And the Award Goes to...

The talented Chelsea from Design a la mod has given me my first blogging award! Thanks!

Here are the rules of the award:

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.

Here goes. I'll try to make this as exciting as possible...

10.) I am a direct descendant of Jefferson Davis.

9.) I am also a descendant of Pinckney, who signed the Declaration of Independence.

8.) My mom seriously considered naming me Pinckney, and would have called me Pinky for short...that would have been fun. (sarcasm detected).

7.) My dad sounds like he walked off a southern plantation yesterday. He says things like "holler", "yonder", "dahlin", "dubyah" (i.e. 'w',) and "ol" (i.e. 'oil').

6.) I have 4 nieces and nephews and one of my nieces is older than me (none of them call me Aunt Sloane. phew.)

5.) When I've had a few drinks ask me about something historical. Chances are I'll give you a history lesson about one of the following: Henry VIII, Anne Boleyn, Elizabeth I, Marie Antoinette, or Napoleon Bonaparte (Yup, I'm about as cool as they come)

4.) I love challenges...I've biked 1500 miles across Europe one summer in high school, run a 10K military style obstacle course in mud, run a half marathon, and am open to any suggestions for my next challenge.

3.) I started walking when I was 7 months. I like to think that has something to do with my love of running, but it probably doesn't.

2.) Although I was an early walker I was not an early talker. And when I did finally start talking it sounded like another language since I apparently had a hearing problem (which has since been cured, don't worry).

1.) And, last but not least, if I could be anything I wanted to, and be successful at it, I would be an author. Any publishers out there? ;-)

And now for the 7 fabulous blogs:
