It’s a major award!

I won my first blog award! It’s the Honest Scrap award and it was given to me by the wonderfully talented Spring.

Here are the official rules and regulations:
A) List 10 honest things about yourself-and make them interesting, even if you have to dig deep!
B) Pass the award on to 7 bloggers who you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap and whose blogs you find brilliant in design or content.

Since I’m pretty much an open book, there may not be a whole lot that you don’t already know about me, but I’ll try to think of some things that I haven’t mentioned before.
Here are Ten Honest Things About Jill:

1) I am a big baby. I can not watch scary movies or movies with a ghostly/demonic theme because I have a very active imagination and will scare myself silly if I watch these kinds of things before bed. So I avoid them at all costs.
2) I have a love/hate relationship with being the center of attention. I always think I want attention, but then when I get it, I really just want to run and hide.
3) The thought of decorating my bedroom paralyzes me. I am so afraid of making the wrong choice, that I make no choice at all. We moved into our current home about 6 years ago, and my bedroom looks very much the same as when we moved in – plain jane and BORING.
4) I have beginner’s luck. Seriously, if there is a drawing or if I’m playing a game for the first time, I usually win. After the first time though, my luck runs out.
5) I can not sleep if I haven’t brushed my teeth before bed.
6) When I was 9 years old, I begged God every night to create a part for me on the Dukes of Hazard. I was in love with John Schneider.
7) I have an American Idol crush on Danny Gokey, who looks a lot like my Hollywood crush Robert Downey, Jr. I loves me some dark haired bad boys!
8) Even with my love for RDJ, I am seriously in love with my husband. I still get butterflies when he looks at me a certain way!
9) I desperately desperately despereately want to be out of debt!
10) If it weren’t for blogging, I think I would be certifiably crazy. Honest.
Okay, here’s who I am passing the award along to (and if I nominate you, and you don’t want to play, that’s totally okay!):

  1. This was fun to read, Jill. But the pressure of coming up with 10 things for my blog? I’m almost paralyzed with the thought of it–ha!

    Anyways, on #1, I am right there with you. I used to be kind of proud that I read those scary books, and watched scary movies, and they when I was about your age, I realized that wasn’t such a good idea. And even now, it comes back to haunt me, like last night when I went out to feed the cat after dark, and had to run up the stairs to the house to get away from the scary monster that might be waiting to nab me in the dark. Seriously, what you allow in your mind should be taken VERY seriously.

    And on #9, I am passionate about that. I think I was your age or a little older when I decided that I wanted to be out of debt, and that I was a person who just couldn’t handle credit cards. I haven’t had a credit card for probably over 15 years, and I don’t even think about it anymore. It is very freeing.

  2. Thanks for the award!!! I’m unworthy.

    I can’t even imagine coming up with 10 honest things aboit moi since I’m the sad sack telling my woes . . . ahem.

    Anyway, I give it a try though.

    Thanks again.

  3. Thanks girl! I’ll get right on it!!

    We are so much alike it’s scary–
    #1–I never ever saw the scary movies in HS (Freddie Kruger & all those). Terrifying. The scariest movie I ever saw was Rosemary’s Baby & it was in college with my roommates. I had no idea what it was & it’s not scary like the new scary movies. But I still have flash backs to the evilness sometimes. It was truly awful–I couldn’t sleep, had to read & hold my Bible just to cope after seeing that thing!

    #2, #9, & #10–all me, as well.

    I’m gonna have to noodle on stuff you guys don’t know about me yet. I think I’ve probably written about it all the past 3 years.

  4. Okay…

    So I’ve seen this post everyday that I’ve come to your blog, but I’m SO afraid of doing it.

    You’re so much more interesting than I am. No lie. I want to do it, but what if it sucks?


    1. I’M more interesting than you WF???? Are you nuts???? I’m plain-jane middle America average white girl – you are hot young Latina with job that takes you to Israel among other places! That alone makes you more interesting than me! AND you are a great writer – I know you can think of ten honest things about yourself!!

      Having said all that – if you don’t want to do it, you don’t have to! I’ll still read your blog every day if you don’t. 🙂
