Thank you and ABC's

Hello!  Thanks Ronnie for the shout out and thank you to my new followers!  I am excited be a part of the such a great group!  By the way, Tina pointed out that I don't have a "Follow Me" button.  Can someone tell me how to get one of those?

I know I am late to the party, but I thought I's do the ABC's of me survey.  BYOC and surveys are great to get your blogger mojo goin'!

(A) Age: 27
(B) Bed Size: Queen
(C) Chore You Hate: Dishes!  Emptying and loading equally suck!
(D) Dogs? I love my doggie - Harley the Lab ( I should be honest, I hated her until my son was born.  I fell in love with her when I saw how this destructive nuisance could be so sweet, loving, and patient with my baby)
(E) Essential Start Your Day Item: It used to be a Diet Coke, post surgery it is Fuze Pomegranite Acai Berry or Decaf Coffee
(F) Favorite Color: Red
(G) Gold or Silver? Silver

(H) Height: 5'2"

(I) Instruments You Play: I poorly played the clarinet in middle school.  I doubt I have retained it though.

(P) Pet Peeve: Liars and self-absorbed people
(Q) Quote from a Movie: Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Christmas. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny fucking Kaye. And when Santa squeezes his fat white ass down that chimney tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse.
(R) Right or Left Handed? Right

(W) What Makes You Run Late: Long nights with the baby
(X) X-Rays You've Had Done: Kidneys and Teeth

(Y) Yummy Food You Make: Chicken Fajitas and WLS Chicken Nuggets (baked breast marinated in greek yogurt and breaded in Panko crumbs, yum!)
(Z) Zoo, Favorite Animal: Bears (P.S. the Monkeys creep me out and I won't even walk past the snakes!)


  1. You do have a follow button, it's just at the bottom, next to the pictures of your son. If I were you, I'd go into Design mode and move it up in your lefthand column under the from my rack to yours picture.

    And you're most welcome! I'm surprised how many people have shown up, I didn't know that many people even read my blogs! :D

  2. There is also a blogger follow link at the top of your page. I clicked it to follow you. It is usually there for anyone who also uses blogger.:)

    I hate snakes too. I walk in a wide circle around the one at the mall. hubby laughs at me all the time.
