It’s BYOC day! Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer a few questions to get to know each other better and to give our blog brains a break! Copy and paste to your own blog and enjoy!!

1. Alright – forgive me – we’re gonna get a little personal here. I was flipping through my organizer and saw in big bright letters “ANNUAL PHYSICAL DUE” coming up soon. Then I remembered that last year my lady bits doc said that since I haven’t had a bad pap in so many years – that I don’t have to come back for another 3 years if I don’t want to. What the what? Did you guys know that?

No speculum in the vaginulum?

Anywhoozle – it sounds all good but really – do any of you follow this medical rule? Do you go every three years if you’ve never had a bad pap?

I have never had an abnormal pap but I still go every year.  I have two other friends that have had cervical and ovarian cancer with no symptoms until they had an abnormal pap so I just like knowing that everything is all good.

2. If you read, what are you reading right now? Or how about what is your fave music right now?

Don’t really read – would love to – but between work, my daughter etc. I don’t really have time.  However, I love audio books and download them to my ipod to listen at work.  I am listening to the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series.  I tend to really like mysteries.  I also have a guilty pleasure for Twilight and Harry Potter – those I actually read ;)
My music generally goes with my mood and I love everything – generally the Top 40 from every genre.  It usually has to be something that makes me want to dance… Current fav is LMFAO Party Rock..

3. Name some of your favorite smells.

I have a perfume addiction – currently Marc Jacob’s Lola, Bath and Body Works Black Amethyst, Elizabeth Arden Pretty. 
I agree with Draz – love the smell of my daughter’s freshly washed hair. 
My hubby’s scent – Nautica Blue I think.
The Ocean

Side note – Since surgery, I have been turned off or completely grossed out by so many smells – especially food.  Totally similar to being preggo (no ladies, I am sure that is not the issue J)! Anyone else experience this?

4. Showers or baths? Shampoo only or shampoo & conditioner? Shave daily or just when you start feeling and looking like an ape?

Shower in the morning – bath at night… I am a water waster! Shampoo and conditioner – my hair is too thick to go without! I shave every couple of days… I usually wear pants so it makes me lazy in that department.

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

Blogland = awesome!  I am so happy, touched, thrilled and so many other happy words to be a part of this!  I love reading everyone’s blogs and having people comment on mine. It is such a great sense of support!

Real Life – I should be working but instead I am doing BYOC.  Nothing overly exciting going on – my daughter has her last indoor soccer league game tomorrow but other than that hoping for a relaxing weekend! Looking forward to a few weekends off before club starts.


  1. Nothing wrong with Twilight and HP! Guilty pleasures I enjoy as well!

  2. Nothing wrong with doing BYOC instead of working - ha! Thanks for doing the crazy! xoxo

  3. LOVED to Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Series. I understand the author is dead so those 3 are it.
    Alo love the Twilight Series. One Slim Cat talked me into reading them since they are not typcially my thing. I even have a Team Jacob T-shirt that same friend gave me for my birthday last year.
    I wish the smell of food turned me off.

  4. Have fun relaxing this weekend! :)

  5. I've never had an abnormal pap but I go every year so I can get my birth control pills. :) I've never heard of the three year thing.

  6. Hi Elizabeth, I am your newest Follower!! You are doing great!!
