Honest Scrap Award

My friend Kristina over at 3 Under 4 just gave me the Honest Scrap Award! Thanks Kristina for linking my blog on your sight and giving a few comments about it. Kristina always shares her lively experiences of being a wife and mom, which never cease to make me laugh. :)

Here are the rules for the award:

1. Must thank the person who gave you the award and list their blog and link it.

2. Share "10 Honest things" about yourself.

3. Present this award to 7 others whose blogs you find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged you.

4. Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving the award.

My 10 Honest Things About Myself:

10. I hate making decisions. It does not matter whether its a decision to buy a house, or where to eat out for dinner. I will undoubtedly have a very difficult time making one. (And when I do make a decision, I usually will question whether I made the right one.) :)

9. I have a habit of constantly buying books even though I still have a bunch on my shelf that I need to read.

8. I eat PB and Jelly sandwiches almost every day for lunch.

I cannot grow plants for the life of me. I try super hard, but I end up killing them. (My ivy plant is currently in rehab with my "green thumb" co-worker.)

6. I'm addicted to Post-It Notes. Any size, shape, or color........I have them.

5. I'm a Fox News and political junkie. (Thanks Grandma H.)

4. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

3. I have too many hobbies and not enough time to enjoy them: Scrapbooking, Reading, Baking/Cake Making, and Cross-stitching. (Not many people these days do that last one anymore!) :)

2. I collect Cherished Teddies, but I should probably stop because I have so many!

1. I never experienced a real Christmas tree until I got married. Now it has become a wonderful tradition!

Blogs That Have Encouraged Me and Are Brilliant in Design and/or Content

1. The LPM Blog - This blog's contributors are Beth Moore and her two daughters Amanda and Melissa. If you ever want encouragement for your day or your walk with Christ, this is the blog to go to. Every post lifts my spirits!

2. The Heart of a Writer - Her writings are brillant and I love the honesty that pours from her heart in every single one of them.

3. Melissa's Merry Mayhem - Her blog is comical, yet inspriational in her everyday experiences as a mom and homemaker. She also is involved in some very creative projects!

4. Comings Communique - Stories from the Brazilian mission field!

5. Divine Satisfaction - Great theological posts that provoke some intense thought.

6. Wise Bread - Lots of ideas for frugal living and stretching your dollar. They also inform you of daily internet specials and sales!
