I’ve seen blog awards go around before, but have never received one. Not to say I ever expected to, I’m just saying.

Imagine my surprise when I receive two in one day! First, from Busy Moms Who Love to Read, I received the Honest Scrap Award. honest_scrap_award

Then, from Proud Book Nerd, the Versatile Blogger Award.


Thanks ladies!

Here’s how they work:

For the Honest Scrap Award, I am to list 10 honest things about myself and pass the award on to 7 blogs.

For the Versatile Blogger Award, you must share seven things about yourself and then pass it on to 15 blogs you have recently discovered that you enjoy!

Since they’re pretty similar, I’m going to kind of combine the two. Okay, let’s see, 10 things about myself:

1. Somehow I’ve gotten in the habit of watching Roseanne {yes, the TV show from the 80s & 90s} before I go to sleep. I’ve probably seen every episode 50 times, but I can’t turn it off.

2. I love to read. My favorite book of all time is Pretense by Lori Wick. I recently read The Help by Kathryn Stockett, and it’s a close second.

3. I have never broken a bone. {knock on wood} The idea of breaking a bone scares me more than probably necessary.

4. My family moved around a lot when I was growing up. I’ve lived in 4 states. I don’t know how many cities/towns, and honestly I don’t know how many houses/apartments.

5. For most of my life, I thought I didn’t like Mexican food. Over the past several years, thankfully, I have come to my senses. One of my all time favorite foods now is Chicken Enchiladas.

6. I have seen the musical Miss Saigon twice. {or is it three times?} The music is amazing & so is the story. The first time I saw it, I cried like a baby at the end.

7. Speaking of crying, my friends and I joke that I have a heart of stone. I don’t cry at movies that most women do. At the end of The Notebook they’re both doing the “ugly cry”, and I’m sitting there like nothing happened.

8. I love Jboy’s big toes. Seriously. They’re the cutest things ever.

9. My favorite genre of music is 80s music. Is that a genre?

10. It’s taken me a ridiculous amount of time to come up with these ten things.

Now, to pass the awards along. Here are 15 blogs/bloggers that I love. Pick whichever award you want to accept {even both} and then pay it forward:

Thanks! I am SO a movie crier! How do you do it?

Missy @ It's Almost Naptime said...

Thanks Kristi!!

I have never broken a bone either. Altho in first period gym class which totally messed up my hair for the rest of the day, I stepped in every hole attempting to do so. Never worked.

Thanks! Someone else passed an award on to me a couple of weeks ago, so maybe I'll do what you did & combine the two. I loved Miss Saigon, too! I saw it in London & it was fantastic!

Rebecca said...

Aww thanks! Yes, you truly do have a heart of stone! At least when it comes to movies! :)
