Awards and That Sort of Bloggy Love

I can officially say I've become a part of the (good and blessing and encouraging) type of online forwards through blogging known as AWARDS! I definitely think they are way more fun than the "send this email to ten people with random things about you" stuff--because you get to put a little pciture on your page annnd link to your blog friends! Here's the award the wonderful Katie gave to me!

So what you do when you get this award is tag people who you think deserve it for their honesty and...well, here, lets just show you the "rules:"

1. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design.
2. Show the 7 winners' names and links on your blog, and leave a comment informing then that they were prized with "Honest Scrap", the nifty icon they can display proudly on their blog.
3. List at least 10 honest things about yourself.

I don't actually follow that many blogs, so I don't think I have seven to tag, but I'll tag the ones that come to mind! And you ladies don't have to pass it on if you don't want to. I don't really mind.

1. Jennifer--Oh my goodness! I love this woman. Her steadfast faith even when her world crumbles is completely inspiring--not to mention her crazy-awesome kids, inner and outer beauty, and the mystery of "Haute Cakes Mystery Man!" You're marvelous, Jennifer!

2. Sandi--Even though I don't always agree with the way she does things, this woman is definitely honest and I respect that about her. The way she loves living with a huge, wild, but totally awesome family is also inspiring--especially how she sticks with them and makes sacrifices for her kids and her husband, even when things are rough. Thanks for being you, Sandi!

3. Caitlin--The girl who rarely updates her blog but changes her layout all the time. You're one of my best friends in real life, so I just had to give you an award too, especially one honoring honestly. Love you chica!

4. Linna--My bestest friend EVER, who also rarely updates her blog. (Her daily-song idea is sweet though!) But thats okay, she still gets the award too. Because not only does she give me honesty, she deals with my honesty, and that deserves way more than a lil' picture for a reward. Love you girlie! You rock!!

Okay--honest things about myself.

1. I'm fairly stubborn about my faith. I don't think there is anything that could remove it from me--I'm not saying I want to be tested, but I know every good thing in my life comes from Christ and that without Him I am nothing. He's provided for me in crazy ways and He's blessed my life unbelievably. So, if I offend you because I won't budge, I'm sorry to hurt you--but this is core to who I am and if you can't deal with that then it's going to be hard to be more than just surface-friends/acquaintances (AKA not deep kindred spirit friends).

2. I'm fairly certian I know who I'm going to marry...
♥ but we're still waiting for God to give the "Go for it" cue.

3. I'm good at organizing people and events, and even good at making some things fit and look nice, but I can't seem to keep my room in order. Sigh....thats one of those life goals. Learn how to keep my room clean.

4. I've been best friends with my best friend since roughly....4th grade. And we're freshmen in college and still really close. It rocks!
(♥ ya linna!)

5. I should be in bed so I can get up tomorrow and be productive.

6. I am a firm believer in boundaries in relationships and my 17 month monthaversar
y next tuesday is a good testiment that it really works and brings blessing! I love you Peter!! It's all for God's glory

7. I wouldn't mind having more public followers of my blog, but I think that means I need to update a lot and I don't have time... :-(

8. I wish I had a better sense of style. I always go for the more classic look rather than the bold stuff--and usually because of money. I just need Stacy and Clinton to give me $5000 and give me a fresh start!

9. I'm sharing my cell phone plan with my boyfriend and it was probably one of the wisest money saving ways to go for the amount of minutes we use. (We split the bill and use roughly 7000 minutes a month. For about 45 dollars each. AMAZING. Alltel rocks my socks.)

10. I rarely ever do babysitting jobs but I'm doing one tomorrow for one of my fave kids. Yay :-)

OKAY time to hit the sack. I'm pooped. 6 am mornings are no fun! (But productive...sigh.)

Goodnight my dear blogging friends!

You don't know how much I needed to hear that about myself tonight--thank you, thank you! I'm one of those "no-budgers" in my faith too, and it's sadly cost me a lot of friendships, but I have no regrets. I accept your award with much gratitude and wish you all the best.....even at 6 am :)
