Keep Austin Weird!

The ladies from Harried Mom of Four, Impulsive Addict, JennyKate's Spot, Seriously Shawn, The Texas Darlings and The V-Spot just spent a fun weekend in Austin, Texas.

Keepin' Austin Weird from Rebecca Darling on Vimeo.
Keep Austin Weird is Austin's slogan... so the six of us tried to do our part!  We shared our senses of humor, a lot of laughs and a ton of off the cuff comments {some too inappropriate to share here}. We decided to write down the funny comments that were said and turn them into a contest for all of our readers. The winner will receive Austin souvenirs, picked out by all six of us.
The contest is very easy. Below you will find six quotes. Match up the quote with who you think said it.  For example, if you think blogger A was the person who said quote #4, your answer is A=4. Leave your match-ups for A-F in ONE comment.

This contest is running on all six blogs, but there is no need to leave multiple entries, but go and visit all of these fab ladies. At the end of the contest, the reader with the most correct answers (or ties for the most correct answers) from each blog will have their name entered in a drawing. The random drawing will be held on Friday June 3rd and the winner will be announced that same day. (Then they can watch their mail box for the six separate little Austin-gifts that will be coming their way...)
Sounds fun, yes?   Here we go...

A. Becca- The Texas Darlings
B. JennyKate- JennyKates Spot
C. Jen-Harried Mom of Four
D. Vivienne- The V-Spot
E. Seriously Shawn
F. Impulsive Addict
Who said it...?
1.} Well clearly he wants to play a game called Just The Tip!
2.} Oh, that's even worse sober!
3.} He looks like a porn-star with that phony-tail and a 9th grade mustache!
4.} I'd rather be juvenile than an old fart!
5.} I think I just peed on my shoes a little.
6.} I don't know how to knick-knack my house so I don't know how to knick-knack me.

Have fun and good luck!

We Want To Know Wednesday : Musts


I am linking up once again with Shawn, Impulsive, Mama, and Janette for their nosey-azz questions.

This week, Shawn came up with these fabulous "MUST" questions:

1.} What must you do before you go to bed at night?  I MUST take my make-up off and brush my teeth, AND I must read on my Kindle or iPhone.  I can't go to sleep until I's like a soothing lullaby.

2.} What is one thing you must snack on at the theater?  Um, not really any MUSTS, but I do love Hot Tamales!

3.} Before going on vacation what must you do?  I MUST have a clean house.  I HATE coming home from vacay to a dirty house.  Not happening!

4.} What is one thing you must do every day?  So many, where to start?  I don't know how to pick just one.  Pray, drink coffee, interact in social networks, give Isaiah lots of hugs and kisses, laugh (TOTAL MUST), be a dork ('cause I can't help myself), take vitamins, call my granny...

5.} Is there something you do that must be done in a particular order? Yeah, lots of things, but I'll use showering for example...I always always always start with my hair, shampoo it, wash my face, rinse my hair and my face all at the same time, put conditioner in my hair, lather up, wash, shave, and then rinse my hair and everything else.  In that order.  No variations.



Friday Confessional 05.20

I confess that there was a creepy repair guy fixing our air conditioner at our office last week and he kept staring at me.  So, I did this.

Worked like a charm.  Problem solved.  Full-size Edward has SO many uses.

He fixed our A/C in record time.

I confess that every time I see the Magnum Ice Cream commercial I think of condoms.  Do you think that was the marketing strategy they were going for?

I confess that while you're reading this, I'm roadtrippin' with Impulsive and we're on our way to meet up with Seriously Shawn, Becca from The Texas Darlings, Vivienne from The V Spot, and Jen from Harried Mom of 4!  I really can't put into words just HOW excited I am to be meeting all of these lovelies in PERSON.  Seriously.  It's too much.  I'm so stoked...I feel like dropping every 90's adverb in my's the bomb...the's totally going to rock.

I also confess that I posted over at The RHOK archive worth re-reading!

Hope you all have super fabulous Fridays!!

We Want To Know Wednesday : Week 5


I'm linking up once again for my mid-week-blogging-fix with Impulsive, Shawn, Mamarazzi, and Jannette for WWTKW!

{1} If you could choose a Super Power, what would it be?

I'd be invisible.  It'd be way cool.

{2} What would be your first frivolous purchase if you were awarded a million dollars, tomorrow?

A one-way plane ticket to Europe...return date TBD.

{3} What would be the hardest current luxury for you to give up?

I'm pretty fond of indoor bathrooms and electricity.  I also am not in favor of giving up my iPhone, Internet, or satellite television (including the DVR...we're BFFs).

I know that's more than one, but my blog, my rules.

{4} If you were given a choice between being given great wisdom and great wealth, which would you choose?

I'll take the wisdom.  Thanks.

