versatileadjectiveshe's our most versatile [blogger] adaptable, flexible, all-around,multifaceted, multitalented, resourceful; adjustable, multipurpose,all-purpose, handy; rare polytropic.  (New Oxford American Dictionary)

CK, here:  Thank you SO much Donna Perugini for granting us the Versatile award!  I'd just like thank my kids for watching Super Why one more time while I blog, my husband who loves sports like I love blogs, and for my other sister (Lydia) for making dinner for me... while I blog!!!  Haha!   No, in all seriousness, I really do enjoy blogging (both writing and reading) and I am so happy to have the chance to meet so many good friends through blogging.    -CK
We would like to pass this blog award on to some of our favorite reads:
1.  House of Sarager (pronounced like Sargent but with an 'r').  Jackie is hysterical!  Often brief and to the point so its easy to check her blog often.  I never miss a day of my friend, Jackie.
2.  My friend at Ryan, Andrea and Ethan.  Andrea writes with love and conviction and I so enjoy her thoughts and insights.  
3.  Paisley Passions!  This blog is way crafty and way fun to read.  Lori has great taste and great creativity!  
4.  Posts at On this Journey called... Life are SURE to please.  I always enjoy reading posts by Ms. Understood.  She's such a great writer and she's very versatile, for sure.
I have one more person to pass the award on to, so stay tuned to hear about her!

Part of the blog award rules state that we share seven things about ourselves.  So, here we go:
1.  Both Becka and I have taken rides on elephants, llamas and OSTRICHES!!!  Ya, they let you ride those in Africa...
2.  Becka and I grew up moving around outside of the US, mostly in South America and Africa.
3.  We both went to college together and shared a dorm room for a number years.  We fought over everything (shirts, curling iron, shoes, etc.)  every day.
4.  Becka was with me when I met my husband (at a dance)... and when I had my first baby at the hospital.
5.  I like to "go natural" whenever I can and I've had two births at home with midwives.  Becka also had a baby without an epidural and though she didn't plan it that way, I think she deserves kudos, for sure!
6.  Becka married a farm boy, I married a Navy boy.
7.  We played in two different orchestras together growing up.  I play violin, Becka cello.
What interesting things do you guys have about yourselves???  I'd love to hear it!  Thanks everyone for being such great friends!  I'm excited to see how the new versatile blog award winners accept their awards!
Sorry we've been out all week.  We've been doin' other stuff, but we still love bloggin'!

I think the best part about receiving this award is other blogger's chance to find out things about you!
Congratulations and I made the right pick with you two!!

Ms. Understood said...

Thanks for this award CK and Becka for thinking of me. I got it before, but it's always fun to share new things with readers. With 30 years of life, I think I can come up with seven more things :-)

I can't believe y'all live across the country from each other, I would have guess that y'all at least lived in the same state. I'm so impressed by people who can withstand the pain of unmedicated deliveries. People hate when people get kudos for it, but dag gonnit, I find it impressive. It's so beautiful that y'all are so close to each other and wow for riding those animals. I thought I was doing something special riding a horse, LOL.

I love Ms. Jackie, too!
Thanks for your comments on my kitchen. It took over a year. :)

If you link your email to your blogger profile, it would be easier to respond to your comments!

This post makes me long for a sister but makes me so happy to be raising sisters! =)

I finally blogged about my Versatile Blogger award and linked back to you. Thanks again!

Hi Carrie!!
Thank you for your comment and donation to the Afghan School Project!! I am so excited!

I am a new follower! I love this blog. How much fun!

I've always been under the impression that llamas and ostriches were pretty cranky animals. How is it that they are OK for people to hop on??

Carrie K said...

@ Liz, They are! Haha! When we were riding the llama (we have a picture of me and Becka ages 3&5 in Bolivia) Becka was in front holding on to the llamas neck. That llama tipped its head down to get a drink and- oops!- Becka tumbled forward off the animal.
As for the ostrich, when we went to go ride them at an ostrich farm in South Africa (ages 9 & 11), the workers of the farm slipped dark, burlap bags of the ostriches' heads so animals couldn't see us coming up behind to mount them on their backs. Once we did get on, we hung on for dear life (our legs slipped beneath their wings) for those ostriches went tearing out of the stables, mad as pitbulls on coals!
I have pictures in my baby book. Maybe I can get my Mom to scan some in if she has some time.

Jackie said...

Wait. How did my sweet friend Carrie and my darling new friend Katie get to know each other? Or have you always known each other?

I love both of you!

Thanks thanks thanks Carrie. Or should I call you CK?

I love you. I love your blog. I love your sweet babies. You are an amazing mother. You are a beautiful friend.

Thank you thank you thank you.
