I would like to give a big thank you to Cathy of Big Lake Quilter for honoring me with The Versatile Blogger Award!!  Thanks Cathy!!

There are a few rules when receiving this award:
Thank the person that gave you this award and link back to them.

Pass along the award to other newly discovered blogging pals.

Tell 7 things about yourself that others may not know about you.  Why 7???  I have no idea, but here goes…It’s really hard to think of 7 things when you are on the spot! LOL!

1.  My all time favorite food is the donut!!  I’ve never met a donut I didn’t like!  I swear I could eat a dozen!!  All I can say is that it’s a good thing I never worked at a bakery!!  Whenever I go on vacation or visit some place, I usually have to try the local bakery.

Clearly it runs in the family.

2.  I love the South.  I hope to one day live there.  I’m pretty sure I’m a Southern Belle at heart.  Our favorite place to vacation is Tennessee.  Although Hawaii runs a close second.  πŸ™‚

Along the river in Gatlinburg, TN.

3.  I’m not a morning person.  No pic needed.

4.  I love to garden!  Vegetable and flower gardening.  I get a little obsessed about weeding.  I do it every morning in the summer.  Actually, Scott plants the garden and I maintain it.

 Our very first garden.

5.  I ran my first 5K last summer with my sister, Kristin.  She talked me into doing it and we ran it together.  It was a great experience and sense of accomplishment because the only running I had ever done was running around the house when the girls were babies!!

6.  I don’t like winter or the snow, but you may have kind of guessed that.  My neighbors say that I hibernate from Dec. until March because they never see me!

7.  I started loving Country Music about 7 years ago.  I’m a huge Keith Urban fan!!!  HUGE!!  I see him in concert every year!  This summer I’m going twice!  I can’t wait.  Kristin is usually my partner in crime.  A few years ago when we went, I was tossed a drumstick!!  Good times.

Now there’s my 7 things.  Now I will pass along this little award…

Desley – Addicted To Quilts
