An Award!!

Much thanks to to CCC at "It was the best of times, and the worst of times.." for giving me The Versatile Blogger Award!

The rules of the award are as follows:
1.Link back to the person/s that gave you the award.
2.Award other bloggers the award-- 15 recently discovered bloggers.
3.Contact the bloggers that you have awarded to let them know that they have won.
4.Tell 7 things about yourself.

About Me:
  1. Potatoes are my FAVORITE food. In any form. I cannot think of a potato dish that I do not like.
  2. I am horribly shy. In some situations, that is. Most people who know me would refuse to believe that, but it's very true.
  3. When I was 11, I was 100% POSITIVE that I wanted to become a cloistered Carmelite nun. My husband hates that story. ;-)
  4. My husband and I went to our Senior Prom together, married at 20 (OK, I was 2 weeks away from 21), and he graduated college 1 month AFTER we were married (he made it through college in 3.2 years!).
  5. I have a deep-seated fear of clowns. I don't think it's irrational; I mean, John Wayne Gacy... HELLO????
  6. Sunday is my favorite day of the week.
  7. I live in daily dread of having to, one day, get a "real" job. Let's just say I have a problem with authority.
Now for my 15 (in no particular order, so no hurt feelings, PLEASE!) favorite blogs:
  1. 18UnderOneRoof! This mom posts daily (sometimes more than daily) about her daily life as a mother to 16 kids. She is real, funny, real funny, and NORMAL. 'Nuff said!
  2. House Unseen. Life Unscripted. This is a hilarious and awesome blog written by an equally hilarious and awesome lady. She and her husband bought a house over the internet (sight unseen), moved their 4 kids across the country, and began renovating it. She might be my Pioneer Hero!
  3. life of another mama is a another wonderful and REAL blog written by a mom with 6 kids. You should also check out her blog: In the Kitchen with Another Mama. She is talented and giving in so many ways!
  4. MamaJulep is someone who makes me scream and cry with laughter! It's like she told me, not too long ago: if she and I ever hung out together in real life, we would probably get in trouble. A lot of trouble.
  5. You want simplicity, beauty, and organization? Forget Martha, and check out Sarah at Clover Lane. I think I want her to come and redecorate my house. And, my book shelves!
  6. My baby sis!!!! She's over at Live Better and she ROCKS in the kitchen! 
  7. Anne, over at Imprisoned in My Bones makes me want to be a better Catholic every day. God Bless her!
  8. Last, but never least, is my dear, sweet husband's blog, KylePDempseyOnlineInformationDotCom, because he makes me laugh every day and he knows that I don't really find his webshows annoying!
OK, nine blogs is all I have time to post right now because I have Easter baskets to fill, get blessed, Easter clothes to iron, and suitcases to pack!!

Happy Easter!!!


    1. Thanks for the link and the very kind words Mary Kate! A very blessed Easter to you and yours!

    2. Very proud of you and happy for you. Your blog is really awesome, just wish you had more time to post updates.

    3. Thanks Mary Kate...and I do plan on getting trouble with you in some way!!

    4. Thank you so much, Mary Kate! I am going to check out all of those fine ladies and also that one not-lady who you are married to. I do love getting to know moms who make me believe that I might be able to manage more kids someday.

      Happy, happy Easter!!!

    5. Thank you! And thanks for the great blog list! :)
      I love your kid spacing...nice to know someone is doing the same thing somewhere with teens to toddlers.
