A-Z & Never Have I Ever

 Hi, y'all!

My bff Whitney posted
one of these last week and I loved reading it; she cracks me up and I enjoyed laughing at all her witty answers. So much so that I decided to do one myself!
 Love you, Whit :)
A=Available or Married?
Married to my best friend, Zach. Pretty much the sweetest, funniest, rascalliest, most creative guy I know (I'm not biased at all, either).
B = Book?
This is a hard one because I love to read but haven't had to time even crack open a book since Bear was born last November. I'm obsessed with all things Pride & Predjudice, so one of the last books I read was Definitely Not Mr. Darcy by Karen Doornebos. You really must read this book; it's excellent! Witty, light, charming...truly a great read.
C = Cake or Pie?
Oh man, this is a hard one. Are cookies an option? Just kidding. I love anything and everything sweet, but I'd have to go with pie. Ever since Bear was born I've had a serious pie addiction; it's kind of ridiculous. There are five pies in our freezer right now and two in the fridge. Someone come help me eat them, please!
D = Drink of choice?
Diet Dr. Pepper or my grandma's sweet tea
E = Essential start to your day?
Sleeping 'til noon. YEAH RIGHT! I wish. Kissing and cuddling Bear, which trumps sleeping in any day.
F = Favorite Color
Has always been pink and purple, but now I really like gray, too. Is that boring?

  G = Game to play or watch?
play:golf/bowling, watch:basketball (go Jazz!)

 H = Height?
5'3 1/2 (I'll take every 1/2 in. I can get)
I = Indulgence?
pie, cookies, get the picture
also shopping
J = Job?
stay at home Momma
K = Kids and names?
Bear Clayton
L = Life is incomplete without?
My boys, family, close friends, and Christmas. Love me some Christmas.
M = Music group or singer?
Oh gosh, too many to name. Ones I couldn't live without: The Beatles, Eagles, Bob Dylan, Michael Buble, Fleetwood Mac/Stevie Nicks, Goo Goo Dolls, America (Leah's Daddy!), George Strait, Kesha
N = Number of siblings?
 2, Shane and Ryan
Shane is a Captain (soon to be Major!) in the Army and Ryan attends the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.
O = Overnight hospital stays?
 Only once, the two nights during Bear's birth.
P = Phobias/ Fears?
cockroaches, heights
Q = Favorite Quote?
"Take care of all your memories, for you cannot relive them". -Bob Dylan
R = Righty or Lefty?
S = Season?
I honestly can't pick a favorite; they each have their perks. I always looked forward to summer most growing up, as any child does, but now the Houston humidity makes me dread it a little. Loving spring at the moment, but fall drinks (caramel apple cider...yum!) are the best and winter brings Christmas, so it can't be ruled out either.
T = Time you wake up?
  10am-ish these days. Bear stays up late and sleeps late, so Momma does too. Plus I'm typically up multiple times during the night nursing, so my sleep is broken up. Not exactly the best sleep schedule but I know I'll look back on this time and miss the precious cuddles.
U = Unknown fact about me?
 I was the captain of my college golf team (that's technically known, but never discussed on here).
V = Vegetables you dislike?
All of them. Just kidding. But seriously, let's stick with one's I DO like: broccoli, spinach....that's about it.
W = What makes you run late?
Having a baby! I was rarely ever late before Bear and now it's a challenge to get anywhere on time. He always seems to be hungry right when it's go-time.
X = X-rays you've had?
 Several on my knees...I had knee injuries in high school and college
Y = Your favorite food?
 mac 'n cheese
Z = Zodiac?
Whitney also happens to be hosting a fun Never Have I Ever link-up today (with Meighan & Nadine) so of course I'm going to participate...
 Never Have I Ever
Never have I ever......
-smoked a cigarette (you'll be happy to read that one, Mom)
-broken a bone (wait, does my ACL count?)
-watched an entire scary movie without closing my eyes at least 8 times
-shopped at Sacks Fifth Avenue (not that I don't want to!)
-owned an iPhone (though I do own an iPad)
-been to Hawaii (big brother lives there, so hoping to change that soon!)
-made lasagna (Zach is hoping that will change soon...)
-dyed my hair (eyebrows would be a dead give-away)
-successfully done a cartwheel (just wasn't meant for tumblin', yo)
 We're celebrating over here because it's almost the weekend! Bear and I are bow tie makin' fools today...tutorial coming soon!


  1. I never knew you were a golfer! So cool. I'm a huge fan of Mac and Cheese myself. I hope you do get to go to Hawaii. We've been once and are going again this year. It's beautiful.

  2. i can't believe you get to sleep in so long! and I would want cookie to be an option too!!

  3. I love this post!

    I want to go to Hawaii badly too! Crossing my fingers that I make it there one day!

    I can't believe you've never dyed your hair or made lasagna :)

    And you golfed?! Never would have guessed. That is awesome!

  4. OMG :) I can't wait to show my dad that you included him on your post! It'll make his day, for sure. Loved your bowtie pic on FB, can't wait for your tutorial!

  5. Love Christmas! I literally start getting excited as soon as October hits!! And I always say the same "I miss Christmas already" on Christmas Eve. Haha. Clearly need a lesson in living in the moment!! Mac n cheese is one of my all time faves too!! New GFC follower!

  6. Great list (both of them!). The first thing I thought when I clicked your blog was oh my gosh, she has perfect Kate Middleton hair. That is a HUGE compliment. It's absolutely beautiful. Thank you for linking up with us today!

  7. this was so much fun! how awesome that you were captain of the golf team!! yum to the diet dr's been so long since i've had one of those.
    steve is obsessed with mac n' cheese...he eats it way too many times a week! :)
    have a wonderful friday and weekend, pretty mama! xoxox

  8. your hair is GORGEOUS! Nadine said it as well, but I thought it was very Kate Middleton! thanks for linking up with us! new follower :)

  9. First of all, sorry that it took me so long to comment on this. I knew I would have alot to say so I waited until I had time. Now it's 4:41am, the perfect time : ). I am so glad you did both of these! I pretty much knew most of these about you which makes me happy. I love the fact that you chose pie and that you have so many in your freezer. That's my girl! I had no idea you were afraid of heights! Have you always been? I was also surprised that you ave never smoked a cigarette with all of those cigars we smoked together lol. You aren't missing out, I have smoked all of 2 cigarettes and they were gross. And, like Meighan and Nadine said, your hair IS gorgeous! Love it and love you!

  10. Ahh, ok so Im a giant pride and prejudice lover and I'm dying to read that book you mentioned. Also-I love how you said life is complete with Christmas, that made my day! I love these posts :)


Thank you for leaving some love!
