Who me? The Versatile Blogger?

Last night as I was about to turn in for the night, I got a tweet from one of my favorite bloggers, Andrea. She blogs over at I Run for Donuts. When I came across Andrea's blog, it was like a match made in heaven. I mean I love donuts and I love to run. Perfect!

Big thanks to Andrea and her tweet because she nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. All I kept thinking was "who me?" Before her tweet, I had never even heard of it. This sweet gesture put an instant smile on my face. It was nice to know that someone out there actually reads my blog and it was an honor to be listed among some of Andrea's favorites. 
The rules for The Versatile Blogger award are:
1. Add The Versatile Blogger award photo on a blog post
2. Thank the person (or animal) who presented you with the award and link back to him or her in your post
3. Share seven things about yourself
4. Pass the award along to 15 favorite bloggers. Contact the chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.

So, check to #1 and 2. Here goes nothing for #3. Seven things about myself...hmm. This is a hard one because I have so much to share about myself and to narrow it down to only seven is kind of hard.

1. I love to color. Yes color, as in coloring books. And I stay inside the lines.
2. I am a Florida native. Born and raised. 
3. I have a birthmark on my neck that I secretly wish I could get rid of.
4. I have a tattoo on the back of my neck. It's the symbol for "Grace" in Chinese.
5. I constantly ask my husband if I have food in my teeth. It's a bad habit, but I just can't help it.
6. I enjoy paddle boarding and being out on the water. 
7. I am a flip flop girl. 99% of the time you will find me wearing flip flops (unless of course I'm running).

So now it's my turn. I get to nominate 15 of my favorite blogs for this award. Remember the rules above. Here are my favs:


  1. I still love to color too -- that's all I did while snowed in during our blizzard in February!

  2. Thanks for nominating me! The pressure is on to get mine done now ;) This is a fabulous idea - Iove it.
    Jen- Travel Girl on the run

    1. So glad you liked the idea. Your post turned out great!

  3. Thanks for sharing some of your favorite blogs! I always like getting suggestions from other bloggers.
    As a Kindergarten teacher I can say that I love to color too...and that I get lots of practice :)

    1. I bet you know all about coloring Karen. Kindergarten is such a great year for that. I'd love to go back...LOL

  4. Thank you so much for nominating me Ashley!! Looking forward to exploring your blog too!

  5. Ahh! Someone else who colors! I LOVE COLORING! It's such a great stress-reliever!

    1. I totally agree about it being a stress reliever. Only one who enjoys coloring would understand.
