If were going to be bff...

I was so inspired by Ashley over at Little Miss Momma's candid approach to blogging and most recent post "Things you should know about me if we are going to be bff..." that I thought I'd come up with a little list of my own!

I am an only child. 

Sometimes when eating and talking I wave my fork in the air. Not like "look at me here I am" but sort of straight up and back and forth like tapping, my elbow is usually resting on the table. It makes the hubby crazy!

I love animals....sometimes more than people

I hate folding laundry, doing laundry, putting laundry away. Anything laundry irritates me....

I use ... way too much! haha

I am addicted to blogs and facebook. Seriously addicted.

I LOVE to create but it's hard for me to focus when the house is messy.

I get really anxious when there are lots of people around. Especially with the babes. I hold their hands and wrap my fingers around their wrists. I am really scared someone will try to steal them. Have been since they were born...

I've been pregnant 5 times. I have 2 children. 3 miscarriages. I dont know if I'll ever try to be pregnant again. It might literally break my heart in two if I loose another one. 

I rarely drink. I'd rather waste my calories on dessert!

I was never really a "teenager". I graduated at high school when I was 16 and started college immediately after...still don't have a degree. Maybe I'll work on that this year. 

I had Hailey when I was 20. My Mom had me when she was 20. Kinda funny :)

I get my feelings hurt easily, but am hard to offend. Does that make sense?!

I would much rather give than receive.  Seriously.

I let the babes wash my feet during bath time. It's relaxing

I think Bailey (our first born {dog}) must be a human reincarnated. She has way too many human characteristics! 

I am a perfectionist

I love making lists. I love finished lists even more. 

Clutter makes me crazy. So I put it in the office or the bedroom and close the door, to take care of when I "have time". It's still there and making me crazy!

I failed my first written drivers test. Something about pedestrians not in this day it is sort of the running joke. "your not in a cross walk I don't have to stop for you..." haha I wouldn't actually hit you!

I love and adore my husband. But sometimes don't show it. I'm really trying to work on this.

When 7pm rolls around {bedtime} I have usually lost all patience and am ready to sit and veg I mean all out vegging TV, computer, and some form of dessert!

A little more about the above. I wait to eat dessert until after the babes go to bed so I don't have to share

So what do I need to know about you if we are going to be bloggy bff's?

Just in case you missed it here is a link back to the original post. Ashley has quickly shot to the top of my "check blog list". BECAUSE she is so candid. It is so refreshing to know there are other SAHM out there who often struggle with the same things. Not everything is peachy. Sometimes I get really frustrated and irritated and wonder if I am really giving my children the best they deserve. I wonder if I'm doing enough, instilling enough, teaching them enough, playing with them enough. To know we are all in the same boat is a really incredible feeling. We'll all sink together! haha j/k We'll all survive together is more like it!

Love and Hugs, 

PS. I dont hate comments or fact they usually make my day!

those last 2 sound exactly like me!!!
i have 6 little ones so one bite each = none for me. ha ha
I sometimes stay up later than I should because I'm just enjoying the quiet and vegging!
my favorite thing about my husband taking the kids out is that i don't have to sneak around to get a snack. :)

I'm a lister too! In fact I have a list of lists that I have going. And a whole notebook dedicated to lists. It's horrible! My husband thinks I'm nuts. :)

Melissa said...

Love your list! I hear you about the 7pm bedtime, I am in complete veg out mode. It's nice to find other SAHM in the blogging world. :)

Taylor @ The Undomestic Momma said...

love this!

Heidi Ferguson said...

I am totally going to do this...just trying to work up the courage to be as candid as Ashley...I love her too. I think pretty much all SAHMs do the last two items! I know I totally do.
