Is it just me or is time flying? Wow! Can’t believe it’s already November!

Welcome!

As always, you may answer these questions in your own post or in the comments section!

On to the questions!

1. What terrifies you the most? Those bugs that start with R….that are gross! AH! I hate them with an extreme passion! Even writing or saying the name makes me shiver! Also, I have a fear of dying alone with no one beside me 😦 Dying is something that we all must go through, I just hate the thought of having it happen with no one around

2. Favorite fall/winter drink? I don’t really have one, honestly…..I mean, Hot chocolate is ok, but my fav. drink year round is one I have only had once in 3 months, A Baja Blast from Taco Bell! LOL   I am trying to drink only water BUT I may allow myself a teensy amount of cheating for Christmas, not sure….I don’t like holiday food that much but I may allow myself one soda or something just on Christmas day, you know….

3. Do you and your spouse have the same political views? Yes and no…I’m not going to go into all the differences but he has some views I disagree with completely and I consider myself more of an Independent but I admit I do have certain leanings….I have become very open minded as an adult and I question a lot of things that I believed as a kid. I believe it’s very healthy to question and always be open to hearing opposing viewpoints instead of being completely closed off. My husband is more of the type to just stick with his side and not want to change. Opposites attract though and I love him regardless, I think if both people are willing to find a middle ground, you can work it out. 🙂

4. What was the last book you read? Was it any good? Well, I’m almost done with “The Night Circus” by Erin Morgenstern and I can’t think of any past books because that is just completely consuming my mind at the moment LOL I just love it and I can’t wait to find out what happens…This book is awesome, I recommend it to people who love to read and love GOOD writing!  I definitely am going to read other books by her in the future to see if they are all this good!

5. Do you look forward to the snow each winter? Why or why not? What snow? I live in East Texas and it’s a rare winter that we see snow and when we do, it’s at the most 2 inches for one day and quickly melts…we just don’t see Snow in this part of Texas but I know some parts actually do in the northern parts….We have strange weather, the most snow I have seen here was in April one year….warm one day, snow the next and it actually stuck for a bit! I happened to drive through some of it and wow, it was very disorienting, I drove like maybe 20 mph at the most and the snow coming down was making me very sleepy. I definitely applaud people who drive in it all the time, that stuff is serious! AND I am also glad we don’t see it all the time because there are too many people here that think driving through snow would be no big deal and fly through it! Accidents occur like crazy when our roads get iced over here because stupid people with NO common sense cruise over the bridges going 90 to nothing and slam their brakes on! Ok, it doesn’t take a genius to know you can’t slam your brakes when driving on ice! UGH! The insanity!

On to the questions!

1. Who wakes up in the morning with the kids, you or hubby? Not applicable yet…but I will go ahead and answer with what I hope it will be when I DO have kids…I would hope BOTH of us would equally get up and take care of things, as in taking turns, but I also realize things don’t always happen as you wish LOL

2. Do you watch the World Series even if your team isn’t in it? I’m not a big sports person so I don’t watch it regardless…my husband watches it no matter what, though

3. What is the best compliment you have received? I’m not sure, I’m the type of girl who doesn’t like to reflect on compliments much because I kind of feel undeserving when someone DOES…which I know that’s not always a good thing but it’s just something I have to learn to accept

4. Do/did you dress up to take your kids trick or treating? Another non applicable one 😦 When I DO have kids, though, I think I probably will because I think it’s fun to have an excuse to act like a kid again!

5. Do you have a favorite bible verse? What is it and why? I think Philippians 3:14-“I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me”

(On a side note: I have a Raffle going on to win a Jewelry Candle of your Choice, tickets are only $1 each and a Max. of 5 allowed per person! I have 9 spots left if you or anyone you know are interested! Either let me know here or message me on FB-link is on the right side of the page! Thanks! 🙂 )

{October 22, 2012}   Take Two!

The news you’ve all been dying to hear..well, not really, but hopefully you’re just a teensy bit interested. I lost two more pounds this last week! That puts me at 36 pounds lost in total and 14 pounds to go to hit my Christmas goal. The closer I get, the more possible it looks!

But there’s something else I am excited about. Since I’ve been with my husband, I have always weighed more than him. Yea, that’s an embarrassing fact for me to admit, but it’s honest. And I want to be completely honest to help me get to where I want to be. As much as my husband loves me regardless of my size, I’ve always had a wish to weigh less than him. You usually think of the big being the Bigger one and the woman being the smaller, right? And I’ve just always had a wish to BE smaller, not just in my height, but in my weight. Well…now I’m really close to that. All I need is literally 4 more pounds loss and I will weigh less than my husband. When I mentioned this to him, he kind of groaned. At 6’1″, all his weight is in his belly and while not healthy for him, at least his fits his frame a lot better than my 5’5″ one. So…I’m getting close to having my secret wish come true and looking forward to making my goal and seeing what beyond that holds in store for me!

*And now, for Part Two!*

This is completely unrelated to my weight loss goals, but I just wanted to share with everyone about a Raffle I am holding on Facebook to win a Jewelry Candle. Tickets are $1 each and I also have a chance for you to win a free ticket for anyone interested. Click here to enter!

On to the questions!

1. Where do you hide junk when people come over? Is it bad to say I despise having guests over? I would just rather go to their place or somewhere else….Not enough hiding places to move all my junk around and I SO was not created as a neat and tidy woman!

