Versatile Me?

Third time's the charm right?  I have been awarded this in the last few months and didn't share not because I wasn't grateful or because I didn't have great bloggers to share, I think I'm just lazy.  I appreciate that there are lovely people out there that enjoy my blog and here they are:


The three lovely bloggers that gave it to me:

1. Amberr Meadows of Like a Bump on a Blog



Now being that I am overdue on sharing seven things about me, I will share 10 - I know you can't hold your excitement to learn things about me but even more exciting is that I will also be sharing 30 bloggers that I think are great instead of 15 like the rules state.  

Ten Things About Me:

  1. I am still trying to find my niche.  I know obvious one right?  I'm really okay with this as I never like to do what I'm told and if I never have one, well it wouldn't surprise me.
  2. I picked my daughter's name when I was in sixth grade.  I had a friend in grade school who had a younger sister named Rhiannon and I fell in love deciding right there that I would name my daughter the same when and if I had one.
  3. My Birthday is St. Patrick's Day. I love that everyone celebrates with me! I think the only reason my name isn't Pat is because my mother's name is Pat due to the fact that her birthday is the day after St. Patrick's Day - she had me for her 21st birthday, lucky girl.
  4. I have never had an anxiety attack.  
  5. My very first job lasted all of a week.  True story and probably a post in itself - I was hired at DQ and exploded a shake.  I laughed when another employee slipped and fell in the mess - I was fired the next day after they made me do busy work cleaning windows.  I went on to be a manager at Baskin Robbins and had no problems with the shakes there.
  6. I am NOT a girly girl. Probably the farthest from it but I'm not a Tomboy either. I think I have a total of 10 pair of shoes, (only one of which is heels) I don't wear make-up or jewelry often, I couldn't coordinate an outfit to save my life, and I will never belong to a "Mom Club" or anything of the sort.
  7. I was a Lollipop Kid in High School.  We did the Wizard of Oz and I met the height requirements.  I was also a witch who rode a vacuum in the same play. One of my fondest memories of high school.
  8. I offend people without even trying.  I'm not sure how but it happens all the time, maybe it's because I'm sarcastic - I've lost friends over it.
  9. I have one breast implant.  This one really is a post in itself and I'm concerned that one day I will have a perky one and one that hangs low, this has already started and I'm not sure what to do about it.  Gravity is not my friend.
  10. My maiden name is MacDonald.  I know, laugh if you must - my kids think it's hilarious and they didn't believe me at first.  Don't mistake it for the restaurant, it's more like the farmer.

Bloggers I can't get enough of that you will love if you don't already:


If you care to share this award, the official rules are for you to share and link back to the person who gave it to you, SEVEN things about yourself and 15 bloggers you think others will enjoy.  I did more because I was way overdue and you know, I'm versatile! 


Have fun spreading the love!

As I just tweeted, YOU ROCK, AMY! Thanks so much. It means a ton both coming from you and to be in such great company. I totally understand the procrastination on posting these awards. No worries, we're all busy. I just posted a Wordless Wednesday post on a Tuesday because I know I'll be too busy to do it tomorrow. ;) Have a SUPER day!

Good Day Regular People said...

You are so sweet. Thank you.

I had a wonderful time with you at BBC/Chi, and was so glad to meet you.

I don't think you offend>>>you have a great smile, and a great sense of humor.

Thank you for thinking of me..I LOVE THAT.

coffeelovinmom said...

Sometimes I think I might be more male than female...seriously

coffeelovinmom said...

It's such a bad story I regret and would not recommend but I was in HS when I had the surgery...working on a post soon!

coffeelovinmom said...

The job is much funnier than the implant story...both are embarassing but that's why you want to know right? Share or not, I won't be easily offended if you decide to be lazy!

coffeelovinmom said...

I swear my body does not like me, never has never will...story will follow now that I've peaked an interest..

coffeelovinmom said...

I totally dig you and your stories! Glad we met!

coffeelovinmom said...

You are one of about 5 boy blogs I read. Good job on getting your WW post out early!

coffeelovinmom said...

People are offended because I don't answer the phone - proof I don't even try!
YOU are great! I'm so glad we connected!

buriedwithchildren said...

You are awesome. :-)

Lady Estrogen said...

Thanks so much, hun!
Offending people without even trying is a talent - for sure :)

SoberJulie said...

Hey thanks so much! The feeling is defininately mutual. I gotta know the boob 411 too.

MamaRiceCake said...

No wonder we're friends! I can relate to so many things on your list! I LOVE that you were a vacuum cleaner riding witch... that's freakin' RAD.
Thanks for sharing the love! MWAH!
And fer realz... I wanna hear about the implant story. I have two... I've actually wondered what would happen if I only had one. Enlighten me.
Also... St. Patty's Day... best holiday to have a birthday on EVER! I love it!

Kimberly said...

Thanks for including me! Now I'll have to think of my list of things y'all don't know about me! ;)

I'm curious about the implant story, if you're willing to share.

dontspeakwhinese said...

Thanks so much for including me, dollface!! This just proves why I freaking adore you so much!!!

Oh the topic of non-level boobies.. after nursing two kids, having a horrible infection in one and then trying to balance out being able to lactate in both (took months to even out) and having one giant boob... yeah, I feel ya on that. My left boob is my favorite and the right one is its unruly sister that refuses to look in the proper direction.

CoffeeLovinMom said...

So are you - I love your blog more every time I visit!

CoffeeLovinMom said...

I don't know about talent...it comes too easy sometimes!

CoffeeLovinMom said...

I never have to buy a drink if I go out on my birthday - I just tell people it's my day and they are more than willing to buy! I think if I had to do over again, I would keep my uneven boobs to begin with!

CoffeeLovinMom said...

You are welcome! I can't wait for your list - I am working on the implant post..

CoffeeLovinMom said...

I think I've heard you say that before for some reason...I always like to include you! My left is the favorite and the real one that can actually feel sensation so maybe i should have waited for them to even out!

CoffeeLovinMom said...

Trust I am working on that post and you are welcome!

dontspeakwhinese said...

I think we talked about favoring one boobie over another before LOL I'm still waiting for mine to even out.. and its been years!! LOL

She'sWrite said...

Wow! What a great post, thanks for sharing so much about yourself *and* for giving me some love! :)

Raylene said...

Awwww.... thanks so much for including me! That's awesome!! You totally rock, and I'm totally humbled!

Lady Bren said...

Miss Donna said...

me, you & #8...what are we gonna do?! this was really fun. every time you participate in one of these i found out how much we have in common. haven't decided yet if i'm gonna take you up on posting my own, but you best believe i'm shouting you out if i do!

truly grateful to be on your "can't get enough of" list...so happy the internets brought us together. continue to be your unique self..to hell with those who get offended.

coffeelovinmom said...

You know why I love you - if it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have been places and met so many cool peeps - how can I not love a girl with Coffee in her name??

coffeelovinmom said...

Raylene, I know I haven't known you long but I have to say you are so genuinely full of energy, people can't help but be drawn to your enthusiasm (I know I can't anyway!)..I love your weirdness and thank you for permission - It's okay to be weird is fastly becoming one of my favorite blogs!

coffeelovinmom said...

You rock! Every time I visit your blog I like you more and more..sorry about TMI on the boobie thing

coffeelovinmom said...

Seriously glad I was in that place at that time you needed a question answered - you know how I feel and can't wait for that day we eventually meet...I just know there will come a day I will be bragging about my now famous friend!
