My first blog award!

Thank you... Thank you... Thank you to my new friend, Claire, who just awarded me with my first blog award!  I'm so happy, I could cry... can someone please pass me a Kleenex? 

I feel the title of this award, "The Versatile Blogger," is very appropriate because my blog is so, well... versatile.  Life with Greg, teaching, law school, refinishing furniture, friends & family, traveling - I just write about anything and everything that is happening in our lives.  So I am very flattered that someone actually finds it interesting!

How to play:
1. Thank the person that gave you the award.
2. Tell your readers 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers you have recently discovered & love reading about!
4. Contact the bloggers & let them know you gave them an award!


1.  I like ice cream like I like oxygen.
2.  My dream job does not exist (I don't think).  I want to be a professional choir singer.  Sometimes I think the worst part about my job as a choir director is that I can't actually sing with my ensembles.  It is like holding a carrot in front of my face all day. 

3.  I love to learn.  I mean I really love to learn.  I wish I could be a professional student also.
4.  I like to paint my nails crazy colors... orange, green, black, blue... whatever.

5.  I just started taking my first photography class, and I am so excited about it!!  

6.  My first wreck was in 10th grade when I rear-ended my parents on the other side of town on my way to watch graduation.  Getting in a wreck is scary.  Seeing your parents step out of the vehicle that you just plowed into is even scarier.
7.   Last but not least, I am a self-diagnosed furniture hoarder.
