I feel so special ;)

Pass the award on to ten bloggers who you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap, and whose blogs you find brilliant in design and/or content.

10 Honest Things about Me - Warning - I am kind of a weirdo

1. I am scared of all things hospital related. Birth giving, death, sickness, etc. It's a problem.

2. My car is incredibly dirty and I don't care at all.
I would rather spend money on clothes or food than a car wash.

3. I have one of the biggest appetites of anyone I know. I really think I could eat a Sumo wrestler under the table. I don't understand people that eat half a sandwich and wrap up the other half for later. Are you joking?! Exhibit A: My mom will have a yogurt for lunch. Really Mom? That's like 1/8th of a meal.

4. I won Best Smile as my high school senior superlative and I think it was totally deserved. I'm sorry for not being modest, but you must know your own strengths.

5. I think my cheeks are too big ... like a squirrel with nuts in his mouth at all times. This deep seeded notion probably comes from 2 factors: 1) When I was a baby I had the biggest cheeks ever. EVER. My grandma called me "Puffy" 2) The other factor is that my cheeks really are huge.

6. When I was younger my dad used to tell me I would be the 1st woman president and I totally believed him. Clearly this did not happen. This is great because it sounds like the worst job in the world.

7. Even though I am a social and VERY talkative person, lately I have been wanting to be a hermit. Cooking at home with my husband is the best part of my day and that's pretty much all I want to do all the time. And blog of course ;)

8. I hate driving on highways and almost never do it. Honestly, Mr. Fo makes me practice my highway driving with him so I don't forget how to do it. This fear probably stems from the fact that one time my mom and I (both equally terrible drivers, sorry Mom) got stuck in the merge lane on the side of the highway for seriously a 1/2 hour and could NOT get over... cars whizzing by me... life flashing before my eyes... it was incredibly traumatic.

9. When I was younger (my friends will LOVE this) my piano teacher told me I had a really good voice and I believed her. I used to always (and still do) sing super loud in the shower. After my piano teacher told me I had the gift of song (which I don't BTW, she was on crack or something), I stopped singing in the shower because I was afraid circus people would be out looking for sideshow acts and think WOW, this little girl has a great voice! Lets kidnap her and use her in our circus. (I was also afraid of being kidnapped).

10. I am originally from NJ and get really sick of the NJ jokes. There are really nice parts of Jersey, okay! (And admittedly, some not so nice parts) So come on people, don't judge.

Here are 10 blogs that I think deserve this awesome award...

Check them out - you won't be sorry ;)
