Honest sCRAP


This award was bestowed upon me by Julia at Brainella the Librarian. She's an honest kind of person, so I feel honored that she would award me the Honest Scrap Award. Her blog is down-to-earth and just about life. Go check visit and say hi!

Here are the rules:

In accepting this award, I need to do the following:
1) Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award.
2) Share "ten honest things" about myself.
3) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.
4) Tell those 7 people that they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.

10 Honest Things About Myself: (this could get embarrassing...OK, so I'm not easily embarrassed.)
  1. I burp...a LOT.
  2. I LOVE coffee, not just like, but LOVE. (especially from Starbucks)
  3. I like to be right. So shoot me! You can't tell me that people walk around thinking, "Man, I love being wrong...it feels good to be wrong." whatev.
  4. I take things personal...even when I shouldn't.
  5. I over analyze EVERYTHING.
  6. I'm a talker...I talk a lot. Just tell me to shut-up if you ever need to...I'll try not to take it personal. (pssshhh, yeah right.)
  7. I'm Nosey (with a capital N...it's like a profession).
  8. I can be over dramatic.
  9. I LOVE giving gifts. It's much better than getting them.
  10. I would LOVE to go on a missions trip.

Honest.

7 People I Tag:

  1. Xazmin @ This Is The Year - Xazmin is a kindred spirit. We share a LOVE (and when I say LOVE I mean verging on "groupie" status here) of NKOTB (If you don't know what NKOTB stands for do NOT ask Xazmin or myself, we will give you the "uhh, you don't know who NKOTB is" look...yeah, it won't be pretty). She's also been a great friend who always listens and offers advise whenever I need it. Thank, Xazmin! :)
  2. Rebeckah @ Life With Kaishon - I love Rebeckah! Whenever I am down and need a boost, I just go visit Rebeckah's blog. She always has fun and AH-mazing pictures of kiddos and family. Plus, she always has the kindest coolest words. You're a gem, Rebeckah!
  3. Vivienne @ The V Spot - Have you had your dose of funny today? (that is a question we should ask ourselves everyday) If you haven't, and you want it given to you straight, then you should go see Vivienne. Girl is Funny (with a capital F). Also, she is my hero. She is the MOST organized person I know. When I am cleaning in my house, I seriously think to myself "WWVD"...what would Vivienne do? Remember it...use it...WWVD.
  4. Amber @ {aefilkins} - Amber is awesome! She hosts EM:MEs, which have been a HUGE inspiration for me while on my weight loss journey. She also goes to WW and it's fun to share WW ideas. Her blog is great and full of life. Go check her out...oh, and join in on EM:MEs or FMMs (she's hosting for Kelsey while she takes a bloggy break).
  5. Kelli @ Outside My Kitchen Window - Kelli is a new bloggy friend (and Facebook friend). She is super nice and has GREAT craft ideas on her blog. I read things on there and think "I COULD do that"...she makes it seem possible. Plus, she always has inspiring words and scriptures.
  6. Julie @ Shabbywears - I got to know Julie through my very first bloggy swap. She was my partner and she totally HOOKED me up! She has a fun (newly redecorated) blog and she's got a family of ranchers. She got my name for Seriously's Birthday Swap! WOOHOO! I can't wait!
  7. Becca @ The Texas Darlings - Becca is an amazing mom to three adorable kiddos. Her and her kids collected a post card from all 50 states this summer. What a cool idea, huh? She has an ADORABLE blog and always has fun-to-read posts!

Hope everyone is have a wonderful Wednesday!

Awww
Thank you!! I am cracking up at the WWVD. There are people who would look at that and think it's a recipe for disaster (My Hubs is one...) You get me. Thanks!
(BTW - I can't relate to #1, but 2-9 especially fit me too!)

Congratulations on the award - you deserve it. I loved reading your list. I also take things very personally and over-analyze everything. I think it drives my husband nuts!

Have a super day!

Congratulations! I love reading your lists :) #3 cracks me up (and I would never have guessed that you were a talker!) and just yesterday I was trying to express my love of coffee to Matt. He didn't get it. I can't figure out why.

Every day I go around hoping I am wrong. I say it all the time. So you are WAY off : ) There are people that like to be wrong all the time. SIKE : )

Thank you so much. I am going to visit all of your people. Because, if you like them, then I will too.

I talk all the time too. Sometimes I don't even know what I am talking about. Non stop rambling....
