5QF 12-7-12

Happy Friday Yall! It's Five Question Friday and that means you need to head over to Mama M's and join in the fun!

1. How many times have you moved and do you have any tips?

Well if you don't count the 17,124 apartments I lived in during college, I'm going to say 2. 1 when we bought our first house, and 1 when we moved to this house.  Tips? No, I suck at packing boxes, and I always have so many things at the very end that don't go in a box, or can't fit in a box, so I end up just shoving them in my car in the front seat. Don't plan on moving again anytime soon, unless I win the Powerball, then I will hire not just a moving company to move our stuff, but a moving company who comes and packs it all up as well!

2. Do you have a budget for the holidays, or just keep sliding the credit card and have a heart attack in Jan?
I don't really have a specific budget, but I only use debit cards, no credit. That way come Dec 23rd, all of our presents are paid for, and I don't have anything to worry about later. I started that about 2 years ago, and it was the best feeling ever, knowing that come January, I wasn't going to get this huge bill to pay for everything.  It made me be more aware of what I was spending, and not just grab everything I wanted. On the flip side, it also makes me go and buy things earlier, so I don't feel that rush right before Christmas. It's definitely a better situation that I used to do.
3. What is the one medical thing you avoid like the plague?

I don't really have anything that I avoid. Shots don't bother me. Procedures are usually no big deal. I've had surgeries before. I just go and do what I'm supposed to do, and get things checked out when I should.

4 What your least favorite Christmas song?
I HATE that Christmas Shoes song, Hippopotamus song, and anything by the Beach Boys. Christmas songs sung by the Beach Boys are just horrible. Oh, and Elvis. I don't like Blue Christmas. Our Christmas lights dance to music and Blue Christmas is one of them, and it makes my skin crawl each time I hear it.
5. This Christmas are you spending more, less or about the same? Why?
See question 2. Probably a little more this time, only because Love Bug is asking for a couple of more expensive items, but not much. We just will not get as many of the cheaper things.

Happy Friday yall! Tomorrow we are going to the local children's hospital for their annual Christmas celebration. It is music, lighting of the Christmas tree, fireworks, and Santa, for all the staff and their kids, but especially for those kids who will be in the hospital for Christmas. It's really neat as the kids who are able, come out and are able to press a button, that shoots off their own firework. The kids eyes light up, like nothing I have ever seen.  Our good friends own the firework company, so we come and sit "backstage" and watch. It really is a neat evening for the kids. Makes you really appreciate your healthy kids, when you see the kids in wheelchairs, wagons, and some even in beds, coming outside to shoot off their own firework. Give your babies an extra hug!! And thank God they are healthy!

11/9/2012 Birth #5qf

Because one of our twitter friends had a baby this week, and we were all so excited about it, I suggested to Mama M that we have an all birth Five Question afriday. Well I guess she really liked all my questions, or nobody else remembered, so all five of these are mine, except the last one. So go link up, and enjoy the fun, and go read about others birth stories!!

1. If you had a c section do you wish you would have had a vaginal birth? Or vice versa?

I had a vaginal birth with both kids. And I am actually very glad that I didn't have to have a c section with either one. I know the recovery is a lot harder and other complications can occur. 

2. I
f vaginal did you go drug free?
Drug free? What the hell is that? I got drugs the minute my OB said I could have them!!! I have a really high tolerance for pain, but to me, dealing with pain when this is supposed to be the best time of your life, wasn't worth it. I wanted to be able to enjoy my labor as much as possible, all the way to the end. 

