31 Years Young!

31 years ago today my momma had her 7th child.
I'm working on my third and don't know how she did it.

Like years past,
I am blessing you with 31 oh so important pieces of info about myself.


1. I only like the strawberry Twizzlers, not the cherry ones.
2. I am obsessed with Mason jars.
3. I prefer to write in print instead of cursive and in blue ink instead of black ink.
4. I'm okay if Abby sticks to Thomas the Train and Phineas and Ferb like her brother, and doesn't develop any more of princess complex then she already has.
5. I am currently reading Lover Unleashed the 9th book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood vampire romance series on my old lady glider swing as the kids play in the backyard.
6. My Starbucks drink is a venti iced chai latte...with a side of cashews or beef jerky to balance my sugar intake.
7. My most recent iTunes purchase is Keep Your Head Up by Andy Grammer.
8. I'm not gonna lie, I think cursing is therapeutic in a stressful situation.
9. If I were allowed to remodel one room in my house, I would pick the garage.
10. The phrase "What the?!" is like nails on a chalk board to me.
11. I have more respect for a man wearing an undershirt than a man not wearing one. It's just one of my things. You got to wear an undershirt.
12. My all-time favorite movie is Dirty Dancing.
13. I love the smell of suntan lotion and sunblock.
14. I get that people love Jesus, but actions speak louder than words...
so live what you preach or don't preach. That's all I'm saying.
15. I love kitchen towels...especially vintage ones.
16. I sort the dishes before I wash them.
17. I love crepe paper ruffles.
18. It drives me nuts when the McDonalds drive-thru kid says, "What can I make you?" He takes the orders and the money, he is not making me anything. I smile, refrain from correcting him, and just indulge in my fries, hot mustard, and Dr. Pepper as I drive away.
19. If I could change any physical thing about myself, I wish I had a darker complexion.
20. If I had it my way, my entire house would have hard wood floors. Carpet is over-rated when you have kids and pets.
21. Although I love a good romance movie or book, I would not say I am romantic in real life.
22. I love yellow petunias.
23. Painting my front door fire engine red, hanging a sunflower wreath on it, and adding a storm door would make my summer.
24. I love bubble baths in the winter/fall and showers in the summer.
25. I think Red Lobster has the best french fries around.
26. I want to take a trip down south just to eat the food.
27. My favorite Scentsy scent is Welcome Home, but I'm super excited to get Sugar, Red Candy Apple, Havana Cabana, and French Kiss in the mail soon from my cousin's party!
28. My favorite childhood memories are catching frogs with my little sister, picking strawberries with my grandma, and swinging on the porch swing under Aunt Ruth and Uncle Bill's tree.
29. I love AJ's freckles and Abby's nasal voice.
30. I love any kind of soda in glass bottles.
31. I prefer tinted sun block to foundation and lip gloss to lipstick.

Leave me a comment for my birthday and make me one happy girl...
all you blog stalkers out there.

Lots of love to ya!

Hmmm. I feel compelled to leave a bonus. You know, like an extra booty smack. One to grow on: Whether it's summer or winter, the girl always sleeps with covers. Love all the 31 years of ya! Happiest Bday! And I also want a fire engine red door someday. But I have certain house in mind.

Chance, I love this idea and I think I will steal it and do it on my birthday this year, if I can think of 25 things. Hope your birthday was awesome.
