The Versatile Blogger Award
I am honored to accept the Versatile Blogger award from Samantha Bacchus!
And I was supposed to have gotten this posted yesterday. My apologies to Sam and a big Thank you for nominating me for this wonderful award.
And now for the rules of the Versatile Blogger Award:
– Thank the person who nominated you, (as I have above).
– Include a link to their blog – click on Smantha’s name (up there ) to follow the link to her fantastic blog,
Samantha’s Blog: Living The Write Dream
– Nominate 15 bloggers. – I’ll do this at the end.
– Tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
This is the hard part! I am a simple, uncomplicated type of person, who tends to share all kinds of things about myself all the time and yet I keep my thoughts and opinions to myself (most of the time 🙂 ) so as not to offend anyone. But I’ll try to come up with a few that you don’t know.
I’m allergic to metal. Not sure if I was prior to having my ears pierced when I was 18, but that’s when I first became aware of it.
Just carrying change (coins) in my hand or pocket will cause a reaction. Within seconds they start to feel warm and after a few minutes they will leave a red mark that is similar to a moderate sunburn that can last for days. All jewelry has to be either sterling silver or nickel free. One thing that I learned when I had a severe reaction 15 years ago was that many people allergic to metal are also allergic to spandex. Yes, I am one of the many. Do you know how hard it is to find clothes that don’t have spandex in them? Try reading the labels sometime. Bras, underwear, stretch jeans, even socks can have spandex.
I’m afraid of birds and all feathered creatures! Ducks, geese, and chickens are the worst. Maybe it’s because as a child, my family had a pet chicken who hated me and would chase me every time I went outside and would peck at my legs. Brrr…Gives me the chills just thinking about it. 🙂
I cut and color my own hair. And I have only had my hair cut and colored by a professional stylist 6 times in my entire life.
I’ve been thinking about going gray naturally. What with all the brands and shades of hair color available today, the little old gray haired lady has become a rarity. Heck, even my step-mom who just turned 91 last week still has her hair colored on a regular basis. But I am scared. What if I don’t like it? What if it makes me look…OLD? Guys seem to go gray more naturally than women do and they don’t seem to mind. Is it a society thing? Or are women just more vain?
I have three sons and my middle son is truly a middle son. My oldest was born on a Wednesday, my middle son was born on a Thursday, and my youngest was born on a Friday, but wait there’s more. My oldest weighed the most, but was the shortest. My middle son fell right into the middle because my youngest son weighed the least and was the longest of the three.
I don’t like wearing dresses. Sorry, but they make me feel self-conscious and uncomfortable. I believe that if you are comfortable with what you are wearing (I prefer jeans myself) you exude self-confidence and self-confidence is way more sexy than a self-conscious, uncomfortable woman in a short dress anytime!
At 5’5″ and a whopping 130 pounds, I’m the biggest in my family. And I have always felt like an Amazon compared to my mom who topped out at 5’2″, both of my sisters at 5’3″, and my brother at 5’4″. I even had an uncle who was a jockey before he was killed in the Korean war. From what I’ve heard he was pretty good, but I never got to meet him. He died seven years before I was born.
And this is hard too! I follow so many wonderful blogs that it’s hard to narrow the list down to 15, but here goes.
Well, that’s my nominees. I understand that sometimes we are so caught up in our day to day lives that we might not be able to accept the award and that’s fine, I understand completely. When I received an award about a year ago one of my nominees emailed me and asked if I would give the award to a very nice lady whose blog had never received an award. So if you can’t accept please consider paying it forward and nominate a blog of your choice. Just leave their link in the comments section and let them know you have nominated them. Hope you are all having a wonderful week!
Till next time; Hugs!
