Honest Scrap

Hope everyone had a great holiday. I sure did! (I know there's another one coming up this week, but I'm not so much into the whole New Year's Eve thing. All it means is that no one goes to bed and I don't get my alone time. Oh, well.)

 A couple of weeks  ago, I was nominated for the Honest Scrap Award by Aubrie Dionne and Nicole Green. Thank you, ladies! The last time I was nominated for this award, I sort of fudged and only told one honest thing about myself instead of ten, so this time I am mending my ways and presenting the required ten honest things about myself. Hope it doesn't put you to sleep!

1. I love ice cream. I got an ice cream maker for my birthday. Heaven!
2. I prefer natural childbirth. Seriously. I've given birth with an epidural, without any medication, and by C-section. Natural is the only way to go!
3. I love to wear hats.
4. I grew up in the tiny town of Ferron, UT, and from there moved to Las Vegas for high school. Culture shock!
5. I don't remember the last time I went to the dentist. (I do make sure my kids get in there regularly, though.)
6. Speaking of kids, I am the happy mother of five sons and one daughter, all of whom are adorable, brilliant and talented. Not that I'm biased or anything.
7. Someday, I want to sing in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. This seems more attainable than publishing a novel sometimes.
8. I hate politics, however I am going to attend my neighborhood caucus in March and run for state delegate. Something must be done.
9. I have never traveled outside of the US.
10. I used to think blogging was only for people with a desperate need for attention. How embarrassing! I was definitely wrong about that. I love blogging, love my followers, love the blogs I follow. Glad I decided to find out what I was missing!

Well, I just thought those up off the top of my head, so hope you enjoy. I have decided not to pass this one along, because it's too hard to pick out blogs out of the many that I read and love, so if you want this award, want to do your own list (and I'd love to read them!), please comment on this post, and the award is yours! Or just comment anyway, even if you don't want the award. I always love reading your comments.

Wow, I learned something new! It's great to read about you. Wish we lived closer... oh wait! We do! We need to get together soon, maybe after the kiddoes are back in school.

Congrats on the blog award!

I bet Las Vegas was culture shock! I had friends from a big city move there and it STILL was culture shock. Although Terresa Wellborn is from Vegas and she's shed a lovely light on life away from the strip.

Ice cream is pretty yummy. Do you have a favorite flavor?

I love your honest scrap! I love ice cream too! And (I can't believe I'm saying this, but...) I totally agree on the natural childbirth! It is by far better!! Way to go superwoman!

Nisa said...

Wow! I learned a lot of new things! Seriously, natural? I kind of like my C-sections, but then, I heal quickly.

Running for state delegate? With what time!! Good luck! I agree something has to be done and you're braver than I!

I love when someone gets this award, it's so fun reading everyone's answers. Yours are great! I prefer natural childbirth too! Everyone thinks I'm nuts (except Linz maybe). And I love ice cream too!

Congrats on the award!

What a great list. I'll be sure to bring ice cream next time I come down your way.

Aubrie said...

Thanks for posting your "Honest Scrap" answers about yourself! It was great to read about you! I love ice cream and hats, but natural childbirth....I don't know if I'd be brave enough. I don't have any children unless you count my two miniature doxens. You're so honest about everything you blog about, you deserve it!

Great list, Angie. It was great to "meet" you.

My ancestors were one of the first families to settle Ferron so it was cool to see you were from there at one time. Know any Marsings? Ha, ha... they're all over that country.
