Then evening roles around and I open my email to find something so unexpected that it actually gave me a new perspective on the day. Traci66 left a comment on yesterday's post to let me know that she's passed on a blog award that she had received. I've been honored with The Versatile Blogger award and I couldn't be happier. No matter how crappy my day had been to this point, it is way better now.
There are a few things I have to do in order to accept this award, but no problem. I'm thrilled to do it. The first thing is that I've got to write up a little something that to share with everyone. I have to post a list of 7 random facts about myself that others might not know. So here goes.
1.) I can eat an entire avocado in a sitting. I love them, with a little lemon pepper. Mmmmm, avocados.
2.) On the day I was born, out of the 6 babies in the nursery, I was the only girl.
3.) I've been writing since the 4th grade.
4.) I don't believe in aliens (little green men type), but I do believe in ghosts.
5.) I am the youngest of 3 girls....but I'm an only child.
6.) I've had the hots for Kiefer Sutherland since 1986.
7.) I'm a hopeless romantic, a serious pack rat, and a creative dreamer.
Okay, now the next thing I need to do to accept my award is to pass it along to 15 other bloggers. That could be a bit tricky as I'm not sure I know that many, and those that I do know have probably already won this award. But, I will give it my best shot.
The first person I have to give this award to is my friend Ruthi. Honey, I don't know if you know enough other bloggers to hand this out to, but you are one of the most versatile bloggers I know.
2.) The Girl Next Door Grows Up--She's awesome and I can't wait for her writing contest.
3.) Kimberly at Candid, Clever, and Cost-Effective
4.) Lynn from Midday Escapades
5.) Valerie from Let's Just Give It Away
6.) Michelle from Faith On Fire
7.) Kristin from Born 2 Be Mom
8.) Staycee from Survey Junkie
9.) Mellisa from Fun Saving Money
10.) Beth from Steals, Deals, and Life
11.) Alyssa from She's Mommafied
12.) Erika from Musings of a Stay at Home Mom
13.)Nicole from Colie's Kitchen
