Let's Be Honest!

Let's be honest.... Even with the silly looking cone around his neck, Lucky IS an adorable dog!
But let's also be honest and say, it really is quite funny to see him try and sniff around the yard for the perfect spot to do his business. He practically flips himself over when his cone gets stuck in the grass.

Let's be honest....this cookie looks pretty scrumptious doesn't it???

But to be perfectly's not really a cookie. It's Fitnessista's Breakfast cookie recipe....but it WAS scrumptious!

Let's be honest...these brown rice California rolls I bought at Whole Foods was all I ate at for lunch yesterday.

I took the kids to Disney's Hollywood Studios yesterday, and to be completely honest, the California rolls were NOT a good choice, b/c they were NOT filling enough, didn't have ANY greens in them, and left me starvin marvin, which led to some pretty unfavorable choices at the park!

Let's be honest...what boy doesn't want to build his own Jedi Lightsaver??? Even if it means paying mommy back from his allowance when we get home.
But to be perfectly honest...we got home to find, he didn't even have enough to cover the bill...Swindler!!!

Let's be honest...We all looked rather silly in our 3D glasses on the Toy Story Mania ride.

To be honest though....who cares! It was no holds barred...we were the rootiness, shootiness, cowpokes around! I took top score...yee haw!

Let's be was a drizzly yucky kinda day, and being the prepared mom I was, we improvized and used some extra shirts to keep the rain off our heads while we waited for the Fantasmic show to start!
But to be completely honest...I will NEVER, and I mean EVER, go back to that show again! I was so disappointed in the Mouse folks here. The show was great, but the exit plan they have, one of the worst I have encountered. Just envision 10,000 people exiting a show thru one spot and everyone crammed like sardines to get thru that hole. Now envision trying to keep your children by your side, without them getting trampled. I was mad. I couldn't believe it. Definitely not Disney at its finest.

Let's be honest...we came there to really see the Osborne Family Lights they put up annually.
But to be honest...when we turned the corner and saw the amount of people in the streets, we decided that this one shot would be enough to say we saw it!

Let's be're about ready for all this honesty to be done, right?

Well, my friend Rachel, gave me this blog award! I know Rachel thru our church we attend and have gotten to know her much better thru all our homeschooling activities we do together with our group of awesome friends! Thanks Rachel for the award!!! I would link back to her blog, but it's private!

Rules for the award:
1. Must thank the person who gave you the award and list their blog and link it.

2. Share "10 Honest things" about yourself.

3. Present this award to 7 others whose blogs you find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged you.

4. Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving the award. here they go:

1. I used to race motorcycles as a child. I had a Kawasaki 80 dirt bike.

2. I did some modeling and acting as a child as well. I was even casted for a television show called, The Back Alley Gang. It was similar to the Little Rascals. Unfortunately we never made it past the pilot stage. I wonder what my life would have been like had it succeeded.

3. We had a double wedding. My husband's brother got married with us. Although it was a HUGE wedding it actually felt very intimate. People ask me all the time what it was like sharing the day with another bride...that part NEVER bothered me. I just wanted to marry Preston. Whether that meant by myself, with four other brides, alone or with 10,000 people. I wanted the marriage, not the wedding.

4. My degree is in Food and Nutrition Science. Basically it's useless since I never went on to do my internship or my Masters in order to get my R.D. status. Although I'm a stay at home mom and don't envision myself working again, it still would be nice to have gotten that designation.

5. I often wake up in the middle of the night and find that my one arm is raised high in the air while I'm rubbing it (in my sleep) with the other arm! Strange, I know...

6. I cut my own hair. I've dabbled with cutting my own hair since I was young. While now I style my own hair, when I was younger whenever I was stressed, etc. I would often be found in the bathroom trimming something on my head. I've tried to grow my hair out umpteen times, but it never fails...I can't keep the scissors out of my hand.

7. I homeschool my children. This is something that I always thought was great for other people, I NEVER ever thought it was something I would do, nor want to do. My oldest did one year in a private school and has now been home since. It is not easy, but it is most definitely GREATLY rewarding. Not really sure I could see us doing it any other way!

8. I have this "tell" that my husband actually picked up on. Whenever I'm uncomfortable with a situation, unhappy about something, thinking about how to word my words, I bite the inside corner of my mouth. I give myself away everytime with him!

9. I would love to sell everything we have to go be missionaries somewhere. I'd want to bring my mom along with us too! :)

10. I am a goal setter. I like BIG lofty goals. Then I like to steam ahead full throttle until that goal is achieved. But once it's done, I'm over it and want something new to conquer. This can sometimes be a bad thing AND a good thing. Great for tackling the what seems impossible. Not so good for every day stuff that still has to be done. I do BIG really well, hate the mundane little stuff that needs accomplishing.

So there you go. Ten things about me! Now I get the honor of choosing 7 people to pass this honor onto!


  1. Awwwwwwwwww wow, you put a HUGE smile on my face!!!

    And poor Lucky! My pup, Molly, has been having a hard time recently too (she's not feeling well). Hopefully they'll both get well soon! :)

  2. There are two ways in and two ways out the lights. You can around the back and get out to the left. It is the way we usually go in.

  3. This post was so cute Tiffanie, but let's be honest- not as cute as Lucky!! Teehee..ok that was totally lame, but he really is an adorable dog.

    Thank you for honoring me with that award! It will force me to blog again, right? :)

  4. BTW I never knew you cut your own hair, that's awesome!! My friend has a short haircut like you and it's so darn cute...she does her own hair too, but she's a hair dresser. I forgot that you had a degree in food & nutrition science, too. I frequently think about going back to school to get my Master's in something like that...

  5. How interesting about the double wedding. I love how you said it didn't matter to you because all you wanted was to get married to your husband!
