The Versatile Blogger Award!

I wanted to start off by thanking Go Bake Yourself for nominating me for this blogger award. She has an awesome blog with lots of droll-worthy treats. Check her out! 

It's my first time being nominated for anything... and I'm completely taken away and proud! Thank you SOOOO much :)

  1. Thank the Blogger who nominated you.
  2. Include a link to their site.
  3. Include the award image to your post.
  4. Include the award image on your blog.
  5. Give 7 random facts about yourself.
  6. Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.
  7. When nominating other bloggers, include links to their sites.

  3. I dream of moving back to California, one day...
  4. I'm a health/wellness/nutrition information junkie. I can't get enough!
  5. I've spent more than 1/2 my life overweight/obese, and since I've changed my life around - I don't forsee ever being that way again.
  6. Foods I can't give up: an excellent cup of coffee, high quality dark chocolate (70% or greater) and lightly salted peanut butter.
