These pain meds are making me crazy. I thought they were supposed to make you, negative. I sleep for about an hour then I am wide awake until it's time to take them again. So, I was happy to see that my little skittle lovin' Drazzie brought back BYOC :)

BYOC stands for Bring Your Own Crazy. Copy and paste the 5 little random questions below into your blog and give your own crazy answers! It gives your blogging brain a break every Friday and helps us all get to know each other better too!

Here we go!!
Technically it is now Saturday, but I'm sure my little Drazziepuff won't mind that I am a day late :)

1-What was your favorite cartoon as a kid? Is it still on today?
• I am a HUGE Snoopy fan. I have always loved that adorable little beagle. I even have a little Snoopy tattoo. I love all of the Peanuts Holiday Specials :)

2-Describe your favorite piece of clothing.

• Flip flops....duh :)

I also love, love, love to have lazy day Sundays. We all stay in our big butt pajamas all day. Plus, my sweats have been with me through thick and thin .....literally :)

3-In the hopes of convincing Summer to arrive – I’m asking this question. Name a summer tradition you currently have or a tradition you want to start for every summer.
• I always take a girls trip to the beach with one of my bff's. We go to Gulf Shores and always have so much fun!!!

The Rockstar and I have pool parties in the summer. It's usually a bunch of musicians and their families. I love it. The men always do most of the cooking (because, you know, they think a woman can't grill and I will keep on letting them think that so I get out of doing the cooking).

Since I don't work in the summer it is also a tradition on the last day of school to unplug my alarm clock and put it in the closet. I don't take it out until it is time for school to start back :)

4-For all of the newbie bloggers out there getting to know everyone – let’s answer this one. How long have you been blogging, what is your theme and how did you pick your name? Why did you start blogging? What kind of blogs are your favorite to read and follow?
• I started blogging in October, 2011 just prior to having lapband surgery. I had been blogstalking several people for months trying to learn the good, the bad, and the ugly about lapband.

I guess my theme was originally supposed to be about the band and weightloss. However, I don't post a lot about that. I have never been one to have a "weigh in" day and I figured it was pretty boring to hear about the same things I was eating and my slow weightloss. I post more about my family, my job, and just everyday stuff.

I did a whole post on how I picked my

If you don;t feel like reading it I will paraphrase for you...I was working at an inner city school teaching kids who were emotionally disturbed or behavior disordered. They would say whatever popped in their mind...they had no filters. One of my students started calling me names one day and he called me "BigAss Barbie"...he was trying to piss me off, but I immediately said "awwww, you think I look like Barbie???? That is so sweet!" So the whole Barbie thing kinda stuck. I was getting banded. My husband is a I put all that together and got "RockBand Barbie".

My favorite blog to read....little Drazzie's of course :)

5-Repeat question: Summarize your week in blogland and in real life for us:
• My week in blogland wasn't much...I posted once (other than today) and haven't had much time to read very many. Why you ask???? Because I had a tummy tuck on Tuesday. At first I was in too much pain to think about a blog, and then once they finally figured out that I had not had any pain meds they had me so drugged up I couldn't see straight enough to read blogs. I am doing fantastic now and will catch up on blogs over the next few days! Have a great weekend!

There you go!

That’s BYOC for this week!

Join in if you wish!

Love it all! I can't wait for summer to get here too. I need warmer weather! (Remind me of this when I'm complaining about having to run at 6am because of the heat!)