3. Did you have any complications?

I didn't really have any serious complications per se, but their were issues with each birth.  With Love Bug, her head wasn't going the rigth way, so pushing wasn't doing any good. She was looking off to the side, and not up, like she was supposed to. So after an hour and a half of pushing, my OB came in and turned her head. That was actually more painful than the actual delivery. But, as soon as she did that, 2 contractions later she was out!
With Baby Bug, he did have a more significant issue. Thorough my labor, my nurse, Skipper, who was fabulous, was aware that his heart rate wasn't staying up. She had me switch sides, she adjusted the monitor, she put the head monitor on him, but his heart rate wasn't staying up. She gave me some oxygen to try and get him some more oxygen. When I was at a 10, my OB comes in, and because of the beauty of iPhone and a really cool app, she was able to monitor me and him throughout so she knew what his heart rate was doing the entire time. Anyway, she walked, in, told me and my husband, that while she knew that he wanted to cut the cord, she was going to do it because it was wrapped around his neck twice. She then told us that it "was no big deal, she cut cords every day"!!! Needless to say, we were very appreciative. :)  Anyway, Baby Bug came out, grey, not breathing, and not really moving. A quick look at me and he was off to the nicu team who was waiting for him. About 30 seconds later, I hear a beautiful scream! And his 5 minute apgar was a 9!!!!

4. Who was in the delivery room with you?

Husband and sister, both times! She held my legs the first time, and was the official photographer. Second time, just photographer.

5. Did you document your labor and delivery? (Photos, videos, etc.)

Just pictures. We had a video set up the first time, on the tri pod and everything, but forgot to hit record!

6. Pick the birth story of one of your children and tell us ALLLLLLLL about it!

Since I have already basically given you Baby Bugs, I will give you Love Bugs. 
Love Bug was my first pregnancy and she is the one who made me a mom. I had no issues during my pregnancy until my 3rd trimester. Throught my entire third trimester, my blood pressure had continuously gone up, and was gradually put on different "levels" of bedrest,  to the point I was put on 100% bed rest. At 37 weeks 3 days, I was induced. 5am I had to arrive at the hospital because I was a medical induction. At 6:30 I got some pitocin. At 8 I got my water broken, and about 9:00 I got my epidural.

Because of my blood pressure, my nurse never left my side. Ever, except what was an obvious potty break. She was AMAZING. Her name was Skipper (yes, the very same Skipper you read about earlier. But what you may not realize, is that Baby Bug is my 2nd child. I was induced with him as well, and she just happened to be working that day, so I requested her to be my nurse again!!!)
We were trucking along, epidural working great, my parents coming in and out just to say hi. Husband's parents had driven in from Phoenix the day before to be there for the birth of their first grandchild.

By 2:00 I was at a 10 and ready to push. But of course, not before we turned on Happy Days. I'm not for sure how that all got going. I think it was a joke between my sister and my husband, because if you remember, on Friends, when Phoebe was delivering the triplets, her dr wanted Happy Days on. I think it was just a coincidence that it happened to be on tv. Obviously I wasn't paying attention much.  

After we got her head straight, my epidural wore off at that exact moment. My dr had another patient down the hall, so she went to check on her, while I got a booster of more drugs! When she came back, and 2 pushes later, she came out. She was gorgeous, perfect, and all mine!!! Well, I guess she was my husbands too, but you know!! While they were cleaning her off, she was crying, and my husband went over and started talking to her, and she calmed down and stopped crying. My sister took the most amazing shots of the two of them.

Makes me want to have another, just for that moment of birth! LOVE!

5QF 10-12-12

It's Friday and we have family pictures this weekend. Our first in 3 years! The weather is supposed to be great and fall like! :) Yea!! :)

So go and join Mama M's Five Question Friday fun!

1. Did you have any homecoming traditions?
It's so odd to me that people in Canada don't even know what Homecoming is. But, because it is our town's Homecoming this weekend, it brought back all kinds of high school memories.
First Friday is the day you get to wear your mum to school, and Friday night the girls take the guy to dinner and the game, and then Saturday, the guy takes the girl to dinner and the Homecoming dance.

Now, what is a mum you ask? Well, let me just show you:
(courtesy Google Images).

So mums are what the girls are given the night before, or the morning of the Homecoming game. They have mini cow bells on them, so they are crazy annoying, but so much fun. Our names, and usually our school and the year, and then all kinds of tassels, and little crafty things. If your date is someone you are dating (or the guy is hoping you will want to) it might even include a Kiss Goodnight Pull. What that is, is a little ribbon thing, and it is all bunched up. Then when you kiss goodnight, the guy is supposed to pull it while he is kissing you. When the ribbon is all stretched out, you stop kissing.
There are single, double and triple mums. Then the guys get Garters. They are mini versions that go on their arms. I really think all guys hate them! :)

2. Do you ask your spouse before spending money?

Not usually. Unless it is a big ticket item. I know how much money we have in the bank, and as long as it stays full (our definition of full) I am good. Big ticket items (birthday, Christmas presents, etc) we always talk about first.

