I Got an Award!

I still feel like I'm pretty new to the world of blogging. I've been at it for about a year and a half now. Maybe that's new, maybe it's not. I don't really know how things are calculated here in the online world. Is it like dog years? Or does aging happen even quicker? Everything else does...all you need is one click of your mouse.

I digress. I don't know if I'm really new or not, but I do know that I just got my first blogger's award! Pretty cool, huh? Staci handed it out to me. She writes her blog, called Consider My Monkeys. I think it's awesome that she calls her little ones monkeys too!

So, Staci gave me the (dunt, duh, duuuuh - that's supposed to be a drum roll)...
Versatile Bloggers Award!!!

I know, I'm pretty excited too. Like everything, though...strings are attached. There are a few rules I have to follow as a recipient.
Rule number 1:
Thank the person who gave you your award.

Thanks, Staci! I'm honored and thrilled!
Rule number 2:
Share seven things about yourself.

1. I need a new bra, but hesitate to waste money on one since I really want to lose a few pounds sooner rather than later. Arg.

2. I like to drink Mt. Dew. I know it's not good for me in any way, but it's so tasty! I'm trying to drink less.

3. I love to eat pork. And steak when someone else cooks it prefectly. I need to perfect my technique.

4. I don't like wearing sneakers. I like shoes that just slip on. They're quicker!

5. I want to visit all 50 states someday. I've driven through quite a few, but would like to really explore one of these days.

6. I have big feet (size 10) but little ankles. When I was in the hospital after delivering one of my kids a nurse told me I would have been prized in the Victorian era when all you really say were ankles and wrists, mine being to dainty!

7. One of my favorite traditions with my family are the Mother's and Father's Day pictures we take. We didn't take them this year, though, with all the running around and what not, but we will again because they're great! Here are our 2009 pictures...

See? So fun!

Back to the rules!

Rule number 3:
Pass the award onto 15 bloggers whom you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic! (Some of these are new, some not so much, but they're all great in their own little ways!)

2. Wilderness Childe
15. Nightlife

Rule number 4:
Contact the bloggers you picked and let them know about the award.
Hope you all enjoy exploring these possibly new-to-you blogs as well!

Thank you very much for the bloggy award! Since I seem to be falling off the blogging wagon these days, it is nice to know somebody is reading my little blog. I will share the joy-I promise-although I may break a few of the rules, is that okay?? P.S. I'm completely jealous of your beautiful Washington weather and greenness, since I live in the land of brown (the desert).

Thanks so much for sharing your award with me! Had to chuckle at your list as we have quite a few in common. Blessings!:)
