Terri and her family at Terri Terri quite Contrary is in need of some extra prayers today.  If you click on this link you will find a post that will tell you exactly why Terri and family are in need of all those extra thoughts and prayers.  I don’t know if I could do what Terri is doing so Terri is officially one of the bravest women I know.

Good Luck Today Terri and Family!

Another Award!

 I was awarded another award this morning.  This one came from Cowboys, Kids and Sunsets.  I just love her blog….I check it out on almost a daily basis just to see if she’s posted anything new.  So now it’s my turn to share some blog love with my blogging peeps. P.S. Thanks for the BITR Country Girl idea!

So without further adue here are my honoree’s:

Mercedes’ World –

Mercedes’ blog makes my day.  I know things have been rough for her and her husband since there Dalmation Patch passed but she still finds time in her day to put up a post and comment on other people’s blogs.  She’s also AWESOME in the way that she lets you know if there won’t be any posts coming up….Like this next week she’s on vacation.  Hope you have a ton of fun on vacation Mer!

Terri Terri Quite Contrary

I love Terri’s blog.  She’s not afraid to tell it like it is and her posts are always catchy.  Even when something really crappy happens Terri likes to try and add some humor to it to make it a little less crappy.  Plus, I’ve official decided that Terri is my hero…She’s doing something really awesome for her dad that I don’t know if I could do.

Around The Funny Farm

I just love love love Beth’s blog.  She’s a country girl from Pennsylvania that runs barrels, has a really cute dog and isn’t afraid to blog about just about anything.  Oh and I forgot to add she’s funny too!

Ranch Family –

I’m a big fan of this blog.  The blog owner’s posts are always done in a humorus way which is something I like.  There’s a lot of pictures on this blog too….I like photography alot!

Daily Blessings –

This blog is one that I’ve been fond of for sometime now.  The blogger always finds the good in even the worst situations/events.  She isn’t afraid to challenge her readers either.  She is a very inspiring blogger which makes checking out her blog that much more fun.

The designer of this award has asked that the following be passed along with it:
The origin of the Arte y Pico Award”This prize has arisen from the daily visits that I dedicate to many blogs which nourish me and enrich me with creativity. In them, I see dedication, creativity, care, comradeship, but mainly, ART, much art. I want to share this prize with all those bloggers that entertain me day to day and to share this prize with those who enrich me every day. Doubtlessly, there are many and it will be hard to pick just a few. The people I will name today deserve this prize, as do the very long serious list of bloggers I also enjoy to read. But I will name the first 10 and leave the rest of the work to all the bloggers that visit other’s blogs and are nourished by them.”
Here are the rules, if you decide to pass the award further to remarkable blogs in blogosphere worth to mention.
The rules:
1. You have to pick 5 blogs that you consider deserve this award through creativity, design, interesting material, and also contributes to the blogger community, no matter of language.
2. Each award should have the name of the author with a link to their blog.
3. Award winners have to post the award with the name and link to the blog of the person who gave them the award.
4. Please include a link to the “Arte Y Pico” blog so that everyone will know where the award came from.
5. Show these rules.
Thank you!!

Some changes are in the works here at Bumps in the road

I’ve decided that I am going to be making some more changes around here on the blog and I hope you all like them.  Here is what i’ve come up with so far:

1. I’m in the process of putting together a page specifically for the links to all the blogs that I visit – Which I am going to post in a minute and will continue to add to…so please bear with me.

2. I’m thinking about having a couple of contests coming up.

3. I’ll definately be adding more photography to both this blog and my photography blog.

4. I’m also thinking about holding a “Ask me anything” post or two coming up.

5. I’ll be adding a few little tidbits about myself on my about me page so please keep checking that out…..I just added a few more too.

That’s what I’ve come up with so far.  I’m sure I’ll come up with more things but I might just keep a few of them to myself and surprise the readers out there.  Also, here’s your opportunity to tell me what you want to see more or less of here at Bumps In The Road.  Please leave your suggestions here in the comments section please. 


And on that note….I leave you with something humorous that I found on one of the blogs that will be on the new “blogroll” page.
