Versatile Blogger Award!

A HUGE thank you to Laurie Dominguez at Laurie's Cravings for nominating me for this award! What a surprise and honor! Laurie is awesome at making yummy recipes healthier and still yummy - something I'm definitely still working on! You should definitely see what she can do.

And another gigantic thank you is required: I was also nominated by Emma at Food, Fork, Good, who has a seriously hysterical blog that I love to check in on! You should definitely stop by there as well.

 The rules for this award are....
  1. Thank the Blogger who nominated you.
  2. Include a link to their site.
  3. Include the award image to your post.
  4. Include the award image on your blog.
  5. Give 7 random facts about yourself.
  6. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.
  7. When nominating other bloggers, include links to their sites.
  8. Let those bloggers know they have been nominated.
Here are my seven random facts about me:
  1. How 'bout this: I'm having a seriously hard time coming up with seven random facts.  This was probably my most hated part of the start of the school year each year.
  2. I hate chocolate.  Stud-muffin is continually complaining that I'm not making enough chocolate.  Why would I make something I don't want to eat?
  3. I loooooove salt.  And diet coke.  And probably a million other things that I should really do without.
  4. I'm a bonafied city-girl scrambling through country life.  I have yet to butcher one of our chickens myself, but at one point I didn't think I'd even be ok with letting them be butchered at all.  I guess people can change.
  5. In a previous life, not so very long ago, I was a kindergarten teacher.  I love teaching and plan to return shortly :)
  6. I have a serious fear of raw meat, especially if it has bones in it.  I'm planning to get over it.
  7.  We are currently watching Mickey Mouse. We watch too much TV. No joke.
