10 Day YOU Challange

I'm already behind on getting to this "assignment" (story of my LIFE these days, right?) but I think it's a really neat idea. I got this idea from Shaped by Grace . Don't know her? You should! Please check her blog out here or her facebook page here. I promise, she won't disappoint. So, the challenge looks like this:

Follow me? I'm hoping to get all 10 posts done by the end of January. Wish me luck. This will definitely be a challenge as my time for blogging seems to get shorter and shorter as the days fly by.

So, without further ado, here are 10 know blog worthy secrets...not skeleton in the closet secrets (who me? skeletons in the closet...don't pretend you don't have them either-haha!)

1. I like hip hop/pop music. Really, I do...Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce, Kanye, M.I.A., Eminem, Drake, etc. In the words of my hubby, I'll listen to whatever "the man feeds me." In my defense, I do not to listen inappropriate music when little ears are also listening. It's just for me.

2. I am cheap....and thrifty. Really, really, cheap and thrifty. Partly because I'm broke and partly because it's the way I am. My newest favorite store is Goodwill. I am not kidding.

My sweater? From Goodwill!

3. I like beer. Yep, that's right...a well crafted beer. Not real girly, is it? I know. I mean, I'm not talking I sit down with a 6 pack here. I like to enjoy the taste of a good at a time. I'm a complete lightweight!

4. I hide sweets. From my hubby, from my kids. If you know my hubby, you know why I have to hide my sweets!

5. I am terribly messy. The clutter queen. It's a bad habit I'm trying to tame this year. I've already taken 5 boxes of stuff to goodwill this year...I am trying.

See all my kitchen clutter?

6. I love to sing. I did not say I have a good voice. For the most part, it's my kids who get to listen to me...and they're not really partial at this age, so I don't practice a lot of reserve. Maybe I'm teaching them it's good to have a song in your heart...

7. And dance. I love to dance. Like, shake your booty dance. Again, something only my kids and ***sometimes*** hubby get to see...and only my hubs if I am feeling extra goofy.

8. I have a temper. Me? Sweet, little ole me? Embarrassingly, yes. If you are very close to me, you've probably seen it a time or two. It's not something I'm terribly proud of and something I try to keep a lid on.

9. Along with that temper is a sarcastic smart mouth. Again, those close to me know what I'm referring to...especially my hubby.

This sweet little thing has FOR SURE been sporting her Mama's sassy attitude lately.

Hmmm, can I think of a positive secret??? Seems like I've put a negative spin on the past couple.

10. I am addicted to coffee, sugar and facebook. Those aren't so bad, right? In my defense, I still get up with Mc almost every night and I use facebook to promote and manage my budding cake/cookie/sweets business (<----Click me, click me!). And the sugar bit, well, no excuses there. Thank the Lord I have a quick metabolism and two little ones to run after!

The next blog challenge? 9 Loves!


  1. This is cute!

    I love to dance too...Not that I think I'm good at all, but it's fun (to me) and funny (to everyone else!). I broke it down at both my brother and sister's weddings and embarrassed nearly all of my family (especially my husband!). My brother and sister loved it though. :)

  2. Thank you so much for the shout out and your super sweet intro!!! Your kids are so cute! :) After reading your list I TOTALLY need to add numbers 6, 8 and 9 to my list too! lol Have a great weekend! I can't wait to read your 9 loves! xo, Reannah


    Hi. My name is Gail...except apparently it's actually Jill. With the exception of the beer (sorry, Lady...can't stand the smell...just give me a minty mojito instead) and hiding the sweets (b/c I'm not a huge sweets person..I'd like to think I'm sweet enough already...ha!)...we.are.the.same.person. ( FB either, but I check my blog stats all the time even though I try not Oh and about hip-hop music, I love it but don't listen to it much any more due to the kids. Sad that we have to do that, but most of it is garbage. You know what they say...garbage in, garbage out. :(

    I have the perfect combo for you if you don't have it...any of the "Just Dance" Wii can hear your hip-hop, dance and sing at the same time...and burn calories from your sweets. Lol.

    I am working on so many parts of me that are not the better parts, you know? As for stresses me out yet I seem to never have time to be organized. Ugh. Bad combo.

    My hub does NOT like my sarcasm. Um...WHY did he marry me? ;)
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE to dance and I am GOOD. I also love to sing and I THINK I am GOOD. Ha! (No, actually, I do have a good voice and have thought of having it professionally trained...except yelling at the kids probably isn't good for my vocal chords...but man do I have a set of lungs when I need to!) BTW...I never had a temper til I had kids. Seriously, I was a very calm person, particularly as a child. Funny how kids change things. I pray daily for God to keep me calm, then I feel so bad when I fail Him. :( Thankful for his daily grace and forgiveness.

    Have a great day, Jill. Glad I caught myself up on your posts. I really should be working, but I am procrastinating. :)
