BYOC

It’s Friday so you know what that means here in Care Bear Land (aka Drazland)!

Yup, it’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy!!!!!

We answer a few questions in an effort to get to know each other better and
to give our blogging brains a break.

Copy to your own blog and enjoy!

1. I’m going to pick a person in your life – not knowing if you have a good or bad, existing or non-existent relationship with them – and your mission is to pick 5 words or traits or thoughts to describe them.

Your paternal grandmother.

Cold
Dementia
Alone
Family
Fun times at the farm

(Yeah, not my favorite of the grandparents.  But she did try to make sure we spent time together as a family which I will never forget.)

2. What’s your all time favorite color to paint your nails? And your toes?

Nails – If they aren't chewed off, it is a victory.

Toes – I love bright colors like hot pink, red, coral, blue, purple...BRIGHT!

3. Do you get along with your parents well?

Yes.  I talk to them almost everyday, sometimes multiple times a day.  When something great/bad/different happens, they are the first people I think to call.  I constantly thank God for their presence in my life.  A few years ago, for a few brief (endless) moments, I thought I lost my dad.  It brings tears to my eyes as I type this.  It was a false alarm and I vowed that I would NEVER take them for granted.

I love you mamacita and daddy!

4. Speaking of rainbows – rank the rainbow colors in the order you prefer.

Pink (um yes – in my world – this color is in the rainbow)
Blue
Purple
Green
Red
Yellow

Orange

This actually would change daily depending on my mood, I think.  I LOVE color.  Although, weirdly, I'm wearing black and white today.  That isn't my norm.

5. Repeat question. How was your week in real life and in blog land this week?

Blogland - is positively delightful.  In less than 24 hours after finding out my wonderful roomie Kerri wasn't going to be staying after all, I was all roomied up with new peeps.  What amazing friends I have found!!

Real life - I ran a mile in 11:18 today.  And I'm going to see the Smurfs.  Real life freaking rocks!

HUGS!

I love to see you're so close with your parents, that's super important. <3

And I still can't believe you said 11:18 mile was slow. Glad you're seeing how amazing that number is now. :)
