Versatile Blogger Award--WHOOOOT!!!

I headed back to work today (YAY!) and after finishing my grades I checked my email.  Imagine my surprise and excitement when I realized that I was awarded my SECOND blogging award!  I can't imagine this ever getting tiresome because I was WHOOT, WHOOT, WHOOT THRILLED (yep, THREE whoots)!  So a HUGE THANK YOU to Lauren from Life in Middle School for the recognition AND Sara S. from Smiling in Second Grade.  You rock my socks!

Okaaaay, so the rules of the game are as follows:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you with a link back to them. Thank you again, Lauren and Sara S! Head on over and check out their blogs by clicking on their links above! 
  2. Tell 7 things about yourself. 
  3. Pass this on to 15 newly discovered blogs and let them know they've received an award!   

7 Things About Me:
  1. I am a small town Michigan girl at heart (GO BLUE) and LOVE my home state and town. All except for that cold, white stuff that they get during their winters. 
  2. I have lived in Florida for about 18 years and LOVE the winters here ;). 
  3. I put myself through college by working at Longhorn Steakhouse as a waitress and then bartender and graduated debt free because I paid as I went. It was HARD WORK and there was little rest involved because I was also supporting myself very far away from home, but it was worth. Every. Minute! I knew that if I took out loans while going to school to be a teacher, I'd be working to pay off said loans my whole career (due to the pay cut I'd take when I went into teaching full time). 
  4. I'm "one of THOSE moms" who thinks that her children are Golden. 
  5. Number 4 is a 1/2 truth because my children (three of them) ARE Golden. Retrievers, that is. ;) They have brought my life so much joy and filled many empty moments while my husband was deployed the past three years. 
  6. I drive a 2003 Hyundai (another decision made because I was just graduating and wanted a car with low payments and a looooong warranty). 
  7. My other car is a '57 Chevy. ♥ 

15 New Blogs I'm Sharing This With

*I'm coming back to edit this one because it took me soooo long to get the post finished in the first place. I am off to find my recipients NOW!
