Well! Apparently I’ve been nominated for the/a Versatile Blogger Award. I’m going to take that as a compliment, even though I don’t know if I’m “versatile” as much as I “have a short attention span” and “lack direction and/or purpose”. But anyway, thanks much to my dear friend Sassy Sass for the nomination!

And now for the Rules:

1. Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy. (check!)

2. Include a link to his or her blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it. (check!)

3. Select 15 excellent blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
Let’s see. I’m not sure I can come up with 15, but I’ll do my best.
1. Made By Rachel – Rachel was one of my advisors in college, and I’ll probably always be trying to be as cool and creative as she is.
2. Best4Ever Family – Jennie is a fabulous woman and an inspiring mama to her 4 gorgeous adopted kids. Also, she’s hilarious.
3. Le Petit Oiseau – On crafting, thrifting and mama-ing
3. Thomas Galvin – Vampires, werewolves, weaponry, sarcasm and random crap he finds on the internet
4. Kaleidoscope Cardigans – Funny lady, and my go-to for all things Corgi.
5. Terrible Minds – Author Chuck Wendig shares his twisted, profane, hilarious thoughts with the world.
6. Eggton – Salty with and a sweet tooth. Also, a dog named Thunder. Who is awesome.
7. Brooklyn Limestone – A Brooklyn limestone in progress.
8. Already Pretty – Helping you recognize your own beauty, one post at a time
9. A Practical Wedding – I found this blog while I was planning my wedding, and I stick around for the amazing life (NOT just wedding) advice and incredible community of awesome, supportive women (and sometimes even men!).
10. Privilege – Lisa is the cool, wise, savvy aunt everyone should have. And the kind of cool, wise, savvy aunt I aspire to be.
11. Young House Love – 1 young family + 1 old house = love. My bathroom sink was inspired by these guys.
12. Twillypop – She makes jewelry, homeschools 3 kids, cooks incredible food, and manages to be gorgeous all the time. If I didn’t like her so much, I’d probably hate her.
13. Smitten Kitchen – Sometimes I just spend hours clicking the Surprise Me! button and hoarding the recipes I find.
14. The Bloggess – She’s completely nuts, in the best kind of way.
15. Design Sponge – All things DIY, creative and lovely.

4. Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award
Some of these bloggers are way too famous to probably care that I’m giving them an award, but they can just suck it. I’m kidding, you’re all awesome.

5. Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
Here we go, I’m going to try to think of 7 things that Sassy Sass doesn’t already know about me. I’m an oversharer, so this is going to be a challenge.

  • The ONLY thing under my wedding gown on my wedding day was a pair of comfy gray undies, chosen because they stay put and don’t give me a wedgie.
  • I notice, and disapprove, when wine is served in the wrong kind of glass.
  • Switzerland’s landscape is so gorgeous it literally makes me cry in amazement.
  • I’m afraid of heights, the Adirondack mountains, clowns, cankles and big fuckoff spiders.
  • I know all the words to Pretty Fly For A White Guy by The Offspring.
  •  I hate kitten heels. I don’t resent other people wearing them, but they look stupid on me.
  • I’m not a fan of chick flicks, but my favorite movie of all time is You’ve Got Mail.

So there’s that! Go forth and spread the love 🙂
