Versatile Blogger Award!

Who? Me? A blogging award? I didn't even know there was such a thing! But the lovely and talented Rissa at Hazel and Honeysuckle awarded it to Vintage Gwen!

It was a nice exciting surprise! Thanks so much Rissa!
Here's whats gonna happen.  I share 7 facts about myself and then give the award to 7 other beautiful bloggers to join the fun.  So let the fact fun begin!!

I love taking pictures.  Have for a long time.  Someday, at the surprisingly sweet suggestion from my husband, I'm gonna take some classes.

Speaking of my husband.... I waited a long time for him! I got married when I was 32.   Long story short...I had tried dating sites but it was an epic fail.  God brought my Hunk to me.  I wrote the  homeowners insurance on the new house he bought.  A week later he called me and asked me out.  We dated for 6 months and got married.  I knew it wouldn't be a long courtship when God was in control.

God had me start a yearly mission trip for my church's youth group.  We are celebrating 10 years with our 11th trip this year.  It is an accomplishment I try not to be too proud's all about God and what He does on the trips!

I like to sing!!! I'm on my church's worship team and lead when everyone else is off having fun.  I still get nervous....I want to help lead people to that special place of worship which is a big deal to me!

My guilty pleasure is makeup!  Especially Urban Decay.  This didn't really come about until I found makeup tutorials on You Tube!! You should check out Makeup Geek.  She's amazing!

(My newest purchase! Probably gonna show up in a 'Show and Tell'!)

I like riding four wheelers and motorcycles!  My Hunk had a Suzuki motorcycle for a little while....he sold it...cause we need a bigger house.  :)  I even have a shiny, German-like, helmet!! Cause someday we'll have one of these:

I've had my picture on a billboard before!  When I was working for the State Farm Agent here in Skiatook, she had a picture of her and her staff put on a billboard with a Christmas greeting.  I looked like a football helmet head!
(This was back when I only had a film camera and I guess I had black and white film in, experimenting? I do that sometimes.... )

Hope you enjoyed that!!

Okay, I am coming to finally confess I tried to post this button onto my awards part of my blog and since it didn't have an html, I need to change the design option I have for that section. I didn't want you to think I ignored your sweet encouragement! : ) I am slow at getting around to blog design changes--not my forte. I know I can do it--I just need a chunk of time!
