I Won an Award?!

I can hardly believe it but I am so incredibly honored to have won an ‘Honest Scrap’ award from my friend Eliza at Postcards from Parenthood which really means a lot to me.  Not only has Eliza been one of the few blogging Mamas to totally embrace me, but I take pride in the fact that honesty is my one and only policy when it comes to writing this blog.  Thanks Eliza!! 

Being the recipient of this award entitles me not only to pass this on to other bloggers I admire, but to share 10 things about me with you, my faithful readers.

1.  I was a teenage Girl Scout.  Seriously.  Until I was 17.  I’ll have to blog about it some time…
2.  I left my job in December.  4 months is by far the longest I’ve gone without working since I was 13 years old.  
3.  I’ve been a telephone operator, mail clerk, cashier, pizza delivery girl, department store sales girl, hair salon receptionist, production coordinator, film director, vintage clothing store manager, and a library clerk.
4.  Super proud of my all-natural labor with Cedella!  No drugs at all, not even a Tylenol.  From my water breaking to holding my baby took a grand total of 7 hours.
5.  Can still recite almost all of the words to ‘Sixteen Candles’ and ‘Pulp Fiction’.
6.  I collect the following vintage items:  cameras, lamps, souvenir scarves, postcards, biographies, things with JFK on them and baby clothes from the 70’s.
7.  I was married a year ago in the same room where my parents first met.  Then it was a library, now it’s a ballroom.
8.  I once pushed Chaka Khan through Detroit Metro Airport in a wheelchair.  No really, it wasn’t a dream…
9.  I wanted to be an astronaut when I grew up and went to Space Camp 3 times.  Then I discovered shopping and decided to be a fashion designer instead.  Way to switch gears, huh?
10.  If I don’t eat a piece of chocolate in a day I am not a happy camper.  But in case there’s no chocolate in the house ice cream will suffice.  

Now I pass the torch to some of my other blogging sisters…

Teresha at Marlie and Me for being so down to earth and being such a big support and great friend to me since I started blogging.
Metta at365 days: 30+Mommyhood for the honesty and love she pours into each and every blog post.
Diana at Hormonal Imbalances for keeping it very real with all the hard choices she’s having to make.
Mrs. F at As the Forest{e} Grows for talking about everything from sex to church with honesty and humor.
Care at The Exposed Mom for her beautiful photographs that are the epitome of honesty.

I know…it’s supposed to be 10 but these are the only bloggers I know aside from Eliza!
