The Versatile Blogger Award

Wow, Kirby and I are beginning to feel like we must be doing something right!  We have received the Versatile Blogger Award from Oscar the Pooch: A Miniature Schnauzer, Erin of Freedom To Bark, Mary of Roxy the Traveling Dog, and Katie from The Pet Lady's Blog.

Our blog has really taken on a life of its own.  It all started because I wanted to share my newfound knowledge of good versus bad nutrition for dogs.  I started writing about life with Kirby, the greatest dog ever, and one thing just seemed to lead to another.  Writer's block?  Ha!  I have pages of topics I want to write about.  I keep saying I'll only post on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday but there's so much information I want to share that sometimes I can't force myself to wait.  Every morning I have to hit the publish button to share a new post but I am working on restraint!  We have also been fortunate enough to begin receiving products to review which is awesome since I am always looking for the best of the best for Kirbs and our readers.  And of course there's the barkery.  I never imagined how much joy and excitement I would feel creating new recipes for doggie cookies and cakes. 

Maybe I am a versatile blogger after all!  Now that I've patted myself on the back quite enough I can't even begin to tell you how much it means to me to know other bloggers are actually reading my posts, especially bloggers I admire as well!  You really think I have potential?  I'm honored.

The rules for accepting the Versatile Blogger Award are to share seven facts about ourselves and then pass the award on to fifteen new, or newly discovered, bloggers.  I love learning more about fellow bloggers, not so much about sharing myself, but rules are rules.  So here are seven easy pieces of me...

1.  I was born in Hollywood, Florida.  I have lived in Maine, Kansas, Texas, Georgia, and now Mississippi.

2.  I went to college when my children were preteens and earned a B.A with a paralegal major and business administration minor.

3.  I worked as a Paralegal for eight years mostly land work and divorces.

4.  I love pop music - Adele, Pink, Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, Maroon 5, to name a few.

5.  I like country music - Carrie Underwood, Sugarland,

6.  I am addicted to All My Children.  Don't hate me but I adore Greenlee!

7.  I cried when Elvis died and I cried when Princess Diana died.

The next step is to pass the award on to fifteen new, or newly discovered, bloggers whom I consider to be quite versatile.  This took some time since I have been in a rut reading just the blogs I'm used to reading.  I had to search for new blogs that caught my attention making me want to read more.  So some of these are brand new to me!  Check them out and see if you agree with my choices!
