The Versatile Blogger

I received this award from Last Mom, where I read about her life adopting and raising an older child with an honesty that I love.  I feel honored to receive my first award from her!  Of course there are a few rules to follow in accepting. 

These are the rules:
1. Winners grab the image above and put it in your blog.
2.Link back to the person who gave you it.
3.Tell 10 things about yourself
4.Award 15 recently discovered bloggers.
5.Contact the bloggers you have awarded to let them know they have won.

Ten things about me:
1. I have ran and completed 3 Marathons. 
2. I prefer heat to cold weather any day of the week.  I hate cold.
3. I played/practiced the Violin every day from age 6 til age 21...only reason I play here and there is because I did not major in music and it's hard to find time for music the way it should be done when it's not your whole life.
4. I love to sleep...too bad I don't get to sleep in anymore
5. My hairstyle changes constantly.  I love it and know that my hair grows super fast which is why I'm probably willing to do eccentric things to it.
6. I used to play softball and was very good at it.  I am also short, so the fact that I was a good pitcher where I was still was an issue.
7. I love blogging and check my stats every day to see if I have any new followers. (stole this one from last mom)
8. Unlike many women, I am happy being single.
9. I really LOVE crime drama procedurals and am very sad this will be the last season of 'The Closer".
10. I spent a summer in Thailand one year building small homes for orphaned children near the northern border.

Okay, here are my nominations although I broke a rule and only went up to 13, due to not wanting to double up on nominations as Last mom and I read many of the same blogs. Picking them was tough! I decided to just go down my "feed" list and go with bloggers that blog regularly no matter if their following is big or small. Ladies, tell us 10 things about yourselves! Go!

Thanks for the nomination, Dannie! I'll try to get to mine by tomorrow. :)

P.S. Three marathons???? You're superwoman!

Dannie, I had no idea you play the violin. I started playing when I was 11 and stopped playing consistently in symphonies when I was 22. I recently pulled it out to have it restrung in the hopes of playing again, but life has been far too busy. What a neat thing to have in common!

Mwa ha ha ha ha, now to think of 10 random things to tell my readers I haven't done before. I know I can reveal all of our college misdeeds......

PS: You really should enable your email, so when you comment on my blog I can email you back with sarcastic comments.
