Anything Goes Wednesday

I had every intention to keep up with

Unfortunately, life and work just seem to get in the way :(
Actually, I have only missed the weekend days, so that isn't so bad!
However, I haven't written posts according to the topics.

So I am taking today to catch up on some of the assigned topics for each day :)
WARNING! Long post coming your way!

Here it goes!!!!

Day 1: Story of your life in 250 words or just a paragraph

Born in December of 1978 to two amazing parents!
Was given the best brother a girl could ask for in October of 1982.
Grew up on the shores of Lake Erie.
Born & raised a Cleveland Browns fan.
Played softball and was a cheerleader from age 6 all the way through high school.
Spent summers vacationing in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
Studied Radio & Television Broadcasting at Ohio Center for Broadcasting.
Started working at the best job ever in 2000!
Met my husband at the above mentioned job :)
Moved to my current town in the Fall of 2003.
Married my crazy guy in October of 2006 :)
Started working with my husband again in the summer of 2010.
Welcomed the greatest little guy in the entire world on December 5, 2011!
Continuing to write our life/family story as each day goes by :)

Day 3: Things that make you uncomfortable
Dirty feet in bed, dirty feet anywhere really
Eating alone
Not knowing anyone except the host at a party, get together, etc.

Day 4: Favorite Quote

Carpe' Diem = Seize the Day
Or as I just found out "Enjoy the day"
I remember hearing this quote in the movie Dead Poets Society and I absolutely loved it!
I can't say that I follow those words, but some days I try :)
It just reminds me to "enjoy the day"!

Day 5: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends

I have two wonderful ladies I recently became blogger friends with that I have to mention here.

The first is Stephanie @ Bourbon & Glitter
She was my very first follower and I am so grateful!
I honestly look forward to a new post from her each day.
I can't wait to see what fun things she has done, get updates on Hawkeye, etc.
Not to mention she makes and posts recipes for alcohol cupcakes!
If we lived closer I think we would totally be real friends too :)
Stephanie is just thoroughly enjoyable to read about and message with!

Rachel @ floral & fudge
Another person I think would be a great real friend if we only lived closer!
She just seems so down to earth and sweet :)
She also has a son only a few months older than X and I think they would totally hit it off as well!
Oh yeah, and she posts dessert recipes (usually featuring chocolate in some way) every week :)

Are you sensing a trend here?? :)

Day 6: If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer "what do you do"?
I'm a mom to X
I'm a wife to Mic
I'm a girl/chic trying to figure out life as I go through it every day

Day 7: The thing(s) your most afraid of

I am afraid of many things in life honestly, probably too many to list.
One of my biggest fears (non life related) is HORROR MOVIES!
I can't even watch the commercials for them or I will have nightmares!
Heck, I can't really watch anything with graphic fight scenes, killing, etc. without having nightmares!
Horror movies = Me not sleeping at all!

Side note: My brother is obsessed with horror movies :(
Seriously? How are we related???

Day 8: A piece of advice you have for others

Don't take life or things so seriously
Now I just need to figure out how to follow my own advice :)

Day 9: A moment in your life

December 5, 2011 - The day we became a family :)

Day 12: What do you miss?

My grandparents

Day 14: Ten things that make you happy

My little X man :)
Beach Vacations
My crazy, stressful, caring husband
Superman Ice Cream
Working out
Teen dramas
My functional/dysfunctional family
Boy bands
Fresh strawberries with Cool Whip

Again...notice a theme here?
Thank god I like to work out since a lot of things that make me happy revolve around food! lol!

Day 15: A day in the life
My day/life consists of handling X and working all day at the office.
Fun, I know! :)

Are you following the "blog every day in May" with your posts?
What other blogs should I check out that you enjoy?

Until next time...

  1. I can't believe you got all of that in one post! Fabulous!!

    1. I skipped a few days, but I tried to get as many as I could :) Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Stephanie is awesome and I'm diggin' the Lake Erie shout out, but I lovelovelove horror movies!

  3. Aww thanks for that!! I'm glad you still like me ;) We would absolutely be friends, we'd have such a great time together. With zero horror movies involved, because I agree, they are the worst!! Nightmares for weeks.
