It’s another Friday episode of BYOC where we answer just 5 questions (some funny, some serious) in order to learn more about our fellow bloggers whether they are old or new followers. Copy and paste to your blog if you want to play along!
1. If you could be a cartoon character – who would you be and why?
Hands down for me – I would be Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Something about her in that yellow floofy dress when she dances and the Prince at the end with his long hair….mmmm….yummy. (Who gets excited over a cartoon guy? Drazil – that’s who)
If I was talking classic cartoon characters – I’d go with Minnie and a side of Goofy. Let’s face it Minnie is sweet as cake and she wears heels every day and looks hot…and Goofy – well you gotta love being Goofy-ish. Oh God – I forgot about Smurfette – I could so be Smurfette….all those boys loving her all day long….ha!
2. Who was your teenage heart throb? (Thanks Fiona for this one)
Mine was Kirk Cameron from Growing Pains. I had pictures of him and Corey Hart ALL over my walls.
3. Do you believe being overweight is about a mental obstacle or do you believe it’s simply about overeating/food?
I ask this because I don’t know. I’m trying to figure it out. I never felt like I was filling a void with food because I wasn’t overweight my whole life. I wasn’t the size I wanted to be but I wasn’t really overweight with health issues until after my pregnancies. And then I lost the weight and now I have just a bit left to go until goal but I don’t stop eating – too much, like compulsively – and that makes no sense to me because I can’t find a mental reason for it other than I like food – it tastes good – I want to eat and I seriously don’t know if there’s any more to it than that so I wanna hear what you guys think about this.
4. What’s your all-time favorite song?
Mine is “Wonderful Tonight”….I’m so embarrassed that it’s my favorite song and I’m not sure of the artist but I think it’s Eric Clapton. There’s a line in the song that says “she puts on her makeup and brushes her long blonde hair”….and every time I dance to it with my hubby he sings the whole thing to me in my ear and every time he changes the line to say “brushes her long brown hair” cuz I have brown hair. Every time. Love that.
5. Whose blog or comment spoke to you/stuck with you this week and why? This is our “you get to be famous for a moment” without having to follow all the rules of an official blog award question.
Blog for me was my BFF Jennifer who lost her grandmother this week and all those I follow who were without their mothers this Mother’s Day. My heart ached for them as I reflected this past Sunday. I had some amazing comments on my Prodigal Son blog this week and they all touched me.
Jacquie’s blog about her loss was heartbreaking and all the comments from everyone were heartfelt. We are all still thinking of Jacquie and her family.
See you at next week’s edition of BYOC!
