Gettin' Scrappy

I have to say a great big ole' thank you to Token Fat Friend for bestowing on me the Honest Scrap award.

The rules are:
1. “The Honest Scrap” award must be shared!
2. The recipient has to tell 10 true things about themselves.
3. The recipient has to pass along this prestigious award to 10 more bloggers.
4. Those 10 bloggers all have to be notified they have been given this award.
5. Those 10 bloggers should link back to the blog that awarded them.

The 10 things about me:
  1. I live in Trussville, AL in a small neighborhood that I love. I have 3 sweet widows that live next door and in the 2 houses across the street who are so sweet to us.
  2. I am an AVID Yankees fan. Jay and I have been to New York twice to see them play. (CONGRATULATIONS TO THEM FOR WINNING THE AL EAST!!!)
  3. I love to read and I consider my books treasures.
  4. I've had Jury Duty 6 times.
  5. My fingernails grow at the speed of light which is great, but that means my toenails do too, which isn't so great. I have to cut them all the time.
  6. I am fascinated with people's lives. I love to watch reality TV, read celebrity gossip, READ YOUR BLOGS....
  7. I lost my wedding ring a few weeks ago and it makes me so sad.
  8. I recently committed to myself to take better care of my skin.
  9. I sponsor a 5 year old little girl in Brazil named Laura Stephany through World Vision. She is the cutest little thing.
  10. I'm becoming more like my mother everyday - and that's a GOOD thing!

Now my 10 Recipients!

Congrats on your award!! Jury duty 6 times? Sounds like my mom. She got it every year. Great list!

Mama Hen said...

So sorry about your wedding ring. Girl, isn't that the second one you have lost?

Now I have to think hard about 10 things!!!

Mollie said...

OK, yeah, so you're going to have to tell me how to "link" to the post...

Lianne said...

6--SIX-TIMES? You must be the BEST juror EVER! I would die.

I am sad about your ring. What a bummer! I am laughing at your hubby's comment, though!

I'll have to be thinking about how I'm going to answer these questions.

oh losing your wedding ring breaks my heart!!!

but jury duty breaks it even more! i've never even had it once! six times?! you should get an award!

Paulina said...

thanks for tagging me!! I will get on it soon!! You are awesome!

PS: So sad that you lost your wedding ring!! My husband lost his about a year and a half ago. It was so sad!!! We were at the beach tossing a football at each other in the shallow water, when he caught the ball with his left hand his ring just flew off!!! we searched and searched, but never found it. I think I cried a little, so I know your pain.

On a good note, he loooves his new ring!!

Rachel said...

Thanks for the award!

I've NEVER been called for jury duty and have always wished I would be, but also know I'd probably not wish that after having served....
