The Honest Scrap Award

There are a few requirements and they are as follows:
- I must thank the person who gave me the award and list their blog and link it
- I must list 10 honest things about myself
- I must put a copy of The Honest Scrap Logo on my blog.
- I must select at least 7 other worthy bloggers & list their links
- I must notify the bloggers of the award and hopefully they will follow the above requirements.


As you can see I've been nominated for an award. Thanks to Hypnosis To Transform Your Life for tagging ME! I'm relatively new to the blogging world so I don't have seven blogs to tag, so I'm going to be totally lame and wait to tag people. I'm getting interested in a few more blogs so I'll tag some as soon as I am able and have blogs worthy of being tagged!

So, all I have to do now is blog Ten Honest Things about me.

1.) I am a morning person. I love waking up early in the mornings, sitting on the porch, having some coffee and reading a book. Or even just sitting there.

2.) I would love, (love, love) to be a stay at home wife and mother someday. I have such a desire to have the kind of life where I can be at home for my husband when he gets home, with a warm meal on the table and the house clean. I would love to have the privilege of watching my children grow and being able to really be there for them. (At least when they are younger.. once they get to middle school, I'd like to either have a part time job ooorr....)

3.) If I am able to be a stay at home wife/mom, I would love to put extra energy into writing. A long while ago I wrote a book, probably one that will never get published and I am writing my second one now. I would also love to write screenplays. Even if it is just a past time. But I'd love to write and get paid for it!

4.) I wish so badly that I was more creative. I wish I could paint or sew, or something!!! I would love to make my own dresses and build my own jewelry boxes... But have no clue where to start on that front. Haha... and I fear it will always turn out different than what I have in my head.

5.) You may or may not know this but I love to read. I love reading any books about relationships. I love reading about the interactions of people and just their daily life. Maybe that's why I love blogs!

6.) I love to watch movies. Give me a movie, some fruit, popcorn or ice cream and I am good. to. go.

7.) I am super-duper shy...even if it doesn't seem like it. I have to make SUCH an effort to be outgoing. I rarely ever make the first move... and half the time I'm getting to know someone I am trying to A. figure them out and try to gauge their personality and B. I wonder (and worry) if I'm going to be totally rejected.

8.) I am longing to develop long and lasting relationships with a girls at or close to my age. I am really missing the connection between girls... which probably stems from my sisters being either far away or enveloped in their own life. I would love to have a Sex and The City type group but without all the sex... and The City. But I'd love to have some real friendships where we can be honest and supportive with each other.

9.) I am never satisfied with my life. I always have goals... once I achieve the goal I take a few moments to bask in the awesomeness of achieving the goal... I then figure out my next goal... and I keep moving. I like to keep 'climbing the ladder." I guess that's the Republican in me. ;) They don't even have to be life changing goals... they can just be reorganizing the pantry! But I always have little things to accomplish.

10.) If I could go back in time to any moment, I would go back to this one vacation where my family and I went camping. I woke up in the morning and it was just me and my Dad and he was getting ready to cook breakfast...and he was making coffee.. I remember the smell.. Anyways. I was trying to climb up this little hill on the side of the mountain to get to a trail but I kept falling, so my Dad gave me his hammer and showed me how to notch foot holes in the dirt and climb up. I was so ecstatic. When I came back down my Mom and him were making breakfast and my sisters were waiting at the table. My Dad had Glen Campbell playing. It was such a nice family moment. I miss things like that.

There it is. I tried to be as brutally honest as I could. Hope you learned something new about me. :)


  1. Congrats. And for the record, you are NOT shy. You are introverted. :)

  2. Haha... Like you would know. I'm not shy around YOU. I'm shy around people I don't know. Durrr.

    To you im introverted... because I am.


Thanks for posting at Embrace the Crazy!

We love making new friends and we love comments.

However, this is a drama-free zone. As much as we love crazy, we don't love THAT kind of crazy.

We reserve the right to zap any mean, hurtful, or snarky comments right off the internet never to be seen again! (Bwa-ha-ha.) But, we sure do love constructive criticism and some helpful ideas and opinions! Can't wait to hear yours! :)
