The Versatile Blogger Award

My first blogging award!
Last Two Saturdays ago, I had the honor of receiving "The Versatile Blogger Award" from Granola Mommy of 2! I was completely shocked and thrilled when she left me a comment with the news.  It was such a nice surprise to find out that one of my readers likes my blog enough to think it worthy of an award! 

Anyone receiving the Versatile Blogger Award must follow the rules to pay it forward, if you will. The rules are as follows:
  • Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post. 
  • Tell your readers seven (7) things about yourself.
  • Give this award to fifteen (15) recently discovered bloggers. 
  • Contact those bloggers and let them in on the exciting news.
First of all, thank you so very much Granola Mommy of 2 for following my blog and enjoying it enough to give it an award. I hope that my future posts continue to live up to your expectations!

 So, 7 things about myself... well, what do you all want to know? I'll try to think of interesting things that you might not already know. So.... 

1. I'm an only child. But I have a half-brother who is 9 years older than me (and I've only seen twice in my life), and I've had a step-brother & step-sister since 10th grade, when my mom remarried. I am excited that Monster will get to have siblings growing up, unlike me. 

2. I married my high school sweetheart (although we never went to school together - met at church). Ben was actually my first real boyfriend. We started dating when I was in10th grade. Broke up twice along the way... and ended up married 4.5 years later!

3. Our family plan was to have 3 kids, all around 2 years apart...so I guess we're on schedule!

4. My favorite animals are donkeys, penguins, and Orca whales. I don't know why - they just are.

5. My favorite food, besides junk food (hehe), is cheese. When I was pregnant with Monster, all I ever craved was cheese. So far, this pregnancy is following the same pattern.

6. I am a SCUBA diver. Ben & I got certified in April of 2009. I haven't been diving much, though, since I got pregnant in July 2009 and couldn't dive while pregnant. Since Monster was born, we only went out diving together a few times, and now... well I can't dive for a while again! LOL. Ben keeps very busy, though, with his other dive friends.

7.I am a procrastinator. A really, really, bad one, in fact. Do you know what day I was given this award? April 16th. Do you know what day I started writing this post about it? April 23rd. Do you know what day I finally FINISHED writing this post?! Today, April 30th! Yikes!
 
But now on to the fun part! I get to choose 15 other bloggers who I think deserve this award. I have discovered so many wonderful blogs in my short 8 months of blogging. Maybe one of them will interest you, too!
In no particular order, here they are!
1. Chill Mama Chill
2. Happenings of the Harper Household
3. The Southern Belle Baby
4. Purposeful Homemaking
5. I'm A Lazy Mom
6. I Heart Things and Things
7. Heather's Hodgepodge
8. Manager to Mom
9. Diary of  Devil Dog Wife
10. A Mommy's Blessings
11. Enjoying The Small Things
12. The Misadventures of a Family of 8 (soon to be 9!)
13. Neck Rolls and Toe Crust
14. A Year With Mom & Dad
15. Thrifty Nifty Mommy
