Summer Blog Challenge

One of the things I've never done before is a blog challenge.  Mostly because I didn't even know that was a thing!  But an opportunity presented itself and think I'm going to take it.  Kassie of Going Green with the Grizls is holding a blog challenge that seems easy enough for me to jump on board with.  Even with my impending arrival.

I've already missed a few days... What can I say?  I like to be fashionably late.  So here's my speedy catch up.

1.  Why are you doing this challenge?
Easy.  Because I can't turn down a challenge.  Unless its a hard one.
Actually, the real reason is that as I move closer to my delivery, I'm realizing tutorials and recipes and all the normal cool stuff I post (My posts are cool, right?) are going to dwindle a bit this summer.  After all, those first few weeks with a newb are a lot of work.  However, I love my blog and want to keep at it. So let the prompts roll in and I'll keep throwing my normal stuff in the mix.

2. Post a picture of you smiling.


3. List 15 interesting things about yourself.
Really?  15?  I don't know... I mean, I don't want to be so focused on myself... But if you insist.

  • I hate lima beans.
  • Despite being a natural red head (auburn really), I'm always dying my hair... various shades of red.
  • E.T. scares me more than anything in the world.
  • Spiders are a close second.
  • I live by the motto "Why buy when I can DIY?"
  • If I could live on a farm, I would. Complete with chickens and goats.
  • I wouldn't actually eat those chickens. I believe in pet chickens!
  • I spend too much time listening to "uncool" music. Like ELO. Hush.
  • Speaking of ELO, Xanadu is a guilty pleasure movie of mine.
  • I LOVE lists.  I make at least 3 a day. I even have a list of lists to make.
  • My husband's dog is my nemesis. Except when he's not. We have a complicated relationship.
  • I steal my husbands pillow 3 seconds after he gets out of bed. Even in my sleep.
  • Moose are my favorite.  Jellyfish are a close second.
  • Having sons is my favorite.  Because they're just as nuts as I am.
  • I like to munch ice.  By the glassful.  And I'm not anemic. 
There now... that wasn't so bad.

And 4. What's the meaning behind your blog name?
That's a simple one.  There is so much bitterness in this world.  So many people are sour.  And everyone has their time of being a crab apple.  Between my blog and my Etsy Shop, I'm hoping people get a little bit of sweetness.  Even if it's just a crumb.  

Get it?

All caught up!  If you're not following me, now's a good time to jump on board since I'll be updating every day for a while.  You'll get to see my totally awesome responses to the Summer Challenge Prompts AND enjoy my normal rambling.  I know.  You're excited.

Until next time, Happy Monday!
