My long lost love....5QF

Posted by Robin . on Friday, February 18, 2011, In : 5 Question Friday 
It's been a while since I joined the lovely little Mama M. for her 5 Question Friday! Hello 5QF, I've missed you.

The questions....
1. Have you worn the same outfit more than one day in a row?
2. If you had to choose any LARGE city to live in, which would it be?
3. Fly or drive with the kids on vacation?
4. What is your idea of "spring cleaning"?
5. What is the best book you have ever read?

1. Have you worn the same outfit more than one day in a row?

Oh most certainly. Isn't that a rite of passage f...

5QF - I'm still a teenager sometimes

Posted by Robin . on Friday, October 1, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
This morning, I was more of a teenager than a mom.

Yep, I overslept.

Woke up two minutes before I usually take TRex to school.

0007 is having an allergy attack so, he wasn't up getting ready for work. I got up, got TRex up and got us both ready in 20 minutes.

The crap thing is that every morning I get up and get dressed and do my makeup and get all the way ready just to go drop him off. I don't have to do any of that stuff on those mornings that I have time to do it. But, today I knew I would...

Update on Kitchen and 5QF!

Posted by Robin . on Friday, September 24, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
Update: I'm almost done with my home makeover!

Lemme explain.

The actual kitchen has been done for a few days. The thing is, one of the big parts of the renovation opened the room up a lot and made my kitchen, living room and dining room much more of one big room. I couldn't do the kitchen and stop there! The whole area had to be painted!

That's one reason it's taking so long.

Another reason is way more fun for you all. I'm working with one more sponsor for the giveaway part of the reveal. Woo...

5QF - Beware of the french fries!

Posted by Robin . on Friday, September 17, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
Ugh. 6:00 AM? I'm breaking up with early morning wakeups.

Well, we'll be on a "break" this weekend. Hopefully.

I'm seriously surprised I can even pound out a coherent sentence. Though, I'm sure I wouldn't be quite so tired if I got my procrastinating butt in bed before midnight every.single.night. Blah.

I am literally sore today from painting yesterday.

No. I am not a wuss.

I'm a hardcore painter.

I'm frantically trying to get my redo finished so that I can bring you all the most fantabulous g...

Just a little 5QF before my weekend shindig...

Posted by Robin . on Friday, August 6, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
Dude, I was aching for this week to hurry up and now it's Friday and I'm wondering where the week went. This Saturday is the big day. The TRex and Snappy Birthday Party Extravaganza. Well, maybe not "extravaganza". Definitely a shindig though. I think I've planned all I could possibly plan and have all my ducks, so to speak, in a row. Those bitches better stay lined up in that nice neat row though.

I am not in any way shape or form looking forward to the two cakes I'll be making. Those of you ...

5QF - The Birthday Vlog Edition

Posted by Robin . on Friday, July 30, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
Happy Friday! Head over to Mama M's blog, My Little Life, for more 5 Question Friday!

Yes, I vlogged it. Haven't done it in a while. Seriously, does the video have to find the most unflattering point to freeze at? Hurry and press play! I don't actually look like such a weirdo.

There's a birthday in our crazy house today....

5QF - This girl needs a surprise party!

Posted by Robin . on Friday, July 23, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
So glad the weekend is here. It looks to be a fun one with birthday parties to attend and 0007's first big photo shoot. The coming weeks are going to be cah-razy.

Both of my kids have birthdays (my babies will be 6 and 3!) and I've got a big party to plan for that and my baby TRex is turning into a school-attending big kid! Lots of changes in the near future and this momma is feeling a bit anxious about it. Maybe that's why I embraced the laziness this past week. Clinging to the non-scheduled...

5QF - Dust, lame scars and mixed food

Posted by Robin . on Friday, July 16, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
How's that title randomness? You like that, dontcha?

Pretty damn happy it's Friday. This week really felt like it was taking for-ev-ah.

So, what did I do and not do this week? Well, lemme tell ya.

I did a lot of wishin' and hopin' and hopin' and wishin' for my good friend over at Single, Infertile Female. Lots of positive energy goin' out her way as she rounds third base to slide into motherhood.

I did not get any tanning done. Boo. If anyone feels bad for me they can come mow my grass and spra...

5QF - I heart the 80s

Posted by Robin . on Friday, July 9, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
Wow. So, I didn't really realize that it was Friday until just a few minutes ago. This week went by supah fast!

