Versatile Blogger Award!

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

I am so excited today!  First off, I have had some fabulous features this last week for my  tea light wall art(Nifty Thrifty Things,  Too Much Time on My Hands,   Addicted 2 Decorating,   and Flamingo Toes) and I can't even begin to tell you how it makes my day to get a feature, and then I got this!!

From 2 wonderful ladies!!!

Kelli @ The Turquoise Piano and Laura @ Our Prairie Home picked me along with other fabulous bloggers to receive the Versatile Blogger Award!  I am super flattered and so grateful :-))  To have them pick my blog out of the million out there means so much!

The rules of this award are:

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave the award to you.  (Done - twice)

2. Share 7 things about yourself.  (Stay Tuned)

3. Award it to 15 other bloggers (Kelli did 10, so I too - this part is so hard!!)

7 Things about myself...

1. I {love} candy!  I don't mean it's good and nice when I can have it, I mean I can spend $10 at the Sweet Factory and eat the whole bag in an hour kind of love!  Especially sour candy...Zours, sour gummi bears, sour balls, lemon heads, those sour tape thingies, etc.  I also adore chocolate covered gummi bears!!!

2. I use to show horses and dogs.  I grew up riding horses and showing in both Western and English and then sold my horse before college.  After college we bought a barrel horse from my cousin and he was amazing!  I got addicted to barrel racing and was having a blast, but we decided to sell him a couple years ago because I just didn't really have the time or money to invest in it that I needed after having our girls.  I miss it everyday, but I wouldn't change a thing. 

"Just" My old barrel horse
3. My husband was a bull rider :-)  Not really about me, but it was a huge part of our lives when we got married.  Our first couple years were spent traveling all throughout California and Nevada going to PRCA rodeos.  It was a really fun experience and we spent so much time bonding on those loooonnnngggg car rides.  I miss that world a lot, but it is so nice being home on the weekends and having our house and family now.

4. My husband and I have known each other since we were youngin's (sorry about the poor picture quality)

Weren't those McDonald's B-Day parties the best?!
5. I have a super big fear of heights!  I'm not afraid of skydiving or hot air balloon kind of heights, but standing on a ladder or jumping off rocks scared the jeepers out of me!  It is super embarrassing to admit, but when I climb up some of the playground equipment with our girls, I get a wee bit nauseous and only continue to go on because I would probably scar my girls for life if I backed out ;-)

6. I love Christian music, especially K-Love!  I blare it loud and sing along with a voice only God could love (when no one else is in the car of course).

7. I HATE to bake!  I love to cook, but me and baking just don't get along.  I will fully admit that I tried to make these cupcakes that I blogged about earlier this month and they came out so poorly that I was almost embarrassed to have the kids take them.  They did taste good though, so I guess it's not all bad.


Now on to the good part!  The 10 other well deserving bloggers that I am passing this award onto...

1.  My 1929 Charmer - she is so sweet and does fabulous makeovers and has recently started a new link party!

2. The Essence of Home - I absolutely adore every picture she shows of her home!  It is just fabulous, you must check her out!

3. Rolled Up Pretty - Don't you just love the name of her blog!?  Her blog is just as fun as her name...some fashion, some personal, some sewing, some DIY - just love it!

4. Hello Lovely - if the ballet shoes on her header to get you hooked, her posts sure will!

5. White Whimsy - I got hooked on her blog when I saw her Halloween black and white mantel.

6. Huge Love - Not only is Tiffany one of my bestest friends from elementary school and my old horse showing days...she also has such a fun and inspirational blog.  If you are looking for a mood boost, get you tushy over to Huge Love today!

7. Emerald Cidade - Stephanie's blog just makes me smile when I go to her home page!  Her blog is crisp and clean and full of great inspiration!

8. The Salvage Collection - I just became a new follower today :-)) after seeing an adorable dresser she re-did.  My jaw about hit the floor when I started viewing all her work, she is amazing!!

9. Mom's Fun Money - Katie is so great!  She found my blog when looking for blue hutch inspiration and now has let me do a weekly post on her blog.  She has great money saving tips and coupons practically every second!

10. Adventures in Creating - Rachelle has wonderful cheap and simple DIY projects that are beautiful!!

Well, that's it!  Please go check out all these amazing ladies, included the generous ones who awarded me this award.  You will not be disappointed!
