Fine Awards

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas....

One of the nice perks of blogging is that every so often awards are handed out from fellow bloggers.  Right before the craziness of Thanksgiving two fellow bloggers bestowed the honor upon me.  Now before I’m completely engulfed in the Christmas frenzy I wanted to pass on the awards and say thanks.  Oh, by the way, I’m dreaming of a white Christmas. How about you?

I want to say, “thank you” for being handed the Versatile Blogger award by Karen at Back Road Journal,  If you’ve not checked out her blog, do so.  She writes an entertaining blog about food and travel.  I’m envious of her recent travels in Europe and her lovely homes in New Hampshire and Maine.  She probably will have some white stuff at Christmas.

There are rules for the Versatile Blogger Award. (1) I must list 7 random things about myself that you don’t know and (2) nominate 10 bloggers to receive the award.

Here goes: 7 things about me:  1. I once had a cat that lived to be 18 years old – the best cat ever. 2. I’m afraid of heights in certain situations and while in Switzerland I sat down on a path high in the alps and started to cry – I was so afraid (silly).  3. I’ve lived on both the east and west coasts, but always return to my home state, Texas.  4. Wine, water and coffee are my favorite drinks.  5. I’ve worked with pre-school children for 13 years, this will be my last.  6. I am 5’10” tall.  7. I think talking on a cell phone in public places is a no-no.
Here are my nominees for the Versatile Blogger Award.  Not all are food related blogs but ones I enjoy just the same.

Linda at Savoring Every Bite, – awarded me with the Liebster Award.  She posted the nicest “to do” list prior to Thanksgiving and if you take a peek at her blog I’m sure she’ll have something you won’t want to miss for the Christmas holiday as well.  Thanks Linda!

The Liebster Blog Award goes to five bloggers that you want to recognize as up and coming bloggers with less than 200 followers. You link to who awarded you, list your five blogs and contact them on their blog. I want to pass this award to the following:,

If you find yourself with a few free minutes during the upcoming weeks be sure and check out those I’ve passed the awards along to. Several of the blogs I awarded are not food blogs but worthy of a peek, for sure.
