my first ever blog award...

I have received my first blog award. I am super excited about it...and it is all thanks to the absolutely hilarious Maya over at 'Straitjackets Are Slimming'. Her blog makes me come thisclose to peeing my pants from laughter every time I read it...and she is one honest lady (which I love!).

The Honest Scrap Award comes with a few rules…I have to divulge 10 honest things about myself. Then I have to pass the award on to 7 bloggers that I adore...and who I believe will be 100% truthful!

Everyone likes to say that they 'admire' honesty. I have found that the majority of the time this is not true. I however, do love it. Alright let the honesty commence (I am totally ashamed of some of these) ...

1. I am a bleeding heart liberal. I voted for Barack Obama in the 2008 election. I also voted for George W. Bush in the 2004 election.

2. I re-read the Harry Potter Series every summer. I have read each book over ten times.

3. I find Bill Maher to be incredibly sexy. I am probably the only person who thinks this.

4. I don't want children. I also have no desire to get married. I sometimes feel that those two facts make me a bad person.

5. I have never had my hair dyed. Ever.

6. I judge anyone who wears a hair scrunchie. For real. If I see you rocking one I will automatically assume you have zero fashion sense.

7. I am watching 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' as I type this post.

8. I am a hypochondriac. If you even suggest an illness within a minute I will have convinced myself that I have it. True story.

9. I would never date someone who was younger than me. Or shorter than me.

10. I have an obsession with designer sunglasses. I also examine peoples eye wear to see what brand it is.

There you have it. 10 completely honest facts all about yours truly. Hopefully you all still like me after some of my admissions!

Now it is time for me to invite 7 bloggy pals to receive The Honest Scrap Award. I choose...

Amy from 'My LaLa Land'

Kimberly from 'William & Kimberly'

Allison from 'A Bite of Allison'

Amanda from 'Amanda's Musings'

Ivy from 'Inspirations by Ivy'

Lauren from 'Thats What She Said...'

Vanessa from 'Caramel Covered Photographs'

Ok ladies now it is YOUR turn! All of the 7 I picked will hopefully post their own 10 things on their blog and pass the award along to others! Also, I could only choose 7 people...but I wish I could have picked ALL of you. So, please feel free to comment with at least ONE honest thing about yourself!

Oh my... I just got soooo excited! In case I haven't told you lately, you totally rock!

Umm yeah, I think you are the only person ever to find Bill Maher incredibly sexy. I won't judge though. I also will not date anyone shorter than me, which really isn't difficult because I'm only 5'3. My height rule is that they must be taller than me when I'm wearing heels, which still isn't very tall.

Love your list, can't wait to do mine!!

Ivy said...

FIRST, I am so touched that you listed me. I have enjoyed getting to know you through your blog and tweets!

I have read the Twilight saga twice now and b/c I have New Moon downloaded to my iPod, I have listened to it numerous times. I had serious withdrawal from Edward after I finished the series and that is why I read them all again. This makes me feel like a 'book boyfriend' junkie. I don't care, I am in love!

That is embarrassing... but it was fun to type out loud. The New Moon movie comes out soon (12 days but who's counting)

I just finished listening to Harry Potter 7 driving home from my road trip. I love me some Harry Potter. :)

This was fun! You should do this more often. :)

SJ said...

I LOVE Bill Maher! I think he's amazing. He makes me laugh every time I watch Real Time.

I love me some Harry Potter too, I don't think I've read them all 10 times, but maybe 5ish each? I wanted to reread them all this summer but I never got around to it.

This is such a fun idea! Honesty is the best policy.

Stacy Dean said...

congratulations! bloggy awards are so foreign to me! Like...who are the judges, and do they scour the blogdom in search of winners?! crazy.

and i love the honesty. i whole-heartedly agree on the scrunchy.

maya said...

Yes. People who clain to "admire honesty" are usually big fat liars! I suspect that's why my first to second date ratio is holding around 10 to 1.
ARGHHHH!! BUSH?! That was brave honesty!! totally why you needed this one.

kelleidoscope said...

Well I don't wear hair scrunchies but I still have no fashion sense! :)

Lauren Elizabeth said...

Oh! Oh! Oh, I'm so excited! I've never received an award before and now 2 in one day (I received one from another blog too), I'm overwhelmed!

Love me some HP. Oh yes.
I don't want children either. I stick to spoiling the niece, works out great for me!
Vito is younger than me (by less than a year) but he is super taller than me so it makes up for it.
I'm a huge hypochondriac. I'm convinced when I have horrible pains that I'm dying or have cancer. Yup, I'm awesome.

Ivy said...

I did my post. I don't know if anyone is reading it b/c I only have 2 comments, one by me explaining my bashful computer and one from a sweet blogger....
Anyway... wanted you to know so you could stop by and read it.
Thanks for the award!
