It’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer 5 little questions to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break! Copy to your own blog and enjoy!!

1. Do you know your credit score? Do you check it regularly? Does it matter to you?
I have an idea what my credit score is.  I check it every so often.  Yes it matters.  I used to have stellar credit 800 but then I short saled my home in 2009 because there was no way we were EVER going to make the money back on the house..bought house for $430000 and short saled it for $207000....it was hard for me to convince my hubby to do that he wanted to hang on to it but I kept telling him it was a business decision and he finally agreed.  We also had to file bankruptcy that year because my hubby had quite a few medical bills and my company had cut our medical so we had to pay for it.  Because there were so many bills and everyone wanted $50(over 40 bills from hospitals) I tried to negotiate with them but they wouldn't and it was physically impossible to pay $50 a month  to all 40 bills we had to file.  needless to say my credit score to a crap!  I check it every so often to watch it go back up but at one point I was down to 527...I haven't checked in 6 mos but it was in the 600's

2. What’s your go to “water-cooler-off-er” each summer? Small kiddie pool, “real” pool, sprinkler, public pool, hotel pool, or stay inside in the air and never don a bathing suit ever?
We go to the community water slides or else I turn the sprinkler on.  Sometimes I turn the air low and stay inside and watch a movie...here in Phoenix I think of our summers as WINTER.  In the winter time growing up in Montana we were inside a lot, well....that is what it is kind of like here in the summer.  But I go stir crazy cooped up too much.

3. Describe your phone cover…if you have one.

I have an Iphone and my cover is pink/purple.  I LOVE pink.

4. If you ever had a wedding, what were your colors or theme? If you aren’t married – but plan to be some day – what will your colors or theme be?
We got married 8 years ago..colors were dark red(almost black) and white...had a violinist, sit down dinner, 125 people, wine and beer included...open bar for purchase.  I loved it, had to be the best time of my life.  I didn't get married until I was 33years old.  Payed for it all with my own money I had saved.  Hubby paid for honeymoon to Bahamas...and rehearsal dinner.  I did a lot myself(flowers, welcome baskets for out of towners, invitations, center pieces, bird seed throws)

5. Repeat question: summarize your week.

Pretty good.  Quite a few downer bloggers out there..that sucks....I had a nice drop in weight today!  A few AZ bloggers are getting together for lunch tomorrow---yay!!! So excited there and yes a little anxietal to meet new people...but so is MandaPanda so we can feel awkward together!LOL!
