And You Are...?

Here is Tammy and Emily's blog hop!

1. How many speeding tickets have you gotten?
Just one--from one of those stupid speeding cameras. I was on my way to get a Christmas present for my husband a few years ago--and speeding to get to the store in time to get the great deal. A $225 speeding ticket later... (BTW, everyone told me not to pay it. All that got me was a visit from the police and a $25 fine in addition to the ticket I had to pay before my court date. Nothing says Merry Christmas like a court date.) 

2. Can you pitch a tent?
Yes. Kind of. I pitched on in our living room a few months ago so me and the kids could go indoor camping. When my husband got home, he informed me that it was a "creative" way to set up a tent.

3. What was your worst vacation ever?
We went to Mission Bay in San Diego and rode these bicycle-things on the water for hours. I didn't wear sun screen (Rule #1 for redheads: ALWAYS wear sunscreen.) When we got done, I was so sunburned, I couldn't even wear pants. And it was my fourteenth birthday. I spent the whole drive home, moaning and complaining in the back of the car. Come to think of it, it was probably my parent's worst vacation, too.

4. What was the last thing you bought over $100?
A stroller/car seat combo for the baby.

5. We're handing you the keys to what?
A beach house. 

6. What was the last meal you cooked that made even you sick?
This corn chowder mess. I still can't even smell corn chowder without feeling sick.

7. Fill in the blank: Oh my gosh! Becky, look at her butt! It is so big. She looks like a ... Drawing blanks here. Ummm... I feel kind of bad for Becky and her bootilicious butt... so pass.

8. What was your first car?
A 2001 Daewo. Never heard of them? That's probably a good thing. Everything that could break, broke on that car. Including the driver's door. It fell off one day--while I was driving. On the freeway.

9. Your best friend falls and gets hurt. Do you ask if he/she's okay or laugh first?
I make sure they're okay first, then laugh. Except, my husband fell of the bed a few weeks ago while he was trying to reach something, took down the rolling chair, broke his open night table drawer with his head, and hit so hard that he had a huge bump behind his ear. I was laughing so hard I couldn't even breathe. Just last night, I did a reenactment of it for him. I'm a good wife like that.

10. What's the worst song ever?
This is the song that never ends, yes it goes on and on my friends... (you know it's stuck in your head now)


  1. Laughing when your hubby gets hurt is a must!

    Bummer about the camera ticket. Those should be illegal.

    Thanks for participating!

  2. A beach house sounds lovely. And I'd laugh if that happened to my hubby too. ;)

  3. OK, the car door falling off on the freeway gives my car a run for its money in the "spectacular death of a first car" category. Yikes!

  4. Lamb Chop!

    Oh, I swear I knew it before I read Chantele's answer :)

  5. *shakes fist* Now that song is TOTALLY STUCK IN MY HEAD!!!! Gaaaaah... And I'm actually laughing at your hubby falling off the bed story... oh my gosh... that is funny...

  6. As a Bertha Butt, I appreciate your discretion. lol

  7. Dangit, it is stuck in my head now! I've had those burn moments with the blisters and having to sleep with nothing on while shivering from the burn and the cold chills. I feel your pain from that vacation for sure!

  8. mission bay?? i grew up going there ALL THE TIME! memories... wait, another bad song!!

  9. Your hubby story is hysterical!!!! But only because I've been there. Hubby understands that I'm going to laugh until I can't breathe and tears are streaking down my face if he falls. He had to accept that before we were married.
