This past week I was very excited to receive not one, but TWO Versatile Blogger Awards. What an honor to be recognized by my fellow bloggers; Alarm Clock Wars a blogger who shares my same Alma mater and an interest in animals and shoes. And 3 Kids and lots of Pigs, this woman can sew with one hand, cook with the other and still find time to raise 3 kids and help with the family hog farm, (multi-tasking at its best). Please stop by both of these ladies blogs and check out what they are up to.
So here are the rules of the award:
Thank the person who gave you this award. (See above.)
Share 7 things about yourself. (See below.)
Pass the award on to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and think are fantastic.
Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.
So... 7 things about me:
1.) I am a little freaked out/scared by taxidermy animals. Ok, not a little… a lot!!!
2.) I have a professional blog The Ag Grant Guru that I manage for work with all the latest grant opportunities for ag producers and organizations.
3.) I only like going to the grocery store with my husband, because when we are both getting items it goes twice as fast.
4.) I love (not like) LOVE sunflowers.
5.) The older I get the more I like Mexican food.
