Versatile Blogger Award

This past weekend Ro from Ro-alwaysinspired chose me for the 
Versatile Blogger Award. 
Thank you Ro! This is my first blogger award - I feel so honored! :)

Here are the rules that go along with this award:
1. In a post on your blog, nominate 15 fellow bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.(15 isn’t mandatory, but it’s a nice gesture. Try and pick at least 5 )
2. In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award.
3. In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog.
4. In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself.
5. In the same post, include this set of rules.
6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.

OK, so here are seven random facts about me:

1.  I had my first taste of soda when I was 9 months old. My parents went to an A&W stand, and the story goes that I drank most of my mom's mug of rootbeer. Today I still prefer A&W.

2.  As a child, I had a specific method to eat Twinkies. First, pull off and eat the top of the cake, then scoop out & eat all the frosting with my finger, then eat the rest of the cake. And do it all...very...slowly. Drove my mother nuts!

3.  I taught myself how to crochet (with a little bit of help) in high school for a church project. I made a baby blanket for my youth leader and her first baby.

4.  I have TERRIBLE insomnia. Either I can't get to sleep until 2am, or I go to bed super early and wake up at 2am, then take a nap later.

5.  I have a stuffed hippo named Hippy that I have had since I was 5 years old. Everyone thinks it's terribly ugly, but I still love him to bits.

6.  My Christmas tree will always have a beautiful angel on top of it.

7.  As a child, I was known to sleep walk on occasion. Now I just talk in my sleep.

And now, for my 15 blog award recipients.....*drumroll*................
Be sure to visit these terrific blogs today!


  1. Awww! You are just too sweet for words, Bean. My first blog award ever! And I've had sort of a rough week, so you just made my day and put a much sun-shinier outlook on the world for me. I needed that, so thank you so very much. <3

  2. Oh my gosh, Jean, thank you for choosing me! It was a great surprise and pleasure to see. :)

  3. Thank you, Bean, for choosing my blog. What a treat for a blogger like me who is still feeling her feet in the blogging world. I'm right chuffed! Might have to toast myself (and you) with a glass of champagne. JB :-)

  4. Thank you so much. I feel as happy as if I won an Oscar (or how I imagine I would feel)
    I am so honoured that you chose me, a relative newbie to the blogging world!

  5. Thank you so much! :) It really made my day, thanks! :)

  6. Aww, thanks Bean! What a week this has been; my genealogy blog got its first award yesterday, and now my book blog gets its first award! I'm feeling the love. :)

  7. Thank you so much, Bean! What a wonderful surprise! Your way of eating Twinkies as a child, by the it!! :)

  8. OH MY! Thank you so much for choosing me! This is my first award and I couldn't be happier. :-) I was a sleepwalker too as a kid, only I would run around our kitchen table screaming that a black cat was going to get me. My Mom and Dad say it was the roughest few years of nights ever. lol. Ironically enough though, shortly after I stopped we actually got a black cat AND I have had at least one black cat ever since. So far, none of them have ever tried to chase me around the table like in my sleepwalking days. LOL!

  9. Angie, that is so funny about your cat!
    I am very glad to share some happiness and smiles with all of you today :)

  10. Thank you soooo much!!! This is a great idea and will be posting this on my blog asap! And that is the ONLY way to eat a twinkie! ;)
