Happy Sunday everyone! I have to make this fast, because I think if Shawn finds out I’m blogging, he’s going to be pissed. For the past 2 days he keeps saying over and over “We have so much to do. We just don’t have enough time. We need more time.” Whatever dude. I have no idea what he’s talking about.
Here is this week’s edition of “Getting to Know You.” If you want to play along click over to Mann Land 5, and link up! This week’s questions were submitted by Ian from The Daily Dose of Reality. You should definitely head over and check him out, but don’t be afraid of his picture or buttons, they’re not for real.
1. Why did you start blogging?
Honestly, I had stalked blogs for a long time, but when my cousin Hillary started blogging, then I had to. We’ve spent our whole lives copying each other, it’s just how we roll.
2. Who’s the one blog friend you would want to meet most “in real life?”
Wow, I can think of several! To start with, I want to meet Jen from “The Tale of Two Coins.” Jen has an amazing story, and she is such a strong and inspirational woman. She actually lives in Michigan, so we are planning on meeting, hopefully sometime soon! I would honestly love to meet all of my bloggy friends, but I’m going to pick just one more, and that’s "Semi-Slacker Mom." She always has crazy shenanigans going on with her kids, and if she weren’t blond, I would swear we were sisters separated at birth!
3. Why are you always concerned with losing that “extra 10 pounds” when chances are your husband tells you that you look just fine the way you are?
Well, because my husband’s opinion doesn’t count. Just kidding. Well, kind of. Honestly, I’m not trying to lose weight, but when I was it was mainly because I didn’t like the way it made me feel, inside and out. When I could feel my ass moving when I walked or my belly rolling over my jeans when I sat down I found it disgusting. I also feel like being active and healthy sets a better example for my daughter’s.
4. What’s the one thing you wish guys could understand about you?
Hmm… Well, I wish my husband in particular, could understand OCD. I know he gets really frustrated with me about some of the things I do, but seriously, there’s nothing I can do about it!
5. Tattoos. How many do you have and how many are visible when you wear your “everyday” clothes?
I have 2. One is a butterfly on my right hip area. It was only about the size of a quarter to begin with, but after 2 kids and too much tanning, it is basically gone. The other one is on the inside of my right foot. It’s the Chinese symbol for “Mother.” I love this tattoo, and you can definitely see it if I’m wearing shorts/skirt/capris.
6. What was the best year of your life and why?
I had to think about this one. I would have to say the year I turned 21. Obviously I turned 21 (Hello, Margaritas!), I graduated from college, that summer I met Shawn, and that Christmas I got engaged.
7. Name three things you would do if you were a man for one day.
I would play with myself (not whack off, but just walk around grabbing and adjusting all day). I would play xBox 360 for several hours while wearing a headset and yelling at my nerd herd on xBox live. And, I don’t have a third one.
8. What’s your alcoholic drink of choice that usually raises a few eyebrows?
Probably a Long Island Iced Tea, but to me this isn’t even an eyebrow raiser. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve ordered one and had the bartender say “Whoa, hardcore.” A co-worker of mine also always gives me a hard time for ordering them, what’s the big deal?!
I hope you had a great Sunday! Here are a few pictures from mine:
My Mom made this bunny cake for the kids, it was so adorable! It may have been her greatest creation ever, sorta like my rainbow cupcakes!
Alex shooting hoops with Shawn on quite possibly the world’s oldest basketball hoop. Alex was actually shooting hoops with Grandpa, but Uncle Shawn had to be called in to lift Alex up for a slam dunk!
Last, but not least, baby Ethan! He had on a U of M hat my parent’s brought to the hospital when he was born, it was so cute! My sister thinks baby Ethan is the “prettiest” baby she’s ever seen. I’d have to agree, his eyes and eyelashes are absolutely unbelievable!
