My Turn

So, I consider myself relatively new to blogging and I am intrigued by awards. I love reading about what people are required to do to receive these awards, love the artwork, etc. but like most things in my life I am left wondering, "when is it my turn?" But now, wonder no more, I have received bling from two folks in the same day. Thanks to music maker momma and the angry infertile.

Here are 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 them that they were prized with "Honest Scrap." Well, there's no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.

3) List at least 10 honest things about yourself.

Here are my ten honest things:

1. I used to want to be a presenter on QVC (you know, the shopping channel). I used to watch it for hours on end in high school, but I never ordered anything. I know alot about Diamonique and semi-precious stones.

2. If I don't like an actor's politics I won't watch their movies. Even if I really want to see the movie.

3. I grew up in a town of 75 people in rural Iowa. It was a great place to grow up. If someone made me move back there I would slit my throat.

4. I will probably watch the finale of "The Girls Next Door". I am intrigued by the whole situation of these women living with that old man. I also like to watch those Real Housewives shows and the Duggars with their whole mess of kids.

5. In the same vein as the crap TV I watch, I went to see Crossroads (the Britney Spears movie) in the theater by myself because I couldn't find anyone who would go with me.

6. My favorite old movie is Splendor in the Grass.

7. I really really love accounting in an academic sense. I love it so much that I write questions for the CPA exam.

8. I hate the fact that my nearest family lives a four hour drive away. However, everyone in my family thinks that my house is always super clean and organized because I always spend two days cleaning and organizing to prepare for their visits.

9. My father passed away when I was twenty one. My life was a total mess at the time. I cry when I think about how he never got to see me pull things together.

10. My husband and I had a very small wedding because we were paying for it ourselves and we didn't have any money (husband in grad school at the time). I get very bitter and jealous when I go to big extravagant weddings.

And I am passing along to...

Jo at MoJo Working
Eileen at We Got Hitched...Now What?
Ashely at My Life, Our Journey
Erica at Learning to Accept My Infertility
L at Baby Making Journey
S.E. at Riding the Rollercoaster
G&H at Journey to a Wondraful Baby

OK. That was a lot of work. I'm glad I had the day off work today.

You are the second person that I know who does that!

Just Believing said...

Yeah! Thank you so much!

I am so with you on #10.
I know it matters more WHO you marry, but damn it I never got to wear the dress I had bought. I wore a casual dress I had worn to 2 weddings before mine. I threw it away.

Jo said...

Wow, my first award! I am so excited! Thank you!

I love watching the Duggars...and Girls Next Door. Two totally different - yet FASCINATING - ways of life. Neither of which remotely resembles my reality -- perhaps that's why I love them so much? :-)

I found your through ICLW today. You completely crack me up, and I swear we are on the same wavelength!!! I made a post several weeks ago about 'affirming' HPTs! Someone commented at the time that there was a blogger who had made up 'mock tests'. Too funny! I'll be back to stalk you more when I'm not at work, lol!

I've never met anyone who loved accounting--fascinating!!! In the interest of full disclosure, ha hah, I watched the TV reality Britney and Kevin show Chaos by myself.

Wishing you the best on your journey toward a baby.

My hubby and I had a very small wedding too because we had to pay for everything. We did not even have a photographer which is what I regret the most!

Megan said...

We didn't have a photographer either. I had family take pictures. We didn't have a dance...I wish we had done that too.

Erica said...

Thanks for the award, Megan! Nice list. :)
I totally love The Girls Next Door too. Do you really think they have sex with HH? So weird....

Kate said...

I love the Dugger's too. I also love Little People, Big world!

I remember QVC. I would watch it for hours.

Thanks for sharing.

I'm curious whose movies you won't see.

And really? A CPA geek?

On-the-cheap wedding here, too. I actually preferred it this way. Makes it more about the marriage than the wedding, and my theory is that it ups your odds of staying happily married. Or maybe that just sour grapes.

ha ha. this was fun to read. i'm so glad that someone else is addicted to girls next door. :) i'm sad that the show is ending....

I'm totally with you on #10 - the wedding thing. I'm always amazed (and a smidge jealous) when I see weddings where the bride's father has spared no expense. Ah well, it's just one day and, like others have pointed out, has no bearing on whether the marriage will be happy or not! We probably spent more money on the honeymoon than the wedding & I really don't regret that.

Oh yeah, I personally would rather not know an actor's political leanings! :)
