BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy – 5 little questions you can copy and paste to your own blog in an effort to get to know your fellow bloggers better and to give your blogging brain a break. Thank Draz :)


1. What is your blog theme and how did you pick your blog name?
My blog theme is about weight loss and being banded and eventually babies while being banded. My background reminds me of scrap booking which is one of my most favorite hobbies. My blog name is A Fat Wife's Journey to Fabulous. My thinking behind it is that there are (for the most part) 2 types of military wives. The fit skinny one and the fat ones that wear sweat pants everywhere they go and I had fallen into the second category and finally looked the fact straight in the eye. Fabulous is kind of my word too. I have a mirror decoration in my car that is just a silver metal cut out of the word fabulous. So I am just a shrinking fat wife trying to be fabulous. :)

2. Repeat question: I’m going to name a person not knowing anything about this person in your life or even if they exist and you need to try to describe them in five words/phrases.

Female neighbor two homes/doors down to the left
I have no idea who they are. I tend not to meet my neighbors. They move so much anyway that its almost a waist of time. I hope our driveway neighbors change in a hurry though because they are just trashy and gross!

3. Which do you hate more? Spiders or snakes. Elliptical or treadmill. Hannah Montana or Lindsay Lohan.
Really we have to choose between snakes and spiders?!? I hate them both equally! To me every snake is a python and every spider is a trantula! no thanks to either.
I would rather run on the treadmill then get on the elliptical but I wouldn't say I hate either one of them though.
I would say I hate Hannah Montana less. At least she's not going to jail every other day.

4. Completely selfish question…I need a dress for Chicago…keep in mind I live in Podunk so the options of physically going into a vast array of stores is VERY limited. (thank God for the Internet) When you need something fancy/a dress – what is your go to store and why?
Honestly I don't buy a lot of clothes of the Internet but I have one store that I am waiting to get a dress for my husbands Christmas party for work. It's called pin up girl clothing, I love there style and they have a blue dress on there that I want ssoooo bad! Thank god for dresses that love big hips :D

5. Repeat question: How was your week in blog land and in real life?

Blog land: trying to keep up with you all as best I can. It was good to see that earth quake and hurricane people were ok. I bought my ticket to go to the second city comedy show at BOOBs!! It should be so much fun! I am also hoping to go dancing on Saturday night. Any takers? We can get snockered and have a good old time! After dinner of course :) Protein before extra calories ladies.

Real Life: I have been keeping up with the gym and the no weighing myself. My classes are going good. Keeping me busy and my mind working.
Ttonight I am going to tan again. Yes, in the pod of doom! The hubby said that he noticed a very tiny bit of color on my back, but he might be crazy. I haven't noticed any difference. I hope I will be able to see a difference after this second time.
I am getting my hair extensions in a couple weeks. The lady from the salon I am using said they last anywhere from 5-6 months! they use real hair too so I can style them and everything just like the real deal. I think I am going to set up my consult the first second week of September. I will have them for BOOBs :)

There is a ton of stuff to get done and it all seems to involve spending money :( But at least it's only for a short while. Lots of stuff to do with dresses and fun nights out!
My cold seems to be lingering and it's making my vertigo crazy bad. I had to pull over while driving because I was so dizzy I couldn't see anything. Thankfully it doesn't last very long but holy crap it's scary when your driving. So I have been trying to get seen for that but no one from my doctors office has called me back. So frustrating!
Anyway...have a good weekend everyone and don't do anything that I wouldn't do :)
