The Versatile Blogger Award

I mentioned this morning that I had been tagged by Jen from Running With The Girls for The Versatile Blogger Award. It is something fun that gets passed around the blogging world and helps us learn new things about the people we are connected to through our blogs.

 The rules are this:
  • Thank the person who tagged you. 
  • Share 7 random things about yourself.
  • Tag 15 other people for the award.  
Thanks Jen! You are awesome!

1. I am obsessed with HGTV and DIY. I built our entertainment center and bed headboard from scratch. I paint, drywall, and tile. Now I feed my obsession by working at The Home Depot. If you need help wiring a light or replacing a toilet, I'm your girl!

2. I went to the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England for a semester in college.  During this time I had the opportunity to backpack throughout western Europe and visit Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona, Lyon, Monaco, Rome, Pisa, Venice, and Edinbourgh. I also learned how to rock climb and climbed on the cliffs of Cornwall. 

3. I still hold the Wiscasset High School record in the 300m hurdles. That was over 17 years ago and was also the day I won the Maine Class C State title in the event. I was so crazy about track that I even purchased my own starting blocks and had senior pictures taken with them...what a dork.
The back of my shirt said, "What exactly did you think I was?"
4. My middle name is Alice, as is my mother's and grandmother's. It was my great-grandmother's first name. I hated the name when I was younger and wished my middle name was Marie or Anne. Though today I'm a little sad that I can't pass on the name since we have two boys, their middle names are after their grandfather and great-grandfather, which is just as good!

5. When I was younger I wanted to be a meteorologist when I grew up. Instead I went to school for Mass Communication and haven't used that degree at all. 

6. I have volunteered for Habitat for Humanity twice. Once to participate in a build and more recently to create the Volunteer Orientation video for the 7 Rivers Maine chapter.

7. I play the clarinet. I even went to band camp at least three times...maybe four, I honestly can't remember.

It's going to be hard to tag 15 people since I don't have that many followers yet and a lot of those I do have have either already been tagged or do not have a blog. If you have already been tagged before, I apologize! 

I pick:
1. Morgan @ The Hartastic Blog
2. Mandy @ Caratunk Girl
3. Michelle @ Average Girl Doing Average Things
4. Jen @ Miles, Muscles & Mommyhood  
5. Erin @ Skirts Rock!
6. Theresa @ Barefoot Mama
7. Lisa @ Running.Fitness.Health
8. ...ughhh...I think that's it! I hope I can keep my award! ;-)

If you do follow me and you haven't been tagged I'm so sorry that I missed you. I can't wait to read your posts if you choose to participate!
