I've been awarded! :)

I'm finally taking the time to get to this post!!  I was recently (um...sort of recently!) :} awarded with the Versatile Blogger Award!  Thanks, everyone!  I'm honored! :)

When you are awarded, there are 6 things you're supposed to do:

1.  In a post on your blog, nominate 4 fellow bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.

2.  In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award.

3.  In the same post, thank the blogger (or bloggers!) who nominated you with a link back to their blog(s).

4.  In the same post, include 7 random pieces of information about you.

5.  In the same post, include this set of rules.

6.  Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination with a comment on their blog.

I'm pretty late getting to this, so if I nominate you and you've already been awarded and participated, you don't have to do it again! ;)

So, here goes!

Here are the bloggers I nominate for the Versatile Blogger Award:

1.  Mia from Mia's Musings:  http://themusingsofmia.blogspot.com/

2. Miss Elizabeth Bennet from Elegance of Fashion:  http://elegance-of-fashion.blogspot.com/  (By the way, Miss Bennet, I'm so sorry that I never did the post for The Sweetest Blogger award you gave me.  The timing  just didn't work out for me.  Thank you so much for the nomination, though!) :}

3.  Elaine from Musings of an Old-Fashioned Young Woman:  http://elaine-allthingsoldfashioned.blogspot.com/ (Have fun, Elaine!  I've really enjoyed your posts so far!) :)

4.  Jen from Dolls and Nachos:  http://dollsandnachos.blogspot.com/ 

And here is the Versatile Blogger Award that I'm supposed to include:

I'd like to thank  Nora and Maple from The Doll Wardrobe ( http://thedollwardrobe.blogspot.com/ ), Phoebe from Love That Doll ( http://lovethatdoll.blogspot.com/ ), and...oh dear...Jessie?  Were you the third one?  If so, I can't seem to find a link to your blog.  Sorry!  You can include it in the comments if you'd like.  If I got my last nomination wrong, feel free to correct me!  (Yikes...how embarrassing!  Obviously I've waited a little long to respond to this!) :{

Okay, so now it's on to the 7 random facts about me.

1.  I've been doing a lot of rearranging in my doll rooms lately.  My dad is actually in the middle of making me a more permanent set of doll rooms that will stack on top of each other (I'd like to condense to one side of the bedroom), so I've been planning out which dolls will be roomies and what furniture they'll use. :D

2.  I have my fourth Weight Watchers meeting tomorrow morning.  My goal is to hit 5 lbs total lost!!  (I'm at 3.8 so far.)

3.  I'm singing in a trio on Sunday morning for our church Easter program.  The name of the song we're singing is called "Victory is Won", and it has some lovely three-part harmony that's really fun to sing!  

4.  I will celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary on June 29th. :D  We're planning on getting a sitter for the kids, going out to eat, and watching Disney Pixar's "Brave" in the theater.

5.  I have the songs from "Piglet's Big Movie" stuck in my head because that has been my 4 year old's movie choice every day for the past week! :}

6.  I still despise broccoli.

7.  I've been really struggling with making the time for my personal devotions lately.  I'm planning on reading through the book of John again for my devotions, starting tomorrow, using the Bible Knowledge Commentary to help me dig a little deeper. :)

Thanks so much, everyone!  This was fun, and amazingly easy once I just made myself sit down and do it. ;)

Good post .. I know what you mean about struggling with devotions, been there. Right now I am going through Isaiah and I make myself do it before I am allowed to do computer, but sometimes I rush through it.

Kewl facts, keep posting as you have time, we miss you ..

Thanks, TracAn! :) I've done the no computer until devotions rule before, and it worked very well. I'm going to have to try that again! And I must confess that I've been known to rush through my devotions, too, especially when there's something else I'm interested in doing. I really want to be better about that!

I have several posts that I was able to complete yesterday scheduled to post, so you'll be hearing a bit from me in the next couple of weeks! :)

Hehe...your 4-year-old sounds a lot like my little brother - he will repeatedly watch "Despicable Me" and the all three "Toy Story movies...it's gotten to the point where he can recite whole monologues from those films and he's still pretty young! ;)

Happy (two-and-a-half months early) 10th anniversary this year! Ah...I'm so excited for "Brave"! All the girls/women on my street are already plotting a girls' night to go see it the moment it comes out. :)

Have a great week!

Thanks, Claire! :) Yep, there's something about that age, I think. ;) Our usual movies are Cinderella, Piglet's Big Movie, The Sound of Music, and The Aristocats. ;)

I'm really excited to see "Brave", too. :) It's very obliging of Disney and Pixar to release a movie every year around our anniversary! ;)

I actually didn't nominate you... I think I got to four people before I thought of you! I definitely would have though. :) My linky is americangirlphotographer.blogspot.com, since you were wondering. :)

beastsbelle said...

Thanks for the clarification, Jessie. Yikes, who was that? Or am I just going senile in my old age? ;)

Anyway, thanks for the link to your blog. :)
