Do you ever feel like...

Heck yeah! I got you to click on over Right? LOL. This image has been found on Google images! Wow! And is probably in a magazine somewhere. Yup, that's me on the right. Me with my LOVER. Aren't we cute together? :P

Do you ever feel like doing nothing?
Just watching your favorite flicks on TV, drinking Dr. Pepper, (Or whatever, your beverage of choice) AND relaxing. Yeah, that's ME today.

I mean, I'm not really into blogging much. (Apart from this post--LOL)
I don't feel like commenting. Unless it is so entirely FUNNY I cannot stop laughing and relating.

Well I found one today.
Are you all familiar with The Empress? And you all blog right?

Well, get a load of what The Empress has written now.  <--Yup, that's right.  To see the post click on those words right over there to be instantaneously transported to her blog.

She totally gets me. She gets us. I meant US. You and I are both bloggers.

Yeah. Click on over. Leave her a comment. Then click back over here, and tell me if she isn't right.

And it's a series of posts--I know, right? Like it couldn't get any better.

But it will.

It most definitely WILL.

Why I stick with blogging?

Thanks to Google images for the above image!

I wrote a post last week or so about why I blog. Now I am going to tell you why I stick with blogging.
My husband and I have moved around a lot in the past 5 years. We haven't owned a house yet together and so we just go where the jobs are.  Last year, in August, the job led us to the desert. Yup, that's right. Smack right here in the middle of a desert. (About 90 minutes from Vegas, so I'll take it.) :D

  Before Nevada was UT. I make friends easily. But it is hard to make close friends when you are always up and moving all the time. (And no, My husband is not in the army.) I have made some pretty good friends in the bloggy world that make me laugh AND cry. (Cry in a good way ya know.) I feel like I continue to blog to build our relationship better.

You have to get-to-know me right?

Blogging is always there for me. When I've had a bad day, or I need a laugh, just open up blogger and review the blogs I am following...It's that easy.  I admit, it's hard to pimp out your blog at first, comment like crazy on 20 thousand different blogs just to receive like 2 comments, but slowly but surely as you gain an audience, people WILL comment. They just will, trust me.

When you are honest with your readers, like I usually am, (unless I am trying to make you laugh) they will comment.

I stick with blogging because of the friendships, because I LOVE to write, and blogging helps keep me sane.
 I've been blogging for a little over a year now, and it still brings me joy to meet new friends. Twitter parties, Blogfrog communities, new writer's all good.

Thanks for choosing to stick by me on my journey of blogging.

Someday I might make it on Ellen. Ya think?

Why do you stick with blogging?
How long have you been blogging?

Friday Confessional with Glamazon Mom!

Well, I have a few confessions. And since Glamazon Mom is asking, here I go.
 I have about 10 or so. K?
Here are my confessions:

1. I am addicted to clean underwear. Yup, that's right, I HATE re-wearing my undies. In fact, I don't believe I wear dirty underwear often. I also WASH, not only MY underwear, but my whole family's underwear. Because if we were ever in an accident, Heaven forbid, we would need clean underwear. Because AFTER the accident, our underwear might look like this:

Do me a favor, do NOT google dirty underwear. You get an eyeful for sure. LOL.

2. I am addicted to Hootsuite. And this just IN, I can now update to my Facebook fan page from Hootsuite. *sigh* So now my updates will ALWAYS be from Hootsuite. I mean, come on, isn't the little OWLY cute?
3. I am addicted to connected with NOT only my Twitter buddies, MY bloggy buddies AND my Facebook FANS. Don't you want to be my fan too?

4. I am addicted to chocolate. (Sorry, T  I just am. I always be. Just like you LOVE peanut butter on a spoon.)

5. I am addicted to water! You can bathe in it and YOU can drink it. (Psst..don't EVER drink your bath water though. That's just gross.)

