Versatile Blogger Award

I recently received a Versatile Blogger Award.

I was flattered and somewhat surprised seeing as how I only write about more or less two different topics on this blog, as opposed to my regular blog (which is full of random thoughts consists of a smorgasboard of varying topics.)

The official "rules" of accepting this award are as follows:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.

Thank you William and Alicia- What a fun surprise!  Incidentally, William and Alicia are hoping to adopt, so take a look at their adoption blog, grab their button, and help spread the word.

2. Tell 7 things about yourself.

1. I served a mission for my church in three Southwestern States: Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.

2. Although I am a native Utahn I've only been skiing once (and I hated it).

3.  I am a great aunt- literally.  I have one grandniece and two grandnephews [and over 40 nieces and nephews].

4.  My favorite job was working in a library. While I worked there I often had dreams of alphabetizing and sorting books. Even now I have to resist the urge to Dewey Decimalize or alphabetize all of the books in my home.

5. I am not afraid to leave the house without wearing make-up.

6.  If I were rich I would hire a personal chef because I hate deciding what to make for dinner every night.

7.  I would love to go back to school and get a Master's Degree in Social Work or Marriage and Family Therapy.

3. Pay it forward and award the Versatile Blogger to 15 recently discovered new bloggers.

Fifteen?  So many blogs-so little time!  I'm going to tweak the rules on this one (for the sake of time) and I am just going to bestow the honor on five blogs.  After all, I did pay it forward when I received the Sunshine Award.

ver·sa·tile   adj.
1. Capable of doing many things competently.
2. Having varied uses or serving many functions:

And the award goes to (drumroll) . . . 
Perhaps I'll do a future post on why I chose these blogs, but for now this will suffice.
Congratulations, Ladies!

#1- Thanks.
#2- It's private (I can only have up to 100 readers). I'll send you an invitation.

Thanks for the award...I'll post about it at my blog, and link back to you. Have a great day!

Fact #4 made my day. The fact that you are a library nerd like I am gives you extra awesome points :)

Also, even though you might not think you're very versatile, I think your blog is very much award-worthy!
