Unofficial MeMe Day

I’m declaring today a MeMe Day because quite frankly, you don’t want to hear all the crazy stuff going on in my head right now. So here are 2 MeMe’s I was tagged for recently.

Krystyn at Really Are You Serious tagged me for this semi-photo meme:

I am supposed to post pictures of one favorite thing in my house that I love, or something that has a special story, and tell you all about it.

Mostly, this one speaks for itself. It is our backyard and our pool. This is sort of our oasis. Where everything is beautiful and calm. It’s very special to us because we (rather Tim) picked out and planted each plant by hand. It was our vision and our (by “our” I mean Tim) hard work. We spent a lot of time in our hot tub together when I was pregnant with Karys and spend a lot of time in the summer with our friends and family. It certainly helps on those hot, sticky, summer days!

This next part is basically everything I need, or that is in my purse that I carry with me at all times. Try not to laugh too much here.
Here we have my purse upon just dumping it out. Wow. That’s a lot of crap!

After organizing it, I find that I have the following items:
wallet, camera & case, ketosis sticks (for low carb maintenance), Pepto Bismal chewables (from when I was sick months ago), Immodium (also from when I was sick months ago), a tape measure (because who knows when you need to know your waist size, right?), powder, hand wipes (from NYC in Feb), safety pins, change, a broken clip, extra keys, High Maintenance mints (cause they are oh-so-cute), highlighter, 5 pens, lipstick, 2 lipgloss (in case I lose one!), sunglasses, the other part of the broken clip, B&BW spray, my mobile phone, and a small Coach wallet for my gift cards

I guess it’s not as bad as a lot of purses considering I have not switched it out in about 7 months or so. I’m still angling for that new white summer Coach…stay tuned! The Bet II ends tomorrow!

I tag: Everyone!

Yes, because I am just that lazy.
Please comment me if you do it. I’d love to take a peek inside your purse!


Steph at The Daily Grind has tagged me for a get to know your blogger friends meme. So, here we go…

1. Favorite Person – I think I’d have to say the hubby and the baby girl on that one – obvious huh?

2. Favorite Food – Seafood and Mexican are about tied at the moment

3. Quirks about you – I freak out without my lipgloss and apply very frequently – there are 2 in my purse and 1 in my pencil holder at work. I also cannot relax if my kitchen is dirty or if anything is out of place. Maybe that’s a tad bit OCD?

4. How would the person who loves you most describe you in ten words or less? Well, I cheated and asked him and this is what he had to say: “A smart beautiful successfully talented mother that I love completely”

5. Any regrets in life? Not really, I think everything in my life has happened for a reason and has made me a stronger person. Of course, I’d like to change some things, but there aren’t any regrets any more.

6. Favorite charity/cause: Well, the one I donate to most is the Susan B Komen Breast Cancer foundation. I have a lot of friends affected by this in some way or another.

7. Favorite Blog: Can you have a favorite blog? I’m not really sure…

8. Something you can’t get enough of? Kisses from Karys – seriously, I could kiss her all day if she would let me. And don’t think I don’t try! Those sweet cheeks…. :)

9. Worst job you ever had? When I worked for the Temp Agency – I never wanted to work and never took the jobs. Not a good idea.

10. What job would you pay NOT to have? Collecting Garbage – I’m way too sensitive to smells!

11. If you could be a fly on the wall anywhere, where would it be? Is it lame that I really can’t think of anywhere I’d like to be? I think that would be called lazy…

12. Favorite Bible Verse/Quote: 1 Corinthians 13:4 “Love is patient, love is kind…” It was read at our wedding and I have a stone cross with this verse on my wall. I read it weekly.

13. Guilty pleasure: A mouth full of whipped cream. Hey! You! Don’t go thinking dirty things! It’s because it’s low carb and it’s one of the only sweet things I can eat! :)

14. Got any confessions?: I’m currently going back and forth on not one, but two, very big issues. Not fun!

15. If you had $1000 to spend on YOURSELF, what would you spend it on? Shoes, but of course! What a silly question :)

16. Favorite thing about your house? The backyard – it’s our oasis

17. Least favorite thing: Wish we had a bit more space

18. One thing you are bad at: my face giving away my emotions – especially when I’m disgusted at something. Tim tells me that is rude. Oops!

19. If you could change one thing about your current circumstances what would it be? That we had planned ahead a little better

20. Who would you like to meet someday? My future kids – hopefully there will be 2 more of them 😉

21. What makes you feel sexy? When I catch my hubby checking me out and he doesn’t know I’m looking. And when I’m tan. It hides a lot of imperfections :)

22. Who is your real life hero? My momma….she’s given up a lot for me and my sisters in so many ways. A lot of it that I will probably never even realize. Her whole life was and still is dedicated to us. I love you, Mom!

23. What is the hardest part of your job? Waking up early. 4:44 am is just not right. Not right at all.

24. When are you most relaxed? When I am near an ocean – it calms me.

25. What stresses you out? When things are out of place….there’s that OCD thing again.

26. What can you NOT live without? My family and my lipgloss (I know, I know!)

27. Do you agree or disagree with the recent article that reported that blogs are authored by narcissists? Disagree

28. Why do you blog? I don’t have enough time to keep a journal like I used to and want to remember everything. I also love the friends I continue to make.

29. Who are you tagging? Krystyn, Rachel and Stephanie


  1. Thanks for playing! Now, I don’t feel so bad about my messy purse. Thanks for not cheating! And hey, you have a wallet just for gift cards? I want one!!!

    And carrying a broken hair clip? That’s about as bad as being 20 weeks preggo and carrying 4 tampons!

    I’ll play along with meme#2 in a bit!

  2. Great answers!
    And I love that you carry a tape measure in your purse. That is too funny!

  3. Wowzers, I LOVE your backyard!!!!!

  4. So, next time I’m in town, I’m so coming over to your house. Your backyard is stunning. And, 4:44? Is that a time? For real?

  5. I love meme’s! I think they are such a great way to get to know people!

    Love the backyard pics!!

    Super jealous, as literally no one has a pool in our town. Too much mountain I guess! Sigh!

  6. Pool party at your house!

  7. gatta love the memes!

  8. A hi-lighter? I’m just trying to figure out what situation you would find yourself in where you would need a hi-lighter. I hope all those pens don’t leak in your new coach bag when you win the bet!

  9. Super answers….. still can not get over how awesome your pool is. 😉

  10. I want to swim in your pool. RIGHT. NOW.

    Oh it looks heavenly!!

  11. Love the meme.
    I learned so much about you in those answers.
    Good stuff.
    Seething with jealousy over the pool.
    Fab. U. Lous!

  12. Holy cow! Now THAT is some pool! I love it! You are very VERY lucky…

  13. What a beautiful oasis, I am oh so jealous.

  14. Hey yeah, so I’m wondering if I could get an application to fill in for your BFF when she’s not available. All I require is a lounge chair near the pool and that your husband serves us margaritas as we discuss important happenings in reality television whilst reading US Weekly. That’s all…

  15. Thats your backyard? Oh gosh i really hate you now, i mean serisouly you should come and see mine…. oh wait we don’t even have one :)

  16. Wow! If that was my backyard, I would never leave it!! Too bad there aren’t jobs to pay you for staying out there all the time!

  17. I would NEVER leave my house if I had that backyard. Ever. Beautiful!!

    Your purse? Looks very much like mine. Replace the tape measure with a screw driver and it’s the same :)

    Love you!
