Honest Scrap!

Honest Scrap! Rebecca June just gave me a blog award, Woohoo! Thank you Rebecca!

Here are the rules:

1. Say Thank You and give a link to the presenter of the award

2. Share “10 Honest Things” about myself

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 that they have been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines

So here goes:

1. I became hideously allergic to my dog when I got pregnant.

2. I broke my nose 3 times in the last 1o years.

3. I have no feeling in my right index finger.

4. I love DIY projects, but I never finish them.

5. I LOVE Howard Stern. Seriously, I listen to him all day while I hang out in my house.

6. I hate driving or going in cars.

7. I love cooking. Especially asian-style in my wok, or putting together non-cook meals.

8. I like backpacking on vacation better than staying in the Four Seasons.

9. I hate makeup and jewelry.

10. I cant read books anymore, because I will read non-stop until it’s finished and my husband gets pissed.

And now, for my favorite blogs. I gave you all a list like this last time, so now I am going to give you guys some new to me blogs that I have just started reading and am liking so far:

1. My Favorite and My Best

2. Room Envy

3. Atelier Abigail Ahern

4. Semigloss Chic

5. Kelly G Design

6. Decorno

7. Mustard Seed Collective

Thank you!

  1. hello! thanks for honoring me…i have participated in this before so please feel free to peruse my archives for my honest(ly retarded) answers.
    and i am now new to your blog and i likey. have added you to my b’roll. thanks for finding me!!
    p.s. i cannot for the life of me understand why your husband gets pissed at you for devouring a book. there is no way i would ever stop reading EVER. even if i never put it down. having a kid will prohibit that though. but never a husband.

      Glad you like the blog, I have been loving yours!
      So my husband isn’t a jerk, I become like a zombi and the baby ends up crying in her crib while I am in hiding reading on the toilet. I go on reading binges, I read four books in four days, then take a break for a few weeks. I’m a freak.

  2. Wow, Nicole, thank you so much for thinking of me. I have seen this on other blogs before and just new my time would come, and now it’s all thanks to you! I’m going to pass mine along this coming week, so keep an eye out for it if you can. Oh, and I love your breakdown of the MTV Video Awards. So on point!

  3. Thank you so so much for recognizing my blog – I am very excited! What is great about this too is that now I have found yours and have you bookmarked in my favorites. Love it!

    Sometimes I wonder if anyone is reading and am happy you are.

  4. Hi Nicole! Thanks so much for the blog award. I’m flattered! I’ll have to get thinking about all my honest answer to share. I’m glad you found my blog and are enjoying it. I love yours as well. Especially your blog header, is there a story behind it? Whats the image of?

    • Nicole Cohen says:

      Hey, these blog awards are obviously just a fun way to get more bloggers to be aware of each other, but they also provide us with a sometimes needed pat on the back that we can tout as evidence to the non-bloggers in our life who don’t get why we are wasting our time… “My blog got an award, mom!!”

      The header is a picture of a wall in a store I like called Space in Long Branch NJ. If you like the picture, you would LOVE the store!!
