Awww, Thanks!

I'm so happy!  Not to mention flattered!
Today I received this Versatile Blogger award from Amanda over at The Little Yellow House Blog!
I love her photos, and her awesome posts about renovating their first home--the little yellow house!
Her blog is wonderful!

Rules to Accept the Award:
1.  Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award.
2.  Answer 10 Questions.
3.  Pass it along to 7 blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy.
4.  Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award.

The 10 Questions!
1)  Why did you create this blog? 
Originally, this blog was a place for me to let my thoughts ramble over whatever happened to catch my fancy that day.  More recently, it has become a place to share recipes, ideas, and the happenings in my life, as well as a way for me to express and connect myself to the outside world as I come to terms with being on disability.
2)  What kinds of blogs do you follow? 
All kinds!  I follow cooking blogs, mommy blogs, job blogs, life blogs, and hodge-podge blogs like my own!
I love reading what people write and seeing their life perspectives. 
 3)   Favorite make-up brand 
The funny thing is, until immediately before our wedding, I would have said "Uhhh, I dunno!"
Now, however, I love my BeautiControl makeup and skin care stuff!  It's the best!
4)  Favorite clothing brand? 
I'm really not all that particular...I'll go with favorite clothing STORES instead!
I love Ross, Target, and Old Navy!
5)  Indispensable makeup product? 
I have to have at least my wet-dry powder and my lip gloss.  HAVE TO!!!
6)  Favorite color?
I love green--especially a deep forest green or the color of new leaves.
Blue, however, is a very close second!
7)  Favorite perfume?
I'm ashamed to say I don't have one!  As in, I don't have a perfume, period, let alone a favorite!
I'm probably going to drag the hubby to a store soon to help me pick one out--after all, he's the one who has to smell it!
8)  Favorite film?
Oh wow.  
That's a really hard one!
I'm going to have to go with my top five
:  The Princess Bride, McClintock!, Blazing Saddles, Pride and Prejudice (the BBC version) and the new Star Trek.
I'm really glad the question wasn't favorite book!!! 
9)  What country would you like to visit and why?
Again, that's a tough one!
I'm going to have to go with my top 3 of places I've never been: 
Germany, because it's where my ancestors were from.
Italy, for the history, the culture, and the beaches!
Antigua, for the beaches!
10)  Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or blush on one side of your face?
I would rather forget the mascara, hands down!

And now to pass the award on!
Here are my 7 new blogs--well, new and newer to me anyway!--that I definitely think deserve the Versatile Blogger Award!
And here they are in no particular order!
1.  Fins at One Day at a Time
2.  Alicia at Cherry Gal Blossoming
3.  Megan at Mackey Madness
4.  Manda at My Life in the Making
5.  Lauren at Pineapple Pizza
6.  Lauren at Thought With Lauren
7.  Carol at The Bubble Bath Queen 

The notes will be forthcoming!
I hope that, if y'all go check out these other bloggers, that y'all will enjoy them as much as I have!
Thanks again Amanda!
