Random & Peculiar Facts

I get tons of emails every day asking me "Alex! Alex! Please tell us more about you! You seem like such a cool awesome chick that I would love to hang out with in real life. I would love to know more random and peculiar facts abouts you"



So here you go "Betsy" here are 10 random facts for you (Betsy is the other personality in my head. She emails me all day long. I wonder how she gets email access?? And how "Betsy" would we actually hang out?)







1. I used to be afraid of mustard- like when I was in Bible School people would chase me around with it and I'd scream. But fast-forward and a few months ago I have found myself eating it every once in awhile

2. I had my first s'more 3 years ago and I HATE them.

3. Eye graguated hi-scool at aged 15. Top of my class baby.

4. I've never been out of the country.

5. I was engaged (with parental consent) when I was 16 (had something to do with going to Bible School.)




6. I don't know how to blow bubble gum, blow up a balloon, whistle or snap my fingers. (Hmmm...maybe that was a class in Bible School The Biblical Reasons not to Blow. ?? LOL)

7. I have a super fantastic memory. Almost scary how great it is. All my memories are categorized by what outfit I'm wearing. Just ask my husband.

8. Speaking of husbands....I was dating my husband before we actually "met" (is that a story you'd be interested in?)

9. I can't say the words vagina or penis without cringing (again probably has something to do with the whole Bible school thing)

10. I turn off the TV when scary movie previews come on.




I've linked this post up at "Friend Friday" over at Modly Chic

So this is what I wore: Mommy







Shirt- Charlotte Russe - Love this because it looks like a slip or something
Tank- Target (I think)
Jeans- Aeropostale- Clearly I love these jeans.  
Shoes-Target
Hat-Eugenia Kim for Target
Earrings- Express


Not the most creative or inspired outfit. I rolled over at 10 AM and realized I was way late for church so this was what I put together in 20 minutes. You all are probably sick of seeing these jeans, but really I love them. I own maybe 10 pairs of jeans (Should I own more? I'm not a big jeans fan) and three are these distressed style but these Aero's are so perfectly worn in and comfy. They're actually about 2 sizes to big (yeah!) but I LOOOOOVE them. Maybe after vacation I'll start a jean shopping trip.


I also need some new simple black leather flip flops and some wedges but I'm seriously not finding anything of interest in the shoe department lately.

Re-fashioned D-List Blog Party

I wanted to participate in the D-Listed Blog party and I hope its not in bad form to re-fashion my Ultimate Blog party post (originally found here.) if it is feel free to order me this here book




So let's see where to begin....it all started long ago in Baltimore, MD my mother and father  wait you didn't want all that information did you?

I'm Alex and I am the loud, crazy, energetic, and attitude prone Mama to my 20 month old loud, crazy, energetic, and attitude prone son Phoenix.



I am a young mom (22) and I understand that most people might think that I'm leaving my baby home alone while I party and pouring Pepsi into the sippy cup and only changing a diaper when the sag is so low it hits the floor.

But in fact the opposite is true! I don't leave my baby home when I go party...I just bring him with me. And Pepsi? That's for chumps! My toddler gets straight Mikes Hard Lemonade (but the light kind because he's on a diet). And I only change a diaper when I know the social worker is on her way. We save money that way.


But in all honesty I take a very laid back (ok well I try) view on mommying and even mommy blogging. I have an ability to be able to describe to you in such vivid detail about a fight with my husband over burgers that makes you want to run for the hills!


My husband is a great guy who happens to be like a billion light years older then me, but who cares? He's still sexy and young. Right now he's in LA working in a recording studio 16 hours a day making his dreams come true and mine as well (ya know the kind filled with Chloe, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, and Marc Jacobs. Those dreams). He's a Grammy nominated music producer and I expect our life is getting ready to go on a fast and crazy ride!

I'm completely
 transparent and honest when it comes to this. I want to put out my mistakes and learn from others and offer up any little nuggets of wisdom I can.

Throw in some adorable pictures of my feisty red head tot, delicious recipeshot pictures of my husband, and fantastic shoes and you've got yourself a blog! Oh yeah and a controversial post every now and again to keep it interesting.


Hopefully you like what you see and if you do please become a follower or leave comments. I also have a button if you want and you can follow me on Twitter (@alexcampbell11) too!

Below are some recent posts you might just find very, very intriguing.


