I received the Honest Scrap award from Kristin at Our Ordinary Life last week and so I thought that I’d post about it today!

honest OK, so 10 honest things…Gonna try and come up with something you may not know this time!  {and add pictures to make it more interesting}

image 1.  I am a huge fan of Sons of Anarchy on FX.  Zack started watching it last season and got me hooked.  Of course it could be because of the whole “bad boy” image that lured me in!  Of course this guy is one reason I can’t wait until Tuesday nights! {no, usually the grungy guys aren’t my thing}



2. You may already know this one, but I love Christmas.  So much in fact that I can make a guarantee…When I get old enough to not want to put up a tree bigger than a table topper, I will not take down my big tree but keep it in the corner with a sheet over it 10 months out of the year.  image

3.  I come home every morning after taking the Kelsie to school and call Zack to let him know I’ve made it home.  If he doesn’t receive my phone call he will call me to make sure everything is ok.



4.  I had a snowball the size of a basketball in our freezer up until a couple of months ago from January of 2008 when we drove up to Alabama just so that we could play in the snow! We love it that much and plan on one day living some where that gets at least a dusting or two a year.


5.  I do not like watching any movie with Nicholas Cage.  There is just something about him that I don’t like.  I have yet to like any movie he has been in because I think he has ruined it. 

image 6.  I am driving my dream car {Buick Rendezvous}!  Not many people can say that because a lot of peoples dream cars would be something that they simply could not afford.  Mine however was.  We went car shopping a couple of years ago and my dream car was on the lot.  We did a lot of jumping through hoops to bring her home, but she’s safe under our carport today.  And I talk to her almost daily!  image

7.  I do not like the Olympics.  I can’t stand it when the ice skating and tennis start coming on tv.  I don’t want to see it and don’t like that they stop my favorite tv shows to show it.



8.  I only live about 5 hours from it, but I’ve never been there.  Although I would love to go one day.  {Disney World}




9.  I used to want to be a Meteorologist when I was growing up. 



10.  I used to watch Jon and Kate Plus 8 all the time, but with all the junk going on with them now, I wished they would cancel the show indefinitely!  So that the family can move on and the kids can get on with some sort of normalcy.


Alright my 10 honest things!  Hope you enjoyed and a big thank you to Kristin for the award!

Ok,you finally got me with the Son of Anarchy thing...I've never even heard of the show(but you know me,I don't watch that much tv)
Nicolas Cage..I'm the exact opposite..I have loved just about everything he's in and for the most part because I think he's a great actor. know I've got you beat on that one with my snowball from the blizzard of 93...Sheesh,maybe I'll get rid of it on the 20th anniversary,ha! ha!
Talk to you in a little while!

Love the honesty!

Congratulations on the award!!! Great answers. I know what you mean about snow. My youngest daughter is nine and has never seen any. I totally agree with Jon and Kate answer. If the media would leave them alone maybe they would just go away and raise their children. It's all about how bad it all is for Jon & Kate, but nobody seems to be worrying about what it is doing to the kids.

Let's make a come live here (in Calgary) for a while and enjoy my snow and I'll come enjoy the sunshine! :)
Congrats on the award.

I think that is so cute that you call your husband to let him know you're home. I can't watch Jon and Kate either. After they announced their divorce (which I didn't watch) I stopped recording it. I feel for those children.

Amanda said...

OMG I feel the SAMMMMME way about Nicholas Cage! I thought I was the ONLY one!

Darlene said...

That was a fun read about you. I have never heard of the Son of Anarchy....maybe I'll have to check it out.

Shelley said...

You are so funny! My mom totally does #2, except she moves it to the basement with a sheet on it! If you want snow, we've had 34" October 2. Would love to send you some, lol.

Shelley said...

Oops. That should be since Oct 2 :)

Nichole said...

I used to want to be a meterologist too! I'm still obsessed with checking the weather reports :o) I feel the same way about Jon & Kate. I think they're both idiots.

I love Sons of Anarchy!

I cant believe you've never been to Disney! I'm about 30-45 minutes from it.
