Let's Be Honest Here...

My blogfriend JennyKate just tagged me with the Honest Scrap. I've done this before (read about that here), but since I LOVE tags and honesty I am happy to give new information. After you're done reading my list you have to stop over JennyKate's spot. She is just a ball, she's funny, she has these great Confession posts, and loves all things Twighlight.
Here's the deal:

In accepting this award, I need to do the following:

1) Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award.
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.

1. I have to sleep with a fan. No, you don't understand...I HAVE to sleep with a fan. When I travel, I take a fan with me. When I take a nap, the fan is on. Funny morning Rondell was trying to wake me up. He said he called my name a few times, tickled my foot and I think even kissed me. I did not move. He turned off the fan and I INSTANTLY woke up. Sad.

2. I don't like for my food to touch. I'm actually better about this than I used to be. Now at least some things can touch but vegetables are not to be mixed with other foods. You will often find me with an extra bowl or plate for my veggies.

3. I've never been to a Broadway play and would love to go one day.

4. I carry Bag Balm with me at all times for my lips. I have one for my purse, one downstairs and one upstairs. I've used it forever.

5. I love giving gifts (I stole this from JennyKate, but it is so true for me as well). I love finding something thoughtful and fitting for someone and being able to give it to them.

6. I love my birthday. Really. I love it. I don't need a huge party (although that would be nice), but I like the little extra attention. I also love other people's birthdays and like to do something special for my friend and family member's birthdays.

7. I do this ... a lot. I don't know why, but I do. It's like a pause in my thought.

8. Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday...even more than Christmas. I love to give little gifts and spread extra love on that day.

9. I am not a night owl. It's not unusual to find me asleep by 9:30. If I'm up after 10:30 then it must mean I'm really into what I'm doing or I've had a few too many Cokes.

10. I am driving my dream car. I truly love my Honda Odyssey and have no desire for any other car. The only thing I would add to it is satellite radio and a navigation system...maybe on the next one.

I tag... Mandi, Shaila, Tanya, Amy, Laurel, Bobbi, and anyone else that I tagged previously but you have yet to post honestly!

THanks! This looks like fun! I'll definitely do this later tonight!

OMG! we really have the fan thing in common. I am the same way, This has cause issues with me and my husband, He is always cold. Any little draft drives him crazy. Not only to it have to be on, but it must be blowing in my face on High. I cabt even come to an agreement with my dear husband to lower the speed to Ive been this way since I can remember..Wow! Thanks for sharing ... at least i know Im not alone with the fan!! :)

Christy said...

What a fun list. I love sleeping with a fan too, but my food can touch. hehe.

Mandi Shandi said...

Meant to tell you earlier when I came by that your #1 and 2 are me exactly! A little scary. I never let my food touch, especially if the food is runny, i.e. veggies, and I have to have a fan to sleep too. I have a small one ready to go whenever we travel.

Thanks for the award. This will work perfectly for Thankful Thursday.
I love the list, I totally agree that I love to give gifts. I love seeing smiles on other people's faces.
Thanks again and have a fabulous day!

Congrats on your award!!

If I could do it, I would fly on up there to Ohio, grab you and take you to a broadway play in NYC!!!! You have to go!!


Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

Oh boy - I've got to get thinking.

Katie said...

Well we are certainly opposites in our sleeping patterns. Sometimes 10:30 is the beginning of my most productive time of the day, when I'm toddler free!

Did you get my email? You won my chiquita smoothie giveaway and I need you to email me your address so I can pop them in the mail to you.

The fan thing is me too! My hubby grew up sleeping with a fan in his room. When we got married, He HAD to have a fan-now I do to!!! And I seperate my food too-I don't like my food touching!!! I will use a million different plates if I need to-

Tanielle said...

Congrats on the award!! I love sleeping with my windows open and the fan going but my hubby has to have silence, drives me crazy!:-)

Hi Kelli! WOW! That's a whole lot of honesty all in one place.

I left you a little something at my blog to brighten up your day. :)

Kelli @ RTSM said...

Number 2 made me laugh because I am the same way! I hate for my food to touch...I am getting better, but when I was younger I really wouldn't eat something on my plate if it was touching something else!

Jill said...

Heidi @ Blue Eyed Blessings said...

Congrats on the award and it's always fun to get to know you better through things like this. I sleep with a fan, too!! I have a small one that I travel's a must have. ;) And, I love giving gifts...if only I could use someone else's money to buy the gifts, that would be great.

Oh, and I do this .......

A LOT!! ;)

I am cracking up at the sleep with a fan thing. We are sisters!!! I need white noise and a cold room. If there is no fan I have to sleep uncovered and with earplugs!!! Seriously!
