The Versatile Blogger Award!

Versatile Blogger AwardTo my utter amazement, I’ve been nominated by Andy for The Versatile Blogger Award! I have not been blogging long so it always amazes me that people are reading my blog. Thank you so much for the nomination Andy. I provided a link to his blog so please be sure to check it out.

Of course, there are a few stipulations in accepting this award…which I am only too pleased to uphold.

Here are the rules:

  • Display the Award Certificate on your blog.
  • Announce your win with a post. Please be sure you post a link back to me as a ‘thank you’ for the nomination.
  • Present 15 awards to 15 deserving bloggers.
  • Leave them a comment to let them know after you have linked them to a post.
  • Post 7 interesting things about yourself.

Now for seven interesting things about myself:

  1. I am an avid hockey fan. I used to have season tickets for the Minnesota Wild.
  2. I have an irrational fear of bugs that makes my family laugh as I run around screaming and flailing my arms when one flies or lands near me. Heaven forbid if one should land on me!
  3. I enjoy quilting. I have about half of a hockey quilt pieced together. I’m definitely not an expert quilter!
  4. I would move to Maui, Hawaii in a heartbeat and live right on the ocean.
  5. I have an 80 pound British Lab that thinks he’s a person and a lap dog! Yes, I do talk to him all the time as he follows me around the house.
  6. I custom designed the cover of my laptop so nobody has one identical to me and I love it!
  7. I absolutely love to travel. I’ve been to California, Colorado, North & South Dakota, Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, Florida, Hawaii, Canada, Mexico, Germany, and Poland. Some of my favorite cities are: San Francisco, CA; Chicago, IL; Maui, Hawaii; and Berlin, Germany.
