"AND YOU ARE?" BLOG HOP FUN & BABYFACES!!

Recently I got a text from DAVID. He was pretty BOMBARDED with everyone's posts. He said he sat down with several people and got some GOOD footage. I told him this site is PG-13!!! He apologized & told me people were doing ANYTHING to win!

 DAVID! YOUR BONUS JUST WENT ON SABBATICAL!!

I then texted him that he has till FRIDAY to finish his reading assignments & no more FOOTAGE! Then the winners & their prizes will be announced! He said he would hurry as soon as he was done uploading some stuff to YOU TUBE.

DANG IT, DAVID!!

Anyways...I figured, hey, let me crack the whip at those questions...

1. How many tickets have you gotten? Let's see, 2 in one week when my then fiance came back for a week's leave from duty in Korea..what timing & embarrassing! And then another a few years later. (3 for those with math as a fourth language)

2. Can you pitch a tent? Just the question alone leaves my mind with jokes! But yes. When your father decides 2 week long driving vacations all over the U.S. every summer while staying at  KOA's is a good idea, you learn to pitch a tent.

3. What was your worse vacation ever? I've been ALL over the U.S. Mom's magnets somehow keeping her fridge from falling can testify...but the worse was on my way to my wedding in '00. Got lost in Nevada and ended up driving behind my then fiance down a dirt road for close to an hour wondering if we were ever gonna make it out...wow...he was bad luck, huh?

4. What was the last thing you bought over $100? If we are being totally honest...this here water keeping me alive paid to the city. Ha! Otherwise...my registration for my motorcycle. Totally worth every penny!

5. We're handing you the keys to what? A brand new Harley for my hubby so he can seriously stop looking online for one we can't afford...seriously honey...just let it go! Hey, there's 2 keys on this chain, the other is to a vault full of money! Score!

6. What was the last meal you cooked that made even you sick? I'm happy to report...and getting ready to jinx myself as we speak...that I have not killed, maimed or made anyone sick with my cooking...*hears throwing up sounds in background*

7. Fill in the blank: Oh my gosh! Becky look at her butt! It is so big. She looks like ____ an elephant mated with a hippo & created an eleppo. Hey, it could happen!

8. What was your first car? Yeah! Let's embarrass me time! A dingy red '89 Ford Econoline Van. (googled image, very similar) Yes, my parents let me officially use it as my car to & from school & anywhere else I needed. You have to admit, back then, seats were as cushy as recliners! But the first one bought on my own...'98 Ford Escort z28. Awww, that feels muchhhhh better.

9. Your best friend falls & gets hurt. Do you ask if he/she's okay or laugh first? Unfortunately this one hits home because I was the one that tripped her so she WOULD fall, & she got a bloody nose from the fall but somehow I still was laughing...is that bad??

10. What's the worse song ever? I would say anything Kenny Roger sings. ANYTHING. And Michael Bolton. Talk about Chinese Torture!!



And now to BABY FACES:

This comes from Trisha. She is celebrating 2 years on her blog & made a creative blog hop where we post a baby pic and can also write something about us as babies. Here's the one I can find in a pinch:





My story...other than hearing I was a perfect angel...apparently as a youngster I thought snails were makeup so I put them ALL over my face. Boy, I can't seem to understand why I still embarrass myself. Wasn't my earlier answers from my own blog hop enough???

So cute!

Dani said...

An eleppo!? Hahaha! Sounds like some kind of 80's suffed toy. Love your answers!

J. A. Bennett said...

I think the majority of us had crappy cars as teenagers, it's part of growing up. Love your idea of a eleppo, totally going to see if I can do a non-artist rendering of that ;)

Emily R. King said...

YOU tripped her? Naughty.

And that van is an embarrassment. Did it have the sign "When this van's a rockin'..." :D

Julie Luek said...

Oh. Michael Bolton. Yeah. Bad. Nuff said.

We could put your awesomeness van against my super great 70s era Chrysler station wagon. Are we hip and cool or what?

E. Arroyo said...

You're too funny. =) Some great answers.

Elise Fallson said...

OMG you drove the ultimate party wagon!

ilima said...

Cute picture! Aww. And eleppo. Now I want to see one. :)

Morgan said...

Tammy, you're a crack up! You seriously are too cool. Love this BlogHop. :D

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I think your van and my VW Bus would tie for ugly.

Sus said...

That Econoline is MONEY! I hope you didn't have to parallel park in that. :)

Cute baby pic.

Happy Hopping!

Azia said...

the van! ahhh! that is amazing.

Shannon Lawrence said...

Little gross about the snails, LOL!

Hey, my first vehicle was a giant van, too! I tried to google it, but couldn't find the exact same model. Boo. I did remember just a few minutes ago that I have a pic somewhere of a friend and I in front of it, though, so I totally could have found that and scanned it, but who knows where it is?

