BYOC- Bring Your Own Crazy

It's FRIDAY so that means it's BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy!  We answer a couple of questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break!  Copy and paste and answer in your own blogs if you'd like!!  ENJOY!!

1.  What’s your favorite room in your house?
Ummm, I'd have to say my living room. Our first furniture buy was our living room couch and chase lounge.  It is that microfiber swede stuff and quite possibly the comfiest thing EVAH! Plus I can watch TV, spy on our crazy neighbor out the window, and I'm only a few feet from the fridge (beer refills people). What more do you need!

2.  Picture question (or describe if you don't have a camera).  Show us a pic of your current favorite earrings!
OK I don't wear earrings all that often. I don't have any on now.  I can never to remember to put them on.  I barely remember to put my wedding ring on.  It used to be better when I had my jewelry box sitting on the dresser, all out in the open, so I noticed that I actually had jewelry to wear. But then we got a TV for the bedroom. And my box got kicked to the curb to make room for the TV. Really, its on the second to the bottom shelf in my closet where I have to become a Cirque de Soleil crazy painted acrobatic chick to retrieve anything out of it. (Ryan: Project #341: I want my jewelry box back on the dresser, find something to do with the TV.)

But out of all my earrings, right now my favs are these little silver dangly ones that look like a little Greek pillars but the width of a toothpick hanging from my ear.  They're fab.

3.  What’s your dress code at work? If you stay at home and went back to work outside the home, what dress code would you prefer?
First, for the entire company: we can't wear sleeveless shirts, open toed shoes (WTH! I can't believe I even took this job knowing that), and of course no ripped up crap.  That being said, each department in my company is different. My department you can pretty much wear whatever you want. I usually wear KSU t-shirts and jeans with my slip-on Cabela's shoes. Very drab. Some days I'll get all fancy and wear a fitted T with my Bling Jeans.  But last time I did that, the printer puked on me and ruined it. So I've been boycotting nice clothes since. (Basically I'm lazy and don't care what I look like at work because the only people that see me are my 3 little employees in my department.)

4.  Summarize your week in real life and in blog land.   
Blogland: (I can't get the bold to turn off, so you'll just have to deal with bold type. stupid blogger) Anyway, I've 'met' a lot of new peeps this week. I got like 16 new followers since last week and I'm so excited and just so....pee in my pants giddy!  And because of that I'm now following a ton of new people and just love it.  I've got a few challenges still going on that I've talked a little about: one being the Minute Challenge, most minutes exercised in June wins (against my bestie/coolest chick Draz). don't know what I'll get when I win (ha, get that little slip in) but I'm still excited.  Also trying to run/walk 25 miles each week. So far this week I've got 12 miles. I don't think I'll make the 25, but I'll be close. 

Real life: I signed up for a 5K. I'll say it again...holy crap.  But I'm excited. I ran a practice run on Wed and made it in 34 min. YEAH!  I've been eating donuts.  What the hell is wrong with me.  I've been STARVING all the time and tired as hell. I think it's a hormone thing, but still. It's so frustrating to be hungry when you know you don't need to eat.  And I could fall asleep at my desk. Right. This. Minute. WHY?!?! Stupid women things. Next week will be better.

Oh, and I get to eat at my all time favorite restaurant this weekend, Hibachi Hut (Tessie-it's that Cajun food place that's no where near the 'South'. It's so good though!! Almost as good as New Orleans Cajun. Almost.) I'll totally take pics. Ryan will kill me. (Sometimes, well, more than just sometimes, I think he's embarrassed to be seen in public with me. I have no idea why. Whipping your camera out in public to take pictures of food stuffs is normal right?) 

This weekend we take yet another road trip to see my mom and brother.  So, I was thinking, my mom only lives 2 miles from a casino.....why not run to the casino, drop money that I don't have into a few slot machines (praying the whole time I'll win it big on the penny machines and can buy at least the heel of one new shoe), maybe have a bloody mary, and run back to my moms.  Crazy? Ya, probably. 

Have a great weekend ya'll!!!


  1. I love that you have to become a cirque painted acrobat to get to your jewelry box. Well, I don't love it for you, but I'm totally picturing you all painted up and fabulous hanging from pink drapery.

  2. You kill me! I definitely want to see some pics of your Kansas Cajun Food! I take pictures of my food all the time, I thought everyone did!

  3. Everyone should take pictures of their food. People who don't are not normal. We are.

    BTW...why can't I find your dang photography website. I know I visited before. I want to cry.

  4. I just never remember to take my camera to town with me and my camera phone is not worth using, it sucks so bad. They might think you are a food critic or something! Just checked out your photo site! Wow you take a great picture.

  5. I take pictures when I'm in restaurants all the damn time - I just assumed everyone else did too...

    I just took a picture of the white zinfandel over ice that my MIL ordered on Friday so I could post it on FB. I'm pretty sure that's why God invented cameras.

  6. no open toed shoes? Well that sucks! Hope you won big at the casino!!


I love hearing from y'all, so leave a comment!
