Blog Swap Awesomeness with Five Seconds From Crazy

Hey readers! I'm going to introduce you to a new blog that I've been stalking following. It's called Five Seconds from Crazy.

Seriously, I like, LOVE this blog. Lesley is awesome, she's one of those chicks who says what's on her mind, and honesty like that is refreshing. I'll read a post of hers, and I think "Oh my gosh, I was totally just thinking that!". From posts like this, where her 7 year old daughters explains what a period is to her 9 year old brother, to easy to follow tutorials. If your home involves crafting between all the times of craziness, like mine does, you'll feel right at home.

Seriously, love it. Can I say I love it again without sounding like a crazy obsessed fan? Prolly not. Ah well. It's my blog and I'll obsess if I want to!

First of all, before I blab all over Jennifer's page, let me say, " YAY! " I am so thrilled to be here and feel really honored that Jen even considered doing this. 

I have got to be honest. I'm totally intimidated by this chick. 
Um hi...she's a model? Um hi...she's uber crafty? Um hi! She's been in the Air Force and could probably kick my ass with one quick smack to the back of the head!

Ok, ok. We all dig Jen.
Let's talk about Lesley! 

Jen had the fabulous idea ( there I go talking about Jen again ) to give each other questions to answer about ourselves. I personally think this is a really fun idea because I love getting to know intimate details about strangers. Seriously. Don't buy me a new iphone for Christmas. Give me one hour alone in your house so that I can snoop through your intimates. 
Now that's a Christmas!

Do you prefer giving or receiving gifts?

 I'm not gonna lie. I love receiving gifts. Come on! Every Christmas I eat dinner, sip my wine and act like a classy lady. But, inside, I am screaming like a five year old, spoiled brat, " Give me presents! " 
Don't get me wrong. I worked hard on creating handmade gifts for my peeps, and I love it when someone really loves something that I've given them, but I am a getter....not a giver.

What are your 3 physical features you get complimented on often?

Oh, wow. There are so many. How do I choose? 
Let me think....
Get real. I am going to struggle to think of 3.
My eyes. I have massive eyes. And I play them up a lot. 
My boobs. 
Oh wait, are we counting things my hubby loves? Yes? 
Then boobs.
My hair. It's thick and apparently that's a good thing.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

I can answer this no problem. Driving texters! Arrg.. That car in front of me who is seconds away from running into oncoming traffic. Then I pull up next to them at a light and see the driver's stupid thumbs all over her blackberry. Um hi, I hate you.
Oooh, also, cashiers that whine to you about how much their day is sucking. Just bag my groceries please. I do not need to listen to you complain about the guy who came through half an hour ago and smells like B.O. Believe me, I can still smell him.

Do you have tattoos or piercings? If yes, how many and where are they?

Yes, I have two tatts that are pretty small and not a big deal at all. 
This one is on the back of my neck. I regret this one. I do love it for what I wanted at that time, but now I wish I'd waited and went to someone else. The dude talked me into getting it done to look " Scratchy and like I had it done in the jungle somewhere ". Yeah.
And I was like, " Yeah! That's sounds so primitive! " And, here's the kicker: It is HALF of the Japanese symbol for serenity. Half. Cuz I'm a total hipster dummy and I was like," I'll get the other half at some point in my life when I feel I have obtained serenity. It's more organic that way! "
Errr, yeah. 

This one is on my right shoulder. The red star represents my oldest son, the green my middle son, the blue my youngest son and the pink, my girl. The big gold star in the middle is my husband and I am the lines holding us all together. Awww!
  Oh, and I have my ears pierced.

Have you ever had a stalker?

I had a blog stalker very recently! 
Some chick commented on some post I did that she liked my blog. I clicked on her name to check out her blog and it was EXACTLY the same. 
I'm not talking same theme, same layout. 
I mean, it was the same title. Same posts. Photos of me and my family and my house.
Know what I mean? 
I contacted Blogger and her sight was promptly removed. But, what the crap?
Why? I suck. Doesn't she know?

Least favorite feature?

Easy. My teeth. I have a love / hate relationship with my mouth.
I have a space between my top teeth and it bugs me like you wouldn't believe. 
At the same time I love it. It sets me apart and it's part of the way God made me.
My husband and everyone I know tell me that it's no big deal and they never notice it. But you know how it is. When you know it's there it bugs you.
When I was a kid we were po' people and didn't have dental insurance let alone money to pay for braces.
Then, as an adult, you just never consider putting that much money towards something to feed your vanity when there are bills to pay and mouths to feed.
But, if I ever come across ten grand on the street it's going straight to my mouth, baby!

Well, I suppose that's it. T'was fun, yes?
Spank you very much, Jen, for letting me verbally attack your blog. I had a blast!

And since I know you all love me and are dying to see my answers to the same questions, you'll have to hop on over to Lesley's blog! Okay, maybe not hop. But go quickly. You won't regret it.