3. If you could be famous for something what would it be?
Something worth while. A cure for a disease, or leaving a ton of money to a foundation, something meaningful for sure. Definitely not the Lindsay Lohan/Kim K. type of famous.

4. Have you ever seriously thought you were going crazy?No, thankfully I haven't. Usually I am pretty even-keeled person. I stress but just for a little while. Most of the time I stay pretty ok.

5. How do you eat your steak? Burger? (as in, well done, medium, still moo-ing...)
Burger? Done. No pink at all.
Steak, I think a thick line of pink. But no bleeding, no mooing. That is NASTY!!!

Happy Friday yall! Happy Homecoming to us! :)

Ohigosh since my last blog post so many things have happened!
Baby Bug turned 3 and had a great party at the fire station.  Love Bug turned 7 and we had a great party at the bowling alley! And finally, one week at DisneyWorld! Phew! Laundry I think is caught up, and school work is caught up! And now I get to do a Five Question Friday Post! 

1. What album/cd/download are you embarrassed to admit you have?

Well, last week, my husband asked me if I knew any Air Supply songs. So I started rattling them off. And when I say rattling them off, I mean singing them. And the reason he asked me is because I guess they are on tour, and he wanted to know what songs they sang, because the billboard of them showed these two rockers. I digress.
Anyway, so then I start thinking about their songs, and then well, I had to download their greatest hits album. And I might have listened to it every night this week. In fact, I might be listening to it as I type this.

I'm all out of love, I'm so lost without you........
2. What's the one thing your spouse does better than you?

Cook. He is much more creative when it comes to cooking. He is willing to try more things. I get in a serious rut and then make the same things over and over again. 

3. When do you start buying Halloween Candy?

October 30th. Hopefully there is something still good left. You would think I would learn one year.

Family closets - Yay or nay?

No way! I need everybody to have their own space! Luckily my husband and I both have our own closets as well!

5. Which home/cleaning chore do you hate the most? Why?
Scrubbing the toilets. Need I explain why?

Anyway have a great weekend! Cold front comes tonight!!

9-14-2012 5QF

It's the beginning of birthday week here in our house. Baby Bug's party is tomorrow, his bday is Sunday. And Love Bugs bday is next Saturday, and her party is on Sunday. Its a long 8 days around here! Well, lets get started with Mama M's Five Question Friday shall we?

1. How long did it take for you to find your wedding dress? (Wedding dress pics anyone?) Well J and I got engaged on Christmas Eve 2001. I was completely surprised, even though we had been dating for only 9 years. Yes, YEARS! But at this point, we had bought a house together, got a dog, and knew we were going to get married, just didn't know when.

Little did I know, he had this planned for a long time. My parents were in on it, he had gone and asked them and everything. His parents were in town, and his dad knew, but not his mom. She can't keep a secret! :)

Anyway, so he proposed, I of course said yes, and then for some reason, we decided it had to be a date related to 13. So that leaves the 13th or the 26th. And I wanted a spring wedding. Well, 15 months later, we found a Saturday, in the Spring, on the 26th!

We booked the church and the reception site first, and then waited a while before we did much else. Then about that summer, my mom and sister and I booked a couple of appointments to see some wedding dresses. We went to a store in Fort Worth, and found nothing. The next weekend we had 3 appointments at 3 different locations in Dallas. The first was The Bridal Portfolio. I tried on probably 6 different dresses, and as soon as I put mine on, it literally, took my breath away. It was perfect. I tried on about 3 more just to make sure, but knew that was THE DRESS. (see below). To the point that we even called the other stores and cancelled our other appointments.

I never thought that an off the shoulder dress with tulle would be my thing. EVER. To the point I even told the lady I didn't want to try it on. But she assured me it looked better on than on the hanger. Was so glad I listened!

So the answer (finally) to the question is I found my dress in the second store I went into. 

