Once...twice...three times a winner!

I am truly on a winning streak right now. First off, I entered a photo contest through our neighborhood newsletter. They wanted photos that represented Legacy Park. And, the first thing I thought of was the wildlife.

We are about 30 minutes north of Atlanta and live within a couple miles of every possible convenience, but our neighborhood exudes nature. There are raccoons, snakes, deer, rabbits, opossums, squirrels, birds, lizards, fish, etc. right outside our backdoor (sometimes inside the house...LOL), and we love it! So I submitted a sweet pic of a fawn that was feasting on my parent's beautiful lawn. And...I won! According to Neil, the prize is pretty good, too. I got an Ipod Shuffle. I'm not really into gadgets, so I probably won't use it much. (My cell phone doesn't even take pictures. Oh, the horror!) Still, I am super excited to win!

And, here is the photo that I submitted...

Secondly, I received a blog award from Alisha over at Izzy 'N Emmy. She has the cutest little girls, Izabel and Emily, and I enjoy reading her blog. The photos are always amazing and I so LOVE that she posts the "statistics" of her girls. (i.e., weight, height, etc.) Anyway, she gave me the "Your Blog is Fabulous" award, and I am honored.

Lastly, I received a sweet blog award from Dawn at Dawn's Diversions. I've known Dawn for a little over a year and I am so thankful for that. We "met" on Maya's Mom, which is now BabyCenter Community. She is exactly what I want to be, as a mom and wife. (Plus, her hubby, Brett, has an uncanny resemblance to Neil.) I only wish that we lived closer, so we could have play dates with beautiful Camryn and Luke!

P.S. I'm passing both of these awards onto ALL of my blogging don't say I never gave you anything. Wink. Wink.

Wow! You are on a winning streak! You may find you like that shuffle more than you think. Or Sam may really like it! LOL!

And, look at you with all the links. You're good! Oh, and you give me way too much credit. But, I appreciate the thoughtfulness.

I do wish we lived closer. The kids would love playing together.
