Awards!

I love award shows! I love the red carpet shows beforehand and I love to watch (most) of the speeches. I think the Golden Globes is my favorite because it is a bit more relaxed and almost anything can happen. Anyone remember when the Christina Lehti won the Golden Globe in 1998? Oh man so funny, and WOW I didn't realize that was 11 years ago! Classic - but don't get me wrong the Oscars are amazing too... I think my favorite thing about the award shows since watching is the DVR! Yes, while i enjoy *most* of the speeches there are a few categories and acceptance speeches that I couldn't care less about, so it's GREAT to be able to fast forward in certain parts :) So why am I babbling on about award shows when the Oscars are still a few weeks off? BECAUSE!!!

I won my first blogging awards!!! YAY! I am sooo excited and honored! Julie over at Every Day is a Crazee Day presented me with these award last week and I wanted to be sure to take good care to properly thank and do the award justice. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I was NOT in the bathroom at the time of winning these awards... I was MORE likely changing a diaper! ;-)

Here are the rules for these awards:

1). List 10 honest things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig
deep!
  • I could eat McDonald's every day. I regularly eat it within the week.
  • I desperately want long, stick straight (like hop out of shower it dries that way), DARK hair... but my hair is super wavy and won't hold color for longer than a week. One out of three ain't bad.
  • I have had over 100 xrays/mris but never had a broken bone.
  • I have tried and failed at learning three musical instruments: the flute, violin, and piano. I have no dedication to practice and for sure NO natural talent.
  • I started a book club because I love to read and discuss books with others.
  • I once made a bet with a boy in my youth group that I wouldn't go a month without shaving my legs and he lost and had to shave his (it was December... way to think that through guy!)
  • I stayed up for 52 hours straight (after several weeks of late nights) finalizing my final paper for Legal Writing and got a 98% on it.
  • My favorite area of the law to work is estate planning as it covers many issues: family law, real estate, property, business...
  • I can distictly remember waiting for my dad to come home from work one night to head to a father-daughter ho-down and attending that event. It is one of my most vivid memories from under 12.
  • I met my husband 3 months after a bad break up and the first thing he heard from me was me telling the group the soap opera of a summer I had just had... I'm surprised he ever spoke to me again. :)
2). Pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.

Thanks! I saw this a couple of days ago and I am in deep thought on the matter. I fully plan to put it into a blog post just as soon as I can think of some honest and interesting things. :-)
