Little Miss Momma: Things You Should Know About Me If We Are Going to Be BFF

Things You Should Know About Me If We Are Going to Be BFF

Things you should know about me
if we are going to be BFF:
I am only 4'11 tall. {I'm a pipsqueak}.

I pee in front of my hubby.

When I was a kid, nothing seemed more exciting than bagging my own groceries {not so much today}.

Sometimes I eat food residue {i.e. goldfish crackers} from Baby W's face because its quicker than walking to the trash can to throw it away.

Beauty secrets: Crest white strips, lip gloss and dirty hair.

I am an only child.
I have never made pancakes.

I leave a fork in my leftovers in the fridge so that I can sneak bites throughout the day {and sometimes middle of the night}.

I always have at least 4 or more loads of laundry waiting to be washed.

I went to the same college as the Pioneer Woman, which pretty much means I am destined to be a world famous blogger one day {lol}.

I have hair extensions {they make my hair thicker, not longer}.

I have no idea how to fold a fitted sheet.

My dryer doubles as my iron.

Vacuum lines on the carpet make me happy.

I don't like bacon.

I didn't get my driver's license until I was 21.

I LOVE Country Crock
{my hubby calls is Peasant Butter and refuses to eat it}

Speaking of the hubby, when I first saw him it was love at first sight {for me}. It took him over a year to realize I was the one--psshhh.

Hmmm, I know I'll come up with more as soon as I click "publish"...

What about you?
As your bloggy bff, what do I need to know?

On another note...
One of my most favorite readers, SAHM, {she always leaves the most fabulous comments}, sent me a link to the following quote:
I am just a regular girl.
A wife who loves her husband, but doesn’t always show it.
A mom who adores her babies, but runs out of patience.
A friend who cherishes her girls, but forgets to return calls.
A person so energized by being creative, but not without dry spells.
I am a homemaker who would rather rearrange furniture than dust it, repaint a bathroom than clean it, eat out than sit down and plan meals.
{Written by Emily}

When I read it, I thought,
"she could have been writing about me".
And I bet I'm not the only one...

I'm 25 and don't have my license (yet!)

I usually have 5 (or more) loads of laundry always waiting to be washed.

I really hate my teeth. They are just too crooked.

I sometimes preach about healthy eating but am having incredibly trouble doing it lately.

I HATE 3D movies.

I have incredible style but I never show it. I'm generally always in t shirt & jeans.

I have some sort of anxiety ocd. I triple check my locks, clear anything away from plugs & it takes me 2 hours to fall asleep because I jump at the tiniest noise.

Btw, why does your husband call Country Crock peasant butter? I don't get it lol. I LOOVE Country Crock but to me butter tastes like butter so I generally get Bluebonnet kind because its the cheapest. Is it called bluebonnet? I don't even know! Vacuum lines make me happy as well. Especially when doubled with carpet powder for that fresh scent!

**oops incredible not incredibly.

That's another thing. I make way too many mistakes (grammatically) when typing online but make not one error when writing on paper.

Hubs says it's because I type faster than I think.

You are so cute! :)

I know a lot of girls that are 4'11"... It's an adorable height to be, in my opinion :)

I love lists like this!!!!

Now that I know you don't like bacon, we'll never be able to be BFF's. Ha!

Where to start, where to start...

I hide chocolate.

I too pee in front of my husband, and I do it because it annoys him :D

I shave my armpits religiously, but go a ridiculously long time w/o shaving my legs.

I HATE cooking, but can come up with any excuse to bake.

I want a boob job, eventhough I used to think it was insane to do so. That was pre-baby, pre-pancake boobie :)

I sometimes have to talk myself out of ramming the nasty lady infront of me at the grocery store with my cart.

I for some reason can't drive when my husband is in the car with me.

I'll eat a cookie before heading to the gym thinking it doesn't count. And then tell my husband I can't understand why I'm not losing weight. Stupid cookie!

I'm going to have to put one of these on my blog too! But here's mine:

I am 4'10, so I'm pipsqueekier then you :)

I probably spend $100 a month on make-up, and only use 10% of it... I'm an addict

I am 25 and still don't have my license, I'm scared to drive

I never clean up the clutter in my house unless people are coming over (we clean things like the kitchen and dirty stuff, but we don't really put anything away)

I can't pass a homeless person or a person with one of those salvation army buckets (or playing music, selling stuff) without giving them something, my husband, the cynic hates it... if I don't I feel sad inside.

At December 20, 2010 at 6:06 AM , Blogger sara said...

Good list! Let's see:

I'm habitually late even though I make every effort not to be, I have no idea how it always happens.

My hair has been about every color in the book. I mean, blue, purple, red. But I stopped coloring it right before my wedding in preparation for all the babies I was going to have. Ppssstt.

In my head, I'm totally younger than I actually am. I think it helps that other people think I look younger.

Even if I'm just running into the potty for a quick tinkle (which I will totally do in front of Husband) I feel compelled to read something while I'm there.

