Versatile Blogger Award

14 May

I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Melissa at Freeing Imperfections! Yay! Thank you!! Can you believe it was two months ago today I started this blog?


The details are pretty simple: 

1. Add The Versatile Blogger award photo on a blog post. Done

2. Thank the person who presented you with the award and link back to him or her in your post. Done

3. Share seven things about yourself. Getting to it!

4. Pass the award along to 15 other bloggers. Contact the chosen bloggers to let them know about the award. I don’t know why I have such a hard time with this- it is too hard to narrow it down!


  • I sometimes think I will quit my job and become an elementary school teacher. Unfortunately, I have to pay my bills in the meantime. 
  • My mom and dad call me Gertrude when I am being bratty or grumpy. I don’t know how this started!
  • My group of best friends from home and I call ourselves the “goats.” This is a whole other post in itself. You know I love my inside jokes!
  • I used to be afraid of the movie ET. I was scared he would stretch his neck up and get me on the top bunk of my bunk bed.
  • I sigh in my sleep. Apparently it can be a little awkward.
  • I still sleep with the teddy bear my dad gave me in the hospital when I was born. So mature.
  • I never had braces but always wanted them. I was so jealous of kids who got to change the color of their bands depending on the season.

Handing it over to:

Okay, I started getting frustrated because I realized the list was getting to the 15 blog limit and I still had more I wanted to include, so I gave up and updated my Let’s Be Friends page instead. If you’re not listed it doesn’t mean I didn’t want you to be on here. It just means I got annoyed and threw up my hands with the whole thing…so just remind me please!

Bottom line, please take the award and run with it.

And please go “like” my new Facebook page! It would make me SO VERY happy!

    I am flattered that my blog is up on your Let’s Be Friends list. Yours is also on my Blogs I Read page, btw.
    Can’t wait to read about the story behind goats.

    I have always wanted to win this award but just taking it and running with it seems like cheating. lol

    How do you get nominated for these awards? I’ve seen the Leibster award and the Versatile Blogger award and wondered how to get nominated.

    Congrats on receiving another award! And thanks for including my name on your Let’s Be Friend’s List 🙂

    Your reference to E.T. caught my attention. That movie terrified me when I was a child. I don’t remember what it was but I know I never finished the movie 😀

    I still have the bear that was the first thing given to my parents when the found out about me. 🙂 My nickname by my family is Lorenzo. I have no idea how that started either…

    Congrats on another award, Kate. And I’m honored to be on your Let’s Be Friends page – that’s a great idea (may have to borrow it). I always wanted braces until I had them. I also wanted crutches – fortunately I haven’t needed them, and now I’d like to keep it that way!

    Haha I still sleep with a cat toy I have had since child birth to. There is no such thing as being to old for that! Following you on bloglovin. Found your blog through the blog hop thingy 🙂
    Folow me back @

    Congratulations on the award! You deserve it! I get overwhelmed with them too – it’s SO hard to name bloggers to pass it on to. Oh and I’d love to be on your let’s be friends page 🙂 (already like your FB page). And if you ever act grumpy, can I pull the Gertrude card? That’s funny!

    I cried at ET. On the floor of the theater. I told my mother that only horribly mean mothers took their daughter to a movie where the alien dies. I completely missed the part where he wasn’t dead. Because I was too busy crying like a moron. On the nasty floor of the theater. Oy Vey.

    Congrats! I love your blog! I can’t believe you wanted braces! I would have given you mine, gladly. However you probably wouldn’t have wanted my fangs…haha
