One of my blog friends Kelli has decided that I deserve this Honest Scrap Award, and coming from her it is a real honor. Kelly is an encouraging, fun-loving, all around great gal with 2 of the cutest kids ever. You should swing by and see her when you have a few mins. because she is the real deal.
Here's how this works:
In accepting this award, I need to do the following:
1) Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award.
2) Share "ten honest things" about myself.
3) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.
4) Tell those 7 people that they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.
10 Random/Honest Things About Me:

1. I am the oldest of 3 kids. My sister and I are almost 2 years apart and my brother is 7 years younger. I am the typical oldest child, a people pleaser.

2. I have a college degree in Business Management, and am a licensed cosmetologist. Currently though, I call myself a kitchen beautician because I only do hair from home. I always thought I wanted to own my own salon, but as with most people, my ambitions have changed as I have had children. Being with them is what is most important to me at this stage of my life.

3. I am a carbaholic. I could eat dessert or bread for every.single.meal. I'm talking only desserts and bread too, no veggies, no meat, etc. Since that is not a healthy eating plan, I do eat choke down other healthier foods.
4. I am fickle by nature. You know that saying "a rolling stone gathers no moss". That's me. I grow tired of things quickly and am always changing things.
5. I can not stand for my food to touch. Especially if the foods are runny, like vegetables or beans. I know, I'm a wierdo.

6. I am impatient and LOVE shortcuts. I wish I was not this way, but it is just in my nature. If there is a quicker way to do something, I'll find it. If something is gonna take a long time to do, I will probably not take it on. I want quick results.

7. I met Lonnie in college and we have been married for 6 years. One of my sorority sisters dated a guy he played football with, and that is how we met. He is my soulmate and I love him completely. He is an only child and only grandchild. Our 2 boys are the only grandchildren on both sides. That is why they are wrotten!
8. I'm a busybody. I get it from my momma. I love to go and see and do. I have passed that gene on to my boys, especially Connor.
9. I LOVE to shop. I mean I could shop every single day and never get tired of it. Bargains make by blood rush and I can always sniff out a good bargain.
10. I let my boys climb all over our furniture. I mean serious rough housing like doing flips off the back and jumping from the end tables. They are wild and rambunctious, but somehow they know they can only do this at home and in the family room. They never attempt to set up an "obstacle course" at anyone else's house, thank goodness!
I tag... Stacie, Amanda, Gwen, Hat Chick, Sarah, Krista, and Michelle because they are blogs I enjoy and friends I have made via this blog. Thanks for being the real deal ladies!

Thanks for the kind words and for playing along. I love, love carbs too and hate my food to touch. Yes, it has something to do with veggies being runny. Exactly!
