Our First Award – The Versatile Blogger

Thank you so much to Amanda at Mother of Ambition who kindly awarded Shannon Setter – writer for Motivated Moms Club with this…

The Versatile Blogger
Hip hip hooray! This is the first award for Motivated Moms Club! I am very blessed and grateful to have received this award. It is truly inspiring and motivating.

Thank you again, Amanda at Mother Of Ambition for this honor! You are the best.

The rules of the award are as follows:

  1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post.
  2. Tell us seven things about yourself that others may or may not know.
  3. Award fifteen recently discovered new bloggers.

After much thought, I was able to come up with 7 things about me that you may not know… (leaning more towards the do not know but interesting tidbits about me).

7 things about me that you may not know about me

  1. I know how to (and do) replace the brakes and spark plugs on my truck.
  2. I love target shooting & deer hunting (for food, not for sport) with my Tikka T3 Lite 30-06 and Trijicon Scope (by far, my favorite scope ever)!
  3. I tend to go a bit overboard on the explosives on Fourth of July – choreographing, setting up, and igniting the fireworks.
  4. Driving is very relaxing and gives me time for creative thinking.
  5. I was a band geek in school…yes, that also included marching band as well. I’ve played the flute since I was 9 years old.
  6. Of all the people I have lost in my lifetime, I miss my grandmother the most.
  7. I designed and built a 400 square foot patio – fire-pit included, along with a retaining wall and built-in stairs last year with the help of my husband – the pavers weighed 80 pounds each!

I have searched high and low – in no particular order, for 15 bloggers that I would like to award. I hope this award not only inspires each of you, but also motivates you on continuing your hard work. Keep up the amazing work, ladies!

15 Amazing and inspiring Mom Bloggers! 15 Awards given!

If you haven’t heard of any of these sites, please stop by and tell them congrats! I am sure that they would love a comment or two, a Twitter follow, and also a Facebook “Like”.

  1. Wow! Thank you so much for acknowledging me. You are so awesome! I am glad you enjoyed reading my Candy and Stew post so much. I love to make people laugh! This award definitely motivates this mom! P.S. I love the look of your blog.

    • You are very welcome – your feedback means a great deal to me.
      Here in the next few days, hopefully my site will be blessed with a new and improved look. I am getting my theme customized by my amazing husband, but it will be still based on the current theme. I promise you will still like it (I hope anyhow).

  2. Thank so much, I so appreciate it! I love discovering new bloggers, love love love your blog! Will post this week for sure!

  3. Thank you for the award!!! I love that you know how to change out the spark plugs. I need to learn. I have shelled out a lot of money for spark plug issues in the past few years. And, I was totally a band geek too, clarinet, but I wanted to play the flute, or the drums, or the trumpet, anything but clarinet!

    I read you are changing your site design. It already looks great! I can\’t wait to see your new enhancements.

    • You are very welcome. You can save so much money on vehicle repair costs if you do most of it yourself. Yes sometimes you end up with a few bloody knuckles and or hands that are not beautifully manicured, but well worth it. Two thumbs up to another band geek – sorry you got stuck with the clarinet. (my second child decided that he wanted to play the oboe and I am not for sure why. Needless to say I am leasing one because those are seriously expensive even for the beginner models)
      Thanks for your kind words about the site design.

  4. Thanks so much for recognizing my Blog on your page and spreading the word! I think this is great way to check out so many Blogs that are worthy! Thanks again!


    • Thanks for your comment! Been very busy with our site redesign, and have been in serious catchup mode with comments myself. I really do enjoy your site – keep up the great work. While doing this post, I also found this was a great way to discover many, many great new sites.

  5. Congratulations to YOU! I think your awesome… thanks for sharing with us..I think it’s cool you can change your brakes and plugs..my whole family would love to go hunting with you and myself well… I love the driving part too!!!! I wish gas prices would go down!
    Take care,

  6. Thank you for recognizing Lawrence Girls! 🙂

    I fell behind on comments / Twitter during the weekend, and I feel remiss that didn’t say thanks sooner. I’m looking forward to checking out your other picks!

    • LOL – I know exactly what you mean…as you can see, I got a little behind myself! Love your site, and I hope you (and everyone) have as much fun as I did checking out tons of different sites.
