50 Shades of Casey

I really really wanted to get a post up today, because, let's face it, it's about time.  

I'm copying another blog I came across - answering 50 random questions about myself - enjoy.

(If you want to complete the same questions on your blog, let me know and I'll link to your post!) 

1. What is your best friend's Mom's name? Darla

2. Where is the weirdest place you have a mole?  I have a few - but they may just be big freckles. The one I think is the weirdest is under my arm. Like, in my arm pit. I'm always afraid I'm gonna get it one day with the razor....

3. Who was the hottest teacher you ever had?  I can honestly say I never ever had a crush on any of my teachers.

4. Have you ever made out in a movie theater? Yeah, my first kiss with James was in the movies. 

5. What body part do you wash first?  Head and shoulders, knees and toes (knees and toes), Head and shoulders, knees and toes (knees and toes), eyes and ears and a mouth and a nose, head and shoulders, knees and toes (knees and toes).  That's all the parts right?

6. Do you hover over the toilet in public bathrooms? Depends.  I would like to hover all the time, but I have really really bad balance and falling on the floor or into the toilet in a public restroom seems way worse than the alternative.

7. What's the strangest talent you have?  Hm, I don't consider myself very talented - I can't think of anything strange either. 

8. Do you have an innie or an outtie? I have an innie of a completely normal depth. 

9. What's your favorite flavored Pringles? I like BBQ and Sour Cream and Onion

10. Have you ever been tied up? Not that I can think of. I used to tie the kids I babysat up though. Don't freak out, they totally loved it. Especially when I put them in the closet! I'm serious, they loved it. 

11. What was the last thing you ever got grounded for? telling my parents I was staying with a friend and really I was with James. I think this was before they ever met him too. Bad, I know. I think I was 16

 12. Do you parallel park or drive around the block? I don't ever go anywhere that requires parallel parking. 

13. Have you ever had two dates in one night?   No, but that sounds like fun

14. How many times have you been cussed out?   Maybe a few times in my days.

15. Which shoe do you put on first?  I really didn't know the answer to this (though I assume the right one) so I took off my shoes and tried to put them back on to figure it out, but then I was thinking too much about the whole thing, so I couldn't really trust that what was happening was natural.  So I took off my shoes again and walked a little down the hallway, so I could approach my shoes in a more normal fashion - I think right first....but I could be wrong.

17. Have you ever been to a gay bar?  Once, after prom in Galveston. It was the most fun I've ever had at a bar - and margaritas completely paid for by someone else was cool too! Btw, I was only 17. This could have been another story about being grounded, but the parents never found out. 

18. Girls  This is not a question.  Just want to have fun. 

19. Is there one thing all of your love interests have had in common? Seeing as I have been dating James since I was 15, I really have no other love interests to compare to. 

20. Did you French kiss before you were 16? Yeah, I kissed a boy in the 6th grade

21. Have you ever been cow-tipping or snipe-hunting?  No.  Cow-tipping is mean.  How would you like if if you were just sleeping in your own bed and then suddenly you woke up on the floor with a couple of drunk cows hovering over you, mooing in amusement.   You would feel scared right?

22. Who is the last person you usually think about before you fall asleep? Maybe my kids. I always check the baby monitor right before I fall asleep to make sure they are still in their beds. 

23. Have you ever had a poem or a song written about you? Nah, not cool enough for that.

24. If you had to choose to not ever wash your bed sheets again or not wash your bath towel ever again, which would you rather not wash?  Ew. Neither.

25. Have you ever found anything in your parents' bedroom that was questionable? Oh God, I don't even want to talk about this!

26. What was your childhood nickname? Sissy  or Casey Jay

27. When is the last time you played the air guitar?    Totally played the air guitar Friday night at the Astros game. The cute little girl a few seats over got on the big screen, but not me. 

28. Have you ever peeked in the opposite sexes locker room? Not on purpose. 

29. What's the weirdest thing you have done while driving?   Change clothes while driving down the freeway. Or, if I'm having a bad day, I get in the car and scream at the top of my  lungs as hard and as loud as I can. When I open my eyes I see stars. Then I laugh hysterically at the thought of me doing this and what if someone saw me, I must look like an idiot. Seriously, it makes me feel so much better! I laugh for at least 5 minutes.

