Coo-Coo-Kachoo, Mrs. Robinson

Hey, you.  I'm Mrs. Robinson from My New Wife Life.

I'm so excited to be blogging for Ashley Marie while she's busy meeting someone who comes a result from a particular type of busyness.  ;)  Even though I am not a mom at this point in my life (unless you count our chihuahua, Zombie, as a child), I am so excited for Ashley and can't wait to see pictures of her wittle baby's cheeks!  Baby cheeks get me every time.  =)   Anywho..happy to be here!  I hope you'll stop by my blog and say hi sometime.  We already know we have one thing in common...we both think Ashley is awesome.

I was THIS close to sharing with y'all my "recipe" for homemade guacamole.  This close!  But...I really wanted to write about something that has a little more life.  Not to say that avocados don't have life.  They totally do.  I just...I felt like a guacamole recipe was a little vanilla.  Sorry if that's confusing....I don't put any vanilla in my guacamole dip.  Anyway.  I'm going to write about quirks.

One of the things that Ashley & I have in common is that we are two quirky gals raised in places with low quirk-tolerances. =), I'm going to share some of my quirks with y'all.  I'd love to hear about your quirks, too!  

(1)  I raised in a place where tattoos, especially on women, are considered trashy. 
I have 5.

(2)  No matter what...I cannot park a car.  It will never be straight.  It will never be within the lines.  It's not in the cards for me.  

(3)  I'm a walking contradiction in more ways than not.  I love pickles, but hate vinegar.  I am a fan of egg salad sandwiches, but I don't like eggs.  The list goes on and on. 

(4)  I was raised in a place full of people who do not condone drinking.  
I love vodka and wine.  

(5)  My favorite joke (and I always use it to break the ice...even though it sometimes makes the ice a little harder) is:  "So there were two penguins on an iceberg.  One penguin says to the other penguin, "hey.  it looks like you're wearing a tuxedo."  And the second penguin says, "who says I'm not?"

(6)  I like to pop things.  Bubble wrap,  obviously.  Pimples.  Blackheads.  My husbands blackheads.  My daddy's bumps.  Chewing gum.  It's gross and I love it.  I could seriously mess with my face for hours.  

(7)  The password to our wifi is rubpeanutbutteronyourcactus.  Why?  Because I smoked too much pot back in the day and those are the types of things that pop into my head without warning or reason.  And obviously, I immediately send those one-liners to my hubby in a text.  Some of them stick, some of them don't.  This one stuck.  =) 

(8)  Being from a small, southern town I was taught to respect my elders, mind my manners, and hold my tongue.  Well....I only respect people who I find to be respectable.  I could care less how old they are.  Speaking of respectable people, they're the only ones who will ever witness my manners.  And if you visit my blog more than twice, you'll figure out plenty about how often I hold my tongue.  

(9)  I lose my cell phone several times each day.  It drives my husband crazy because he is always coming to the rescue.  He doesn't understand why I can't simply remember where I put my cell phone.  I can remember where I put almost everything...except the one thing I use the most.

What are your quirks?! 



  1. :) Thanks for having me! Give that baby lots of sugars!

  2. Love you and your quirks, little lady. :) And congrats on that baby, Ash Mar. :)

  3. I like to sing & dance in public.
    I hate tomatoes, but I love tomato soup, spaghetti, salsa, etc.
    I am the first one to speak out about gender roles and defining masculinity/femininity for other people... while wearing a sundress, pearls, & heels, or a low-cut top with teeny shorts.


Thanks for saying "Hi!"

Ashley Marie
