I am Fabulous...

Well Jennie thinks my blog is anyway, LOL.

For receiving this award, the rules state that I have to mention 5 things that I am addicted to, as well as nominate 5 blogs.

So lets get started with 5 things I am addicted to...
  • Books. I love to read just about anything. I love to learn about new things, and just books in general
  • My husband and children. No explanation needed.
  • Tea. If I was still in Honduras the answer would be Pepsi. But now that I am back in the US, I don't drink soda, just my tea. I will be sending back BOXES and BOXES of tea so that I dont run out like last time. And I had a hard time finding tea like I like (a hard time as in - not being able to find it at all)
  • Wal-Mart. I *heart* Wal-Mart. And I seem to have passed the Wal-Mart loving gene on to my children, or Mickey at least. Before I left Honduras Mickey said to me "Mommy please send me a picture of Wal-Mart". She is her mothers daughter, LOL.
  • The pulperias. Um, what can I say. I like the convience of being able to go, or send one of the kids, to the pulperia for whatever I need. Yesterday I had to go to Food Lion and thought to myself, man where are the pulperias when you need one? LOL.

And here are the 5 blogs that I am gifting the award to.

  1. Alan at The Gospel Cryer
  2. Damama over at Damama's At It Again
  3. Ginger at The 4 of US and A Dog
  4. Kelly at A Canuck in Cancun
  5. Brook Anne at The Moras Mexican Adventure


Then, I also got a Friends Awards from Anelys over at 3 Blooming Buds. The award states: "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
And here are the 8 lucky winners of this award.
  1. MamaSprout over on Honduras Sprouts
  2. Another gringa from Olancho Bound Gringa
  3. Jennie from Learning to Adjust
  4. Karen from The Rocking Pony
  5. Andrea from Swamp Suburbia
  6. Meg at Our Life

OMG!!!! Im cracking soooo bad with Mickey and the picture of Walmart!! That is what I call a FAN!!! My girls have a fascination with supermakets.... The one that we go the most is a french supermarket called CARREFOUR. They jump and clap when we passed by, even Mimi... Mimi says FUUUUR, trying to say Carrefour, it is soo cute... Of course, as I told you later, they stay with hubby in the car most of the time, but mostly because we always buy a few stuff here and there.... But they do love it when it is a 2 hour visit and they get to go and sit on the shopping carts in the shape of a car...

I enjoy reading your blog. When are going back to Tocoa? Tell me more about the food, do you like Honduran food, did you try new food? I know Tocoa is one hour away from Trujillo, did you have a chance to go to the beach down in Trujillo? I bet the kids would like it!
God bless you.

Thanks!! Love your blog!!

Kelly said...

I'm so glad to see you're back for awhile and blogging. I love your blog. I'm happy that you're doing so well, it sounds tough though, but your tough. Javier and Cally are still an item and are talking of marriage, they'll probably be in Tocoa before you know it.(the hot city)I would love for her to be able to get in touch with you there.

Um, what's a pulperia?

I would totally miss the pulperia too! Thank you so much for the award! It's so nice to have you back in the blogging world for a while.

Mentioning the pulperia, when I went to Honduras I was so suprised to see that my suegra would have my sobrina who is 3 yrs old go get her things from the pulperia and she would always do it successfully. Children are given alot more responsibilities down there and it shows you they are capable of alot more than is pressumed in the US. I also wanted to ask you if you had problems with mosquitos. When I was down there I stayed in a rural part like where you live and I was bitten so many times by mosquitos o "zancudos." I even used repelent but i still came home with over 75 mosquito bites. They liked to say it was because i was "sangre nueva" but I wanted to see if you had problems with this, and did they ever stop biting you because you were no longer "sangre nueva?"
