The Versatile Blogger Award

I was going through the comments on my blog last night when I came across one that took me by surprise – and in a very good way!  The lovely Reese over at The Importance of Being Reese has presented me with the Versatile Blogger Award.  If you aren’t familiar with her blog be sure to head over and check it out.  There’s a little bit of something for everyone!

I normally don’t put a lot of stock into awards because they are, for the most part, just glorified popularity contests.  However, I adore this award because it was given to me by a peer, no nominations, no voting, just one blogger recognizing another and I honestly don’t think you can get any higher praise than that!

Here are the rules for the Versatile Blogger Award: 
1. Add the award to your blog. 2. Thank the person who presented it to you. 3. List seven random facts about yourself. 4. List the rules. 5. Pass the award onto seven other bloggers. 6. Inform each blogger they have won by posting a comment on their blog.

Ok random facts, seven of them…

  1. I have blue eyes but my right eye is about 1/4 brown
  2. I am afraid of heights
  3. I’m also afraid of balloons popping.  I’m sure there is some hard to pronounce official name for that but I’ve never bothered to look it up
  4. My favorite movie of all time is the Wizard of Oz
  5. I don’t like coffee and I wonder why other people do
  6. I once ate an ant on a nature hike.  It was a red ant and it tasted like cinammon
  7. I have two tattoos and am thinking about a third

Wow, now I get to nominate seven other bloggers!  I love this part best of all.  Here we go:

Mommy Only Has 2 Hands
Yee Wittle Things 
Insane Mamacita’s Musings
The Knit Wit By Shair

Ok, that was tough!  There are so many great blogs that I frequent it was incredibly difficult to pick just seven.  If they aren’t already on your “must read” list please be sure to stop and check out these amazing blogs!  Thank you again Reese for the award and letting me be part of this.

  8. Thank you Sarah 🙂 I have to tell you it was hard to just pick seven. I could have given one to everyone who has commented here so far!

  9. People often assume that I wear colored contacts and that one of them has torn.

  10. Congratulations!! I agree it is nice to be recognized by a peer!

  11. Ugh my two year drives me crazy, running around squeezing balloons. She thinks it's the funniest thing ever and I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for the silly thing to pop!

  12. Hoe does she feel about the flying monkeys? They always sort of spooked me when I was little.

  13. Wow, this cheered me up after a pretty rotten few days! Thanks Shayna, I think the last time I recieved an award for anything I was 11 and in High School!

  14. Congratulations on your award! You deserve the recognition after all the hard work you put into your wonderful blog! Most of those 7 things could be said about me too, except the balloons and I have never eaten an ant. I did LOL when you said it tasted like cinnamon! Thank you for passing the award on to me! I am honored 🙂 I will try very hard to get my post scheduled soon. I have a few sponsors on me to get my reviews up first though. You know how that goes!

  15. Congrats on the award Shayna! You deserve it! And thank you SO very much for passing it on to me as well, I really appreciate it…*blush*. I'll definitely try to get it posted and when I do, I'll send you a link! Btw, a red ant??!! EEEeeek! lol…but interesting that it tastes like cinnamon. I don't like coffee either…and prefer tea 🙂
