Versatile Blogger Award and Nominees!

Recently, I was nominated by the lovely Melanie of Melanie's Fancies as a Versatile Blogger! WOO HOO!!! Thank you for this. I feel so special as my blog is barely wobbling on its two feet-haha. =]

 After reading up on it, I guess the whole point to is nominate others who are fairly new to blogging. Which is cool because you get to help spread the word that there's new blogs to be read and followed! :)

Here are the rules to this award: 
1. Nominate 15 fellow bloggers who are relatively new to blogging
2. Let them know that you have nominated them.
3. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
4. Thank the bloggers who have nominated you.
5. Add the Versatile Blogger Award picture to your post

7 Random Facts About Me

2. I always said as a kid that when i grew up, i wanted twins...WELL I GOT THEM! AND ANOTHER ONE 17 MONTHS LATER! These are my boys on halloween last year(2012), from left to right- Brock, Liam and Michael(Mikey)

3. I love singing. Seriously, LOVE music and singing and musicals. I sang in middle and high school. Sang at our graduation ceremony and was later asked that summer if i would be interested in singing for sporting events for the local junior college...i had to turn them down as I was leaving for the military, which leads us to random fact #4

4. I was in the Air Force for a little over two years of active duty service. I left for bootcamp a week after my 19th birthday. I cut my career short when shark boy^^ up there decided he was going to become a part of the family about two years too early lol. We wanted the twins to be older before having another child but apparently THAT wasn't the plan after all! So i decided to get out of the military to be a stay at home mom. I always dreamed of having a long term military career but my kids definitely come first.

5. Also going along with the military theme...i met my husband, Brian in tech school..we found out that we were actually a week apart in training and had been in the same squadron for bootcamp the entire time..marching around one another and never even knew it. He said he saw me at karaoke one night but didn't talk to me because he thought i wouldn't be interested. But a week later he saw me again and boy did he get my attention! He was obnoxious as heck<<but he was cute, so i stuck around.. People bet that we wouldn't last six months married and in two months, we will be celebrating our sixth wedding anniversary! look at us now! :)

6. I'm a nerd...no, seriously. Doctor Who, Eureka,  Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Twilight(ONLY FOR THE LOVE STORY-i could care less about the vampires and whatnot), True Blood, Game of Thrones, Lord Of The Rings, The Tenth Kingdom... I find myself constantly rereading the books and shows/movies. I've always been a bookworm and don't ever plan to change that! 

7. Christmas...i love the holidays so much that i have been banned from certain things until black friday...like peppermint flavored drinks and treats as well as wintery scented candles and/or scentsy and of course...the movies and music.  

I nominate the following for the Versatile Blogging award:

And i have a bonus one!!!
