An Award?! Pour Moi?!

The lovely Montana Musings of a Southern Girl has just bestowed upon me, my very first award! I am beyond excited about this!

The rules are as follows:

1) Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design.

2) Show the 7 winners names and links on your blog, and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with "Honest Scrap." Well, there's no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.

3) List at least 10 honest things about yourself.

ONE I knocked my four front teeth out ice skating the day after I got my braces but on.

TWO I am super, super OCD about my bedding being straight. I get very irritable if it gets messed up - I will even get up in the middle of the night to make sure it's straight.

THREE I cannot go to sleep unless the closet door is closed. Anywhere.

FOUR I love, love to cook and bake. Despite the cumin-cinnamon incident (yes, I know which is which, but I just grabbed the wrong one), I rarely fix things that are inedible.

FIVE I am overly competitive. I will make anything into a game, and now some friends won't play with me because of it (Lobster, can we pleeeease play Mall Madness? I promise I won't be so serious).

SIX I used to have a terrible lisp and speech impediment. I couldn't say my r's. If you watch home videos from my younger days you will not be able understand one thing I say. Apparently, I was unaware of this, because it didn't make me stop talking whatsoever.

SEVEN I love sports, but I am not a natural athlete. I've been on many, many sports teams, but only because I worked so hard to make it (see number 5). I think I was probably the worst one on every single team.

EIGHT I'm addicted to celebrity gossip. I even struggle to work out now without a celebrity mag (I do not call them tabloids) on my machine.

NINE I work out all the time (see number 8), and I get very upset if I miss a day.

TEN I am a classic Leo and middle child (oh dear). I am a consummate people-pleaser, and I thrive on approval from others. Sad, but true.

Now, I tag...

Annnnd anyone who hasn't gotten this. I've seen it floating around the blogosphere lately. :-)

Those are all very true. Especially number 5. We cannot play Mall Madness together. I might go for a game of Apples to Apples though. Just the two of us!
