The Versatile Blogger Award and The TMI Award

I’ve been nominated again for the Versatile Blogger Award by hurtorheal. I hope you will go check out her blog. And I was awarded the TMI award by Gabriela. I hope you will check out her blog too.

I am always so touched when someone nominates me for an award for I feel that there is no higher honor than to have someone who is a writing peer think my blog is worthy of an award. And to get two in one day is awesome. Thank you so much.

I love that this award  is for those blogs that discuss everything in detail and do it well. These bloggers aren’t afraid to discuss even the most awkward, embarrassing, and intimate experiences with honesty, humour, and little to no filter. Now that is me. I go where no man has been before. 🙂 And I am not afraid to talk about the hard subjects with total honesty. So, this is cool. 🙂

Ok 7 things about me you don’t know. Hmmm this is getting harder for you all know me pretty well by now. goes. 1. My son and I have this joke when we try a new recipe that does not work. We call it the “garbage Can Trophy”. 2. I can’t drink just plain water. Half my throat is numb and I choke on it so I must have at least lemon in water. 3. I don’t like the total dark. I tell everyone I leave night lights on for Jack. 🙂 4. I once shaved off my eyebrow when I was little. It was right at Halloween so who needed a costume. 5. I used to believe elves lived in the base of trees and would leave cookies for them. 6. I loved Nancy Drew and the Bobbsy Twins when I was little. 7. I do my best typing flat on my back and tummy typing.

And for the TMI Award…hmmm one of my most embarrassing moments. Well, it was like this. I was with my siblings and my mother in a fancy department store. We had just walked in and I was leaning over looking at some jewelry on a table. It had a mannequin leaning against the table…or so I thought. Well, said mannequin suddenly started to walk off. I, thinking I had knocked the mannequin over, lunged and grabbed him around the waist. You can imagine my embarrassment when I discovered that this mannequin was a real person. When I realized this, I released my hold and looked up at him and said “Oh, I am so sorry…I thought you were a dummy.” And when I looked around, my mother and siblings had all left me there.

Now for my nominees:

And for the TMI Award…because I think it is important and not frivolous, I am awarding this to one person in particular that I think is willing to talk about all topics no matter what they are…how embarassing they might be… in an open and honest way…even the controversial. And that person is:
