Honest Scrap! My First Blog Award!



I was given my very first bloggy award by my very blogilicious friend, Shalee, over at Sometimes Its Good To Be Speechless! Thank you, Shalee! You are a rockstar!

Now, this award doesn't come easy! I have to earn it by exposing myself (yikes!) .... (not as freaky as it!) Here's the scoop...

The rules for the Honest Scrap award:

The honorees are to:

A) List 10 honest things about yourself -

and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep!

B) pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap

And away we go....

1. If Edward Cullen were a real person, I would run away from home, kick Bella's be-hind, and make him my own...cause I'm older and more experienced...and my blood is probably tastier cause it ages like fine wine...

2. My husband proposed to me at KFC...(yes, that's right...the chicken joint..)

3. I can only have white hangars in my closets. (can anyone say, "Mommy Dearest?")

4. I LoVe to play Cash Cow on Webkinz for hours and hours...

5. When I go into a bookstore, I always find the timewarp and end up staying in there for hours...and hours...when I come out 100 years has passed by...

6. I love Aerosmith, Metallica, Muse and Bullet 4 My Valentine (yes, I realize I am 43, but what are ya gonna do?)

7. I am horribly addicted to an intervention is probably needed (and I've only been at for 2 weeks!)

8. I am a closet road rager. I will scream (yep, I set a great example for my children...) at all the stupid drivers until they do what I say. (My kids find it amusing that I think the other drivers can actually hear me...oh, didn't I mention I rage with the windows up?)

9. I am a huge fashion nerd. (my sister is the stylish one...)

10. I wish I could be paid millions for my wit and, make that billions...

Whooo's 100?

I am! This is my 100th post!

To say I am astonished and humbled by the incredible support of my blog from fellow bloggers, friends and family would be an ginormous understatement! I am truly, deeply grateful that ya’ll stop by and visit me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

(I had this scheduled to post at midnight, but for some reason, it didn't! I got up to check it about 1:30 am and discovered blogger's mischief! Sorry if you came by then!)

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it! It’s my 100th post and by the time you are done reading it, you’ll probably feel as old and tired as Rip Van Winkle! You know me and my long winded rambley-ness! (....the giveaway is here..I promise!)

So, this is what I’ve come to know about blogging in the last 100 days….

Blogging is like taking a vacation to a place you never k…

For Gigi ... A Letter to Heaven

Today there is a happy celebration in Heaven as it would be my beautiful grandmother Gigi's birthday.  Gigi was definitely the most important influence on my life and it became crystal clear to me how deeply when I was asked to write the eulogy for her memorial service a few years back.  I decided to send a letter directly to God explaining what amazing treasure was on it's way.  It is a letter meant to bring smiles and giggles.  Thanks in advance for allowing me to share that special letter with you today as we honor her memory:)

Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…
