Camille over at Herding Ducks has tagged me with this lovely award - The Queen of Awesome!
In order to accept the award:

1. List Seven Things That Make You Awe-Summm!
2. Pass the award on to seven bloggers you read religiously.
3. Tag those seven bloggers

So.....seven things that make me awesome:
  1. I can read really fast. Compared to the average person, that is....not compared to my brother Jeremy. But nobody compares to him, so that doesn't count.
  2. Out of college, I worked at an alternative school for two years....when my coworkers pegged me as someone who wouldn't last there a month (being young, white, and female). Ha. I still have a scar on my arm from a student there.....and I also still have an African violet (over 9 years old) given to me by another student.
  3. I can belch super loud. I normally save this for solitary times and occasionally one will slip when I'm around my family... but recently I accidentally did it around a 4 year old I was babysitting. I immediately realized my mistake and as I was saying "Oh, excuse me!" he giggled and said, "Wow! You burp just like my dad!" Oh mercy.
  4. People swoon over my cheesecakes. I know I only have a couple of recipes on here, but I have many more in my arsenal....cheesecakes are my FAVORITE! I just don't make them often anymore since we're trying to be healthier and I won't post recipes without photos.
  5. I'm 31 years old and I've never had a cavity.
  6. I love maps and have a general very good sense of direction.
  7. I have a very impressive collection of Taste of Home magazines (every issue from 2000 - present) and have no intention of ever giving any of them up. So there.

Bloggers I'm tagging:

  1. Bethany at Happy to be Called Mommy
  2. Snow White at Joy in my Kitchen
  3. Carie at All that Wonder Are Not Lost
  4. Laura at Heavenly Homemakers
  5. Amanda at Geidlbots: Tales of German Robots Living In America
  6. Katharine at Raising Five
  7. Kelly at Generation Cedar


  1. Hi Rebekah! So fun to get to know you more - you and my Allie would get along just great in the belching department! She can do it louder than I thought was humanly possible, and, being the oldest, she has used her influence to "teach" the rest of the kids. Sigh. Maybe some day she can blog about it!

    I love maps and am always the navigator on family trips. I argue with my husband's GPS all the time (I'm right and I know it!!).

    Very honored to be tagged - you are so kind!


  2. That was so kind of you to tag me with such a nice award! :) Thanks Rebekah!

  3. Loved the burping comment. lol.

    Just wondering if you spent your Blue Q winnings yet? Did you get anything good?

  4. The Blue Q contest....well, I emailed the prizes@thepioneerwoman.com link at least 5 times to claim the prize as instructed and never heard anything back. I can't figure out what is the problem....but I'm not counting on actually getting anything. Very disappointing...I was so excited that I called my husband at work immediately to shriek that I won something!

  5. The same exact thing happened to me. I e-mailed her three times.. and nothing.

    I was very disappointed as well. I was going to spend it on some dear friends. Maybe she only doles out prizes once a month or something?

  6. I just got an email from the "new prize wrangler" for the Pioneer Woman....apparently things have been changing around and stuff has been delayed. She said I should get my prize from Blue Q directly...I'm assuming in an email. So that's good....I'll look forward to buying some Christmas presents!

  7. Thanks for the update. Maybe they'll send me an e-mail as well.

    Your blueberry tarts look wonderful!

  8. Thanks so much for the honor Rebekah! I'd love to hear you belch some time! My boys would be oh so impressed!! :)
