Bloggers are the best!

First off, I would like to thank the academy...

Seriously...blog friends are awesome!  It's amazing how wonderful and accepted complete strangers blog friends can make you feel...even when your blog is a tiny "blip" in the blog world.

I was very humbled when I received the Liebster Blog Award a little while back, and now I couldn't believe it when I received a comment from Emily at Entirely Emily saying she had nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award!  Thank you Emily...so very much!!!

Blogging has been something that has brought me so much joy in the short while that I have been doing it.  I'm so excited to see what my blogging "adventure" will evolve into!

 Here are the rules for this award:
 1. Thank the Blogger who nominated you.
 2. Include a link to their site.
 3. Include the award image in your post.
 4. Give 7 random facts about yourself.
 5. Nominate 15 other Bloggers for the award.
 6. When nominating, include a link to their site.
 7. Let other Bloggers know they have been nominated.

Now, for seven random facts...{this could be hard...I always have a hard time with these things}

1.  I hate don't particularly care to cook or bake...all because of the clean up part.

2.  I am absolutely creeped out by feet {except for my kids' feet...they're OK still}...I find them so disgusting!  

3.  I am deathly afraid of mice and other furry little crawly creatures {rodents} with tails.

4.  I LOVE chocolate!!!  If it was healthy, my perfect breakfast would be chocolate cake with ooey gooey chocolate frosting.

5.  I have an impeccable sense of direction {even in unfamiliar territory}, people call me a human navigation system. 

6.  I love getting my hair done {even if it's by my kids}, if it was in my budget I would go to the salon once a week.

7.  My favorite movie ever is ELF...I watch it year round and it never, ever gets old.

And here are, in no particular order and not that I don't love you all because I do, the 15 blogs I want to nominate for the award:

{if any of you have received this award already, please don't feel as if you need to do it again}
