The Versatile Blogger Award

Wow! Two awards in one day?! I don't even know how this is happening! 
I'd like to thank Susan from Today's Working Woman for giving me this award! Thank you for thinking of me, and I'm honored to be given this award.

Here are my instructions upon getting this award:
  • In a post on your blog, nominate 15 fellow bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award.
  • In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award.
  • In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog.
  • In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself.
  • In the same post, include this set of rules.
  • Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.

7 Random things about me:

1. I am a tomboy, and when I was younger I wore mostly boys clothes
2. I don't drink coffee. Sometimes I like the smell, but I don't like the taste
3. As a hobby, I paint, although I've never had a lesson. 
4. I dream of traveling and then someday owning a small farm
5. I dog walk and dog sit as an unofficial part-time job
6. I've never been further west than Illinois
7. At home I'm always bear foot 

And now for the 15 people. Whether I've read you or not, I've picked you! There are a lot of people who already have this award and I have to find 15 who didn't! Challenge accepted.

6. Jane in her infinite wisdom:
9. The Short Story Gal:
10. A Good Cup of Tea... :
11. Pirate Knitting:
12. Notes From My Fridge:

15. Plain Jane's Blog:

At first I wasn't sure how to put the award on my blog, but then I figured it out. For those of you who aren't sure how to include the award on your blog here's what you do:

Save the award picture> Go dashboard> click you blog> go to layout > add gadget> scroll down until you find one that says "picture" (shouldn't be far)> Then just upload the picture, right a title and caption (maybe thanking who gave you the award) and That's it!
