I won a blogging award!!

Ta-Da!!  I woke up this morning to see this in my email!!

(sound the trumpets!)

Thank you SOOOO much Tecrin!!  It's flattering to know people actually read my blog at all, let alone enjoy it.  Heh.  I always figured this was boring stuff.  

Ok, well apparently this blogging award comes with some rules.  (as do they all)  So let's take a look:

1) Thank the person who gave you this award.  (check!)
2) Include a link to their blog. (Check!)
3) Next, select 15 bloggers that you follow regularly or have recently discovered. (Yikes.  That's a lot)
4) Nominate those bloggers for the Versatile blogger-award. (see below)
5) Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.  (that's easy!)

Ok well I'm gonna start with my 7 things.  Because, let's face it, I love talking about myself.  Why else would I have a blog?  I'll try to think of 7 things that aren't too obvious.

-I may have been born without an appendix.  I've had multiple scans of my entire abdominal area and they've yet to find one.  I might just be an evolutionary step forward.
-Tecrin, you mentioned wanting a tattoo.  I have 3.  I got my first when I was still in high school.  Heh.  My most recent I got in 2008, and it spans my entire upper back.  I love all 3 and don't regret any of them.
-I'm one of those rare people that LOVES their job.  I work as an office manager and I absolutely love it!  The company I work for is amazing and my job is a little different every day!
-I teach Sunday school to early elementary aged children.  That doesn't seem too odd unless you know me very well.  I'm the least likely person for that job.
-My biggest dream in life is to be a professional organizer.  
-I absolutely LOVE the smell of pickles but can't stand the taste of them.  Figure that one out.
-I have a liberal arts bachelor's degree in theatre.  AND I DON'T WORK AT McDONALDS!  (It's a ridiculous stereotype anyway)

Ok, now for the tricky part.  Nominating 15 people.  I don't think I can hit quite that many but I'll get as many as I can!!

Mythical Magpie most definitely.  She's one of my bestest friends IRL.  
The misadventures of an ordinary housewife.  I just love reading about your garden!!
Zen Habits Still one of my most favorite blogs on the net.
Books of Adam never fails to make my laugh until I cry.
Bridge and Beyond helping the homeless in my home town.  I've donated before and just love Sandy!
Pink Fluffy Warrior, always such gorgeous projects!
Attic 24 my other most favorite blog on the net.  It ALWAYS makes me happy to read this blog.
Natasha Show, posts about gluten free life, gardening and gorgeous photos!

Golly, I hate to give up so quickly, but that's all I can come up with.  Most of the other blogs I follow are really big name ones that half the world reads already.  And I really feel like the point of this whole thing should be more for smaller blogs to get the word out!!  

So there ya go!  Happy Thursday folks.  


  1. Thank you!!! I also don't have enough bloggers to recommend, but I will also do my best :)

  2. you're welcome. Yeah I think this is really just kind of a chain letter type thing.

  3. You're welcome for Zen Habits! LOL
