Thought Provoking

Susan from Susan's Littlte Scraps, a blog I follow and you can check out right on the side there, gave me an honest scrapper award. I need to write 10 honest things about myself and pass it on to 3 other scrappers who have blogs I love.

Well on to the task at hand -

First and foremost, the hardest thing I ever did in my entire life was carry my first child. I was 16 and I hid it till 3 wks before she was born. I gained only 9 lbs, and I used a wire hanger to pull the zipper up on my size 5 jeans. Real rough, hard on my parents, but I did it, and I think if there is one thing I do good in this world, it's being a Mama.

2- I hate, and I mean hate, people who can't drive. Ask my kids, I let the curse words fly even with them in the car and they giggle something fierce at what comes outta my mouth!

3- Sadly, I have no patience at all. Not good but it is a trait I am stuck with. I thank my Dad lovingly for that one ;)

4- I am somewhat anal in the fact that I have to do certain things the same way all the time. Well maybe that's ocdeeish. Like go down the supermarket aisles the same way, if I don't I really feel jacked up.

5- I luuuuuuv to sing, and I can't sing to save my life!!! But I do it and I like to do it loud! The kids will yell, "Mom, puhleeeeease!! Heehee, can't help myself.

6- I am excessively possesive of what I perceive to belong to me. That goes for my Hubby, hands down, don't let me catch you eyeing him or I'll poke em out! My Mother, my brothers, and my friends. My kids, well I have 6, you can have em ;) them I'm happy to share.

7- I hate chipped nail and toe polish! Oh my when I see toes with chipped polish, I wanna run over with a cotten ball and remover!

8- Bugs scare the living crumbs outta me! I hate all insects and will cry at the drop of a dime if I think one is in my hair.

9- Liver makes me sick. I hate liver. My Mom would make it when I was little and it would smell good, and I'd be like "Wow let me give it a shot", uh, no, pasty yukky kaka texture, why does something that smells good while cooked taste so gross?!

10- I have a new found respect for those who have lost a parent, spouse, or heaven forbid, child. I never realized how grief becomes weaved into the fabric of your life till my Dad. I thank God for my Husband and wonderful friends who help me everyday on this difficult journey of mourning.

Well there ya go 10 honest things about me. Now I will pass it on to,get ready for this one, Tim Holtz, I just love him and his designs, Dedra Long, who has Between Us and Jennifer Priest of Hydrangea Hippo. These people are phenomenal scrappers in the industry. You can view all their blogs from the side bar on mine :)


  1. Liver - chew, chew, chew - never let it touch your tounge - swallow. Eat it fast - hold your nose. I could down a helping of liver in a matter of minutes. ITA with you on this one! What was with those mothers and their liver cooking???? Thanks for playing along!

  2. Oh this was so great. Kinda glad, (really kinda glad) Lisa and I were not in the car with you and Serene in NYC. I think we would have laughed until we died crying!

    This was great. I posted mine twice on my blog and it didn't take. PUt it on Lora's and didn't know it was an honor, doi, and so I think I lost the award. What do you do with your young girls and the fingernail polish, oh, I just have to bite my tongue and let them learn...oh, oh, it's one of the harder parts of mothering. Your mom and dad raised a wonderful lady! YOur dad is always singing to you from heaven!

  3. Ditto on 2, 8, 9 and 10, especially #10. {{{{{Hugs}}}}}
