The Versatile Blogger

I was thrilled the other day when I was reading the "MigrainePuppet" and saw that she had nominated me for this blogger award!  How exciting!  I am so new to this world of blogging, I wasn't sure if people were really even reading my posts (other than the few comments I've received).  I started writing this kind of as a therapy to me, after being inspired by reading other blogs.  I was amazed how many people suffered from migraines and other chronic illnesses and wrote about it.  It's very comforting to know you're not alone.  I was a little skeptical of having other people read my thoughts and learning such personal things about me...but I'm over that! 

So I guess there are rules to follow once one receives this lovely here goes...

Rule #1:  Thank the person who gave you your award.

To my new blogger/migraine pal, the MigrainePuppet, I thank you very much for this award.  I will try my hardest to come up with new and versatile things to blog about!  So keep reading! =)

Rule #2:  Share seven things about yourself:

1. I have been a labor & delivery nurse for 4 years.  I recently completed the task of obtaining my RNC, which is a specific certification in obstertrics.  I am cross trained in labor, "catching babies", NICU holding, and scrubbing in on cesarean sections.  I am also part of our Perinatal Loss Program.

2. I have 3 siblings.  An identical twin sister, a younger sister and a younger brother.  My mother and all of us girls are RN's.  My twin sister even works on the same unit as I do!

3. I danced for most of my childhood (tap, jazz and ballet).

4.  I wish I could sing!  I sing in the car....but I can't carry a tune to save my life!

5.  I am totally in love with my dogs!  They are both Maltese.  Milo (male) is a year and Maisy (girl) is 10 mths.

6.  I am obsessed with Chelsea Handler!  I love her show, her books and I follow her on Twitter.  I even refer to her by her first name.  She's my "girl crush" I guess.

7.  I am like the paparazzi.  I take pictures ALL the time.  My boys and Jesse get SO annoyed with me!

Rule #3:  Pass the award on to bloggers you think are fantastic:

There are sooo many more I love and read, but those are a few of my favs!

Rule #4:  Contact the bloggers to let them know they've been nominated.
