Blog Challenge ~ Day 5,6, and 7 lol

Favorite Comfort Food

Comfort food... I really don't know if I can narrow it down to just one or well if I really have one. I guess when I think about it that one thing that I turn to the most when I'm feeling sad or I'm upset or what ever is Tostitos chips and jalapeno cheddar cheese dip. I mean its really one of the biggest things Ive turned to ever since my second pregnancy and other then that I cant think of anything I really crave or want as a pick me up. But crappy now is that I want some and the store here closed a long time ago lol

Zodiac Sign

Sagittarius Sun Sign - Zodiac Signs\

Sagittarius, if you ready about it you will actually find a lot of different descriptions of it online but I will use the one at (click the photo to go to the page). It is said that Sags are constantly looking for knowledge and truth, I would say that is me. I'm constantly wanting to go back to school, I'm constantly researching different topics to learn about them, I'm constantly questioning what I am told or I was raised to believe. I enjoy talking to others to learn their points of views.  I'm also one that loves to travel if it means I will learn something new or expand what I already know.

I love to look at the whole picture, the entire scheme of things I guess you could say and take it all in. As much as I love for others to agree with the ideas and plans I can come up with I am also willing to listen to others. Although I also have the ability to speak my mind and not put a filter on what I say, usually what I'm thinking it what you will hear and I will also argue my points and view till I'm blue in the face. Its just who I am and if I feel strongly about something be ready to for what you may not like.

I could probably keep going and pick apart that article and add to it but I will stop. I will say that I am a Sagittarius through and through. If you want to know who I am just learn what a Sagittarius is all about.

Favorite Childhood Toy

Favorite childhood toy would honestly be a toss up between my Barbies and my two Cabbage Patch dolls. I had a ton of Barbies, I even had a convertible car, a jeep, one carry case that turned into a house, one carry case that looked like a fancy closet, a horse and a bunch of other crap lol I still have all the collectible ones that my grandmother bought me and I hope one day to either hand them down to a daughter or granddaughter. I also had two Cabbage Patch dolls. A little white girl and a little black boy. According to my mom we would get strange looks from people due to a little blond haired white girl packing around a black doll, oh well I loved him :) I still have them and their certificates and everything and I cant wait to hand them down either. I have actually been thinking of getting each of my boys one too but we will see.

Blog Challenge ~ Day 4

Views On Religion

(this is only MY view, not meant to offend anyone or place judgement on anyone)

Oh boy lol Ok well most people reading this are most likely off of my Facebook page and they should by now already know that I am a follower of Paganism. I am pretty sure I have already in my life heard everything that people say about Pagans out of ignorance since usually only those that follow it are educated about the true meaning of it, so for that reason I will link a few good articles on it at the bottom of the page.

My view is that most organized religion is corrupt. Most of those that follow an organized religion do not practice what they preach. I mean the Bible is so loaded with crap that so called follows don't even bother to follow and then become defensive when called out on it. Most (but not all) push their religion so hard on others that it turns people off to them and their religion and causes others to judge them and that religion and all those that follow it. One of the main things I guess that bugs me is that the Bible or the Lord commends that no person shall judge another person yet these God Fearing people are constantly judging others. I have also witnessed so many so called religious people that when they screw up the say it had something to do with their Lord. Now I believe that everything happens for a reason but when you keep making stupid choices that screw up your life or the life of someone else do NOT blame someone or something that didn't make that choice, you were given free will for a reason. I could literally go on and on about this but I really don't want to make people pissed at me.

See the reason I choose and have stuck with Paganism as my faith is because there are no set rules, no laws to really abide by. There are mainly common sense rules like "do what ye will but harm none" and the karma law that says if you intentionally do wrong or harm towards another it will practically come back and bite you three times as bad. I as keep saying Paganism or Pagan instead of Wiccan or Wicca or Druid or Druidism etc... because like certain organized religions there are branches that branch off from the center of the belief system. I do not personally identify with any one branch of Paganism there for I fall under the entire tree and refer to myself as only a Pagan.

Anyway I will cut off here before I say or well type something I may regret   :)  please feel free to read the links before and research my religion more.

Blog Challenge ~ Day 3

Top 5 Pet Peeves

To be honest when I look at this topic my mind blanked lol I know I have plenty but I seriously had to Google and find a list of COMMON pet peeves in order to pick out the top 5 that bother me. Oh this is a great list of pet peeves.

(not in any particular order)

1 ~ Noisy eaters. Honestly I didn't think that this really was a bother to me till the last couple months. Dante my 4 year old and his father have been driving me insane. They are both noisy eaters, Dante because of course he still hasn't mastered chewing with his mouth closed and Tim I'm guessing is just a naturally noisy eater. I've found myself using a lot of self control to keep from yelling at them to be quite lol

2 ~ Someone standing over my shoulder reading the computer screen. Ok lets admit it, this is just annoying. I personally dont like and cant stand people stand behind me (yes standing in lines are hell for me!) so someone standing or sitting behind me and reading off of my computer screen or even my phone is super annoying. 

3 ~ Jerks who take up 2 parking spaces. I have been a legal licensed driver since 2005, I have not once taken up two parking spaces unless that was the ONLY option due to the assholes the seem to enjoy doing it just to irritate everyone else. I seriously do not see what is so hard about parking between two lines.

4 ~ Women who wear too much perfume. OMG this ones has to do with child hood memories lol my grandmother was a chronic over doer of perfumes and I always had the misfortune of sitting behind her in the car when we would go somewhere lol the smell would make me sick and to this day it still does. 

5 ~ Ignorant people. Yeah Im pretty sure this one is self explanatory and has stemmed from my work and research with many causes that I care deeply about. I mean what is so hard or so bad about learning something new or doing a little research on something? I just dont understand people sometimes. 

Ok now I am going to admit these probably are NOT my true top 5, although the last one does kinda have to do with them, those would relate back to my activist work related to natural birth, anti-routine infant circumcision, breastfeeding, baby wearing, attachment parenting, baby led solids/weaning, etc...

Blog Challenge ~ Day 2

Where Would You Like To Be In 10 Years

In ten years... lets see it will be 2023, I will be 36, Tim will be 45, Dante will be 14 and Trystan will be 11. We should be about to celebrate 16 years as a couple and roughly 6 years of marriage (we plan to be married around our 10 year anniversary in 2017). I would hope that we would have a couple more kids by then but that's still unsure. I would imagine we are living in either Redmond or Bend Oregon, probably still renting a place but I have no issues with that since it can be cheaper then buying. I want to have a full time photography studio that does everything including birth photography by then and also be working part time as an IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) at the local NICU and birthing centers. I would also hope that by then I have been able to straighten out the crap with DHS and the nursing board and be able to continue on to get my Masters in Nursing. Although only time will tell what happens and what I am able to accomplish especially with two small children to take care of when trying to work and attend school at the same time. I just have been trying to keep my mind focused on one goal at a time yet there are so many for me to choose from that it makes this difficult at times. 

Blog Challenge ~ Day 1

Discuss Your Current Relationship

I'm thinking day one topic could come out interesting or turn wrong. I'm not going to use this as a way to rant about Tim or complain about us or anything like that. Truth is no matter what we go through or what happens we still always have a super strong bond and extremely strong love for each other. I mean its kinda strange, after almost 6 years together we have admittedly had some very tough and trying times but it seems that no matter how bad it is we are always smiling, laughing and happy with each other not long after a fight. I can be pissed beyond everything at him and he can just look at me and I start smiling and laughing at him lol

I'm honestly not sure what to put in this post. How do I describe or discuss my relationship... honestly I cant.
