Versatile Blogger Award

I was just catching up on my blog reading and noticed Allison at Novice Life gave me a Versatile Blogger Award. Thanks, Allison! I need to come up with 7 random facts about me, then pass the award on to 15 other people. 15?! Whew. I'm not sure I can come up with that many people, because I don't have much time for blog reading lately, but I can come up with a few!

7 Random Things About Me:

1. I once found a turkey (alive and well) in the middle of the road. She wouldn't move, so I put her in my car and took her home, and my parents didn't mind (I was in high school). I later found out the people posted a sign for the missing turkey, so I returned her.

2. I swear I'm not making this up, but I also once found a goat in the middle of the road when I was visiting my sister in NC. I had a car full of dogs, so I couldn't bring her home but I called animal control and waited until they got there. I never did find out what happened to the goat.

3. My sister and I were at the airport (circa 1998) and I spied Newt Gingrich in the baggage claim line. I went up to him and asked if we could get a picture with him, and he said ok but after he got his luggage. We still have the pictures. He was pretty nice...probably because he was surprised 2 teenaged girls knew who he was.

4. And one time I saw Wolf Blitzer in the airport food court, but this time I couldn't remember his name so I didn't get a picture with him. I guess that's what happens when you live relatively close to D.C.....

5. When we got our first chickens ever, I spent hours out there sitting with them. I tried to dress up like a chicken so they wouldn't be afraid of me. I looked for all brown clothes and a dishwashing glove, but couldn't find them so I gave up. I was only 11, give me a break!

6. When I was around 8 or so, I stole a hot glue stick from Joanne Fabrics. It was just one single hot glue stick, and I took it because my sister said it was glue but I couldn't figure out how it worked. I didn't know it went in a gun! My sister ratted me out and my parents gave me a looooooong lecture that scarred me for life and I've never stolen anything since!

7. I watch Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 on MTV. I hate MTV, but I can't help it. Somehow I started watching Teen Mom when I was home from work one day, and I got hooked. Guilty pleasure....and don't tell anyone!

So, there ya go. 7 random facts you wish you never knew! So now I'll pass the award to a few of my favorite blogs:

The Stockpot
Squash Blossom Farm
Our Little Farm
Life in a Little Red Farmhouse
Mainly Ewes

You have an amazing ability to find animals near the road! :) Thanks for passing the award to me! I'll work on it in the next few days. :)

What cute and sweet random things! I love that you wanted to dress like a chicken for those babies!! That's why you are our own Animal Whisperer. Don't forget that your thievery started when you were two years old! You had a new purse and while at the store you tried to find things to put into it! So cute! You had no idea it was wrong... You've always kept us laughing Katie Boo! Love you muches, Momma
