That Southern Llama

Happy Monday, Y'all!! On this glorious day (only 10 days away from Christmas might I add?)
I'm linking up with Emily with a Grateful Heart.
AND Amanda For My Conversations
Ember Grey
Knock on Wood

Last Thursday, Josh and I watched Guardians of the Galaxy. I highly recommend this movie. It's hilarious and the soundtrack is THE BEST! No exaggeration. After the movie, somehow we got to talking about C.S.I.: Vegas. 

Me: Wasn't that the show that Mufasa was in (SIDE NOTE: I don't remember actor's names... just stuff they've been in)

Josh: James Earl Jones was NOT in C.S.I

Me: Well dang it... who was the guy in that show? He has a distinctive voice like Mufasa.

Josh: He's not Mufasa. He's James Earl Jones. And most people remember him for Darth Vader Anyways.

Me: You still haven't told me who's in C.S.I.

Josh: Lawrence Fishburn. Also, you sound really racist.

Me: NUH-UH! I didn't mean they look alike. Just that they both have really distinctive voices. I'm not trying to be racist.
After this we sit quietly for a moment, watching the extras from the Guardians bluray.
Me: So, Random thought... it's Lawrence Fishburn in the sprint commercials then right?

Josh: *with a very confused look on his face* Which Sprint Commercials?

Me: You know!!! The ones where it's him and the white guy and they go, "OMG he's cray-crazy aborbs!" and "Obvi!"
At this point Josh is holding his face. He's officially come to the point where he can't even with me anymore. 

Josh: No. *trying to hold back his laughter* That's James Earl Jones in those commercials.

Me: Ok. Got it. Matrix guy is C.S.I. and Mufasa is sprint.

My husband has the patience of a saint with me, y'all. 
The instagram picture
Aside from being grateful for my husband's patience with me, Today I'm grateful for sponsors. Well, not just today. Everyday I'm grateful for them. I love getting the email notifications saying "new sponsor to approve!" Ok... adproval doesn't say exactly that, but you get it. I'm especially grateful when my sponsors have started as bloggy friends. Bloggy friends like Ashley. She blogs at That Southern Mama. She's such a sweet, caring person with a fun style and a great attitude about parenting. She's also one of my current Daddy Llama sponsors!

Today I'm excited to introduce Ashley to y'all. I know you'll love her as much as I do. If you're not following her yet, why not? Do it!

Describe yourself in four words.
Mama's a hot mess! [ This is how I feel these days, ha!] 

You're about to have your second child. Are you excited or nervous? Tell us what you're thinking!
Both, I am excited to meet her & Kenzie finally meet the little sister we are always talking about. I am a little nervous about the labor & delivery part. Last go round went so smooth for it to be my first.. Just wondering how this one will go down. 

I really love your blogging style. What made you start blogging? 
THANKS! :) Well with this blog it was me becoming pregnant with Kenzie, & wanting to share & document as much as I could. 

You're a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?
Leopard print, because it IS a color. Or should be. It is awesome, I am awesome so it just makes sense. :P

What's the best advice you've ever been given about blogging?
Enjoy it. When I no longer enjoy it, something went wrong & I will probably stop. 

What's your favorite movie quote?
Hmm I do not really know. Maybe, "We are going to need more pies!" or "Did we just become best friends?" Ha, I am lame. 

If you could eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
At this moment I would say pretzels! I must have them every day! Maybe they are the reason I have gained so much this pregnancy.. 

See? How fun is she? I'm very blessed to have met Ashley through blogging. She's a local GA blogger like me! PLUS, Anyone that wants to be a leopard print crayon is automatically fun!
Want to see more of Ashley? 
 I highly suggest it.

  1. Hahaha I love the expressions you capcapture Josh making during your conversations!! :)

  2. You are too funny! I get everyone confused, too. And I love Ashley's spotlight- how fun is she?!

  3. This conversation sounds like something I would have with my husband when we go on vacation. I typically develop what he calls "vacation brain". He looks at me with that look and reminds me "You have an advanced degree." I also love the question about being a new crayon. Awesome!

  4. I love this! I would love to do this with you...if it is a different sponsorship, let me know how! This is so funny. I can't and won't even tell you the conversation my husband and I had last night. He was trying to prove a point about baby teeth, and it was ridiculous! Seriously. Oh my :) Love it!! Have a beautiful day...hope your little cutie is doing better, and love the gorgeous Instagram photos of you!

  5. Oh man, sounds exactly like me. Stumbled across your blog from Sheryl's. Very cute! Hope you have a great Monday!

  6. hahaha. Every now and then I get a good picture of his expressions. :)

  7. She's so great! However, this interview was done a few weeks ago... AND she's HAD HER BABY! :D

  8. Welcome, Shannon! the more the merrier! :) Glad to have you. I hope you have a great Monday as well :)

  9. Thank you! I sent you an email about the interview spot. Let me know if you have any questions. xoxo Ainsley is doing much better, thank you. She started a new daycare this morning. Fingers crossed to a better experience.

  10. bahahaha, "vacation brain". When I was pregnant with both kids my doctor would call my memory loss "mom-nesia" LOL.

  11. So I second that Leopard Print Crayon Addition. Legit. We need that.

  12. YES! that would be SO fun. they have multi colored gel pens... why not a leopard print crayon??

  13. Leopard as a crayon would be amazing! Who can we talk to about that?

  14. Seriously, I'm not allowed to talk when we go through customs! :-)

  15. RIGHT?! I love it! it's such a pretty color! I wish bangs looked that great on me

  16. NO KIDDING!! we need to make this happen!

  17. That conversation has be rolling.
    I refer to him as Mufasa too. What's wrong with Josh? :-)

  18. HAHAHA!!! This made me laugh out loud. Hilarious. Poor Josh! My favorite: "He's not Mufasa."

  19. THANK YOU! I knew I couldn't be alone out there when it came to that sort of thing

  20. bahaha!! glad you enjoyed it. I was hoping his sarcasm came through to everyone else when they read it. :D between this and our google hangout last night, he's got a lot of patience with me. hahahaha

  21. Also, then we went on our cruise a couple years ago, our server sounded just like Mufasa. I probably pointed that out to the hubs ten times, pretty sure he wanted to slap me by the end of our trip haha!

  22. thanks! :) If only it still looked that way, I am in need of a cut & color! :P

  23. Ha! Yes it would! We should figure it out, because I still love to color!

  24. Haha! The look on his face is awesome!!!
