The Versatile Blogger Award

Reagan, of Miss Remmer's Review, kindly passed along The Versatile Blogger award to me. Thanks, Reagan! Have you got any great ideas for books high school freshmen should read? Reagan is going to be a freshman teacher this fall. It's great to see how passionate she is about what she's going to be doing!

This award requires me to tell you seven things about myself. Hmm...are there even seven things about myself that I haven't already told you? Let's give this a shot:

1. In 1976 my parents invited a few neighbors over for breakfast on the Fourth of July to celebrate the bicentennial of the United States. Tomorrow we'll be joining a much larger group of their neighbors as they celebrate not only the Fourth of July but the 35th year of the breakfast.

2. I have extremely eclectic musical tastes--my two favorite stations on the radio are the classical music station and the alternative rock station.

3. I love old children's books.

4. I'm a control freak. It's why none of my kids know how to do the laundry yet.

5. I refuse to answer the phone if I don't know who's calling. Thank you caller i.d.!

6. My boys used to have toads for pets. I had to drive 8 miles to buy them crickets to eat after it got too cold for crickets to be in my yard. Is that when you know you might be spoiling your kids?

7. I used to work for Hallmark but I'm terrible about remembering to send cards on special occasions.

I'm passing this along to

  1. I have a friend who works for Hallmark; in fact, she is a store manager. She is the perfect person for this job as she has been decorating her house for 15 years and can finally decorate a store instead. I, too, love old children's books. However, I also love new children's books, so I suppose we have to say I love all children's books. They are the reason I love, well.....books!!

  2. Wow... you definitely spoil your kids :)
    I love that :)

    Thanks for passing this on to me :)

  3. Congratulations on your versatile blogger award and have a great
    4th of July breakfast! Also nice to know more about you!

  4. Love your breakfast tradition!! How fun!! (and I'm a control freak too... it's why Brad doesn't know how to do anything in the house!! lol)

  5. Awww.. thank you so much!! And congratulations to you too!!

  6. Congratulations, an award well-deserved. :)

  7. Congratulations on your award, Lisa! Loved the 7 things about's very cool that this 4th of July you are also celebrating the 35th year of your neighborhood breakfast! I think traditions like that are awesome.

    I'm the same way with the phone....why else do we have caller id & voice mail?!

    I admit I cracked up when I read that you used to work for Hallmark but you don't remember to send cards on special occasions, classic! LOL

    Great post!
