Sondre Lyn always says the sweetest things to me.
Thank you for thinking of me for this prize, Sondre Lyn.
The rules are as follows: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.
I am having a hard time thinking of ten things about myself that the tens of you reading this blog don't already know, but I'm sure I will come up with something.
Let me see.
Oh, yes, here we go.
1. I loved the Twilight series of books by Stephenie Meyer.
Well, I loved most of them. I was SO excited to start the fourth book in the series. And I loved it up to a certain point, but then it started to just become ridiculous to me.
(Please, no tomato throwing.)
It got so bad that I could not even finish the book. I suffered my way through three fourths of the book, and finally, just gave up and skipped to the last chapter to see how it ended. And if you knew me at all, you would know that I usually have to finish a book if I start it.
Now don't get me wrong, I love Edward and Bella and their love story, but the last book was just too much for me.
I'm just saying is all.
I hope that we can all still be friends.;)
2. I don't like watermelon. At all. I think it is nasty! I know. I know. I am from the south; we are all supposed to love eating watermelon. I just can't do it. Sorry.
3. I love to watch this new show called Ruby on the Style Network.
It is a show all about Ruby's journey to lose weight. My son Daniel likes to watch it with me. Ruby is so funny, and she has the best accent, evah. Which, unfortunately for my family, I love to imitate.
I think it is very funny when I talk like Ruby, but my family does not. Especially Daniel. He hates when I do it. Oh well, you can't please every body all the time, amen?;)
I found this clip on You Tube so you can hear her for yourself.
Daniel gets so humidified when I talk like Ruby in front of his friends. LOL!:)
Seriously, you can just ignore me if you want to.
4. I just recently joined
Okay, that being said, a couple of weeks ago I received a friend request from a guy that I went to high school with. And attached to his friend request was a little personal message.
This is what his message said: "Holy crap, Amy, you look so different! How's everything going? It's been a long time."
What does that even mean?
I mean I know it's been a long time and all, but I look so different?
Who says that to an insecure woman that's about to turn 40?
Holy crap, I was SO humidified by that statement. ;)
5. Even though I am all grown up, about to turn 40, and haven't lived with my parents in almost 20 years, my mom still blames me for any and all items that she cannot find.
I'll give you an example of a typical "missing item" alert phone call.
The telephone rings.
I answer it.
Me: (Is this the party to whom I am speaking? *snort-snort*) Hello!
Mom: Amy, do you have my Tupperware lettuce keeper? I can't find it.
Me: No, Mom, I don't have it.
Mom: Are you sure? Because I thought you borrowed it once.
Me: No, Mom, I never borrowed it. I have my own Tupperware lettuce keeper.
Mom: Well, I didn't loan you my can opener, did I?
The only missing thing that she doesn't blame me for taking is her Tupperware hair brush that she had been using for the last 30 years. She blames that on my uncle.;)
So, please, I urge you, if you see either one of these vintage Tupperware items.....
Please call me. ;)
I love you, Mom!
I'll finish up with the last five honest things about myself in my next post.
