It’s Friday so that means it’s BYOC day – Bring Your Own Crazy….to questions we all answer in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blog brains a break! Copy and paste to your own blog and ENJOY!

1. If you were asked to symbolize yourself as an animal – which animal would you be?

I would be a peacock. Now before you laugh let me explain. I like to walk around, being pretty and strutting my stuff. Then before you know it "BAM" my feathers open up like a surprise and show you my real colours. I'm not just a pretty face. I have an attitude when need be, and I can throw down just like the don't mess with me!
What the F**K did you say to me???
2. Did you ever play an organized sport – with coaches, rules and scoring? Tell us about it.

I was a baseball player, and I was actually really good. I played on an All Star team as well. It was my passion from ages 10-17....then clothes, shoes and penises got in the way. 
I then met my hubby and the rest is history. I miss it dearly, I'm not gonna lie. I have played it once in the last couple of years. One of the things I am looking forward to on this weight loss adventure is playing sports again. Maybe I will join a bar league or something just for shits and giggles.
That's me...the one standing on the far right (with the bad perm)
3. When did you start shaving your legs?

I believe I was around 11 or 12. That's when you start to get more self conscious about yourself (and start noticing boys more) I was a tomboy, but yet feminine at the same time. I used my fathers razor one day when I took a shower. I was so proud of myself but when I told my mom what I did, she lost it. I got the whole "WHY DID YOU DO THAT? NOW IT'S GOING TO GROW BACK THICKER AND DARKER AND YOUR GOING TO HAVE TO SHAVE THEM FROM NOW ON." She also promised not to tell my father that I used his razor cause I probably would have got beat for

4. When you’re in a crabby – pissy – want to stab everyone you see kind of mood – what do you do to get out of it or do you revel in it?

This question is a tough one because you guys are gonna think I'm a total bitch. When I am in a pissy mood, that's with it or stay out of my way. I usually will be like that for the rest of the day and it takes me to sleep it off to go away. I don't go looking for something to make me happy or take my mind off of it. I try not to be miserable too much now-a-days though....I'm trying to be more positive especially now during my lifestyle change (which can sure make a person miserable)

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blogland and in real life.

Blogland has been better. I have found a few new sites, and I also gained 6 followers...yayyyy me.
I am still working on my food blog Bonnie's Bites and posted a cold pasta salad recipe that I love!
I also joined a weight loss challenge called Back to Basics that I am hoping puts me into a new groove. I wrote a post about it here.

Real Life hasn't been too exciting. Except that I stepped on the scale this morning and it said 239.....DID YOU HEAR WHAT I SAID!!!!.....yes people I have finally made it into the 230's even if I just squeaked by. Now my official weigh in is on Sunday morning for the challenge so I am hoping it stays around there. Last week my weigh in was 248 so I think I kicked some ass this week. My lowest weight was 2 weeks ago at exactly 240. Hey at least it back heading in the right direction!

Have a great weekend people....I work tomorrow & have a baby shower on Sunday, so here's hoping to find some time to blog!!!


  1. AWESOME loss AND love love love the peacock...totally you. xoxo

  2. Clothes, shoes and penises always get in the way! hahaha

    Hooray for 239. How did you lose so much in a week? You're awesome!

  3. The really lovely and colorful peacocks are males! My grandfather has a peacock farm, and the peahens are all boring browns and tans. Not fair!

    And holy crap! What a great weigh-in! Some weeks, it all just comes together and melts off - an awesome reward for tons of hard work!

  4. Dude that bird face is scary. Do you think Lion & Peacock could co-habitate. Bitch you know we would make such a kick ass team!

  5. Oh dear, a peacock... You know what else isnt just a pretty face and loves to strut about? Turkeys. Man, they're frightening when they're angry. And lions! Be a lion instead--way prettier, way more... err, what's a synonym for fierce?

  6. Shaving legs? Oh I had to beeeeeeee....13? I pressed way too hard with the blade. Took a whole layer of skin off. In the commercials when a lady is shaving her legs it looks like she's pressing very firmly, and so that's what happens when your mom doesn't tell you how to do anything. I was thinking, why the hell would anyone do this?? It hurts!

  7. Hi! I think we would/should totally be friends. Anyway, your answers were awesome, and CONGRATS on the 239!! I love when I get that 9 at the end cause then I try to say "I will NEVER be in that 1 pound higher group again!" Did that make sense?

    So, just wanted to make sure you see I am now an official follower. and an email follower. for good measure. ;)
