Versatile Blogger Awards

Pin It

*Sometimes there's a little more to my life than food. Friday's the day I'll share, I mean, most Fridays I hope to share those bits with you. We'll cover crafts, music, travel, who knows.

Last week I was lucky enough to receive an award. I didn't get a trophy or a nice shiny ribbon, but I did receive some acknowledgment from a fellow blogger, and because I found it pretty cool that he thought of me, I'm going to share the love.

My good friend P.J. over at
A 'lil Hoohaa beats me at Words With Friends on a weekly basis, but he writes a good blog that touches on many topics from photography to geocaching to disc golf. Did I mention he takes awesome photos? Yeah, so even though he makes me feel like a fool when he plays three-letter words for 60 points, he's pretty cool, and I owe him a big thank you for giving me The Versatile Blogger Award.

And now it's time I pass the torch.

Yes, the Versatile Blogger Award gives me the opportunity to show some of my favorite bloggers a little appreciation. Before I get to that, though, I'm supposed to share seven random facts about myself.

Well ...

1. I do not eat chicken wings. 

2. I never leave the house without nail polish on my toes.

3. I've had to wear glasses since I was in eighth grade.

4. I love to read.

5. I don't floss my teeth every day even though I know I should.

6. I own golf
sandals because I prefer to play golf only when it is warm enough for sandals. 

7. I could watch
Sex and the City reruns every day and not get tired of them.

Was that random enough?

OK, now on to passing on this award. I'm supposed to
pass this award along to 15 bloggers who write blogs I appreciate, and then I'm supposed to let them know they've been awarded. 

Now, I understand the importance of rules and whatnot, but the majority of the blogs I read focus on specific topics. It seems like a stretch to pass this along to 15 other Internet peeps. How about five? That should do.

Fancy That ... Fancy This
This blog cracks me up on a regular basis. Ameena writes about motherhood, marriage, and life with a hilarious dose of honesty. And she lets her daughter read to her. 

OK, so this is a cooking blog. You caught me. But it's a good blog. The photos are great, and the recipes always sound delicious. And she's studying to be an RD. I'm jealous. We do have the same name, though, so that should count for something.

Make it Do
I love to cook. I love to sew. I love to craft. I love this blog.

Thrifty Veggie Mama
I'm new to this blog, but I'm already a huge fan. She writes about vegetarian cooking and saving money - and she menu plans! I can't help but be a huge fan of anyone with those organization skills. Needless to say, I'm impressed.

Outtakes on the Outskirts
Anyone who loves or can at least appreciate all that comes with rural living will enjoy this one. It makes me want to raise some chicks.

Now go spread the love! 


  1. Congrats on your award, and thank you for thinking of me! The VBA has been given to me before, so I can pass on this wisdom to you that typically isn't shared when this award is given. The VBA actually has a blog for winners created by the person that started it and it is encouraged that you visit it and say hi so your blog can be promoted further!

    Here's the link:

    Congrats again! I enjoy your blog too.

    1. Thanks for the tip! I will have to check that out.

  2. Haha about the nail polish on the toes before you head out the door. I can think of other make-up I need first. Too funny!

    I got the exact same reward from a blogger friend recently. :) Congrats!

    1. It's ridiculous, but I don't think I've had "naked" toes since I was probably 12.

  3. I love to read, wear glasses, and won't go near chicken wings. We have a lot in common.

    Thank you for tagging me! And for reading my blog. You are the sweetest.

    Happy Valentine's Day! Have a great day.


Thanks for taking the time out of your day to show my space a little love.
