Honest Scrap

Hi everyone! We were awarded the honest scrap award about a week ago and have just now gotten the chance to do it. Sorry this is late! Anyway, here are the rules:

1. Say thanks and link to the person who gave you the award. (Thank you, Anna and Miss Raquel!) :D

2. Share ten "honest" things about yourself.

3. Award this to seven people who's blog design/content you admire or who have encouraged you, and inform them of their win and of the rules of this award.

We are going to *try* to think of 10 things that apply to both of us.... we'll see how this goes!

1. We LOVE to read. (Our cousin thinks that's all we do. Haha.... it's not.) Christian devotionals, adventure, and everything in between.
2. We sing a lot..... sometimes too much. Whether we have music or not.
3. Photography is a favorite pastime... especially flowers and our adorable siblings. :D
4. Soccer is our favorite sport. Andrea....obsessed. Marissa...just likes playing. :D haha
5. We like to bake and cook. We have fun making up recipes, which sometimes are delicious and once in a while are a disaster!!!
6. Our friend Erin's chocolate chip cookies are our favorite. Sorry.... running out of ideas here....
7. Andrea likes neon and bright colors, Marissa likes brown, blue, green (fall colors!).
8. Marissa-perfectionist. Andrea-........
9. Our whole family loves the country, but so far God has kept us in a neighborhood. His plan is perfect and He is teaching us patience through it all! Your prayers about this would be very much appreciated. (That His will would be done and we would learn whatever it is that He is trying to teach us.)
10. Most of the time there is some instrument being played in our house!

That was not easy! :D And I guess they are not all about both of us. We're alike in many ways, but not all!!!

This is probably against the rules, but we're going to skip the awards. There are just way too many excellent blogs and encouraging bloggers out there. Thank you so much for faithfully keeping up your wonderful blogs and glorifying the King! You are such blessings!

Serving Him,
Marissa and Andrea

I really enjoyed reading your ten honest things, girls!! I totally understand about running out of ideas. I did this tag/award last week, and at the end, I was really having a hard time thinking of interesting facts about myself. lol! :D Anyway, I hope y'all are having a blessed week!

~ Love,

I love reading 10 honest things! I really enjoy that part of this award. There is usually always singing or laughing at my! I love it though! Especially when the Christmas music is playing and you smell gingerbread cookies baking. :)