1. Bloggerazzi interview with anonymous blogger "Kit"
2. How do you feel about books with religious messages?
3. What Motherhood means to me.
4. I heart Gee
5. So this is what I wore (craft)

This is Us - Video Montage



Some of you may know that Shawn is in the music industry and I of course wrestle a lot with the fact that he does travel a lot and he happens to be around a lot of beautiful women and around women who could really care less about vows, family, and wives so at least once every 3 months I have a huge freak out "But what if!?" 


They're irrational fears because I happened to be married to one of the really, really, good guys and he does a  great job of going the extra mile to make sure I feel comfortable and safe.


But whenever I have an insecure moment and he talks me down from my "ledge"  the words he says are eerily similar to these from B.O.B and Bruno Mars (Nothin' on You) and every time I hear the song I'm like "Hey! We should collect royalties on this because it's exactly what he says to me!"


So last night after listening to the song and feel extra nice and romantical I decided to make a little video montage of us.

Bloggerazzi- Kit @ Blogging Dangerously


I have finally decided to stop being lazy and bring back the much requested (by those voices in my head) Bloggerazzi feature of BTBW.

For the grand re-opening (really I'm a nerd) I wanted to bring a true power house. A internet force. "Kit" of Blogging Dangerously. If you're on Twitter you probably know a bit about Ms. Kit here. She gets put in Twitter jail and host weekly #winepartys.

I can't remember how I found her blog but she truely is hysterical. Did you notice the quotations I put around her name? That's because her real name isn't Kit.

"Kit" has created a completely anonymous blog where she writes about everything I would want to but because my mom, grandmother, mother-in-law, Pastor, and other various IRL people read my blog I steer clear of these topics. But that's ok because "Kit" gives much more to these taboo topics then I ever could.


Please, please stop by and check her blog out and follow her on Twitter and you won't be disappointed

And you'll notice by one of the questions that this should have gone up last Saturday. But because of my brain aneurysm it had to wait.

Disclaimer: If you consider yourself very reserved or refer to sex wth your husband as "The Act of Marriage" I would highly suggest you NOT read this interview (She says the "O" word) and certainly wouldn't suggest you read her blog. But if you like crude humor and being shockingly awesome and taboo and totally inappropriate check her out because you'll love it! 





What gave you the idea to start Blogging Dangerously?

I had another blog that I was really enjoying but there were a lot of things I couldn't say because I was afraid that it would get back to people.  I thought that if I had an anonymous blog I could treat it more like a true diary.

If you could only choose one bad baby sitter for your kids for the rest of their childhood what would it be, TV or video games?

Video Games because at least video games require puzzle solving skills, hand-eye coordination and interaction. 

 Since you write a lot about sex its only fitting I ask a sex question right? What is the number one thing you think couples can do so sex doesn't become a chore?

Don't make an appointment for sex.  If you feel like you have to do it you won't want to do it - even if you were in the mood all day.  Of course if you wait until the time is PERFECT you'll never have sex either - so wait until conditions are favorable (not absolutely perfect) and then GO FOR IT!

One random fact about yourself?  

I haven't eaten chocolate since 1989.

 It's 5 PM and after surfing the net all day, Tweeting, and blogging you realize you have to feed your kids. What's your go to meal?

I am totally Obsessive Compulsive so my goto meal is whatever is on the calendar for the day.  Sunday is grilled cheese, Monday is Chicken, Tuesday is pasta, etc...

 What's your favorite thing to do with your husband (besides knocking boots < do the "kids" still say that?)

My husband is a stay at home dad so my favorite thing to do is to listen to him tell stories of what my children did or said that day. 

What does your husband think about your uncensored blog? 

My husband thinks it's funny - just as long as I never 'come out' and reveal who HE is.

The house is empty. Your kids are with friends. Your husband is out of town. What do you do? 

Just the thought of that PARALYZES me with the possibilities.  I would probably orgasm (can I say orgasm on your blog?) and then "try to get something done"; work, blogging, even getting through my magazine pile!

What are you hoping to get for Mothers Day? And please be honest none of those "Aww just more time with my kids" answers.

As the breadwinner and bookkeeper in the family I dont really get excited by large purchases.  This definitely takes the fun out of Christmas, Birthdays and Mother's Day! I got a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a sweet card.  I love diamonds and would love an anniversary band/mother's ring at some point but not now.

Is Blogging Dangerously your only blog? If not what's the URL to the OTHER blog? You have to tell! I'm dying to know!!!

I'll never tell!
