Blog Award - Honest Scrap

Here are the Rules:

  1. Must thank the person who gave you the award and list their blog and link it.  Thank you Andrea at The Snorthing Gigglesaurus!  I've known Andrea pretty much the majority of my life and am amazed at how she's grown into a beautiful mature woman and mommy!
  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.
So here goes:
  1. I have no idea what I want from Christmas. I know I spent a whole post complaining about what to get people and how I'm out of ideas. I believe my stumped gift giving stems from the fact I have no clue what I want. I think it's because, wait for it...I'm satisfied; which is a very bizarre feeling for me. (At least in regards to material things) Weird.
  2. I ordered all my gifts online this year. I've received two so far. I'M FREAKING OUT!! Please UPS deliver the gifts so I don't have to go to the dreaded mall.
  3. The general public annoys the piss out of me. I try to avoid places like movie theaters on opening night, malls during the holiday season, etc. However, I love concerts and the people do not bother me. Maybe because we're all singing?
  4. I'm allergic to the cold. I break out in hives and get all itchy. I typically hate cold weather. Yet, I've been "running" in freezing temperatures. 
  5. My outfit to run in freezing temperatures consists of: two pair of socks, long johns, running pants, tank top, long john top, short sleeve shirt, long sleeve shirt, short sleeve shirt (yes, twice), two pairs of gloves, ear warmers, and knitted hat. I may or may not look similar to this.
  6. This is the first Christmas that I will not be spending with my family. Typically I see my parents at some point and this year it just wasn't possible to see both families on Christmas. So my family is getting together on Sunday. It’s just not the same.
  7. I have been at work before 7:00am twice this week. That deserves some kind of award right?
  8. Growing up I always opened my stocking gifts first.  Dave always did his last.  We argue every year which way to do it and have always stuck with our own traditions so far.
  9. I'm really looking forward to a few days off and getting out of town.  However, I really want a big trip.  One that requires a passport and 7 days off. 
  10. I'm going to break rules 3 & 4 and let those that want to join the fun do it.
