Getting to know you, or Weekend update, or Push your kids down.

I’m participating in “Getting to know you” Sunday again at Mann Land 5. If you’re not playing along, you should! So, click on over there people! If you make it to the end of this post you’ll also get to see some pictures from our trip to the museum today. I know, I know, you’re on the edge of your seat!

Ok, on with the questions:

1. What is your favorite Easter candy?

First of all, I have said it before and I’ll say it again…I think of all the holidays, Easter has the best candy! If I have to pick just one favorite, then it’s definitely:


I have single handedly eaten 3 whole bags of these so far this year!

2. Who do you think is cleaner…men or women?

I have to say women. Does my husband clean more than me, yes. But, no matter what, he’s still not cleaner.

3. Which do you prefer…wordy blog posts or ones with pictures?

If you’re a faithful follower of mine, then I bet you can guess the answer to this one! Definitely pictures. I don’t mind wordy posts, but if you don’t write in paragraphs or use punctuation, then you’ve probably lost me after the first 10 lines.

4. Were you popular in High School?

This is a hard one, and I’m inclined to say no. But, I think I probably fell right in the middle as far as popularity goes. I was a cheerleader, so people did know me, but I wasn’t exactly “popular.”


Is it easy to tell which one is me?

(Btw, this picture is for someone who I found out is “stalking” my blog, I wonder if she’ll come out of the closet if I put her picture up?)

5. What is your bra size?

34DD. Did I just say that out loud?

6. How many states have you lived in?

Two: Michigan and Florida.

7. What’s one blog you read every day?

Well, not everyone posts everyday, so this is hard. Here are 2 that post almost everyday, which I always read: Lavender, Leopard & Lace and Just another day in (our Midwest) paradise.

8. Peanut Butter or Nutella?

Well, I’ve never in my life had Nutella, so I have to say peanut butter.

Did anyone stick around long enough for the pictures? We went to the public museum today, because the girls were dying to see the “Big Big Bugs” exhibit. The girls actually got in free because they are WGVU clubhouse members. I have no idea what that means, but my parent’s paid for it, so Thanks Mom & Dad!









I put the last picture up because one of those little girls is going to “kindergarten round-up” this week. Sigh. I wish I would have listened to one of the doctors I used to work with who told me when my kids started walking, I should push them down.

Easter candy should be available all year long, then maybe I wouldn't be so inclined to eat my weight in it during the one month you can get it.

Shell said...

I want to know if this brings out your stalker! LOL

I love the reece's eggs. Yum. Peanut butter...which would answer the nutella question, too. Not that I've ever had nutella...

Looks like you had fun this weekend!

Kara@Pickerill Prattle said...

I love mini eggs too! Those yummy candies are what I posted as my fave for Getting to Know You as well!

Looks like a great day at the museum! I am such a dork but doing things like that is one of things I am most looking forward to about having a family!

d.a.r. said...

Aww I feel special that you read my bloggy daily!

Your girls are so cute!!

Kelsey Claire @Lavender, Leopard, and Lace said...

DD! Oh my that is awesome! You pull them off so well with your skinny minny waste! You look so cute with the girls. You look like professional Barbie or something (or whatever the brunette "barbies" name is)! Happy Sunday bloggy friend!

Leah said...

Tami, you made me green with envy...DD. Hahaha!

And I agree with you about the post... I get easily bored when the post is too long but I never get bored with your posts. Maybe because you perfected your style of writing... every read is so interesting.

Have a great day! xoxo

PS... Cheerleaders are popular. :-)

Erin said...

These pics are too cute! and you are TEENY, girl! omg!

I am a Jew, but I do love me some Easter candy. Sue me. I love those marshmellow filled egg-shaped things covered in chocolate. I think they have an almond in the middle? I want to say they're called "Heavenly Hash" eggs or something?

tell us more about the "stalker!"

Hillary said...

Love the pics, but cannot hardly believe you've never tried Nutella?!?! I must admit, it is one of the finer things in life. Pick some up, and start with just dipping pretzels. After that the possibilities are endless.

Christine said...

The girls look like they had so much fun at the museum! And I'll try to remember to push my future kids down! haha so funny

Claire said...

Can I just say I have laughed hysterically after reading your blog! I'm glad I found you! Thanks for the laugh:)

Heidi said...

Ahhh highschool. Hated it! That's a great pic of you girls, though. That's how I still picture all of you. Do you find yourself doing the same? Like when you find classmates on FB, you're surprised by how much they've though they should still look like they did 14 years ago? Ha!
P.S. Out the stalker 'cause I'm curious!

Cara Smith said...

Kindergarden is not so's when they start telling you you have wrinkles that you wish you had pushed them down.

Danielle said...

Love those mini-Cadbury eggs, never had Nutella, I have one starting Kindergarten (and one starting high school), and I wish I could still fill a C that too much to ask after nursing 5 babies...oh well at least my big butt makes up for that. LOL

Marjorie said...

Mini Eggs are my favorite candy EVER! I read somewhere that McDonald's in the UK has a Mini Egg blizzard during Easter season. I'm soooo jealous!

Anonymous said...

It's true I stalk your blog! I cannot believe your mom outed me:)
Anywho; I love reading about your life and your skinny, funny self! Funny you look so perfect in our picture! I feel as though I am little girl in it:) And WOW 14 years REALLY ~I have to keep telling myself 'self, you're only as old as you feel!'
I think its time for a reunion ~ maybe with out the uniforms though!!
~your stalker

Sara said...

That cheerleading picture is great! Love it! I knew right away which one was you! Aren't Cadbury eggs the absolute best? And you really really must try Nutella. It's SO amazing!

Taylor-Made Wife said...

I totally picked you out of that picture imeadiately! All this talk of Easter candy makes my crave some sweets!

Yankee Girl said...

I LOVE Easter candy! I am a HUGE peep fan.

And I am stacked too!

Amy said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE pictures! Must do a better job of that on my own blog!!

ty said...

I wanna know about the stalker hahahaaa. And I'm totally doing this now. I'm bored out of my skull in class and still have 30 minutes left.

And the Mini-Eggs ... hell yes.

Meghan said...

Your family is so adorable!!!

Jennifer said...

Read your IUD post, and laughed until my side hurt.

Katie's Journey said...

Be sure to swing by my blog... there is something there for you!

Corrie and Phil said...

You lived in Florida?! Where? I don't know that I'll ever go back to Michigan after living in The Sunshine State.

Being a FHS alumni myself, I'm also curious about the stalker. Ha! :)
