Answer Me This {Vol. 6}

Kendra is taking in France, so Haley is hosting Answer Me This! 

1.  What's the scariest thing that's ever been in your backyard?

An angry, trapped raccoon.  It got stuck, I have no idea what happened after that...not my department.  We also once had a mama raccoon and 5 babies pull off the vent over our dormant chimney and make themselves at home.  The chimney base is next to the laundry and it was pretty creepy.

Animal control specialists had to come and tranquilize/kill them (once they get into a house, they keep doing it and they're dangerous).  I was listening to the guys work and, "reload, she's still climbing" was said.  That job is not my calling...could you imagine an angry raccoon coming at you while you try to tranquilize it?!?!

2.  Beards.  Thumbs up or thumbs down?

Thumbs in the middle?  I like beards for about 2-4 weeks, then Hubby's beard starts to gets a little out of hand for my tastes.  He's cute either way, but the 2 week look is probably my favorite:

The girls are beard fans.

3.  If stuff breaks, can you fix it?

If it's not mechanical or electronic, yes.  I can fix clothes, walls, splint bones, lots of random life skills, but don't ask me to fix your computer or car. *well, you can ask, but I won't*

4.  What was your first car?

Pontiac Grand Am GT.  I bought it myself when I was 19.

Not mine, but looks just like it.  Source.

5.  How often do you eat out?

Until the last year or so, it would've been about once or twice a year.  Now that finances are a little easier, about once or twice a month.  

6.  Why is your hair like that?

Really good genetics.  It's naturally red.  It's naturally curly.  No, I don't wish my hair was straight, or blonde, or brunette.  I like it just as it is.  It's awesome....and I have nothing to do with that.  I put very little effort into my hair, it just grows out of my head like that.  

It's okay, you can kinda hate me for it.....everyone that isn't struggling to lose 80lbs of weight is getting a little envy from me :) 

*blogging with my sister-in-law about our weight loss journeys over at Losing It with My Sisters.*

Thanks for hosting Haley!


  1. I love your hair! It's similar to one of my sister's hair and I'm always telling her I'm going to cut it off and make a wig from it. Which is totally not creepy.

    Your girls look good with beards. They must get it from their dad. :)

    1. Haha! Micaela - I had a woman at my grade school who used to tell me the same thing when I was a kid. I never really thought it was weird because she wore weave anyway, and that's how they get weave, from other people's hair!

      They definitely all rock the beard :)

  2. You do have great hair! Does you hair get frizzy? If so, what do you do...I'm looking for hair tips!

    1. Thanks! Yes, I get frizzy hair. Smoothing shampoo/conditioner help, I also use either Frizz Ease hair serum or Pantene firm hold mousse every day :)


I welcome positive, supportive sharing in this community. God bless!
