A Few Things.

I'm in a super-random, slightly-more-than-excited mood today. Please pardon the randomness of the following.

I only like the weird flavor Jelly Beans. Like coconut, buttered popcorn, blueberry, black licorice...you get the idea.

Newlywed Husband makes the bed every day. It took me at least a month to learn the "proper way to make the bed" (according to him), and it involves an inordinate amount of fluffing, tucking, hospital cornering...way too much effort before 7am. So he makes the bed. End of story.

Winston is a total mooch. When I cook dinner, he jams his face between my legs and the counter, desperate to catch any morsels that might fall from the countertop. He can also catch food that is thrown at him in his mouth...the record is 13 grapes in a row. It's pretty funny.

I read at warp speed - the last Harry Potter book took me 4 hours flat (all 756 pages). It's a curse, I never get to really enjoy what I read. Magazines take an average of 20 minutes, which makes plane rides nothing short of horrific.

I've been to 3 continents, 9 countries, and 12 states. Strange how they're all multiples of three. Huh.

Approximately 82% of all the people I have ever met have told me I remind them of Karen from Will and Grace. I have brown hair, very similar taste in wardrobe, believe that martini olives are a food group, and have never met a gay man that didn't tell me I looked fabulous. Surprisingly, another frequent comparison is Bridget from The Girls Next Door. I have never been and will never be a blonde, have never dated an octogenarian, and don't have my own tv show (but would totally take one), so this comparison is slightly more baffling.

Newlywed Husband has been informed that if we ever move from the great state of Texas, it will be to California, Miami, or Hawaii. No options for compromise exist for this topic.

I frequently use the word ya'll, and tend to launch into a southern accent rivaled only by those heard on "Dallas" after approximately 2.3 glasses of merlot.

Have a super weekend, I'll be posting rather infrequently...but for sure on Monday :)

Hi! I love reading your blog. You're so clever & charming! Quick little note: I read you give Winston grapes and I wanted to make sure you knew grapes are toxic to dogs & can cause acute renal failure. As little as 7 could be harmful.

I love the strange flavored jelly beans too! Buttered popcorn is my favorite!

I wish MY husband made the bed!! (Then again, thats assuming I'd have to actually get out of the bed before he left for work...). Cute list!

We want to live in Hawaii as well, but we also talked about California too! My southern accent comes out more when I drink too. Weird how that happens.. I think we just get lazy.

I like the licorice ones, too. But, I could totally do without the buttered popcorn...bleh.

I'm from Texas..hopefully, that earns me some points.

And, my daughter has a southern drawl.
