How I came up with my Blog Title...














I had someone ask me through a comment why I am trying to stay calm. So here's the answer to her question...

My mom is always telling me "calm down my dear". I think my middle name should have been stress! Another reason, HELLO... I have three teenage boys :) Now you know why I love Tigger so much! He's a spaz like me! Always bouncin!

Yep, I'm convinced now more than ever that we're 2 peas in a pod! Ha. Casey's always telling me to "calm down". Ugh, how they know how to push my buttons! K, now I'm off to take some Kava to help me "calm down". Lol. I luv the name of your blog and I luv TIGGER!

Heather said...

Hmmm... I'm pretty laid back, but I don't have 3 teenage boys either... I'm sure in a few years with two teenage girls I'll be changing my tune.

That's great! My whole life my family always said, Becka hold your temper! But I get "happy excited" just as easily.
My mom could relate to the teenage boys thing too, I totally "get" the tigger love!

Three teenage boys!? I want some boys.. or a boy.. or a girl.. just a baby. That would be nice.

Rob said...

You stressed.... NEVER! LOL :)

The GosFam said...

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Do I know you? I am just totally stumped, and just curious if you are a current friend or new :)

Becky said...

I love that you have a countdown for Thanksgiving and Christmas!

Three boys - yikes!

Barbaloot said...

Thanks for the comment on my blog! I'm definitely liking yours, too. But I'm with the other people from your first post...how on earth do you have 50 comments on a first post?

Either way-I'll be coming back:)

Bertie said...

I love the new blog name and tigger is perfect for you:) love it!!

Motherboard said...

I like the name! I was thinking I should have given myself a name like this-- cause I'm a freaker!

Girl teenagers are WAY worse than boy ones... I'm just sayin'!

Laura said...

I think we are all trying to stay calm, but with three teenagers - you need more calm than I do! Thanks for visiting my blog!

Mikki said...

I like your title. I think we can all relate a little. I have to remind myself constantly to control my outbursts!

Mikki said...

PS, now I'm following you too.

b. said...

Yup...I'm always trying to stay calm too!
Love tigger.

Jessica G. said...

I like the name...it's my mantra these days. :)

And where did you get your Christmas countdown? Very cute!

Marivic_Little GrumpyAngel said...

I totally get how 3 teen-age boys can make you spaz :-) I have only one boy (and one teen-age girl)and I spaz out more than I want :-) I'm like you. I can be a "bouncy" person :-) so I think your title is very appropriate.

Thanks for visiting my blog and following. I follow my "followers" so we'll be blog friends! That makes me bounce, but in a good way :-)

Julie said...

In this day and age, it's an awesome title for a blog! Very appropriate.

kitchenditcher said...

I think it's a darling blog name! Your smallest child is playing with peanut butter. Stay calm! It's after midnight and your son isn't home. Stay calm! Yeah, I like it!!

Lady of Perpetual Chaos said...

I love your blog name! I can relate. ;o) And your blog is super cute!

susette said...

Oh wow! We both have three teenage boys. Well, actually one is not a teenager anymore since he's 20 and on his mission. But they definitely keep life fun, interesting, and very full. Gotta love em :)

Mother Goose said...

I like that!! I tend to freak out first and then calm down later but I totally need to freak first! I juat have to!

Annette Lyon said...

3 teenage boys would do that to you. I'll have 3 teenage girls in a few years. I have a feeling I'll be a bit Tiggerish myself . . .

Carla said...

My Mikey IS Tigger-orange, cuddly, and going ninety to nothing. Or he was when he was younger!

The Forney Four said...

Reading your blog = not stressful. You seem to be the exact opposite of stressful. Just optomistic and faithful about life and your surroundings. Thanks for sharing!

CJ, the Purple Diva said...

Thaaaa wonderful thing about tiggers, is tiggers are wonderful things...:-)

Annie said...

Hey, "Trying", Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm totally going to steal some of your gift ideas :)

ABOUT US said...

I can really relate to the title since I have 3 boys a 13 yr, twins that are 12. I also have a daughter that is 20 away at school. Since I am a single parent I am always stressing things wanting them to go perfect (meaning what I see as perfect). Great Name!

Amber said...

I love the name of your blog! Thanks for visiting mine!
