Introducing....Bring Your Own Crazy (B.Y.O.C.)

Several of the bloggers that I follow answer questions to get to know each other better and I thought this would be fun to start doing!  So here is my first BYOC...

It’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer some questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blog brains a break. Copy and paste to your own blog and ENJOY!

1. Do you make your bed every day? Tell us about or show us a picture of your bed comforter?

I like to make my bed every day, but most days this doesn't happen.  I work from home so sometimes I like to sit on my bed and work and it's more comfy to be under the covers, haha! If I leave the house for the day or have company over I'll make it for sure.  You happened to catch me on a good day today because my roommates parents came over for a visit so I had to make my bed.  Here is a picture of my bed today.  Coincidentally it looks a lot like my blog, haha!

2. Johnny Cash or Elvis? Thin crust pizza or deep dish? Coke or Pepsi? Beer or wine or neither?
Elvis (but I like both)
I love pizza!  Both kinds!  Yesterday I saw 2 pizza delivery cars on my way to hang out with friends and I was craving it so bad!  I haven't had any pizza since surgery and I'm sure deep dish will be out, but I might try some thin crust for a special treat sometime.  What is everyone's experience eating pizza with the lap-band?

Neither.  I'm a Dr. Pepper girl, but unfortunately I've given it up. :(
Wine, but I like beer too.  I haven't had either since surgery, but I might have one every now and then.
3. I recently went through my list of blogs I follow and was at my limit so I unfollowed bloggers who haven’t blogged in at least 6 months. I want to start following some more new blogs. Who’s your fave lately? Funniest? Most inspiring? Can you link them for me??
Well I just started blogging this week so everyone is new to me.  I am so happy to be a part of this community and thankful for all the support.  Here are a couple of the ladies that have reached out to me since I started my blog.
Amandajustawallflower, Cat, Kristina, Ronnie, Lap Band Gal, Beth Ann, Lisa, Amanda, and Darlin1.

4. Repeat question: Summarize your week in blog land and in real life.

Wow, what a week this has been!  Started my blog, found TONS of amazing blogs, and met so many great people.  This whole blog world is new to me and I 'm still learning all the time, but I am LOVING it so far.  Real life for me this week has been great!  Gave myself some goals this week and I was able to achieve them, lost 2.4 pounds, had some fun times with family and friends and attended my first Lap-Band support group.  I'm so motivated to lose the weight and achieve all of the goals that I have set.  Last week was kind of hard for me, so I'm so happy that this was a great week.


  1. I'm a Dr. Pepper girl too!! I love it, I miss it but luckily I like the Diet Dr. Pepper better so it's so not bad when I do indulge. I love deep dish pizza too and sadly I haven't had it in a VERY long time. Love your bed too, so pretty. Something I would pick out for my own room for sure. I'm super jealous that you work from home that is something that I would like to do myself VERY badly.

  2. Your room looks EXACTLY like your blog! I was thinking that before I even read it on there! haha That's cool.

  3. Your room is so pretty!! And yes, it does look like your blog. Me thinks you like black, white and pink. *grin*