I could do this all day...

At December 20, 2010 at 6:08 AM , Blogger Brooke Anna said...

Well here goes!

I DON'T pee in front of B- and trust me, growing up for some reason my family members had an "open door policy." Still not sure why...

I don't poot in front of B either. Again, growing up my family was very open about that.

It took me two tries to pass my driving test. I missed the first by one point.... (insert insult to the DMV lady here)

When I was little I would ride beneath the buggy, and kinda get disappointed that my kids don't get to since grocery cart depth has doubled in size and leaves no room beneath.

I hate my complexion and have since I turned 13. I had an allergic reation to sample makeup, and my face has had cystic acne since. Boo!

I'm only 5'2 but sometimes say I'm 5'3, It depends on if I need that "boost" for the day."

Beatuy secret: In all honesty my Nuderma has me try this in October and it works. Dilute a cap full of Lysol concentrate (brown bottle) with 12-16 oz hot water, dip a cloth in it and apply two-three times a day to "dry out" my cystic acne. I'm sure it would work w/ a monster zit (eww...I know) or pimple.

When I was young I wanted so badle to be an only child. Now, I would change my big brother for a million bucks. Even more so now that I have two children and see how they interact.

I always have at least 4 or more loads of laundry to be washed. And when I do wash them, I don't want to fold them. So I use my little girls room to "store" laundry baskets full.

I can mate socks as fast as a Nascar Driver but loath folding clothes. I can however half-butt fold a fitted sheet.
Though, I'm not near as good as Martha Stewart on that one!

I hate washing dishes and trust me they pile up. But when I begin I can't stop because I know it would be a waste of the time I spent washing what did get done. I always feel better afterwards anyway.

Since coming out with your secret, and allowing so many of us to do so, I admire your tremendously. Not in a stalker kind of way... I pinky-promise :) Bahaha!

I never paid enough attention to how to iron, sew, or cook lots of things. Now that I'm a SAHM I regret that.

I don't like steak- very much. I was raised on poor man's meats and still love me some chicken and pork to this day... yes I do love me some bacon. I only but it now when it's on sale or I can comp it.

I love country crock on anything to. I try to stock up on butter when Aldi has it for 1.49 and I comp it at Wal-Mart though.

I know I need to loos about 40 more lbs. I just can't keep the motivation to do so :/ I've lost almost 40 now.

When I first met B, we didn't talk much. He was and still is shy. I dated some other POCrap until I was a Senior. First day of Senior year I vowed to make B talk to me by the time we walked the stage at graduation. 5 years, one miscarriage, and two beautiful children later. I'm glad I wrote him a note the first day of our senior year in English 4.

I also know I need to pay attention to how I spell too. I type so fast and have to shhhsh and "stop!" my kids so often I don't always proofread what I type.

LOVE this Ashley! :) I hate driving in the rain! I'd rather stay home all day then drive when it is raining. It TERRIFIES me. :(

I can't stand wrinkly sheets and will get out of bed in the middle of the night to staighten them out so I can go back to sleep. My poor dear husband accepted this early on and puts up with it. :)

I tend to get obsessed with things and go crazy with them for a little while (i.e. blogging, crocheting, quilting, etc.)

Started my own blog but was too shy to really "launch" it, so I only have 5 followers!

When I met my husband in college I was determined that he and I would just be friends. His persistence paid off!

I live in a city and cannot wait to move "back home" even though that may be 5-10 years from now.

I'm obsessed with plucking my eyebrows (I check them daily), counting my steps, keeping my daughter's nose clear, and wiping my new granite counter tops.

Compared to you, I'm tall at 5'1", yay! Good thing I married a guy who was only 6 inches taller than me!

My husband passed my rule of being at least 6 inches taller than me. Before him I dated guys that were 6'1" to 6'7" (yep, 1.5 feet taller than me!)

Oh yeah, I manage to get my laundry washed, but I usually have 4-5 loads that need to be folded. To make me and hubby fold them, I pile it up on our bed. At night, we just pile it on my dresser. I need a new method!

At December 20, 2010 at 7:09 AM , Blogger Jennifer said...

I pee in front of the hubby too.
I eat raw cookie dough.
In the past 5 months I have only taken 1 shower by myself, meaning without my kids or hubby standing around in the bathroom to suck up all of my me time.
I actually like instant Mac n' Cheese.
I eat the remnants of food left on my toddlers face too.
I have to do loads of laundry every other day because my 5 month old spits up way too much.
If I am around food I will get a stain on my shirt. Even if I am not the one eating. Some kind of curse.
My husband and I were best friends for almost 3 years before marrying, but we only dated for 1 1/2 months before getting engaged, and we were only engaged for 1 1/2 months before getting married.
I hate cleaning toilets, floors, and dusting.
I have super curly hair but straighten it because I think it makes me look somewhat pretty.
Weight has always been an issue for me, I hate dieting though. Love exercising but find it very hard to actually find the time to do it.

At December 20, 2010 at 7:25 AM , Blogger aliimberi said...

I am a SAHM of 3 wild and crazy kids!

I am addicted to Altoid smalls.

I always have the laundry caught up but it stays in the baskets for weeks bc I hate putting it away!

I refuse to wash dishes by hand.

I would love to lose 10lbs to be where I was when I got married and instead of exercising, I sit on the computer reading blogs and looking up weight loss ideas. LOL

I never get time to myself, there is always someone in the bathroom when I am and always someone at my feet. (Usually my 9 month old)

I have been married for almost two years.
I also pee in front of my hubby.
I hate, hate, hate, cheese!
I dislike animal movies/shows.
My tummy is really weak, I gag/throw up from everything I swear, its not fun.
I love to bake and cook and plan out menus (probably cause I don't have picky kids... YET)
Everytime I use my glue gun I get a blister.
I am a master at the game CLUE.

Great idea!

I too am like April with the homeless person and cynical hubby.....

I have 2 kids, 3yrs and 1 yr.

I don't want to have anymore children and almost everyone I know thinks I should have more.

I loathe loathe loathe my "buddha baby belly" so much that I really want to get a tummy tuck if my running and working out regiment does not pay off in a year.

My hubby has the only child syndrome.

I totally pee in front of him...and I pee in the shower! Ha...too much?

I call "boogers"....schnoogers bc the word boogers grosses me out. My kids now call it that too.

I want to skydive soooo badly.

I am always striving to do more and forget what is on my list.

I will fulfill my 2011 resolutions....

I love your blog and so glad you are brave enough to put stuff like this out there!!! :)

I love this post!

I also have no Idea how to fold those fitted sheets!! i just kinda bunch them in a ball...

Im addicted to those Dark chocolates by dove..and sometimes hide them so Im the only one who knows where they are...

I didn't get my drivers till I was 20 and I already had my first baby

I hate talking on the phone..i would much rather just txt {does that make me rude?}

I love shopping! online, or by myself to lots of stores! and I love just looking I don't even have to buy anything!

when Husband is Home I make him do the driving..

I soo want a boob job, and a tummy tuck! after having two babies im all for those mommy surgeries..maybe someday...

I got more excited then my 2 1/2 year old to see Santa!

At December 20, 2010 at 8:13 AM , Blogger Jennifer said...

How fun! I love this post =) I might have to do one on my blog this week b/c i'm getting exhausted from playing with recipes every day!

I also cannot fold a fitted sheet... it makes me feel worthless to even fold sheets. i leave them in piles for the hubby to help with.. and wind up crumpling them in balls inside the linen closet! oops. yah i suck =)

Hmmmm... so about me.

I grow goofier by the second. FACT.
I am jobless at the moment, and adore it.
Blogging has been my crack/therapy since August 2010.
I love cooking. HATE baking.
I can't survive without liquid liner.
I'm supposed to be cleaning the kitchen right now. hehe

We have quite a few things in common:

I'm only 5' even though sometimes I claim I'm 5'1"

I'm my Mama's only child (so it was like being an only child)

trying to fold fitted sheets drives me crazy ...

I don't iron - unless it is for sewing haha

What a fun little event!

Okay, so I am 28 and still feel 21.

I got my license the day I turned 16.

I have two English degree (BA/MA), graduating with my BA in less than three years from start to finish.

I have laundry in all stages, at all times. Putting it away is the worst. Is there a service for this?

As a mommy/wife I feel like I do everything, but also like nothing is ever done. This causes me to wonder if I actually do anything. I figure this most just be a common mommydom complex.

I am incredibly picky, yet understand that it is my problem so I do not send food back or complain. I just take care of it by removing the things i do not like.

I absolutely adore my husband and children. It is wonderful to be the only woman in a house full of boys. I can't imagine anything different. They are crazy and keep me on my toes at all moments (eg son just soaped up the counter sink as I typed this).

Blogging has changed my life, and it has only been about 2 months. I have found so many great women and ideas. Participated in a community that is uplifting. Learned how to flaunt what I got to create great things on a budget. Thank you to all the women out there!!!

I have two poodles who I love, but annoy me too.

I am the youngest child with the responsibilities of the oldest.

Beauty Secret: Also dirty hair, and a just go with it attitude. I think that many women could be blessed by learning to just do a little in a short amount of time.

Thanks for everything!!

P.S. I have a magazine article on how to fold the fitted sheet. I will look for it and then send you the directions.

At December 20, 2010 at 9:01 AM , Blogger Nerd Mama said...

I'm new here but I love the honesty of your blog!

I'm 5'5", but I feel tall around hubby's family. He's an inch shorter than me and very few of his family members are taller!

I love a clean house but I hate cleaning.

I've kind of got some OCD problems but I think I've got a handle on them for now. This will probably change again soon.

When my husband isn't home I sometimes let my daughter play with things she's not supposed to, like the Xbox controller.

I definitely pee in front of my husband. He's okay with this but still took a while to pee in front of me!

I LOVE bacon, but I'll forgive you your indiscretions.

I've got about a million allergies. Some months of the year I can hardly go outside, and there are lots of things I can't eat.

I usually get the laundry washed but it often isn't folded.

I definitely play too many facebook games.

With the aforementioned OCD I really like sorting and counting things, but I still manage to be one of the least organized people I know.

I am an unabashed nerd. I like video games (even though I am very bad at them), Star Wars, anime, D&D, comic books, Lord of the Rings, and just about anything with dragons. I am not afraid to make nerd references in front of non-nerds. I can take credit for turning several of my friends into nerds. It's a huge part of my life and I love it.

My husband and I have a strange romantic history. It was kind of love at first sight, then we hated each other for a couple of years, then we became friends and fell in love all over again.

I was an only child for twenty years of my life, until my parents adopted an eleven year old boy. I love my now-teenage brother so much and I thank God for him all the time!

I can't decide how many kids I want. Some days I want just one more, other days I want a house full. Though honestly if a second child turns out as strong willed as my daughter, they'll keep the house filled up.

I don't have any beauty secrets because I don't wear makeup, rarely pluck my eyebrows, and have worn jewelry only a handful of times since I gave birth.

I own five pairs of Converse high tops in a rainbow of colors and sometimes I like to wear two different colors at once.

I go barefoot as often as possible.

I drink too much coffee, but I'm not addicted to caffeine. I know no one believes me, but I just really like the taste of coffee. Decaf makes me sick- it's treated with chemicals.

I could put a million more... I'm a complex person! Or maybe I'm just vain.

Hi :) I can help you with the fitted sheet thing : go to this site (it's a blogpost, but not from my blog) and watch the video. It's in brazilian portuguese, but I think you can understand how the woman folds it just by seing her :) It's the same way I fold mine, and it makes a much neater pile, which is very important when your clean clothes lay around for weeks before anyone puts them away (like in my house :P)

As soon as I clicked publish, I realized I didn't mention the site (!!!)... That's another thing about me : I always forget something (we have a saying in Portugal that those who eat a lot of cheese are forgetfull, and maybe it's true, because I am a fanatic cheese eater). The site is :

Love this Ashley!

I have been married for exactly 2.5 years and have 2 kids! A 21 month old and a 4 month old.
I've never washed a load of laundry since I met my hubby.
I hate oatmeal, the sight of it makes me want to throw up.
I talk to my mom everyday at least once. We've never missed a day, Ever.
I am saving up for a boob job and tummy tuck.
I also use hair extentions to make my hair thicker.
I hate chocolate.
I look at your blog obessivly to see if something new is up and wish we could be real life BFF's!

At December 20, 2010 at 9:39 AM , Blogger Pedey @ Do You Smell That!!? said...

I'll start off with a few echoes so you all know you're not alone!

I too:

- HATE 3D movies.

- shave my armpits religiously, but go a ridiculously long time w/o shaving my legs.

- am habitually late even though I make every effort not to be, I have no idea how it always happens.

- manage to get my laundry washed, but I usually have 4-5 loads that need to be folded.

- hate, hate, hate, cheese!

- pee in the shower!

And now for mine:

I don't sit still well. Every day I HAVE TO go somewhere. Anywhere. I'll make up excuses to go across town to Target or Costco. It affects my mood & I get crabby if I don't get out of the house - even if it's just me with my 4 little ones.

I married my husband only 7 months after meeting him. We've been married 10 years & have 4 great kids.

I gag on the toothpaste foam every time I go to spit it out after brushing my teeth.

I brush my teeth for about 5 minutes every morning. Seriously - 5 minutes.

I order my steak SUPER WELL done. I tell then to turn it into tanbark or leather. And butterfly it if you need to.

The only make-up I wear is mascara & chapstick.

I love a GIANT Diet Coke first thing in the morning. Or Diet Pepsi. I don't discriminate!

Rubbing fingertips together sends chills up my arms & spine - the kind people get from nails on a chalkboard.

I'm a reality TV junkie.

I usually only shower every other day.

I hate messy play - my poor kids rarely get to play with paints, play-doh, out in the snow or anything that I'll have to clean up after. Toys, video games & LOTS of running around outside. That's what they get!

I, like you, always have about 4 loads of laundry waiting....and I'll add to that...I always have about 4 loads of clean laundry sitting in a heap unfolded.

:) As always...enjoyed your post

At December 20, 2010 at 10:48 AM , Blogger LP said...

This is fabulous and reading y'alls lists makes me smile!!! I want to do one on my blog too :) It's fun to read about each other.

-I'm an only child and the only redhead and left-handed one at that.

-The day I turned 15 I went to get my permit and I passed it on the first try. I even parallel parked on the first try. I'd been practicing since I was 11 (I heart cars).

-I spent 10 years off and on in a two year college to be a nurse. I discovered two things: I'm really, really good at biology and anatomy, but I never really, really wanted to be a nurse. So I have a 2 year degree that consists of almost exclusively biology credits. Oops.

