due to the chocolate meltdown i was having
which brought the emergency giveaway...
i bring back the interupted TAG!
in the meantime:
you can do the tag,
tell me you already did the tag,
or ignore the tag if you are a tag hater.....ready, set, go:

this one is thanks to trying to stay calm...LOVE IT...

A-Attached or Single: Attached
B-Best Friend: My Husband!
C-Cake or Pie: Pumpkin Pie every time!
D-Day of Choice: Sunday
E-Essential Item: CHOCOLATE, of course.
F-Favorite Color: Hunter Green and Sunflower Yellow!
G-Greatest Accomplishment: My Children
H-Hometown: American Fork
I-Indulgences: DATE NIGHT!
J-January or July: January
K-Kids: 3 boys, 1 daughter
L-Life is incomplete without: Family Time, and Snuggling
M-Marriage: Yes, please!
N-Number of Siblings: 11
O-Oranges or Apples: Oranges
P-Phobias or fears: being this disorganized forever!
Q-Quotes: "Always think of things on an Eternal perspective!"
I kept this quote from trying to stay calm, LOVE IT!
and to repent I will blog
a whole blog of quotes later that I love too.

(hence, above, the fear of being disorganized...ETERNALLY)
R-Reason to Smile: faith and forgiveness
S-Season: Fall
U-Unknown facts about me: I eat fries alone in my car, use air freshener to cover up the smell because I have raised my kids to think fast food is disgusting. Whenever I get caught they say, "EWWWW, whats that smell." "Fast food" I say," gross, huh."
V-Very favorite store(s): Book stores (second hand especially - I love the inscriptions in old books), consignment shops, and antique.
W-Worst habit: Stressing, yelling at my kids. SWEARING, thinking my kids wont understand what i said.

we interrupt this TAG to bring you this:

[thinking of unknown facts, worst habits and things I probably shouldn't share.]

S-9 came home asking what camel toe is.

I won't go into the WAY TO LONG explanation that Mr. B gave him, or the fact that he has been asking for a month, and B has been putting it off; or the advice B was given at work on how to tell his son.

Also, you DON'T want to see the pictures he drew [quick explaination, they were all of animals feet, up to the camels foot/toe, and then a few of...well go ahead, imagine]! yet, you don't want to visualize Mr. B pulling his pants up really high to give him an effective, S-9 will never be the same, example of it.

B, at near the end of this fabulous lesson in words we wish our kids never had to understand, explained that camel toe is like a sign.


Follow me:

He goes on to say, like the loser sign; is the L.

Which brings us to things our kids should never learn from us:

J-7: Oh, I know dad, you mean like when mom holds her three fingers up and says, "Read between the lines." You know how if you take away these two fingers it means......

Dad interrupting him: (how he can respond without busting up is beyond me), Yes, J, exactly. And again, NOT one of the things that you should do just because OTHER PEOPLE (including your MOTHER) do it.

Now back to our TAG!

X-X-ray or Ultra Sound: X-rays and Ultrasounds, too many!
Y-Your favorite food: Mexican, and Vietnamese
Z-Zodiac: Leo

I now TAG:

EVERYONE who will do it.

Let me know when you do so that I can come read about you....

or tell me too if you have already done it.

oh, and for fun...TAKE THE AWARD...

Willing to do the tag....awwww, you should get an award!

Have FUN!

Love the tag. And I love that quote by Shauna too. Eternal Perspective is where it is at. I also think that it is neat that date night is your indulgence. How sweet.

Tracy said...

Thanks for visiting-it does help tremendously to have others reach out to me and support me. What a long strange trip it has been..and it continues but I am trying tso hard to take it a day at a time and find the joy I can in my kids, the holidays and my supporters-but yes chocolate still would help :)
Thanks for following!

Thanks for stopping by it's fun to meet some one so eerily similar, over 10 siblings, same fear, same best friend... we should host a local bloggers Christmas Party, cause we all have so much time and all.

I did this tag a while back. (Do I still get the award?) Yours is awesome. A closet fast-food eater, huh? I could generally do without fries, unless I have a chocolate Frosty to dip them in. Onion rings, though. That's a different story.

Great real-time update! Hilarious!

That is so funny! I'm dreading the day Brayden is old enough to talk and ask questions like that... Thanks for sharing... and giving me a good laugh today.

Love it!
I'll have to try this.

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
