award doings #1

March 23, 2013 at 11:48 pm 10 comments

Good Saturday afternoon.  I have some unfinished business to attend to – some award doings.  So without further adieu (I love how that word sounds), I would like to attend to THE doings.

First doing is the Versatile Blogger Award.  I was nominated by a very sweet young lady whose really cool blog is Confection Infection – It’s Cheaper to Keep Her♥.  The link is   Please check her out.  She is quite the hip and happenin’ chick, with nails to die for –

I have gathered the criteria below directly from The Versatile Blogger Award site which is –

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.

Before I type up the  nominations, I will reveal a few things about myself –

1.  I have a green thumb.  More indoors than out, due to allergies, which leads me to ….

2.  I am allergic to lots of stuff – mold, grass, pollen – I will not bore you with the whole list.  Let me just say that if some of my work begins to read as if it is drug induced – Spring is coming and I live on antihistamines and decongestants.

3.  I have two titanium plates and 48 titanium screws in my left arm – compliments of a bike crash while training for Ironman Wisconsin in July of 2006.  I scared the bejeezus out of my boys, but they think my metal is cool.  Apparently “mom packs serious metal”!

4.  I have three bikes – one Trek hybrid, one Trek aluminum road bike and an Aegus all-carbon fiber kick ass tri bike.

5.  I have met some incredible people – Margot Fonteyn, Mikhail Baryshnikov,  Johnny Bench, Bob Hope, Ryan Reynolds – yes, I saw his six-pack in person.  Wowzers!  Amazing!

6.  I have been fortunate to attend the World Ironman Championships in Kona, Hawaii two times.  Let me just say one word – Inspiring!

7.  If I get the chance to live another life after this one, I want to come back as a swan.  Yes, I love swans – Swan Lake – fave ballet, fave music.  The Dying Swan, Anna Pavlova,…………

Now for the nominees:

  1. Ordinary Life –
  2. Giant Eraser –
  3. My Happy Place –
  4. To the Moon and Back –
  5. Don’t walk it off, write it off… –
  6. Land of Quo –
  7. Free Little Words –
  8. Blog It or Lose It! –
  9. Pieces – Exposing Emotions –
  10. Breedoll’s –
  11. Almost Annika –
  12. owowruserious –
  13. YouOnlyLiveOnce –
  14. The Sanctuary of My Heart –
  15. Live Like A Butterfly –

All 15 blogs above are wonderful sites to visit and to read.  There is much to see and learn – a true cornucopia of writing.  I would like to thank Confection Infection – It’s Cheaper to Keep Her♥.  I am honored to have been given this award and to pass on the love to my fellow blogophiles.
