Versatile Blogger

First off I wanted to thank and acknowledge a couple 
of bloggers who gave me the "Versatile Blogger Award" this summer.  

Thank you to 

There are a couple of rules for accepting this award.... 

1)  Thank the blogger who nominated you!  Thanks again ladies! 
2)  Include a link to their site.  See above...
3)  Include the award image in your post.
4) Write 7 random facts about yourself.
5) Nominate 15 other bloggers.

Here are my random facts:

1) I have always loved to read. In Elementary School I was in a reading club group with my best friends called "Battle of the Books" where we traveled around answering questions about books we had read against other students. Nerd alerts! 

2) My favorite dessert is cheesecake. I could eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Did you know yesterday was national cheesecake day? And I didn't eat it. Sad.

3) I still sleep with my baby blanket.

4) I haven't been on a plane in like 5 years.

5) I get really frustrated and competitive when playing Wii games. I swear like a sailor. It's bad. Especially since I'm usually playing with kids. Most of the time- my own.

6) I was kicked out of elementary school band. Sort of. It was 4th Grade and everyone was allowed to now join band or orchestra if they wanted. It was the new, cool thing to do. So I joined band and chose the flute. I could never make a sound, so I faked it. The teacher told me I had to learn or quit. I quit. 

7) I once was riding bikes with my friend Jaime in the desert by our house and we discovered a desert tortoise.  I thought it was cute and put it in my bike basket.  We named it Mitchell and left it in my house while my dad was taking a nap.  We left and went to Jaime's house and came home to a house full of turtle poop. My parents surprisingly let me keep him (outside). My mom called the state to see what we should feed him and we were told that I had broken the law by taking an animal from the desert. Thus, we had to return him. Tear.

I am nominating the following bloggers :
