I'd Like to Thank....

When this stuff happens, I feel so cool. It’s a nice change from my usual dull life. The one where I talk to my cats and get butter all over my belly because I accidentally dropped the doused-in-butter-cob-of-corn I was eating while reading blogs. Shameful, I know.

So when Ashley over at ABC: Life from the Start of the Alphabet, tagged me for an award I threw down the corn and decided to participate.

Favorite Color? Green, without a doubt. I have red hair and it’s the only color that agrees with me and my pasty skin tone.

Favorite Restaurant? Texas Roadhouse. I don’t even think their food is that good, but they have those cinnamon buns with honey butter and that’s reason enough for me. Well, serving sweet potatoes isn’t exactly working against them either, but they should serve them in fry form too. Love carbs.

Hobbies? I really like to cook but I don’t know shit about shit so it rarely turns out edible. I had to Google how to cook corn. Lame. I also love bingo and going to rummage sales or Goodwill. Don’t judge, Goodwill is like a year round rummage sale and I like old crap.

What does your room look like? It has furniture and an unmade bed because I had to get up early to meet the guy who was dropping off the damn lawn tractor. The Hubster is hoarding the camera, so no photos. Sorry.

If you could have dinner with two people, dead or alive, who would they be? My Papa (Grandpa for those who call them that) who passed away 5 years ago, he helped my Mom raise me and he was awesome. Even after the time when I was like 6 and locked him in the basement until my Grandma got home because I was a huge brat and wanted to look in all their “cupboards” without getting in trouble. Boy did that backfire on me. Of course, I would drag Jordan along so he could meet my Papa since they have the same sense of humor and they both love me, despite my bull.

What’s your next big splurge? Like I mentioned the other day, the Hubster and I are forkin’ over $40 for a flower hooded towel for the baby. That’s a lot for a damn towel. And we are cheap, cheap bastards.

What is your favorite joke, quote or saying? “That’s terrible” you know, from the Taco Bell commercial promoting the Big Bell NBA Value Box or whatever. Jordan says it in that voice ALL THE TIME, sometimes when it’s not even appropriate, like in front of my Grandma or bank tellers. But that just makes it all the more funny.

8 Things About Me Instead of 10 (Because even 8 were hard to think of)

I used to race in the Soap Box Derby. And I fully intend on making Jillian and any other Fisher babies do it too.

I don’t have any white walls in my house. It’s like a rainbow shat on my house.

I’m scared shitless that I will forget to teach Jillian something about life or that I will coddle her and she’ll be a nancy. It’s a scary thing, being a parent.

Mangoes are my favorite fruit but they’re a bitch to prepare so I rarely eat them.

I have a tattoo on my foot of a bird and I can’t remember what kind of damn bird it is. Embarrassing.

I love to fish and I can fillet one better than any man I know. Booyah!

Grammatical and spelling errors really chap my ass but sometime you have to break the rules when blogging to make any effing sense.

I do not have nice hair. It’s a poofy, frizzy helmet unless I straighten it. I wish I could be one of those girls who just lets it air dry and it looks good.

Okay, so now I’m supposed to tag some other people to get the award but I think you’re all pretty effing fabulous and I think you should all do it too!

Oh I'm so glad you played along! Thank you :) It makes me happy when other people participate in stuff I put on my blog. :)

And sweet potato fries might be nectar of the gods. *just sayin'*

Raquel said...

@Ashley- They are DEFINATELY the nectar of the gods. Mmmm, delicious!

Expressions Paperie said...

ooohhh I have red hair too and my favorite color is green!
My 7 week old son has a tint of red hair (my hubby doesn't like it, but I wanted a Ginger) and he looks awesome in green too!!

Deals, Steals and Heels said...

goodwill = totally awesome. the hubs and i go like once a week!! and i'm not a natural redhead...but i'm convinced i was supposed to be, everyone tells me the dye looks natural. so i'm holding out hope for some twist of fate to give me ginger babies.

Non Sequitur Chica said...

That towel was adorable so the $40 is totally worth it (ha!).

Raquel said...

@Expressions- We're a dying breed..there was even an article about red heads becoming "extinct" like dinosaurs. Awesome. J's B3 has red hair too, he was the cutest baby ever!

@Deals- Lucky! My hubs HATES the Goodwill and I have to wait until he wants something to use going as a bargaining chip. My family AND J's family have red heads so you can have one of our extra children if it doesn't work out that you have one!

@Non- Yeah, the moment I saw it I knew I had to have one. The lady who makes them is soo nice too! I will post a picture of Jillian in it once I a) have her and b) bathe her
