Versatile Blogger Award

On Monday of this week I was elated to find out that Keri from I Eat Trees blessed me with the Versatile Blogger Award!

I have to say I was very excited and honored to receive this award.  I’ve never received a blogger award before from anyone!  Keri is such a sweet person who comments on my blog all the time.  I so appreciate all those comments!  Thank you Keri!

The rules of The Versatile Blogger Award are as follows:

  • Thank the person who gave you the award. (done)
  • Share seven things about yourself.
  • Give this award out to other bloggers that you think are fabulous, interesting and deserving.
  • Contact each of the bloggers you chose.
  • Okay so here’s seven random things about me that you might not already know from reading my blog:

    1. I had 3 operations when I was 9-10 years old and one more when I was 14.  I have a metal plate in my arm that does not set off the regular metal detector at the airport, but if I am chosen to be wanded, the wand picks it up.  I have scars on both legs and one arm from all my surgeries.

    2.  I am turning 30 in less than one month.  Eeeeeep!  But I still get carded all the time, including at last night’s dinner with Benzo.  It’s a rare occurence when I don’t get carded actually.

    3.  I don’t like flip flops.  I never wear them.

    4.  I don’t like talking to people in public bathrooms.  I prefer to get in there, do my business, and get out.  If you want to have a conversation with me, let’s wait until we are out of the bathroom.  Public bathrooms are just uncomfortable places in my opinion.

    5.  Bees are my trademark.  I have lots of stuff with bees on it, like candles, towels, coffee mugs, picture frames, etc.  It’s kind of funny that I don’t have a bee anywhere on my blog.  I’ve thought about working a bee into my header but just haven’t gotten around to it yet.

    6.  I don’t like birthday cards.  I think they are a waste most of the time.  I’ll give a birthday card if I’m giving a gift card as the gift, I’m mailing the gift, or the card is the only thing I’m giving.  But if I’m giving an actual gift I don’t see the need for a card.  It’s a waste of paper and the other person is just going to throw it away in a few days. 

    7.  I like spy movies and spy books.  I loved that show Alias and thought it would be super cool to be Sydney Bristow. 

    And there you have seven random things about me!

    Now to pass on the award to some bloggers I read regularly and think are great:

    Front Yard Foodie

    Chocolate-Covered Katie

    No Meat Athlete

    Skinny Runner

    Be More With Less

    So you might have noticed that I have not posted the peach jam recipe yet.  This is because Benzo has not edited my videos yet despite my pleading.  Today he is working on the kitchen floor again so the video editing might not get done today either.  And sorry my friends, but if it’s a choice between him working on the kitchen floor or working on the videos, I’m going to pick the floor.  That project has been going on far too long and it’s this close to being done!

    1. Aww, thank you for your sweet thank you! 🙂 I agree birthday cards are a waste!! I never used to give them, but since having my son, we’ll let him draw all over a piece of plain paper and then turn it into a card for immediate family. Then at least it was fun for him, and it’s less likely they’ll toss his little masterpiece.

    2. I’m not a huge fan of cards either but don’t give gifts a lot so I give cards more often then I would like. My best friend and I started taking each other out for coffee instead of buying cards for one another. We would much rather spend the $3 on some quality time with one another rather than a piece of paper.

      1. I totally agree! I would rather spend time with the person or add that $2-4 I would’ve spent on a card to their gift.
