Aw, Thank You Jocelyn!

Good Morning Ladies,

My gracious and fabulous friend, Jocelyn, honored me with the Honest Scrap award. If you do not know Jocelyn, I would love to introduce you. She has an amazing blog, the most beautiful boys to scrap, and is one of the most creative ladies I know. Jump over to her blog and say hello. Thanks Jocelyn for thinking of me and right back at you, girl! Hugs!

Here is how it works....
*Say thank you and give a link to the presenter of the award
*Share “10 Honest Things” about myself
*Present the award to 9 other bloggers whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design or to those who have encouraged me
*Be sure to tell the 9 bloggers chosen that you are giving them the Honest Scrap award and provide the guidelines for them.
Here is my list of honest things: eeek...

1. I love teaching my third grade kiddos but I am struggling with all the other "stuff" that is part of it this year. I want to know when I can just "teach" and not be a paper and pencil pusher....

2. My nieces and nephews are my LIFE. I could not live with out them. Nee Nee loves you so much! Kiss, kiss!

3. I am really enjoying some Pumpkin Spice coffee this morning while the temps are in the upper 30's. That's right fall is here in the mountains of Kentucky!

4. I wish to go on a mission trip anywhere that I can make a difference in the life of a child.

5. I have student this year that I would love to adopt and call my daughter. She is such a sweet little girl living in a difficult situation. I pray for her and her family everyday.

6. My favorite color right now is yellow.

7. I can't wait until the Honeybee gets the fireplace fired up. I love to snuggle down on a chilly evening by the warmth of the fire.

8. I was recently named DT Leader (along with Kerri) at Practical Scrappers.

9. I am beginning my Christmas shopping this weekend. I have a HUGE list, got to get started early.

10. I turned 40 in June and I think 40 is FAB!
