Versatile Blogger

Both Stress Free Infertility and C awarded me The Versatile Blogger award several weeks ago, but I didn't get a chance to write a post because of what my hometown has endured recently. I know I'm super late (almost time for May ICLW), but here it is...

The rules:
1. Link back to the person who gave you the award

Thank you both! I am truly honored.

2. Tell 7 things about yourself

1. I hate chewing gum
2. I'm terrified of heights
3. I've lived in 3 countries
4. I don't like fast food and I love to cook!
5. I become "cleaning insane lady" a few days before AF arrives
6. I love reality TV.  I watch all kinds of mindless shows. Makes me feel better about my life.
7. I didn't like onions until a few years ago. I now love grilled onions!

3. Award other bloggers - The Versatile Blogger award is for 15 'recently discovered bloggers'  - I chose 14
Blogs I discovered during April ICLW are:

2. Misconceptions About Conception -
3. My daily mooosings in the Netherlands
5. From Ms. to Mrs.... & back to Ms. -
6. Chasing Our Stork: Our Journey with Infertility -
8. I Want to be a Daddy -
9. Rochelle at For all the things we hope for -
10. Poor Lucky Me -
11. The Bushey Life -
12. The Inadequate Conception -
13. Waiting for Stork -

I look forward to following each and every blog.  Good luck to all!
Happy early May ICLW!


  1. Thank you, Carmela for the Award!

    I appreciate it very much; it made me smile this morning and made my day, as I discovered your message in my email box.

    Looking forward to getting to know you.

    Happy ICLW!

    My Daily Mooosings in the Netherlands

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you Carmela! Very sweet of you to recognize my lil' ol' blog. I was laughing at your list because several ring true with me - hate heights, lived in 4 countries, hate onions (so I'm still waiting for that one to be the same)

    Will be following you now!

  3. Happy ICLW! I used to dislike onions - I still really hate raw onions but like fried onions on burgers. Yum.

  4. Happy ICLW! Thank you so much for the sweet award! Following and looking forward to your updates!

  5. Happy ICLW! Great post -- it's always nice to learn a little something-something about a blogger other than all the IF stuff. Good luck with the new RE!!

  6. Congrats on your award and thanks for sharing info about yourself.

  10. Happy ICLW!

    I like cooking, I hate planning...any suggestions!

  11. Hello Carmella, I am here fro ICLW. I can relate to your cleaning spree just before AF arrives. I do the same exact thing!

  12. Thank you for the award, I've always wanted one! I mean I love all awards and accolades, but a blogging award from a fellow blogger makes me so happy.


  13. Thank you too, Carmela. Every shout out makes a difference to a new blogger.
