The Versatile Blogger Award

Linda over at alottastitches nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award!!!  Thanks Linda!!!!!

Okay this award requires that I tell you 7 things about me:

1.  I play soccer on a weekly basis and for most of that I'm playing goalie.  I'm not great, but I try really hard and I'm not afraid to dive at peoples feet.  I had a broken thumb as a result a couple years ago.  I didn't think it was broken at first.  I just thought it was really bruised.

After 3 weeks, I went to the doctor and realized, yes, it was broken.

2.  I really really really really love Sarris Chocolate, especially their Creamy Caramel bar.  I eat a lot of them.  Women sell them here at work for their daughters' dance stuff.

3.  Here's my dog George.  I'm really scared now that he's old.  He still acts like a pup sometimes, but he doesn't hear very well anymore.  He's 13.  He still lives at my parents, but I try to go see him as much as possible.

Here's how we used to lay on the couch.  I'm either in high school or college when this photo was taken.  My parents don't have that couch anymore so it might be high school.  I think I just woke up.
4.  I need to learn how to be a selfish crocheter.  I've completed 3 blankets since I started crocheting last February and not one of them is for me.  I started one for myself, but it never seems to be a priority.  I have plenty of ideas for myself, but again, never seem to be a priority.

5.  I don't think my sister, Missy, and I look alike.  What do you think?

I believe this was at a Goo Goo Dolls concert
6.  I am an engineer.  Its hard to turn off the engineer while being creative.  I just end up with finding ways to keep things in order.

7.  Despite being an engineer and slightly OCD with certain things, I still manage to be somewhat of a slob.  I'm trying REALLY HARD at this though.  I think I have made some progress!

Next up the award requires me to nominate 15 other blogs, so here's my list of nominees:

1.    It's Just Jennifer...
2.    L is for Love
3.    Coco Rose Diaries
4.    Teresa Kasner
5.    Baxtersrest
6.    Yarn Round Hook
7.    Crafts from the Cwtch
8.    Gingerbread Girl
9.    22 Threads
10.  Little Tin Bird
11.  MeMe Rose
12.  Home Bird
13.  Tarekices
14.  Country Rose
15.  Lia Creates Pretty Things

Sam :-D


  1. Hi Sam, great post! Sorry about your broken thumb.. ouch! I broke my humerus while riding my Quarterhorse.. the only bone I've broken, but it was a long recovery. Thanks for honoring my blog.
    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. Thank you Sam! That is so nice of you--and above all thank you for reading my blog :) and it's always fun to read more about our friends at blogland...
    I'll try to pass it on quickly, but it's a bit harder to do as I'm back to work and time is shorter...
    Thanks again! :)

  3. You're so very welcome!!

    I look forward to visiting your nominees' blogs. Let's see, I nominated 15, and if they each nominate 15, that's... 225 potential new blogs!! O.K., so this may take awhile. LOL

  4. Hi Sam....thanks so much for nominating me! I shall have to think of some things to write about, it might take a while, I am really rather boring, but I shall have a think!

    Have a super day!
