Versatile Blogger Award!

So around 4:30 this morning when feeding JJ I checked my phone. Why I thought I would have any messages is beyond me, but guess what I did! I had one from Gmail informing that Jeanette from My own four corners had given me a blog award!

Thanks Jeanette! Now I really need to keep up with this blog! Thanks for the motivation!

Here are the official rules:
  • Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
  • Tell your readers seven (7) things about you.
  • Give this award to fifteen (15) recently discovered bloggers.
  • Contact those bloggers and let them in on the exciting news.

Okay 7 Things about me:

1. I love art, but I can't decided which kind of art I like best. I actaully have a hug backlog of art ideas stored in my head; some are drawings with pencil or on the computer; some are painting. I can never find enough time though!

2. I want to be a photographer semi-professionally, but I am afraid to put myself out there.

3. I hated my son's name when my husband first picked it out (which was when I was pregnant with my daughter). However, once I found out I was having a boy I just knew that it was his name.

4. I'm a gamer girl. That's right, I play video games. Growing up I had my brother who played games and the only other kid on my street was a boy and he played games. I still enjoy them, and yes that includes World of Warcraft. Although not so much right now, I don't have time to play anymore.

5. I am the youngest in my family, but I felt like an only child. My brother is 10 years older then me.

6. I miss my brother and his wife a lot. Right before I moved overseas we had become really close now that we are both adults.

7. I love the sound and smell of rain. It is relaxing and I could sit outside in a covered area and listen to it all day.
