Versatile Blogger. . .

. . .so now that the initial shock of realizing I have to come up with 7 interesting facts about myself, I’m really quite chuffed – thank you Nicole of homemadebynicole at the risk of sounding a little too much like Sally Field. . .You LIKE meeeee!  I must admit, I think your blog is pretty awesome too!


rules and regulations: 

  • display the award on your blog
  • add a link to your nominator
  • list 7 interesting facts about yourself. . .
  • nominate & inform 15 blogs (I assumed WordPress blogs)

Seven interesting. . .hmm, let’s go with quirky facts, ‘kay?

one:  I can’t go anywhere without my peeps.  In fact, I HAD to get married AND have children just so I would never be peepless.  The ONLY reason, pure fact. . .yup.

two: I believe, without a doubt, that Popcorn should have its own food group.

three: The only reason I keep my Costco membership is so I can continue to buy pistachios by the bushel.

four: When I was little I would write myself letters and post them, just so I would get mail .

five: I can recite the entire Ghostbusters movie, word for word, I can actually do most of Monty Python too, but Ghostbusters is my true favorite.  Best scene?  Going Up. . .’what are you supposed to be, some kind of cosmonaut?’, ‘No we’re exterminators, someone saw a cockroach up on 12,’. . .I’ll save you reading, just click below:


six: I will drink a minimum of 5 cups of tea a day – don’t worry about my caffeine intake – the milk to tea ratio is 1:1

seven: When I’m lost – I always use a British accent when asking for directions 🙂

Now for the fun part, I can’t nominate Nicole as she brought you to me, so I will share some of the other awesome WordPress blogs I truly enjoy reading and I’d like to take a moment to explain why you should check each one out:

Granny Maud’s Girl – not only does Granny Maud’s Girl have a wickedly delicious sense of humour she’s also pretty good with a sewing machine!  Peg bag Tutorial.

Clouds Full of Rain – give Clouds Full of Rain a t-shirt, a man’s dress shirt. . .a rubber tire 🙂 this is one talented momma!