2. Someone in your general vicinity releases a NASTY smelling fart. Do you say anything or blow it off?
If it's someone in my house, usually I know because they will claim it before I actually smell it.
In public, never make a peep, or bat an eye, or anything. Just hope nobody thinks its me!
3. What is the scariest thing that happened to you or scared you recently?
I honestly can't think of anything.  Luckily it's been a long time since I have been truly scared!
4. Favorite brand and flavor of ice cream.
Surprisingly, I'm not much of an ice cream fan. Cookies? yup. Cake? Yup. Candy bar? Oh yea! But ice cream? Not so much. But if I had to choose it would be Blue Bell Mint Chocolate Chip! It is SO yummy. When I do eat it. Which is like 3 times a year.

5. Are you able to sleep well in hotels?
Once I get to sleep, yes. I travel a lot (relatively), so once I fall asleep, I stay asleep. Most of the time, I keep the tv on, and then wake up at some point in the middle of the night and turn it off, and go right back to sleep.

I am usually so tired if I'm in a hotel because I have either been traveling, or working, or catching up on sleep I didn't get at home, that I am out like a light! And sleep (besides turning off the tv) all night!

Have a great weekend!

Is it reallythe last Friday before school starts? I am sooooo incredibly bummed! I really never thought I would be, but I am going to miss this time I have had with my girl. But so it is. So now I count down till May, and wait till she is home all over again.

So on to this weeks Five Question Friday! Jump on over to Mama M's and join in! 

1. If you could have been (could be) any profession you wanted (brains and $$$ no problem) what would it be?

Without a doubt, a surgeon. I wanted to be a surgeon since high school, but I knew that I wasn't smart enough. Let me rephrase that. I would have really struggled. I don't think in the medical school itself classes, but the basics. Biology, chemistry. Those would have kicked my butt.
Everytme someone close to me has a medical situation. Or a show like NY Med, it really makes me wish I would have at least tried. My husband tells me I should go back and do it anyway, but I would be like almost 50 enforce I could actually start practicing.

Oh well, I will just always tell my kids don't ever Not Try because you don't think you can. At least try.
2. How often do you clean out your car?

Well, I try to do it weekly. If not, it gets so bad and seems to get 100x worse as each day goes by!
Do you wish there was such a thing as fashion police or are you deeply relieved?

Honestly, not for myself, but oh my goodnight, for some people yes, there really should be!
4. What's your go to food/drink/activity when stressed?

Chocolate mousse and dr pepper. Or Crown if it's really bad,
5. If you had twins, what would you name them?

Boy/Girl: Austin and Audrey
And I have no other names left. Glad I'm. It having anymore children!

5qf (Sunday) Aug 19, 2012

Ugh! I'm so far behind! I k ow its Sunday, but we have had such a great weekend, blogging just wasn't a priority. The weather has been AMAZING!!!! Highs in the 80s both days, so we spent all weekend outside just soaking it up. My girl and her friends played all day, had snow cones, danced to Carly Rae Jepson, and had a great (almost) end of summer time! One. Re week and it's school time :(. I didn't honk I would be one of those moms who would be sad when school started.  I thought I would be ready for school to start and all. But I'm not. I like the ease of summer (even though it is messing up my gym time!)

Anywho, let's get this started!

1. What's the one thing you buy every time you walk into the store?

Well, if it's th grocery store? Fruit, bread, milk. Every time. Even if we don't need it. Target? Usually clothes. For somebody. Me or my kids. My husband does his own shopping so I don't ever buy him stuff. 

2. If you had a day all to yourself how would you spend it?

. And mybe some shopping. But mainly just relaxing.
Sleeping, then lunch with friends, then probably a p. afternoon at the spa. Massage, facial, etc. 

3. Are you a speed limit driver? If not, over or under?

100% over!! I very rarely go the speed limit. The only exception is a school zone. I never, ever,ever speed in a school zone. Mostly I go under. 

4. What's your favorite dessert to make, homemade or from a mix??
I'm not really a dessert maker. I like them, but I am not very creative, so usually a box kinda girl is me. But I do love nestle toll house cookies, from scratch. But that's about it. 

