Versatile Blogger Award

I started blogging less than a year ago, and to be honest my posts were few and far between.  When we got our new laptop I jumped right back into my blog, excited to be able to post more regularly and make it "pretty."    It's become a way for me to reach out and connect to people.  I have few mom friends in Pennsylvania, and it's nice to have an outlet.
Yesterday I got a message on MBS from Lacey over at Little Miss Nerd Girl.  She's presented me and 14 others with The Versatile Blogger Award!  I can't even say how excited I am!  Thank you so much Lacey!
Save this image so you can pass it on!
By accepting this award I have agreed to:
  • thank the blogger who presented it to me and link back to her page.  Please, take a moment to visit!
  • share 7 things about myself
  • pass this award to 15 newly discovered blogs
I'll start with 7 things about myself.
  1. My favorite TV series is the cartoon The Venture Bros.  I have almost all of the seasons on DVD and am impatiently waiting for season five.  It's a really inappropriate show which doesn't bother me in the least, and the writers are genius.
  2. I am a voracious reader.  I read my Kindle while I'm eating, a throwback from when I had to read the back of the cereal box during breakfast.  I also kept a flashlight next to my bed.
  3. I taught myself how to crochet, but I hardly ever finish my projects.  I made a lopsided blanket for Matthew and was going to make a gorgeous throw to match our curtains but I didn't use the right needle and it looks more like a rug.  
  4. I wanted to be an English teacher, but the more I think about it, the less suited I feel I would be for it.
  5. Since meeting Eric I've turned into a total gamer.  Some of my favorite video games are Oblivion, Little Big Planet, Tales of Symphonia, and Borderlands.  
  6. I'm sick to death of Lightning McQueen!  Nuff said!
  7. I have lived through hurricanes, nor'easters, blizzards, floods, a tornado, and more recently, an earthquake.
Now you know a little bit more about me.  I hope you'll visit the blogs I've chosen to pass this award to, to get to know a little bit about them!  I made sure to award this to blogs that *weren't* already on Lacey's list although I follow a bunch of those and love them too!
