today you shall learn silly things about me. Enjoy!

1. Where is your cell phone: 
On my desk.... I am awkward at talking on the phone...

2. Your hair:
It is an utter disaster! I went to get my hair cut and colored. The stylist (I use that term loosely) refused to color it the way I wanted it). Now I have a "mom" haircut....

3. Your mother:
Works so hard to make a better life for herself. And she loves my daughter so much!

 Sitting at home watching "Gilmore Girls" in DVD. Lauren Graham is a goddess, and I am convinced that if we ever me we would be best friends....
13. Something you are not:
I cannot tell a lie! Seriously, I get all weird-faced and fidgety if I try to fib.
14. Muffins:
Favorite muffins are from the MudHouse in Springfield, MO. "Death by Chocolate" is really a dessert disguised as a breakfast item!

33. One person who emails me regularly:
Jenna. We try to cheer each other up with our silly e-mails.

34. Favorite place to eat:
I think I need to find a place that I like in Arkansas. The only restaurant that comes to mind is in Springfield "Nonna's"

35. Where do you want to be in 6 years:
I want to live somewhere like Germany or Austin or anywhere that is not Arkansas (I know that was all over the place). I want to be working from home drawing and taking care of my kiddos (I do plan to have at least one more within the next 6 years). I want to be healthy and see my husband succeed as an amazing Math Professor.

Wow. If you read that whole thing, I commend you.

I just came across your blog today and I am glad I did!

It was nice reading this and it is so great to find someone else who adores and appreciates Lauren Graham. I would not admit this to just anyone, but I have the whole Gilmore Girls series on DVD. I lost count the times I’ve watched each season, however most of those were background company while I stay up all night on some days when I have a lot of work to do for school.

Dessert disguised as breakfast foods are the best. I also refuse to pay for cable, only because I’m a fan of movies more than tv shows. Plus we have Hulu.com :]

Anyway, I’ll definitely subscribe and I apologize for the long comment. Just wanted to leave a quick note. Take care!

I laughed at the “Beefy Boy” memory! What a fun memory that is! I just got a visual of us all on a vacation together again, but this time with some new “Beefy Boy” club members…our husbands! Don’t know that they really fit that description, but just a funny thought.

last night i dreamt it was illegal to have mom hair.

Posted by Jenna on June 25, 2014

omg i would love to have that super colorful sewing machine as well! and don’t worry, i’m awkward on the phone now too, so much better at texting and emailing ha!

Thanks for the sweet comments!
Karen: I am so glad that I am not alone in my Gilmore Girls Love.

Sandy: Perhaps texting is the way to go.

Jenna: Your dream is probably a vision of the future. Mom hair should be outlawed.

Leslie: We have to have another family vacation with our own beefy boys!
