Q & A Monday: ABC's of Me

Hey y'all!!  I hate that I didn't get to post much last week.  It has been pretty busy around here lately.  I have a lot of posts to work on and things to share, but getting down to business has not worked out as planned.  I look forward to this week being way more productive on the blog end.

This weekend was super busy too.  We started our day early on Saturday.  I colored my hair, got dressed, and we headed out to the Stumptown Comics Fest at the convention center in Portland.  It is always a fun event checking out the artwork, comics, and such.  Sean and I always find funky artwork we adore.  After nerding out, we made our way to Lane Bryant because I had my Reward Bucks to spend.  I was kind of bummed the maxi dresses didn't work out, but I found a great skirt! Saturday ended on a fun note when we played our monthly Bunco game with our friends/family.  I even won $10 for coming in 3rd place that night! 

We slept in on Sunday, had a late breakfast, and made a plan of attack for driving by houses that are on sale.  We finally made the decision to start house hunting a couple weeks ago, so this is all new, mostly exciting, and completely overwhelming to me.

I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend!

It is time again for Friend Makin' Monday.  If you have a blog, I would like to invite you to answer the questions as well.  Leave me a comment here, so I know you are playing.  Then you can also leave a comment over at All The Weigh, so other folks can check out your answers.  It is a fun way to connect to other bloggers.

ABC's of Me
Here’s how it works…you’ll choose topics about yourself, your likes, dislikes, etc.  according to each letter in the alphabet, and share a little with us. 

A)  As I type this, I am watching All-Star Celebrity Apprentice.  Gary Busey is insane.

B)  I love Bunco nights with my friends and family.  I'm so glad we are doing it because it means I get to see them all once a month for sure.  It is truly a highlight of any month.

C)  My spirit animal is probably a sparkly, fat chihuahua with wings.

D)  My oldest furkid is almost 16 and a half.  Other than being mostly blind and deaf, he is in amazing shape.  I hope we have a lot of years with him yet.

E)  I need to work on eliminating some of my clothing from my dressing room.  It is very hard for me to throw things away.

F)  I own over 15 feather boas.

G) I forgot we needed to get groceries this weekend, so I have nothing for lunches this week.  Oy vey!

H)  I am looking forward to my haircut next weekend.  My bangs are getting super long.

I)  The husband and I are going to see Iron Man 3 next weekend to celebrate our friend's birthday.

J)  Return of the Jedi has been my favorite Star Wars movie since I was a very small child.

K)  Knowledge is power.  I wish people focused more on what they know and less on what they want to look like.  Being intelligent is a good quality and very attractive.

L)  My father-in-law passed away from leukemia 9 months ago.  I hope Sean and I can do something now and then to give to charity in honor of his dad.

M)  May is CRAZY BUSY.  My birthday is on Mother's Day and since my mom-in-law is out of town on a fabulous vacation, I don't have to share my day with anyone. :-) (Sometimes I like to be selfish that way. lol)

N)  Only two and a half months left until my NKOTB concerts!  I still need Vancouver, B.C tickets.

O)  I LOVE to organize.  I will organize and label just about anything and enjoy every minute of it.  Don't let me go into The Container Store.  I totally spazz out from all the amazing organization!

P)  My Michael Jackson Pandora station was so on point this weekend.  It was playing the perfect mix of 80s and 90s pop, oldies, Motown, and such. It usually isn't such perfection.

Q)  I had to ponder Q for a while.  I came up with two answers that display the extremes of my brain.  lol  The good version: I hope to decorate our future home with some quirky artwork.  The bad version: My mom used to beat me with a horse quirt.  (A quirt is a stiff whip with a leather loop at the end.)

R)  I really want to take a road trip with Sean some time.  I have seen a lot of the US in my travels as a kid (we moved around a lot), but I think it would be fun to go with Sean and for him to see a lot of the country as well.

S)  It was so gloriously sunny yesterday.  I put my SPF mineral foundation on my face but forgot my chest, so my chest is slightly pink and warm.

T)  I have 3 tattoos and ideas for at least 4 more. 

U)  Ulta is driving me insane.  It is the only store in my area that carries the specific hair color I love the most.  For the last 3 months, they have not had it in stock so I have had to use something different (which I hate to do).  I've used this opportunity to try some other brands and colors, but I want my favorite one back!!

V)  My husband and I love to play video games together.  Right now we are in the middle of Lego Lord of the Rings, among many others.  He plays Skyrim on the Xbox 360 and I play it on my computer.  I LOVE Skyrim!

W)  I can't believe we are going to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary in a month!  Time flies!

X)  I was never into Xavier Roberts and the whole Cabbage Patch craze.

Y)  Regular yellow mustard is my least favorite of all mustards.  My favorites are honey mustard, sweet hot mustard, and horseradish mustard.  And the German restaurant in town has a great ginger mustard for pretzel and sausage dipping.

Z)  Zillow is a house-hunting website we have been using lately to track down houses in our preferred neighborhoods.  It is pretty helpful for starting out and getting an overview of prices and such.

Now get to it and post your answers!  Link up with Kenlie and let me know you are participating.  I hope you all have a wonderful week.


  1. I loved Q!! haha I remember my mom pulling over to the side of the road because my brother and I wouldn't quit fighting, she ripped a switch off of a tree.....worst spanking I ever received!!!

  2. Yeah, I don't like that birthday-sharing bullshit either. The only thing that's sort of nice is that I was actually born on Mother's Day, so it's kind of special with my mom. (My mom and I get along very well.) The sharing was even more bullshit when I was college-age and for a while thereafter with the graduate degrees, because of graduation weekend. Also...I am envious of your feather boa collection. I should buy one for my birthday. I need to decide what I'm wearing first, though....

  3. Oh yes, my brother and I got slapped and spanked an awful lot for fighting. So glad I am an adult now! lol

  4. Oh, I forget we have the same birthday! I was born on Mother's Day too, but we all know I am not thought of as the gift I once was. lol I just want my day to be for me. It's one day. It's the only day I get. I don't know how Sean manages since his birthday is on Christmas. I guess that is why I try so hard to make a big deal out of his birthday.
    I didn't realize I had so many boas until our memorial for our friend a couple months ago where it was mandatory we all wear boas. Most people didn't have any. I bought 6 or 7 hot pink ones for decor at my wedding reception and the rest have all been acquired throughout the years. I need more opportunities to wear them!!
    Girl, I don't know what I am wearing either! I have 3 fun outings I am attending that weekend. I need to put my thinking cap on!
