We Bit Of Me Wednesday

{one} what kind of camera do you have?
I have a FujiFilm S700 Digital Camera, the next camera I want will be a professional one I was told to go on KSL find a photographer who is selling their "old" one and buy it, they will usually upgrade theirs every few years so you can get a killer deal on a "used" camera! I like this! Just gotta save up the few hundred dollars to do so!

{two} you just won $1000 and you have to spend it on yourself on one item. what do you buy?
Ummmm look at the first question, instead of used I would buy NEW!!! I would love to say an IPAD cause they are awesome but it's like 60 bucks a month for the internet to use the dang NOT cool.....I'm sticking with my new awesome top of the line camera!

{three} if you had to choose, would you rather live with your parents in the same house forever or 5000 miles away?
Depends on the parents, I am married and both sets of parents are re married....I'm not even going to say who or why I chose those sets cause I honestly don't think I could answer that question but I can answer I would rather live with a set of parents than 5000 miles away from them.

{four} is your christmas tree up yet?
Nope but on Friday it will be!!!!

{five} do you bring reusable bags to the grocery store?
Nope I use the old plastic bags for my small garbage cans (ie the bathroom or our bedroom) and to hold stinky diapers.

{six} which would be worse: listening to the same song on replay for the rest of your life or having to eat the same meal everyday for the rest of your life?
Same meal you can tone out the music you can't tone out the food that goes in your mouth!!!

{seven} name 3 things you are thankful for this season.
My Husband, My Kids, The fact that my paper route will be finished on my Husbands birthday......SWEET

I dye my hair I love it when I can have the salon do it however I be broke....I do it myself....

{nine} would you rather watch a movie at home or at the theater?

Brother Husbands

I throw the bouquet, to what I am thinking is my single ladies
WTH? Does ANYONE else see what's wrong with this picture?


With that being said, I offered him a deal like the Sister Wives from TLC, he loved the idea until he heard what I had to say, I told him it would be extra husbands but instead extra wives, to help around the house with the chores he hates and or refuses to do like the Lawn. I didn't see what was so wrong with it. I thought it was an amazing idea if I say so myself. Mr. Cranky Pants said NO....

Rude I know...

Whatever......I guess I will have to settle....the things I do for this man!

A Wee Bit Of Me Wednesdays

{two} do you have a go-to song for karaoke?
No...I don't sing in public, I would not put people through that torture

{three} if you could only see black and white except for one color, what color would you choose to see?

{four} what color best matches your personality?

{seven} do you give your pets birthday/christmas gifts?

{eight} when your plate has different foods on it, do you mix or not?
It all depends ON the food wether they can mix together or not. For an example, peas and mashed potatoes can touch and are OK to mix but hashbrowns with Ketchup and pancakes with syrup CAN NOT touch, infact they can't even be on the same plate together Ewwwwwwwww gag....

{nine} if you could hire someone to do one thing for you all the time, what would it be?
Do my Laundry!?! But then again I would end up feeling guilty and not have them do it anymore...I'm odd like that

Meet Apollo

Meet Apollo & Alyssa. I work with Alyssa, she is Awesome....this is her dog Apollo. He is part Great Dane & Mastiff....yeah he's going to be a HUGE dog. In the first picture was him taken the end of August the next 2 pictures is his paw next to my hand the first the end of August the 2nd one was taken today. Oh MY! He JUST turned 5 months old. The last picture is Alyssa & Apollo taken today...He weighs 80 pounds at 5 months old! He is the sweetest dog, he gives you tiny kisses when you know he could easily cover your face with slober! I love him! He's got such a great personality! From what Alyssa says he is about to go through another grow spurt, I will take more pictures of him in a few months! I miss not having a dog. I miss Molly, even though she did drive me insane....

Parent Teacher Conference For Avery

We learned a lot at Avery's most recent parent teacher conference. He wasn't there because my Mom and Terry took him and Toby out for Ice Cream. While we were there we discovered a few things. First we discovered that by the end of the year the kids are supposed to know 107 words by sight. Avery already knows 95 of them, NOW....yeah he's awesome I know. She says that when he starts to read he is a different person. He can read so smoothly. AWESOME. He's getting a Barnes and Noble gift card for Christmas from my parents, he's going to LOVE it.
She said that he is great with Math as well...she said that he is working on 2 part instructions. Part 1 he is good with put more than 1 step instructions he tends to get lost....we have been working with him on that at home so that's nothing new I am just glad she is working with him on it as well. He also is working on the ability to tie his shoes. He can't seem to get it down. It drives me insane. Richard has been his teacher cause I am pretty sure my hair would be pulled out by now if it was me teaching him.
She told us that he has "people" we looked at her with a confused look on our faces, People? She said when she notices that his shoes are untied he will notify one of his "people" and they will come and tie them for him. Seriously kid? Oh dear....he told us later that night that Manuel ties them the best....I tried so hard NOT to laugh....
The next thing his teacher showed us was his handwriting. It has gotten so much better. She had him write a letter about what his plans were for Halloween. He wrote that he was going to go trick or treating with his family and his step family and that he was going to be a swat man. She doesn't know our family, so she didn't think anything was wrong with the letter.......Richard and I we had her repeat the letter, yup we were right it did say going trick or treating with his family and step family...Hummmm who is this said step family? We explained to his teacher he doesn't have a step family. She started to laugh, he doesn't was her response....nope! So when we got home we asked Avery who is step family is. He said it was Ty and Drew, that is my friend Lisa's kids. We were going trick or treating with them at my work. So I joked around with Lisa and emailed her that and asked, So is Bryan (her husband and my co worker) my ex or is Richard your ex? More so do I need to start sending you child support for your and Richard's children or does Bryan need to start sending child support for our children! It made me laugh..still does...ahh Avery!
