Versatile Blogger Award

Sharla from "The Chaos and the Clutter" awarded me with the Versatile Blogger Award because you can find everything from homeschooling to frugal tips to family fun on my blog. Her kind words blessed my heart and I'm thankful for this sweet award. Have you visited Sharla's blog? If not, please take a moment to do so. She writes about her family, adoption, homeschooling, frugal living, and God's Word. Thank you Sharla!

Here are the rules for this award:

Okay, I will try not to break any of these rules. Let's get started. Here are seven things you may not know about me...

1) I am currently taking my last college course to complete my undergraduate degree. I began my studies at the University of Missouri - Columbia and I am able to complete my studies through this university even though I live in Pennsylvania now. I am completing my degree online (of course) through their online degree completion program. I am simply doing this to finish something I started. I have no plans to leave home and enter the work force because I am currently working my dream job and loving it.

2) I am a recent convert to running. This is my 4th week and I actually ENJOY it! I think it's because it gives me a few moments to be ALONE and OUT of my house. I was also ready for something new in my workout routine and running is working for me.

3) We are a one-vehicle family and have been since the summer of 2006. So, when I say I am a stay-at-home mom, I really mean it. Which is why I think I enjoy running like I do.

4) Because of my husband I like shows like Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and Firefly. Honestly, I would have never watched these shows unless we were married, but I actually like this stuff! Who knew? Geekiness is contagious, so you've been warned!

5) I want a tattoo. Maybe I will get one when I reach my goal weight. I am more than halfway there!

6) I want to be a farmer. I want chickens and a few cows and I want a HUGE vegetable garden and a small orchard would be nice too.

7) I want to learn to play the piano again. I took lessons for at least five years when I was younger and I should be able to play well. The saying "If you don't use it, you lose it" is true.

Good for you for taking up running! That will be a huge help in getting to your weight goal and then you can get that tattoo! I am allergic to running (or at least that's what I tell myself)!!!
