Blog Award

I've been given the Honest Scrap award from my internet friend, Shanny. She's had what we'll just call a "rough patch" lately, so for her to think of me right now means a lot.

The rules for this award:
1) Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design.
2) 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.
3) List at least 10 honest things about yourself.

10 Honest Things About Me:

1. I prefer things in my world to be orderly and in place. Call it OCD (or CDO if you prefer alphabetical like me), but it keeps me calm.
2. I've watched "All My Children" for over 27 years. It's crazy, but I still DVR it every night.
3. I never cared for animals much until I met DH and then our pet explosion occurred!
4. I fell down two flights of stairs when I was two and have been terrified of heights since. I used to freak out sitting on the doctor's table. To this day, I can't handle anything much higher than a chair.
5. I started babysitting at age nine. I can't imagine leaving my newborn with a child the same as my students. I must've been pretty mature at that age to stay with such tiny, little babies.
6. I did very non-pro runway modeling when I was in my early teens. I had a portfolio and everything. ha!
7. Last night I had hot dogs (almost burned with lots of mustard - yum!), mac & cheese, and chardonnay for dinner. Believe it or not, it's a comfort food meal for me. I put the K in klassy, baby!
8. If I have a daughter someday with straight hair, I'm not sure I'll know what to do. I can style curly hair, but straight hair might be hard for me.
9. I make friends very easily. Sometimes TOO easily! I can get along with anyone with whom I choose to get along.
10. I have a severely handicapped brother named Jeffrey who is my hero. He has a piece of my heart that NOBODY will ever have. Ever. I claim Jeff and my baby brother (Michael) as partly my own because I helped raise them. My mom agrees. :)

I'm passing this award on to some of my favorite friends and favorite bloggers!

Of course I think of you and my other blog/bump friends, you girls keep me going!

Some day you'll have to post some pics from your portfolio with us, that must have been some experience! Your brothers are blessed to have you =)

I love mac n' cheese, too! BigB thinks I'm nuts. We bought a big case of that organic stuff at Costc.HO and its just not the same as the classic blue box.

I left you the same award my love! You didn't see it? :(

Ok, I have now overshared! :) thanks for the tag, you gave me something to do last night. I had to rack my brain for one last honest thing (I changed out #6, it just wasn't "good enough").

A hot dog isn't good unless it's smothered in mustard.

All My Children, Kristin? We need to have an intervention. :) I used to watch DOOL, but haven't in ages. I bet if I tuned in today though, I'd be able to pick up where I left off.