5. Would you rather have a spider or a mouse scurry across your face (no copping out and saying "neither!!")?
Ugh! Well since I have never had that happen, I am goi g to go with mouse. They are faster, and usually will just run not bite.
A spider might bite you. At least in mt mind that's how it works. 

Ugh. Now that I am creeped out, I am going to sign off! Happy week y'all!

First and Foremost, Happy 44th Anniversary to my parents! Amazing, wonderful, inspiring!!

So Mama M decided to go on vacation, and all. Jees, how rude. But she did get the amazing and wonderful Kate to host this weeks Five Question Friday for her. So join in, its fun!!

1. What do you call them? Flip flops, thongs, sandals, etc.
Most of the time, I call them flippers. And if not flip flops. By best friend has always called them flippers and I can't remember when, but one day I noticed I did too!

Thongs are underwear, sandals are just shoes.

2. Are you a "My kid can do no wrong" kind of mom, or "Johnny hit me. Well what did you do first"

I think I am somewhere down the road. Baby Bug is a trouble maker. The sweetest trouble maker you will ever meet, but still a trouble maker. And most of the time, if he comes crying, its usually because Love Bug has done something to him. 99% of the time, what he did to her first.

Love Bug on the other hand is the opposite. She is a really good kid, and very rarely does anything wrong. Especially on purpose. She may do something on accident and not know it was wrong, but as far as hitting, biting, kicking, etc, usually she is on the taking end, not the giving end.

3. Would you confront a good friend who looks down on your husband/significant other?

Honestly, probably not. But what I would do is begin to separate myself from that friend. And usually I am a person who will confront somebody. I don't have a problem with that at all. But, if that person is looking down on my husband, they are in turn looking down on me. I don't expect everybody to like my husband, (shoot sometimes I don't even like him!! :) ) but, you are respectful of your friends, and their spouses. Fake it if you have to. We do that with friends who we like, but not their spouses. And that's ok.

4. What's your biggest pet peeve?
I think I have 2. Lying, and whining. Both just are unacceptable, and completely preventable. You choose to do both. So around me, don't do either!!

5. What's your favorite take out meal?
We have 2, Pizza and chinese.
Pretty much we get pizza every Thursday night.  And our favorite chinese food is located in town, so we dont' get that very often, but when we do, it is a treat!!

Alright, busy weekend ahead! Hope you all have a great one. Send your thoughts and prayers to those in Colorado. Awful, just awful!

5F 7-13-2012

Happy Friday! What a crazy week. After my BFF's son got injured, I took over care for her daughter (who is the same age as Love Bug), but it just meant I one more person to take care of. All good, love her to pieces, just a little unexpected. No worries though, that sweet boy is at home and recovering nicely. Going to be a long 4 weeks for him without his "feet leaving the ground". Drs orders.

Anywho, on to Mama M's Five Question Friday!

1. What's your view on men wearing sandals (yay or nay)? Nope. The only thing that is acceptable is flip flops. "Jesus" sandles? Hell no! Granoa looking sandles? Super hell no! Sandles with socks? Well that is just a hell to the freaking no!

2. What song do you love but are embarrassed to admit? Call Me Maybe. Shut up

3. What summer camp should they make for moms?  I think the same type they make for kids. Art camp, theater camp, cooking camps, sports camps. And most importantly spa camps. where we go and get pampered all week. Massages, body was, pedis, manis, facials, etc.

4. What is the most romantic song? (Not necessarily your favorite or your wedding song...) I was listening to my iPad last night and the Lionel Ritchie country compilation album was playing. While I had heard this one song a thousand times before in my life, for some reason, I realized that Lady, which was written by Lionel Ritchie and sung by Kenny Rogers, has tobe the sweetest, most heartfelt, loving song, I have ever heard.

5. Do you have an embarrassing pregnancy story? Sometimes I wish I did, but not I don't. No pee leakage, no boob leakage, no horrible pooping while pushing, even though I'm 100% sure I did. My pregnancies were very boring (until the end, but nothing embarrassing). Y'all know me, if I did, I would tell you!

