The Honest Scrap Award

I got a blog award, Woohoo!

Angie, over at Home Grown, honored me with the Honest Scrap award.

This is how it works:

The Honest Scrap” award is not one to hold all to your self but it must be shared!

First, the recipient has to tell 10 true things about themselves in their blog that no one else knows.

Second, the recipient has to pass along this prestigious award to 10 more bloggers.

Third, Those 10 bloggers all have to be notified they have been given with this award.

Those 10 bloggers that receive this award should link back to the blog that awarded them “The Honest Scrap’ award.

So here goes:

1. I learned how to shear my dogs, one of which could put a sheep to shame with it's fur. Saved $75 on one dog and $45 on another. The shears have already paid for themselves.

2. I am a night owl, not a morning person. My brain doesn't begin fully functioning until around 6pm.

3. I've jumped on the Dave Ramsey debt reduction program. It will be a while 'til we are debt free.

4. I never paint my fingernails, just my toenails. It's too much trouble and I'm too rough on my hands for it to last anyway.

5. I like to blame mistakes on being blonde. It's very convenient.

6. I have aspirations to be an alpaca farmer one day.

7. We originally got the idea to raise alpaca way before I got into spinning and knitting which is kinda funny. We saw them on a late night infomercial and thought they were so cute. It started out as a joke between us and now it's gotten serious. Funny how that kind of thing works huh?

8. We own some rental homes. Our renters think we're rich, boy are they mistaken. We got the rentals when the mortgage companies were practically throwing mortgages at people. All the money has gone right back into the business, we haven't seen a penny yet. We consider it a very long term investment.

9. I dance! Tap, Jazz, Clogging - Just started following Belly Dance lessons off of Youtube, but there's no way I'll let anyone see me doing those lessons (the three year old doesn't count.)

10. Like Angie, I wish I got more comments on the blog, but doesn't everyone who has one? Except maybe the Yarn Harlot. She get's plenty. :) Does anyone ever tag her with these kind of awards?

Whew! Now to honor others with the Honest Scrap Award. Here are ten blogs that I enjoy immensely and I hope you'll enjoy them as well:
