I Win!! I Win!!

I been watching as other blogs I follow are receiving blog awards and I was taken back to being the last girl picked for dodge ball in elementary school. But look at this...

It's my turn BABY!! Karen nominated my little 'ole blog for this award and I'm so honored. By the way Karen I can't believe you are a grandma, you look fabulous!! Oh! and thank you for my very first award and making sure I wasn't picked last for the team :o)

So there are some rules to follow, though I'm not really one for rules I will do my best.

1) Must thank the person who gave the award and list their blog and link it.
2) Share "10 Honest Things" about yourself.
3) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs you find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged you.
4) Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving the award.

10 Honest, yet Random, things about me

1. I wear the same jewelry every single day. Wedding rings, rose gold diamond ring from my grandmother, diamond earrings that I got from my husband on my 30th birthday and a locket that I got for my first mother's day. I would love to be a girl who could accessorize her outfits with beads, bangles and dangly earrings, but I either end up feeling like I look goofy or end up playing with it and get distracted. I can't even wear a watch.

2. I have an irrational fear of bathtub/shower drains. I saw a show when I was young, I don't even remember what it was, and the little girl got swirled down into the drain. That was it for me, to this day I avoid stepping on the drain in my stand up shower.

3. I am one of very few people that does not own an IPOD.

4. I can work some mad formula writing skills in an Excel workbook and it's all self taught. I am the go-to girl at work for creating elaborate reports and such.

5. I have never had a best friend in my life. I have friends, close friends, but never a best friend.

6. I will not argue with someone unless I KNOW that I am right. It's a character flaw I know.

7. I am a huge procrastinator, but I never miss a deadline.

8. I hated school, but took advance placement classes all through high school, never studied and got mostly A's and B's. I sometimes wonder what would have happened if I applied myself and went to college.

9. I went to trade school to be a travel agent, but I work in the mortgage industry.

10. I might currently be addicted to Farmville and Cafe World in Facebook. I know it's lame, but I just can't help myself, must level up...

7 Blogs I find Brilliant or Encouraging
These are all twin mama's at various stages in the journey. I'm glad I found them and have enjoyed following along.

1. Adriane - Working mama to twin girlies just a little older than mine and just as cute. I feel like we have alot in common and wish I could meet her someday.
2. Heather - Another mama to 3 in less than 3 years, but she has all girls. I found Heather's blog pretty early in my pregnancy and stalked along.
3. Jennifer - The first twin mama blog I found that was pregnant at the same time as me. Jennifer's girls were teeny tiny when they were born and now they are beautiful 1 year olds.
4. CJ - CJ, found me. We have both struggled with childcare and have exchanged some e-mails. She just recently posted a beautiful picture of herself with her boys.
5. Mandy - Mandy is a brand new mama to boy/girl twins. I wish I had tracked my pregnancy like she did. I know all too well the issues that she had near the end of her pregnancy.
6. Tiff - The first twin mama I found. She graciously accepted my crazed e-mails when I first found out it was twins, and girls. She likely thought I was a nut, but I promise it was the hormones talking.
7. Lindsay - Like Tiff, Lindsay also has 4, but her twins are nearly the same age as mine. I am still amazed that she takes all 4 of them out of the house by herself without having a mental breakdown.
