Here we go...

A.) First list 10 Honest Things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep.
B.) Pass the award on to seven bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap
  1. Deep down inside of me I want to be a cow farmer. Some of you know this already. I really would love to wake up and look out over my green pasture dotted with cows.
  2. My husband is my hero. Seriously. He runs into burning buildings and flaming cars to save people he's probably never met! HERO.
  3. I hate it when people say anything about me not having a job. I taught 7th graders & Pre-K'ers for 3 years...and I've never worked harder than when I had Hudson and decided to stay home! I don't know how working moms do it...all I think is "I'm this exhausted at the end of the day with him...imagine if I had to hold a 9-5 on top of it!"
  4. I am a people pleaser. Sometimes I hate this about myself, but I cannot change it. I will do EVERYTHING in my power to ensure that people are not upset with me. I can't stand it. Even if it means apologizing when I really feel like I didn't do anything wrong.
  5. I love creating things. I love scrapbooking, making crafts, painting, crocheting; basically all things artsy. My grandmother's artist influence I guess. But I'm easily I usually only do something once and then change it up. (especially true of my crocheting).
  6. I think/worry all the time about whether we're raising Hudson in the right place. I think about moving to different cities, and what would be best for him in regards to family, schools, churches, friends, college. I stress about this way to much since he's only 2!
  7. My wedding was a fairy tale! Joshua surprised me on vacation in Hawaii with a wedding completely planned by him and my mom. I did not have to sacrifice anything except that all of my friends and Josh's family couldn't be there. It was surreal...exciting...relaxing...beautiful...and I felt like Cinderella.
  8. Josh and I want to adopt a little girl from China one day. I get excited thinking about taking Hudson to China to bring his sister home.
  9. I have to have access to a bathroom at all times. And if that luxury is not available I immediately have to go. Or if it will disturb other people if I get up...I immediately have to go. We have to get seats on the end of an aisle for any kind of show. I don't usually go on long trips in other people's cars...I do realize I could ask them to stop, but it seems more available if I'm driving.
  10. Sometimes I want to just pack everything and move somewhere like Hawaii or Greece...just to do it. Mamma Mia didn't help...maybe my new dream is to own an inn on a Greek Isle???
Ok, so I pass this on to: Traci, Jessica, Sarah J., Sarah G., Brooke, Amy, & Summer...but it won't hurt my feelings if y'all don't do it.

I completely related to #9! I don't know what it is but I have been that way since I was in 2nd grade...I am better about it now but roadtrips in college were hard :-)
