Blog love, babies, the great debate, scents to avoid, and plastic surgery. Sounds like a party!

It's that time again! We Want To Know Wednesday - I'm linkin' up, people, and you should too! Head over to Impulsive Addict, Mamarazzi, Janette, or Shawn's blog and link away, friends!

1-Name five of your favorite new blogs that you're reading.
Welllll......"new"...? I've been feeling kinda bogged down lately...which means I haven't been taking on many new I'll go with "relatively new", yeah?

2-When you were a young child or teenager, did you have an idea of how many children you wanted and what their names would be? Did you follow through on your ideas?
The names have changed over the years....and so has the number. For the longest time I only wanted two kids. A boy and a girl. Now I hope to have three. I've got one so far and I'm crossing my fingers that God will bless me with a couple more over the next few years! (you nosey, nosey reader--I know what you're thinking! We aren't "trying" at the moment, but we're thinking maybe in a year we'll go for number two)
As for names....that's just funny. When I was a child, I wanted to name my boy that I was just SURE to have Bradley and my absolute GIVEN girl Keirsten. 
You don't really think about the possibility of not being able to have children when you are a child dreaming up your future wedding with Prince Charming and the family that would unquestionably follow. 
Needless to say, I've changed my mind on the names. (No offense to anyone with those names--my taste has just changed over the years) I really wanted to name a little girl Candace Jane (my sister's name is Candace and we would call my daughter Jane) and I could never settle on a boy name. My son has four names (went with hispanic/latin(o?) tradition and gave him two last names and one ended up having to be a second middle name and....yeah....). His first two are Gabriel [have loved that name for a while] Thomas [family name]. 
Anyway, I want two more. If I could design it the way I wish for it to be, I would have a girl next (whose name is absolutely concrete, but I won't tell! Don't want anyone stealing it!) and then a boy (whose name is also concrete and will not be shared....). We have a secondary girl and boy name in case we don't get a boy AND a girl (you know--if we get two more boys or two girls....and this is, of course, arrogantly assuming we'll be blessed enough to have two more children...)

3-What is the silliest thing you fight with someone about? Ummm...I'm a debater, so I "fight" with a lot of people about silly things...just for the sake of arguing. Most recently, it has been the way my husband blows his nose. I'm not kidding. The man blows his nose in the loudest, most obnoxious way possible. It drives me CRAZY. He has woken up the baby several times when blowing his nose. Gabriel actually associates that sound with "Daddy". He knows if he hears this loud, weird, annoying sound, Daddy is somewhere nearby. I could scream every time I hear it. Makes me want to throw something at him.

4-What is your favorite scent that others may not find very nice? I like the smell of a match that has just burnt out. I also like (this one's the weird/gross one) the smell of burnt-out cigarettes. Ew, I know....

5-What are your thoughts on plastic surgery? I think a lot of people go overboard with it. I think God gave you the body(parts) that you were meant to have. He also granted the agency to choose to change it. I think it's fine unless you use plastic surgery excessively to attempt to achieve perfection - IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN! When I'm done having kids, I told McKay that I want a Mommy Makeover! He says I'm a trooper and I deserve it (wahoo!). I would get a tummy tuck to get rid of this extra stretched out prego belly skin and a boob job. Not the way you might think though.... I have been well-endowed in the breast area and I kind of hate it. It's too much. Without sharing my exact size for all the world to see, let me just say that Victoria's Secret doesn't sell my cup size. How do you like them apples melons? It sucks. So I want to get a reduction, and then pump those babies up with some implants to make them cute and perky again (because heaven knows they'll probably be sad and droopy after a few more kids....). I would like to head back down to the C cup range.....



  1. Girl, the matches I can get on baord with, the cigs... not so much. HA

    Blowing the snoz and waking the baby, huh?? Oh my....

    Have a FAB day!

  2. Though I like that match smell, it always makes me paranoid that something may have just caught fire!

  3. Love the Vlog-- my hubs would NEVER let me put him on camera or on my blog for that matter! You should have had him blow his nose so we can hear it. hah!

    Love the military family background and awesome for the parade ya'll were able to participate in!!

    burnt out ciggs? really? hah...

  4. I hope to have a couple more babies as well but I'm pretty sure i'm older than you by a few years. We'll see what happens but my ovaries hate me. So good luck to you and the baby making! ;)

    I love that you fight over him blowing his nose. My husband hacks a lot. He does it every morning while brushing his teeth. iT makes me want to hit him in his throat.

    Thanks for linking up and I LOOOOVE you for putting me in your top 5! That made my day.

    PS. The first two are in my top as well.

  5. I like the smell of a freshly lit cigarette.

  6. I think you won't be angry if I'll take some of your ideas and post them into my blog. kamagra oral
