Accepting the Versatile Blogger Award

          Thanks to Fabiola of My Heart of Mexico I can now call myself an award winning blogger!
I put a lot of work into this blog, speaking about my interests as well as bearing my soul at times, and it is truly gratifying to know someone recognizes and appreciates it. Especially from a peer whose work I am familiar with and respect myself.


These are the rules
  1. Show the award on your blog.
  2. Thank the person that has nominated you.
  3. Share 7 different facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 15 blogs of your choice.
  5. Link your nominees and let them know of your nomination.

          So without further ado, let's get started. First, show the award on my blog. Award is displayed above, so we can check that one off. Second, thank the person that nominated me. That again was done above, but bears repeating so once more, thank you Fabiola. Third, share 7 facts about me. Here goes:
  1. I have a scar inside my mouth on my cheek from where I cut it with a metal clothes hanger when I was an infant.
  2. My wife and I chose our wedding date almost at random. I asked for a fall date so I wasn't sweating in a tux in church during the spring or summer; and wanted to get it in before there was any snow that would hinder our elderly or traveling guests. We agreed to pick the last Saturday in October, which just so happened to be my paternal Grandparents anniversary date.
  3. I write right handed but play sports left handed.
  4. I am an Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America, and have continued to be an adult leader in both Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts despite my kids being too young for now.
  5. I get sick to my stomach when someone touches my belly button.
  6. I always wear my socks upside-down as I can't stand having the toe line rubbing up against my toe knuckles.
  7. Being a dad is the only thing I've ever done that I don't feel like I failed at.
          Fourth and fifth, nominate 15 blogs, link to them, and let them know. Let's see if I can find 15 blogs that I actually read and think deserves this. If you've already been nominated by someone else, sorry for doubling up on you; I'm too lazy to search through everything myself. Now, in no particular order...
  1. Tyranny of Pink
  2. Journey of Swazi
  3. Bluemands
  4. Because I'm Cheap
  5. Nerdy Mamma
  6. Josh's World
  7. Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondents
  8. Breaking Burgh
  9. It's Just a Bad Day
  10. Emergency Awesome (this is more of a video blog, but I'm running out of nominations so I'll allow it. Plus, I absolutely love this page! I wish my blog could be more like this...)
  11. Daily Musings
  12. Daily (w)rite
  13. Olivia's Catastrophe
  14. Savory Spicerack
  15. House of a Misfit
          Well that's it. To my nominations, keep up the good work. To any I may have overlooked or forgotten I apologize, hopefully this is not the last time I will be nominating for Blog Awards. Please feel free to leave a link to your blog below, as more readers are something we all will never turn away.

Hey Rich, congrats on the nomination and thanks so much for nominating me :) I'm so honoured!
My husband has the same weird feelings about his belly button - hehe I've always thought he's just nuts!
