The Versatile Blogger Award

Mikey, at, awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award. How cool is that! Thanks, Mikey! I’m sure my readers would enjoy a visit to your fun blog, where they’ll find so many fantastic products and ideas for mommies!
OK, I’m going to try to get this right….
This award is to recognize and appreciate fellow bloggers and let your readers
 know about some new blogs they might not have visited.

Now it's time to pass it on.
  Here's how:

*Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.

*Share seven things about yourself.

*Award 15 bloggers you recently discovered.

*Contact these bloggers and let them know they have received this award.

Here are seven things about myself:

I was born in Yorkshire, England. My first accent was American due to my mom talking to me a lot. When I hit school, my next accent was fake Yorkshire, because nobody could understand me. When we moved to California, my new accent was fake American because I’d forgotten genuine American and nobody could understand my fake Yorkshire. Now I just write. ; )

I went parachuting when I was 17, just so I could tell people I did it. Now I'm telling you. Silly me!

 I had five root canals before I finally decided a bite guard might be worth the money.

 I minored in classical guitar in college, but now I never play. I wish I’d invested all those hours in piano. You don’t have to carry a piano around with you.

I went to boarding school for high school.

I had a stubborn, grey pony named Merrylegs in England and a beautiful Arab/saddlebred cross in California. One of my dreams is to get my daughter a pony.

I was very near the faultline during the 6.9 Loma Prieta earthquake. Scary!

And now, the moment you’ve been waiting for… here are the blogs that I’m sending the award to:

“Small Kucing” at In Malaysia! Cool!

Rosann at Positive and deep!

Kara at You will love her poetry!

Kirsten at Brave and patriotic lady.

MaggieRaye at Connections between faith and nature.

Christin at Check out her gorgeous crafts!

Ronae at Healing words.

Sassy at Beautiful – you will cry!

Sam at  Health questions answered!

Renae at Kids’ book reviews!

Karen at Fun and lively site!
