The Versatile Blogger Award

This morning I awoke to a wonderful surprise.  Our dear blog sister Ann of The Suburban Prairie Homemaker has bestowed upon me, the Versatile Blogger Award.  Wow, such an honor.  Thank you so much Ann, for your kind words, and for finding my little blog a worthy place to end up.  
I must confess, I enjoy Ann's blog very much.  Ann is a talented artist and teacher.  Her craft tutorials are designed to help crafters of every level successfully complete a project.  She's a GREAT writer.  Her articles are vibrant, witty, VERSATILE, and styled with her own unique sense of humor.  If you have not yet had a chance to explore Ann's blog go HERE to check it out.  You'll be happy you did. 

Here are the RULES for the Versatile Blogger Award-

1. Add the award to your blog.
2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you.
3. Mention seven random things about yourself.  (see below)
4. List the rules.
5. Award to 15 bloggers.
6. Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blog.

Here are SEVEN random things about me...

1.  I am preparing to take electric guitar lessons. 
2.  My favorite food is anything pasta, go figure. 
3.  Today, I am a homemaker, wife and mom, but almost 20 years ago I was a law enforcement officer too.  
4.  My favorite colors are bright purples, hot pinks, and lime greens.
5.  I am shy and quiet unless you know me, then you can't hardly shut me up. 
6.  I do not tolerate bullies.  
7.  I am 100% American.  I am 2nd generation American on my Dad's side.  My paternal grandparents immigrated from Colombia and Ireland.  On my Mom's side, I descend from a man that lived in the 2nd Jamestown colony, and a Nez Perce tribesman.  I am a mutt and am proud of it.  I have a diverse family background and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Ann's correct, it IS hard to limit my selection to only 15 blogs when I am surrounded by so many great, insightful bloggers that each offer something special and unique to our little homemaking/farmgirl community. 
THANK YOU for inspiring me with every post!!!  

I will be reviewing all of my favorite blogs today to compile my list of 15 bloggers to pass this award to next.  Stay tuned...
