No, no, not any of the many contests at Pioneer woman's site. I won a blogging award from ShortyMom. Thank you. I strive to keep all my scrap honest. Shortymom is one of my favorite new reads. Especially now that I know she is shy in real life. It just makes the things she shares that much more meaningful.

These are the particulars:

Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design.
  1. Mamamia
  2. Hulagirl
  3. Amimental
  4. Amahoney
  5. Sara M
  6. Steph R
  7. Sara D-she is an AMAZING photographer!!

I'll leave comments later (maybe)-but you know who you are!!

Show the winners names and links on your blog, and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with “Honest Scrap.” There’s no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.

List at least 10 honest things about yourself:

  1. My phobias are heights, bridges and water. Cincinnati is a scary city to me all because of that bridge!! The bridge tragedy in Minneapolis confirmed all those fears in a very terrifying way.
  2. I think drugs suck and they are the root of the mess our country is in.
  3. I cry a little everytime I hear the phrase, "I don't vote because all politicians are crooks." or really any excuse preceded by "I don't vote."
  4. I would rather read than talk but I don't allow myself to do it. People over fiction when it is possible and they are conversational.
  5. I am VERY easy to scare in a "BOO!" kind of way, but not easily frightened in other ways.
  6. As I get older, I am also getting more introverted. I now enjoy solitude-especially in crowds and it used to terrify me to be alone anywhere-anytime.
  7. Having children improved me in so many ways. I would not know where to start the list.
  8. I love my children and I am not happy about the world they are growing up in. Our country is becoming a country that no longer protects its children from anything. The songs, commercials, TV programs, art, and cartoons geared at kids makes me crazy!!
  9. My best friends are also honest scrappers. I love people who are real. Really real. No pretense.
  10. Jesus, not church, is the key to life. Religion has hurt alot of people, but Jesus is the answer to everything. Find a church where you can find Jesus and the people will still hurt you but Jesus will teach the gift of giving and receiving forgiveness. You will also realize that everyone hurts someone whether they like it or not. Not meaning to doesn't change the hurt.

From one honey to another, thank you for thinking of me.


And we have MUCH in common....

1. Just typing the word "heights" makes my palms and feet get all sweaty.

2. Me too.

6. I told Shannon just the other day, "I don't really like people anymore." LOL!:)

7. When I come to the Kentucky Blogger's Convention (*hint*hint*), we'll talk more about this subject. This comment would be ridiculously long if I got started here.;)

9. Me too!

10. Another topic for the Kentucky Blogger's Convention (*hint*hint*). This is an issue that my broken heart is dealing with right now.

Thanks again.
You are "a honey" too!

God Bless,

i find it ridiculous to blame drugs as being the root of our problems as a county

ShortyMom said...

1. I know a lot of people who have this fear since that bridge collapsed.

2. I think drugs have a big hand in the way things are going today.

5. The kids love it when someone gets me with a good Boo!

8. I totally agree!