{5} If you were to be stranded on a deserted island for 100 days what 5 THINGS would you pack?
  1. A hammock - I don't like sleeping on the ground
  2. My life-size Edward Cullen (I can't let LBB one-up me)
  3. My Kindle (LOADED to the brim with downloads)
  4. A solar power source for said Kindle
  5. A knife and LOTS of matches (I know that's two, but I had to squeeze Edward in there)


We Want To Know Wednesday : Week 4


I'm linking up once again for my mid-week-blogging-fix with Impulsive, Shawn, Mamarazzi, and Jannette for WWTKW!

This week's questions are brought to us by the lovely Jannette from Est 5.26.07 ~ The Johanson Journey.

She wants to know...

1. What game show have you always thought you could be on and totally WIN!

Hmmm...I think I would do pretty good on the Singing Bee, as long as they stick to 90's hip-hop/rap, hairbands, and country.

2. Do you have a tattoo(s)? What are they and what made you chose them? If not, would you get one, yes/no/why?
Holy shiz.  This is where I lose followers.
Wellllll...yes, I have tattoos.  3 of them.  They are:
1. A cresent moon and two stars on my left foot.  A blue star for Michael (his birthstone is a sapphire) and a red star for Isaiah (his birthstone is a garnet)

2. The phrase "frequently dazzled" with an apple and "sparkles" on my left side (on my rib area)...the saying is from Twilight and the apple of course is also from Twilight...and the sparkles, well...from the sparkly vampires of Twilight.

3. A Mockingjay on my back between my shoulder blades...the Mockingjay is a fictional bird from the Hunger Games Trilogy.  If you wanna read more about why I picked it, you can read THIS.

3.  What is your favorite piece of jewelry that you own? 

My wedding ring.  It's the piece of jewelry I've had the longest.  I don't buy expensive jewelry, so it's the most valuable thing I wear.

BUT I also really love this cuff bracelet and I wear it more than I should.

4. What is your driving pet peeve(s)?

People driving slow in the fast lane.  Pisses me off.

5. What was your favorite sitcom growing up that you wish was still on?
From the 80's - The Cosby Show.  Bill is hilarious.
From the 90's - Seinfeld.  We still watch the re-runs and used to have every episode recorded to VHS tapes.

In Your Neck Of The Woods: A Gaggle of Geese and a Crazy Man


Things have been a little stressful in my neck of the woods.

My Granny is in the hospital and I've been staring at a lot of white walls lately. (prayers appreciated)

But last week, I was out at lunch and caught this on my iPhone...

Do you see the gaggle of geese?  I think they were wanting a Big Mac and a few Happy Meals.  I tried to get closer, but the one leading the pack hissed at me.  I took that as my cue to mind my own biznass.
Hope you all are having a great week so far!♥

Friday Confessional 05.06

Being the (wannabe) gangsta that I am...I've had some brushes with the law lately. 
I'm here to confess.

I confess that while out running errands for the office the other day I was feeling a little spunky.  The sun was shining.  I was wearing some CA-ute new sandles.  Warren G was pumpin' through my speakers.  loudly.  I had my window rolled down and I was sitting at the stop light.  There was a cop sitting in the QT parking lot across from me and I looked at him and did this...

I confess that as I pulled away from the stop light I kinda expected him to pull out behind me and pull me over, but he didn't.

I confess that I WAS pulled over the other day for driving like a Cullen.  87 in a 75.  That's not so bad, right?  AND my tag was expired.  Ooops.  I didn't know.  I'm serious.  He let me go with a warning.  Whew.

What do you confess?  Hop on over to Mamarazzi's and link up...spill yer guts!  It makes for good bloggin'!


We Want To Know Wednesday

Fulfilling my promise to Impulsive...and linking up for the third installment of WWTKW hosted by Impulsive Addict, Seriously Shawn, Mamarazzi, and Janette!
1. If money didn't matter, where would your perfect vacation take place? Briefly describe. Hmmm...a European Vacation.  Not like the Griswold's, but like JennyKate's European Vacation.  I would need a few weeks and I would rent a yacht and travel around the coast of France.  Perhaps, travel into Italy and visit the location where they filmed the Volturi/Italy scenes for New Moon.  Take a train to London and buy some old books.  Stop by Ireland and hang out in a pub for a day or two. 
2. What's a bad habit that you have {or ha} that is/was hard to break? being a fatty.  hard habit to break.

3. If you weren't on a diet or counting calories, what would you like to have for dinner tonight? a big HEAPING bowl of pasta with alfredo sauce and LOTS of parmesean cheese...and some bread...and a slice of cheesecake...and a captain and coke.

4. If you had the chance to interview anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be and what's one question that you would ask? Rob. Duh.  I would ask him if he was free for the night. ;)
5. Describe yourself in 6 words. bookworm-coffee-drinker-quirky-talkative-funhaver
