Versatile Blogger Award!

I am so excited to share my news with you that I was awarded the Versatile Blogger Award today from Military Spouse House! I am over the moon and very grateful! :-)

Check out the pretty button I get so display now:

The rules of the award are:
1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award, and 
let the giver know you accept the award!
So I am totally excited to follow the rules and share some facts about myself with you as well as getting the chance to pass the Award on to some other awesome bloggers.
7 facts about myself:
1. I am descended from Pirates! Yep, really. My mum loves Family History and found the connection.... but you would have to ask her for the details. lol.
2. I have travelled alot. I am from the UK, lived for a while in the States (Utah), now live in Germany and have seen many other wonderful places. I am truly blessed.
3. I am horribly addicted to a shop called Buttinette here in Germany. It is a big crafting chain and the cause of much despair for my Husband I am sure.... lol.
4. I am the youngest of 5 kids, with a 7 year gap between me and the next eldest. I used to follow my siblings around and try to be like them and thought everyone was supposed to be 'big'. My first week of school I told my teacher I wanted to go home because I was tired of all the 'little' people. lol.
5. My husband served his mission in England and we met through a mutual friend who was having the discussions at the time. We forgot all about each other until over 2 years later when I moved to Germany and attended a big convention. This cute blonde guy came over and remembered me.... and embarressingly I couldn't remember him! lol. Luckily it came back to me in the end and I found the love of my life. (Good job his memory is better than mine!)
6. As a child I was on the radio for a sunday morning program talking about giving presents to animals... and I was on the TV news for a hospital report. I thought I would maybe be famous... but I am still waiting for my oscar award. hmmm....
7. I love Bon Jovi. I have been trying to attend one of his concerts ever since I was about 13. It seems the universe is fighting against Bon Jovi and I ever meeting. Most recently my Husband (then boyfriend) had tickets but I had to go to Paris for work... and this year he is returning to Germany but on one day only... a day I am not able to go. I will hear them sing one day... maybe.
So now we all know a bit more about me... Let's move on to awarding some other awesome bloggers
(in no particular order):
I included some big blogs some smaller... but all are awesome and well worth checking out!
If you were chosen for the award then please let me know if you accept it, and feel free to copy and paste the award button into your Award Post.
Happy Homemaking and have a great day!
