Honest Scrap- The remix

The ever so witty and brilliant Lucinda of Chateau de Lu was kind enough to honor me with the Honest Scrap Award. I stumbled onto Lucinda's blog back in the day because of a hysterical comment she'd left on SGM. It had my sides splitting with laughter. Now, she can't get rid of me. So here's how this award works...

1) Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award.
2) Share "10 Honest Things" about myself. (Don't blame me if you don't like my answers. She asked! Lodge your complaint(s) with Lucinda.)
3) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.
4) Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.

  1. I think a hairy chest (within reason- no bears!) on a man is sexy. I don't like smooth boys it's too feminine for me.
  2. I burp like a dude and always blame it on the nearest cat. "Cookie! Act like a lady, dirty little bitch!" I know, I'm not fooling anyone but it makes me feel better.
  3. I'm a procrastinator.
  4. I have a pretty extensive collection of rare gemstones. Chica rocks the rocks y'all.
  5. I'm terrified that once I give birth I'm going to slowly and unwittingly slip into the role of a mommy blogger!! BARF!! You must stop me if I carry on too much, o.k.? Promise you will. Pinky swear?!
  6. My heart melts watching my husband as he pets and loves on the cats. They ADORE him.
  7. I love to pop pimples. I know it's bad, don't judge.
  8. I'm am not a crazy cat lady- I'm an ailurophile.
  9. I heard my husband tell me he loved me on our 3rd date. We were walking from the bar, across Union Square and he was showing me the stairs he used to do jumps off (skater). I was so nervous that since he'd been drinking and would regret having blurting it out once the alcohol wore off that I pretended I didn't hear him and kept right on talking as though it never happened. I'd already fallen in love with him too.
  10. We're having a baby girl.
You know, I've done this once before so if you want to read another 10 honest things about me you can check out that post here.

Tag- You're it!
  1. Jenny at Spry On The Wall- She's the best!
  2. Anita at Pillow Mint- I want to get in her sheets. Hey now! She sells gorgeous bedding. What did you think I meant?!
  3. Urban Flea- I'm just so glad she's back since she's got one of the few design blogs that always inspires me.
  4. Anthony at Pop Circus- He cracks me up and has one awesome blog.
  5. David Toms at Savior Faire- His blog makes me aspire.
  6. ks at Return to Bohemia- I just love her posts. It's always a joy to read.
  7. Rebecca at A Different View- She friggin' rocks and she gives great green.

Megan said...

A GIRL! SO EXCITING! I hope you pass on the cat lady, errr, ailurophile gene. And that she gets her Mom's great taste! Congratulations!

Anthony said...

Wham! Bam! Thank you, maam!
This is my very first blog award, so I am quite honored!

It's nice to know when someone really "gets you". And it's even better when that someone goes out of their way to give you a shout-out AND a token of their appreciation in the form of an Honest Scrap Award! Believe me, I will proudly display it!

Congratulations, on your little TownhouseGIRL! That is exciting! But hadn't you already mentioned that in a previous post, or am I having a stroke? I seem to remember teasing you about her demanding D&G diapers, or something. Whatever. It will always be exciting, no matter how many times you announce it!

Now, about that nasty pimple-popping habit...

The Townhouselady said...

Thanks guys!

Jill- I appreciate it and trust you'll keep an eye out for the Over the top posts.

Pillow- I think we'll be keeping the name under wraps until the unveiling.

Megan- if she ends up being a dog person she's shit out of luck since I'm allergic and I wouldn't torture a dog by putting him around so many cats. That'd be just so wrong.

Anthony- Nope, never mentioned it b/c we just found out. D&G diapers? ROFL!! How insulting would that be? Here's what I think of your fancy diapers, tinkle, poop! Take that Domenico and Stefan!

Couture Carrie said...

Wow ~ congrats on #10! How exciting, darling!


Dobbygirl said...

AAAAHHHH!! First, I'm just so darn excited you are having a little girl!!!! Next, I'm so honored, I'll have to do the post a little later seeing that I'm tapping away on my Sister-In-Laws laptop at almost 11pm on Friday. I'm still without the internet and will be for a few more days. I promise I will do my post when I get the chance!!! Oh and did I mention that after my interview today (which won't work out, but hey it could be some freelance stuff eventually) that I found out my Paypal account was hacked. Yeah, it's been one of those days. However this post made my day! Awwww, a little girl....

#5. I think your world will expand and not become insulated. Yes, there is so much to write about with the addition of a bebe, but you are a well-rounded individual with many passions.