-I'm a Southern girl. I believe it's more than a region, and when you come from 5+ generations of being down here, you can peg an accent from up north down to the state :) *wink*

-I love to blog, but secretly I'm convinced no one is interested in what I have to say. Anyone else worry about this?

-Like a lot of you, I'm religious about shaving my armpits...but my legs? Whatever.

-I'm pregnant with my very first child and nothing scares me more than labor & delivery. Not raising him, feeding him, nothing. Just getting him into the world is my worst fear and concern.

I want to be BFF's!

I'm 5'2" and never leave the house without 3" heels on (even in the winter snow!)

I pee in the shower to save a step in the morning.

I always have atleast 3 baskets of clean laundry waiting to be taken care of.

The only thing my neat-freak mother passed down to me was a greatfulness for gravity. (She would always look at my messy room, then look up to the clean ceiling and Thank God for gravity!)

I fell into a complete depressive pity party for a week when I found out I was eligible for Lasik Surgery, but then found out I couldn't afford it.

I love to work out once I'm doing it, but really, I'd rather sit and eat ice cream and just WATCH the workout video.

Thanks for sharing some tidbits about you! I hope you enjoy these takens-tidbits!

I'm addicted to books... and will be completly crushed if they ever become extint.

I can't eat gives me really bad gas.

I would eat sushi 3/7/365 if I could.

Since chemo I can't eat sweet things. This has come in handy as it's helped me lose almost 100 lbs! (but I really miss chocolate more than anything!)

More than anywhere else I want to visit Japan... not only to see my sister but because I truly love the culture!

When I was 16 I was 5'7 now at 31 I'm measuring at a little over 5'5 (how does that happen?)

I aced English in High school but I can't spell or use correct congunctives (is that the right word?) to save my life!

When I get nervous, I talk before thinking... So if we ever meet you'll have to look past that the first time we talk (laughs)

My BGFF, stopped being my friend because her husband didn't like me. (I have a really hard time being friends with women now, I keep expecting the bomb to drop (that they don't want to be friends anymore))

Besides you, Ree is one of the people I want to meet most in blogland... And I'd do almost anything to cook/bake with her!

Ree made me relize that I actually hate city life (and farm life) and made me wish to live on a acre or two, where I can scream in frustration and no one can hear me (or think badly of my parenting), but close enough that I can get what I need to without the long drives (laughs)

I wish I had the patients to be a homeschooler, (it seems very cool) but I don't, I'm a mom who wishes there was school all year!

I have an addictive personality, I had to shreed my CC's because I spent to much money in stores. now i'm addicted to my RSS feeds, I check them 5-8 times a day! and i'm also addicted to free samples online (it helps me to fight my urges to buy things in stores or online)

I reply to comments because I love the thought that the author reads it. and it makes me feel giddy when they actually reply (actually better than real mail!!)

Aw! Thanks for sharing!! :) Hmm... I'm 5'8"... tallest girl in my class through most of school, tallest person through part of grade school... But now, just average! :)

I'm seriously growing more and more addicted to blogging... Not sure if that's good or bad...

I'm planning my wedding for this summer and I'm feeling a little overwhelmed, but still excited.

So, there you go! Some things about me! :)

take 2 (laughs)

I thought of a couple more things...

I'm pretty hard to gross out but mucus will make me gag every time!

I have a mental block, that makes me sound stupid when I talk on the phone and when ordering through the drive-thru (as a result my order is ALWAYS wrong)

My favorite color is Orange... when I was young it was the same, then it changed to purple, teal, blue, green, but I always come back to orange :)

I have a nervous bladder, I can't pee when other people (not including my kids)are in the bathroom too (it's weird i think they're judging me on my bathroom habits (laughs))... it makes it really difficult when I have to use a public restroom. (those family restrooms really saved me!)

I like to help people, even when they don't really want it (laughs) speaking of that let me know if you ever want me to show you how to fold fitted sheets or make pancakes (laughs)

OK... I'm done now (laughs)

I am 29 and could care less about turning 30. Actually, instead of hating it, I want a really big party.

I lost 45 lbs this year and the thing that makes me angry about it, all the people who tell me now that I can eat whatever I want, even though I still need to lose more weight. (not much, but still some)

My elementary art teacher told me I would be an artist one day...and I consider myself one. Check out my new blog.

I hate ranch dressing, thankfully my kids do too, but hubby loves it.

My favorite color changes daily.

I wish I could hire someone to clean just my bathrooms. That would be my idea of heaven.

I am horrible at singing, but do it all the time anyways.

Hurray. I don't like Bacon either! In the Geeky world I live in it's considered a sin. But I can't help it's so gross :P

I am BFF Jaimie from I would be way happy if I had more than just 12 followers lol. So if you would like, follow my awesome blog!

Some things about me…HmMmM…

I also pee in front of my hunnie!

I have no children (we pray that one time it will work)

My mother was an alcoholic for YEARS, and it has taken a HUGE effect on me.

