Wee bit of me Wednesday...on a Thursday!! :)

1. Have you ever milked a cow or a goat?

Why yes, yes I have! We went to a place called Dewberry Farms a couple of years back with my dad's company and they had a cow there that you can milk! I also think I might have milked a cow even before that at the rodeo! It's pretty neat!

2. What sound does your alarm make when it goes off in the morning?

I use my phone as my alarm so it is just a ringtone that is one the phone.  I do prefer this to a traditional "buzzer" alarm clock...but who really likes to wake up in the morning? Not me for sure!

3. Chocolate milk or hot chocolate?

Hot Chocolate all the way! Salted hot chocolate to be more specific.

4. What is one of the quirkiest things about you?

Ok this is weird and frankly I didnt even think of this thing at first...I had to ask my sister what she thought my quirkiest thing about me would be. But she is totally right. I hate, hate, HATE being touched really softly. Like just the slightest touch gives me the weirdest sensation and I can feel it for hours afterward! Don't get me's not that I can't be touched at all...its just like if your gonna make contact just make contact! lol My sister always threatens me when I get in a hyper mood(which might be another quirky thing about me come to think of it!) that she will "touch me softly"...needless to say I stop. LOL!!

5. Are you more like your mom or your dad?

Um I look more like my mom but definitely have more of my dad's personality! The traits I got from him are probably not the best in the world but we all learn to live with ourselves! HaaHaa just kidding!

So which one do you think I look more like?

6. Do you sleep with the tv on?

No! No! No! Grrr that drives me nuts! It has to be totally quiet and dark or I don't feel like I'm 'enjoying' falling asleep! Weird I know. My parents though, HAVE to fall asleep with the t.v. on. So if I ever travel with my mom we always fight over the t.v. being on....she always wins! I just wait up till she falls asleep then turn it off! Ha!

7. If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

Any shade of purple...i love purple!

8. Ross, Joey, or Chandler?

Well I wasn't a big Friends watcher growing up, but I would have to pick Chandler.

9. Do you play any musical instruments?

Yes, I do! I play the French Horn and Clarinet. I played French Horn throughout middle school and all four years of highschool. I played the Clarinet in middle school.

10. What's the worst thing you've ever cooked/baked?

Ya know, I don't know...Oh! yes I do! It was a lemon meringue pie...aweful, aweful, aweful. And normally I am terrific at following either this was a bad recipe or I totally screwed up. I do have a funny story about my sister though...She made chocolate chip cookies last year at my house  for christmas. They tasted like she used salt for sugar! They were soooo salty! I know this wasnt the case, but she must have miss read tablespoons for teaspoons or something! LOL!! It always seems like she screws up recipes at my house...anywhere else and it comes out perfect...i dunno!

Big Apple Red

So I went and got a Mani/Pedi this past weekend and decided I wanted to wear a "sexy" color this time around! The brightest, reddest color they had was Big Apple Red and I absolutely love it!

Master Bath Redo Continued...

I forgot I had a few more pictures I had taken in my phone. So here they are:

This is the cement Alex used to level out the floor before the new floors went down...

We changed out the A/C vent and the exhaust fan. We added an exhaust fan with a light to help out with the lighting in the shower. We needed this because even though our new lighting is beautiful it is quite as bright as what we had before.
Hopefully soon I will have the Afters!
Oh and I am working on a post about a marriage seminar Alex and I went to a couple of weeks ago...
Till then!

So finally I am sharing with you all the awesome scarf I recieved from Ashley over at DASH Photography!!

Check out this scarf and the oh so cute card!!

And here I am showing it off!!
I forgot to take a picture of the scarves I sent her but they were really cute! Hopefully she will blog about them so you can see!

Master bath redo

Labor day weekend the hubby and I decided to finish the redo we had started months ago on the master bath.  We already redid the shower, turning it from a tub/shower combo into a full stand up shower.  So that weekend we painted (well actually I did this!), put up a new light above the sink, put in a new vanity (a taller one with more counter space), and replaced the a/c vent as well as the exhaust fan, added a swanky new mirror (that I just love!) and put down new wood floors!  I only have a picture of the vanity area because my mom wanted me to text her a picture of the project so I had this picture on my phone! lol The befores as well as the after of the shower I still need to upload off my camera. But I thought I would at least update on this part because well, I have been slacking on my blog posts!

Yes I know our bathroom is small, but we have an older house and thats the way they come!

So I participated in the second annual scarf swap over at the Sweet T Family and will have a blog up soon telling ya'll all about it!!

Till then....

The Lovely Scentsy!

A few months ago my sister and I hosted a girls night for all our friends.  Along with yummy food, drinks and games we also hosted a Scentsy Party!! If you don't know what a Scentsy is, it is a very fragrant wax that you melt with a light bulb! So safe and smells sooo good! After that night, I have become addicted to them.  That night I bought two full size warmers, two plug-in warmers for my bathrooms and like 10 of the scent bars!

If these sound interesting to you and you want to try them out or you already love them and want more...then check out Ms. Danielle over at Living in the 'burbs with the Lenz's!!!  She is the wonderful Independent Consultant who hosted our Scentsy Party.  She is doing a Giveaway over on her check it out!! If you don't win and still want to have one of these beauties in your home you could host a party with her(if your in the Houston area) or order straight from her Website!