Happy weekend. Taking it easy around here with a little swimming and that's about it. Was supposed to go out with my BFF, but I'm thinking she will wanna stay home and love on her boy, who is lucky all he ended up with is a concussion. And not a broken skull. Freak accidents, he wasn't even doing anything crazy, just hit a rock and flew over his handle bars. Hug your babies! Let em play, but keep em safe with helmets!!

5QF July 5,2012

TWO QUESTIONS?!?!?! TWO FREAKING QUESTIONS?!?!?!? That's right folks, Mama M picked not one, but 2 of my questions!! Score one (or 2) for me!

1. Is love at 1st sight possible?
You know, I used to think so. And I still think of something to that effect. But I don't think it is at first sight. I think maybe at first meeting. And maybe not necessarily love, but the fact that you know that that person will be someone important in your life, or will be a friend or more.

2. How did you choose your pet's name?
I honestly don't remember. We're we're just throwing around a bunch of names, and for whatever reason one of em stuck. We have dog, and she is 12 years old. Sweet, old girl. Not for sure how much longer she will be around.

3. What are you considering giving up (cable, home phone)?
Not really anything. We actually just added the movie channels to our satellite, only because they screwed up my bill, and gave us a whole bunch of channels for $5 a month for 6 months. After that, we will be dropping those movie channels.

4. How much do pay your babysitter?
$10 hour no matter if that is one kid or 2. We have 3 different babysitters that we use, and they range in age from 17-22 and we pay them all 3 the same, unless it is an overnight thing.

5. How "young" is old enough to babysit?
Well, I prefer mine to be at least 16. It helps for driving purposes. But I will allow them to be younger, if it is just my older one. She is pretty self sufficient and can take care of most of her own needs. We have a neighbor who has a 15 yo daughter, and I will allow her to babysit during the day, only if her parents are home as well.

Well, now y'all have a great weekend, it is Friday right? My days are all jacked up due to a holiday in the middle of the week!

Friday, June 29, 2012

5QF 6-29-12

It's Friday! And not just any Friday, Friday before a holiday, which is like extra special Friday!! And Mama M  picked one of my questions this week! Woo hoo!!

Let's get going!

1. What's your favorite childhood snack that you still eat as an adult?
Fudge Rounds, Swiss Cake Rolls, and Oatmeal Cream pies by Little Debbie. Do you have these? OMG, so incredibly good, and yet so bad for you at the same time!

2. What food will you not eat the low fat version of?
Lost of things. Most of the time, low fat is ofter worse for you as it has chemicals instead. I can't think of anything in particluar.

3. What's your favorite way to cool off during the summer?
With a cool beverage in a pool. Always relaxing and keeps me cool. But seeing as I don't have a pool, I don't get to do that very often.

4. What's your favorite summer read?
I don't have a certain Summer read, just a read in general. Yea, you guessed it. Fifty Shades. It's pretty much good anytime of the year. :)

5. What are you doing to stay cool in this awful heat?
Well, it isn't awful heat for us just yet. Its still normal summer heat. When it starts getting above 105, then it is awful. But either way, it is still hot. Mostly staying inside. Which drives my kids crazy, but lots of crafts, and popsicles make em happy!

Alrighty, go get your America on (unless you are Kate, and then you go get your Canada on I guess), and everybody have a great holiday!

Friday, June 8, 2012

5QF 6/8/12

How is possible that one week of summer is already gone! If the rest of the summer goes this quickly, I'm going to be getting ready for 1st grade soon! Plus, I was in Children's Place this week and they already have their fall line out? What is that about?

So because it is Friday, that means it is time for Five Question Friday over at Mama M's

1. Did you do anything special for your kids on the last day of school? Or did you parents do anything special for you?
This year Love Bug was in Kindergarten, so I wanted to do something, but not too big as to set a prescedent. So, they got out at 11:00 that day, and me and her best friend, (who happens to be my best friends daughter), went to lunch, and then to the yogurt store, and then the girls came back here to play. Fun for them. I don't remember my mom and dad doing anything special until college. Then on the last day of my last class of my college career, my mom, sister, best friend (yes same friend as above) all went and got drunk to celebrate. That was pretty memorable!

