Wee Wednesdays and... we're alive!

First of all, Elliot and I are ALIVE! ALTHOUGH we are in the middle of a seemingly never ending thunderstorm, don't worry, our house didn't flood or anything. Truth is, for some reason I haven't been able to connect to my mom's internet- not on my iPad OR my macbook. So I've been living without for a week. I know, crazy, right?! The worst part is, I have about a million adorable pictures to post. Oh well, those will have to wait. For now, I decided to link up for Wee Bit of Me Wednesday! :) Don't worry, though- I'm determined to find a way to get those pictures up!

{one} what profession have you always admired?
NICU nurses. They are trusted with caring for seriously ill babies when their parents cannot, and they see some incredibly sad things. That's a lot of weight on one person's shoulders. Not to mention the fact that they are surrounded with crying babies {and parents} 24/7 and still manage to keep their sanity.

{two} what would the title of your memoir/biography be if it was written today?
Something crazy, somehow combining moving all over the country, eating disorders, babies, birth defects, running, and the life of an army wife into a few short words. I've had a pretty crazy life so far.

{three} how far do you commute to work?
Well, since I'm currently a stay at home mom, and my "job" currently would be my son, so I have to wake up every morning around 6am and walk about three steps to Elliot's crib. I know, it's rough.

{four} are your earlobes attached or detached?

{five} do you eat the unpopped kernels of popcorn at the bottom of the bag?
Ew, no way.

{six} what is the strangest gift you’ve ever received?
Hmmm. Well, I was once given a pack of boys' boxers... but I think my grandma just got confused and labelled it wrong :) Honestly, I haven't really ever gotten any strange gifts! My family and friends have great taste, what can I say?

{seven} what is one tv show that you wish hadn’t been cancelled?
I'm about to go REALLY old-school. Boy Meets World. Who cares if Corey and Topanga would be in their 30's now? I bet it would still be an awesome show.

{eight} what is something that you are saving money for right now?
A new car, since Aaron's mustang decided to pick a fight with a giant yellow pole and the pole won. Besides, mustangs aren't very "family friendly" anyways...

{nine} what hobby would you like to take up?
This is going to sound totally dorky, but I don't care. Quilting! My stepmother-in-law makes the most gorgeous quilts. I think it would be an awesome hobby. They make great gifts and I'd never have to buy a comforter set {or blanket} again.

{ten} how many times a year do you get really dressed up?
Um... maybe once or twice, if I'm lucky. Which stinks because I REALLY love red lipstick and high heels.


  1. Oh my gosh, Boy Meets World is my absolute FAVORITE show!! I have all of the available seasons and I watch them when Jamie works late, lol!! When I was younger, I had a poster of Topanga on my bedroom door. I was a little obsessed. Haha!

  2. Boy Meets World is a fantastic show. So, I completely agree with you on that one! & quilting is not dorky at all, if I had any talent, I would probably take that up as well. Especially since I have a bunch of handmade quilts that mean a lot to me.

  3. I know a few quilters ... and none of them are dorky LOL! Also I am with you on the NICU thing. Julianna was in for 6 days and I admired those nurses so much. I left there wanting to become one... they are brave souls!

  4. Oh and p.s. Lipstick Jungle qith Brooke SHields should have never been canceled!!! That is the show I wish was never canceled LOL

  5. glad to hear your surviving the crazy weather! and there is NO shame in quilting. i would love to learn too :)

  6. Like everyone eles, I loved Boys Meets World. LOVED IT. FEENEY!!!!!!!!!!

  7. I loved Boy Meets Girl! I wanted Topanga's long hair so bad! adn wished my teachers were that cool...
