It's Friday! So, that means that it's time to answer 5 Questions from Mama M.'s blog.
1. Do you sing karaoke? If so, what is your go to song?
Heck no!!! Hahahaha I know that I suck at singing and I don't even attempt it! (Unless I'm in the car and it's just the hubster, Tom-Tom and me. Even then, I don't sing very loud!)
2. What is your favorite coffee drink?
Ummmm... I don't drink coffee that often, but I like the iced coffee's and I like it with mocha and caramel. Mmm, yummy!! FYI if you want to achieve the "mocha" flavor to your coffee at home just add some hot chocolate. It's very tasty!
3. If you could choose your own name, what would it be?
Ok so call me weird, but I've never thought about this one. I don't know! I like the name Madison and Emma. So I'll say Emma Madison!
4. Were you ever bullied?
5. How often do you eat fast food?
We eat fast food usually between 1-3 times a week. Most of the time not more than that. Unless it's like tax time or something! lol Then we go a little crazy and eat out almost everyday (for dinner, that is).
Woo hoo! It's the weekend! Which means nothing to me, but for those that work Monday - Friday I'm sure you're happy! Anyway, today I'm participating in Mama M.'s Five Question Friday. Here goes nothing!
1. Have you ever hit an animal with your vehicle?
Nope. If an animal is sitting/laying in the middle of the road or runs/walks out into the road I will stop and go around or let them pass.
2. When you see a string on your clothes do you pull it off or cut if off?
I usually pull it. Sometimes, I will get the lighter and burn it (just to get that little burnt piece at the end.) For some reason I think it will not come unstitched (I don't think that's a word, but you get what I mean!! lol At least I hope you do!)
3. Did you have your own room or share a room when you were young?
I am an only child so... I had my own room!!! :D
4. Would you rather wear the same thing for the rest of your life or eat the same thing for the rest of your life?
Oh gosh! That's a hard one, especially since I get bored VERY easily! Umm, but if I had to choose I would say... wear the same thing the rest of my life. I just love food and there is too much good food out there to eat the same thing the rest of my life.
5. What was your favorite TV show as a child?
Oh man! I had lots of favorite shows when I was a kid! The first show I remember watching EVERY single day was Sesame Street! I LOVED that show! I even got into a fight with my cousin because he wanted to watch Gunsmoke *rolls eyes* and I wanted to watch Sesame Street!! lol
My favorite wedding memory is the surprise of the whole thing!! lol We didn't plan anything! It wasn't a big production or anything. We told everyone the weekend before that we were going to get married. I don't know if everyone forgot if they just thought we were bluffing or something! lol It was Thursday, January 28th, 2010. Hahaha not even a month ago! Thomas, Tom-Tom and I all woke up and got ourselves ready to go. We had to go pay on a ticket that Thomas got. So, we called my cousin Matt and told him "Hey, we're going to pay on T's ticket and we're probably going to get married while we're there!" lol Well, they don't do that at the city hall. (How was I supposed to know!!! lol) So, we went to my cousin's house and told him that they didn't do marriage licenses there. He said you have to go to the county offices. So, we did with only Matt, his wife Lisa, and our aunt Tammie (BTW, Lisa and Tammie were on there lunch breaks!! lol) That's my favorite memory!
Before I tell you the engagement story let me give you a little bit of history! If you read any of the previous Valentine's Day Extravaganza posts you know that T and I started dating in high school (and if you haven't you know now! lol). Well, we were an "off and on" kind of couple when we were dating. We dated for a few months then broke up then got back together several different times! Well, in August of 2004 T moved to Mississippi to get to know his mom, grandmother and brother (he was adopted and that's why he didn't "know" them). I thought it was over for good because neither one of us knew if he would come back to Tennessee. Then, in June or July the next year he came back to Tennessee because his foster mother was very ill and about to pass. About a month later she did pass. I was there for him the whole time she was in the hospital and the entire time he was grieving. I guess that's when he realized that he had a good girl and didn't want to let me go. Maybe a month after his mom's passing we were sitting on my aunt's porch by ourselves and he just started telling me how much he cared about me and that he didn't want to live life without me. (I fought back tears!) He didn't have a ring at the time because he had just came back up here and didn't have a job yet! I didn't care, though. I knew what he was saying was coming from his heart and I couldn't/wouldn't deny him and break his heart. And that's our little story!! =D
Today's Valentine's Day Extravaganza theme is Your favorite date story (good or bad!!), or the best night out you've had with your bestie!
I would have to say that the best date that me and the hubster has had was the last one we went on. We went on a date last month (January). We went to Red Lobster (without Tom-Tom) and I had a great time!! Just hanging out with Thomas and talking (and having adult conversation, for once!!). Also, the food was GREAT!! I love Red Lobster, but we never get to go because it's way too expensive! =( I wish we could go more often... maybe when we hit the lottery!! =D Anyway, afterward we went to my cousin's house and had game night with them and it was soooo much fun! Kind of a boring story (i guess), but hey we don't get very many date night's these days and the one's we had when we were single weren't very exciting either!
So, I am a follower of Mama M.'s blog. I like reading her posts and I like her attitude! Anyway this week is Valentine's Day Extravaganza week. I was supposed to post this yesterday (Sunday), but we were gone pretty much all day and I wasn't able to.
Sunday's theme was the story of how you met the love of your life...or, if you haven't yet met the love of your life tell me how you met your best friend!
Well, Thomas and I went to high school together. We had been friends for a year or two before he asked me out. He asked me out by writing me a note when we were in 12th grade! (I know, how old was he!! lol) After he gave me the note I didn't see him at school for a couple of weeks. (Then again I hardly ever saw him to begin with because he was always skipping school.) I didn't answer him right away because he had gone out with my best friend before me, but I think it was a few years before he asked me out. I hadn't ever been asked out by my best friend's ex before, but I had always heard on TV and movies that dating your best friend's ex was a BIG no-no!! lol At the end of the school year at prom he asked me out again and I said yes.
Now we are happily married and have one handsome son together. I'm glad I chose him over her because he stuck around and she didn't! She showed her true colors when I was pregnant, but that's a story for another day!
This morning we did some Valentine's Day crafts. They didn't turn out perfect, but what do you expect from a 2 year old! lol Anyway, we tried to do a Heart Hand print stamp thingy like the one here, but Tom-Tom did it like once and then when I tried to get him to do it with the other hand for some reason he just didn't get it!! lol Anyway, here's how it turned out.
Then, we did some Valentine's Day stamping with cookie cutters and paint.
This is what it looked like in the end.
And now Tom-Tom is down for a nap! Here's a video of him playing with Dada last night, though.
We just got home from Tom-Tom's 2 yr check up it went really well. He weighs 26 1/2 lbs. and is 32 1/4 inches tall. The dr. loved him and was impressed that he didn't cry or throw a mad fit the whole time! That is until he had to get tested for lead and he had to get one vaccination and even then he didn't act out too bad. She was also very impressed with how well he is growing and his language skills! I'm so proud!
So, we were watching "Spiderman" Sunday and Tom-Tom loved the parts with "Man Man". If Peter Parker was on he could care less! lol Anyway his new favorite "stunt" is to stand on the edge of the couch and say "Mama". Me, "What?" He says "Man Man" and jumps off the couch and doesn't land on his feet but on his butt then he rolls over onto his back. Then, he gets up and does it all over again making sure to get my attention by saying "Mama" every time!! lol I am so gonna have to get this on video!
Here's the video, but I didn't get him saying "Mama" and "Man Man" every time. :(
