An Award and Lake Trip

Lovely Veronica awarded me with this yesterday! Thank you! The Honest Scrap award is given to those who blog from the heart and do it with honesty. As if the saying honesty is the best policy isn't enough for you, why would you not be honest? I think the more authentic and the more genuine you are, the better your blog. Now clearly, I think there are times you just plain don't disclose every detail about your life! So anyways...thanks Veronica for the award!

Now I am supposed to list 10 Honest things about myself, and then give the award to 7 other people who I think blog with honesty. I know some of you have already gotten this, so take it as a compliment if you get it again!

I feel since I am already super honest with you all, there's probably not a lot that you don't know about I have been racking my brain to come up with some fun, quirky facts about me!

1. I LOVE Fall, it's my favorite season of the year!
2. I want to live by water some day, a lake, the ocean, but not really like a swimming pool, that just won't do it.
3. I love my cat, like really love my cat. He has already had a blood transfusion and stayed in the hospital for a week, so yea, I really love my Billy.
4. I have huge feet for a short person, I am 5 foot 4 inches and have size 10 feet! They have been this way since I was in 5th grade.
5. I enjoy going to the gym and working out. I used to hate it, and there are some days that I still do, but usually it's a good break for me from Molly.
6. I eat dessert every single night before I go to bed. No, seriously, every night! Maybe that's why the scale does not budge!
7. My dream house would be a restored farm house, with a wrap around porch, and animals. I would totally love to have a therapy place for kids to come and heal. Animals are magical to kids who need love. And a big red barn, it has to be red.
8. I started playing the violin when I was in 4th grade. And sadly, I wish I still played!
9. I just started Twittering, and quite honestly, I think it's boring. So to tweet or not to tweet, that is the question.
10. At any given point in the day, you will probably find me dancing with Molly. I feel bad for the people driving by, they get a show totally not worth paying for!

Now onto to the recipients of this award!

Today Eric and I are loading up some mini vans and taking our SR High kids to a lake about 40 minutes from here. A great couple at our church have a house at this lake, and are so wonderful to let us destroy it, I mean use it to talk about Jesus. Okay, so we will be talking about Jesus, but mainly having fun and swimming, staying up late, and roasting smores. Then we will be back tomorrow afternoon, then on Sunday we leave for vacation. Molly is staying in Milwaukee with our Children's Pastor, Becky, who is totally over the swine flu! They will be going to State Fair tonight, with Becky's fiance. Too bad I am going to miss out on deep fried bacon covered in chocolate. That is right, you read it correctly. Gross, I know. This is our first time leaving Molly with someone other then family. I am a little nervous, but I think the trip is going to go so fast, that we will be back before I know it. Hope you all have a great Friday!

Thanks for the award! I LOVE getting awards! I have size 10 feet as well but I am 5'10"! ha!

That was really nice of that couple to let y'all stay at their lake house. I bet y'all will have a ton of fun. Take lots of pictures!

Your list was fun to read. I also love, love the fall. I am also short, 5'3 and have a size 10 foot. My feet used to be smaller before I had Alyssa. How weird that your foot size can get bigger after giving birth huh?

Sounds like you guys are up for a lot of fun with your kids from church. I hope you all have a great time and the kids will get ministered to!

I enjoyed reading your list, I adore my cats too. You might think me crazy but I have three! (totally not planned)

That was fun reading about you. :)

Your feet are a little big for your height, but I bet you're well balanced. hee hee

I love the fall too. It used to be my favorite, and still may be, but summer...oh... I'm lovin' summer.

I totally know what you mean about living near water. I would love to live on the beach! But I'll have to have a winter beach house or something because I would miss my farm.

I'm with you on Twitter. I do twitter some, but don't exactly get it. Maybe you have to be a teenager to enjoy it? Hmmmm....

I'm so glad you dance with Molly. That's what a fun momma does and she'll always remember those times.

Have a lovely Sunday evening.

Just now commenting since I was gone all weekend. BTW I wish you could've been at the cousin get-together!! It was a lot of fun! Next year's is June 26th and Debbie will be back from Korea to visit during that time (I guess that's why Erica picked that date). So in case you (and your mom)would like to join us you can save that date. ;) I totally thought of you during the get-together and wished you had been there with us! I don't know if Erica ever sent an invite to you or not but I'll make sure she does.

I twitted (is that a word?) and I did not like it at all. I tried it out for BlogFrog but I ended up deleting my account. Kinda seemed pointless to me when I had facebook, ya know?
