Versatile Blogger Award

the_versitle_Blogger_award[4] Thank you to Celine the Soaperstar for nominating me for this award! She is a fabulous soapmaker, as well as an advocate for soapmakers around the world. I find her blog to be highly informative and personable.

The concept behind the Versatile Blogger Award is to follow a few rules and then pass it on to whatever blog you think deserves it. The rules are:

1 – Make a post and link it back to the person who gave you the award (and include their website address)
2 – Share 7 random things about yourself
3 – Award 7 recently discovered bloggers with this award and contact them to let them know they have won

So, I guess it’s time to fill you in on some little known facts about me.

1. I first met my husband in my home church during the summer between my sophomore and junior years of college. He was already out of school and working, and I thought he was too old for me!

He's all mine now!

2. My favorite movie is Pride & Prejudice (the newest version).

Yes, I like it better than the original!

3. I can play the piano, the flute, and the guitar tolerably well. Love to sing too. (no photo necessary!)

4. My older daughter will be 10 years old on Thursday! Aaaaaaaah! Her goldfish has been having babies this week, and we finally figured out why they kept disappearing. Apparently goldfish eat their young. Isn’t that just disgusting? We finally saved two of them and put them in a jar next to the tank.

Here you can see one of them!

5. My younger daughter is so flexible, she can put both her feet behind her head. Ouch.

Here's the proof!

6. My parents will be celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in October!

7. Yesterday, I started the process of making some pickled watermelon rinds for the first time. I grew up eating them, but haven’t had them in ages! The recipe my mom sent me is a 3-day process. I hope they turn out, because I have 9 and a half pounds of rinds pickling!

Soap pots work great for canning too!

Now to pass on the Versatile Blogger Award. I would like to nominate the following blogs:

And like Celine, it was difficult to stop at 7! I could go on and on…
