Guess what?? I have been honored with this "Honest-Scrap" award from Judy at Benmakesten!

Let me just say from the get-go that Judy has one of the greatest blogs I've ever visited! Seriously! You could spend all day there and never get bored! She recently included me in a weekly feature called Daily Blessings Weekly Interviews! The questions were a lot of fun to answer but also very challenging! Please take a few minutes to stop by her place and visit!

Now...to keep this award, I must do the following: 1) Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award. (Hence, see the beginning of this post) 2) Share "ten honest things" about myself. 3) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me. 4) Tell those 7 people that they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving it :)

Ok...so...number one was taken care of at the start. Number two is to share ten things about myself:

1. I hate to fly! You know...the "need a drink before I even get on the plane" kind!

2. I really, really like my kids! They are so unique and such specials gifts!

3. I procrastinate a lot and have many unfinished projects in my house (and my mind).

4. One of the biggest regrets I have in life is not learning to speak Italian so that I could communicate better with relatives.

5. I have a tendency toward anxiety/panic attacks....since I was a little girl.

6. I almost never finish a a Novena prayer that I start (see #3).

7. I am a FOXNEWS addict!

8. I love to cook but at ages 8, 5 & 3, my kids aren't very adventurous about trying new things and so I stick to about 4 main items that I cook over, and over, and over, and over, and over....etc.....

9. Sometimes I wish I had been born in a different time....late 1800's....early 1900's....or even in the 1950's. I long for a simpler time when things were black and white and all this gray area that has been caused by political correctness didn't exist.

10. My parents are deceased (1982 & 2006) and I miss them both terribly!

Now, I would like to bestow this award to the following people/blogs!

Now, I could go on and on with more than 7....but today...I feel like following the rules! Please enjoy all of these blogs....these are true women of God and I know you will be blessed.

oh Nancy,

I am touched. Thanks so much for this award.

I am with you. I should have been born in the late 1800's I think. I often feel like I am a century too late.

Maybe one day we can all live in a Catholic commune where we don't have to be politically correct.

Nancy, I'm SO GLAD that you enjoy Benmakesten!!! I SURE LOVE THAT YOU VISIT THERE!

I wish I learned Italian too! Unfortunately, my Dad spoke no English as a child and got picked on at school so he learned his English so well that he never passed his native language onto us kids :(

And I can not believe you procrastinate!!! I have been seeing all these lovely flowers and hand-painted knobs and what-nots on your blog...you do SO finish things!!!

Thanks for sharing yourself with us...you are really special!

Great to get to know you better! Thank you for the honour to stand among you and the other honourees. :) I'll take care of this tomorrow when I don't have my teen girl standing over me to use this laptop!

P.S. my word verification, I kid you not, is: farse.

Thank you so much, Nancy. I actually have been considering taking a bit of a "blogging break", but I guess I have to put that off for now :) I guess I tend to procrastinate a bit, too!
Thanks again for thinking of me!
