The Blog Love Continues...

Well, The Versatile Blogger award has come back again this week! I am so humbled by the support I have received since I began my blogging journey! This week, the award came from two great ladies that I need to thank for even thinking of me!!

First, JoAnn, over at Jo's This and That, stopped by to drop off the award. I must admit, I was truly honored because I have admired JoAnn's blog, since I first started this journey. She creates some of the most beautiful tablescapes, vignettes, mantels....gosh, everything!! If you haven't had the pleasure of visiting JoAnn, you're truly missing out!!
Then, I got a surprise email from Brooke at Cupcakes and Cucumbers! Brooke has one of the cutest blogs! She is definitely not a one-dimensional girl! She is a professional photographer, but gives great insight on recipes, travel, and markets & festivals. Please stop by and show her blog some love! 

Now, the rules state that I should thank the person who sent it to me; and to tell you 7 things about myself, that you may not know. I feel like I've told you pretty much everything, this is tough! LOL!! Ok, let's see...

1) I am an only child- And I didn't grow up to be a spoiled brat!

2) I have had the same best friend for over 25 years...Love ya, Donna!!

3) I play the piano. I used to be the Sunday School musician at my childhood church!

4) I love to watch reruns...drives my kids crazy!!

5) I secretly love some shows on the Disney Channel...shhh, don't tell my girls!!  

6) When I'm feeling stressed, I like to clean house! It's therapeutic!

7) I coached my girls' cheer squad in pee wee football. We won first place at competition, with a cheer and mini-pyramid, from my high school days! LOL!!

Now, the second part of this award states that I should pass it on to 15 newly discovered blogs. However, many of the ones that I am thinking of have either already passed it on; or they have just been awarded!  The following blogs are some that I recently discovered; and feel that they are truly inspiring and full of great ideas. Please go by and visit them, if you haven't already!

I also want to give a special thank you to Diane Cayton-Hakey at The Blue Ridge Gal!  Diane is responsible for my header and my new button...she truly is an ANGEL, especially for newbies like me!!!  Thanks, Diane!!!  I so appreciate you!!!!

Thanks for stopping by today; and enjoy your weekend!
