American Accent Quiz ~ Fun

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

Tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme
I'm still tackling going through boxes this week. I actually got a lot finished last week. Luckily for my tackle it Tuesday post, my hubby was nice enough to bring another truck load of our crap home last night, lol. Most of it I think I can get rid of. Especially since I have basically forgotten about it for almost 3 years now. I was bummed to find an entire rubbermaid tote of size 5 clothes. My Cam just grew into 6, ugh. I also found some really cute shoes mainly in size 9 & 9.5. Wouldn't you know this September, she moved into a size 10. I even found some darling little size 7 & 8 sandals. I put up the shoes on ebay & will be listing the clothes. I also found more plastic storage containers. I got quite a bit done last week with pairing matching bowls & lids. Now all my extras should match up this week! I put up a couple Tupperware auctions & I think I'm going to do some more. I also gave my parents a bunch of my off brand stuff & going to strictly use my Tupperware & Glass.

That is about it, have to get off the pc & tackle some more!

Memory Lane Monday ~ 1st Apartment

At Moms Blogging this week, the topic is remembering our first house or apartment.

My first apartment was with my husband. When we got married, we moved in with his mom for about a month. Then we stayed at my parents for a couple weeks while we found our apartment. We moved in the general area to one of the cheapest apartments we could find. Aly was about a month old, so we needed 2 bedrooms. I actually liked the apartment, but they did have a bad name even though they were in a nice area. I think that was the reason behind the bad name though because the apartments were really nice for the price. We did live in the apartment across from a dumpster diver & it was pretty gross. I could sit in my living room & watch this guy jumping in the 2 dumpsters between our apartments, GROSS! I used to hate throwing out my garbage, lol. We were on the top floor of a 3 story apartment. We had 2 bedrooms & a nice sized bathroom. the kitchen was a bit small with a small dining area right next to it. The living room wasn't bad. We had plenty of room since we were freshly married & Aly was just a baby. The worst part was the laundry was in the central building & we were on the left side. I had to actually leave my building & go the one next to it that was all connected. Talk about a pain with a little one!
