Dude! I Got An Award!

Jessica over at Ramblings of a Stay-At-Home Mom stopped by and granted me the Versitile Blogger Award!  How totally cool is that??  Definately head over there to check out her blog. You can find all sorts of great stuff!

There are a few rules that go along with accepting this award...

1.  Thank the person who awarded you.
2.  Share 7 things about yourself.
3.  Award 15 discovered bloggers

Since I have already thanked Jessica over on her blog, here are 7 things about myself that you may or may not know...

1.)  I LOVE American Idol and watch every single episode and sometimes cry when someone I have been rooting for gets voted off.
2.)  I also love The Voice and cry every time someone comes out with their hopes and dreams on their sleeve, sings their heart out and not one of the judges turns their chair around.
3.)  Though I get thrown off often, by the grace of God I always (somehow) get back up on the bucking bronco of life and try it again.
4.)  I recently cut off all my hair in a stage of depression. Now I'm butch.
5.)  While I am very good at writing out my feelings, I am not very good at speaking about them. (I'm working on this)
6.)  My children and I have a very loving yet laid-back relationship that others just don't understand sometimes. They feel free to speak to me about anything and everything and we all think the most insane things are funny.  Yesterday I was trying to make pizza and asked DD14 to hand me the cookie sheet. She got it and started beating DD20 with it. While trying to get it from her before I dropped the pizza, I tried to grab it in mid-whack and she about broke my fingers. She looked at me with her "OMG" face, I called her a name that I normally wouldn't call anyone in my "Exorcism of Emily Rose Angry Voice" and then we all couldn't stop laughing for 30 minutes afterwards. Yeah... we're a bit strange... deal with it.
7.)  I absolutely LOATHE Jersey Shores. Ugh, what a waste!!!!!!

OK, on to the BLOGGERS!  I've awarded the Versitile Blog Award to 15 SPECTACULAR Bloggers that I have recently (or not so recently) discovered and think they deserve some well-earned recognition! Here they are in no particular order:

1.) Welcome To Our Good Life
2.) Up The Hill
3.) The Puffy Mommy
4.) The Flying Penguin
5.) FlyBaby In Maine
6.) Our Simple Crazy Life
7.) Creating My Sanctuary
8.) Just A Bunch Of Momsense
9.) Miss Single Mommy
10.) 7 Little Steps
11.) Juice Box Dreams
12.) DecorVoyeur
13.) Blogging With Goodly Intentions
14.) Seriously Folks
15.) Becoming Versed

Whew, this took a long time, but I'm thankful for the opportunity to pass the award along!

Thank you Carrie! I've never received a blog award...this is my first. I'm new to blogging and I really didn't think anyone out there in the blogging world thought much of my blog...especially since there are so many great blogs out there. But, I can't wait to pass this award on cause it does make blogging a little more worth while. Thanks again. ~Shana
