Another Versatile Blogger Award

My new friend from Kat's Daily Inspiration has awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award.
It is always an honor when someone recognizes your hard work. I am not the best writer, but I write from my heart. 
Now, for 7 things you don't know about me:
  1. I really hate cleaning, but I'm trying to turn it around and look at it as a gift to my family.
  2. I have volunteered at my boy's school for three years now. Having a child with special needs has shown me how much the school is willing to help. Many times, they are simply too short on staff to get everything done. Right now I am tutoring a 4th grader in Reading Comprehension, but I have also helped with Lunch Buddies and helping teachers with bulletin boards...just to name a few things.
  3. I love the beach and I hope one day that I can live there.
  4. I went back to school to get my degree in Early Childhood Education. About the time I was almost finished, I got pregnant with my middle child and quit. Sometimes I think about going back, but for something in special needs.
  5. I am obsessed with reality tv...I love all of it!
  6. Sometimes I would rather be on the computer than have to be around an actual person...weird, huh?
  7. I like all kinds of music...just depends on my mood and what I am doing.
  8. I am really not the playdate kind of mom. Maybe it is just because it has always been difficult for Ethan to have a playdate...thus, making it harder for me to find a mom with a child willing to play with him!
  9. I might be the only person in the world that really doesn't care if I ever get an iPad.
  10. I love sarcastic humor...and I don't mean that sarcastically!
Now I get to pick 7 bloggers to give this award to, just to spread the love.
  1. I recently found Mom-ology and I love the humor and the variety of topics she discusses. Being a mom is never about just one thing, is it?!
  2. Candice at Where Nothing Good Comes Easy is another mom who blogs about being in the trenches of mommyhood.
  3. Amanda at The Lily Pad has 5 kids! Can you imagine?! She even has identical twins! I  cannot even imagine the amount of patience she must have.
  4. Peanut Butter and Whine is a blog that offers reviews, giveaways, and every other thing you can imagine. Plus, she just won MY giveaway! Connie, send me your address!!
  5. Remy, at Cinnamon Bubbles has a great sense of humor and I love reading her posts.
  6. The Second Thought offers beauty reviews, household reviews, giveaways, book reviews, and on and on. Go check it out!
  7. You HAVE to go to Jamerican Spice! She has blog hops, giveaways, reviews, and she is connected to all the best blogging communities!
So go and visit these seven bloggers and tell them that I sent you!

  5. Hi! Visiting from the Newbie Blog Hop. My favorite on the list was, "Sometimes I would rather be on the computer than have to be around an actual person...weird, huh?" I can relate to that!! I'm on the Newbie Blog Hop Facebook page all the time, though. So I guess I'm interacting with people -- but they understand my interest in blogging so I normally prefer them over other people. :)

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one Laura! I just joined the Newbie Blog Hop so I'll go check you out now! :-)
