I got the Versatile Blogger Award!

I was informed that I received the Versatile Blogger award the other day and have been procrastinating, in between writing, but have finally told myself, Karen you really need to post this" So here it is...

BECAUSE IT IS AWESOME! And I am very honored to have received it.

First The Rules

Everything in life has rules, and the Versatile Blogger award is no different. So here goes.
(Actually this is probably the easiest part!)

1. Thank the award-giver and link back to them in your post.
Thank you Debra. I am honored and surprised, because I wasn't expecting this. :-)
I love following Debra's Blog. She has been very supportive and helpful and always has a kind word and puts up with all my dumb questions. I hope you will follow her also and don't forget to follow her on twitter too!


2. Share 7 things about yourself. Now this is hard! No Laughing!
* When I was little, I would make believe every day that I was sitting at my little table, having tea with Elvis.
* Even though I probably know all of the words to most of the songs, "I'm NOT a Beatles fan" Sorry...
* I'm a big fan of Ozzy and 80's hair bands and Matchbox 20

4. Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know about the award.


  1. Awwwww, thank you! That is very sweet!!!

    I loved --> "* When I was little, I would make believe every day that I was sitting at my little table, having tea with Elvis."

    I TOTALLY love Elvis and when I was a little girl, I used to think I would grow up and marry him!!!

    1. It's funny, because Elvis was only 7 years younger than my mom!

  2. I'm just getting off a 24 hour migraine, signed on and saw this. Thank you. It lifted my spirits way up!

    No Beatles? Okay, you're almost perfect. :)

    1. I know, isn't it terrible! Everyone picks on me about not being a fan of the Beatles, even my sons! My sisters 7 and 9 years older than me, were huge fans, so that's why I know most of the words.
      I hope you are feeling better. Migraines are miserable!

  3. Loved your 7 things! Having tea with Elivis was priceless. :D Now you have given me so many cool blogs to check out later. Yay!

    1. Seems everyone loves my Elvis story. Yes I had a crush on him and yet he was old enough to be my father!

  4. Thanks for the award, and welcome on board the A to Z Challenge! We shall have loads of fun exchanging comments and visits!
