Versatile Blogger Award

I hate bombarding all of my readers with a second post in one day, but I just couldn't contain myself!! 

A great big THANK YOU to The Awkward Kitchenette for nominating me for this wonderful award. I am so honored to get recognized by such a wonderful lady!  

If you haven't checked her out, her blog the Awkward Kitchenette is full of mouth-watering recipes!  Click on over and check her out!

Now the 'rules' for this award are:

  1. Thank the Blogger who nominated you
  2. Include a link to their site
  3. Include the award image in your post
  4. Give 7 random facts about yourself
  5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award
  6. When nominating, include a link to their site
  7. Let the other bloggers know they've been nominated.  

Okay, on to number 4.  Hrm. 7 facts about me: 

1. I can wiggle my ears.  It's a gift, I know.  I guess it was passed down to my from my mother and from me to my son. Kolby is the only other one who can wiggle his ears. But, don't ask us to do it when we are smiling or laughing.  
2. I have an obsession with Dr Pepper.  I have tried to live without it; I can't...
3. I super big puffy heart to sit and play Mario with the boys.
4. I hated to cook until about 5 years ago.  In fact, as previously stated, I even told my husband when we met " I ain't no Betty Crocker"  LOL!! 
5. I can make a huge mess with paint.  In fact, if you look at my 'craft' clothes, you can tell all the colors I have painted since wearing them.
6. I cannot stand to wear makeup.
7.  I love to wear my old Cabela's ball cap on a daily basis.  

Now, I think #5 was even harder than #4. I struggle with nominating other bloggers.  Everyone out there is so wonderful.  But, I managed to narrow the list to 15.  Here they 
are, in no particular order:

  1. Jaime @ Love Bakes Good Cakes
  2. Daisy @ Lovely Memories
  3. Debra Ann @Granny's Southern Cooking
  4. Rina @ I Thee Cook
  5. Evelyn @ My Turn 4 Us
  6. Maria @ Sweet Yarns
  7. Jade @ An Organized Mess
  8. Marsha @ The Better Baker
  9. Flavors by Four
  10. Abby @ Only Impossible Until Done
  11. Amanda @ Life Experience Needed
  12. Jenny @ The NY Melrose Family
  13. Krista @ Everyday Moms Meals
  14. Imagic Reflections
  15. Alese @ 2 Crafty 4 My Skirt

Whew!  Congratulations, ladies!  I love all of you and all that you do!! 
Keep on Blogging!
