Say Whaaaat? A Blog Award, For Me?!

I can hardly believe it!  The talented and wonderful Angela from Fab Find Foodie has awarded me with The Versatile Blogger Award!  I am honored and humbled (psh nothing can humble me!) to accept this award.

 imageimage The guidelines for accepting this award require the recipient to (1) thank the person who gave it to you; (2) tell 7 things about yourself; and (3) pass the award on to 15 bloggers, whom you have recently discovered and think are fantastic.

So…let’s start things off with a huge thank you!

I started reading Angela’s blog, Fab Find Foodie, long before I thought about publishing my own blog.  It started with entering her awesome giveaways (some of which I won!) and then I read her reviews, recipes, etc.  Her blog was one of the inspirations for me starting my own blog.  I was very surprised and honored to receive this award from such an awesome blogger!

****AS I was writing this post, I received the same award (same award, different button) from Lady Hill at From Lazy to Lady!  Well of course! It’s about time everyone realized how awesome my blog is! I’m thrilled!  Thank you so much, Lady Hill! Now back to my big ego this award…

Now, seven things all about little old me:

  1. I wear corsets.  All the time.  Except when I work out, shower, and sleep.  And you’re right in thinking of monarchal times.  Kiera Knightly passing out in Pirates of the Caribbean from a tightly laced corset? Yup, I wear those (but without the…passing out part…)
  2. It is my dream to someday open a bakery
  3. I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and I may never have children because of it
  4. I also have Hidratenitis suppurativa (HS)
  5. Tornados terrify me
  6. My favorite food is quite possibly fresh-baked banana bread with chocolate chips
  7. When I was a kid, I collected all sorts of things:  rocks, feathers, coins, stamps, Beanie Babies…

And as a big finale, the 15 blogs who get The Versatile Blogger award!


There! I’m done! Hope you all like your award! I know I appreciate it!


  1. Ahh!! I think the exact same things happened to us! I had just finished posting my post and I saw your post!!

    Thanks so much for thinking about my blog!!

  2. LOL You are hilarious!! Seriously, your post had me cracking up! :)

    Now, I'm being sincere when I say: Thank You. Those are such kind words and I am completely speechless. (For once!) I am touched, truly. :)

    I'm so happy to see you blogging, and you can bet I'll be rooting you on! (And entering your giveaways...Woohoo!!) :)

    Double Congrats on your awards! I think your absolutely fabulous! :)

  3. CORSETS?? WOW! I'm impressed!! How the heck do you NOT pass out??!!

    And hey, it was really nice learning more about you. :)

  4. Thank you so much for thinking of my blog!

    Banana muffins with chocolate chips are a fave at my house. My kids prefer the muffins because they don't have the patience to wait the extra time for a loaf to bake. LOL

  5. Wow, thanks so very much ((hugs))! That just made my day :) I truly do appreciate your consideration!

    I, too, love fresh baked banana bread... I just may have to put that on the menu for my Baking day in July!!!

  6. Tornadoes also terrify me. I am on constant high alert even though we rarely get tornadoes around here.

  7. Thanks so much! This is an honor and I truly appreciate it. Corsets, wow! I probably need one. BTW, I was actually in the middle of a tornado two weeks ago. It is an experience I never want to repeat.

  8. Thank you so much for thinking of me and passing this award on! I agree about the banana bread with chocolate chips, yum! Never been near a tornado, nor do I want to. I will stick with the earthquakes in California.

  9. Thank you so much for the award; I am very grateful. I adore banana bread, but I have never tried it with chocolate chips. That sounds so good!


  10. Thank you, thank you!! And congrats on your awards too! I LOVE banana bread with chocolate chips....right out of the oven with a bit of butter.

    I will make a post later this week and pass it on! :)

  11. Thank you so very much. I have posted.

  12. Woohooo... my very first blog award.
