Sunday Social - All About Food - Yummy!!

1. If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Man I am not sure that I could only pick one this.  I sure do love me some food!! Since I have to pick I think..ummmm....probably...(said in my Kid Clammy voice) Nope can't do it.  I am not usually a commitment phob but I have to in this case!

2. What's your guilty pleasure/comfort food?
Mexican Food.  Love me some chips, salsa, rice, beans, and margaritas!

3. What's the weirdest/craziest thing you've ever eaten?
Probably the fried squid from our science dissection in the 8th grade.  I also wrote my name with the ink!

4. What foods do you avoid at all costs?
Sushi.  Man have I tired but every time I gag and get sick. 

5. What meal reminds you of your childhood?
Green Mashed Potatoes and Hot Dogs.  I used to ask for it every year on my birthday and my dad hated it but would eat it because it was my special day!!

Doing the Happy Dance

Today I am doing a Happy Dance.  A Happy Dance because of the following
1) Its Friday for crying out loud!!
2) We are headed for a little camping this weekend.  Looking forward to some away time with my hubby, kiddos and some good friends
3)No work for 2 WHOLE days!
4) We are heading to Vegas for an adult weekend aways in less than 1 month!! 
5) Both kiddos slept thru the night last night!!  YAHOO!!
6) I got some really great compliments about my kiddos this week which always has a Mama wearing her proud button
7) Although house hunting SUCKS right now, the Hubs and I have made some decisions on our next steps
8) While potty training has not gone well to say the least -Kid Clammy did ask at least 4 different times this week to use the potty.  So hopefully we are headed in the right direction
9) While I am not excited about how fast time is moving and how fast my babies are growing I am excited about all the time I get to spend with them and even though it is almost August and it is shaping up to be a busy month we have some really fun things happening.  Wedding, Vegas, Birthday Parties, and hopefully other fun stuff
10) Once again it's FRIDAY - hope you all enjoy your weekend!!

So I love me some social media. Back in the day there was the good ole MySpace. Does anyone remember that! I am sure I am making myself look totally old right now but oh we'll. I have since moved on to a Facebook account and find myself checking on people's status' a few times a day, or play Candy Crush, and looking a photos and funny sayings. I also have Instagram which who doesn't just love it.   For me it seems far less dramatic than Facebook so that's a plus right there.  Not to mention all the fun things I am learning to do with the pictures!  Then comes along Twitter.  I mean how could you not love a cute little bird symbol?  Well it took me awhile to jump on that band wagon. I signed up and mainly just looked at pics because I was not getting the whole "RT" and tweet and only limited characters. Well now that I am following more people and blogging a little more I apparently need help. I STILL don't get twitter and I wish I did. So I guess I need some pointers, tips, lessons something to help me understand how this whole thing works. I assume you can't comment on something someone says unless you retweet?  I think you "tag" someone in their tweet by using the @ sign and their twitter name.  Am I anywhere close?  This is all so complicated in my book. 
Bottom line I would like to be more tweet-tastic so hook a sister up. Send tips, advice, dos don'ts anything. Then you could follow my progress on twitter @bbax562 
Maybe just maybe there will be hope for me yet!

Hello Wednesday

Oh Wednesday - where have you been all my life (well at least since the last time you were here)?  Oh you were hiding behind Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.  Well I am glad to see you again and that you are hiding any more - at least until you hide again tomorrow.  I heart you Wednesday so much today because you are telling me that the weekend is almost here.  A weekend that will involve two days of no work, a camping trip, family time, time with great friends oh and maybe just maybe if I am feeling a little crazy a cocktail!!  Look out weekend - because here I come!!

Happy Hump Day!!

Sunday Social

I decided to try out today's Sunday Social.  

1. What was your favorite TV show as a kid?
It started out with the Mickey Mouse Club, Kids Incorporated, then moved on to shows such as Full House and Saved by the Bell.

2. What is your current favorite TV show?
Army Wives, The Voice, Nashville

3. Which reality show would you NEVER do?
Survivor. I couldn't do it. I 100% agree with this one!!!
I just couldn't hang.  I love food, sleeping in a bed and not "roughing" it way too much!!

4. Which reality show would you LOVE to do?
I think I am way to chicken for this...but either Biggest Loser or Big Brother!!

5. What is the TV personality/character that you feel is most like you?
I am not really sure.  This is a tough question!

6. Which TV character would you want to date?
Oh my goodness - yet another tough question.  If I was going to pick one it would probably be...Bob Harper from Biggest Loser.  I really like what he does for people.  


Happy Sunday!!!

Good Intentions

Good Intentions...I have them, I want to follow through on them, sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.
  • Sometimes I plan on calling that friend I haven't talked to in a long time, but time slips away and we don't call.  Other times I do call and am so happy that I did because it was the best convo I had in a long time.   
  • Sometimes I plan on having a great eating day - them temptation sets in and oops there goes that intention out the window and I fall off the wagon so to speak.
  • Sometimes I plan on cleaning the house, but the kids are calling wanting you to play with them and that sounds much better than cleaning.

  • Sometimes I plan on blogging everyday, every other, once a week, whatever the case may be and sometimes well life just gets in the way and I don't.  Sometimes I get so excited if I get a post in...hopefully more will come soon!!
I have had good intentions for all of these things and so much more, and busy life, obligations, diaper changes, dinner fixing, laundry, cleaning, work all of it gets in the way.
