It’s Friday so that means here in Draz Land it’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy!

We answer just a few questions to get to know each other better and to give our blog brains a break!

Copy to your own blog if you wish and ENJOY!

1. How much makeup do you wear daily, how long does it take you and are you loyal to certain brands?

In my quest to girlify myself this past year, I definitely upped the makeup regime.  I use primer, foundation, setting powder, blush, eye shadow, eyeliner, eyelash primer, mascara, & highlighter.  I also sometimes use an eyebrow pencil and highlighter.  It sounds like a lot, but it actually takes less than 7 minutes.  I know because I do it in my office after CrossFit.  :)  I like lipstick, but it wears off me so quick and I'm not great at re-applying.

2. Repeat question: I’m going to pick a person not knowing your relationship with them (or even if there is one) and you try to describe this person in 5 words/short sentences.

Your oldest paternal aunt

(Unfortunately I missed last week when we talked about our maternal grandmother, so I just wanted to say that she was a second mother and the most patient and loving people.  She meant the world to me and I still miss her.  I actually talk to her a lot when I'm praying.  <3)

Tough Love
Family oriented
Good home cooking!

3. Tell me about your first real kiss and how old you were.

I think it was the summer between 7th & 8th grade.  My family was having a stay-cation at the local hotel with an indoor pool.  I met a boy from the neighboring state.  I was 14 and he was 16, I think.  I was REALLY cute, blond and all skater-boy.  As soon as my parents realized I was spending all my time there making out, we packed up and went home.  Heh. 

4. If I gave you $1000.00 and told you that you had to give it to a charity – which charity would you choose and why?

I think I would either choose something having to do with Parkinson's research or I would go in a completely different direction and do something with inner-city kids.  My grandfather had Parkinson's (as well as other members of the family).  It is hard to watch someone's body deteriorate when their brain stays sharp as a tack.  I'm quite scared that will be my fate.

On the other hand, I feel like there are so many kids that just didn't have the opportunities I did.  I would love to have some sort of programs with sports, arts or something that could help kids see what else is out there and maybe give them hope for their future.  We want these kids to act in a certain way and we expect their parents to teach them, but that just isn't realistic.  It ends up being a vicious circle if there is no one there to show them what's on the other side and how to get to it responsibly.

5. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blog land and in real life.

I love my blogger buddies!  I have been word vomiting all over the place about CrossFit and no one is de-following me yet, so that great.  :)  I am getting more and more excited about Chicago!

Real life is good.  I am getting ready for a 6 week timeframe with 5 trips inside, so that should be exhausting.  I'm sure you will hear ALL about it!

I love that you apply makeup after CF! I do the same thing. I'm also inspired by your thoughts of breaking the cycle with kids etc. I never really thought of it that way before because yep, I'm one of those that has always expected the parents to be in charge of their kids. Interesting and you've given me something to think about.
