Honest Scrap

Once upon a time a wonderful friend and blogger, Daisy, awarded an award to some fellow friends and bloggers....

And this blogger nearly forgot. It isn't that I didn't appreciate, or feel thankful. It has just been my blog has taken the back burner for a while.

Here are the rules that you agree to when you accept this award . . .

"When you receive the prize, you must write a post showing it, together with the name of who has given it to you, and link them back. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in their content or design. Show their names and links and leave them a comment informing that they were prized with 'Honest Weblog'. List [if you can and/or dare] at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on!"

Should they choose to accept, in no particular order, I nominate these honest bloggers:

1. Leslie at Adventures in Randomness - - She is not afraid to put herself out there. Her blog is real life as it happens. I love her honesty of thoughts, beliefs, fears and accomplishments...

2. Mel at Mel A Dramatic Mommy -- Check out the Jan 15 post. One cannot be any more honest than this :-) and anyone brave enough to share this is worthy of an award! hehe!

3. John Deere Mom -- From P**P, to farm animals, puppy trouble, and other random, honest bit of real life, this blog is full of smiles!

4. Michie at Seeking Imperfection -- The ups and downs of buying a house, balancing a job, a family and quest to be imperfect. It is wonderful, honest, real life stuff!

okay, so the "rules" say list 7. Well, I'm listing 4... and starting my list of 10 Honest things about myself...

1) I hate following rules. :-)
2) My puppy is one of the family. I NEVER thought I would be one of those people.
3) Husband and I dated starting when we were 14... crazy. However it is amazing how much we have grown together and shaped each others lives (in such a positive way).
4) I am a perfectionist. However I tend to find myself thinking, If it cannot be perfect I will not do it at all. This gets me in trouble...
5) My dream would be to be a stay at home wife/mom. I never thought I would feel that way, but the thought has crossed my mind.
6) I love to play "hostess", however often dislike going to other peoples events.
7) I regret not continuing to take piano lessons.
8) I want to participate in a marathon someday!
9) I enjoy cleaning my house.
10) I miss my grandma.


  1. What a great list! I love the first one. Me too.

  2. Well, thank you for the award, Mrs. Crazy Daisy! It's much appreciated. I'll mention it on my blog sometime soon. :)

  3. Thank you! I still can't believe I put that in print. I am behind on my awards but will try to get it done soon!

  4. Thank you so much! I, too, am a perfectionist and miss my grandma. BUT being a stay at home wife/mom? You can keep that one for yourself! ;)

  5. Thank you so much for the award and the kind words about my sadly neglected blog. It is often neglected because of that perfectionism problem - maybe we January 22nd babies have that problem? LOL
