More About Me

My name is Shilo, but I’ve been known to answer to the names of Pumpkin, Bug, Babe, Smiley and Trouble. Pick your poision – most likely I’ll respond.

I had dreams of being an author at one point in my life – that’ll probably never happen, so I blog. I spend more money on scrapbooking and crafting than I do on clothes. I hate housework and would rather do anything BUT. I never leave the house without my cell phone, but that’s only because it has my music on it.

I got my name from a song Neil Diamond sang called, “Shilo.” For more about this you can read and see this.

10 RANDOM ANSWERS TO 10 RANDOM QUESTIONS

1. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL?
Rice Chex and Cinnabuns would be among my ‘favorites’, although I don’t really like cereal so I can’t really say I have a favorite.

2. WHAT IS THE MOST INSPIRING MOVIE YOU HAVE EVER SEEN?
This is another toughie, but I think I’m going to go with Where The Heart Is. I love seeing people rise above adversity, and I’m amazed at people that can go through hell and back a dozen times and come back stronger and better than before.

3. WHAT ONE TOY WOULD YOU LIKE TO THROW REPEATEDLY AGAINST THE WALL?
Depends on the day. Most of the times it would be freaking Lego’s that are constantly left on the floor. However, more recently it’s a video game system. I don’t care which one, or all of them for that matter. I’m just tired of the fighting.

4. WHAT IS THE SCARIEST SCENE YOU REMEMBER FROM A KIDS MOVIE?
Hmmm….I think it’d be from Gremlins when the cute little guy starts breaking apart into all the gremlins.

5. WHAT MAKES YOU REALLY SLEEPY?
Snuggling with my baby while watching a show. Doesn’t matter how good the show is, just has something to do with snuggling the baby.

6. WHAT HOUSEHOLD CHORE HAVE YOU NEVER DONE?
Honestly? I’ve never cleaned out an oven.

7. WHAT DO PEOPLE DO TOO MUCH OF TODAY?
Spend more time on their electronic devices than with actual people.

8. WHAT LANGUAGE WOULD YOU LIKE TO MASTER?
Currently, since I’m trying to learn it, it would be Russian. But honestly, French. I just love it, but I can’t understand it when people speak it fluently.

9. WHAT IS YOUR MOST IMPRESSIVE CAR REPAIR SKILL?
Hahaha. Nothing. I don’t think I could even change a flat tire. I don’t even know how to jump start a car…Is black positive or red positive and what goes where…I don’t know. If something ain’t working – I tell the husband.

10. IF YOU COULD BE A MEMBER OF ANY TV-SITCOM FAMILY, WHICH WOULD IT BE?
 I’m going to go with Family Ties or maybe Full House. I’d be okay in either one.

I AM ME….

♥ I don’t have an AMAZING figure or a FLAT stomach. I’m far from being considered a MODEL, but I am ME.
I EAT food. I have CURVES. I have more FAT than I should. I have SCARS because I have a HISTORY.
Some people LOVE me, some LIKE me, some HATE me.
I have done GOOD, I have done BAD.
I love my PJ’S and I go WITHOUT make-up and sometimes I don’t get my HAIR DONE.
I’m RANDOM and CRAZY.
I don’t PRETEND to be someone I’m not.
I am WHO I am, you can LOVE me or NOT. I WON’T change!
And if I LOVE you, I do it with ALL my HEART!!!
I make NO APOLOGIES for the way I am. ♥
