BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy!

Yup, it’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy!!!!!
We answer a few questions in an effort to get to know each other better and
to give our blogging brains a break.  Copy to your own blog and enjoy!

1. I’m going to pick a person in your life – not knowing if you have a good or bad, existing or non-existent relationship with them – and your mission is to pick 5 words or traits or thoughts to describe them.

Your paternal grandmother.

Amazing Gardener
Silver & Turquoise jewelry everywhere.

2. What’s your all time favorite color to paint your nails? And your toes?

Purple. Then Hot Pink is my second. But I've been wanting to branch out with neons and blues and greens too.

3. Do you get along with your parents well?

Yes, my mom and I have such a great relationship. Wasn't always that way. I distinctly remember having ear piercing screaming matches at least twice a week when I was going through my rebellious teens. We'd stomp off (literally. we stomp our feet and put our hands on our hips like 3 year olds in a 'I can't have candy' induced tantrum), slam doors (like completely mature people) and not talk to each other for hours.  Then, I'd wise up and apologize. And the world would continue to revolve like normal.

And my dad taught me everything I know about driving stick, shooting a gun, building a deck, house, or whatever, roofing a house,  drinking beer, and how to love spicy food!  (Can you tell I was first born and he maybe wanted a boy first? lol.)

4. Speaking of rainbows – rank the rainbow colors in the order you prefer.

Purple (I know....big surprise.)
Pink (um yes – in my world – this color is in the rainbow)

5. Repeat question. How was your week in real life and in blog land this week?

Okay, blogland I haven't been doing a whole lot of posting. I mean, I did the picture post of the most adorable little nephew EVER. Then I did my disaster recap (+ new buys & canning lesson). But that was about it.

Which leads me to Real Life: I've been freaking swamped with work.  First, BOTH devil printers broke down and I spend Monday thru Wed. trying to get them working.  I did, btw, because I am the devil printer wonder mechanic and make miracles happen.  Then I have my Bestie's bachelorette party this weekend, which required shopping. AND I had to finish those beautiful pictures of Kyron so I can drop them off to my bro and SIL.  I did run and do twice this week. Whoopty-do.  I also drank copious amounts of beer, ate nachos and didn't have the 'Power' to say no to cheesecake this morning for breakfast.  I am such a dumbass.  But, I'm blaming TOM. He's a psycho bastard. I do plan on running 80% humidity....I know, not smart, but I need to get it done.  And doing a new workout too.  And not drinking beer. Right.

I can't wait for Saturday tho! Favorite bestie, favorite restaurant, tons of drinks, going out to my old college bars and seeing all the 12 year old looking skinny Barbie bitches which makes me what to stab a person with a stirring straw and have a great time!  (Plus I'll get to wear that new dress and take pictures so your wonderous eyeballs can feast on how I can actually dress myself, accordingly, at least once a year.)

The End.


  1. Wyatt looks nice with pink nails too!

  2. OMG! Jordan I completely forgot about that! Good call.

    Ok everyone, forgot to tell you that while on vacay in July, I painted Wyatt's nails hot pink (while the boys were at the liquor store). I tried to wait for them to notice on their own, but you know how guys are, so I just told them. Ryan was NOT a happy camper. (But Wyatt looked very pretty.)

  3. I cannot wait to see pics of you in that amazing dress!

  4. hiya!! I am new to you!! I swear I thought I already was following you...but I am now. We have a few followers in commen!

  5. Sounds fun! Have a good time and stay away from the straws! :)

  6. "and seeing all the 12 year old looking skinny Barbie bitches which makes me what to stab a person with a stirring straw"

    LOL! I know these girls you speak of and have had the same thoughts many times! :)

    Have a great time!

  7. Awww, I'm so glad your making my brother feel at home, blaming him for things already. At least, I'm guessing that's the Tom you were talking about. :D

  8. Woo! Pics of the pretty new dress. Cannot wait. So glad you have such an amazing relationship with your mom now. I'm envious.

    Also - can you not love the FAB that is Orange? Last? Really??

    Oh and pics of Wyatt's pink toes if you have. Gosh Cat...Lab stalker much?? Sheesh.


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