The Liebster & Versatile Blogger Awards!

So, things have been ridiculously hectic lately; (Excuse me as I vent through my "Excuses") 

Between Work, My Man's Birthday this week, (Why are boys so difficult to buy gifts for?! That's another post, another time) Halloween, Multiple Insurance Meetings...The list goes on... and I'm not even one of you Amazing Wife/Mother/DIY blogger ladies out there! God help me when that day arrives.


My Point is, I'm sorry I've been MIA yet again these past few days. 
Still.. the blogging world goes on, and my Saturday Morning was MADE when I woke up to an email from the lovely KRISTINE telling me she "Nominated" me for the Liebster/Versatile Blogging Award. 
YAY Me.. and BIG YAY for Kristine! 
You know what this means... Hop on over to her adorable site! You will Not be disappointed.

(The name alone stole my heart from the first moment I came across it)
