versatile: embracing a variety of subjects, fields, or skills

Aww...My first blogger award. Thank you, Kerri at Oh Mann! for awarding me The Versatile Blogger Award! You can read about her life with her Canadian and their two boys...

On to the "rules" of this award:
1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award
2. Answer 10 questions
3. Pass it along to 7 blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy
4. Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award

The 10 Questions...

1. Why did you create this blog?
I wanted to be able to share with other women but, as an introvert and busy mom of five boys, I don't keep up with "real life" friendships well. No chatting over coffee or shopping trips for me. And I wanted an outlet, something just for ME. I've always liked to write and blogging ties it all together.

2. What kinds of blogs do you follow?
Like-minded moms, typically moms of boys, who have similar parenting styles and faith beliefs. 

3. Favorite make-up brand?
Physicians' Formula mineral makeup, mostly

4. Favorite clothing brand?
No allegiances to brands, but I do prefer natural fibers and good quality at discount prices. 

5. Indispensable makeup product?
Physicians' Formula mineral wear foundation

6. Favorite color?
Right now...turquoise/aqua. And gray. Almost always, cool colors, blues/greens.

7. Favorite perfume?
I don't wear perfume, it gives me headaches. Prefer natural scents, like essential oils, in lotions and soaps.

8. Favorite film?
If I ever got to watch anything other than action movies or comedies, I might be able to answer this one better...Pride & Prejudice, maybe. I can't seem to think of any other movies at the moment.

9. What country would you like to visit and why?
I've always wanted to go to Ireland because it was so green and lush-looking. And I love their accents. :)

10. Would you rather forget to put mascara on one eye or forget blush on one side of your face?
Mascara since I don't wear it consistently anyway. Definitely need blush for some color.


  1. yayyy! :) #1 is TOTALLY me too! :)

  2. Cool, now I know a little bit more about you. Agree I totally don't like perfume either. About mascara that's a cute one b/c for some reason I'm always forgetting to put on my deodorant LOL. I might look nice but smell is yet another thing to consider ah ha.

  3. Hi! I'm your newest follower! Come check out my blog at: I hope you'll subscribe to my blog too!

    Have a great day!

  4. Loved your answers, some very similar to my thoughts. :]

    I lovingly passed this award back to you. I'm not sure if that is breaking a rule, and I don't expect you to resend 7 more...but if anyone deserves the award, it's you! Your blog is one of my most favorites and I surely couldn't think of anyone I'd love to send it to more than you!

  5. Thanks for the award Christy! We sound so similar..introvert, Pride & Prejudice, and turquoise describe me too! :)

  6. Stopping by from Hip Homeschool Hop, and definitely will add your blog to my googlereader! I can relate to #1 & #7 too :)

  7. How VERY nice!

    I really like the name of your blog.

    Thank you for stopping by mine! I am following you now!


  8. hi there! I am visiting from HHH. Congrats on your award!

  9. Christy! Thank you for the nomination! I'll be posting on it Friday. It's funny, we are so similar it's scary. And I was just looking at trying the PF mineral make-up. So glad to hear someone who uses it and likes it! Love all the knight info above too. We may dig into that- we just hit the time period in history. Perfect!


Comments are like getting a letter in the mail...a bright spot in my day! Thank you!
