Honest Scrap Award

I have been given the Honest Scrap Award by Surviving Baby: Confessions of an Aspiring Mommy and from Christy at A Piece of the Pearsons ! Thanks to you both! Here are the rules:

1. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs who 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 have won the Honest Scrap award.

I hope none of you have already been chose, if so, SORRY!!!
1. Mary Beth @ 3 Pairs of Feet
2. Krista @ J & K
3. Kerry @ Making Coyne
5. Lauren @ Green Family

3. List at least 10 honest things about yourself.

This is going to be tough after reading so many other people's interesting posts. Sorry if it is a little boring, but I guess my life has been pretty normal!

1. I know my credit card number. I can recite it from memory along with the expiration date and 3 digit security code too. I guess that just means that I shop a little too much online!

2. I am super clumsy. My brother constantly made fun of me for this when we were young, actually he still does!!! Oddly enough though, I have never had stitches or a broken bone (except a toe here and there.)

3. I teach at the same school I attended and now my living children go there too. It was kind of weird going back there at first, I even work with several of the teachers who taught me!

4. My husband and I started dating when I was 17. We got married when I was almost 22 and we had Brady when I was 23. After 18 years of being together I still love him...usually!

5. I completed a half marathon a couple years ago. I barely trained for this as we were right in the middle of selling a house, buying a house, and remodeling a house, so needless to say it wasn't a priority. However, I completed it in under 3 hours and received my Tiffany's necklace at the end!

6. I enjoy cooking, but have done very little of it since losing Sophia & Ellie. Now that I am back at work I have just started cooking regularly again since we are back into a routine.

7. I did not plan on being a teacher in college even though I always played school when I was little. My degree is in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance. Sometimes I am still not sure of my choices here.

8. I often eat the same foods over and over again until I get tired of them. Then I will start on something else until I get tired of that. Then I go back to the previous foods...and the cycle begins again!

9. I don't really enjoy talking on the phone very much. Actually I am not a big talker IRL at all. I listen A LOT and take things in, but I figure if I don't have something important to add, then I just don't really need to say anything.

10. If you read my last post you know I make jewelry. But I also try to sew. I am not very good at it, but I still like doing it...sometimes. My sister-in-law is a wonderful seamstress, but I don't think I will ever be as good as her. I also make hair bows, tutus, and photo cards. I wish I was good at photography, painting, and drawing, but I guess a girl can't have it all!

That's it...I warned you it was going to be boring!


  1. Thanks for the nomination, Tina! I'll get to work on my 10 things... :)

  2. I am kind of clumsy too, but have never broken a bone so far. You sound pretty interesting to me.

  3. I know my credit card numbers too-hehehe!! i guess i shop too much online too :-))

    wow- can't believe you teach at the same school you went to! I did some work experience while I was still at highschool at my primary school- and with some of the same teachers who taught me!!!
    I started dating my husband at 17 too!! We've been together 10 yrs and married for 6 :-)...not a big fan of talking on the phone either-heehee.

    thanks for sharing- nice to know a bit more about you :-))

  4. The credit card number thing made me smile.

    Must be very strange teaching at the same school you attended. Good though too, kind of like completing the circle?!

    And you've completed a half marathon! Gah, I must stop reading all these bloggers who run. You guys make me feel so unhealthy!

  5. I give Kudos to people who run. I am so not a runner. That's great that you compelted a half marathon.

  6. Great to read about you--and you are NOT boring!

  7. hehehe, number 4, how cute.
    and i'm pretty clumsy too ;)

  8. Not boring!! Honest, and thats what its about right? Thanks for sharing sweetie :) Love nan xo
