It’s Friday (or was yesterday, anyway)! That means it’s time for Drazil's BYOC. Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer 5 questions in an effort to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break! Copy to your own blog and enjoy!
1. Whether you’re a parent or not….what do you think the appropriate age is to talk to a child about “the birds and the bees”?
I don't think I'm anywhere near figuring that out yet. I don't think it's appropriate to wait until they ask about it, because what if they never do? My mom and I had a discussion about body parts and sex when I was around... 10 or 11, I think? Sometime around there. It felt appropriate and it wasn't awkward. I would imagine I'll probably do the same when/if we have kiddos.
2. What’s the color scheme in your bedroom?
I wish we HAD a color scheme. I wanted it to be brown and jewel tones, and our bedding and curtains reflect that... But we never got any color or decor on the wall so it feels half-finished. With school, I just never got the energy (or money) to follow through. Maybe one day!
3. What kind of shampoo and conditioner do you use on your hair?
I have a tendency towards dandruff, especially in the winter months. I started using Garnier Fructis Intense Clean Anti-Dandruff shampoo and will never try another dandruff shampoo. It's the only thing that's ever worked. I haven't had any problems since I started using it for the past two winter seasons. However, I ran out last week and we had some Herbal Essences Body Envy shampoo and conditioner in our cabinet so I've been using that. I'm not very particular, but once I find something I like I stick with it...
4. And since it’s nearly summer time…do you paint your own toes, go some place for pedicures or not paint your toes at all? What’s your fave toe color?
I prefer to have painted toes, but I hate the upkeep. I can't afford to get my nails done regularly, and I never think to remove paint and paint them when they grow out. So while I love having painted nails, for the most part... My finger and toe nails are naked 95% of the time. When I do paint them, I like to try all kinds of colors. Lighter colors make my skin look a little more tan (surprisingly, to me), but I like dark colors also. The only colors I'm not a big fan of are shades of blue. Blue nails just make me feel like... death? As morbid as that may sound, ha.
5. Repeat question: Summarize your week!
It was a long week leading up to my comprehensive final yesterday. But Braylen had some good news Thursday and I passed my test yesterday, so all the stress was worth it! I also had a job interview at the place I'd really like to work, so that was nice to accomplish. Today I took some progress pictures and that always brightens my mood (well, when you can see changes, anyway, ha).
All in all, a stressful but successful week!
