Versatile Blogger Award

My very first blogger nomination :) Not only a great award but I was nominated by one of my favourite bloggers, Courtney from Strawberree Swing. She has phenomenal taste and a great writing style. If you haven't checked out her blog yet you definitely should by clicking here. I don't think you can go back and nominate the person who nominated you...but if I could I would definitely nominate her! Anyways, onto the award!

I went to the Versatile Blogger Award site and got the low down on what it was all about. The rules are simple: Thank the person who nominated you (Check!), Nominate 15 amazing blogs, let those bloggers know, and reveal 7 things about yourself.
I am going to take a page from Courtney's blog. Since I am such a new blogger, 15 bloggers is a lot for a newbie like me. So I will follow her lead and list 7 random facts about myself, and in turn nominate 7 bloggers for this award:)

7 Random Facts
1. My whole life I was convinced I wanted to be a doctor. No one could talk me out of it. I even went to University for Bio-Med for a little bit. When all is said and done though, I am now an Accountant.
2. My brother and sister are old enough to be my parents. There is an 18 year age gap between them and myself.
3. The one thing that never fails to make me happy is my puppy Ollie.
4. The only food I ate till I was about 10 years old was Kraft Dinner. Now it makes me sick.
5. I once went to a Ricky Martin concert (Don't ask!)
6. It takes me about 2-3 hours to fall asleep every night.
7. If I could only watch one TV channel for the rest of my life, it would be The Food Network.

Now for the 7 bloggers I nominate for the award:
1. Aleeza from Stylish and Literate
2. Michelle from Eat Paint Sniff Glue
3. Jayne from Cosmetic Proof
4.  City Girl
6. Jem from Precious Jems

Thank you again to anyone that reads my blog. It still amazes me that people care what I have to say. Every comment makes my day and I really have discovered some great people through blogging. Good decision all around if you ask me :)

  1. I am so addicted to the food network! I watch it at the gym LOL. Dreaming about food while working out, it doesn't get any better!
    Thank you for the nomination <3 and congrats on the award! -Steph

    1. Haha I watch it at the gym sometimes too! You're very welcome I always appreciate amazing Canadian bloggers :) xo

  2. Wow - thanks very much for the nomination and congrats on yours! We have a lot in common - it takes me forever to fall asleep as well, I love, love, love the food network and I used to be part of Ricky Martin's fan club (Shhh - don't tell anyone).

    I actually loved taking accounting in high school - I thought I wanted to do that for a career (but now I'm just in a never-ending grad school program!)

    1. You're right we do have a lot in common :)I'm glad I've found someone who loves the food network usually I assume I'm the only one who watches it.. or at least watches it as much as I do. And your welcome you deserve it your blog is beautiful :)

  3. Well deserved award, and thank you for the nom!
    I had to google what 'Kraft Dinner' was... you only ate macaroni for the first 10 years of your life? What did you do at birthday parties or going out to dinner? o:
    I have similar trouble getting to sleep. I've found herbal insomnia supplements + camomile tea + one hour without technology before bed to make things a lot easier. (: x

    1. Maybe "only" was a little exaggeration haha I was a picky eater so I barely ate anything and probably ate Kraft Dinner 7 times a week!Thinking about it now it sounds so gross eating it that much. Those are some great ideas for improving sleep patterns I think I will give those a try it can be so frusterating! And your welcome you deserve it :)xox
