My First Blog Award!

So, over the weekend I was awarded the Honest Scrap award by Jacky from The Sweetest Petunia. This award is for bloggers who are honest in their writing!

Thanks so much! {I even put my foot in my mouth and said that I thought blog awards were cheesy.... but Jacky was kind enough to look past my strategically placed foot ~ Thanks Jacky!}

The rules here are to pass the award on to 7 bloggers who I think are honest in their blogging and to list 10 honest things about myself.

Okay, so 10 honest things about me? Here goes - It won't be hard since they are already in my sidebar.... {look at that, ahead of the game!}

1. My husband actually taught me how to make a bed "the correct way".

2. I spent most of my days as a child, frolicking in the woods and creek behind my house.

3. I am not very smart... I have to study my brains out to "retain" anything.

4. I am left-handed, and have horrible penmanship.

5. I took computer classes in school to "hide-out" from any sort of public speaking.

6. With that being said, I am scared to death to teach a Ladies Bible study in the Fall. But God's grace is sufficient and His strength is perfect. {Side note: My first class was this morning, and by God's grace, it went well!}

7. I never thought I would make a decent homemaker ~ I had no interest in making my home inviting, cleaning, cooking - until I got married!

8. I love sports, games, any sort of "competition".

9. While I was pregnant with my daughter, I craved Lime Tortilla chips dipped in cottage cheese. Yes, I ate it!

10. I have Hyperthyroidism, and have struggled with my weight my whole life! It is a constant battle I face.

There ya go! As for the 7 nominees...

1. Amy from I'm Just Sayin
2. Jen from ThriftyNorthwestMom
3. Sisterlisa from AGMinistries
4. Tiffany from Tea With Tiffany
5. Linda from Linda's Patchwork Quilt
6. Jennifer from For Such A Time As This
7. Rachel from Young Homemakers


  1. Thank you so much for this award. How sweet of you to think of me. I will be posting this award on my blog to pass on this kindness soon.

    I enjoyed your honest scrap top ten... :) Cravings are something, aren't they? The things we eat when pregnant. I can't remember what mine were. See my memory isn't good either. And I don't know how to make a good looking bed.

    Hugs from Colorado Springs,


  2. Congratulations!

  3. Thank you so much, Traci, for the award. My open heart will let people know that I need prayer. I so believe in the power of prayer.

    God bless you and thanks again so much.
