Versatile Blogger/Announcement

Thank you to the Modern Art Smock for the Versatile Blogger Award!  I've recently discovered her blog and I like what I see! :)
Now I'm supposed to share 7 interesting facts about myself and pass the award on to 10 other bloggers.

I don't know that I'm super intersting but I'll try!

1. I married my high school sweetheart in 2007.  I'm 24 years old and my husband and I have been together since I was almost 16!  It's kind of a tradition in our families to marry high school sweethearts.  Both our parents dated in high school, both of my husbands siblings are married to their sweethearts, and my brother is now engaged to his!

2. 5 months ago (today!) I gave birth to my son.  I am loving being a mom and doing my best!  Everything has gone really well so far, pregnancy, labor, nursing, figuring out bed times, etc.  I feel very blessed!

3. I am a nature lover!  Not to the point that I want to live in a tree, but I would like to climb one!  I have always enjoyed spending time outside whether it was fishing or gardening.  I live in town but I've tried to create a wildlife habitat in my back yard.  I plant host plants for caterpillars and nectar plants for butterflies so I can attract them to my yard.  I had some help to put in a rain garden last fall full of native plants so I'm excited to see how everything turns out this summer.  I also try to attract birds and I have a "thing" for birds and their nests.  To me, nests symbolize home, family, and a safe place.

4. I am "hyper mobile" which means I am double jointed. I mainly used this skill to gross out my mom by bending my elbow the wrong way when it was my turn to serve as a volleyball player in middle and high school.

5. I have slightly crazy hair and have donated to Locks of Love three times.  I was going for a fourth but cut it off when I was pregnant.  I'm going to try again though!

6. I know how to do the Foxey Lady dance from Wayne's World!  I also have the first half hour of the movie memorized.  My friend and I used to drive around in his car singing Bohemian Rhapsody and headbanging. 

7. I love to read.  I just wish I had more time for it!  I adore reang series of books because I get so attached to the characters.  I hope my son will enjoy reading when he gets older so we can do it together.  He likes to be read to now, I just hope it sticks!

Now I will be passing the award onto the following bloggers (I tried to make sure they hadn't received the award before, hope I didn't miss anyone!):

(Now, post 7 interesting facts about yourself, pass the award on to 10 other bloggers, and thank the blogger who gave it to you and link back to their page!)

Wow, even with so many people already chosen, it was quite a task to narrow it down to 10!

And now, the announcement.  Not a huge deal, just going to be having a giveaway to celebrate passing 200 followers.  I'm thinking about making a "If you make a mistake, make it great" poster, do you think that would interest people?