6. I'm addicted to Dr. Pepper. Diet and regular. I mean how else am I suppose to run this house of mine without some Dr. Pepper? *And if you drink Dr. Pepper you might just look like her! * For reals. :D

7. I am addicted to my netbook. Can you imagine what I would be like with a crackberry or an ipad? Oh, heavens, I can hardly stand to think about that one. :D

8. I am addicted to food. I mean isn't everybody? I just can't live without putting something in my body. *Enter hot spicy cheetos and chinese food* These two items are NOT to be put inside your body at the same time either.

9. I am probably addicted to nagging my kids to WORK. Come on short people, I know this is your summer break but get to WORK now, PLEASE?

10. I'm addicted to comments on my blog. Yup, that's right. And to checking my email. I might miss something ya know? :D

Those are my addictions. Any questions?

A sneak peek into my HOUSE....Bwa,ha, ha,ha,ha ha!!!

Hey y'all.
Just wanted to give you a sneak peek into MY clean house.
  Yes, I know, I still rent and I am in my 30's...I will be in my OWN house someday and subject to no one else's standard of clean. But for now...I have a cleaning inspection today by the landlord. Which is totally cool BTW, I've cleaned, I've mopped, I've vaccumed, I have $$$ for him...Humor me for about 7 minutes--I know A vlog should ONLY be about 2 minutes...but I edited some, it used to be 10 minutes....Had to show you my CLEAN house.

  You think I will pass?
I'll inform you tomorrow how I did.
And guess what? Husband of mine for the JOB!! Yup, that's right! They wanted him! YAY! I love the fact that he can be the breadwinner for now...I need to write blog and tweet and whatever. It's one HECK of a job, but somebody has to do it. Not to mention ALL the commenting I do...

On to the video...It is funny. Really. I'm funny. 7 minutes and 14 seconds worth of comedy.
It's worth it. Trust me.

Monday Minute with IAN! :)


It is yet another time to answer some silly questions with Ian! :)
Monday Minute!

Monday Minute

I guess Michelle was picked out of the link up to co-host! YAY, Michelle! :) (She really has some rocking out heels BTW!)

1. What is your REAL name?
Rapunzel. Yup, that's right. I have really super L-O-N-G hair and boys like to climb it for some reason. Oh, yeah, My step-mother keeps me locked in a tower 24/7. Anybody wanna rescue me?

2.Have you ever fabricated a story or anything on your blog?  
*AHEM* See question #1. No never, nah-uh. Nope. Nada.

3.When in the car do you listen to the radio/CDs/iPod/etc?
Well, on the rare occasions, my step-mother allows me out of my tower, i usually listen ROCK out to the radio. I love me some Lady Ga-Ga. She rules for sure!

4. Describe the 'sexiest' item of clothing that you own.
Hmm...I have to think on this one......
I'd have to say my Zebra striped underwear....ohh la la. Mama didn't lock me in the tower for nothing you know.

5. Would you be willing to breastfeed your friend's three year old child?
 3 years old???
What? no thank you. 3 years is old is WAY too old for breast-feeding. I say if they can ask for your breast--too old. Give them cow's milk. :)

See below for REAL answers...If you are interested in the TRUTH. :)
I had a good time with these answers today. :)

Real Answers:
1. Alexes
2. Nope, I don't think so. What you see, is what you get. Unless I am feeling creative. Then you get a story.
3. I listen to CD's, because I can't get a good radio station here in the DESERT!!! Grrrr..... I like Julianne Hough currently.
4. Sexiest item of clothing? My tall black-heeled boots. Yup, that's it. (I can't find then for the life of me though...)
5. Same answer as above. I mean, come on. a 3 year old? They can drink cow's milk. They don't need my milk...*sigh*

Blog Bash Challenge #3 Rekindle-The High School Years

Blog Bash

I'm somewhat late to the link-up and I apologize. I had other stuff going on. :)
I am participating in Brittany's challenge #3 Rekindle--> Or what I like to call the High School Years.


The high school years. Such sweet memories for me. NOT! I liked high school okay and all, but my high school was FULL of rich kids. And I never fell in that category at all. I still don't fall into the rich category.  But there was a high school experience I will never forget. Oft times I wish I could go back and change what I actually did, but it is too late now. 

