Truthful Tuesday

This is kind of a cop out for a real blog post but at least it's something right? Maybe you'll even find it entertaining...or not. It's all I've got, take it or leave it my friends. :)
Truthful Tuesday...the keepin' it real edition.

*I'm hopelessly addicted to these 2 beauty items. Please set up an intervention or try them for yourself. And yes that is a marijuana leaf on the bottle of lotion. Why do you think I like it so much? Ha! Ha!

*I have a healthy, respectable crush on this guy after seeing Dear John this past weekend. Having just read the book I was somewhat disapointed in the film adaptation of it, but getting to see this guy on the big screen for the duration of the movie was worth the price of admission. Well, that AND being on a date night with my true love GI Joe.

*I hate talk radio with a passion. I especially despise Michael Savage, the sound of his voice gives me instant Terets. This is interesting given that my husband is a bit of a talk radio nerd and listens to talk radio constantly. Lucky for me I don't have to listen to it because he'll tell me everything (he thinks) I need to know, whether I want to know it or not.

*My kids, ages 10, 8, and 6 still call me Mommy. Not Mom but Mommy and I LOVE it. I hope they never make the switch. I don't care if it is weird when they are big burly teenagers (hopefully just the boys are that way), I will still love it.

*Every day when I get home from work, one of the first things I do is light at least one candle. The scent depends on what time of year it is. Ex: currently burning Macintosh Spice. At the first sign of spring we'll switch over to the "clean" scents. I'm weird I know.

*I've recently become addicted to Celebrity Rehab w/ Dr. Drew. Is that an oxymoron or what? I think Dr. Drew needs to have rehab for addicts of his Celebrity Rehab show.

*My shoe size increased half a size w/ each kid I bore. I now have Shaq sized feet.

*I could eat sushi every day for the rest of my life and never tire of it. I really really LOVE sushi. I also love that I got GI Joe hooked on it. Something about my backwoods boy loving something as seemingly sophisticated as sushi makes me innately happy.

*I've always been a tad bit competitive and also very good at trash talking, however typically lacked the athletic ability to back it up at least in sports. Now board games..BRING IT. Anyway, It's been really hard for me now that the boys are in sports and doing well, NOT to succumb to being one of "those" parents who gets a little too into it, gets overly competitive and sucks the fun right out of it for the kids. So as much as I'd like to yell, "DESTROY THAT LITTLE SHRIMP! PEN HIM! MAKE HIM CRY!" during their wrestling meets, I refrain. However, when someone starts downplaying my kids' accomplishments and trash talking about MY BABIES there is no refraining, they will see a fighting side of me and probably get their feelings hurt. Don't say I didn't warn you. P.S. My sons are tougher than yours. Oh oops, that just slipped, hate when that happens. ;)

And that's all for this edition of Truthful Tuesday. Fascinating I know. Have a great Tuesday!


  1. Hey Holly I just wanted to share that my 14 year old son still calls me MOMMY!!! LOL!!! In fact a couple of months ago some of the guys in youth group were giving him a hard time about it and one asked "why do you still call her mommy?" his response made me cry..."because she is my mommy!" and he said it in a matter of fact tone!! LOVE IT!!
