Giveaway Winner!!!!!!!! *FREEBIE*

Today is the day...

Do you ever go out to a restaurant and wish to be one of those people who can leave a $1,000 dollar tip? Or you wish you could do something "Oprah-y" and pay it forward to the whole dang restaurant?  I think that would be so much fun!!!!!

We all have so many wonderful charities we hold near to our hearts for very special and sometimes sad reasons.  I wish I could give to all of them...don't you?  This giveaway definitely reminded me of all my blessings and to say a prayer for those less fortunate.

So here it is...

I am still in love with this giveaway!!!

I'd like to give the $ to
Kisses from Katie

Her story is remarkable and I am currently reading her book. She is in her early 20's and started her own organization. Amazing!


If you aren't familiar with this awe inspiring girl, Katie, check out Christina's blog {here} or go to Katie's blog Kisses From Katie. Such an amazing girl/mom/teacher doing wonderful things for the children of Uganda.  Christina, thanks so much for opening my heart to this girl and to the children of Uganda!


A couple of people asked for the Daily 5 graph to have all five choices. Click on the picture to grab it! Click {HERE} to read more about it.

  7. What a great idea. I'm new to this blogging world so I missed this, but I'm so glad Kisses from Katie won! We have followed her blog since last year and ordered her book before it came out! My daughter had to pick a "hero" to do a research paper on and she chose Katie. Such an amazing young lady. Loved reading about you and your hubby. Basal or whole language pick up line was HUH-larious! Great blog!
