Here are a handful of rules:
1. In a post on your, blog, nominate 15 fellow bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award.
2. In the same post, add the Versatile Blogger Award photo.
3. In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog.
4. In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself.
5. In the same post, include this set of rules.
6. Inform each nominated blogger of their nomination by posting a comment on each of their blogs.
So, here are the seven little known facts about Andrea Bandle:
1. I am half Dutch as my mother was born in the Netherlands and came to the U.S. when she was four years old.
2. My husband and I will be celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary this May.
3. My lucky number is 21. I was born on the 21st of June, I weighed 6lbs, 14oz, I was 21" long, and my mom was in hospital room 1011. (I did go to Las Vegas for my 21st birthday, but was too intimidated to play Blackjack. I did win a little at the slots.)
4. I have double jointed fingers and can bend them almost all the way back. (I enjoy creeping out my daughter's friends with this trick.)
5. I often missed getting a 100% on my reports in school due to typos and spelling errors. I'm sure my 6th grade teacher would be proud to know I am now an editor.
6. I wrote my first story when I was 10, titled, "Freddie's Flight to Ocean Park." I wish I'd kept it. I do remember there was a baracuda (probably inspired from the rock song), though I had no clue what that was.
7. I met my longest, dearest friend, Abbie when our elementary schools (hers in Ohio, mine in California) matched us up in a pen pal program.
