My Lucky Seven...

Pssst...have you entered my blog makeover giveaway? No?! What are you waiting for! Go there. Now. That's all....



The ever wonderful and fabulous Mommyologist wrote a fabulous post about her seven things that truly describe her. And then?

She tagged me! I know most of you are just dying to find out more about me, The Winey Mommy, so guess what?

You? Are in for a treat.

Without further ado, I give you....

My lucky seven--all fabulousness, all me.

{1} When I was in Iraq back in 2004 I had to get stitches. I wish I had some fabulous story about how the stitches came about...but my story? Um, it's so embarrassing. We were getting ready to open the doors for the hospital crew to come eat. I was outside with a group of people. Look at my watch. Saw I was late and took off running. And then? I tripped on some cables. Fell. It was so slow motion and dramatic. My chin? Totally contacted with the concrete. Yuck! I reached up to touch it...blood. Gravel. I was crying and couldn't eat real food for awhile. My jaw is still messed up. I am sooo clumsy!

{2} I'm originally from Springfield, Missouri. I cannot wait to live there again. I love it. To me it's the perfect city. Not too big, not too small. We get all of the seasons. My family lives there. I want my girls to grow up there. It's funny because when I lived there I could not wait to leave. Once I joined the Air Force I realized just how much I loved Missouri! It's funny how you don't realize what you have until it's gone...

{3} I can't just windowshop. If I get ready and leave I want to shop. Spend. Buy. I love the feeling I get when I come home with shopping bags. It's a high...and I love it. My weaknesses would include Ulta/Sephora, Gap, Baby Gap, Target. I know that there are more, but those are the main stores that I shop at down here. I may or may not refer to Target as my lover...

{4} One of my favorite movies is Riding in Cars w/Boys. It's such a good movie! I used to watch it over and over and over again when I was single...it was my go to movie if I needed something to just forget about life and stress in general. Love Drew Barrymore and Brittany Murphy {may she rest in peace}.

{5} I love my wine and margaritas. I know, I know, you already know this. But I had to throw it in. I like my margaritas on the rocks, no salt. Seriously yummy. Mmmm...

{6} I laugh at everything. And I sometimes laugh when noone else laughs...I remember in Turkey we went to the movie theater on base and saw Talladega Nights. I think I laughed at every single part. Especially the cougar in the car. Not many other people laughed...Leo kept telling me to be quiet which made me laugh even harder. Haha! I love being able to laugh!

{7} I'm afraid of the dark. Okay, you can stop laughing at me now, ha! But seriously, I have a very wild imagination and always think that someone is going to break into my home. I can't watch scary movies if Leo is TDY or asleep. Because I seriously freak myself out. Yes, I'm a big baby. I do use my BlackBerry to navigate me through the house when I get to bed and everyone is already sleeping. Oh--and my feet cannot be anywhere near the edge of the bed. I'm afraid someone or something will grab my feet from under my bed....don't make fun of me! Haha!

And there you have it. Seven more amazing facts that are, simply put, me.

If you want to play along let me know--I love finding more out my friends!

Shell said...

Great facts! Sephora could be the death of me or at least my bank account.

kys said...

Sephora is referred to as Mecca in my house.

PS I laughed my butt off (and that is a LOT of laughing) at Talledega Nights.

Wendi said...

Pres. Kathy said...

Great getting to know you!!

The Mommyologist said...

I loved reading your seven and getting to know you better! I can't window shop either! I am just horrible about it!!

I love to laugh too! Today, I went to back out of my garage and I backed up before the door was all the way up and I pulled it off the track and it's all busted and bent! I laughed my ass off! I figured it will make for a great blog post if nothing else!! LOL!

Midday Escapades said...

Fun post. I love learning more about you. I also like Drew Barrymore. She's so darn cute.

p.s. I did enter your blog makeover giveaway. Good luck to everyone!

Loukia said...

We are SO alike! I'm afraid of the dark, too! I need to have all the lights on at home if I'm alone and the kids have gone to sleep. Yikes, too scared to turn off the lights! My husband will come home and ask why all the lights are on! I also LOVE shopping. Window shopping? TORTURE! No thank you!

Sarah said...

Love finding out more about you! I, also, have a hard time just window shopping. My husband is great at it. Me? Not so much :) Love Sephora and Ulta, too!

amanda said...

I could have wrote #7 myself!
I havent seen the cars with boys movie... I'll have to check it out!

Llama said...

Once again, you are super mom. Iraq?!?stitches?!?! You are so amazing. Missouri sounds wonderful...ive never been there. I too cannot windowshop...Target is def. one of my worse... i can never leave there without buying more than one thing. MMMMHmmm wineeee...although I may have to pass on the margaritas...i get a little loopy with tequilla!!!!!! I would NEVER make fun of someone who is scared of the dark because I am right there with you. I swear I totally freak myself out sometimes. I look at shadows, hide beneath the blankets and frequently think I hear things that aren't there. You are NOT alone!

Honey B. said...

Hah! Also afraid of the dark, and you listed ALL my favorite stores. And I'm a klutz! No stitches though, I usually break bones. lol

I love reading things like this :)

You were in Iraq? What'd you do? I'm clumsy as well - I broke my big toe tripping over our family cat when I was in middle school. Try explaining that one to the doctor. lol.

I've heard a lot of good things about Springfield - may have to check it out! I felt the same way when I moved away, I love going back home to Gilmer, TX and seeing how barely anythign has changed. Rich hates it, he'd rahter live somewhere else, but I think it's nice to raise kids.

I can't window shop either! It drives me nuts - I just want to buy! lol. Rich'll want to get out of the house and just scrath-n-sniff (it's what we call it, lol), but I tell him we can't unless I'm coming home with something.

I don't think I've ver seen Riding in the Car with Boys -I'll hve to check it out. My parents used to own a video store, so I have a lot of VHS's of some of my favorite movies.

I can't do wine - the smell of it can make me gag...kida like tequila. lol. I guess I just never got the hang of it - I was always a beer girl. And now that I can't have beer, I need to find another drink.

I laugh at a lot - obviously with all the freakin' lol's in here.

Terrified of the dark too! I have nighlites through out our house, and always leave the stove light on at night. It was a hard thing for Rich to get used to when we first moved in together, but now it's just another quirk. I loved having my Christmas tree up because it offered light without turning on any others, and now it's put up. lol.

I do the same thing with my feet, I can't stand them being near the edge - and I'll raise ya one... I have a pillow that I lay beside me in bed so the "boogie man" doesn't get me. Now I don't belive in the boogie man, but whatever is over the edge of the bed I guess. It drives Rich insane, especially when we had a full size bed, now we have a king so it's not really an issue. lol.
