Questions and Smiles

I have seen Keely from Mann Land 5 getting to know you meme for a while now and thought this week I would actually participate. 1. If you could star in any movie genre..what would it be.. romance.. horror.. comedy.. suspense or action?
Romance-definitely. I can't see myself diving out of windows or shooting up all the bad guys. And horror-well I just don't like horror movies anymore so don't think I would want to be in one. Guess I am all about the drama. :)

2. Do you recycle?
Yes because our city makes it so darn e
asy by providing a big can we can throw all recyclables in.

4. Do you have a nickname?
Yep, you all know me by it Emmy

5. What's a name you can't stand to be called?
I know some people hate the ma'am thing, but I don't really mind it... it shows at least people have some manners and what else are you supposed to call a stranger when you are trying to get their attention?

6. What are your Summer staples?
Popsicles-especially Otter-pops

7. What was the last thing you bought for yourself?
Sadly I had to think about this for a while. It was some new maternity shirts and pants. Oh and probably an App for my iPod.

Oh and if you were really paying attention or came from MannLand's blog you might realize I skipped a couple of the questions. I decided since I have lots of family and young cousins that read my blog, including my Dad-who last week called me up and very proudly told me he was my official 200th follower, I decided not to post them. But if you came from MannLand, the answers are no- and never will, and yes-especially right now (being 7 months pregnant).

And because I love Heather's Monday Mugs meme, and just really like her blog I am participating in that too (talk about easy blogging day). This week's theme are smiles.
I decided to go a little old school and searched my archives for those early smiles when kids are just starting to get their teeth.I totally forgot their eyes used to be that blue-gray color for so long, now they both have the same brown eyes.

Hope you are having a great Monday, as great as Monday's can be.

TOMORROW- Mr Linkey will be up for your Ten Things To Smile About Lists.


  1. I love those sweet faces! What's an otter pop?

  2. Oh, look at those beautiful smiles and the early front teeth! Adorable!

  3. Look at Alex- oh Man!!! Thanks for sharing- you gave me a blast from the past not only with the pictures, but with the Otter Pops shout out. Oh how I love love them- Mmmmm!!!

  4. Look at those bubs. How cute!

    And what are otter pops?

  5. Such sweet, sweet pictures. It makes me realize (again!) how fast they grow up!

  6. so sweet!! love the SMILES pictures. I wish recycling was easy for us here. Makes it basically impossible. Otter Pops are great summer staples and cheap too :)

  7. I recycle too, although it's a little more complicated here. It took me 3 years to get a recycle bin from the city, and even now that we have it, they only recycle plastic. I have to have a whole other bin, that I have to drag over to the school monthly to put our paper in. Oh, and I also recycle our walmart sacks by taking them to the store.

    ADORABLE pictures! I love when they are just getting their teeth!

  8. My nickname is Micki, but not many people call me that. I used to hate it and never let people call me that, but now I don't care. And our summer staple is watermelon. We go through 2 to 4 a week.

  9. mmm Yummy we love otter pops too!

  10. OH, they are so darling. Their big eyes, long eyelashes and big beautiful smils!! I went back in to the archives too and then I just couldn't stop! I think I went a bit overboard but I'm glad I didn't have to follow any rules!
    I am working on my collage/Ten Things/Award for tomorrow.

    Those questions you didn't answer sound very intriguing (sp?). I'm headed over there to see what you left out! LOL

  11. I can totally see you in a romantic comedy. Me, I want to be Kate or some other strong woman who knows how to fire a gun. Which is funny because I hate guns.

    Yep we recycle. haha. I don't have a nickname. Never did.

    I never thought of "ma'am" that way. I will try and remember that. I hate being called Laura.

    Otter pops rock!!! We do the same, popsicles and such.

    I must go see what these questions are!!

    Isn't it sad what we buy for ourselves? It's usually stuff we have to have and only because you no longer have a choice--maternity clothes. Hmmm my computer, my dishwasher, I am in the market for summer sandals. And it is because mine wore out and had to be tossed. *Sigh*

  12. Cute pics, I love those little teeth coming in. Adorable!!!
    I'm visiting you from Holly's blog, now a follower. It's great to meet other moms. I'm guessing you're pregnant right now since you just bought some maternity clothes :) Congratulations on that.
    Oh, and I LOVE otter pops too!

  13. LOL...I had to go check out what those other questions were! :)
    Love the pictures...what adorable smiles. Nothing like to sweet baby smiles...nothing at all.

  14. Your little kid's pictures are gorgeous! Awesome photos! It's fun to get to know people better. I'm with you. Romance would be a fun movie genre to star in--I would choose a medieval time period where I could wear those beatiful/coveting gowns.

  15. Otter Pops! I love Otter Pops!!! I haven't thought about them in ages! Little Orange Annie. Alexander the Grape. Good times! I'm going to have to look for them!

    And your kiddos are super cute!

  16. Add me to the group that wants to know what Otter Pops are....the kids pics are so cute!

  17. Super cute smiles. I love the baby grins too!

  18. My darling Blue Violet doesn't know what an Otter Pop is? How on earth is this possible? I thought summer could not exist without them. :)

    Oh, and I adore the darling pictures of your kids. Thanks for searching your photos for us!

  19. Love those toothy grins. Almost as cute as a missing front teeth pictures. I'm visiting from Heather's blog. God bless.

  20. Oh how adorable! Those pictures are so sweet!
