Chaotically Yours - What does that mean?
My husband will be the first to tell you. My DNA does NOT include an organizational gene. I do my best to overcome this shortfall, but I'm really not very good at it. We're not like anything off the show Hoarders, but our house gets a little crazy sometimes. Now that we have two preschoolers to add to the chaos, the salutation describes me that much more.
Why do your family and friends all have weird names?
Since I'm new to this blogging thing, I'm still a little paranoid. So I use aliases. I know it makes no sense that I post pictures of my kids but don't use their real names. It's my paranoia and my blog, so nanny-nanny-boo-boo! (A voice over should come on every time you open my blog to say "Names and details may have been changed to protect the innocent" just like on Unsolved Mysteries)
Handy-Dandy Alias Guide
Sweet Lou - me. I wouldn't categorize me as particularly sweet, actually I can be a bit sarcastic and snarky, but I friend in college used to call me that, so I'm going with it. Besides, I write in the first person, so it doesn't matter much.
Handsome - my wonderful husband. We've been married for almost 11 years. He's really good looking, so I feel like I can fairly call him that, and it's not just the "marriage goggles" talking!
Curly - my 4 year old daughter. She has curly hair. I know, I took the easy route with this one.
Buddy - my 2 year old son. His sister gave him this name when we first brought him home from the hospital. It stuck. I'm not going to register him in school as "Buddy" or anything (I love the real name we chose for him), but it's cute for now.
Krispy Kreme Friend (aka KK) - my close friend and neighbor. She's the kind of lady that will unexpectedly bring you the last Krispy Kreme donut in her box, just because she's that nice. She's that kind of awesome friend.