30. Have you ever bitten your toenails? No, can't say that I have.

31. How do you eat your cookie? Weird question I bite it.

32. When working out at the gym, do you wear a belt? No, nothing I do at the gym is that hardcore that I need a belt. 

33. Name something you do when you're alone that you wouldn't do in front of others. I turn on music and pretend like I'm filming music videos, choreographed dance moves and all.

36. How many drinks does it take before you get drunk? I'm a drinker. Probably 6 beers and I start getting extra funny! (or at least I think I'm funny Ha!)

37. Have you ever sniffed an animal's butt? Not on purpose if I have. 

38. How often do you clean out your ears? Every single morning when I get out of the shower. Wet ears are weird to me. I can't concentrate with wet ears.

39. Do you scrunch or fold your toilet paper? Depends if the roll is on the holder like its supposed to be or not. If it is on the holder, it usually gets scrunched up. If it's sitting on the top of the holder I kind of roll it onto and over my fingers....that sounds weird, right? 

40. About how many times a day do you pick a wedgie?   My wedgies are usually non pickable if you know what I mean. 

41. Do you have any strange phobias? I'm actually like terrified of clowns or masks or creepy makeup on a person's face. I like people to look normal. 

42. Have you ever stuck a foreign object up your nose? Yeah, I had to go to the ER once to have some rock pebbles removed. I won the "How many rocks can you put in you nose contest" though. SCORE!

43. What is the stupidest thing you've ever done at a bar? When I'm drinking and at a bar, I forget that other people can see me as I think I'm Brittany Spears dancing away on the dance floor. These are not my proudest moments, but boy do I have fun. This video below is hilarious. I hope I'm this cool if I ever get pulled over for drinking and driving. 

44. Have you ever been dared to do something you totally regretted?  I usually always chose Truth 

45. Have you ever called your love interest by an ex's name? Definitely not.

46. Have you caught a guy/girl farting while on a date? I'm married, so, you know, yes.  He can't blame it on the dogs while we are on dates.  

47. Have you ever played naked Twister? Definitely not.  That sounds like a horrible idea!

48. Have you ever been drunk at work? Yes, once I had a terrible cough and apparently I was driving my boss nuts! He called me into his office, poured me something brown out of his cabinet and told me "drink this shit and shut the hell up!!!" I swear, I didn't cough one more time that day....but I could barely see my computer screen clearly. It was a good day. Everyone should have a boss like mine!! (It sounds harsh, but he loves me.)

49. Have you ever found your date's/lover's brother or sister attractive? My husband and his brother are practically twins so yeah, I think Jason is attractive. 

50. Do you want to bring sexy back? um, I'll pass.

Wow, so that ended up being a really long post.  I'm really impressed if you've made it this far.  I apologize for boring you to tears.

Lone Star Yogi Bear Park

We had such a great time on our Vacation at Yogi Bear Park! If you live in Texas and have never been, you should make plans to go while your kids are still little! 

My mom rented us a cabin that slept 8 and it was a neat place. Much better than sleeping in a tent. My aunt and uncle, cousins and their kids rented a cabin too so we had lots of family there to share our time with!

Fact: This was my first time to "camp" and this was luxury camping if I do say so myself! 

Levi was a little young and needy and someone always had to hang out at the cabin while he napped (sometimes twice a day) but we all still had a blast!! 

These pictures I took came from my phone, sorry about the quality, but with the water park and the bazillion water guns around the park, my good camera never left the bag. **These are all repeats from instagram, if you follow me there** (Oh well)

 They had an outdoor theater and every night showed a movie - the kids LOVED it!

 The water park was amazing! We spent most of our time here! Cori rode the big slide by her self at least 20 times. She was so brave! 

 This little guy woke up every morning at 7am so we spent our mornings on the porch playing until everyone else woke up. Notice the rash around his mouth? I had to call and argue with a nurse at his pedi office. She kept saying that there was nothing they could do for him and to put neosporin on it. It was definitely infected in a few spots from being irritated. I finally told her to have the Dr. on call call me and what do you know, he prescribed an antibiotic and I was able to pick it up at the local CVS. (he told me NOT to put neosporin on it) I was disappointed in his nurse and I let him know. I have never had issues before this. They are usually so nice when you call. It was a Saturday, but still, I expected more. His face was pretty clear by the next day after starting the antibiotic.

The grown ups had fun in the pool too!! I can't wait for next summer when we can go back. I think Levi will be better next time. 

Speaking of Levi, he will be ONE tomorrow. Ah!!
