I hope everyone is had a wonderful weekend. We went out of town and it feels good to be back home.

On top of the fun we had this afternoon, I discovered that I’ve been nominated by Deb from DebtDebs for the Versatile Blogger Award. After reading Deb's, I decided to go ahead and do it.

For those who don't know about the Versatile Blogger Awards, it's a fun meme where you get to know more about bloggers. The rules are:

  • Tell 7 things about yourself (Debs asked me to give some tidbits about pregnancy and parenting).
  • Nominate 15 bloggers

Here are my 7 details:

  1. During my first pregnancy I had no food aversions (though I had bad morning sickness for the first 14 weeks). This time around I spent about a month avoiding meat, coffee, and ginger. Coffee has become a treat, I eat less meat, but ginger is pretty much off limits.
  2. Now that I'm a parent, I'm catching up on some of the kid shows on Netflix and have discovered remakes of my favorite shows growing up like Strawberry Shortcake, Ninja Turtles, and My Little Pony. It feels so weird so I skipped out on most of them.
  3. First baby was a summer one and she was born during a heatwave. This time around we planned a winter baby.
  4. No cravings with either pregnancy. Perhaps I should pretend so I can get some more cakes and pies :)
  5. We like to have fun and play around as parents, sometimes with unexpected consequences. Thanks to a joke from her daddy, whenever we pass a large patch of shadow she points at it and says ‘Batman is in the shadows'. My husband think it's awesome.
  6. Speaking of superheroes, my daughter likes to mash up her dress up. Two of favorites of mine are ‘Batman Princess' and ‘Dancing Ninja'.
  7. I exercise with my little girl by playing Just Dance. If it were up to her we would dance to the same 3 songs, but as her mom, I have her try at least a few new ones.

Here's my nominations for the Versatile Blogger Award:

For those nominated, share whatever you like.Take care and I'll get back to financial posts this week!

  1. My oh my, your daughter is certainly into her Batman, much to your husband’s delight! I used to love Batman too. We knicknamed one of our daughters Batgirl because in her early teens she rescued a bat that had fallen in our pool and tried nursing it back to health. Even though she wore gloves, somehow she got bit and had to get rabies shots when the bat tested positive. When I was pregnant with her I also could not stand the smell of cooking meat. Although his parent’s don’t let him watch TV much, I’m enjoying watching the opening credits of Backyardigans with my grandson (he only likes the opening song) and Dinosaur Train. He loves singing so I think that’s why they keep his attention because he’s only 11 months. Thanks for doing the Versatile Blogger award post, Elle!

    • I just saw the Dinosaur Train! Your daughter and grandson sound sweet and fun. Hope they had a great weekend!
      Yep, our little girl is a comic book baby, 3rd generation. Between her daddy and her grandma (my side) she’s picked up Batman for sure! LOL
