11 Fun or Random Facts About Me

1.  Cockroaches strike the fear in me. I freeze and start screaming for my husband.

2.  I am pretty sure that being addicted to coffee and wine is like being addicted to uppers and downers..

3. I am the most self conscious person you will ever meet. My goal in 2012 is to change that. I hope the Mayans don't take that away from me!

4. I love what I do for a living but I have no confidence in designing things for my own home...

5. Pinterest makes me feel really stupid everytime I am on there. I constantly say "Really? Why didn't I think of that?"

6. I am only a stay at home mom one day a week (Fridays) and it kicks my ass. You full time SAHM's rule!

7. I get really anxious in crowds of people I don't know and tend to blend into the wall.

8. I have been to 8 Jimmy Buffett concerts and I pray he is still touring when Logan is old enough to go.

9. I'm an only child but I don't feel like I fit that typical mold.

10.  I cannot sleep without my hair in a ponytail. If my hair is on my neck I flip out because it makes me hot!

11. Logan is growing freakishly fast. I am overwhelmed!

Questions From Kelly For Me To Answer
1. Where is the coolest place you have traveled? - St. Thomas was pretty awesome. We took a taxi from the cruise ship to a little beach called Coki Beach, ate lunch in the sand and fed dog bones to fish. LOVED IT.

2. What is your favorite book? EEK! Only one? Well Water for Elephants ranks way up there but I have read Message From Nam by Danielle Steel at least 6 times. Not for the romance but because I was obsessed with Vietnam in High School. (ok maybe some of the romance was cool...)

3. What are you most thankful for in your life? My Family. Lee and Logan are the best things that have ever happened to me and our families are both so supportive of us!

4. What is the best concert you've been to? Jimmy Buffett at Minute Maid Park in Houston. AWESOME time.

5. What is your favorite Superbowl party recipe? I hover over the 7 layer dip. I make mine a little special by adding Taco Seasoning to the sour cream layer.

6. Why did you start blogging? Well i started blogging a long time ago, in college, just because my friends were doing it. Then I started up again just for fun. Once Logan came along and I saw how hot the blogging world had gotten, I got very into it!

7. Did you have any resolutions for 2012? Do what I need to in order to be happy with myself. So far this included losing 30 pounds, which I am halfway done with, and I may have become a shopoholic as of recently...

8. Who is your favorite author? Patricia Cornwell

9.  If you could switch careers and have your dream job, what would it be? A wedding planner. But I don't want to work on Saturdays!

10. Whats the best movie you've seen lately? We watched Drive last night and it was awesome, but it may be too gory for some tastes. Otherwise I saw Moneyball twice. It's wonderful.

11. Charlie Sheen or Kim Kardashian? Kim Kardashian because I am pretty sure I am smarter than her and Charlie gives me the creeps!

I understand your reaction to cockroaches. They have the same freeze effect on me. Ick! The other one is scorpions. I found two in our house last week. Both times I woke my husband up from a full sleep to come save me.
