11 Random Things about Me:

  1. My dog {Ozzie – the shiba inu} is a runner. He is highly intelligent, but once he knows he has an ounce of freedom from say, slipping out of his collar, he is outta here. I may be saying this because the little shit took off today and hasn’t returned home yet. GRR.
  2. I don’t drive through car washes. That’s what husbands are for, right? I don’t mind doing the U-Wash though.
  3. I am not a fan of talking on the phone. I much prefer texting, emailing, or going for a good old-fashioned coffee date.
  4. When I was younger, I never wanted to be married or have kids. Now here I am, married for 12 years this month, with four kids, three cats, two dogs, and am in the process of getting licensed to be foster parents. What the heck? Who am I?
  5. I have had a mole on my collarbone. It was approximately the size of a pencil eraser. I was extremely self-conscious of that mole while growing up. I remember in 8th grade wearing a tank top with a band-aid over the mole, saying the cat had scratched me. I had it removed a few years ago. One quick slice and buh-bye. Now, I just have a small flesh-colored scar.
  6. I have these weird eyelashes that grow out of the inner corner of my eyes. I never really thought much about it, until one day when Jdogg made fun of me. Every once in awhile I will pluck them… usually, when I am plugging that one black hair that grows under my chin.
  7. I long to be organized. I’m not.
  8. I have an extra bone in the roof of my mouth. You just checked to see if you do, too, right?

9.  I hate watermelon, actually I think I hate all melons?

10.  I had light, light blonde hair until I was a freshman in high school and died my hair strawberry blonde. It turned olive green. My hair has never been the same since.

11.  I have a dream of being on Wheel of Fortune.

Questions I was tagged with:

  1. In the movie of your life, what actors play your family? Geez, Thea. This is a hard one. I would choose Rachel McAdams for myself and Ryan Reynolds for my husband, because, WHY NOT?! My children should play themselves and earn their keep.
  2. What one area of your life do you wish you could hire someone to do for you? COOKING! My husband does a great job on his days off, but what about those other two weeks?
  3. If I’m peeking through your window between the hours of 4pm to 6pm, what do I see? A mess.
  4. What television show do you put the kids to bed early for? None, since I have a DVR. BUT, I do love True Blood, Boardwalk Empire, and Hell on Wheels. Those must be watched with no kids around.
  5. When’s the last time you wrote a card to someone when it wasn’t their birthday? I personally love sending my friends cards, but I don’t do it nearly enough.
  6. What’s the deal with time zones? Really. What IS the deal? I live in Central time, however think Mountain time feels the most natural for me. Not to mention, the next time zone over is only like 50 miles away. So everytime we go visit family in Dickinson, we gain an hour and lose one coming back.
  7. Do you prefer active vacations are lazy vacations? I prefer both. Any vacation is a good vacation. Sometimes, adventure is good, and sometimes, laying at the beach is what is needed!
  8. What one song represents your life right now? Sexy and I know it. Okay. Kidding. How about. Crap. I just don’t know.
  9. Do you do laundry every day or once a week? I do laundry several times a week. And then it sits in baskets, unfolded for another week.
  10. Someone gives you $5000, no strings attached. What do you do with the money? I’m thinking I would probably get the hell out of here for a bit! Take the family somewhere awesome. Norway? Iceland? Hawaii?
  11. Are you happy? Sure am!

My Questions for you:

  1. Do you lie about your weight on your driver’s license?
  2. What is your favorite quote/saying?
  3. Where is the best place you’ve ever traveled?
  4. Do you put your dirty dishes in the dishwasher as they become dirty, or do you pile them in the sink a mile high?
  5. Name your all-time favorite blog.
  6. Are you more like your mother or your father?
  7. What time period in your life has been your favorite so far?
  8. Share one of your long-term goals.
  9. And a short-term goal.
  10. Can you shoot a gun?
  11. Do you consider yourself judgmental?
