Versatile Blogger

 Last week, Betty @ Northwest Betty and Jayme at The Simple, Sweet Life gave me my second blog award! Thanks! (If you haven't checked out their blogs, you must--I love them!) So now I get to give it out. Here's how it works:
1. Thank and link back to who gave you the award.
2. Share seven things about yourself.
3. Pass it along to seven blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy
4. Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award.

Ok, so here are seven random things:

1.) I grew up near across the street from some sort of semi-farm. Once a peacock came into our driveway, and an emu laid eggs in my dad's boat. A horse got loose and ran circles around our house. Looking back, it was not a well-secured semi-farm.

This is a different emu that lived near my house. I promise I'm from a normal town ... of emu-lovers.

2.) My stepfather is a potter and I love it! Our house is filled with ceramics.

Part of our wedding gift from Mom & Steve.

3.) I use an extreme amount of cups and leave them everywhere, much to the distress of those around me.

4.) I interned in Austin, Texas for a summer at a magazine.

5.) I talk to strangers for a living, but don't like to order pizza or make appointments or talk to randoms on the phone when it's non-work related.

6.) I didn't like condiments until last year, starting with ketchup and I felt really ashamed about it. Now I kind of like a tiny bit of mustard.

7.) This one is from Nurse A: I don't close cabinet doors, ever, and I don't even notice.

Now I get to give the award to seven people! I'm trying not to do doubles, but I might, and I'm trying to stick to the "recently discovered." I love these blogging ladies!
