Five Question Friday

It’s my first “Five Question Friday” found at Our Happy Home, hosted by My Little Life.  
Click the button above to share more about you and meet other bloggers!
1. Do you have any nicknames and if so how did they come about?
– I don’t really get called much except Mom these days.  I have a friend that calls me Peas ’cause I call her Carrots though.
2.  What is your birth order amongst your siblings?
– I am the youngest of 6.  Don’t get all excited though, they are 5 half brothers and we didn’t grow up together.
3.  In a movie of your life, who would play your significant other?
– A movie of my life would be more like a documentary, but if he had the choice it’d be Nicolas Cage.  I would lean more towards Christian Bale or Sam Worthington.  Aren’t they scrumptious?
4.  What is currently your favorite song?
– This song has been stuck in my head for-eva…  I love Hayley Williams!

5.  Are you saving money right now?  Big or small purchase?
-Yes!  We are attempting to save up for an adventure to South Dakota next Summer.  If we’re successful, we’re thinking about going a little further west as well!
Those are my five answers!  Make sure to visit My Little Life to meet and learn about other bloggers!

Let the Sweating Begin

About a month ago, I entered a contest on the Family Circle/Momster website by asking a simple question.

When is the best time of day to exercise?  Early morning or afternoon.

There were literally hundreds of questions being asked.  I didn’t think that my question would be one to get chosen, but it did!
You can check out the other 9 Q&A’s by clicking here.  Lots of great questions and insightful answers.  I’m so excited to have had my question answered, but… I also won a work out set!
How awesome is that!?!  Now I just have to find that will power to get up and get working!  I know it’s around here somewhere….

What the *#$%&

GAP | $69.50 | Faded Black Wash legging jean

I have never been a fan of the skinny jean.  Possibly because I don’t find them comfortable, but mainly because you have to be a size negative 10 to pull them off.  Now someone has designed some monstrosity called…

That’s jeans + leggings or just denim leggings.  The main difference between these and the regular skinny jean is that the jegging has more Lycra.  You know, so they can be tighter.
It’s just my personal opinion, but aren’t clothes supposed to cover you?  Not stick to you as if someone painted them on.  While browsing these… things…. I noticed that in nearly every photo the ladies were wearing heels.  What about the rest of us who rarely wear those heels?  Do they go well with say… sneakers?

If women aren’t already overly self conscious of our bodies, this just gets worse.  Do babies really need to have denim diapers?  I mean … they POOP in them!  I want my kids to be “fashion forward”, but there is no way that I’d buy these for a toddler or infant!  Kids at that age don’t really care what they look like.  They know what makes them uncomfortable though.

I’m sure that loads of people love these types of jeans.  That’s why we have choices and choices are great.  So… make the right choice here people.  Please don’t pay $70 for “jeggings”!

P.S. If you are a guy… skinny jeans always get a big ol’ NO!!!   

iLove Tuesday Tunes *Elvis*

Yesterday marked the 33rd anniversary of the day Elvis Presley died. This is one of my absolute favorite Elvis songs.

Getting to Know You – August 16th

Getting to know YOU

Joining in on “Getting To Know You” this week…
To play, copy the questions and answer them. Then go visit MannLand5 and link up so other bloggers can visit and “get to know you.”

1. What kind of athlete has the hottest body?
I have always loved football players, but after seeing some of those hunks at the World Cup… I’m not sure who to pick!

2. Are you a planner or a procrastinator?
Procrastinator!  I do make to-do lists, but then end up not doing them.

3. Diet or regular (soda)?
I try to stay away from them altogether, but if I do drink soda it has to be regular.

4. What’s your one “must have” for Fall?
New hair color!

5. What’s your favorite fast food restaurant?
My favorite place to eat fast food has to be Sonic.  They have the best selection of shakes and you can get whatever you want from their menu any time of day.

6. What do you think is the sexiest profession for a guy?
Hmmm…  definitely not the suit wearing type…

7. Did you wear braces?
Not currently, but I need them.

8. Would you rather have a guy that’s super sexy or kind?
If you aren’t kind, that’s not sexy so….

Flying Friends

In a continuation of sorts from Friday’s post…

I am so in love with these flowers!  Every day there are tons of butterflys and the occasional bee on them.  I wanted to share all the species types that I’ve seen. Enjoy!
