New Blog Schedule, Awards and Stuff

Whoo Hoo! Happy Friday!! The past few days have been hard for me...lots of pain in my face, neck, shoulders and teeth. Today, however I can tell it's gonna be better. Between 2 chiropractor treatments, hot rice bags and sleeping the past few days I should be good to go for Homecoming tonight. THANK YOU for your kind, uplifting comments on my FB page. They were appreciated;)

Lots to share today!! So let's get to it.

First of all I have been given two Blog Awards this past week and am soooo appreciative!! Thanks to Kristen and Nan for thinking of me. Please click on their names and stop by their blogs when you get a chance. They are daily reads for me...Okay, first award is from Kristen..."Sweet Friends".

Nan gave me the "Cherry On Top" Award...


As with any award I'm supposed to share a few things about me that you may not know.....

1. I am a clutterbug. I hate clutter but somehow it seems to surround me. I mean I have a clean home but waaaay to many papers and little things I don't know what to do with. Consequently I have laundry baskets in my walk-in closet filled with stuff that has no home.

2. I love Autumn and Winter. I love it when the days get shorter and  we can put flannel sheets on the bed and be all cozy in the house.

3. I don't go anywhere without lip gloss and eyeliner.

4. I teach early morning Seminary in my church 5 days a week. That means I get up at 530 every morning and teach Scriptures for 45 minutes Monday through Friday. {i don't get paid}

5. My favorite music is light AM classics from the 70's

6. My goal in life was to be the next Barbara Walters and cover a Presidential Election.

7. If my husband and I were younger we would adopt a child from China or Africa.

THANK YOU Nan and Kristen!

Now on to what's coming up this fall on Words of Me Project!! So happy and excited about it.
Beginning THIS Monday, October 4th, it's an all new Challenge...

52 Words in 52 Weeks

I'll tell you all about it Monday;)

My goal is to blog 3 to 4 days a week with these topics...

Mondays: Share "52 Words 52 Weeks", inspirational ideas, ways to better ourselves, inspiring quotes, goals and motivation

Wednesdays: Creative Projects, How-to's, writing tips, my thoughts and dreams, creativity ideas.

Fridays: Friday Favs is back with all things random. From my fav clothes, blogs and TV shows to funny things my kids said or the weather.

If you have been reading my blog for long you might remember my "Make My Monday" interviews. I LOVE sharing your blogs with others and getting the word out! Instead of a full blown interview I will be showcasing a blog button and/or link on my sidebar each week. If you'd like to be featured please send me an email at  leslieackman@yahoo.com!!



I will be gone from Blogland from October 13th thru the 18th. Be on the lookout for several guest bloggers. Should be fun!!

Have a wonderful weekend:)

  1. I am learning so much about your blog! This is so interesting, the different projects you have embarked on. Where do you get your inspiration or ideas? Do you make them up yourself, or do you read certain books?

    Also - I love the fact that you teach seminary 5 days a week - impressive! You are one cool chick! So glad Leanne introduced us!
