun finds, great giveaways, & stories of past and present that are always FABULOUS to read.

4. The Company She Keeps: BLC's FABULOUS blog is one of the first blogs that I have followed since I began blogging. ...a sweet blogger that shares her sweet family stories full of family love.

5. A Little Loveliness: Melissa's FABULOUS posts are full of great information, stories, and especially her beautiful photos of her beautiful children.

...& one more thing...
When? Tuesday!
Why? Cuz my entry was selected!
Who? Denise from Lauren Nicole Gifts!
Where? from her my my bathroom!
What? 6 of her ingenious, creative towel markers! You can read how these came to be, here.

Denise, does such great work and the details and packaging is so amazing! How cute are these?

(photo by me)

I had to get them on some towels immediately...even though at this moment it is only Heartbreaker using this bathroom (*edited since I first started this actually with heartbreaker back at college...there definitely won't be any towel mix ups!*) hehe but they will be handy when everyone is home for Christmas :o)

and I wouldn't put them where I have them shown on the towel...that was just so I had a semi-interesting view of the towels in that bathroom. They would be great on one of the corners.

(photo by me)

So...this has been a "last-summer-work-day", FABULOUS, prize-winning couple of days :o)

Blessings & Aloha!

Thank you Marie for the sweet award and the kind word. sorry I have been missing in action for the last few have been running like crazy. You do have quite a fine looking young man there. I know he enjoyed working for Dr C this summer. My Grandson Keif worked part time for a Law firm as file clerk while going to school last year. He loved it, but he worked full time for a Gas Pipe line this summer. Made a lot more money than he did at the Lawyers office. He decided he didn't want to be a is going to be a Nurse...he's on his second year and hopes to be excepted in the Nursing program at Christmas..he still haves a few requirements to do first.
I will try to post my award this week. Thank you again for it.
