Versatile Blogger Award

Ok, so I’m pretty new to the blogging world, so I don’t know if this is as big of a deal as I’m thinking it is…but it’s an award!

It doesn’t really matter if 2 million other people have it, right? It’s an award! The Versatile Blogger Award.

I got all giddy when I got the message…I don’t think I’ve gotten an award since high school!


There are some rules that come with this award:

Rule #1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.

Thanks to Cheryl of That’s what {Che} Said! I’ve been so impressed by Cheryl’s site – it’s full of crafty ideas, recipes and much more…and she does it all while corralling 2 little boys! You’ll love her recent posts on Halloween decor – especially the Ghost Lights and the Mummy Pigs-in-a-Blanket.


Rule #2: Share 7 Things about yourself


7 things about me:

1. I am a gringa living in Puebla, Mexico with my husband and two boys (and I’m still learning Spanish).

2. I just listed the only interesting fact about myself in number 1.

3. Favorite movies: Anne of Green Gables, Newsies, Life is Beautiful

4. I love thrift stores and have yet to find a single one in Mexico (it’s a tragedy, I know).

5. I LOVE coffee. All day, in any weather.

6. I love to online shop…except that I don’t ever buy anything. I fill my cart, apply coupon codes and then chicken out because I have severe buyers remorse.

7. If I was rich, pedicures would be my guilty pleasure.


Rule #3: Pass the award on to 15 blogs that were recently discovered!
