honest scrap

kailey from peanut butter swirl and mitri from all in the oats both awarded me this:


thank you so much! you’re amazing and i love both of you! the people who gave this award to each of you are both pretty smart cookies. and i feel so special that you passed it onto me! apparently this award comes with rules. and they are…

1.) brag about it. (i’ll skip this one because i don’t like to boast! hehe.)

2.) hand it over to seven brilliant bloggers, and link to their blogs.

3.) list ten honest things about myself.

since i was given this award twice, i’m going to take advantage of that, and allow myself to give it to double the amount of bloggers! the fourteen brilliant bloggers i have chosen are (NOT IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE):

1.) caroline from broccoli hut for always cooking tofu dishes that make my mouth water.

2.) jess from have faith for her inspiration verses.

3.) gena from choosing raw for her knowledge, her welcoming and helpful personality, and her RAWMAZING recipes.

4.) heather from health, happiness, and hope for having such a positive outlook on life.

5.) heather from heather eats almond butter for teaching me how to make groats, coming up with the strangest combinations that actually work, and telling us the hilarious things that CD says.

6.) debbie from oh so ravenous for always being herself, talking honestly about everything, and being an inspiration to all girls.

7.) jenny from peanut butter and jenny for always providing us with a daily dose of comedy!

8.) nora from pride and vegudice, because she makes a lot of cookbook recipes that come out looking FABULOUS, therefore inspiring me to want to do the same.

9.) meg from sunshine ‘n spice for being such a crazy, loving, beautiful person who knows how to live life to the fullest!

10.) holly from the healthy everythingtarian for being such a moderate and balanced girl.

11.) bianca from vegan crunk because…do i even need to give a reason? her food makes me drool! she’s the ultimate vegan.

12.) erik from vegan fritz for answering every question i’ve ever asked him, making kick-ass groats, and sharing my love for soba noodles.

13.) veggie girl (i actually don’t know your first name, lovie!) for making me super jealous every time she posts pictures of her incredible new york eats.

14.) emily from nutritious is delicious for being such a sweetheart and always leaving me the nicest comments!

there are LOTS of other brilliant bloggers who i’m not awarding this to because i know that they’ve already gotten it, but otherwise would have certainly gotten this award from me. i’m sure you girls know who you are!

now for the ten honest things about myself. these are going to be totally random.

1.) i have spacial awareness issues and am constantly bumping into walls when i walk through doorways. not cute.

2.) i can’t take direction, follow direction, or remember direction.

3.) i hate not having a plan, but i don’t like committing to things too far in advance. kind of contradictory, huh?

4.) J.B. stands for jen brooke.

5.) i have a fifteen-year-old brother who has strange nicknames for me such as denver, water, vivian, and jenasis.

6.) i don’t drink.

7.) i think too hard about everything. i’m constantly stressing over something, and i absolutely hate it. i’m over-analytical.

8.) i’m double-jointed in my hip on both sides, and can pop it in and out. some people think it’s funny and some people think it’s freaky.

9.) i have a fascination with blood. i love getting it drawn, and i like to watch it go through the tube and fill up the viles.

1o.) i have a fear of backwash.

happy friday everyone!

but wait. i actually have two more things to say…

1.) if you know that i love/follow your blog, and you’re not on my blogroll yet, please tell me! i will put you on it!

2.) are there any things you’d like to see or read more of on my blog? random suggestions are completely welcome. πŸ™‚

    CD and I and both thank you for the bottom of our hearts. πŸ™‚

    NO way! I was “Jennifer Brooke” for a couple of days before my parents finally agreed on Heather.

    I don’t drink either, and I’m always walking into walls. Total klutz.

    Thanks again for the award. I’m honored.
