I'm Speechless, Except For All The Stuff I've Planned To Say.

I read lots of blogs. Lots. And often, I see bloggers that get these little awards... 'The Super-Duper Blogger Award'... 'The Best Smelling Blogger Award'... 'The Blogger That Can Fit The Most Marshmallows In Their Mouth'.

I may have made that up.

But I've never gotten one.  I would think to myself, 'am I not awesome enough?' or 'why can't I fit more marshmallows in my mouth? WHY?'  But I always resigned myself to believing that one day, I would be nominated.

Today is my day.

I'm versatile!

Rules for the Versatile Blogger:

  1. Thank the person who gave it to you.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Nominate 15 blogs you have been enjoying recently.
Thank you to Alison from Heavenly Handmades for giving me this award!  Please go look at her blog, it's awesome. She's from the UK, so I read all her posts with an accent.  An accent enhances everything and makes me sound smarter.  Give it a try.

7 Things About Me

1. My parents are both deaf. I am fluent in American Sign Language and am amazed how often that skill comes in handy in my life.

2. My favorite smell and taste is coconut, but I don't like it in desserts.  I don't like the texture of it, just the taste.

3. I'm the least photogenic person you will ever meet.  The only good picture that has ever been taken of me was by a professional photographer who had years of experience and expensive equipment.

4. I fancy myself to be a funny person.  Often, I'm the only one laughing.

5. Before I stayed at home with my kids, I was an office manager.  Sometimes, I stand in the file cabinet section at Staples, so my heart will go pitter-patter.

6. I'm a compulsive list-maker.  The list of things I have/want to do should be completed in about a billion years.

7. You could call me a feminist, but I don't think women should be treated equal to men. I think we should be treated a lot better than men. :)

Now, 15 of my favorite blogs to pass this on to (I'm glad it was 15, I read a lot of blogs and I couldn't have picked just a few!):

1. Veronica at Life In The Thrifty Lane
2. Lacey at Humming Right Along
3. Jennifer at Just Peachy In Dixie
4. Patricia at Grammy Goodwill
5. Kaitlin at Not So Simple Housewife
6. Megan at A Lived In Home
7. Peggy at {Re} Pear Tree Design
8. Jennifer at Finding My Way In Texas
9. Tanya at Kreative Korner
10. McKelle at In De-Stress Mode
11. Andrea at Decorating Cents
12. Cristan at Coffee Cups And Crafts
13. Jodi at Make Three
14. Chelsea at A Simple Life
15. Carly at Creatlive

I had like, a billion more I wanted to nominate.  Phooey.

  11. Congrats on the award! I felt the same way for awhile, but I got this one first too, I believe. I am so very are fluent in 2 languages. I tried to get my daughter to learn Spanish when she was a toddler, and encouraged ASL. She speaks French, which is cool. I figured Spanish would be practical, and Sign Language is just awesome. I have forgotten almost all of it that I learned. Like anything, if you don't use it you loose it. Happy Day, Lori