2. What's your favorite summer tradition with your children?
I don't know that we have one thing in particular that is our favorite. Eating Popsicles, playing in the water, shooting fireworks at 4th of July. We have lots of fun things that we do, but nothing that is a tradition.

3. What was your favorite thing to do during the summer as a kid?
Going to Camp Ozark each year for 8 years straight. Ozark is a Chrisitian sports adventure camp in Arkansas and I went every year for 2 weeks. I made so many friends, had so much fun. Learned so much about myself, and who I am, who I wanted to be. It was a great experience, and I know my kids will be going as well.

4. How old were you when you were married? Were you a Bridezilla?
I feel like such an old bride, and I know that I'm wasn't. I was 28. And I guess the reason I felt so old is that we started dating 9 years before we got married. I guess he wasn't for sure, I don't know what took him so long. We bought a house 2 years before we got married which is weird. I don't think I was a bridezilla until about 2 weeks before. And then I got a little crazy bitch! :)

5. What is your favorite girl name?
Well, I didn't have to narrow down names when I found out Love Bug was a girl. My husband's grandmother was very special to him, and she died years ago. And we knew before we knew Love Bug was a girl, what we would name her. But with Baby Bug, if he would have been a girl, I thought of Audrey. And that was it. I had no other names. And since then, I have never thought bout any name since then. Sorry, I'm no help.

Alright, go join  the Five Question Friday fun! I'm headed to the Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, and Jake Owen concert tomorrow night at Cowboys Stadium. I have never been there, but I hear its pretty cool. My 3 girlfriends and I are going and making a mini weekend out of it. Leaving early tomorrow, going to the hotel and staying as long as we can on Sunday. Mini girls trip? I think so!!!

5-4-12 5QF

Can I just tell yall how excited I am about this weeks Five Question Friday? I seriously, cannot WAIT to see everyones pics. So far, all I have seen is Mama M's , and man that is a sexy purlpe and white dress. With lace. Yes, I said lace.!!!

1. What did you wear to prom? Include a picture if possible.
Well, this is circa 1993 and it was my boyfriend of 2 years Jason, and we thought we were the BOMB. Hair on top of my head, matching shoes, I mean dang, can you get any better? Oh wait, it does. Head to toe in sequins. Gold no less.

The best part? My sister wore this about 10 years ago as Ginger from Gilligans Island for Halloween. You know you have a great prom dress when it can be reworn as a Halloween costume.

2. Would you rather be on the biggest loser or a food eating challenge?
Ugh, dang Scott. Neither. I like to do CrossFit, and if Bob Harper was my coach, I would be ALL.OVER.IT because now he does CF on the Biggers Loser. But that would be the only way.

And I am a pretty picky eater, so putting me on a food challenge show would be difficult. Unless it was a dessert eating contest. Then challenge me all you want.

3. Done fave sonic drink? Refreshing summer drink? (Hey, Kristina...was that a typo, or some "done good" Southern thing?)
Does it have to be non alcoholic? Sonic Cherry Limeade no questions asked.
If not, then I love margaritas, Sangria, swirls (daquiri/margarita combo).

4. What was your first car, and what did you call it?
1984 Chevy Blazer. Yup, even found a pic of it.

 Paid $4500 for this jewel. My dad made an agreement with my sister and I that whatever money we had saved up by the time we were 16, he would match, and that would be the car we could afford. Well since my sister was 4 years older than me, I saw the POS that she got, because she didn't save any money. Let me tell you how much babysitting I did to save up. Yup, $2200. Man, if I could only do that now as easily!!!

5. What's one thing your child or spouse does that sends you over the edge?
Whining and complaining. No matter who it is, my kids or my husband. Whining makes my want to crawl out of my skin. Even other peoples kids. The tone of voice, the long drawn out syllables....but MMMOOOOOOOMMM ugh!!

Complaining is a big one of mine, and I think it is because my kids (mainly my oldest) needs to learn that they have it pretty good. They don't want or need for anything, so complaining about how bad something is, or how they want something, etc, makes me so upset. They have no idea how good they have it, and I know that is something that my husband and I have to teach them, and we are working on it. But don't complain to me about how you don't like something.

Get over it!
