Honest Blogger Award

I'm probably more excited than I should be, but guess what? Precious-Gem nominated me for the "honest blogger award"! That's gal! And look what she said about me!!! "J.A.C...She speaks my language too and just as I'm thinking "it's just me", I read her thoughts and realize that it's not. I'm so glad that people are willing to be honest. Not to mention, her writing style is so romantic. It's so flowy and organic." That's fantastic! Mainly because I never think people actually read my ran-dumn thoughts and insane ramblings. When I have more than 4 comments, it's usually because I emailed out the link and BEGGED people to comment. But anyway, I really love my blog and wouldn't know where I would be without it or my personal journey. It's the purest form of j.a.c. therapy. So I appreciate the nomination from the bottom of my heart Precious-Gem. You made my day.

So per the rules, I'm supposed to nominate 7 other blogs that I believe are deserving of this award. Some of these bloggers have been nominated by others, but my list is my list. On your free time, check them out.
1. A Belle In Brooklyn
2. Brown Sista
3. Seriously?
4. Precious-Gem
5. Mystery
6. BAP
7. blkbutterfly

Now I'm told to list [if you can and or dare] at least ten honest things about yourself. And then, pass it on. So, here it is.

1. I'm feeling more and more confident in my professional abilities. I'm just getting to a place where I am claiming that I'm good at my job and am irreplacable. (Hopefully Time Inc. feels the same way while they're doing their lay-offs. Eeek!)

2. I'm getting to the point where I can't walk out the door looking 100% put together. I used to be able to walk out in sweatpants and a t-shirt, but I just can't do it anymore. All of my sweatpant-like clothes are reserved for inside the house. I do still love them though.

3. If I got laid off, I would love to write for a living, but I'm afraid my passion for writing will die if I am required to write. But I do want to try. I love it too much not to.

4. I think I'm becoming obsessed with Melinda Williams. Something about her is so radiating. Watch her speak in this video. She's intelligent and adorable!

5. I absolutely love where my relationship is with God. My heart is so full just thinking about his amazing power and mightiness and how even with all that, he cares about little ole' me.

6. I'm in love with my short hair cut. It's so easy to manage. And because it's so short, every day it looks done, even when it's dirty. I think that's a task that every brown sista works to accomplish in her hay day. But since it is dirty right now, I'm going to use some pomade and walk into work with a fauhawk tomorrow. =)

7. I can't wait to get married and turn my husband out. Shhh!!! Don't tell anybody!

8. I've been writing a lot of lyrics lately and some of the things that are coming out my head are surprising me. "Never thought I'd do that until you/Never before did I have the nerve/Never before did I have you." And "I'ma let you in on a secret/I already know how you like it" Huh? j.a.c.! Where is this coming from?! Lol.

9. I often have to repeat to myself "be loving j.a.c. be loving j.a.c. be loving j.a.c." when looking at certain people who look or act like a hot mess. God don't like ugly (and I wish someone would tell them that too!), so I do my best to correct myself.

10. My perceptive powers are sharp as a sword. I can pick up on people's attitudes and moods even if they're only slight. Even from all the way across the country. If something's different, I feel it in my bones. My radar is on point.

and here's an extra one i wanted to add just because

11. I want to work on glowing instead of being so serious all the time. (Who I appear to be through my writing is not really who I am in real life. I'm kinda stoic, sadly enough.) You know how when people are in love, they glow? Well I want that glow without the assistance of a man. I want to be so warm and fun that I radiate when I walk into a room. For instance, when you look at Angelina Joile, you feel her sexiness and incredible feline energy. Well, when people look at me, I would like for them to actually feel my joy and as a result, be happy. I want to be able to touch people without physically touching them. (Not that people have cooties or anything. I'm just saying.) But of course, this is something that's going to have to come from within. Well since I'm extremely happy with my life right now, I don't see why it can't be so. Maybe it already is. Now that I think about it, I do feel like I'm walking on clouds 80% of the time. (Warm, cheesy smile.)

Holler!

Awwww chicka! Your #5 and bonus #11 are exactly the reasons I nominated you. God is amazing huh? Even when we're not even close to measuring up, He remains faithful and full of love and grace!! I’ve also had to work on loosening up in the last few years. I think I catch people who've known me for years by surprise these days. It's all a process though, but you certainly radiate warmth in your blog and I think it's a true reflection of you because there's no reason to hide. You seem like a beautiful multi-faceted woman.

awww. you can do a fauxhawk. I'm jealous girl. Look at you!! lol. cool list.

I loved this list! #7?? Girl, you too??? LOL!! I also love your #3. I don't do it nearly as much as I would like to, but I vow to make more time to write. What you don't know is that you do exude a certain vibe. But for me, it was more like I was afraid to tell you something I did that wasn't right, because I was afraid of disappointing you!!

@ precious - aww! thank you chica! that was probably the sweetest comment i've ever received. i'm beaming!

@ miss alisa - see! that's why i gotta loosen up! my reputation growing up was built around being mama jen and while i prefer that over the alternative (being a loose hot mama who didn't know right from wrong), i want to be able to be relatable to people in all walks of life. but age has helped me to wise up AND open up. thanks for the comment alisa. i think my word for the day is "well-rounded". "well-rounded" is me. =)

Awwwww! Did you nominate little ol me!?? Awww :) Thanks baby!

Loving your honest list!
#1 Thumbs up! :)
#11 I call that a peaceful and positive spirit. That is one of my goals and something I will have to name on my honest list!

Thanks again and have a good one!

awww!!! I don't get a nomination?!!!! LOL.

But maybe it's just me... said...

Thank you for the nomination! I truly appreciate it.

I'm loving the honesty list!
#3- I've had the same thought...would I still have something to write about if all I had to do was write?
#7- True!
#11- Really? I've never even met you, but from your writing, I feel like we could sit down to lunch and talk for hours. I agree with P...you glow through your blog! And congrats on your extreme happiness!! :)

i can relate to number 2... i'm at the point where certain things that were ok to wear 2 or 3 years ago (namely t-shirts and flip flops) are unacceptable outside of my house. i suppose it's a part of maturing. but, i also i wonder if that will change once i hit middle age.

and, uhm, how about it's been a minute since i came by your blog so i didn't even know i was nominated! i'll get to this after my post-Maxwell post. :-)
