gotta love blogging

so blogging makes me happy
for so many reasons
but my favorite reason for continuing to blog is simple....
real life friends....and my new bloggy friends
you guys keep me coming back time and time again!

one of my new bloggy friends
the rambler
was sweet enough to give me my second award!
thanks so much!!
i'm soooo excited!

and in the fashion of accepting awards...
there are rules...
so they are

First, choose a minimum of seven blogs that you find brilliant in content or design. Secondly, show the seven 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. Lastly, list at least ten honest things about yourself.

since i gladly accept the fact that someone thinks that i am...or my blog is .... brilliant....
i will totally follow those rules!

i'm gifting the award to these 7 bloggy friends
(fyi: i know none of these people personally....but i'm using this award to let them know how much i love their blog, and how much their stories inspire other words...i find them AND their blogs...BRILLIANT!)

check them out! :)

for the second part ..... 10 honest things about me....
  • i adore my relationship with god....but i strive daily for ways to improve it!
  • i love cold weather .... probably because i'm hot ... all the time!
  • my body's ability to regulate pretty much zero....
    which has resulted in pretty much all of the health issues that i have had (i.e. kidney stones & chronic kidney infections, constant migraines, gall stones (and eventually having my gall bladder removed) degernative disk disease, issues with healing (allison & danielle...remember my broken arm...) brittle bones/teeth, fibromyalgia)
  • i am a very picky eatter.....which i'm quite sure stems from the fact that i have texture issues with food .... and the reason i could eat the same thing for days on end with out getting sick of it
  • my side of the always the side closest to the when we go places.....i switch "my side" depending on where the bathroom is....poor flake...he'll get used to it one day! :)
  • i don't like to drive....well, actually, i don't mind driving, when no one else is around, but when other drivers get on the road....i get very very nervous....
    because of this....i find ways to get where i need to go, without having to get on the highway! :)
  • i can hold entire conversations in my sleep.....flake uses this as his party trick! :/
  • one of my dream vacations is to .... sesame place .....
    flake says we have to wait to have kids before we can go
    i think that is silly!
    for some reason he isn't for adults!
    seriously.....what is wrong with him?!?!
  • i am very particular about some things (i.e. how the clothes are hung in the closet, how my underwear is name a few), but could care less about other things (i.e. the bathroom drawers!)
  • i despise the taste of toothpaste....and because of that, i hate to brush my teeth at night...only cause i can't chew gum after i brush my teeth, like i do in the morning!
ok....that was hard!
(but the sad thing is....there is so much more i could say!)

thanks rambler,
and everyone....
for making blogging addicting and fun!

(for those precious bloggy "friends" that i gave this award don't have to gift it along, i just wanted you to know i love your blog!)

You have something in common with Grandma! ;)

Wendi said...

Thank you so much!!!
I can't believe anyone would think my fluff is brilliant, but I am flattered!
Love your honest list.
I too am peculiar about laundry... hanging of clothes, folding of clothes, and don't get me started about how to wash and dry them.
Okay, a little too much honesty.
Thanks again for the award and have a wonderful weekend!

Country and side streets are nicer anyway. That is a great list.

I am stopping by from BSU.

hehe...glad you were honest!

K..I am NOT a picky eater at all but the rest of the fam IS..and Roo has sensory issues as well...he's almost two and still on baby food because he doesn't like other textures/temperatures.

Conversations in your sleep? Oh, no, that would NEVER happen to me! (ugh, fine, if we are being of these days I will have to tell my whole 50 cents conversation I had with hubby-then boyfriend)

And, hubby does most laundry but I have to put my own away cause I have all the same colors together,and in order spaghetti strap, tank, no sleeve, short sleeve, long sleeve, sweater, jacket ..for each color...pants and skirts have their own order too. NO, I'm not a freak! LOL

BTW - come see me again...I have a Friendship Award and a couple of memes for you!
