The Versatile Blogger

Laura from A Few Thoughts From A Rambling Woman was so sweet to give me the Versatile Blogger award a couple of weeks ago! I am just now getting around to participating :-). Thank you Laura!

Official Rules of The Award:
  • Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.
  • Tell your readers seven 7 things about yourself.
  • Give this award to up to 15 recently discovered bloggers.
  • Contact those bloggers and let them in on the exciting news. 

So here it goes...7 random facts about ME!

1. At 5 1/2 months old I was dropped on my head by a 12 year old girl and got a skull fracture (insert joke about me being dumb but I'm gonna toot my own horn and tell you that I graduated Cum Laude in 3 years from Texas A&M University!)

 Look at how safe my carseat was :-)

2. Jon and I are completely obsessed with Frank Sinatra. If we could have dinner with anyone, dead or alive, it would be that man! Or maybe Michael Buble ;-)!

3. I was born in Barrington, IL...a suburb of Chicago and my entire extended family is still up in the area

 Me & Jon at "The Bean" in downtown Chicago

4. I broke my back at age 14 in a stunting accident, 3 compression fractures (T11, T12 and L2 in my lower back). Yes I am OK but my back will always be broken

5. I met my husband while interning at the company he worked for (scandalous huh?)

6. Jon and I pray together before dinner and before bed every night. We share our "rose and thorn" at the end of the day. 


7. I was named after my great grandmother Versa Ruth, but my real name is Ruthie. My middle name is Lynn and I share it with both my mom and dad's older sisters. 


So now it's my turn...I am nominating the ladies below for the Versatile Blogger award!

Happy Blogging!
