Versatile Blogger Award

The other day, I noticed that one of our fabulous readers, ~She~ from SHE Says, awarded us with The Versatile Blogger Award.  Thanks, ~she~!  ~She~ just completed a marathon (great job!) and her blog is all about her life and her family and includes a few tasty recipes here and there (her Texas Sheet Cake looks pretty darn awesome!).

As part of accepting the Versatile Blogger Award, we're supposed to include 7 things about ourselves.  So...here you go--7 things about me (Lydia) and my sister (Greta):
  1. Greta is a sci-fi nerd.  She has always loved Star Wars, Star Trek, etc.  She dragged me to a Star Trek convention when I was a kid and we got to meet Scotty!
  2. I'm a girly-girl, quite opposite of my sister.  I love clothes, makeup, jewelry, etc.  My iphone case is Hello Kitty, so that kinda sums it all up.
  3. Growing up, my sister and I hated each other.  We fought constantly.  There is a 4-year age difference and that, along with our very different personalities and interests, meant that we had little in common and were in a constant state of conflict.
  4. Greta got a degree in science (sorry, Greta--I can't remember your exact field at the moment), but minored in English.  She went to school in the snowy tundra of Wisconsin.
  5. I have a degree in history (with a minor in womens' studies).  I went to Vermont for college--we both went to cold places with a strong dairy tradition!
  6. Greta's least favorite foods are bananas, peppers (red, green, etc.), and sage.
  7. My most hated?  They include ham, broccoli, and tarragon.
We're also supposed to present the Versatile Blogger Award to a bunch of other bloggers.  I'll have to work on that!  In the meantime, though, check out the "Read the Yum" section of our site for other food blogs (and our Friends and Fellow Bloggers section...on the right).
