I also won this Award from Stephanie @ A Day In The Life, Of A Grad Student's Wife

Thank you so much Steph! I love reading Stephanie's posts. She's funny, VERY creative (LOVE her signs in her Etsy Shop!). Please stop over and visit Stephanie and click on her sidebar link to her Etsy as well. I'm definitely gonna be dresssing up my new cubicle with her craftiness!

The "rules" of this award are:

1 - thank the person (Check!)
2 - Share 7 things about yourself
3 - Nominate 15 newly discovered blogs
4 - Let the award winners know!

7 Things About Me:
I love a variety of music... rock, country, contemporary christian, even some 'oldies'
I love to play World of Warcraft. This shocks a lot of people. Evidently I don't "look the type."
Some newer blog followers probably don't know I'm also a 40-something college student too.
I love my reality shows: Bachelor/ette, HGTV and Food Network's "new stars", yet I hate soaps. GIve me REAL drama! LOL
I am extremely close to my 19 year old son and he comes to me easily with girl problems. :)
I try to live the Golden Rule with people, whether I agree with their beliefs or not.
I am a neat freak about my desk/work area at the office. I clean up and straighten before I leave each day and have heard on occasion - I thought you didn't work here anymore. Ha!

And now for the next part, The Versatile Blog Award nominees.
(I'm SO bad at following the rules completely) There aren't 15 and one isn't a NEW follower but I really want her to have the award, so here's my list:

Please visit them and say hi!


  1. Aww ty Diana. I have a wide variety of musical tastes too which drives my kids btty that they never know what I will and won't like. Unless it is just OUT there, screaming crud or a lot of cuss words none of which Ilike lol.

  2. Thanks so much Diana! This looks like a fun thing to do. You're a sweetheart :)

  3. Oh Diana, thank you! I am a little embarrassed. I believe at one point, early on in my blogging days, I was following your blog. But it wasn't until I received this award and found you again that I realized nothing from you was coming through my reader. I am now following through Google Friends! And thank you for the tip on Allied Moms. I've linked up there as well!

  4. Congratulations on your awards! That's so AWESOME! Will go check out the other bloggers and visit them.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and entering the giveaway! Have a blessed day! =)
