In the car.
With three fighting children in the back seat.
I could drink to lower my stress.
Or I could entertain myself by making funny faces.
Joining up with my new bestie Gentri Lee again this week because it is so much fun!
She doesn't know we are BFFs yet, but one day she will realize that her life just isn't the same without me in it.
Just sayin'.

1. Hamburger or Hot dog? (veggie versions count)
Hot dog...but not BBQ ed. I just like a boiled wiener on a simple, boring bun. Sometimes I like to get adventurous and add Cheez Whiz to my bun, but I am easy to please. Add some bacon to it, and I will make out with you.
2. If you had to live on any other planet in our solar system, besides Earth, which would you choose?
Mars. Why? Because it is the only planet that has a solid surface, co2 and liquid water (I think). That's all I some chocolate and a good book. Uranus would be fun because I could tell others I live in/on Uranus and then we can all giggle like schoolgirls for hours and hours.
3. Share a photo of an outfit that represents your personal style, please. (doesn't have to be of you)
Take away the bling, and this is me.  Every day of the year.  Now if I could just lose a few pounds to fit back into my skinny jeans, but, to be honest, I am starting to think they just aren't meant for my body type.  I have hips.  Hips that carried and birthed three 8+ pound babies.  I have thighs.  I have junk in my trunk.  And I am over the age of 35 with a muffin top.  So, yeah....shoot me now.
This outfit is also an accurate representation of my style.  Minus the bling, because I don't wear bling, ever.  Maybe I should.  Maybe I would fit in with the rest of the world if I put a little more effort into it. 
Its too much work.
On my "To Do" list in the very near future-buy a pair of moccasins.
Stay tuned for photos.
You know you cant wait.
And, because I am searching my best friend Pinterest and feeling all nicey nice, lets go for dressy clothes.
Me+dressy clothes do not happen often, but I really do enjoy dressing up once or twice a year.......
Give me a dress{with sleeves} and a sexy pair of heels, and I am a happy gal.
Giuseppe Zanotti pumps

4. Would you rather get ready for the day or get ready for bed?
Bed.  If I could live in my jammies 24/7, I would.  Heck, I would sleep 24/7 if my kids didn't require a parent. 
5. You have to choose between never having eyelashes or never having eyebrows, which would you choose?
I would choose to go without eyelashes.  Then I would find someone who could give me fake eyelashes and live happily ever after.
Eyebrows....people just need them to separate their eyes from their forehead.  I don't care if you have to pencil them in or use furry stickers.  Something just needs to separate your face from your skull.
{even Jennifer Aniston looks weird without them}

6. What do you want to be when you grow up?
Still figuring that one out.  I have achieved my dream of being a Mommy, but lost myself in the process so now need to do some serious soul searching.  Hold me.
7. Do you set your clocks right on time, or a few minutes ahead or behind?
Every clock in the house is set at a different time...just by a minute here or there to make things interesting around the house.  It's fun.  Try it.  Then set all of the alarms for different times when you wont be home.  Your family will love it.

Annnnnnnnnnnd, just because......
4 year old thinking she is a supermodel.
You're welcome.

Love the face! No eyebrows is weird but eyelashes can be added and not look weird.

Cheese Whiz on a hotdog...I'm not sure what to say about that.

I like the outfits you picked. I'm not a real flashy person either, but I do love my necklaces and earrings.

Niagra post coming soon!

Heatherlyn said...

You. Are. Amazing! I love your blog!

I can completely relate to #6. That whole what-do-you-want-to-be-when-you-grow-up question really stumps me.

And the outfit? I think the necklaces is my favorite part! So if you ever do get that outfit just mail the necklace my way. :) (Oh, and I didn't use to ever wear jewelry, and now I love the necklaces and bracelets so you never know you might someday find that you like them too.)

LOVE LOVE LOVE the dress!!!! I would like to have it in my closet!

I'm in the achieved the dream of being a Mommy and lost myself in the process phase now too! Seriously loved your answers. #3 Yep... except my babies were tiny so I'd like to know where this fat came from they left behind!

Jenners said...

OMG … I never realized just how much you need eyebrows! I will never complain about mine again.

Jana Faith said...
