Honest Scrap

Ladybird nominated me for the Honest Scrap award. I'm so excited!

The rules for this award:

Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Show the winners names and links on your blog, and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Scrap.” There’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.

List at least 10 honest things about yourself:

1. I always have the best intentions on improving my patience. Then I forget I'm working on it and lose it.

2. Before deciding to get my accounting degree, I looked into sonography. My funding wouldn't pay for it.

3. I am a total wall flower. I hate being in social situations (even skipped my college graduation because of it). Because of that, I don't friend people often on facebook or myspace. I don't want the disappointment when they deny me because they don't remember me or like me. So if you see me at the store and I don't say hello, it's not because I don't like you, it's because of my own stigmas.

4. I love thunderstorms but only if Hubby is home for me to curl up with. Otherwise, they make me nervous.

5. I don't understand how people can blog about things that are intimately personal. I end up feeling like I'm blogging in circles trying not to give too much information but enough to get my feelings across.

6. I wish I had to opportunity to blog when my kids were babies. Blogging about their milestones doesn't have the same effect now that they are so much older.

7. Bryce is a half inch shorter than I am as of last week. It scares me that my 11 year old is as big as I am.

8. I read so much about people and their faith. How much they rely on it, believe in it, share it. I would like to be brave enough to blog about my struggles with my faith and my fear of what's coming. Maybe. Some day.

9. I could sit and watch the cats wash their faces for hours because I think it's funny. I just want to ask them, "Are you sure you got it all?"

10. If I could, I'd be a permanent student. I loved being in college and hated when my time was up!

My blog recommendations are:

1. All in a Days Work

2. Daily Diatribes

3. Paralegal Diva

4. Life with the Watts Family

Sorry I don't have seven but I picked four who read my blog and leave comments. Thanks Ladybird!

I think sonography would be so cool!

I LOOOOVE thunderstorms!

I don't blog about things that are too personal. Sometimes I think that gives people the impression that I am happy all the time, but blogging about the happy things, makes me happier. Accentuate the positive.

I love hearing about your kids milestones! Keep them coming! Your kids basketball championship totally blows my kid not rolling over out of the water!

My neice has been taller than me for a year. It is kinda freaky.

#8 I still feal that way every day.

Great list!!!! Thanks for doing it!
