Versatile Blogger Award

Urban Hounds gave us the Versatile Blogger award!

We are honored. A little peeved that we have to let mom hog the blog, but then again, she does feed us.

So seven things about mom.

1. She's a smarty pants. Working on her doctorate in public administration. About 3 more years to go! Puts a crimp on our time, but she claims it will bring in more treat money later on.

2. She drives a ratty old pickup truck. It's been breaking down a lot, so we are hoping to get a pugmobile this fall. Fawn colored interior, of course!

3. She learned Korean for the Air Force. She hated it and was glad she never had to go to Korea.

4. She trained us in Chinese. Gotta be different. So now we can ignore "sit" in two languages!

5. Her sister is her best friend. The plan is to find a great place to live (somewhere southern!) where they can either share a big house or live next to one another. We have to wait a few more years until Uncle John retires from the Army, then they hope to at least be in the same time zone.

6. She likes to call herself Martha Vila. She channels Martha Stewart to sew and craft and cook and Bob Vila to build stuff. She has some really cool power tools.

7. She plans on having really blue or purple hair when she gets old. Why not?

We are passing this award on to seven bloggers we'd like to know more about. Definitely hard to pick just seven!

  1. Great to hear more about you. Sorry your mom had to hog the blog in order to pass on the award!

  2. Wow, your human sounds great! Be thankful you had to share the blog with her! And pug colored interior for a car is what everyone should have...

    Drools and licks,
    Minnie and Mack

  3. My dad is getting his MBA right now, so I know all about the time away thing.
    I am so honored! Thanks SFP ladies! But I must admit that I don't know how this works...what do I do?
    PS. My parents got me a pool at Wal-Mart this weekend, so I'll be trying it out this week. I'll keep you posted...

  4. Congratulations on your award
    Benny & Lily

  5. Oh girls! Thank you ever so much. I have lots of things to tell about Mom. Not sure they will get approval, but we are honored never the less!
    Your Mom has lots of fun interesting things to tell. Wow Korean and Chinese. Very impressive. I like that you can disobey in two languages!

  6. Hi sweet frined
    First let me say thank you for visiting my bloggy and the sweet comment.
    I also wanted to congradulate you on this awsome Award. This is just one of many that you deserve.
    Thank you for sharing all the cool things about your mom. I love that someday your mom will have blue or purple hair. Why not?

  7. OOOHHH Thank you for the awesome award! Mom is thinking on this and will put something together (she's pretty boring though...).

    VERY cool factoids about your mom! We especially liked the blue/purple hair!!! HAHAHAAAA!


  8. You girls are too kind. We will be posting our award soon! Mom loves that your mum wants wild old lady hair too. Rock on! She sounds like an interesting lady.
