Versatile Blogger Award

So I have received this award twice. Well, technically one was for Newly Wife and one for Crochet Every Day. But it is about time that I actually partake, so thanks to the other Megan for picking me! And definitely check out her blog, Fowl Single File... it is super cute! Also, thanks to Sara at Savvy Stitcher for picking us at Newly Wife. We may post again there, with different stuff!

So, this Versaltile Blogger Award comes with some stipulations and here they are:

1. Thank the person who gave you this award...
2. Share 7 things about yourself...
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic! (in no particular order...)
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.

Alright. Seven things about Megan:
1. I broke my ankle while jumping over a pile of laundry in my (then) boyfriend's (now hubby's) room. The inner piece of the bone (my bro could tell u the name) snapped off and I now have 2 permanent screws in there. It does not bother me too often, unless I put a lot of dead weight on it (like sit with my feet on the table and computer on my lap) and then get up - it gets stiff.
2. I like to work out, but I'm lazy. We recently implemented a plan where every 25 workouts (2o min of physical activity, but only 1 counts per day) gets me a dvd. I love it! And really by we, I mean I, because I know I am motivated by that kinda stuff. I need sticker charts & rewards. It's a kind of conditioning which I no longer have to remember because...
3. I majored in psych and did 1 year of a Master's Program for my MFT (Counseling) before I realized it was not what I really wanted to do. I was raised that we don't quit, so withdrawing was really hard for me.
4. I was a cheerleader in college, but not in high school.
5. I lived in Salzburg, Austria for 5 months during my junior year of college. It was a wonderful experience and I do miss it at times. Especially living with my closest friends and being able to just hop on a train and visit another country.
6. We honeymooned in Mexico, on a cruise. During our snorkel trip, I was afraid of the drinks - scared of the water they served (it was a little boat for the excursion) and that the ice would melt into our drinks. So we kept getting free margaritas, and I drank them real fast, before the ice could melt. haha
7. I miss my family terribly, because my parents and my mom's side of the family (whom I saw at least once a month growing up) lives in Nor Cal. But it's too cold there. Can we all move to the central coast where it's a good mix of hot and cool weather?

Now... some people to check out (I'm not posting 15, but here are a few from my reader that you should visit. Please do not feel obligated to "accept" this award and post it on your blog if you get it. Just know I like to read your site and want others to love your site too!)
