Is that a challenge?

Own it, work it, and love it. . . . myself of course! “Is that a challenge”? (Said in my best Lion King voice)! My sister has challenged all of her “Smackers” to own it, work it, and love it. So I’m stepping up, and telling everyone what I love about myself!

I LOVE that I’m little unbalanced, crazay, weird, OCD, whatever you want to call it! I have my own way of thinking. I know that everyone probably feels this way, or at least I think they should. I don’t really know though, I’m only Buffee, I only know how I feel and how to be me, and I love me.

I fancy myself a Goonie and I LOVE that about myself! I’ve always felt like I was just a Goonie! It’s my all time favorite movie. I’m always quoting the movie, most of the time it’s not even on purpose, it’s just a part of who I am now. It’s Buffee talk. Most people don’t get it. My sisters and my friend Adam are probably the only ones who catch on. I randomly throw out things like “I smell ice cream” “ORV, bullet holes” “Ok, Michael Jackson didn’t come to my house to use the bathroom, but his sister did” “I feel like I’m babysitting, ‘cept I’m not getting paid” “Brand, I’m in here, with my eyes closed” “Pizza. . . pepperoni”! Yes, I know the whole movie.

I love the original Converse (Allstars)! I own a pair in just about every color! I even wore a special pair with my wedding dress. White leather high-tops trimmed in pink.  I almost paid as much for my shoes as I did my dress! I don’t normally wear the high-tops, but it was a special occasion! And I always buy matching laces to go with my shoes, or black ones. I hate the original white laces.

I love crazy socks, toe socks, holiday socks, any type of fun socks! I probably own 100 pairs or more of them. When I started working in “Corporate America” we were required to wear socks or pantyhose. I started collecting socks, bright, bold, crazy, fun socks. Sort of like Detective Seeley Booth in Bones, with his belt buckle! (I love David Boreanaz)!  Yes, I definitely possess the “I’ll show you attitude”! (I like that about myself too)!

I’m not really a girly-girl or a tomboy. I’m somewhere in the middle. I rarely wear make-up, but when I do, I love the way it makes me feel. Typically I’m a jeans and t-shirt kind of gal. I love love LOVE hoodies. I also occasionally love to get all dolled up and feel beautiful and sexy! I completely own my pain-jane no frills look and attitude! But, when I do get all dressed up and wear makeup, I totally Rock It too!

I love sticking my tongue out at people in the car beside me when I’m driving down the road. Especially when it’s little kids! HA! The look on their faces. . . PRICELESS! If you’ve never done it, try it sometime! It’s a great stress reliever! I also like to flick people off, but where they can’t see it! That way it’s like my own personal little secret. I also enjoying waving and blowing kisses to the people that cuss me out or flick me off.

I love to laugh. I have an infectious laugh. When I laugh, everyone laughs. And everyone knows my laugh. It’s unique and all my own. It’s loud, obnoxious, and distinguishable, and I LOVE IT! Laughter is life’s best medicine. I love the nights when my husband and I just lay in bed and talk and laugh together. There’s nothing else like it in the world!

I love Harry Potter, the books, the movies, anything to do with Harry Potter. I have Potter marathon weekends all of the time. I watch all of the movies. The first one is my all time favorite. “You’re a wizard Harry”! I love that line. I cannot wait to go to Universal for the new Harry Potter theme park section. I can’t believe they waited until the hottest time of the year to open it. It really burns me up! But I can’t wait to go, it’s going to be so much fun!

Speaking of Universal Studios, it’s one of my favorite places in the world. I love theme parks. My husband and I love to go theme parking. We don’t go on “real” vacations. We go on long weekends to Orlando and go to Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. (Sometimes we go to Disney, but we prefer Universal). We love the roller coasters!

I love FOOTBALL and the Jacksonville Jaguars. I’ve already devoted an entire post on this.

I’m a lip-sync artist! It’s true, I really am. I put on daily shows from my cubical at work! HA! I’m a total Rock Star! I dance and play the drums too! All live, Monday – Friday, at any given time. To the greatest hits on my iPod! I can’t even tell you how many people have walked by my desk and watched my show!

I am a pajama WHORE! I own at least 50 pairs of pj’s. If I’m at home, I’m in them. Period. Shortly after William and I got married, he asked me, do you ever wear anything besides pajamas? HA! I also buy them as presents for all occasions, birthdays, Christmas, mother’s day, father’s day, any excuse to buy someone pj’s. It’s just my thing! I love them!

I love my maiden name, Buffee Best. It’s the coolest name ever! I’ve been teased relentlessly over my name being Buffee. But truth be told, I love my name. I think my mom is awesome for naming me Buffee, even before it was cool or popular! I don’t know that I would have been the same person without it!

I love being Aunt Buffee. I love children, and since I can’t have any, I take great pride in being the world’s coolest aunt! (This one was obvious). I love my nieces and nephews like they were my own.

I love Pinocchio. I know it’s weird, but it’s me. I started collecting Pinocchio snow globes and figurines when I was young. I have a huge collection of anything and everything Pinocchio. I’ve just always loved Pinocchio and I'm totally own it!

I also love to crochet.  I have an amazing talent and I'm so thankful to be blessed with it!  It is one of my greatest loves and gifts.  I love sharing it with the people in my life!  

Thanks for the challenge sis!  It was great sitting down and thinking about all the positive things I love about myself.  Not in a conceited arrogant way, but knowing that I have great qualities and that I'm happy with who I am and love myself for me, kind of way!  This was awesome!  I hope your other smackers accept the challenge and own it, work it, love it!

I will only wear crazy socks - if I buy a 3 pack and one is a boring basic, I will try to change it out, or else they get dumped in the bottom of my drawer. My faves are my green monkey socks, but I noticed the right one has a hole in it :(

I also LIVE in my pj's - that's one good thing about living in a cooler climate - I get much more mileage out of my flannel jammies

You crack me up!! Oh my gosh, socks I LOVE socks. And sticking my tongue out at people we pass. LOL! And the comment you left at my place - I don't think you're wierd, I'd have thought the same thing if I read it somewhere else! :) Glad you stopped by. I'm your newest follower!
