What a sweet surprise I received from my blogging buddy and fellow “B” Club member, Kat, at Just A Beach Kat. Kat is one of the first friends I made in the blogging world, and I love keeping up with her exciting life! Here are the rules for the award:

1) Present this award to others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.
2) Tell those people they’ve been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.
3) Share “10 Honest Things” about myself.


1. I buy too many magazines. And, I do not like to throw them away. So usually I will go through the magazine and pull out pages that I want to keep. Which, in all honesty, does absolutely no good, because I can never find the torn out pages when I go looking for them.

2. I think every occasion calls for a little chocolate!

3. I LOVE pretty paper! I could spend hours in the scrapbooking aisles looking at the decorative papers…and I want it all! I like old paper, and wrinkled paper, and torn paper, and even brown paper bag.

4. I have watched The Young and The Restless since I was in college. I never miss it…I have my DVR set to tape it every day. Sometimes I’ll just watch the whole week on Saturday. Goes a lot faster when you can FF through the dumb commercials! I used to watch All My Children, but it got too ‘out there’…even for a soap!

5. Why should ‘procrastination’ be seen as a problem? If it gets done before the deadline…it’s done!

6. I eat crackers in bed.

7. If I were to light all the candles (new and used) that I have in my house…it would set off all the fire alarms and/or burn the house down!

8. I can not swim very well…in deep water…or shallow water, actually. But, I am a champion floater…on a raft…especially the ones with the cup holder built into the arm.

9. I have a new mattress…a Tempurpedic! It is wonderful! It is fabulous! It is worth every mega buck we spent for it! I think I should probably spend more time in bed so we will get our money’s worth out of it!

10. I started my Christmas shopping last June…but, I won’t finish till the week of Christmas! Trouble staying on task, you know!

And, I pass this on to…
