Versitile Blogger Award

Ok, since I have been so horribly quiet, I obviously must continue the award chain. 
Kat from Living with the Kings has just awarded me with the Versatile Blogger award!

There are the rules in accepting this blog award.

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award.

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

3. Pass the award along to other bloggers who you recently discovered and think are fabulous.

4. Contact the bloggers you choose and let them know they won the award.
Man...7 whole things?  
1)  Most people I knew growing up placed bets on the fact that I'd go into the arts.  I started playing violin at 3, cello at 11, and have always sang and acted.  In the past couple years I did a commercial and still play in an orchestra (on cello), but largely have forgotten about my former dreams.  Well...failed to follow them, and wonder why is probably more accurate.

2)  I also was obsessed with costume design and would even sew costumes during classes in high school.  Which may reveal exactly how cool I was.  Today?  I'm pretty much limited to curtains, pillows, and quilts.

3)  I have crazy hands.  I can pop quite a few of the joints out and turn my fingers unnatural directions.  You probably don't want to see it.

4)  I am as stereotypically Irish as they come.  My ancestry is largely Irish.  I adore potatoes and whiskey.  I grew up in Dublin (Ohio), my high school mascot was the shamrocks, and I went to Notre Dame.  I did live in Ireland briefly in college and was known as the biggest Irish wanna-be ever.

5)  I am NOT observant.  My poor husband is forever complaining that I don't notice when he gets his hair cut...oh, and I'm married to a girly man (kidding, hun.  love ya).

6)  I pretty much always have a stomach ache.  My husband thought I was trying to blow him off when I got sick on both of our 1st two dates.  Nope, just the weakest stomach ever.

7)  I never leave the house without being covered in pet hair.  I swear we clean.  A lot.  My fur-babies just never let up.

Ok, and versitile bloggers:  (and I tried not to repeat Kat)

1)  A Quick Remark
2)  Bogue and Weejer
3)  Faith Fitness Fun
4)  Katy's Never-ending Story
5)  Mother Runner


  1. I love reading the 7 things! I'm like the opposite on the observant thing - I notice EVERYTHING. My husband thinks it's crazy that I could probably name the last two or three times I saw who in what outfit, when anyone gets even a trim, and what dresses were repeated at what weddings. I also have a steal trap of a memory...except during this pregnancy. Now I can't even remember to take my contacts out before bed.