I am manic depressive (HATE THAT)

I drive a Kia Soul and I L-OVE it!

I have a GIANT family! Which consists of my Mom, my Dad, my step-Mom, my step-Dad, older brother Zach, younger brother Conner, half brother Lance, half brother Talon, half sister India, half sister Mandi, step-sister Morgan, step-brother Adam, step brother Brian, Sister-in-law Mindy (married to Zach), step-brother-in-law Alex (married to Morgan) and my husband’s sister Brittney!! HAHAHA CONFUSING!!

I was in an abusive relationship when I was 17

I had a really bad past which consisted of prescription drug abuse, huffing air-duster, smoking a lot of marijuana, drinking a lot of alcohol, crushing and snorting pills.

I am 100% clean today (although sometimes I crave, but find the strength to ignore it)

My husband and I are working on getting sealed in the SLC Temple on our Anniversary (May 31st!)

I belch..a lot!

I bite my fingernails.

I make jewelry and home décor.

I am ADDICTED to Dr. Pepper.

I take THE most random pictures and save them for a good laugh later.

I hate Vegetables and Fruits, (Except peaches, and green beans)

I am probably the pickiest eater known to mankind.

I have a Great Dane named Titan.

I took 1st place in state for power tumbling when I was 12.

I have a really good arm and can throw faster than most guys.

I can’t stand zits…so any chance I get I scan my face, neck, and shoulders, if I find one, I will get it lol.

My right foot is bigger than my left by about a half of an inch.

I haven’t shaved my legs in a LONG I get these really weird sores that ARE NOT razor burn…it’s weird and they itch SOO bad.

I have eczema on the backs of my knees, and the insides of my arms. When I get tan, those spots don’t tan so I look like a weirdo.

I’ve pierced my own nose.

When I got my wisdom teeth out, I could feel everything and they didn’t believe me.

Sometimes I crave cigarettes and I have no clue why.

I used to be able to run a mile in 6:22 (I remember because it was my 7th grade locker number)

I am a freak with remembering things.

When I was 14-16, being chased by the cops was a regular occurrence.

When my husband is in the car, its like I can’t drive for some reason.

I LOOOOVEEE doing makeup!

I went to and graduated from hair school, and don’t care to pursue a career in it. I am thankful that I learned what I did though, because people ask me every day how to do my hair. I’ve been thinking about doing some video tutorials on doing different hair styles…But I am scared..

^ I am scared to do anything because I am so self conscious. I have gained about 80 pounds in the last 2 years. I am really disgusted with my self and can’t even look at my body without mentally throwing up. I don’t like to go anywhere because I am afraid to let people see me. When I do go places, and people are snapping pictures left and right I try my best to stay out. If they do get a picture of me, and put it on FaceBook, and tag me, I immediately remove the tag so nobody will know what I have done to myself. I used to be cute and skinny and I have had a lot of problems with my health and depression, but I am ashamed of what I have done to myself.

I am going on like my 30th diet come January, but this time, it will be different, because I WILL succeed! You can follow my weight loss journey over at

That was a long list! Hahah!

Well since you know all this stuff now, we are now BFFS! :)

-Love your BFF Jaimie

-I only like to cook from scratch but hate to clean up my BIG messes and don't have time to cook like I want to most of the time
-I have two kids (5 and 6 months)
-I had infertility issues with #2 and am scared I won't be able to have more kids (but am very grateful for the two I have)
-I always have room for dessert
-I love my girlfriends and date night
-I love being creative (it keeps me from going crazy)

First of all LOVE your blog!

This quote ROCKS!!!

I am 33, 5'8" ish? and weigh more than I want to think about.

I love reading blogs, bookmarking projects I don't have time to do because I am too busy reading more blogs. lol

I don't pee in front of anyone (except my kids they don't count) in fact I can't even pee if I think someone can hear me.

I am super lazy when it comes to doing my hair, pony-tail queen.

I don't wear make-up because I think I look like my 3 year old put it on me.

I have never made pancakes (unless the mircowavable ones count).

My kids aren't picky eaters and I still make the same five or six things because I hate to cook.

I am happy if my carpet is vaccumed (don't care much about the lines).

I own enough scrapbooking and crafting supplies for a small country.

I love lists!!!

At December 20, 2010 at 3:02 PM , Blogger Ashley said...

Let me see...

I wash my hair ONLY twice a week (if that)

I buy a carmello candy bar every time I go grocery shopping (for myself)

If I ever receive gift cards or money for holidays and birthdays, it's ALWAYS spent on my kids.

I let all my fingernails grow, but continously bite my thumb nails (stupid, I know)

I made a batch of 36 cookies one day and I ate 30 (seriously)

I have six tattoos and my lip is pierced

I use to be on a swimming team and won first place everytime I did the backstroke and freestyle, but nearly drowned when I did the breaststroke.

