The Versatile Blogger Award


I was nominated for this award by fellow Canadian blogger Stash Matters, thanks so much! If you don’t follow her blog already, you really should! 🙂

• Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
• Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy.
• Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
• Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link back to the post on your site announcing their nomination.
• Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.


Once again, it seems as if everyone has already been nominated for this award. If you haven’t yet, or would like another go, please do let me know, and I will happily nominate you!

Seven facts about me:

1. I love to cook, but I don’t like baking.

2. I can’t eat anything with coconut in it, and the smell of coconut makes me gag. Despite this, I can cook with coconut milk, and make smoothies with coconut water and neither of them make me sick.

3. I’ve eaten jellyfish. Twice. Guess what? I don’t like eating jellyfish.

4. I like dijon mustard, horseradish and wasabi to be so hot that the top of my head tingles.

5. I started running about three years ago. I only started running AFTER having knee surgery.

6. I was able to watch my knee surgery while it was happening. It wasn’t as interesting to watch as I had hoped, as it just looked like a lasagna noodle that someone was trimming the torn bits off of.

7. I am an avid reader. I’ve finished reading 46 books so far this year.

  1. Congrats and thanks for the link back.
    What does jellyfish taste like?
    I tried coconut water and I HATE that stuff – because it doesn’t TASTE like coconut – probably the reason why you can tolerate it. (Fun fact, I just applied coconut hand cream lol!)
    Oooh that knee surgery sounds interesting though still.
    Wow, 46 books so far, impressive. My bf has a target to read a book a week, which I think is already quite impressive. I’ve read um, ZERO books this year. I hate reading books. I’ll read reddit all day long though.

    1. Hmmm. It wasn’t so much the taste, because it was in a dish at a Chinese restaurant, it was the texture that I didn’t like (kind of rubbery yet slimy). Most foods that I don’t like are often due to the texture grossing me out!

      For my knee surgery, I was expecting something a little more dramatic. And based on the pain level and swelling that I had afterwards, I was surprised to end up with only three tiny little scars on the sides of my knee!
      I set myself a goal to read at least 50 books a year, this year I will definitely hit that goal, haha!
