Oh, Scrap! I Thought This Was Published!

Rae Ann was kind enough to give me the Honest Scrap Award. This award is for bloggers who write from their heart or put their hearts on display. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Rae Ann! She writes a nifty blog called Critical Mass. Check it out, you are sure to enjoy her wit and wisdom. It's always a fun place to visit to cheer up your day.

I'm supposed to do two things with this award: 1. Tell 5 honest things about me. 2. Pass this on to 5 deserving blogs--I'd like to share the love and award this award to some new, fun blogs.

5 Honest Things
1. I don't like to get cut flowers as a gift. First, I'm allergic (especially lilies) and second, I'm no good at keeping them alive or arranging them.
2. Carmel is my ultimate sweet thing. If it's on an apple at Halloween time, it's even better!
3. I'm a junky shopaholic. I love to troll antique shops and discount stores. There is no hunt at the corner boutique that can satisfy the thrill of the kill at Marshalls or TJ Maxx.
4. I was a preschool teacher and a middle school teacher--the parents were always harder to handle and cater to than the kids.
5. My mom is a vegetarian and my dad was a dairy farmer. Their daughter is a hybrid crazy, picky beef-eating vegetarian. Say what?

5 Cool Blogs That I've Been Recently Introduced To:
1.  Shimmer Me Blue
2.  a picture or memory a day
3.  Three different directions
4.  Wife and Mom of 3
5.  parenting BY dummies

Play along if you'd like, no pressure.