2. Do political ads help you decide who you are going to vote for? No, they don’t…I fast forward through them 🙂 Thank you, DVR!

3. What’s your favorite holiday party to host? Did someone miss the answer to my first question…I don’t like having guests over therefore the only way I would host is if it’s somewhere else LOL…and so far I haven’t hosted anything so I really don’t know!

4. You go to an island with your husband and can only take one personal item. What is it? My Kindle Fire….with an unlimited battery somehow? LOL…..Darn, or could I tape a bunch of books together? Wait…how long am I on this island? Am I stuck forever or is it just a vacation? cause if it’s for a few days, one book is fine…if I am stuck forever, then well…I’m screwed! No pun intended……

5. If you found out your spouse was a Dexter style serial killer (only kills people to save others) would you rat? Wow, well, first of all, that would be a little creepy to know my husband was a killer and it’d be kind of hard to overlook what he’s doing even if it was (supposedly) for a good reason….I might not rat him out but I think it would definitely be a marriage ender….I mean, killing people is kind of a huge turn off, just saying!

On to the questions!

1. Did you have any homecoming traditions? I’m going to say No cause the only Homecoming I am familiar with is the High School kind and I didn’t go to any of those

2. Do you ask your spouse before spending money? Most of the time, but I don’t specifically have to ask him for permission or anything

3. If you could be famous for something what would it be? I would love to be a famous blogger/writer 🙂

4. Have you ever seriously thought you were going crazy? Frequently! LOL

5. How do you eat your steak? Burger? I DON’T eat Steak and yes, I am aware that as a Texan, that makes me weird…..IF I eat a Burger, which I haven’t in forever, then well done, I guess

On to the questions!

1. What album/cd/download are you embarrassed to admit you have? You might as well embrace your craziness, right? I still own all my Spice Girls, Britney Spears, N*sync, Backstreet Boy, etc. Cd’s and I STILL listen to them sometimes and sing along….hey, it’s nice to travel down Memory Lane at times! 🙂

2. What’s the one thing your spouse does better than you? He is better at doing sales over the phone and talking on the phone in general, I hate talking over the phone, it’s just not my thing.

3. When do you start buying Halloween Candy? I don’t give out candy to Trick or Treaters at our apts., we don’t really have many people that come by anyways and I don’t buy much of it, except rarely and just a small size for me and/or my husband…..Since I am trying to eat healthier, pretty much the only Halloween candy around will be his

4. Family closets – Yay or nay? Me and my husband share a closet and I guess I will say NAY, just because I would prefer my OWN but you don’t always have that choice so it’s fine sharing for now 🙂

5. Which home/cleaning chore do you hate the most? Why? Washing dishes…they are my nemesis which is why I try to get my hubby to do this for me as much as possible…I seriously wish I had a Dishwasher in my house, as in a PERSON who just washes my dishes, cause we have the machine……

This 5 Question Friday was brought to you by:

On to the questions!

1. Do you prefer to drive to your vacation spot or fly? Sadly, I have never taken flying lessons so I drive 🙂 JK, but I don’t go very far on vacations so driving works!

2. If you could live any where in the world, where would you go and why? I’ve always said I wanted to live in London, England but I think I would only want that if ALL my friends and family lived there, too. I mean, it would be cool, but I would get lonely after awhile without people near me.

3. Should grown women wear leggings? The problem isn’t with “Grown” women cause I think leggings CAN work with women of all ages, BUT I think you have to have a certain figure to pull them off. IF you’re going to wear them as pants, you really have to have the body of a model! Seriously, they are TIGHT! For wearing under a dress or long tunic, I think bigger body types would work with leggings. Lastly, whoever invited leggings in skin tones should be hanged! DO NOT wear leggings that match your skin tone!!!! Every time people do this, they end up on PeopleofWalmart.com because it looks like you’re naked, people! It is NOT attractive!

4. If you could change your name to any other name, would you? And what would it be? I use to want to change my name to Rose Marie when I was a little girl, but now that I am 29, I wouldn’t change my name(other than my last name when I got married!). I’ve grown used to Sharon and I don’t want to have to spend the rest of my life getting used to a new name!

5. What magazines do you have subscriptions to? Cosmopolitan, Redbook, and Reader’s Digest

On to the questions!

1. What is one grammar issue you cannot let go without correction? I’m more of a spelling stickler….I hate misspelled words! As for grammar, elementary errors when you are a college graduate make me want to scream…I know people make mistakes, but some of them are just ridiculous!

 
2. What’s your favorite thing about fall? I love when the weather starts to cool down and get out of the high 90’s and 100’s…I also love the smell of a cool Fall morning, my birthday, and the approach of the Holidays and seeing my family together!
 
3. What’s your favourite dish to take to a potluck? I don’t believe I have ever taken one to a potluck! I remember my mom doing it all the time when I lived with her, though….I’m not much of a fan for cooking so I would probably do macaroni(which I can’t eat) or buy something to take! LOL
My mom makes an awesome Broccoli Cheese Casserole…I have tasted other’s interpretations and none compare!
 
4. When do you start Christmas (Holiday) shopping? Usually after Thanksgiving because I don’t have a HUGE budget as it is…and the closer to Christmas it gets, the better I can figure out how to make it all work!
 
5. Did you move homes a lot growing up? Just once, when we moved from the capital of Texas to this smaller city I now live in
