Versatile Blogger Award

Jennifer at Life, Crafts and Whatever nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award! Thanks Jennifer! :) The rules are similar to the Stylish Blog Award:

-Thank & link back to the person who gave you this award
-Share 7 things about yourself
-Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
-Contact these bloggers and let them know about the award, and let the giver know you accept the award.

Since I have done a couple of recent posts about myself I thought I'd try to be a bit more creative and think of some interesting trivia.

--I volunteer with a great organization called Soldiers' Angels, that provides support to members of our military, their families, and veterans. No matter how much or how little money or time you have, I promise there is a place you can help. There are currently over 1,000 deployed soldiers waiting to be "adopted" by someone like you or me--soldiers that have little or no support from home and would love to receive letters and the occasional care package. Please visit the website and find a team that interests you, or adopt a soldier!

--When I was 16 I had to have my wisdom teeth removed because they were impacted in such a way that my 12-year molars could not come through my gums. I had 5 wisdom teeth. Fun.

--My absolute favorite flower is the calla lily.

--Ever since I was little I knew if ever I got married, I wanted a huge wedding...I got my wish. All total there were 11 groomsmen, 11 bridesmaids, 1 jr. bridesmaid and a flower girl. It was so awesome to be able to include all our family and friends.

--I always thought it would be so awesome to work in the field of psychology, especially with the FBI. The human mind is so fascinating, and I don't think it would ever get dull studying minds.

--When I was tiny and just eating solid foods, I had a love affair with carrots. I ate so many, that I turned orange. Yes, my skin was orange. There's even a word for it: carotenosis.

--I really, really love snorkeling. I've been fortunate enough to do it in both the Caribbean in St. John, and in the Pacific in Hanauma Bay.

Now I would like to pass this award on to the following bloggers:

I'll be back later with a post about my new wreath made from men's necktie scraps :)
