I Recieved An Award!

I received The Versatile Blogger award from Teri author of the blog The Freshman Cook. This is my first award from another blogger and am just tickled pink that Teri thought of me. Thank you so much Teri!

This is the how the Versatile Blogger award works:
Thank the person who awarded you by linking back to their post (Thank you again Teri!)
Pass the award on to 15 other new or newly discovered blogs
List 7 interesting things about yourself

Here are 7 interesting (I hope!) things about myself:

1. I have a degree in Political Science

2. I actually used this degree for something other than law school. My first "grown-up" job was working for the United States Congress. I worked there for 4 years till my boss lost his re-election bid in 2010.

3. I love horseback riding. I was on the Wisconsin Team in and completed at national shows (we placed Top Ten!), but I haven't ridden since we had to put down my Gilbert in 2009.

4. I live in Green Bay, Wisconsin and love the Packers.... and cheese and beer

5. I am terrified of baking, but do it anyways

6. I am adopted and so happy fate gave me the family it did

7. My husband is my favorite person in world. We had a long road to get where we are, but the journey was worth every minute.

Here are 15 I am passing this award on to:


  1. I have received this one a couple times but it's always nice to get an award and be appreciated. Thank you so much, have a great weekend.

  2. Congrats on winning the award, you definitely deserve it. And thanks for passing it on to me. I also have received it several times and I appreciate it, it's very kind of you. Your political science degree and working with Congress. Good for you!!! And sorry about your Gilbert. Have a great weekend!

  3. By the way... My husband has been a huge Packer's fan all his life, but it's DA Bears for me! Love WI!

  4. Thank you :) This is the first time I've gotten an award!

  5. Thanks so much! I love reading your blog and congrats to you on receiving the award! This is the first award we have received as well! And I hope you don't hold it against me that I'm a Viking, but hey, I say we can all get along! Right? :)

  6. Thanks so much for the award!! I am glad you chose me, because if you hadn't I never would have found your wonderful blog!! I'm your newest follower :o)

  7. I have the most wonderful wifey who certainly knows the way to a man's heart. Love you!
