I got my first award.... A Scrap Award.

Thrift and Chic Mom has generously bestowed up me the Honest Scrap Award

What is an Honest Scrap Award? In the words of Vivian Zabel at Brain Cells and Bubble Wrap:

"Scrap means left overs, fragments, discarded material. Many times truth and honesty is discarded material, considered fragments and left over. So, we need to tell it like it is, and let the scraps fall where they will."
Honorees are to first list 10 honest things about ourselves - and make it interesting, even if we have to dig deep! Second, we are to pass the award on to 7 bloggers we feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.

So here we go 10 honest things about me:

1. Don't get me laughing too hard, I tend to leak....
2. I use to think it was so cool I could jump off the ground while lying on my back. (Hard to explain over typing)
3. When I was young, VERY young (like Jr. High), I loved to make jewelry out of safty pins and light bulbs. I have moved up a few levels with my jewelry now!
4. Also when I was young and in Jr. high, again, my mom use to pay me to NOT wear my homemade jewelry and my combat boots. The offer always went up when I attempted to wear these things to church.
5. I hate ferrets. One attacked me and my friend back in HS.
6. I gained even more weight after I had my first baby. Very scary. I am now 20 lbs less than my heaviest stage in life, but I got a little ways to go!
7. I am a little obsessed with make-up. (OK A LOT!)
8. I tend to get moody on vacations. Don't ask why, I realize it's a vacation.
9. After seeing Coyote Ugly several times me and my friends would go to this club and dance on the bar table. (we thought we were so cool!) I am sure we looked ridiculous and were probably showing off. What we did as kids right?
10. I honestly think I got extremely lucky to marry the man I did. I am a much harder person to live with then he. And you should have seen the other guys I dated before him, minus a few normals.

Well now you know 10 random things about me and I am happy to bestow this award on the following fabulous bloggers:

Kristin at An Ordinary Life!
Sweet Life in the Valley!
Brandi at All About Us
Sandier Pastiers
Ann at Ann Again and Again

Congratulations and thanks for thinking of me when you passed it on!

From experience, I make sure to go to the toilet first before going to any function that might involve laughing. :-)
