Are you sure it's not honest crap?

Really- some days I think my posts are all crap, not scrap.  Especially as I approach my 100th post and I go back and look at the first 2 months worth.  For the first 2 months, I blogged in hiding - it took 4 weeks for me to even tell my husband what I was doing, much less anyone else.  Then I started to branch out and found a couple of awesome groups like SITS, that introduced me to some of the most amazing people.  I've met women from all walks of life through our blogosphere and some of them I really do admire.

It took a long time to feel like my blog was worth reading - I've watched every follower that adds me and delight in the fact that someone wants to read what I write.  Then all of the sudden I started getting awards - I am not used to awards.  It amazes me everytime I see one - and today I humbley accept these three.

The first comes from Laugh until you Cry.  I recently stumbled across her and have made her blog a daily read.  She has such an adorable family.  Thank you Beth for this award.
Her award to me is Honest Scrap and it comes with rules.
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link to their blog.

2. Share 10 honest things about yourself.
3. Present this award to 7 other whose blogs you find brilliant in design or content.
4. Tell those 7 people they have been awarded.

Truths about me - ha - things you never wanted to know
  • I love my job and the fact that I get to wear jeans everyday to work
  • I am not a morning person, I've never been a morning person.  Somehow having kids made this easier, but it is still not my favorite time of day.
  • Even though I'm not an early morning person - once I do wake up - I can get more done by 10am than I can the rest of the day.
  • It takes me exactly 1 cup of coffee each day to get moving - no more no less.
  • I have very short stubby toes - and they go straight across not at an angle - so no narrow shoes for me!
  • I wanted twins - my dream was to have twin boys and then a girl so that we wouldn't have a middle child. 
  • I'm addicted to caffiene.  I may only have one cup of coffee a day, but then I also have 1 pepsi and many glasses of tea.
  • I'm really mad the new blogger editor doesn't have spell check - because I am the world's crappiest speller.  I've taken to writing my posts in word and then transfering them.
  • Now that I enjoy blogging - I can't believe I haven't been doing it for years.
  • To deal with having all boys at home and at work - I coach Women's Rugby at the local university.

And now for my seven recipients:

The next award comes from Leigh vs. Laundry.  I found this fabulous chick via the crib and have become addicted to her blog.  She has so much fun, and some fabulous pictures.  She gave me the heartfelt award and I take that to be a real honor, thank you Leigh!
I am passing this award on to these five ladies.

 The final award came from Desert Rose Moments.  She is probably one of my newest finds, and as you can tell by my nomination back to her, one of my new faves!  Mom to five, she is always on a roll.  Desert Rose, thank you and come take your award!  The rules of the friends award are
"This award is bestowed on to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers.
Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

And my eight recipents are:

    I am so with you on not being a morning person..and I live in a house full of people that are..early morning people..ugh! And wow, that rugby coaching is awesome! We had a tournament that was hosted in our little town many years ago and it was awesome to watch. There were mens and womens teams, what a rough sport which made me love it even more...and boy did those people party afterwards!
