Versatile Blogger Award

Pretty sure the last award I received was a perfect attendance ribbon in high school. Don't get me wrong, that was totally thrilling...but not quite as much as making Shannon's list on her great blog, Imperfectly Inspired.

Now I get to do three things:
1. Thank the person who gave me this award.
2. Tell you 7 things about myself.
3. Pass it on to 15 other people and let them know they've been awarded.
So, Miss Shannon, thank you! It is a huge honor to be mentioned alongside such amazing blogs. This is way better than getting a perfect attendance ribbon. The rest of you must go check out Imperfectly Inspired. You're sure to find fabulous craft, food, and just-plain-life inspiration.

Telling 7 things about myself isn't the easiest thing to do, and I tend to get really random when doing things like this, but I'll give it a try:


1. I received this award about, oh, a month or so ago...which I guess makes me a bit of a procrastinator.

2. Zach and I are both from little towns in West Texas, 8 miles apart. We never knew each other growing up; proof that it's all in God's timing.
3. I love Christmas. Big time. Started listening to my Bing Crosby Christmas album in August.

4. Between my husband and me, we have had seven major knee injuries. He's had 4 surgeries on the same knee! :(
5. I eat candy every day. I also get cavities every few months.

6. My Momma is the best Momma.

7. The coolest job I ever had was working in Internal Ticketing for the Sundance Film Festival.

And the fun part...I now get to name 15 wonderful blogs for you to go visit!
