The Versatile Blogger Award

named me for a Versatile Blogger Award. Thanks so much, Shandy! (Be sure to check out her site--her page banner alone will have you hooked!)

To keep the award going, I'm bestowing it on 15 other bloggers who really are a joy to follow. All you have to do to accept the award is:
  1. Thank the person who gave you the award. 
  2. Share 7 things about you.
  3. Nominate 15 other bloggers.
  4. Alert your nominees that they have been awarded.
I posted 10 things about myself when I accepted the Honest Scraps award, and here are some more interesting tidbits about this Queens mama:
  1. I used to like to read fantasy novels when I was younger, mostly for the magical love stories (I would fancy myself a damsel in distress.) I've just started to get back into these kinds of books and I'm really enjoying them. Right now I'm reading 36棋牌, which is about political intrigue and trained pleasure-givers (ok, they are fancy prostitutes). Its super sexy!
  2. Because of said fantasy novel fetish, I wanted to name my future daughter Gwenivere growing up. Yeah... not planing to do that anymore.
  3. I'm really good at connecting AV equipment, so much so that my husband makes me set up our TV, DVD player, etc! 
  4. I used to do flips off my parents diving board, until I got old enough and tall enough to become afraid of breaking my head open.
  5. The first time I went skiiing, I was so terrified that I took off my skis and walked down the mountain. They next time (many years after the first), I took a lesson first and was a natural! My husband, on the other hand, didn't fare so well and wanted to throw me off the mountain.
  6. One of my favorite pregnancy snacks was a peanut butter, honey and Honey Bunches of Oats sandwich.
  7. Being a stay at 36棋牌 mom has renewed by love of Days of Our Lives, talk shows and televised court shows.
My 15 nominated blogs are , , , , , , , , , , , , , , and New to Mom.

These are all among bloggers that I love to read and I hope you'll enjoy stopping by their blogs as well. Have a happy Thursday!

My very first blog award! (10 honest scraps about me)

Sara over at is awesome and sent me my very first blog award! Check her blog out, not just because she awarded me, but because she writes some really great, funny stuff. (I really loved especially her spot-on posts about the conflicting feelings that go along with breastfeeding.) Oh, and her son is adorable!


To accept this award, I must post 10 "honest scraps" about myself and nominate 5 bloggers to do the same to receive their own award. It really is a great way to get to know each other better!

Here we go:
  1. I am serious about karaoke and will belt out a song like I'm on American Idol. I will secretly cry inside if someone sings offkey (but I will appreciate their effort none-the-less!) 
  2. I studied opera for fun in college. It was an interesting change of pace from karaoke!
  3. I speak Italian but did not learn it from my parents, who speak a Sicilian dialect. I took Italian language classes in school for 9 years.
  4. I love love love circus peanuts candy. 
  5. I am really afraid of flying. My husband, whose father is a retired pilot, is not afraid and doesn't understand how I could be. He buys me above mentioned circus peanuts before flights to make me feel better. I wish they were laced with tranquilizers. 
  6. I like watching tween shows like Hannah Montana and That's So Raven. Perhaps I feel like I'm still 16 at heart. 
  7. I was brought up to be really supersticious. Even though I try hard not to, I can't help getting twitchy when people put shoes on tables, turn bread upside down, give me the malocchio (evil eye), etc. 
  8. I love country music. 
  9. I have lived in New York State my entire life (with a couple month foray into Weeeeeeeeehawken, NJ). My husband has lived in Dubai, Germany, Ireland, New York, Texas and Florida. 
  10. I am a fan of the Shandy (beer + sprite) and will order them in bars even if people think I am a weeny because of it! :) 
Hope you don't think I'm too strange now! Now, I nominate the following bloggers at the following great sites to post their 10 honest scraps and collect their reward:
Can't wait to read your 10 honest scraps!
