Another Award ~ I'm a {Versatile} Blogger!

Hey friends! Some fabulous bloggers have done it again and I am overwhelmed. Three lovely ladies have nominated me for this award and I wanna say thank you to Teri @ TheFreshmanCook, Jill @ CreateCraftLove, and StayAtHomeAdventures. Thank you, ladies, for you support and encouragement.

Now, I need to do a few things...

First, some random facts about me:

1. I love the color green. Just about every shade of it. There's just something so beautiful and fresh about it that draws me in.
2. I have a strange love for Lifetime movies. I know, most of the time they're predictable, sometimes lame, and not always well-written or acted. But, for whatever reason, on a lazy or sick at home day, you'll inevitably find me curled up on the couch or in my bed, watching LMN.
3. While I love beautiful shoes, I hate wearing them. I have a closet full of gorgeous shoes: high heels, low heels, flats, boots, sandals, pointy toes, open toes, slingbacks...yet, I'd much rather walk around in my comfy black flip flops or, even better, without any shoes on at all.
4. I usually keep my hair short - shoulder length or in a bob - but secretly long for my own hair team to follow me around, keeping my long lustrous locks in check like the celebrities. *sigh*
5. My favorite smells are coffee, old books, B&B Works Japanese Cherry Blossom and Black Amethyst, Armani cologne, my mom (she ALWAYS smells good), the smell of rain right before or after a storm, and babies. All of these things will put a smile on my face every time!
6. I love to sing. I've been doing it as long as I've been able to talk and can't imagine ever stopping.
7. I can't sleep without a fan on. I need the background noise. I grew up in a household of six and there's something eerie about a night without any steady noise in the background. Can't do it.

Next, I get to nominate other fabulous bloggers who I believe deserve this award. Now, I'm fairly new and still learning about this blog thing. So, from me, this award may not mean quite as much and they may have received it earlier on in their blogging careers, but these ladies have been an inspiration to me and I feel the need to thank them for their encouragement and support and let them know that I appreciate their efforts, their example, and their hard work. So, without further adieu, here are my nominations for the Versatile Blogger Award....

{Kara} @ HappyGoLucky
{Amy} @ OneArtsyMama
{The ladies} @ SixSistersStuff
{Lisa} @ FlourMeWithLove
{Terry} @ ThesePeasTasteFunny
{Melanie} @ BearRabbitBear
{Kadie} @ SevenAlive
{Dorothy} @ CrazyForCrust
{Sarah} @ LifeOnWalnutStreet
{Katie} @ PincushionCreations
{Vicky} @ SleepingInAnUnmadeBed
{Cortnee & Cari} @ TwoSasters

Thank you, ladies! This blogger is grateful that you went before her! :)

Here are the rules to accepting the award:

~Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
~Pass the award on to at least 10 other bloggers you believe deserve this award. (I say at least 10 because I've seen the rules read anywhere from 5 - 15)
~Include 7 random things bout yourself in the post.
~And, last but not least, notify the bloggers you've nominated by leaving a comment on their blogs.

That's it. Again, thank you to the three ladies who nominated me. I had no idea back in January where this was gonna lead, but I certainly am enjoying the journey! I'm so glad you're following along and hope you will continue to do so. As always...until next time, happy reading and, more importantly, happy cupcake-ing!

  8. Hi Heather,
    I'm so sorry I'm a little late responding to this. I have to say you are so very sweet and I am beyond honored and humbled that you included me in your line up! {totally blushing} Thank you so much. Your blog is so fun I love it here. :)

    1. I'm so sorry I thought I already followed,....... but no. I am now though.:)


Hey friends! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. Reading them makes me happy! If you're a no-reply comment-er, please change this on your blogger. I make every effort to respond but sometimes can't get over here to post a reply. It's easier for me to hit reply on my email and immediately let you know that I appreciate your support and encouragement. Thanks much!
