Award Winning Monday

I am one lucky girl. I have the best foodie friends in the world. To start my week, I found out Mamie over at Homegrown Beanes awarded me The Versatile Blogger award. How sweet is that?? Really made my morning. Thanks so much, I appreciate it more than you'll ever know!

The Rules of this Award Are:

1.  Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award.
2.  Share 7 things about yourself
3.  Send it along to 15 other Bloggers and let them know you have awarded them!

Seven Things About Me:

1. When I was 16 years old working at Bob Evans, a man held a gun to my head twice and let me go before taking others hostage.

2. I have a strange addiction to "Soft Lips" chapstick. I have one in my pocket at ALL times.

3. My husband and I have been together over 14 years, married for 8. He was my one and only boyfriend.

4. When I was little, I had VERY long hair. At it's longest, it fell to the floor and reached 2 feet behind me.

5. When I was 4 months pregnant w/ Alex, I had a dream it would be boy. We didn't want to know the sex, but I always knew I was having a son.

6. My Dad named me. He told my mom while they were dating, "We will have a daughter and her name will be Krista Renae. Four years later, he got his wish.

7. I am an "ER" junkie. I saw every episode, when 1st aired. For 14 years, I never missed. Not one:)

I'm Awarding These 15 Blogs:

Congrats to all of you. I enjoy your blogs so much. There are so many blogs I read daily, choosing 15 was REALLY hard. So for those not on the list....please know I love you too!

I always knew we had weird connections to each other. When my Mom was pregnant with me, a gun was pointed at her belly while the guy robbed the diner she was at with my aunt. I know you must've been so scared! My Mom still talks about it. Congrats on all the awards! They are well deserved!!!
thank you for passing one on to me - you are the sweetest!

Thank you SO much for passing this on to me!!
I am little freaked out about the hold up. We were once car jacked in our neighborhood. They just had a baseball bat but we got out. Just my husband and i but I will never forget it. They dumped the car a mile away....
Anyhow, thank you SO much! I, too, watched EVERY episode of ER. I still cry a little when I think of Dr. Green dying :(
I loved this post and the insight into you!
