You like me! (Bloggy Awards)

What a great day--I was given awards by 2 different blogs!

Thanks so much to Dede at A Series of 1st Grade Events for giving me The Versatile Blogger Award and to Emily and Antoinette at 4321...Teach for giving me the One Lovely Blog Award.  As a newbie blog, I'm always ecstatic when I get a comment, but a comment AND a blog award in ONE?  That's some serious awesome-ness in my day, folks.  So thanks again, lovely ladies!  I do appreciate it.  :)

Now let's get down to brass tactics.

First up,

Why, thank you, I'm feeling rather lovely today.

Here are the rules for this award:

1.  Follow the person who gave you the award.  (Gladly!)
2.  Link back to the person that gave you the award. (See above.)
3.  Pass the award on to 15 new bloggers.  (See below.)

 Next up is...
Yeah, baby.  I'm versatile.  I can blog a little this, blog a little that.  Whoo!

Here are the rules for this award:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.  Thank you, again!!!
2. Include a link to their site. (above)
3. Include the award image in your post.
4. Give 7 random facts about yourself. (below)
5. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award. (below)
6. When nominating, include a link to their site.
7. Let other bloggers know they've been nominated. (will do)

OK, here are my 7 random facts:

1) When I was in 4th grade, my best friend from down the street accidentally hit me in the head with a sledge hammer.  True story.  I have the scar to prove it.

2) I grew up in Texas and graduated from college in NYC.

3) I have been in LOTS of plays/musicals.  Mostly musicals.  I haven't done one since I got preggo with baby boy 2 years ago, though.

4) My degree is in music, not education.  And I don't want to teach music.  (People always ask me that.)

5) I started blogging personally when I moved to NYC in 2002.  Yes.  I've been blogging for 10 years. That's a third of my life.  And I totally blogged before it was cool.  LOL.

6) I am addicted to reality trash t.v.

7)  I don't like the number 7.  And I don't think it's lucky.

Now, here are my 15 peeps I'd like to send out the Versatile Blogger Award AND the One Lovely Blog Award to!  Ahem, here are the 15 peeps to whom I'd like to give the awards?  I think so. Ugh, grammar.  Anyway, go check out these blogs:

Whoo hoo, I even found some new blogs in this process!  

Of course, don't forget to stop by the lovely blogs who awarded me and made my day!
