I'm Versatile, too?

Patty at Reasons for Chocolate bestowed this award on me last week.  I'm finally getting around to acknowledging it due to not being on my usual computer.  Patty is another Catholic mom who just happens to be from a large family. If you get a chance, go visit and look around her blog.  She's a really busy mom, and she's pretty cool, too!

The rules for this award are:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award...Thanks a bunch, Patty!

2.  List 7 things that people may not know about you...
Oh, gee.  What haven't I told?  I'm such an open book!  I'm going to cheat and just pick a few things I included on 100 Things About Me:

  1. I'm addicted to the "Real Housewives"...especially New Jersey.  (Caroline could be my best friend!)
  2. I cry during some commercials.
  3. I can't stand to see misspelled words, specifically when people use "loose" for "lose" and "too" for "to".
  4. People ending sentences with prepositions are also a major pet peeve!  Really.  You don't have to add "at" when asking, "Where are you?"
  5. I've never had my hair longer than shoulder-length.
  6. I had my first pedicure at the beginning of the summer...and will get my second in a few days.
  7. I yell at sporting events...even if I don't fully understand the game...even if I'm watching it on tv.
3. Pass it on to other bloggers who deserve the award.    So here is my list:

   Once again, this is so very hard.  My list of favorite blogs is growing...wish I could make that a full time job!  Okay, so here are a few:

Tina:  A View from a Hill (yes, there's that nepotism again!)
Amy:  Milk Breath and Margaritas (I'm so glad she's back!)
Sweet Tea  (She's a BLAST!)
Amy:  All Things A Ro  (Get ready to laugh!)
AuburnChick's Weblog  (This chick's just amazing!)
Mrs. E:  Easy Street (She may be the most versatile  blogger I know!)
Candace:  Mi chiamo Candace (Another new blogging friend!)

Thanks again, Patty!  I hope everybody will have time to visit these awesome blogs!


  1. Congratulations. I yell at the TV too and cry at some commercials.

  2. Aaw, thanks for thinking of me!
    You are a sweet friend! Candace

  3. I ALWAYS cry while watching Home Improvement. My kids don't and then they'll just look at me funny. I tell that they are made of stone inside LOL

    What I like about the blogger awards are the lists of awesome bloggers that are highlighted...ones I wouldn't know existed unless someone spoke of them. Thanks for sharing all those blogs!

  4. cong. on your award. The only commercial that makes me sad deals with the animals in shelters. Is there a specific commercial?have a good Sunday.

  5. Hi Mary! Congrats on your award!
    One Tv commercial that I just can't watch because it tears my heart out is the one about abandoned dogs and cats where they play Sarah McGlaughlin's *sp* "In the Arms of the Angels". Oh my word!!! what a tear-jerker of a commercial!
    AND I don't necessarily yell at the TV but I do make comments, like at America's Got Talent and when they passed some of the dumbest, craziest acts through and sent really talented people home! Oh my word!!!
    My husband was in bed reading and told me to let it go! LOL

  6. Oh Mary, you are SO KIND!!!!!! Muah!!!!

    Just so you know, misspelled words drive me crazy too! So do grammatical errors, which I try desperately to catch before I post each day.

  7. You know, I meant to type that I cry during Extreme Home Makeover...not Home Improvement...ugh!

  8. @ Patty: I knew what you meant! I've had to steer clear of that show...I get way too emotionally attached to the families in that short amount of time!

  9. I love it! Enjoy the pedicure. Jealous here. :)
