Sharing Is Good

Thank you to Ermie for honoring me with the Versatile Blogger Award :)   Yippee!

These are the rules - - for with such an award, there is responsibility, and most of the time I'm very responsible.

* Nominate 15 others for the award and inform them with a comment on each of their blogs.  (I, however, am irresponsible right off the bat and am only going to nominate 7 others today).

* Create a post for the Versatile Blogger Award (hence, this post).

* Thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog (see above --  2 out of 3 so far!).

* Share 7 random things about myself.

* And, of course, include this set of rules (which, really are just guidelines in my humble opinion).

Randomness about me - -
(1) I am left handed
(2) I wanted to be a police detective when I was younger
(3) I just finished eating a purple cupcake :)
(4) My husband is 9 years younger than I am
(5) My grown children just recently found out how old I REALLY am (I've been VERY good at telling them all sorts of ages, none of which was my REAL age)
(6) I used to play high school softball
(7) My nickname as a child (given by my siblings) was gutter head.

And now, without further ado - - my seven nominees.   You may see a theme.  I follow some wonderful photography blogs.  I do a lot of traveling through those blogs.   And, I have discovered a couple of new, shall we say irreverantly bold blogs lately dealing with motherhood that I LOVE.   Here goes - -

Daryl at all-throughmyeyes.blogspot.com - - I visit NYC a lot through Daryl's amazing bird's eye view photos.

Anni at whatisbelgium.blogspot.com - -  Beautiful, heartfelt photos of Belgium.  Thanks to Anni's photos, I also visit Belgium  . . . often.

Gina and Teri at our-wild-hearts.blogspot.com - - They are collectors of wild hearts :)

Teri at terihoover-crystal-iris.images.blogspot - -  I have a soft spot in my heart for Teri.

blog.mommyrotten.com - - hilariously honest.

adventuresofnotsupermom.com - - like mommyrotten, notsupermom is hilarious.  If you're a mom, she's a must read.

Selena at becausemotherhoodsucks.com - - I don't think she really thinks motherhood sucks, but lucky for us she is irreverant and hilarious.

So, there you have it.  Please visit these blogs.   You will find a whole new world you never knew existed!


  1. Yay you! And congratulations to all of the nominees! I'll be sure to visit and tell them Judy sent me! :D

  2. Purple cupcake? What does that taste like??? Congratulations :)

    1. I too am intrigued by the purple cupcake...

  3. Ha ha! I love the fact that your children didn't know how old you are and that you got away with it for so long. I'm thinking of telling people that I'm ten years older than I really am so that they'll say things like, 'Wow! You look great for your age!' as opposed to 'Oh...' followed by an awkward silence. ;-)

  4. Fun new decor .. tho one thing might be suggested .. larger darker font to make reading over this lovely background less of a challenge .. WV is enough of a challenge .. or maybe its just me .. carry on!

    1. I've been so busy catching up I forgot to comment on the cool new decor! I love it!

      My only problem reading it, Judy, is that in my browser, the text is wider than the green part, so some of it is on the stripes. I can help you fix that if you'd like. "Cutest Blog On the Block" should be able to too since it's their template. Lemme know!

      (Did I mention I love it! :) )

    2. Thanks! When I look At my blog it looks great and is easy to read. But I've had others tell me it's kind of hard to read. I would love your help! HELP!!!!!

    3. I'm going to email you. Check in about 5 minutes :)

  5. I'm back .. due to the aforementioned trouble reading your blog with the new pretty background I didnt see I was tagged .. I dont do tags or MEMEs but because I like you I will do it here .. 7 random things about me:

    1. I am left handed but I do everything but write with my right hand
    2. I dont know anything about how my camera works
    3. I dont want to know anything about how my camera works ..
    4. I point, I shoot, I get a photo
    5. I am a cancer survivor
    6. I am a native New Yorker, I cant imagine living anywhere else
    7. I am was a pescatarian (ate only fish) but my thyroid has been having issues so recently I began eating chicken so I guess now I am a poutrarian ...

  6. I'm a leftie too, although Mama tells me she had to go down to St. Joseph's school, when I was in first grade, and instruct that nice Sister Damien (my middle name is Damien) to let me write with the hand I chose, not the one she chose. I remain a south-paw.

  7. Geez Judy thank-you!! I am feeling the love... and I only chose 5 blogs to highlight- 15 would be kind of crazy.

  8. Aaaw, thanks!! I've been slacking recently.
