How lucky could I get? Well, I am nominated for the Stylish Blogger Award by a very talented and stylish woman — Linda Lewis of Lulu’s Musings!

Now back to why I am stylish, I’m confused too because I consider myself as styleless, not stylish!

But hey, a nomination is a nomination so I’m accepting it oh so graciously!

With the acceptance of the nomination I am supposed to share 7 things about myself so here they are.

styleless

1. My sole’s best friend is a flat glittered red crocs shoes. And my soul’s best friend is God!

2. I love stones and I wear beach stones earrings. Never mind if they’re not of the same shape!

3. I make bottle caps necklaces for my kiddos.  And mine too!

4. I enjoy pun and we paint it in canvass bags. And proudly use it!

5. My non-living best friends are books. It can deliver a sermon without hurting me!

6. I love smelling my hubby and kiddos’ armpits. One of the miracles of love!

7. My heart smiles on things that others consider ordinary or of no value. Drift woods, bended spoons, colored pens make me oh so happy!

So there’s my 7!  And Oh yes, I am not forgetting my 2 nominees, my 2 stylish and fantastic blog friends — drum roll please!

1. Max. My dog friend over at Creativity to the Max. It has dyed its hair purple and owns an equally stylish human named Judy! Max can you squeal one of your human’s life secrets?

2.  Alan. You remember the commercial of Oreo cookies where the big bro dunk the cookie in the glass of milk and the kiddo used a sippy cup? He was behind it! Alan, what’s your role in there again? Come on tell us while I chow my Oreo and savor the nomination!

And I am nominating everyone for best in smile!  You deserve the best smile so run to the mirror now!

What to do with unused ironing board?

I painted it with gecko and turn it to fun table for my kiddos and mine too!

D-ON’T.     I-RON.     Y-O!

Gecko Trivia:

It has no eyelids.

Expel a foul-smelling material and feces onto their aggressors.

Gecko toes adhere to most surfaces due to its special adaptation.

Some female is capable of reproducing without copulating with a male.

Some drop their tails in defense and may be generated later on, self amputation.

gecko on board

Thank God He didn’t make us like gecko!

No eyelids? How would the professor know if we’re sleeping or not?

Expel feces to the aggressors? And stink and shame ourselves? No way!

Toes adhere to most surfaces? I don’t want to run after my kiddos on the walls!

Female to reproduce alone? No dads? No falling in-love or out of love? Hmmmm

Regenerate tail? When old, how would a wrinkle-free appendage would look on me?

D-ESIGNED BY GOD.      I-N MOST LOVING WAY.      Y-OU ARE WELL-CRAFTED!

Now you choose what to discuss – gecko, man, God or table?

Blessing Tree

12/10/2010


 Come end of year we make a blessing tree and hang the things that we are thankful for during the entire year — some of it, otherwise, I need a very big tree!

This year here’s our blessing tree.

Blessing Tree

Here’s one of the things that my son is thankful for.

Here’s one from my daughter.

And here’s one of mine.

Start writing your blessings now and hang it on the blessing tree! Just grab a tree branch, put it in a vase and hang your blessings!

Now tell me how can we not thank God the whole year?

🙂


Hello, Rea here!

I personally believe that our name has a meaning aptly for who we are. And the good news is we can actually create that meaning especially for us — as much as we create our own life. Through the years I tried to understand who I am and it does change depending on what state I am at that moment. There were so many versions of me already and here are some.

On the first job Rea was

R-easonably

E-ffective and efficient

A-s well as a good learner

 

On living — again!

R-ising from the ashes

E-mpowering herself

A-cting really really strange

 

The latest as of this entry — hey I may be updated after hitting publish!

R-eveling in ordinarily awesome moments

E-ntrusting God with my life

A-cknowledging my brokenness

 

Why am I sharing the trivialities of REA?

Because this is a fun way to reacquaint with oneself!

Try it, the acronym thingy — share yourself here in the comment.

I know you have much to say about yourself so do it in paragraph for each letter!

It’s an honor to know you actually!

🙂
