Here are the rules that you agree to when you accept this award: "When you receive the prize, you must write a post showing it, together with the name of who has given it to you, and link them back. Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in their content or design. Show their names and links and leave them a comment informing that they were prized with 'Honest Weblog'. List [if you can and/or dare] at least ten honest things about yourself. Then, pass it on!"

Oh my goodness.....honest scrap huh!! OK here it goes....

1. I got pregnant on prom night with Meg(I was 16)....when John took me to the doctor's to confirm that I was the nurse kept talking about alternatives....I said nothing to her. I walked out the door, looked at John who was waiting in the my expression he knew. We said nothing....he drove to Paradise park and parked under a tree by the lake. We both cried and hugged and then I told him what the nurse said to me....he took my chin and said, I guess we should get married". Yep, that's how I got engaged!!! Not all romantic....but he has made up for it over the last 22 years.

2. I was scared to death moving to a different state when I was 17....married and a baby! I was a baby myself!!! Honestly though being a mom and wife came natural to me.

3. I love coffee.....Costa Rican coffee is my favorite!! Meg & Tori brought me back a bag when Meg studied there this summer (Tori went for vacation) I order it on-line now!!!

4. I'm OCD when it comes to a clean house. I like it clean and organized! Good thing is John is exactly the same way!

5. I collect antique glass. Depression glass, milk glass, fenton glass, carnival....etc! I have so much of it, I had to stop for awhile because I ran out of room. :(

6. I love to bake and give it away. I'll keep a little bite or two for John & I but the rest I give away. Baking relaxes me.

7. I can't wait to have grandbabies!!! John & I were talking last night about how much we miss the girls being little. Yes, I cried! Anyway, I have a hope chest that I started to fill with toys and little outfits and whatnots for my future grandbabies!!!!

8. I have to have ALL doors shut before I get in the bed....closet & bathroom. It freaks me out if they are open. Tori is the same way.

9. I sing and dance around the house when I'm cleaning with the radio on the 80's station! Sometimes I do it when I'm cooking. It might sound silly but I'm getting in that extra cardio and burning some calories.

10. I'm always LATE for everything. When my Dad was alive he use to always say I should have named you Betty Late 'cause you are never on time.

Well, there you have it. I'm now supposed to pass these on to 7 people. Everyone knows I don't always follow the rules when it comes to awards and tags. So consider yourself tagged and this awards for you!!!

I need to go get ready for church usual I am late!!!!

That's so exciting for Tori's friend! I had to go to her mother's blog & read her story about the engagement... that's so sweet! :) I hope that happens for Tori & Nick sometime in the future... :)

& I'M SO EXCITED BECAUSE I GET TO SEE YOU & MR. JOHN SO SOON! I told Tori that we MUST go to Cabot & see you. Your blog makes me miss you every time you post something new. Haha, I guess that's why I cry every time I leave your house in Cabot. You & Mr. John just mean so much to me!

Love you, Mrs. Betty! ♥