*Names have been changed to protect the innocent* 

Senior year
  I liked Scott from day one. He sat behind be for the l-o-n-g-e-s-t time. He had long legs and he always used to spread his legs out so it always felt like he was closer to me, (since I was sitting in front of him.) He almost always wore a jean jacket to school. He had a gorgeous smile. Scott had brown hair and bright blue eyes and he could always make me laugh.
  What Scott did NOT know is that I wrote love poems to him all through my creative writing class. I wrote a poem all about him entitled: "Because i love you" talking about how i am the only girl who understands him and he has to come to me, because our love is like a burning fire, and how I could extinguish it for him...yada yada...He was a junior. But I didn't care. I was in love with him.  He never did reciprocate my feelings for him though. His best friend Jake did. He liked me. A lot. Mucho.
  Jake worked at the Little Caesar's pizza where I lived. My mom would order pizza on the weekend from the place Jake worked. I'd usually pick up the pizza.

INTERJECTION: I liked Jake as a friend. I was too chicken to take a plunge towards his direction because A-:I liked Scott and B: he was kinda a dork in high school. He was the odd ball out. I didn't want people talking about us. I didn't want to be a dork.

Back to the story.
  When I picked up the pizza from his store, I always allowed him to flirt with me. And I in turn would flirt with him. His nickname for me was "Beautiful." This guy, Jake, and I would have 2-3 hour conversations about life and love and how beautiful I was. He got me through a bad break-up. He was always there for me. In a way, I guess you could call Jake, my Jacob. (You know from Twilight.)

I wish I could go back. I wish I would have kissed Jake l-o-n-g and hard. I would date him. I would allow him to take me to Senior prom in front of all the snobs that went to my high school.  And I wouldn't care what they thought. Because I was in love.
What happen to Scott? Oh who knows? I don't even care anymore. I would like to know where Jake is now. Because he gave me the confidence I needed for college. The "sexy" confidence every woman should have. Thanks Jake. I will never forget you.

That's my high school memory, Brittany.
Thanks for taking me back.

The long and the short of it--Me and blogging. Part 1

I'm about to express a lot in my heart right now. So please bear with me. I might be long-winded. I will try and be as thoughtful and entertaining as I can. K? Thanks for reading this.


  Why I started blogging 
At first, I came into the blog world a stranger. I didn't even know what to expect. I just wanted to keep in touch with old friends and family. And soon that list of only friends and family grew to about 20-25 people. I commented on their blogs and enjoyed hearing from news from their families.
   But not all of them updated every day. And I began to crave this thing, I had newly discovered. Blogging. Now I don't drink at all, but I'm gonna compare blogging to your first stiff drink. I was drunk with blog posts. I had to get MORE.

And then I saw it.
  On the start-up page of it says in BOLD letters: Create a blog in 3 easy minutes! Or something like that. And so I did.

Good criminy. When I first started blogging I had no idea you probably shouldn't put your last name on your url and I didn't know about SEO, and commenting and what the heck a meme was. I just knew I had a passion and I just had to write. And I had to have the feeling of publication. *Now I'm ready to submit some of my stuff to magazines now. All because of blogging.*

  I went ahead and found blogs from my favorite places I visited and joined their sites! I commented like crazy in hopes just ONE would post a comment. It took me a while to get noticed. In defense to those who did not make comments at first, it is because my first few posts were LAME. Man, I wouldn't have commented on them. I actually think I have come a L-O-N-G way since then.

  As my followers grew, (Remember this is my second blog) I got excited. I got excited that people were actually listening to me. And after I attended my FIRST real life blogger conference, the comments I got multiplied a TON after that. I actually felt like a blogger.

 What does a "being a blogger" feel like?
  For once I feel like I can say anything and be heard. And that people care when I hurt or have tears or if I'm happy. I used to care about what others would think and say about my posts and now, (for fear I might get a nasty comment) but my delete key and I, are best friends. For life. If I ever get a nasty comment, I can always hit the delete key.
  And I know that sometimes, some people just don't understand why I blog.
But I do.

