Versatile Blogger

I am so grateful to be nominated for my second blog award!  Thank you Erin from Crafty Biggers for nominating me!  It is an honor knowing there are people out there that actually enjoy a bit of what I write.  Please take the time to visit Erin's blog page Crafty Biggers.  She has some adorable crafts posted!

Here are the requirements for the award...

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you for the award
2. Include a link to their blog in you post, as well as the award image
3. Give 7 random facts about yourself
4. Nominate 5 other deserving bloggers for the award
5. Include links to the nominated bloggers' sites
6. Let the other bloggers know that they have been nominated for the award

Hmmmm..... 7 random facts about myself:

1.  My favorite vegetable is white cabbage. . . followed by raw spinach.
2. My favorite television show is currently Game of Thrones on HBO.  Nerdy much?  Yes!!!  It is so well-written, well-acted and unique.  Can't wait for the new season later in the year.  If you know of where I can find a "Winter is Coming" tank top tell me now!  Ha!!!
3.  I am a reformed beauty junkie (shhhhh.... but still adore all beauty products). 
4.  I rode an elephant in Thailand.  Amazing experience until it decided to reach for leaves over the side of a cliff.  There are different security standards in Thailand.
5.  I worked on Korean television for a year and was featured on billboards!  LOL!
6.  My heart is far too tender, and I cry easily.
7.  I have three strong-willed, precocious children with tempers, Brenden, Brielle and Bridget.   What does that say about me?  Hmmmmm....

In no particular order here are five blogs I would like to nominate (plus 2 more because I'm a rebel:
