Versatile Blogger

Well... I'm not sure I'm a Versatile Blogger, though I do enjoy blogging about different things, and hope to continue to blogging more personal things (not just fashion) in the near future. My friend Kristin over at Buttons & Pockets nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award, and I figured I'd pass on the award to some fantastic people.

Versatile Blogger Award in a nutshell: Blog friends "nominate" each other, whether they have met IRL or not. Then, you thank the person who mentioned your blog. Again, thanks Kristin! After that, you share 7 things that your readers may not know about you (oh boy!). Lastly, you nominate 15 blogs you love for the award. Awesome, right?

Alright. 7 things you may not know about me.. this may be harder than it seems:

1. Matt and I are working hard to get out of debt. After reading Dave Ramsey's book "Total Money Makeover," we decided to get serious. There are definitely some blogs that I have kept up with along our journey that have helped us out... they will be mentioned below! Looking to start paving your way to financial freedom? Check out this Personal Finance Checklist!

2. I have been to Europe. Specifically Italy, England, Germany, Switzerland and a very short stop in France. I would love to go back to Italy, but Greece would be where I would choose to go next if I could get a free trip anywhere!



Germany (It rained. A lot):


3. I grew up in the small town of Parker, Arizona. I did dance, twirl, ballet and every other form of girly activity you can think of. Here is proof:

4. I like to bake. Cooking, not so much. Baking I'm all for!

5. I love Jesus Christ. Without him I am nothing.

6. I'm not a huge animal person. The HORROR! Puppies are cute, sure... but then they grow up and poop and destroy things and smell. Maybe someday we'll have a dog, but right now? No thank you.

However, if the dog stayed like this forever, I'm all for it!:

Sidenote: I say that now, but I still don't like the smell of dog food.

7. I don't like the beach... I only went a handful of times while living in California. The crowds, the salt water, the sand... ugh. I'll take a lake or a river any day!

The Colorado River (Parker, Arizona):

There you go! Now, on to the fun part! Here are the 15 blogs I nominate for the award:

Alright, folks. Let's get to this!
