It is so nice to get recognition for doing something you love! You may remember we also won the Liebster award back in March.  Well, we are now proud to announce that we have been awarded the Versatile Blogger Award by Diana and Hope from the MVMT Blog and Lisa from The Middle Aged Wanderer.  Make sure you check out both these blogs and follow along on their adventures!

So without further ado……

The Versatile Blogger Award

Versatile Blogger Award - Two Traveling TexansTo accept our award, we are required to share seven things about ourselves and spread the love by nominating other bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award.  In choosing our nominees we took into consideration the quality of the writing and photographs, the uniqueness of the subjects covered, and the level of love displayed in the words on the virtual page.  We were looking to honor those bloggers who bring something special to the table.

Again, a big thank you to Diana, Hope, and Lisa for nominating us for the Versatile Blogger Award. We would also like to of course thank all of our followers too, we really do appreciate all the support and love hearing from you!

  1. I used to collect Hard Rock Cafe hurricane glasses from the cities I visited.  After collecting 42 I stopped, they just take up too much space.
  2. I can’t sing, but I love karaoke.  Thank goodness for private rooms!
  3. My favorite food is now black pudding. (Thanks to Russell for introducing it to me)
  4. I somehow developed an allergy to rum – so no pina coladas for me.
  5. I love the Garth Brooks Pandora station. Yes, I still love country music.
  6. Dry shampoo changed my life!
  7. I’m obsessed with all the pumpkin items at Trader Joes.

Seven Things about Katherine

Katherine at Wrigley Field

  1. I enjoy being very efficient at packing for trips and find having bulky luggage to be very inconvenient.  
  2. I love watching college football and Major League baseball.  I have been to seven baseball stadiums and I try to plan a trip each year to go to an additional one.
  3. The first beer I ever bought was a Red Stripe in Jamaica.
  4. I have a Diet Coke habit.
  5. I think that pool floats are a must for any trip to the pool.
  6. Including college, I have only lived in five zip codes in my life.
  7. I am a CPA.  There are times of the year when I have to work crazy hours, but then I also have a very generous amount of time off.
