I usually don't do this, but CynthiaK at Crumbs in the Minivan gave me one of the Honest Scrap awards and I thought the accompanying meme was fun enough to participate in and pass along. Thanks, Cynthia! So without further ado, here are the rules:

*Say thank you and give a link to the presenter of the award
*Share “10 Honest Things” about myself
*Present the award to 10 other bloggers whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design or to those who have encouraged me
*Be sure to tell the 10 bloggers chosen that you are giving them the Honest Scrap award and provide the guidelines for them

Here are 10 honest things about me. I said "honest," not necessarily "interesting!"

1. I taught myself to read when I was 3 1/2. So I skipped kindergarten, which I now regret because kindergarten is the best year of school!

2. My undergraduate major was psychology. I like to analyze everything.

3. I don't really like massages. They just don't make me feel relaxed.

4. My first real haircut was when I was thirty. It's a long story, but basically I had never cut my hair before because of religious reasons, and then my beliefs changed.

5. I never met a carb I didn't like. Well, maybe Cool Ranch Doritos (no offense if you like those. I like nacho Doritos.)

6. I have read every book C.S. Lewis wrote.

7. I would love to one day have a two-story library, like the one in Beauty and the Beast.

8. I read cookbooks for fun. Sometimes I actually cook a recipe out of one of them.

9. I never skipped a college class for no reason. Not once. (I am such a nerd.)

10. I don't really enjoy hot baths or hot tubs, because I get overheated easily and then my head itches. No massages, no bubble baths--I really need to find something that helps me relax (and that doesn't involve eating a bag of Hershey's Kisses!)

And now for the 10 bloggers to whom I am giving this award:

Killing a Fly With a Ukelele Is Probably the Wrong Thing To Do

All About Your Child

I don't mind if you don't want to post your own list. Just know that I enjoy knowing you through your blog!



  1. Thank you sooooooooooo much!

    Hey hey... I was prepared to read a boring list *laugh*, but there are some things on your list which were an eye-opener for me...
    Yup, like you've said it, "not necessarily "interesting!", it was MORE than that to me!
    Nice! Love knowing you a little more...

  2. Thank you! That's so sweet!

    The thing about your first haircut being when you were 30 was pretty much the most interesting thing I've ever READ. I've known people who belonged to denominations like that, and I would love to read about the process of changing from that.

  3. I don't care of massages either. I definitely don't feel relaxed and it feels like they're beating up on me. I thought it was just me :)

  4. I'm so honored! Thank you :D

    P.S. Funny, I would also LOVE to have a two-storey library but did, in fact, skip many many classes in college...

  5. Oh Thank you!!!

    The library in Beauty and Beast always made me drool, so fabulous.

    I don't like Nacho Dorittos, must be Cool Ranch.

  6. I can identify with #1. I taught myself to read at age 4. When I went to kindergarten the next year, my parents tried to explain to the nun that I could read. She didn't believe them. By the end of that school year I was reading chapter books. Haven't looked back since!

  7. Thank you for the award! I feel guilty accepting it since I've almost stopped blogging, but I promise to try to do better.

    Can I come and visit your 2 story library when you get one? I hope it has the ladder that goes all the way to the top that moves along the wall.

  8. Oh yeah, massages are the second worst torture out there, topped only by HAIRDRESSERS with the washing and tangling and combing and ripping and pulling...

    Do none of their other clients feel pain? And why am I too sooky to mention that they're KILLING me?
