you shouldn't have - {awards}

I was so honored to receive two awards from a new bloggy friend a couple of weeks ago (Emily, I am sorry it has taken me so long). Emily over at My Memory Keepsakes is such a sweetheart. Her little man, Lincoln, is adorable!


The first award is a Friends Award.

"These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."


The next award I received was an Honest Scrap Award.

Honest Scrap award:

A) First list 10 honest things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep!

B) Pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.


10 things about me:
  1. I cannot stand for a waitress (or a girl younger than me) to call me honey, sweetie, hun, dear, etc.
  2. I enjoy doing laundry...but not so much putting it all away.
  3. This is my absolute, most favorite blog every. Meg is awesome and I want to be her when I grow up. Her pictures, her crafts, her recipes and her decorating are exceptional.
  4. I honestly don't like to cook all that much; but I am trying to get better about it. I just have such a hard time setting aside all the time that it takes to cook. Crocpots rock!
  5. I hate my boobs! I have wanted a reduction since high school. { Glad I married a man who likes them, though. :o) }
  6. Spray paint is one of the best inventions ever!
  7. My husband is the only man that I have ever kissed romantically.
  8. I relieve stress by doing crafts. Hopefully I will be able to start sharing more of those on here. I just have to remember to take pictures.
  9. I have a BS in Education. I am certified to be an elementary teacher and also hold a certification in early childhood education.
  10. If you haven't seen the movie "Fireproof" yet you are missing out on something amazing.

Now, I pass both of these awards to...


Alyssa - The Anderson Family
Renee - Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice
Nicol - Classy and Sophisticated
Emily - Photos, Fingerprints, Crayons & Coffee
Denise - Sunflowers, Chocolate and Little Boys
Chasity, Shauna and Deborah - The Wild Raspberry
Rechelle - Walnuthaven Cottage
Kalee - Une Vie Chic and Crunchy Chic
