My New Blog Design and My First Blog Award!

Wait a second, does anyone notice anything different about "Three Jewels In My Crown"? 
I knew I had smart followers.  It didn't take you long at all to realize
I have a new and improved blog design! Yipee!
I personally would like to Welcome you to "Three Jewels In My Crown".
A big hug and squeeze goes out to Jessica from A Blog To Brag About .  She is the genius behind this amazing blog design.  Together we crafted this amazing header that represents everything "Three Jewels In My Crown" is all about.  I'm seriously so excited I could pee my pants!  After 3 kids it doesn't take much to make me pee my pants anymore.  Raise your hands if you understand what I'm talking about ladies! For those who haven't had kids yet, keep practicing those keagles!
I'm also very thankful for each and every reader who follows my blog and for those who engage me through your wonderful comments.  A big hug  goes out to all of you.
Now if this wasn't enough excitement for one day would you believe that I have even more good news?
Well, today I received my very first Blog Award!
