Our First Award!

We are quite flattered as one of my (Kris) favorite blogs, Blue Cotton Memory has given us our first blogging award.  It is the Versatile Blogger Award.  We'd like to say thanks and pass it along.

The Rules:
1. Thank the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic!
4. Contact the bloggers you’ve picked and let them know about the award.

7 things about Jill
1. I find small children incredibly frustrating
2. I am a born storyteller
3. I drink tea first, then coffee in the mornings.
4. I love Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman
5. I've always been terrified of having a daughter, but so far I love having one.
6. I always underestimate the amount of time things will take, consequently
7. I'm frequently late. 

7 things about Kris
1. I'm not nearly as organized as most people believe me to be (my husband will attest to that)
2. Even though I always wanted to have 4 kids, I've known since I was a little girl that I would have  two boys and a girl (and that's what I do have)
3. I enjoy Dylan Moran's stand-up, my favorite quote from him is:  ''you end up sitting in front of the television watching these programmes eating bread from the bag... dipping it in anything runnier than bread'' - he's funny, look him up on YouTube sometime
4. My dad always said I would be a teacher when I grew up, I fought that idea for a long time, but then I fell in love with it
5. I have lived on both sides of Canada and somewhere in the middle
6. If I could invent something fantastic it would be a working teleporter
7. Nothing says comfort quite like a good cup of tea

15 blogs we love
I know that the award said 'new to us', but some of these we've been reading for a little too long to be 'new'

If you haven't visited any of these blogs before, take a look, they are always enjoyable to read.


  1. Congratulations on your award! And thanks for passing it along to me! I also appreciate the nice comment you left on my blog. Thank you so much!

  2. Congratulations! That is great! Thank you so much for sharing it with me :) That means a lot. You are one of my favorite reading stops along the road you know!

  3. What great lists! I wasn't late until my 5 son was born. And I always wanted a lot of boys and one girl - I got the bunch of boys but what I want to know is "where is my girl?"

  4. thank you so much for the award. I love Dylan Moran too. Have you ever watched Black Books? He's the star of it. I think there are only 3 seasons but it's hilarious!

  5. Congrats on the award! A thought, you guys should create a button for your blog. I've love to be able to add one to my blog so that others could easily find you!
