A Bloggie update and some fun coming soon.

So, I wanted to write a really interesting post but I can't think!

I mean sure my mind is swimming with so many different thoughts and ideas. But sometimes you can have all the thoughts and ideas you want but you just can't seem to pour, mix and make the batter with it. So what do you do you go in the freezer and pop in a microwave pizza in the oven.

So my microwave pizza will be "other" peoples posts.

I haven't done this in a while and I thought it was about time. There are so many bloggers out there with so many stories of their own. That it's nice to recognize them! Plus you may just find a new blog you love to read!!

Well, this first blogger, I am going to mention was one of the first bloggers I ever found and followed! I was very impressed with her blog the way she wrote and how she shared her heart. I read, when she was engaged, I watched in anticipation for the wedding pictures and as I sat in my mom's hospital room waiting for Jeremy to be born I read that Courtney was going to have a baby! Go check the pictures out Clint is ADORABLE!!

The next blog I found a couple of years ago. Instantly I became a "fan" My sister Carole and I sat at our family computer and laughed, and smiled and even shed a tear as we read how her second little boy came into the world. Ever since then I followed her blog and still do she makes me laugh until I can't breathe, she makes me cry until I can't see the screen, she helps me to think deep...recently I wrote a post concerning their sweet family and her newest post you just have to see it.

The last one for tonight is a girl who is so super duper fun! I found her blog oh, I think a few months after I started blogging. I believe the first post I read was about her being at a campaign or something but what I really remember was that she saw Kenny Bishop there (A Southern Gospel singer) I was instantly impressed! ;) Since then we have become blog hoppers she hops over to my blog I hop over to hers it's great! ;) I also have been able to call her friend! Hop over to Morgan's blog she is the best of having all sorts of posts. Love, love her blog!

Okay, one more itsy bitsy thing...I need a favor.

I need you to express into word (or words) three things that you "like" about this blog. My third year blog anniversary is coming up and I'm thinking about a post and I need your help this year. Be creative!!

There will be some fun things coming up in the coming weeks in celebration for my third year in this bloggie world.

I know people read, but not all of you comment but for this please comment and leave your first name! Thank you bunches!

Also if you rather email me piecesofmyheart08 at either way creative comments!!

Three things I like about your blog? That's easy!

1. You write posts like you were born to do it! Even your random posts (which are my favorite) are very good!

2. I like your blog because you don't try to be someone you aren't. You are yourself, and that is what has drawn me to your blog!

3. When you post it is always inspirational to me to post on mine. You show that you are a real person that makes mistakes etc, just like anyone else. You don't try to lift yourself up in any way. this truly has been a blessing to me!

Can I write a fourth?
4. I love when you post pictures of Jeremy and when you write randomly~! Keep up whatever your doing, because, I love your blog and wouldn't change a thing about it! :)

Your blog has truly been a blessing to me!

Hi Ginger

You don't know me but I feel like I know you through reading your blog! I have read your posts several times over the last few months. I happened upon when I found a friends page and since then I have noticed so many Christian ladies writing and it just encouraged me so much! I prayed about it and started my own blog too! Congratulations on your 3 years blogging :)

Awwww! What a fun surprise to find!! (And I'm not sure WHY I haven't been here since Wednesday except that I've been working on my website instead of blog-hopping.:)) Anyway, you're so sweet. :) I love your blog! Narrowing it down to 3 things is going to be hard! :)

First, thanks for posting about Courtney. I used to read her blog quite often but hadn't been for a while so I didn't know Clint had finally arrived! :) He's so cute!!

And Ashleigh's blog I read all the time of course. Note of interest--she has gotten TWC since before she was married!! (Don't think she gets it now 'cause she's moved so many times we've lost her address, but we've "known" her that long!!)

Okay, now my 3 things.

1) One is the analogies you give--mixin' up stuff to make a batter, hopping around on one shoe--they just MAKE SENSE.

2) I guess #2 would have to be how "real" you are. (Yeah, Stephanie 'stole' my list. :)) I mean really--sometimes you write and just say 'I wanted to write and don't have anything to say so hello and goodbye' and I can totally relate!!! ;)

3) I like the mixture of posts--serious, funny, hilarious (;)), "everyday" and thoughtful. You have such a good mixture--you don't come across as "preach-y" but yet it's not abnormal to visit and see a "preach-y" kind of post. (Does that make any sense?!) You don't mind posting what's on your heart even if it's personal.

I could go on. ;)

I just love your blog! :) Can't remember what the first post was I read on here--I came over after you commented on mine. (That was like 2 almost 3 years ago now I think!)

Well, here are my three favorite things about your blog. I'm sure I could think of a whole lot more!! :)

1. Your love for the Lord and all your encouraging posts!

2.Pictures of Jeremy. (such a cutie) He is growing up so fast!

3. You post almost every day! I love being able to come over here and read something new all the time!

Happy Anniversary! I am so glad that I found your blog. I feel like I have met you, even though I never have!! :)

I don't remember when I first visited your blog but I know it was thru my sister Morgan that we "met"!

Things I love about your blog ...

1. You always make me smile, giggle, and laugh right out loud ... you have such a way with words and you can tell things so hilariously (why I can die laughing just thinking about that post about your sister calling downstairs to your Dad about a mouse! :))

2. Your pictures ... I loved "watching" your Mom paint the mural in the Baby's room !!! And your precious little brother, and darling nieces and nephews are always favorite pictures!!!!

3. Yes, I agree with everyone else you seem so genuine in your writing I feel like we've been friends for years ... I remember being absolutely estatic and so excited when I heard you were going to be a big sister again ... and when you blogged the day your Mom went in to labor I checked a million times awaiting the big news!!!

You're a dear, Ginger, and I'm so glad you blog because it's been such fun "meeting" you!! :)

Hi, Ginger,

I came here via Morgan's blog, and it's my first visit to your blog (I think)!

Happy 3 years of blogging!

And I am interested to hear that Courtney's blog was one fo the first you read and has been an encouragement to you! Now that I think about it, I think I have seen your name commenting there! She and I have been penpals for almost 19 years, and her gentle and quiet spirit has been a blessing to me.
