It pays to be honest.....

Award time! Award time! I love getting presents....even in blogland....
The Wife over at The Cobia Family so lovingly gave me the Honest Scrap award!! Thank you GMC!!! I absolutely love her blog and love her addiction to monograms even more!!! She is an elementary school teacher and when you read her blog, you will WISH your kids could have an adorable teacher like herself!!!
The more and more I blog the more I just become addicted! It's such an awesome way for me to pour my heart out. Even if no one read it, I would still do it and hope that Georgia can read it someday and know how much I loved her and how much joy she and her daddy bring to my life..... I am supposed to pass this onto 7 bloggers...but like The Wife, that's an awful lot so I am going to do a few....maybe it's blogillegal to change up the rules, but hey, I'm just being honest.
So here are two blogs that I love and I think you will love them too.........
1. Leslee over at Love Leslee
**She totally deserves this award for so unselfishly documenting their journey while trying to conceive an angel....I know she is such an inspiration to other women in her situation. Thank you Leslee for your strength!!**
2. dreaming in pink and green
** Love this blog! She's too cute and just started grad school!! Best of luck pink and green!!**
Here are the rules for the award.....
1) Thank the blogger that gave you award. Thank you, GMC! I love following you and thank you for following me!!
2) Share 10 things that your blog readers may not know about you. hmm....this may be difficult as I am pretty much an open book but I'll try....
3) Pass the award onto 7 fellow bloggers (or your own desired number as I did)
So here are the ten things you might not know about me....
1. I was in Spelling Bees growing up. LOVE to spell and like to think that it's a great quality I possess. I would personally guarantee this has come from my love of reading. What better way to expand your vocabulary? (Note to self: make sure I triple check this post for grammatical errors)
2. I met my husband when I was 18 and dated all through college. LONG DISTANCE the first 2 1/2 years at that!! I'd like to say that's a big feat these days!
3. I want to be famous. Ha! Seriously. One year I asked Raymond if he would hire some people to follow me around like the paparazzi. Then, when people saw the paparazzi following me, they would assume I'm famous. I wish I were joking.
4. I own a clothing business with my best friend. The name of it is Formosa:Curvy Couture. Formosa meaning voluptuous in Italian. It's fitting, right? (No pun intended)
5. I am so over Facebook. I think the older generation has taken over. I may get SHOT for posting this on my blog, but I miss the "old" days when I could put all my crazy pictures on there and not worry about my mom's cohorts seeing them. Thank goodness my mom is anti-facebook. There are just some places parents don't need to be.
6. Raymond and I have nicknames for each other. I never ever hear my real name in my household. But now, I am usually called "Mama" by him and it just makes my heart melt. Either way, the only time I am ever called by my real name is when I am in trouble {i.e. "unauthorized shopping sprees ; )! }
7. I missed my calling as a therapist. The only reason I never followed through? I can't cut it off. I take the world on my shoulders. I would love to eventually work with rehabbing addicts. That's an area that fascinates me (Intervention, anyone?)
8. I have a lot of friends. That may seem like a boastful statement but what I mean is that I stay in touch with all of my friends. I have friends from early childhood and can proudly say some of my oldest and dearest friends have known me some for 10 years, some for 20. I think it's hard to stay in touch with those you've grown up with, but I wouldn't trade my girls for anything in the world.
9. I am territorial. I'm like a lioness and my friends and loved ones are my cubs. I think I get this from my mama. She is the most kindhearted person I know, but mess with her babies and you better run for the hills. I have known to go apes**t on someone who threatens a member of Camp Hamilton. What does this mean for you? Just stay on my good side and you will have no worries! Ha!
10. I hate nature. I hate being outdoors. I hate camping. This includes sports. (Sorry Raymond) Nature and I broke up a long time ago and it was an ugly breakup. We have not been amicable since. I have grown to love (tolerate) football and hunting (okay, so just fourwheelin')because they are a just a few PASSIONS of my husband. Plus, the tailgating and socializing of football isn't too bad ; ) I get better and better every season. I'll get there....
Well there you have it...hope you're enlightened.

  1. You are so sweet! I agree about facebook. Still on there but don't do much with it. And the whole nature thing- we broke up too!