Mark Koopmans said...

Hey,

Man, that was some smooth van you used to drive :)

Thanks for co-hosting this fun blog hop... I have guffawed at various times already today :)

Trisha said...

Love that baby pic of you - you were adorable! Thanks so much for participating in my blogfest!!

Great answers for the "And You Are?" hop as well :)

Joyce Lansky said...

Kaylee Baldwin said...

I love it. Yes, bills take up most of my money, too.

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Kenny Rogers? I love him. And my mom would frown on the inside about you not liking Michael Bolton. Hey your friend lived, least she didn't break anything. And you did help her up and everything right? I did something kind of like that to my cousin except there were no bruises. But she did burst into tears so...yeah. Cool bloghop answers and you were a cute baby.

SC Author said...

Eww snail face?! You will never escape the embarrassing details in this post....! ;) (Just kidding. I LOVED it :D)

Samantha May said...

Makeup snails...gross :D

I would have never thought of a hippo and an elephant as a happy couple...but your mind goes far beyond the depths of mine!

Tammy Theriault said...

thanks for all your comments everyone! yeah, the van was never a rockin but it was freakin' cool when we had water balloon fights & i could climb the ladder and hit people from on top. yeah, i know, i'm weird with the snails... but yes, i stick by my song choices!! :D

Tamara said...

wow. Lost in Nevada on a dirt road. That sounds fairly awful! Glad you made it out alive :)

You were an adorable baby!!

Sylvia van Bruggen said...

I have to admit, that van made me giggle. What a car! I have to say I really really loved this blogfest! Your answers were a lot of fun too!

Jay Noel said...

Whoa, you drove the PARTY VAN!!!!

Kenny Rogers makes me ill too. When I hear 'The Gambler,' I literally want to run away.

Mina Burrows said...

I love this baby picture. Too adorable.

Motorcycle reg is over 100 bones? Geez!

Love the van too.

Annalisa Crawford said...

Thanks for hosting this bloghop, I knew I had to take part the moment I saw the questions!

Deirdre said...

Saying hi and laughing- love the hop theme. I had fun with my answers. Thank you for hosting. New follower too :)

Karen lee Hallam said...

Thanks for the Blog hop, though I'm running ...way...behind. I just signed up, probably gonna get coal for that stunt. And, I added a baby pic-just realizing your photo was for another blog. I'll leave my young face up in any case. Feels festive.
Nice to meet you! Fun theme for a hop, I couldn't resist. :)))

Tyrean Martinson said...

Seriously sweet picture, and snails as makeup - very funny! Loved all your answers, except I actually used to listen to Kenny Rogers as a kid and thought he was ok. Michael Bolton though - bluck!

Kathryn Purdie said...

I think every teen should have to drive a crappy car for awhile. Builds character. :-)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

An eleppo - that's great! Sorry I didn't get by yesterday. The blogging world was rather overwhelming that day!

Elizabeth Seckman said...

What a cute baby you were! (And so I don't sound like a sibling, I'll add...and you're still cute)
As for Michael Bolten? At least he puts me to sleep before my ears start bleeding!

Karen lee Hallam said...

omg--the trouble I would have made with that van. Good thing my '85 number could only hold four--or six! Sounds like an adventurous life.
I was a military brat early on. THanks for this Holiday gathering. VERY nice to meet you.

Medeia Sharif said...

I agree with Michael Bolton.

I've always driven a standard two or four door car, but I've always wanted to try a van.

Cute baby pic.

Nickie said...

Snails as makeup... awwwwww. How is that both disgusting and endearing?

Tonja said...

Wow that's a pricey fee for the motorcycle.

Tara Tyler said...

a motorhead? wow, never woulda guessed! cool!

Tammy Theriault said...

i'm gonna give you all a big squeeze for making this so fun *SQUEEZE* whoops, everyone passed out...dang i'm so mascular!!

M.J. Fifield said...

Poor Kenny Rogers. How can you hate The Gambler? =) But I'm totally with you on Michael Bolton...

My significant other's first car was a big yellow Ford van. No seats in the backseat though.

klahanie said...

Okay, okay, where am I? Who are you? Oh yeah, I said I would check this posting out and ta da, I'm here. A big yay to this Jack Russell dog!

What an elephantastic joke! Now this is a fun blog hop. However, where the heck are the frogs, toads, rabbits, wallabies and kangaroos. What with this being a blog 'hop'?

Speak to me, Tammy! :)

Pawsitive wishes from Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar and yes indeed, the next Paw Minister of Britain!

Tammy Theriault said...

did you just go there with the animal hopping comment...good grief...*shaking head*

klahanie said...

Even though I'm not a 'springer' spaniel, I 'hopped' over here and thrilled you with one of my eagerly anticipated comments, my human friend!
