The Versatile Blogger Award - Thanks, Becca!

Becca at A Humble Bumble awarded me with the Versatile Blogger Award. I am so thankful, surprised, honored, humbled and other positive adjectives. Seriously! I can't get over it - - - so excited!

Here are the rules:
  1. Thank the person that gave you the award in a blog post & link back to their blog
  2. Pass the award on to 15 bloggers you follow
  3. Include 7 random things about yourself in your post
  4. Notify your nominees by leaving a comment on their blog
7 randoms of me:
  1. I went through two, count 'em TWO doses of Accutane acne treatment. Let me tell ya, not only is it brutal, but props to my husband because he was there for both. I. Was. MOODY! 
  2. I climbed a fence my first year of teaching to retrieve a student. That first year was a toughy but I learned a lot and stuck it out. Miss those babies that are now in middle school
  3. My favorite colors in order are Pink, Purple and Yellow. When I was 12, I was convinced black was my favorite color and I was going to have a black wedding. Really?!
  4. I asked Jesus to come live in my heart when I was 11 years old. I remember I was at a southern gospel concert of The Bishops. Best decision ever. (Although, this music is not my style these days...)
  5. Anyone who says "Plants are easy" can kiss my big toe. I've killed at least 1 and a half bamboo plants, a cactus, and multiple other plants. Who the heck kills a cactus?!?! The only successful plants for me are air plants. 
  6. I got to see Sir Paul McCartney live. Jealous? You should be. Want proof? Here ya go! Shot with my old, constant battery-dying, pink camera. I took my then boyfriend (who is now my husband.) Gotta love dream fulfilling!
  7. I prayed for my own "Guy who wears Chuck Taylors" back before I met Joe. Guess what I'm blessed with? Joe exclusively wears Chuck Taylors and has since he was 18. Now, try to tell me our Heavenly Father doesn't listen to our prayers. ;o)
    (His purple and my pink Converse)
Here are my nominations! In no particular order - **drum roll please**
Ladies, please know, there is no obligation to participate, but take with you the warm fuzzy in your heart that you were nominated. :o) If you DO decide to participate... let me know! I'd love to read your 7 randoms.

Very cool! Congratulations.

Your very first fact struck a chord with me: I also did two rounds of accutane! That stuff is a butt kicker but I swear, it changed my life. I did my first round at 14 and my second at 17 (genetic cystic acne sucks). If it wasn't for accutane though, I'm certain my teen years would have been horrible, I know my face would have been badly scarred, and my confidence would not be what it is today. Thanks for sharing! I'm glad I'm not the only one.

Erica said...

Whoooohooooo!!! Congrats on your award and thanks for the nomination! I'm honored. :)

I just did a post on some Liebster awards, so I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to answer your questions, but I'll be sure let you know when I do.

Hope you've had a great weekend! It's been rainy here so me and my puppies spent a lot of time napping on the couch. :)

Oh man, I'm so with you on the whole "killing plants is easy" thing! I didn't even know you COULD kill a cactus until my little guy died! Oh well, I'll keep trying haha
