My First Award

I am excited and extremely happy to say that I have gotten my first blog award. YEAH! It came from Samantha over at Apple Juice and Milk and you should really go check out her blog! It is one that I have stumbled upon by accident, but I have been reading ever since!

Like any other award, there are some rules to follow and they are as follows:
1) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.
2) Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving the award.
3) Share "10 Honest Things" about myself.

So, here are the lucky ones that I stalk I read and find interesting. Honestly, I follow so many blogs, but these are a few that I feel the need to read on a daily basis for their humor, their photography, and well even just because they make me smile.
Megan at Just Another Day in Paradise
Annie at A Stone's Throw Away from Insanity
Danielle at Our Happy Life
Brandy at You Don’t Know
Rayli at 4 Kids & A Large Coffee
The Butler Family
Nikki at The Chocolate Mousse

To you seven.... I give to you... the HONEST SCRAP AWARD

NOW, drum roll please the top 10 Honest Things about ME:
1. I am a blog / facebook addict
2. I LOVE to cook for large groups of friends or family
3. I enjoy scrap booking both with paper & with digital
4. I love to decorate cakes, even though they never turn out just perfect
5. I really need to acquire more patience for my teenage daughter’s habits & attitude (if not she will not make it to her 20’s)
6. I am totally OCD
7. I am a list maker - Sometimes I make lists of lists that I need
8. I once was a pre – k / kindergarten teacher, then I wigged out and became an accountant
9. I totally believe in setting down as a family every night and eating a home-cooked meal together
10. I am a candle Scentsy freak and I now sell it too AND I even made a blog for it!

Anyhow, thanks again Samantha!
