Honest Scrap

A few days/weeks ago now, I was given the Honest Scrap Award by Shoshonah at From L.A. to LA and Jane at The Diary of Jane. The rules for this award are as follows:

• List ten honest things about yourself that your blogging friends do not know about you.
• Give the award away to seven (or 10?) bloggers.
• Let the seven (or 10?) bloggers know they have received the award.
• Link back to the person who awarded you.

This was hard because I feel like I have already said so much, but here it goes…

1. Even though I am 100% Southern, I hate sweet tea and am horrible about sending “thank you” notes.

2. This is probably TMI…I have not had a pedicure all summer and today my right heel started peeling! Like huge chunks of dead skin. It is horrible and even painful! I should’ve just sucked it up and spent the $40. Any suggestions now?

3. I am not very disciplined. I will start a kick but within a few days it all goes to crap. I guess the first step is admitting you have a problem huh?

4. I hate when girls who were in my sorority in college act more snobbish than girls I never talked to in high school whenever I run in to them now. What is up with that?! And it always seems to be some of the younger ones who have now turned in to Stepford Wives…maybe that is why they used to haze them back in the day…nowadays they just have no respect.

5. I have a love/hate relationship with gossip. It’s hard to explain.

6. I get mad when I think about all the weddings I have gone to and spent tons of money on and now those girls have fallen off the face of the earth and will probably never pay back the favor. Bitter? Me? No Way!

7. Witty guy and I did not work out. We were just too different and could never get on the same page so we decided to call it quits again, but try to remain friends. Breaking up when no one really did anything wrong is just hard.

8. My body is a hot mess right now. I am bigger than I have ever been and I hate it. I avoid pictures like the plague. I do deep knee lunges to stretch out my jeans. I wear the same work pants every week because I only have about 4 that fit right now. It is terrible.

9. I won Ping-Pong Champion one year at summer camp when I was a teenager but that didn’t seem to translate to Beer Pong skills in college.

10. I love making/admiring/eating cupcakes of all kinds! There is just something about them that is so cute and scrumptious!

I pass this award on to:

Erica at Planting Daisies

Ashley at Ashley as Aurora

I HATE sweet tea. When I lived in North Carolina, servers always brought out the sweet tea to everyone like it was water.

I'm not a big fan of my feet, and don't normally get pedicures because honestly I don't want anyone else to have to deal with my feet either. There are times when I have a lot of dead skin, and I've tried using files to get rid of it, but honestly I think it just makes everything worse.

I'm right there with you as far not having pants that fit and feeling pretty crappy about the state of my body! I'm trying to get back to eating better and walking the dogs every day.

If you have kosher or coarse salt, use it to exfoliate your feet every day in the shower. It's cheaper than using those fancy scrubs...or regular pedicures!

In a perfect world, I would be able to afford weekly (or even just monthly) pedicures. :-)

Kirsten said...

I found your blog though Carolyn's and I love it! I just wanted to introduce myself and say hi :-)

And if it makes you feel better, I've been so broke that I haven't had a pedicure since NOVEMBER. My feet are so not summer appropriate!

too funny about the jeans...i do that too!

I've started wearing big shirts to work and then leaving my pans unbuttoned.

Hoping all this running will put me back into all of my old clothes!
