Honest Scrap Award!

I have lots of pics to download and share about the last few days (Sound Man's 5k, the CD concert, etc, etc.), but I wanted to do a quick post because Missy from Southern Queen Bee awarded me the "Honest Scrap" award! As with other awards, here are the rules:

1.) Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award. ~ Thanks, Missy!
2.) Share "10 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 they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.

Okay, ten things...let's see...
  1. I wanted to be a veterinarian when I was a little girl. Then I realized I'd have to see blood and stuff. Changed my mind really quick.
  2. My husband and I had been dating six weeks when he asked me to marry him the first time. I turned him down.
  3. My dream vacation is actually a combination of vacations. Driving to the mountains, enjoying them for a few days, then heading down to Disney to have some fun, then over to the beach to relax for a looooong time.
  4. I eat weird things. Not gross things, just weird things.
  5. When I was little, all of my stuffed animals were named Mary. Even the stuffed clown. Which, surprisingly, didn't creep me out.
  6. I dream about what my dream house would look like to help me go to sleep at night.
  7. I wish Sound Man and I could spend more time together. We don't go on enough dates to suit either of us.
  8. It sometimes disappoints me that I never had a little sister for Kiddo. And I'm thinking that by now, if it ain't happened, it ain't gonna happen.
  9. Making tassels is one of the joys of my life!
  10. And since I'm being honest, let me say lastly that I wish my home was as pretty as some of yours. I have parts of my home that I'm very proud of, but there are others that make me cringe when I look at them. Like my kitchen. And my front porch. And my master half bath. But, instead of becoming jealous, I want your blogs to inspire me to do more for my home, to make it the haven God would have it to be. Keep inspiring, ladies, keep inspiring!
Here are the seven lovely ladies I would like to award:
  1. My BFF, Kat at Reflections. How could I not award her with an award about encouragement?
  2. Darlene at Darlene's Days. She always has the sweetest posts about her family, and she always leaves me the sweetest comments.
  3. Katy Lin at The Great Adventure. She and her husband, Austin, are starting a ministry that just blesses my heart!
  4. Richella at Imparting Grace. She has already written a heart felt honest post that I hope you'll read.
  5. Kari & Kijsa at, well, Kari & Kijsa! Not only do they have a beautiful blog, they can also write beautifully, too!
  6. Katie at Intentionally Katie. She is about as honest and transparent a blogger as I've ever read. Not to mention she's a cute preggo.
  7. And finally, Teri Lynne at Pleasing To You. This girl is chock full of encouragement. She never ceases to put a smile on my face. And I bet if you go to her 100th Post, she'll give you something sweet. I laughed. I cried. It moved me. No, seriously.

So, there you have it. My Honest Scrap. I giggle every time I read that. Say it fast and see if you don't, too! Thanks again, Missy!

Thank you, thank you!!! I actually received this lovely award a few weeks ago, so I don't think I could come up with so many honest things again, but I humbly accept, my sweet friend!
