While the lovely Kendra is globetrotting in Europe, I get to host her awesome link up: Answer me this! Here’s my answers to last week’s questions. Next week’s questions are below, so join in on the fun!
1. What’s the scariest thing that’s ever been in your yard?
If you’re talking about our current yard, I’d probably have to say our creepy next-door-neighbor who always seems to be hiding in the bushes. Also he wears suspenders with no shirt almost every day. So there’s that. But, if you mean any yard we’ve ever had, then I would say, “That giant cottonmouth that was sunbathing in our driveway in Texas. HUGE. Biggest snake I’ve ever seen. Our housemate shot it’s head off with a shotgun. And then, all the men of the house decided it would be a great idea TO EAT IT. No, I did not try it. Yes, it was gross and I got to say I told you so.”
2. Beards. Thumbs up or thumbs down?
Um…thumbs up, of course. I married this guy:
Did you write that one just for me, Kendra?
3. If stuff breaks, can you fix it?
Absolutely not. If one of the kids rips a shirt or a button comes off, they say, “It’s ok, Daddy can sew it back on.” Or, “Grandaddy can fix our fan.” They know I’m hopeless.
4. What was your first car?
When I was in high school my parents let me drive their Camry around a lot. I didn’t have a car for the first two years of college. Then when Daniel and I got married my parents gifted the ol’ Camry to us. And it was awesome and the best car ever until a truck ran a red light and hit me and totaled it in January. Sad.
5. How often do you eat out?
Once a week. Daniel and I have a standing “date night,” meaning only nursing babies come with us. (If they can’t talk, and we can have a real conversation, it’s kind of like they’re not there, right?) The big kids go to grandma’s house. It is awesome and so great for our marriage and makes me really happy. Also, we always go to the same restaurant. Because their Pad Thai is the best, and why go anywhere else? Are we boring? Don’t answer that. We’re boring and full of delicious Pad Thai!
6. Why is your hair like that?
I’ve always enjoyed having short hair and my hair was short on and off since high school. And I dyed it every color under the sun.
After blonde and pink, before ginger and black. Daniel is too cool for school.
But after Lucy was born I had long hair and then experienced that lovely post partum hair-falling-out thing. And I really like to take baths but not when I’m BATHING IN HAIR. Oh my gosh, it makes me cringe just thinking about it.
Back to brown. Red highlights. Adorable little Benjamin bear.
So, I got it cut really short and died it blonde and haven’t grown it out again.
Oh goodness! Baby Lucy!
I also have loved red hair since I was 5 and saw Anne of Green Gables for the first time. So, when I’m not pregnant and less worried about chemicals being on my hair, I go for the red.
Newborn Gwen Stellamaris!
It’s naturally a brown. But kinda mousey? Hope you enjoyed that ridiculous walk through the history of my hair. Now I have baby fever from browsing pictures of tiny kiddos. Thanks a lot. 😉
