Get To Know Me Sunday & Random :)

GettingtoknowYOU

 
I was feeling the need to write this evening after having spent the entire day packing and packing and, well, packing. I need a little bit of a break from all of the junk piled up in the corners of my house waiting to be put into storage. I’ve seen this fun little meme floating around the blogosphere for the past week or two and I decided that I wanted to play along. The object of the meme? To fill in your answers…easy peasy. :)

1 - Why did you start blogging? I started blogging in 2008 for the sole purpose of keeping our family up to date with what was going on in our lives. After Little Man was born, I turned to other mom bloggers for advice, encouragement and laughter on the days when being a mom was wearing me completely out.

2 - Who's the one blog friend that you would want to meet most in "real life"? Geez, I have to pick just one?! I would love to meet each and every single one of you, but I have to say I’d love to meet Mandi, Laura, Beth, and Mary. All uber-cool ladies with whom I know I have a lot in common with.

3 - Why are you always concerned with losing that "extra 10 pounds" when chances are your husband/boyfriend/friends tell you that you look just fine the way you are? I don’t really think I have 10 pounds to lose. I am more or less concerned with toning myself up. I probably have about 3 or 4 pounds of baby weight that I could knock off. And even though I know my husband loves me just the way that I am, I don’t think there is anything wrong with a woman taking pride in the way she looks and wanting to look her best-even if that means losing 10 pounds.

4 - What's the one thing you wish guys could understand about you? I don’t really care if “guys” understand me or not. My Hubby understands most everything, so that’s what counts. However, I do wish he understood why it drives me BONKERS when he doesn’t hang his clothes up after he takes them off, or when he leaves his stuff laying around in odd ball places.   :)

5 - Tattoos. How many do you have and how many are visible when you wear your "everyday" clothes? No tattoos…yet. I want to get one on my foot and one on my wrist. I want a Pink Gerber daisy on my Right foot {we had Gerber Daisy’s at our wedding}, and I want the word “Believe” on the inside of my left wrist.

6 - What was the best year of your life and why? 2008 hands down. That’s the year that Hubby and I got married {April 19}, found out we were having Little Man {May 9}, moved to Florida for Hubby’s first CG Unit {June 16} and the year Little Man was born {October 27}. It was a busy year, a stressful year, and an emotional year…but it was by far the most wonderful year ever.

7 - Name three things you would do if you were a man for one day. Sleep until 10 minutes before I had to leave to go somewhere, because I wouldn’t have to put any effort into getting dressed. I’d love to just understand how the male mentality works. And I’d be lying if I said that knowing how the male…err…anatomy worked didn’t pop into my head.

8 - What's your alcoholic drink of choice that usually raises a few eyebrows? I’m not a real big drinker. And when {and if} I drink anything, it’s nothing that would raise eyebrows. I like Fruity Drinks…basically anything that I can’t really taste the alcohol in…Pina Colada, Daiquiris, Lemonades…

That was fun. I like playing these fun little get to know you games. In fact, I’m thinking of doing a “Get to know ME” post in the next few weeks. So if you have any questions for me, anything you want to know, anything about me or hubby or Little man or military life or whatever that you want me to talk about, send me an email at mrsckirkland@gmail.com. No question is off limits. Make sure to include the link to your blog in the email so I can give you some linky love when I do my post. I’ll leave this up for a week or two so hopefully I can get lots and lots and lots of questions.

On a different note, we have the house finished. Except for the cleaning, which I will be doing tomorrow [Oh joy. Oh Bliss.] Hubby finished up all the painting today; I got everything for the Salvation Army separated and set to the side to be delivered tomorrow or Tuesday. I’ve got everything that we aren’t taking with us packed and either put in storage or set in the garage waiting to go to storage. We are giving our couch and a few odd ball pieces of furniture to our neighbor on Tuesday and we have to box up our TV and then we will be finished. They are coming between 8-10 on Tuesday to cut off the cable and internet, and then they will cut the power off sometimes before 8:00 pm Tuesday night.

We were going to rent a hotel, but opted to just stay with a neighbor for two nights. No need in wasting that money. Thursday the CG Unit is having a farewell lunch thing for Hubby, so we’re eating lunch and then we’ll be on the road to Alabama by 1:00 or so. Should be back at home before 6:30ish [hopefully]. I’m missing my Little Man this week like crazy. I enjoy my time ‘off’, but after a little while I get ready for him to come home…or ready to go get him since technically he is ‘home’ for the next 5 months.

We had a good time at the beach yesterday. It was gorgeous out and we got a lot of sun. I’m a little burnt on my chest and my shoulders, but nothing to be too concerned about. Hubby only got sunburn on one side of his body…weird. We did find out last night that one of the sweet little ladies that worked the nursery at our church passed away unexpectedly. She was only 50-something. Such a sweet lady. She worked the nursery with her mom and loved the kids like they were her own. I always felt like Noah had two grandmothers at church. Then we found out this afternoon that Hubby’s aunt passed away. She’s been doing bad for a while so we were expecting it. We were hoping we would make it home before she passed, but we didn’t.

Anywho. Now that I had to bring you guys down with that unfortunate news, I guys I will leave you for tonight. I’ve got a load of clothes that need drying and there is a pack of Reese Cups sitting on the kitchen counter calling my name. I’ve gone running [ok…well, something like that] a few times this week and I’m planning on going again tomorrow morning after I drop hubby off at work. I’ll have you guys another post sometime in the AM, but I can’t promise when. Got lots of cleaning to do. Hope you all had a great weekend and have a wonderful start to your week tomorrow!
