Hey Ladies!

Y'all know Robin?
Over at "Happy At Home"?

Well she gave me some bloggedy bling~!
This sign always makes me laugh...

Maybe it's just the way my silly little mind works,
but everytime I see this sign,
what I see is...

"Honest Crap"

and every time I have to laugh!

Now don't get me wrong...

I am absolutely honored that this crafty chick thinks enough of me, to pass this award my way. I have made the most wonderful friends through this blog, and I think of all of you as my extended family, my sisters. And that, truly comes from my heart.

Living here, in Hicktown USA, sometimes I feel like a square peg
in a round hole kinda world. But you girls get me. You really do.
Each award I get like this... means the world to me.

So I thank you Robin, you happy housewife, you!

Now, I'm not very good at going by the rules...
But there are rules, so I'll try to be good.

Rule #1. Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award. Did that.
Rule #2. Share "10 Honest Things" about myself. ...m'kay
Rule #3. Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.
Rule #4. Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.
10 honest things.

1. Shows that I never miss ~ Desperate Housewives, Greys Anatomy, Ugly Betty, Dancing with the Stars, or NASCAR. That's right, I said NASCAR. I know, my roots are showing.

2. I L.O.V.E. red wine. Just call me wineau. Or since I'm from the south - "wino".

From the Urban Dictionary:

Someone who props up walls in the street, drinking an unidentifiable drink (it neednt be wine, could also be spirits, special brew, buckfast or lighter fluid) out of a paper bag whilst swearing incoherently and dribbling. Yeah, that's me.

3. I must have music. Always. I love music. A few artists that I love: Etta James, James Brown, Al Green, Alan Jackson, Pink, Christina Aquilera, Eminem. But Aretha Franklin will always be the queen in this house. Buddy Guy will always be the king. Silence is not an option.

4. I'm a little bit perfectionist, a little bit work-aholic. One of the hazards of being my own boss, I never know when to quit. However I never seem to finish the projects that I start for myself.

5. I could eat sashimi (raw fish) every day.

6. Perfect number for this one. Six. I can't seem to put up with any man for more than six weeks. Then I am D.O.N.E. done. However, if Brad Pitt gets tired of Angelina... I'd be willing to give it another try.
7. Things you will never find in my house - paper plates, paper napkins, plastic utensils or disposable cups.

8. My favorite place in the world is Grenada.

9. My favorite author is Robert Fulghum.

10. Fav. movie - Crouching Tiger - Hidden Dragon.
Now here's where I break the rules...
Consider yourself tagged - you're it.


  1. LMAO! You crack me up! We have a lot on common...all but the man & 6 weeks!

  2. Your a crazy, funny lady! I love it. Thanks for sharing and brighting up my day!

    p.s. Your "Walking After Midnight" song playing is such a distraction. I always have to sing along and do a little chair dancing. I can't seem to keep a thought in my head until the song is over - talk about making it difficult to write a comment!

  3. Hi Teresa I enjoyed much the ten honest things about you. Some facts made me smile.
    It is a little like I learn to know you new!



My Grandmother always told me, "If you hang around with skunks, you're gonna get some stink on you."