I blog for me-- because I have a passion.
I blog for others--to so  I can connect with the world.
I blog for freedom,--freedom to escape into my own world and write.
Writing for me is a release of my emotions.
Mainly so I don't kill my kids or my husband...

And that's how I started blogging.

Next up: Why I stick with blogging. :)

Monday Minute with Ian and Daily Scoop of Chaos!!!

Monday Minute

Hey there peeps! Hope you haven't gotten bored yet? This IS my second blog...So if you miss me, hang out at the other blog--One Cluttered Brain, K? Love you, Smooches to you all though!!

These questions are very telling this week.
I was gonna vlog the answers--(video-blog) but then I figured, Nah, I'll just type it. None of this uploading to You-tube and crap like that.

I guess Daily Scoop of Chaos is going on vacation soon and she wants us all to link up so she can see our answers...If she is not going on vacation, somebody is, I can't remember, Could somebody please remind me?
I need a vacation...

On to the Questions:

1. Can you burp the ABC's?
Nope, not that talented. My brothers can though. :)

2. So lets just say you have a 9+ hour drive ahead of you would you consider wearing Depends so you didn't have to stop multiple times?

Hmm, That might be useful, but I probably wouldn't do it cause I don't wanna change the diaper--LOL. Ew. I'll just pee on the side of the road, but not in the wind, cause I don't wanna get wet.

3. Would you your tongue down five feet of a NYC street or press your tongue into a strangers nostril?
EW. Neither! I have to choose?
If you have a gun to my back, I guess I'd have to day the stranger's nostril.
'Cause a NYC city street is so gross..but then again so is stranger's snot...Not a fan of both really.  (On second thought, I don't think my tongue would fit inside a nostril. I have a small tongue. See?)

(Don't steal this pic. It's late and I just can't watermark it tonight, K?) I'll have to call in the Brute Squad if you do. :)

4. If you had an envelope that contained the date you would die would you open it? Nope. Wouldn't do it. I just wanna live my life carefree as possible!
i don't wanna know when I'm going to bite the bullet and die. Nope, not-uh.

5. Which one song describes your sex life best?
Since this is for fun, :) I'll say, Wild Thing. I love you husband of mine!

Bonus Question:
Bonus Q: 6.Would you rather fly when you fart or pee every time you laugh?
I'd rather fly every time i fart. if i peed every time I laughed I'd have to wear diaper or sit on the toilet a whole LOT! i like to laugh!

10 reasons why I LOVE living in America!

I thought since it was getting ever so close to Independence Day I would let y'all know the liberties I enjoy in America.

  1. The ability to say anything I want, particularly on my blog. Freedom of speech is very important. If I wanted to write about what was going on in my nose, I could. (Why I would want to, I don't know.)
  2. Dr. Pepper. I am glad that I can pretty much pick up a can of Dr. Pepper anywhere in America. *Ahh, energy.*
  3. MEAT. Yes, I said it. I like to eat meat. I mean, what else are we gonna do with the cows anyway?
  4. Fireworks. I love it when the fire department sets off fireworks every 4th for the festivities. Can you think of a better way way to celebrate the 4th then with FIRE?
  5. Freedom to bear arms. *Yup, that's right folks, I got 2 arms and I'm not afraid to "bare" them...LOL. I think I got this particular joke off of my friend's blog--T. *Thanks for the joke T.*
  6. Running water. Yes, I love the fact that I can go to my faucet and turn on the water and it comes out clear. Not all countries can say that.
  7. Apple pie and ice cream. Yup, America's food. I mean who doesn't want a hot dog slathered with chili, onions, and cheese? Mmm. And then top it off with an apple turnover? YUM!
  8. Jobs. Yeah, I know our economy is struggling right now, but it could be a lot worse. I am grateful for the work we do have. :)
  9. The differences we all have. If we were all the same I think we would live in a boring world. And who wants a million Cluttered brains running around in this world? *There is only one Cluttered Brain, and that's me. :)*
  10. And lastly but certainly not the least, the ability to worship however we see fit, as long as it doesn't inflict on anybody...:)
These are a few of the liberties and freedoms and American products I enjoy. What do you enjoy in this great country called America?
