Award Season is Upon Us...

And not just for the celebs, but also for lil Mrs. Jetplane. I received this awesome award from Mrs. Potts at Experiments in a Galley Kitchen. Thank you so much, I really, truly appreciate it.

The rules are as follows
1) Choose a minimum of 7 blogs that you find brilliant in content or design.

2) Show the 7 winners names and links on your blog, and leave a comment informing them that they were prized with "Honest Scrap." Well, there's no prize, but they can keep the nifty icon.

3) List at least 10 honest things about yourself.

I'll start with 10 honest things about myself....

1. I'm messy. I hate cleaning and picking up after myself. This bothers Mr. Jetplane to no end. Thank God, I didn't marry someone as messy as me.

2. I talk to my dog like he's a human. I'm one of those weird people. Milo is one of my best friends, we talk about all sorts of things. He's quite a good listener, he never seems to interrupt me.

3. I have a unhealthy love of Tostitino's party pizzas. It developed when I was young, lil Bro Jetplane and I used to split that pizza in half, 4 slices to me and 4 slices to him. Unfortunately now, I want to eat all 8 pieces, and do. Yes, I know it horribly fattening, and this is me not caring.
4. I never drank diet soda until last year. I was adamant that I hated diet soda, and actually that is still true. I will only drink the following diet sodas - Dt. DP and Cherry Coke Zero. I did this before the wedding and b/c Mr. Jetplane wanted diet soda in the house.
5. I'm addicted to Facebook. It is sorta unhealthy. I somewhat stalk people when I can look through other people's photos. I'm not their friend, but can look through their pictures when they tag one of my friends. Shhh... don't tell.

6. I don't have a relationship with my biological father. I haven't really had one since I was 14 or so. My parents split when I was 5. It may sound horrible to some, but I don't care to have a relationship with my biological father.

7. I've been in love 3 times. Once my senior year of high school with a guy, we'll call Mr. TooTall, he was a year older than me, we thought we'd be together forever. 2nd time was in college, we'll call him Mr. Baseball. We were best friends from freshman year to senior year, started "dating" sophomore year. We were somewhat boyfriend/girlfriend, it was very complicated. He changed my outlook on everything and really made me the person I am today. 3rd is Mr. Jetplane, he's a perfect example of a "rebound" relationship turning into something truly special.

8. I'm really nervous about having kids. The whole process freaks me out. I want to have kids, I really do, I think. But I'm so scared of physically giving birth to them and then taking care of them. I'm overwhelmed with 2 dogs sometimes, and people really frown upon putting kids in crates while you go to work, or so I'm told.

9. If I could, I would like to plan and do my wedding all over again. I did everything myself. Somethings went wrong, and I still think back and wish I could have made things better. Everyone tells me I'm crazy, but I can't help it. #1 thing, I never really liked my wedding dress, and I tried on atleast 100.

10. I like to sleep on the Mr.'s side of the bed. I prefer to fall asleep on that side. I miss sleeping next to him so much. When he was in flight school, he'd leave ridiculously early and every morning I'd roll over to his side of the bed and go back to sleep. I liked to put my face in his pillow, so I could smell him. He doesn't wear any cologne, but he has this manly yet clean scent to him.

Now, I'm suppose to give this award to 10 other people. I'm horrible at this. If you have already been awarded this, I apologize.

1. Ms. Nonsense - she makes me miss Indy so much. And I'm totally jealous of her closet.

2. d.a.r - I am so amazed at how strong she is. I hope when Mr. Jetplane is deployed, I can be as strong as her.

3. Becca - I adore her 2 blogs, and I credit her with getting me in touch with other mil wives. Check out her blog headers, she is very talented.

4. Some Like it Southern - I can't wait for Baby A to make an appearance.

5. Piper Jacquelyn - I've recently found her blog and really love it.

6. Sara - Another mil wife that I've recently met. Her hubby just got back from Iraq. Women like her, are truly and inspiration to me.

you are definitely not alone...i too have an INSANE OBSESSION with Tostino's Pizza's (especially the pepperoni)...and I too can eat an entire pizza on my own!! AHHHHHHHH now I am totally craving one!

jlc said...

Aren't these fun? I thought it was the best award ever.

You are too cute with your Mr. Ex's names. :)

Allison Hasel said...

I am so messy. I clean up food and dishes, but oh the piles! Piles of clothes, piles of magazines, piles of bills, piles will be the death of me.

As far as having children, I thought I was the ONLY military wife who felt that Way! I am freaking terrified to have a child. For starters, childbirth is miserable and you're right, crating your kid is not a good idea! Glad to know I'm not the only one.

1. The ONLY diet soda I have in my fridge right now is diet dr. pepper and cherry coke zero.
2. I don't have a relationship with my biological father- my parents divorced when I was 4 and really stopped seeing/talking to him when I was a teenager.
3. I ALWAYS move over to Country's side of the bed when he gets up in morning.

I love when people I don't know tag my friends and I get to see their albums...I feel like it gives me a sneak peek into other people's worlds...besides, sometimes I get new ideas about new places to try or things to do.

Brittany said...

Thanks for the award, lady!!! I chuckled when I read your comment about having kids- I couldn't have said it better myself! I don't think the crate thing would work so well either!

rebecca said...

Lol, I'm messy too. If Jason wasn't around to keep me in check, ack!

Look me up on Facebook! :)

You can email me at LovelyYellowRibbons@gmail.com for my real email addy!

Unknown said...

What!? You did not like your wedding dress, now I feel like a huge failure! 1st not be at your wedding and now not for being a good friend and go shopping with you more than once!! I am so sorry! what a horrible friend..

By the way I stalk your blog daily to see whats new in your world and I can't wait for the phone call to tell me your prego...

Miss you supr duper much, its almost been a year {tear}

Blue-Eyed Bride said...

you're hilarious!:) i talk to my doggies like they're humans, too.

Mrs. Not-so-Domesticated said...

I'm thinking that we're too much alike. I buy Tostino's pizzas "for the hubby" except that he really doesn't like them so I get to eat them.

I get really frustrated when I can't get on peoples facebook pages and try to find ways to check it out...

I have things that I'd like to redo for my wedding too...little things that really didn't make a difference to anyone else but I'm going to remember it always.

And obviously, I'm already a weird dog lady...

I'm off to watch Big Love on DVR!
Congrats on your award!

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

Yay for your award! I love Tostino's pizza as well. I was raised on them! I also talk to my dog like she is a human. They really are the best listeners!

d.a.r. said...

Yay thanks for the tag. You are so sweet!!!

And yes--I am the same way about my biological father. You are not the only one.

Talking to your dog like he is a human is a bad thing? Hmmm wait until you see my 10 Honest Things :)

Piper Jacquelyn said...

Aw, thanks for the recognition & award! You're too sweet! And yes, I, like everyone else reading, also loves the Tostino's! Who doesn't, honestly?!!

Mrs. Potts said...

It isn't bad - I didn't meet my father until I was 13 and we have had an up and down time of it. We're close now, but it took us almost 20 years to get here.
I too, would like to redo some things about my wedding. Tweak some things, different dress....I completely understand!!

Becca said...

As soon as K. leaves in the morning, I immediately roll over to his side too! He thinks it's hilarious.

Perfectly Imperfect said...

I know this is an old post, but I recently found your blog and had to comment on this one!!

I too love Tostin's Pizza and always eat my own!! I don't care at all about calories when I'm eating one of these!! I also completely Facebook stalk people! And always go through their friend's albums (what a great invention!) I secretly also get a thrill when I find someone in my network whose profile isn't private! SCORE!! Love your blog!!!