First, I'd like to pat myself on the back because after totally losing my shit during the storms last week, I remained cool-calm-collected (or crazy-sexy-cool for you TLC fans) during the thunderstorms we had yesterday and last night. Yay me! Yes, I am congratulating myself on being "normal" and not freaking out when it's raining.

Now, ladies and gentlemen, I'm not sure I can expres...

5QF - Procrastination, baseball and fireworks

Posted by Robin . on Friday, July 2, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
I'm being such a procrastinating, lazy arse today. Seriously, I am forcing myself to do this post and cannot pressure myself enough to vlog it. My procrastination has compromised into the form of a written blog post.

Good news is that I didn't blow to Oz. The weather is still crummy and I'm still ever so slightly on edge but, the worst seems to have passed and I'm hoping that was the last hurricane in history. Don't burst my bubble. A girl can dream. I do have to say thank you to all my blogg...

Paint Fiasco, Boyz 2 Men and Love

Posted by Robin . on Friday, June 25, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
I just realized that it's Friday.

Yep. That's the kind of week it's been.

For the last two weeks, I've been doing some painting. I painted one of the bathrooms, walls and cabinets. Then I started painting the kitchen cabinets. I got almost done in the kitchen when, two nights ago, 0007 made us both realize that....I didn't prime them!


I was bummed, to say the least. Two weeks and a gallon of paint down the crapper. I'm not so much upset that I have to paint again. I love paint...

5 Question Friday...Cough...Sneeze

Posted by Robin Haws on Friday, April 30, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
Hey y'all!

I feel a bit better today but, alas, there is no vlog here. I'm not feeling that much better! Maybe in a few days!

Let's all send a little "feel better" energy my way though because, man, we have got one busy weekend ahead of us. Keeping my fingers crossed that my week of SVU watchin', chaise loungin', gallons of water drinkin', trying to rest will pay off and I'll be tip top for the multitude of birthday parties ahead of us this weekend.

Don't forget! The Native Honey handbag giveaw...

5 Question Friday and an Announcement

Posted by Robin Haws on Thursday, March 18, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
Friday already? This week flew by.

I'm stoked it's Friday. I'm watching my nephew this weekend and he's insanely adorable and just the coolest baby! Beware: Pics will likely flow like wine in the coming days!

Before I get to the Mama M-ness of the day, I want to let you all know that I'm organizing a TEXAS BLOG PARTY to be held in south Texas (likely Victoria, possibly Corpus Christi - depending on number of attendees and venue options) on JULY 10TH.

It's going to be a kickin' good time and a ...

Five Question Friday! Yip Yip!

Posted by Robin Haws on Friday, March 12, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 

Friday, she is upon us. This weekend looks to be a pretty darn good one. I've spent the week painting picture frames, lamps and other things and now I'm all geared up to see what else I can redo for free this weekend! We've got some fun family stuff to do (albeit, way too early for me on Saturday morning) and the weather is going to be sah-weet all weekend! (except I've now jinxed it) I've got so much that I hope to get done this weekend, I'm placing bets on not getting any of it done! Alrigh...

Five Question Friday

Posted by Robin Haws on Friday, March 5, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
You know, if it wasn't for Mama M., I wouldn't have blogged as much this week. She's been my own personal blogging cattle prod for the past few days! Ah, Mama M. This procrastinating, blank-mind-momma thanks you very much! Isn't it funny how my procrastinating tool (blogging) has suddenly become something that I procrastinate?!

But I digress. (Or am I procrastinating?)

It's Friday. And that can only mean one thing.

Sloppy Joe Day at the county jail?


It's time for Mama M.'s 5 Question Frida...

5 Question Friday

Posted by Robin Haws on Friday, February 19, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 
Friday already? Woohoo! Normally, Friday doesn't mean much. I'm a SAHM so, my days are pretty much all the same. Hubby works on most Saturdays so, Friday is just another day. But, he informed me yesterday that he isn't working this weekend so....Woohoo Friday!

It's been a good week. Got a lot of work done this week. For the most part, the weather was great and the kids were able to play outside every day. The other day when I thought the washer broke, it decided to prove me wrong when I went ...

Posted by Robin Haws on Friday, January 15, 2010, In : 5 Question Friday 

Well, I was going to procrastinate today's 5QF but, since Mama M. used one of my question suggestions, I guess I'll do this post when it's actually still Friday!

Today's Questions:

1. Worst trouble you ever got into as a teenager?
