You like me!

Thank you so much for all of your kind words while I was gone - and your encouragement now that I'm back!  I got two awards in the last few days since my return.  This must be what the Prodigal Son felt like.  
KLC at Tales of a Northern Belle gave me the Honest Scrap award.

And Kristy at The Hall Family gave me The Great Attitude/ Gratitude Award.

Thanks girls! 

So here are the rules:

The Honest Scrap Award:
Here are the rules:
Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design.Show the 7 winners names and links on your blog, and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with "Honest Scrap." Well, there's no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon. Then, list at least 10 honest things about yourself. 

1.  I live in a permanent state of cold.  I wear under armour and hot chillys under my jeans in winter.  In Dallas.  When I tell people I was born in New Jersey they don't believe me.  
2.  I am the youngest in my family.  By A LOT.  My sister is 14 years older than me.  My brother is 10 years older than me.  
3.  My husband is also the youngest in his family.  By A LOT.  His oldest brother is 14 years older.  His middle brother is 10 years older than him.  Coincidence?  I think not!
4.  I am obsessed with my phone.  It isn't that my phone is particularly nice.  It isn't.  But any little device that lets me check my e-mail, facebook, etc. all while I sit and wait in a waiting room is fantastic!
5.  I love shoes.  I mean I really love shoes.  I at one point owned over 300 pairs of shoes.  Since my ankle surgery I've been slowly getting rid of all of my heels because I can't wear them.  I am ashamed to admit that I no longer find my merrells, keens, or other "comfy" shoes so ugly.
6.  I claim that I never drink soda.  But occasionally I take sips of my husbands Dr. Pepper or Root Beer.
7.  I love night time soap operas.  It started with Grey's Anatomy.  Then my love just kept growing.  I now DVR Greek, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Brothers and Sisters, Private Practice, 90210, Dirty Sexy Money, Lipstick Jungle, Ugly Better, and The Starter Wife.  I truly love my DVR! (If only I had time to watch all of these shows!  Our DVR keep getting fuller and fuller and I am completely unable to catch up.)
8.  I have watched all three seasons of Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team and now I am totally compelled to watch The Bachelor to see how Melissa does.  She is so cute!
9.  I love photography but I'm not very good at it.  I would love to take a photography class at some point and learn basics of lighting and angles and such.  Do you think a photography class would teach me how to be more photogenic?
10. I got scared during The Lion King.  And Anastasia.  And Finding Nemo.  I don't do well in tense moments and have been known to draw blood (my poor husband!)  Needless to say - we don't see scary movies.  Ever.  

I've been gone for a while, so I don't know who has received these awards yet.  I pass them along to anyone who hasn't gotten them yet!


  1. Congrats on your awards! Your list was great! I love my phone, too for the same reason! It's great isn't it!? I can even read blogs from mine! I love The Bachelor & really like Melissa, too! She's really cute! And I love like all the shows you DVR... we have so much in common! hehe

  2. Congrats on the awards! I love photography too, but am not good at it either!
