The Versatile Blogger Award!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  Lisa over at Criss Cross Applesauce awarded my little ol' blog the the Versatile Blogger Award.  This is an exciting way to begin the New Year!
Now on to the blog award rules... 

1. Thank the person that nominated you with a link back to them. (Thanks Lisa you ROCK!!!) 

2. Tell 7 things about yourself. (see below)

3. Pass this award on to 15 newly discovered blogs and let them know that they’ve received an award!  (This was super difficult since I find so many fabulous ones out there...DAILY!)

    Seven Things About Myself

    1. I will be turning the big FOUR to the OOOH in February.
    2. Oreo cookies and a tall glass of ice cold milk is my favorite dessert. 
    3. I don't grow my nails out of fear of poking small children in the head {which happened my second year teaching}.  Drew blood and left a mark.
    4. My dream car is a Volkswagen Bug! 
    5. Pink is my favorite color.  
    6. I can't cook.  Well, I can, but only 4 reeeeeeeally good dishes.  I try, but it's just not my thing {my poor husband and son}.
    7. Our cat's *official name* name is Sheba.  Although she IS the queen we NEVER call her that.  Ever.  We call her Kitty, Princess, Fluffy, Meanie, Your Highness, Crazy Cat....It all depends on her mood. 
    8. We completely renovated and moved into the house next door to my parents.  Yes, my parents are my neighbors.  And, my mom CAN cook and does almost every night of the week for us.
    I know it's only supposed to be seven things, but one more can't hurt.  Right?
