The Versatile Blogger Award

Someone sweet by the name of Elena (Cropped Stories) nominated me for the versatile blogger award, such a nice thing for her to do.  All this time I thought I only had 1 reader lol, turns out I have 2 lol... ;0).  Thanks so much Elena, you made my day!  So if I understand correctly, when you're nominated you've won the award, it's just a great way to support other blogs and just to let people know you enjoy reading them.  So I'm supposed to nominate 15 other blogs for the award


Here they are in no specific order:

Happy Jax
Hot Coffee Mama
The Daily Wyatt
Happily Mother After
Diet Coke on the Rocks
Live by the Sun love by the moon
Mamahood, among other things...
Mom the Intern
My (Boys)terous life
Photo Tips and Sips
The Shades of Pink
Sweet Violet Photography
The Girlfriend Letters
This and That

I've either just found these blogs and think they are great or I've followed them for a while and think they are great.   A lot of them I have neglected (not on purpose) because I just haven't had a lot of time to read blogs, but I still think they are great!!!

Now I need to share 7 things about me:

1. I use way too many exclaimation points, I know that I do it, but I just can't stop myself!!!!

2. As much as I don't want to use the word 'anyhoo' I can't stop!!! It's engrained into my writing. 

3. I love Jesus, you may already know Him, but if you don't, you should!  He's AWESOME!

4. God gave me the gift of drawing and I do not use it.  Haven't use it since highschool, really.

5. My hobby other than photography is knitting.  I started about 5 years ago so that I could knit sweaters for my dogs (yeah, you read that correctly).  My dogs wore sweaters in the winter and they loved it so much they hated it lol.  Now I love to knit baby hats.

6. I'm on the 17 day diet and have lost 10lbs in 24 days... that may not seem like a lot, but it's progress.  I've lost inches as well and I'm wearing my pre-Emma jeans today.  It feels good heehee.  You should google it if you are in the losing weight market. ;0)  It sounds like a fad diet, but it's much like the South Beach diet and it works.

7. I'm working towards getting my degree in Web Design (I have not taken advantage of this knowledge for my blog yet - I'm lazy lol) I hope to some day have a web design/photography business so that I can support me and my daughter on our own.




  1. Thanks so much for passing on the award! :)

    I am like you in #1... I use a lot of exclamation points! I try to tone it down, but sometimes a mere period just doesn't seem enough. =)

  2. Thanks so much! It was nice getting to know you more, congrats on the weight loss and on working towards getting a degree in web design, sounds like a lot of hard work but definitely rewarding.

  3. Wow, we have a bunch of things in common! I am a drawer too but haven't done much since high school. It's a shame really. What a waste. Web Design is right up my alley; I was at one point debating graphic design! I love, love, love Jesus also and, yes I would agree, he is awesome. And boy do I use the word anyhoo, although I'm never really sure how to spell it. Anyhoo, anywho? Ah, whatever I guess :o) Yeah this bloggy award was a great way for new bloggies (with few followers) to get to know others.

  4. Thank you so much!!! I am beyond flattered!!! As you can see, I'm guilty of using way too many exclamation points as well. :) It's hard to express just how excited you are without them!

    So thankful for you and the bloggy love! :)

  5. Thank you so much for the blog award. You're so sweet :)

  6. AWWW! THANKS hon! You like me... you really like me!! Lol) I love getting to know you even more... we are very similar except I could not draw to save my life... or knit...hhaaa, the exclamation points made me giggle! I SOOOO use way to many too... and say anywhoooo!! LOL)

  7. oh wow, what a compliment that you nominated me...I didn't know people even read my blog. :-) I too love Jesus and while I use a normal amount of exclamation points, I definitely overuse happy faces, so I think that's pretty similar. :)

    Love your blog, this space is so cute!

  8. Awww!! Thank you for the blog award! So sweet!

  9. BTW I think it's so awesome that you nominated my sister's blog (Snaps) too! Isn't she awesome?!


Thanks for stopping by! Hope you'll leave a note ;0)
