My friend Angela tagged me to do this as a note on Facebook, but I thought that I would add it to my blog here's a bunch of random things about Mrs. Vuong :)


What is your salad dressing of choice?
Tie between Buttermilk Ranch (my mom makes the best) & the Ginger dressing that you get a Japanese Steakhouses (which we happened to go to for lunch today (yummy!!)

What is your favorite sit-down restaurant?
This is a really hard one! I think if I had to pick one it would be Marker 32, a really nice local place here on the water - perfect for date night!

What food could you eat every day for two weeks and not get sick of?
Spinach Dip (A weird thing about me is that I absolutely HATE mayonnaise, but there are a few things with mayo in them that I just can't get enough of - spinach dip, my mom's spaghetti pasta salad & ranch dressing) Seriously, I have to like hold my nose when I make these recipes but after it's all mixed together I pretend that I forgot to add the mayo & eat it like there's no tomorrow!

What are your pizza toppings of choice? mushrooms & black olives (thin crust please)

What do you like to put on your toast? Cinnamon Sugar - I actually had this for breakfast today :)


How many televisions are in your house?
4 -- one in the living room, one in our bedroom, one in the guest bedroom, and one in the garage (above the treadmill that I haven't used in like 7 months - I need to get back on that thing!!)

What color cell phone do you have?
silver Q Phone - not the coolest thing around, but it's a work phone & I refuse to carry 2 cell phones around


Are you right-handed or left-handed? Right

Have you ever had anything removed from your body? Appendix...

What is the last heavy item you lifted? Collin - all 17lbs of him!

Have you ever been knocked unconscious? Nope

If it were possible, would you want to know the day you were going to die?
I don't think so

If you could change your name, what would you change it to?
I like my name now, but when I was young I went through a phase where I practically begged my mom to change my name to "Crystal". Not sure where that came from, but I am glad she put her foot down on that one! So therefore everything I owned was named Crystal (guenia pig, imaginary unicorn friend, etc.)

Would you drink an entire bottle of hot sauce for $1000?
For $1000 Absolutely!


How many pairs of flip flops do you own? probably at least 5

Last time you had a run-in with the cops? comments from college friends please! Lately I think the only thing that happened was I got pulled over a few years ago for driving without my headlights on...crazy, I know! Although I don't think this qualifies as a run-in with the police, today I was backing out of the garage & broke my side view mirror on the side of the garage - ouch!

Last person you talked to? Son

Last person you hugged? Collin



Any holiday I get to spend with family, but if I had to pick I would probably say Christmas.

Day of the week? Saturday, or any other day that I get to be home with Collin :)

April - Collin's BDay & our 4-Year Wedding Anniversary!


Missing someone? Family in Texas!!!!!

Mood? Happy & Content!

What are you listening to? Quiet (Collin & Son are both in bed asleep)

Watching? Nothing right now, but we just finished watching the replay of yesterday's FSU game.

Worry? Nope, we are in good hands!


First place you went this morning? church

What's the last movie you saw? Transformers 2 (I love blockbuster xpress from Publix)

Do you smile often? Yep, it's hard not to - God is so good!!

Sleeping Alone Tonight? No, thank goodness we are all home together!


Do you always answer your phone?
Usually - the only exception is 1 person from work who shall remain nameless but I seriously roll my eyes when their # pops up...and if you call and I don't answer don't call right back 5 minutes later, then 5 minutes after that...I check my voicemail & if it is an emergency I will call you back, otherwise I'll send you an email. (Okay, that sounded kind of mean but if you knew what it was like to talk to this person on the phone you would understand...)

If you could change your eye color what would it be?
I love my eyes (blue) and wouldn't ever want to change them!

What flavor do you add to your sonic drink?

Do you own a digital camera?

Have you ever had a pet fish?
Yes, I loved having a fish tank in my room growing up!

Favorite Christmas song(s)?
Not sure...ask me again in a few weeks and maybe I can think of it

Can you do push ups?
I think a couple

Can you do a chin up?
There's no way!!

Does the future make you more nervous or excited?
Definitely excited!

Ever been in a car wreck?
I totalled my first car at 16, and had a terrible record for the next several years...I think I straightened my act out when I started having to pay for my own car insurance bill!

Do you have an accent?
Depends on who you ask...people here would say no, but I bet up north it would be a different story :)

What is the last song to make you cry?
Really anything about having a baby gets the tears going these days - probably most recently was "Letters From Home" - I think it's Stephen Curtis Chapman??

Plans tonight?
Shower & bed, as soon as I finish all of these questions!!.

Have you ever felt like you hit rock bottom?
No, I've never felt like things were totally hopeless. There's always someone out there with bigger problems than your own & I like to keep things in perspective.

Name 3 things you bought yesterday.
Oh dear, Collin & I went on a marathon shopping spree yesterday, but most of it was Christmas presents so I can't list those. I did buy Collin some new clothes & I bought myself 1 shirt at Old Navy, and some new underwear for Son.

Have you ever been given roses?
I love roses & have received them several times from Son - he knows that I like the multi-color ones with pink, yellow...all red is so boring!

Current hate right now?
When Collin has a huge diaper explosion & ruins one of my favorite outfits of his...why can't he ever ruin something I don't absolutely love??

Met someone who changed your life?
Jesus Christ!

How will you bring in the New Year?
Not sure...hopefully we will be able to go back to Pensacola (we will be there the previous weekend for Christmas) & see Tram & Jaeden again before they have to go back to Hawaii, but it depends on Son's work schedule.

Do you have any tattoos/piercings?
Just my ears pierced - no tattoos

Okay...that's it for now. I think there were about 20 more questions but mommy is tired & needs to go to bed.

Hope everyone has a wonderful (SHORT) work week this week!! Woo hoo!!
