I won this award:

Hooray! :0)

I'm not embarrassed to admit I Googled Versatile.  This is what it means according to :

  • capable of or adapted for turning easily from one to anotherof various tasks, fields of endeavor, etc.: a versatile writer.  (Yup.  Some may call it ADD.  I much prefer versatile.  And the shoe fits.)
  • having or capable of many uses: a versatile tool. (I can write a blog, shop online, check facebook, get my kids back into bed, get my kids back into bed again...all at the same time.  I have many uses!)
  • Botany attached at or near the middle so as to swingfreely, as an anther. (Huh?  I swing freely?  Like an anther?)

Here are the rules for accepting this award:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
    Thank you Tasha at One Day at a Time.....  Tasha has a sweet blog about her life and  family.  She is a huge advocate for her little boy with Infantile Scoliosis.  And she is a home educator.  I could learn a lot from her!

2. Tell 7 things about yourself.
  • When I was 17, I went on a date with a gorgeous guy.  I was smitten.  We're still dating....even if our dates often include our children.  And I'm still smitten.
  • I love all vegetables accept for eggplant.  I really want to love it...but yuck!  Maybe I just don't know how to cook it.  I really wish the rest of my family would love veggies because it's really hard to eat a sack of turnips by myself.
  • I was a preschool teacher before I had kids and I LOVED teaching.  I miss it sometimes, but I find being a stay at home mom to be more rewarding.
  • I'm not scared of bugs if they have 6 legs or less.  Anything over 6 legs is just plain creepy.  I made myself hold a millipede in college to get over my fear. *shudder*  Obviously, it didn't work.
  • If any sport involves a ball, even putt putt golf or bowling, I will lose.  Or my team will lose.  I'm that uncoordinated.
  • I really enjoy doing the laundry.  I find it soothing, and I can fold while I watch the television.  If anyone would like to clean my kitchen, I'll do your laundry.  Any takers?
  • I thought I'd be a lot better at being a wife/mom.  I think we all think that, don't we?  Sometimes I wish I had a mentor to come in and show me how it's done.  But when my kids give me a zillion hugs throughout the day and when Erik gives me that same smile that melted my 17 year old heart, I realize God has blessed me immensely and I'm eternally grateful. 
3. Now I must pass on the Versatile Blogger Award.  I follow a lot of great blogs!

I'm linking to my dear friend at Copelands on the Cusp.  She just has the sweetest family.  I love her writing and I admire her mothering skills.  I want to be her when I grow up. :)

PS- Please forgive the funkiness of this blog entry's format.  I'm not quite sure what happened, but I'm going to swing like an anther and let it go.


  1. Congratulations Tiffiny! And yes, you have a taker...I HATE doing laundry but LOVE cleaning the kitchen. Okay, maybe love is a strong word but I would much rather do that than laundry!

  2. Awwww, you're precious. Thanks for the award. I'll put this on my to-do list tomorrow. It's pretty extensive what with my sitting on the couch all day! Now, I'm off to think of 7 things about me. You're sweet, thanks again!
