Versatile Blogger Award!!!


I am amazed every day by all the bloggy love DJ’s Sugar Shack has gotten since I started blogging in December. I never imagined that anyone other than my mom would read my ramblings about baking. She’s my biggest fan:) But since then my treats have been featured 13 times on 9 different blogs & this morning I found out that Addicted to Recipes  nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award! It is so  nice to be recognized by people who share the same passion as I do. *sniff* * tears of joy*

Once nominated for the award, the blogger gets to pass it along to 15 of their favorite blogs! What a cool way to show other bloggers how much you appreciate their work and introduce bloggers to new blogs. I love it! I have discovered so many FABULOUS blogs over the past few months & narrowing my list down to 15 was more difficult than I expected.

I am passing this award onto the following awesome blogs:

1. Cristin’s Cookies

2. The Sweet Spot

3. A little Nosh

4. Michelle Paige

5. Angie’s Sweet Natured Treats

6. Happy Hour Projects

7. Little Becky Homecky

8. Mrs Fox’s Sweets

9. Gingerbread

10. Life is Sweets

11. What about Second Breakfast

12. Cajun Sugar Pie

13. Momnivore’s Dilemma

14. Not so Homemade

15. Bringing Beauty

I am also supposed to share 7 random things about myself. Here goes:

1. I was born and raised in New Orleans. I moved to Alaska after college & I love it here despite the frigid winters.

2. I’m a only child & only grandchild. Translation…SPOILED ROTTEN. I’m not afraid to own it.

3. I have a very needy, tubby cat named Luna, (short for Lunatic) & and an even needier 105 lb American Bulldog, named Boozer, who thinks he is the size of a Chihuahua. They both crack me up daily.

4. As much as I love to bake, given the choice between a cupcake and a large bag of chips, I would take the chips every time. I would also eat the entire bag at once. We don’t keep chips in our house for this very reason.

5. I work at the biggest ski resort in Alaska, Alyeska Resort. If you are ever near Anchorage, Alaska be sure to check it out. Even if you not a skier you can ride the tram and get some spectacular views. We are having a record breaking snow year this year with nearly 800 inches of snow since November.

6. The first concert I went to was Madonna and The Beastie Boys were the opening act. I was in the 5th grade. Thanks mom for taking me!

7. Last but not least… I have the best boyfriend in the world even if he does drive me absolutely batty sometimes. If you tell him I said that I will deny it; we wouldn’t want him to get a big head:)

Another big thanks to Addicted To Recipes for passing this award on to me:) If you haven’t already checked out the blog make sure to do so. There are so many delicious recipes to check out. I have a couple on my to-do list right now.

    Thanks so much for the award! For somebody who just started blogging in December, you’ve got a great blog. I’ve gotten the Versatile Blogger Award before so I won’t post about myself again, but it’s great to learn about you, and I’ll be mentioning the award and you in my next post.

    And now I’m off to find out just how you make candied carrots!
