I have been given another Blog Award Thank You Sheri

Pin It Now!

Thanks so much to Sheri over at What's in the box? for awarding me my newest blog award The Versatile Blogger. I am so honored to have been chosen by one of the greatest homeschool bloggers around. Thanks so much Sheri.
          Guess the deal is I am to:

*Thank the person who gave it to me
*Tell 7 things about myself

*Select 15 newly discovered blogs (I am not going to do 15 but 5)

*and let them know they received it
Seven things about myself..... Does it have to be something ya'll don't know about me already LOL.

1. I went to school to be an elementary school teacher but never pursued it because my hubby and I made the conscience decision for me to be a SAHM. I always planned to go ahead with my career when my youngest started full time school. I guess I am  following that path just a different road. I am so happy teaching my kids... I wish I would not have let all those people talk me out of homeschooling for so many years and just followed my heart.

2. I was recently selected Swapper of the month for November on http://www.thehomeschoollounge.com/
and last week was the village visitor on http://www.thehomeschoolvillage.com/. I was honored to be the recipient of both.

3. We have moved 8 times in the almost 16 years we have been married and this time it was our final house as we are now Homeowners and lovin it.

4. My hubby and I were married 2x the first time in a chapel full of our closest family and friends and then 3 years later on our anniversary in our then home church (Catholic) by the deacon that baptized myself and all 3 of our kids. I was 8 months pregnant at our "2nd" wedding. I have 2 marriage certificates documenting this. We plan to renew our vows on our 20th anniversary in 3.5 yrs in our new home church.

5. We live on the same street we moved from several years ago on the same side of the street, 2 blocks down.

6. My husband and I went out at the encouragement of a friend and have been together ever since, we only dated 6 months before we were married.

7. I taught myself to sew several years ago and the weekend I learned to sew I made 6 pillows, 2 sets of curtains and 4 purses.

Well there you have it 7 random facts about myself and now it is time to nominate the 5 blogs I am passing this wonderful award onto.

Awww! Thank you so much Jenn!!! I also went to school to be an elementary teacher and am now a SAHM! I love kids but don't think I could deal with them in large groups! LOL Which makes me wonder why I went to school for that! But on the bright side at least I have my prerequisites when I possibly go back! :)
Hope you and your family have a wonderful gobble gobble day!
