Q & A Monday: Inside My Head

Hey, y'all!!

Welcome back from your (hopefully) wonderful weekend!  My Saturday was spent at a joint birthday party for my aunt and I. (My birthday is still not for a few weeks.)  My cousin hosted the party with the other women in my stepdad's family.  We ate tasty food, chatted, and opened gifts.  It was very fun!

My allergies started whipping my butt, so by Saturday night my voice was trying to leave me.  I stayed home Sunday to rest and work on house chores, while I sent the husband off to the grocery store and other errands.

I was very distracted by all the happenings in Boston last week that I barely made time for the blog.  I hope to distract myself with more blog things this week as I have a lot of saved up stuff to share with you.

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 as well.  It is a fun way to connect to other bloggers.

Inside My Head

I like…being a homebody, but I also enjoy spending time with the people who are important to me and who love me.

I don’t like…lobster or crab.  Sometimes I will eat things that have crab in it, but never on its own.

I love…the way my husband looks at me.  It makes me feel loved, warm, snuggly, appreciated, happy, beautiful, and perfectly at home.  He's the best person I've ever met.

I dream of…a world where people break out in song and dance down the street.

I wonder…if we'll find a house to buy in the time period we want to find it in. I know nothing about buying a house, so I am having to give myself a crash course.

I know…I still have a lot of work to do on myself.

I went…to Ulta this weekend and they STILL don't have my normal hair color that I love.  I had to try yet another brand/shade as I wait for my normal one to be restocked.

I think…too much sometimes.  I have to implement "Anti-Stew Zones" so I do not stew on issues/problems/people.

I plan…on getting up earlier and earlier each week.  It just doesn't always work out that way.

I regret…not speaking my mind sooner in life.

I do…love to play Skyrim!

I drink…water and coffee in a normal day. lol 

I wish…I had a benefactor with endless means that could fund all of my wishes.

I am…a smart, strong, flawed, emotionally beat-up, loving, funny woman.

I am not…able to blow bubblegum bubbles or whistle.  I did finally learn how to snap my fingers though. lol

I need…tickets for NKOTB in Vancouver, B.C.  Time is running out!

I hope…to go to the beach this summer.  I need a few days away.

I want…a teleportation device to make traveling fast and easy!

I sometimes…get mad that I wasn't born into a family of quality people.  I've had to sever ties with those that refuse to treat me with love and that is a very hurtful thing to go through.

I always…sing along with songs on the radio and insert my own lyrics about chihuahuas.

I can…drink a lot of red wine without realizing it. lol

I cannot…tolerate the wearing of Crocs.

I avoid…conversations about religion or politics with family members because I usually have a completely opposite viewpoint.

I will…clean out my closet sometime in the next few months.

Now give it a go and don't forget to link up with Kenlie!  (Let me know you participated so I can read yours as well.)  Happy Monday!


  1. ...you haven't tried on Crocs, have you? That was my downfall. I swore those ugly pieces of crap would never touch my feet, ever. Then, I was at the airport in Denver (layover between OKC and Seattle), and my shoes were giving me blisters. They have a whole Crocs store at that airport. I tried on a pair and my feet were happy. Now you can pry them off my cold dead feet. I live in these sandals all summer (I also have white ones). I know they're kind of ugly...but they don't hurt my feet and they don't make my back hurt after I walk around in them all day.

  2. No, I will admit I have not put them on my feet because they are so hideously ugly. lol I don't even like when mothers let their little kids wear them. I have heard they are super comfy and that is why people overlook their ugliness, but I am not content to do so. lol But I will also admit that some of the sandal styles and flats they have on their website look cute. If I found them on sale, I would buy some of the cute ones to try. Do they run true to size or narrow? I have wide feet.

  3. They're really all over the place, width-wise. The sandals I linked are just perfect (I also have wide feet) Some of the flats are kind of narrow...they'll stretch, but I think it looks tacky. Also, the flats make your feet sweat (it might not be as bad in your neck of the woods, but here in the summer? Blisterrific). Best thing to do is to go try them on...they have them at most sporting goods type stores (I know Academy and Bass Pro Shops carry them here), at Kohl's sometimes, and at Shoe Carnival (I can't remember if they have those up there or not). Or order them from somewhere that has free return shipping. The classic clogs are ugly as shit, granted. But I don't think a pair of Crocs with jeans is as ugly as a pair of Uggs with shorts or a miniskirt. Also, with the clogs, I wear socks.

    Honestly, the real selling point for me was that they didn't make my back hurt...I have had some problems with degenerative discs in my lower back, and all shoes hurt, except my Crocs and one pair of Clarks mary janes (that are also ugly).

  4. Thanks for the feedback. I don't understand why it is so hard for companies to make their shoes more comfortable. I certainly can't wear flip flops, flats, or other unsupportive shoes all day or when walking a lot because I always get feet, leg, back issues from them. It can't be that expensive for companies to add proper padding and support to shoes.

  5. Very interested about the crocs being comfy and good for back pain
    Is it because they absorb the shock ?
    I'm very heavy with knee and back issues
    I'm curious now about the crocs
    I've always laughed and poo pooed them for being hideous

    1. The good part is that they are coming out with better looking styles. But many people swear by them for comfort and less pain. Worth looking into if you have a lot of issues.
