Versatile Blogger Award, Take 2!

Gotta love this...

I'm trying really hard not to get a big head or huge ego, but its getting kind of difficult.  Thanks to Katie S. @ My New Heartbeat, I now have another Versatile Blogger Award to add to my resume...

You know- if I had a resume.  I'm PRETTY sure my husband doesn't require one from me.  If he did, though- this would be on it!

So, per usual, I'm supposed to share 7 things about me and then nominate some other well deserved bloggers.  I'm feeling kind of photo happy today, though, so here are 7 things about me in picture form.

A tidbit here, a tidbit there....
1.I'm actually REALLY good at keeping up on my boys' baby books.  I've even gone through Camo's baby book recently to see if I had pictures for everything.  You could call it obsessive, but...  No, you'd be right.  Its obsessive.

2.So far today I've had over a pot of coffee.  Yes, its a lot.  No, I don't think its too much- there's another pot brewing right now.  THAT might be too much, but I believe its the quality, not the quantity, that matters.  I'm searching for that cup of coffee that will complete me.  So far, none of them have spoken to me.

However, if any of them DO start talking to me, you'll know coffee is probably no longer the only thing in my cup.

3.I'm am exceptional at killing things.  Its a wonder why I'm trusted to grow human beings.  This plant was alive and well less than a week ago.  Somewhere along the way, it decide to off itself.  I'm loath to throw it away though- as though tossing it out will be a testament to my inability to do something as simple as water a plant.  If I keep it, its saying there's still hope... or it says that I'm a little on the loony side.  Yeah, that too.

4.I've decided to foray into bread making.  Before you 'Ooo' and 'Ahh', just understand that I'm taking the less adventurous road and using a bread maker.  I still deserve applause, though, now that I think about it.  After all, I can kill a decorative shrub (see #3)- there are even more ways to ruin a loaf of bread- as you can see, its a little lopsided.

5.In addition to bread making, I thought it would be fun- and make for entertaining blog posts, at the very least- to make my own baby food.  Yesterday was my first time, and after some blood, sweat and tears (don't worry, none of that went into the food), I made rice cereal.  I imagine those that have scaled Mt. Everest have felt a similar pride.

6.After making that rice cereal, I came to find out that my wonderful, "choosy" (its a nicer word than "picky") boy wasn't thrilled with it.  I tasted it- I can't blame him in the least.  Tonight I decided to let him try mashed potatoes with gravy.  Can anyone say 'Home Run'?  His pediatrician is going to LOVE me at the next visit.

7.Today my "baby" officially said good bye to elementary school.  Beginning in August, I will have a Jr. Higher and a Kindergartener.  Oh, and a baby.  I can practically FEEL my hair turning gray.

And now- because I listened in Kindergarten and learned how to share- here are some fabulous blogs you should check out:

...Shar's Daily Ramblings♥
A Muddled Mother
Memoirs of a Mormon Mommy
Rise Above Your Limits
Whimsy and Whirl by Tenetia

I hope you'll check them out- they're great blogs and great people.

Aaaaaaaaannnnnnnd... if I get ANOTHER award, I'll be more than happy to share more AMAZING blogs with you!

Thanks again, Katie!