I wish I could home-school my kids because I am SO protective over them

I love red meat and eat it as rare as possible, I love the taste (what a weirdo)

I wish I could eat a complete meal and actually finish before one of the babes or the hubby needs me to do something....for the fifith time

I would really like to go to the bathroom by myself one day....

I am still nursing my 20 month old baby :)

Happy holidays bff!! Xoxoxo ~Ashley

At December 20, 2010 at 3:39 PM , Blogger This Young Mama said...

Hello??? Are we the same person!?!

I'm 5'0 and I'm so PROUD of being short! Before baby I used to rock 5 inch heels like no other :)

I'm 20 and I still dont have my license, I'm really scared of driving.

The first thing that attracted me to my hubby- He was chubby and husky... I feel protected, you should see his legs :)

I went from a size 3 to a size 14 petite, I hate clothes shopping because I HATE knowing that I'm this big.

I like to blame some of my weight gain on my hubby because he LOVES eating JUNK!I have to force him to drink water and eat a salad without a whole bottle of dressing.

I would love to lose weight but I'm ADDICTED to Dr. Pepper, I can't go one day without it!

We lost our first baby at birth but me and my hubby still talk about her like she's still here. Even though I have the most amazing little boy now... I still miss her and think about her everyday.

I want to fix my teeth and I know I would love the results but I don't want to get braces because I don't want to feel ugly.

I became pregnant with my first baby when I was only 16, no one in my family supported me. I like to know I'm mom of the year compared to a lot of them.

I feel like I don't meet my moms expectations of being a good mexican wife... I'm sorry I never will be!

I'm my moms only child and I loved being spoiled as a kid.

I loved high heels and makeup but after I had my kiddo I mostly wear a pj shorts and a tank top (in the house).

I vacumm because It makes me feel like I cleaned even if the rest of the house is a mess.
I too shave my armpits religiously but could care less about my legs.

I am 23 and I enjoy seeing my little cousin of only 8 since she makes everything so brighter and cheerful.

She brings out the kid in me just wish I get to see her more often.

At December 20, 2010 at 4:15 PM , Blogger Jenna said...

I LOVE your blog

I'm obsessed with etsy and can't stop myself from buying things on it.

I used to want 4-6 kids, after having 1, I feel more like 3-4... but I'm too scared to tell the hubby.

I feel like a bad SAHM when my house is messy, but I'd rather play with my baby, blog, and read blogs. SO I don't get as much done as I should.

When I know I'll be in the bathroom for awhile, I bring the computer in with me. ... and I'm doing that right now.

I love my husband more than anything but don't show him enough. I nag too much. He needs to hear more how wonderful I think he is.

I have, "but it's such a good deal," syndrome and spend too much as result.

I'm super happy with my life and am so grateful for all that I have (family, good friends, home, good car, etc).

I'm a mere quarter of an inch away from 6ft tall.

I have enough underwear that I don't have to do laundry for 3 weeks. (And when I'm away at college, I make it last that long so I can do it for free at home.)

I like spam, bologna, vienna sausages, and nearly all forms of processed meat.

Oh, and I'm addicted to your blog.

At December 20, 2010 at 4:47 PM , Blogger Sascha said...

Oh what fun! Can I play too?

Let's see...
I'm addicted to Diet Pepsi (I know all the major fast food chains that serve Pepsi over Coke).

My house is a disaster and I really don't care, but I cannot stand to have the dining chairs not perfectly tucked in the table. I will scoot your chair in for you the minute you step away from the table.

I have so many white t-shirts that I have an entire rack in my closet dedicated to them. In the Winter they go from long sleeve to short and in the Spring I switch them from short sleeve to long (left to right).

I used to have my tongue pierced but I don't have any tattoos.

I go from blond to brunette every couple of years (just went dark yesterday!)

I grew up in the Hollywood Hills not with a lot of money, but it made me a snob, which I didn't realize until I moved away. I like to think I'm reformed.

I have 6 chickens and a duck. I had a rooster and now he's gone. Peace and quiet.

My first child was born blind. It's really not as bad as you think. I'm actually very thankful for the great health of all my children.

Man this is addictive. Thanks for letting me play.

Got my license at 21 too!
Hate bacon.
I hurry and pull stuff out of the dryer, give it a good shake and hang it....good enough.
I thought fitted sheets you just bundle up in a ball?

I hate cooking

I can't sleep with socks on

My husband makes a better housewife than I do

I like peeling dried glue off my fingers

I'm learning how to blog and kind of overwhelmed with it

I'm a senior in college and absolutely hate what I'm studying so I am teaching myself photography

I, LOATHE snow, and I live in the coldest part of North Carolina which gives me seasonal depressive disorder every year.

I secretly hope my daughter hates snow when she gets older so I don't have to go play in it with her...okay im only kidding (kinda), I'm not that bad of a mom

I love Harry Potter

I hate when my husband sings the words to a song before you hear them in the song.

I've been trying to lose the baby weight for 6 months

Sometimes I fear that I am the laziest mom and I'm raising my daughter in all the wrong ways

my daughters boogers drive me crazy, I just want to blow her nose for her!

