Versatile Blogger Award

Wow, Interwebs, I got an award!  Samantha at And Baby Will Make 3! gave me the Versatile Blogger Award.  Samantha is my light of hope.  She also has the nastiness that is PCOS, and yet, she is pregnant!  Not only pregnant, but at 27 weeks!  She's such a happy person, and always leaves the sweetest comments on my posts.  She really has made a huge difference in my life from her support.  This IF journey may suck, but at least I'm not traveling the road by myself anymore!  Thanks Samantha, for the award, and more importantly, all your support!

The Rules of the Award:
  • Thank and link back to the person nice enough to give you the award
  • Share seven things about yourself
  • Pass along the award to seven other bloggers who you think are fabulous, and let them know they got the award
Seven Things About Me:
  1. I am an only child, but I have three half sisters.  The reason I still call myself an only?  The three sisters don't really talk to me because they hate our father.  Which is crap, because my dad is awesome!  It really bugged me as a kid, but I'm getting more used to it as I get older.  Their loss, right?
  2. I am a bibliophile.  No, its not as dirty as it sounds.  I love books.  I love the way they can transform an otherwise uneventful car ride into a magical place.  I love the way books feel, and love the smell of bookstores and libraries.  Yeah, I'm a nerd, but I'm a happy one!
  3. And speaking of the nerd thing, I might as well confess now that I play computer games.  My favorite one right now is Civilizations V, which came out a couple of weeks ago.  It's a turn based game where you control your civilization from beginning (huts and villages) to end (glorious victory and world domination!).
  4. Another nerd thing: I was in the FBLA in high school.  Not only in FBLA, but I was actually in the presidency my senior year.  I went to state competition every year, and placed in the top five each time. 
  5. I am hugely competitive.  This makes me a sore loser.  Friendly game of cards?  I will ruthlessly try to take you down.  If I lose, don't expect me to forget either.  I'll remember and get you back when you least expect it!
  6. I create little animals out of oven bake clay.  It's really soothing to me to take a block of something, and create something cute out of it.  They aren't masterpieces by any means, but I love doing it.  It's also fun to break out the clay when friends bring over their kids.  It instantly turns me into the cool one because I'll sit on the floor and create with them.
  7. Along with number 6, I might as well confess that I prefer being around kids to most adults.  They have such a beautiful easy take on life that makes me smile.  I may not be able to be around newborns, or pregnant friends, but once the kids hit the age of two and up, they are my best friends.  I regularly have neighbor kids come up to my house to see if I can play, or just to tell me about their days at school.  I keep a freezer stocked with popsicles for them as well.
Now for my 7 nominations!  I'm sure I'm going to be giving the award to some people who've already recieved it, but tough cookies!
