WOOHOOIE! and I need your help!

while I was gone I was given 2 wonderful blogging awards and I am honored! 

S'moly Bonkers!!!!  I received...I am blushing...the Honest Scrap Award from Nolie at Nolie's Place.

Nolie is a SAHM who shares stories about her Little Man, puppy and other life experiences on her blog.  THANK YOU Nolie - I am touched!

I was curious about the award and wanted to learn more. So I did a little research, and while I didn't find out where Honest Scrap Award originated, I did find that it is meant to be awarded to "Bloggers who put their heart on display as they write from the depths of their soul." And to that, I am overwhelmed!

There are rules for this award. Which are that I must post 10 Honest Tidbits about myself and pass the award onto other bloggers.

1. I am considering doing a half marathon in October 2010 - but I hate to run.  EEK! (should I do it?)
2. For a short time after college, I worked night shift on a cleaning crew at my hometown movie theater.
3. For the past 20 years I have struggled with my weight and body-image issues.
4. I love to organize things...but I have a hard time staying organized.
5. I lived in Chicago (in the city) at the ages 23-25 and I loved the experience.
6. In high school I was in Marching Band - for 2 years I held (I played horribly, so most of the time I just moved my fingers and pretended to play) the frumpet (a marching french horn) and the last two year I twirled a flag - which I loved.
7. After college, I didn't know what I was going to do, but I planned to "get out of Ohio and never come back."  While I do not live in my hometown again - I am back and have been living in Ohio for 13 years.
8. I love learning.  I always strive to learn something new.
9. When I was working on a college campus, I was responsible for putting on a Maroon 5 concert.
10. Finally, at the age of 40, I feel comfortable in my own skin.

As far as passing on the award...I need your help!
While I do have a few ideas, the task of deciding which bloggers are deserving of this award is OVERWHELMING!  I am looking for suggestions from you all! 
Please let me know about blogs that you think are honest and deserving of this award! 
I will follow up with another post listing the winners - based on your suggestions!  THANK YOU! 

I can not believe it...When it rains, it pours!!!!  Tylaine from Just Me, was so kind to give me the Sunshine Award...again, blushing!  Tylaine has a wonderful blog where she shares stories fo her life.  She is a SAHM with three beautiful children that are her little pieces of heaven.  Tylaine - THANK YOU!

"The Sunshine Award is awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others in the blogging world.”

Of course, awards come with rules…
1. Put the logo on your blog and/or within your post.
2. Pass the award on to twelve bloggers.
3. Link to the nominees within your post.
