Versatile Blogger Award

by Nikki on April 28, 2011

Cyndy over at Yankee Texan Mom was kind enough to present me with this cute award. She actually gave it to me about a week ago, but I was so busy with the Bunny set that I barely checked in for days here. I suck, I know. But, like I said, everything is back to “normal,” whatever normal may be. I’m so sorry it took me so long to get this up Cyndy!

As with most awards, this one has rules. I’m supposed to tell you 7 things about me, then list 15 recently discovered blogs . I really need to stop telling you guys so much about myself so I can actually come up with something when these opportunities present themselves! Let me think, seven new facts. Well, hopefully I’m not repeating myself!


1. I used to play every Final Fantasy game for hours upon hours when they came out. However, since Jake was born I’ve been stuck in the same freaking dungeon area for the last 5 years on FF X-2, and haven’t even gotten the newer ones yet. I miss playing them, but I just don’t have that kind of time anymore.

2. I was a tomboy when I was little. I used to climb trees, run through tick-infested woods (and never got a tick on me), and play rock wars. The nice thing about rock wars versus fake-gun wars- no one can lie and say “oh, you missed me, I ducked at the last second!”  When you’re hit with a rock, there’s no lying your way out of it.

3. My family has a long history of ghost activity, dating back to when my mom was little. I believe in ghosts because they’ve always been a fact rather than a speculation for me.

4. My  aunt is part of the Harrisburg Area Paranormal Society. They’re going to be on Animal Planet when the next season starts in the Fall. I’m so excited, I’ll be related to a TV star!

5. My grandmother was once almost arrested as a spy in Israel. It was a misunderstanding and got cleared up quickly, but still an interesting story.

6. My friend  and I were almost kidnapped in New Orleans. True story. We were lost in the middle of the night, a car pulled up and the creepy guy demanded we get in. He was about to make his move when another car pulled up to the light. We were lost for hours. The police just laughed and told us we picked the wrong part of town to get lost in. A desk clerk at a Holiday Inn took pity on us and called us a cab.  I was 17 at the time.

7. Despite the fact that I was pretty much the class freak, I only lost winning Prom Queen by two votes. I lost to a really sweet girl, so it wasn’t too bad.

Blogs I’ve recently started following:

Ad Meliora Vertamur– My best friend’s brand-spanking-new blog. She’s incredibly hilarious!

Raenbows and Mud Puddles

Darlin’ Mama

Lemon Drop Pie

Here Be Magic

A Day in the Wife

I’ll add more in later, half the blogs I follow aren’t showing up in my reader right now. Wonky little thing, I tell you!
