Randomness: Awards & Campaign

Thanks to Jen from YA Romantics for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger Award!! =D
Sorry it took me so long to pass it on! 

Okay so, here are the rules if you're nominated for the award. In one post:
1. Nominate 15 5 fellow bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.
2. Add an image of the Versatile Blogger Award.
3. Thank the blogger who nominated you  with a link back to their blog.
4. Share 7 completely random facts about yourself.
5. Include this set of rules.
6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.

Seven Random Facts About Myself:
  • I love snow (except when I have to drive in it).
  • I was homeschooled my whole life. Until college of course. 
  • I've held a baby kangaroo
  • I'm afraid of heights
  • I have a giant sweet tooth (I can eat a 8oz bag of sour patch kids in one sitting. Wait that's supposed to be 5 servings?!? HA!)
  • I want to own a pair of converse sneakers in every color.
  • I couldn't do a cartwheel if my life depended on it.

Thanks to Pat from Children's Books Heal for giving me the Kreativ Blogger Award! Thanks Pat!! =D

The rules for this award are to list 10 things about myself and award the blog to six other deserving bloggers.

I'm sure your already bored with my seven facts above but here are ten more:

  • I drive a punch buggy named Herbie. Unique huh?
  • I LOVE MUSIC and have been to over 50 concerts in my life. 
  • I prefer a home cooked meal to fast food.
  • My favorite movie is A Walk To Remember, which I own in both VHS & DVD format just in case ;) 
  • When I was little I wanted to grow up to be an author. 
  • I hate drinking juice. I live on milk, water, and soda.
  • I'm terrified of public speaking.
  • I love the cartoon Phineas & Ferb!!! (I may or may not admit to owning four shirts with their picture on it that I had to buy in the boys section of Walmart...)
  • I like to lounge around the house and wear my happy feet slippers (pictured below)
  • I can't possibly think of another fact about myself!

Now for the nominations!

  6. Hi there! Nice to meet you:) I followed you over from my blog and joined yours. Congratulations on your awards!

  7. Nice to meet u :) Congrats on ur awards, and I'm quite jealous of the baby kangaroo part... I did get to meet a sloth once even though it was a hands to myself encounter...

  8. Congratulation on your awards! Thanks for nominating me, you're the best! Your pink slippers are very cute, I want one like that too! I'm so jealous that you've held a baby kangaroo. They're very cute! <3

  9. Thanks so much for nominating me for the Kreativ Blogger Award! Every artist in the world would agree that being rewarded for your creativity is one of the most wonderful compliments! How fun that you've held a baby kangaroo! I've held a baby alligator, so we're kind of the same, right? lol. I also can't cartwheel, and would rather die that speak in public. Maybe that's why I'm a blogger. :P This is how I'd rather be heard! Haha. Thanks again! :)
