I'd like to thank my friend Linda from The Quilted Pineapple for giving me the Versatile Blogger Award! Thanks so much Linda! What an honor! This is such a fun award because it involves learning more about blog friends and sharing seven things about myself that you probably don't know. And maybe didn't want to know! LOL!! Well here it goes.....
- I won first place in the Challenge Quilt category of my local quilt show the first time I entered! Needless to say I was shocked when I got the phone call. At first I was speechless, then I asked if they were sure! It turns out that the last lady that won the Challenge Quilt category the year before had won the last fifteen years in a row! It created quite a stir in our quilting community that she had not won, and a newcomer like me had taken that spot. I had no idea all this was going on. I just wanted to try to make my first challenge quilt!

- I have snorkled in caves in Cozmel Mexico. It was very, very cold and dark, but I was determined to do it!
|The brave one was in front of me.|
- I'm a Tar Heel! I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Go Tarheels!
- My favorite shows are Modern Family, House Hunters International, The Next Food Network Star and Deadliest Catch. I'll bet you didn't see that last one coming!
- We are huge fans of Disney Cruise Line! We have traveled all over the Caribbean with Mickey and friends. Castaway Cay is a blast!
|No, this is not our ship, LOL. This is the Flying Dutchman from Pirates of the Caribbean.|
|Shoveling was fun.......for awhile.|
- My favorite foods are thin crust and Chicago style pizza, both made by my DH. Spicy food is another favorite category. I love Mexican food and I put jalapeno peppers on my pizza. Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies are my favorite!
I am happy to pass this award along to some of my blogging friends! Here's how it works:
-Thank the person who gave the award to you and link back to them.
-Be sure to pass the award along to some newly discovered blogging pals.
-Tell us seven things about yourself that we may not know.
Drumroll.....The award goes to......