I could go on all day..

I have a really, really big crush on Justin Timberlake. He gives me *sparkies*.

I hate needles. I've often said I would labor & deliver my children twice if it meant I didn't have to get the blood draws during PG'cy or the IV at delivery.

In spite of my hatred of needles, I am a faithful blood donor. I go every 8 weeks. I just grit my teeth, tightly close my eyes & turn my head away. Thankfully I fill a bag really fast!

I love this list - it will be on my bloggy to-do list!

Oh here's my short version:
- I could never be a SAHM - it's just not in me
- I went to college (Texas Tech) hoping to become an orthodontist, I graduated with a BS in Restaurant/Hotel Mgt
- I slept w/ a New Kids on the Block night gown, until I was 27. I still have it, just in case!
- I am not modest at all!
- I do not like to do laundry, so I pay my maid extra so she'll fold it and hang it for me
- I'm a very picky eater and I feel deprived if I don't eat one fried thing a day. Usually fries.
- My favorite color is green
- I hope I never again have to live outside of TX. I lived in Phx for 6 months and hated it!

That's a good start! I'll have to start jotting random things down, so I can post this on my blog too!

Have a Merry Christmas!

We should be BFFs and here's what you should know:

I love decorating and making my home beautiful but I'll never ever let you in my bathroom because it could be shut down by the health department--and I don't care (I'm the only one that uses it)

Ive gained 30 pounds in the last year and none of my clothes fit

I love getting in bed at 8 on friday, eating cereal and watching What Not to Wear (hmmm, could this be the 30 pounds?!)

I hate the color pink

My mother's perfume makes me sick at my stomach.

I don't have a favorite group or artist because I get bored listening to one person two songs in a row

I have on several occasions, thrown up the entire time i was driving and never got a drop of puke on myself or in the car...I'm sure this makes me an expert of some kind!

Sometimes I feel like I have no one that wants me, loves me or needs me.

I don’t have any best friends or even friends that I would confide in. My “friends” are from High School and we rarely talk. My sister is the only person I can talk to about problems or vent to… she listens to me but doesn’t hear me.

My mom would do anything in the world for me but as she says, she is not my “friend” but my mom… Which is evident when I need someone to talk to or want to tell her something I’m excited about and she changes the subject or has a one word response, “cool”.

Ive been dating the same man for five years and wonder what I have done to make him not want to marry me already….

Im ashamed of my closet… When I do loads of laundry sometimes I get lazy and decide not to fold them and just put the entire un-folded basket in my closet and rummage through it when I need things. Yuk.

I experience anxiety when I go in stores alone or anywhere alone. I feel like people are talking about me or staring at me. Wow, that sounds crazy.

I judge people by the way they look way too often.

I smile at people that look sad or like they are having a bad day. You never know what a simple smile could do for someone.

I tell people I don’t want kids because I don’t think it will ever happen for me. I also don’t think im worthy of kids for the following reason….
Im ashamed to say that I have taken the RU86 (abortion pill)…. twice. I think about it every time I see a baby and wonder what God must think of me. I did it because I was scared, wasn’t married, not even in a serious relationship, the other person didn’t want a child & I was young. Undoubtedly the worst thing I have ever done in my life…

At January 8, 2011 at 8:52 PM , Blogger the little wife said...

Thanks so much for sharing!

I got married 10 days before my 21st birthday.
I'm a snow bunny who loves the beach (but not in the sun bathing kind of way, more like the wind swept cliffs kind of way)
I still love pink best of all, but am terrified that I wear it too much.
It took me two years to convince my husband to ask me out (he still thinks it was his idea ;) ) and then four years to ask him to marry me.
Flowers are the best gift ever.
My fashion style gets more preppy as winter comes, and more bohemian as it warms up.

At January 10, 2011 at 9:11 PM , Blogger Kissy said...

Okay, here it goes...

I am recently a self proclaimed blog addict, with yours being my favorite of course.

It makes me happy to know I am not the only mother/wife out there that stuggles with laundry and washing dishes.

I am afraid of ending up on an episode of TLC's Hoarders or What Not to Wear.

My sisters are best friends...with each other, which sometimes makes me sad.

I love my two boys, but sometimes I wish they would just stay in their room. Does that make me bad mother?

I love to cook and bake IF the kitchen is clean.

I am obsessed with sticky notes. I realized this when one of my kindergarten students brought me a book full of sticky notes that they had applied in an attempt to "play teacher".

I am a perfectionist to the point that I can't get started on something for fear that it won't be done just right.

Okay, I am starting to sound crazy now. lol

I LOVE that quote! That is totally me, too! I think I'm going to have to craft that somewhere in my soon-to-be craft room! Also, LOVE vacuum lines in the carpet, I've done about 4 loads of laundry TODAY and probably still have at least 3 to go! Also eat things on my babies face/what he spit out. Only a mommy could eat such discarded food! Found your blog today, reading backwards and loving it!
