The Versatile Blogger Award

Three weeks ago, my friend and regular reader Pat O'Dea Rosen of Reading, Writing & Rambling nominated WW&W for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thanks, Pat! *waves*

[Edit to add: I also should never write a blog before the first caffeine hit of the day. All misspellings of 'versatile' have been corrected.]

The rules are pretty simple:

Thank the blogger who nominated you.
Add the award pic to your blog.
Nominate fifteen fellow bloggers and let them know about it.
Share seven random things about yourself.

I'm going to start with the seven random things. Then I'll split my blog nominations over the next two days.

1)  I collect Barbie dolls. I SERIOUSLY collect Barbie dolls. As in I have a storage unit for them. I've started giving them to nieces and friends' daughter for holidays, mainly to keep from having to rent another storage unit.

2)  My birthday is the day before Halloween. DH was literally born on a Friday the 13th. We tell people we're a match made . . . somewhere.  *grin*

3)  Dax is the first dog I've owned that I can't get to sit still for a photo.  I've got plenty of pictures of my other (now deceased) pets. But Dax? I just have lots of black, tan and white blurs.

4)  Some people think I'm one of those moms when I refer to my son as Genius Kid. I'm not. He officially tested at 136, but the child psychologist is sure the score should be between 150-160 because GK deliberately tanked a couple of the tests. I totally understand the character of Mary Cooper from The Big Bang Theory.

5)  I'm a bitchin' amateur cook.  Not in the league of Ivy from The Happy Whisk (who is a professional), but I make a mean chicken-spinach phyllo with alfredo sauce.

6)  I have no sense of direction. The GPS only makes it worse.

7)  Hi, my name is Suzan, and I'm a chocoholic.  My last piece was last night around 10 PM . . .


  1. Hey Suzan. That was fun reading about you. I laughed at the last one. Well done.

    Thanks for the nice words & Happy Cooking.

  2. Ivy, I can't look at your blog right before a meal or I have drool all over my keyboard.

  3. You're not just versatile but full of surprises. I enjoyed the seven random things.

  4. LOL I have to ask, Pat, which thing actually surprised you?
