Introducing... Caden from The Randomosity of Southern Fried Domestication!

Tuesday, April 8, 2014

A couple weeks ago, I got an email from Stephanie from Wife, Mommy, Me wondering if I would be interested in participating in a Sponsorship Program that she was hosting. She would take everyone who was interested in participating and partner them up with someone and together those two people would help grow, share and sponsor their partners blog. I thought this was a great idea because 1) I'm always interested in meeting new friends (real life or blogger friends), 2) I'm all for helping someone grow their blog and 3) it was free and an awesome opportunity!
With that, today I have the pleasure of introducing you to my new bloggy friend, Caden. She blogs over at The Randomosity of Southern Fried Domestication

So, without further ado... I introduce to you all... Caden!


Hello! My name is Caden and I blog over at The Randomosity of Southern Fried Domestication.

I am so excited to be here introducing myself! I will just jump right in!
I met my husband March 2011 by picking him out on a coworkers Facebook friends list. He was a family friend of hers. I never much cared for facial hair. At All. But my husband has a stash kissed by baby cupids. Love. At. Fist. Sight.

We are originally from Arkansas and in July 2012 my family and I relocated to San Antonio, Texas. I am a stay at home mom to our SweetBabyLoveNug who turns one May 13th!  He is our absolute pride and joy! 

I love photography, scrapbooking, travel, camping, fishing, hiking, kayaking, amusement parks, cooking, crafts, movies, reading, and shopping. I have a –Mild- obsession with make-up. Well. It may be just a tad more than “mild” obsession. We just won’t tell my husband I admitted it to the world wide interwebs.


Now that you know a little bit about her... here are a few questions that we came up with so you could get to know her a little bit better!


How did you come up with the name of your blog?

I have always loved the word “Randomosity” and used it all the time when I was going to college. I am very random and always jump from topic to topic. Squirrel. Southern Fried also ties into the fact that I can’t go anywhere without someone looking at me and going “You are not from around here are you?” No. No I am not. Long story short. I sound like a REALLY BIG HICK - ….apparently. Well. Or so I have been told. How was I supposed to know that my Granny was the only one who used the word “blatherskyted”? Or that a certain phrases meant that you had “COUNTRY BUMPKIN” across your forehead? Not I, but I pride myself on being Southern. Domestication is pretty self-explanatory. Basically, the title of my blog sums up my life of having a family, being southern, and being ME. It just hit me one night. Boom, it was a done deal.

Where were your born?

I was born in Fayetteville, Arkansas where my mom worked at Washington Regional Medical Center. Also where my brother was born 13 years later.

Do you have any pets?

Yes, yes I do! Can I count the baby? JUST KIDDING. We have three sweet baby ferrets Tulula, Borris, and Dag. We got their names from NickJr and Guy Richie films. We have 2 African cichlids, 1 blood parrot, and 1 shady Plecostomus. We also have Eleanor the strange cat from the middle of the desert, and Lana the cat I dragged home about a week and a half ago.

If money was not an issue, where would you go on a dream vacation?

This is always a hard one. In my head when I think of “Perfect Vacation” the image that pops up is the beach. Somewhere NOT in the United States. With tropical jungles and crystal clear waters. Then I get home and get to really thinking and then am like….WAIT A MINUTE NO! What I REALLY want is to travel to Europe get a train pass and just go. Go everywhere. Shopping in Paris. The Orient Express. Ride the Ferris Wheel. See the art. Take tons of pictures. Go see AS MANY countries as I possibly can and make the BIGGEST scrapbook ever in the world. THAT is my dream vacation.

What are 3 things on your bucket list?

I want to go Noodling in Oklahoma. I want to road trip around the United States as a family vacation with all my children, including the 2 that are not here yet haha! (and they must all be at an age to remember). Another bucket list item is weigh 150. Don’t Laugh!

If you were a Disney character, who would you be and why?

You may hate me after I say this. I am not a huge fan of Disney movies. There are a few that I like but for the most part I am not into princess stories. I have not seen Frozen yet – but I DO want to. I also want to see Maleficent and I am pretty sure I would prefer that to the original Sleeping Beauty. Buttttttt I will give an answer, it is a toss-up between Alice and Belle. In the end, Alice is the winner winner chicken dinner. I am just as crazy as the next loon so I would be the first one down that rabbit hole! Only….I think I would carry around the big/small shrooms that way I don’t have to wait until chance to use them. Oh. Plus I think PETA needs to get on that Queen about her abuse of hedgehogs and flamingos.

What are 3 things you can't live without?

Assuming that family – husband, children, fur babies are a complete and total given I will start by being a typical American and saying for starters …my phone. It is my most annoying addiction. Secondly would be my kick-boo-tay Camera, and my Urban Decay primer potion. 

What are 3 things about yourself that you LOVE TO PIECES?

I love my sense of humor. Sometimes I just crack myself up and other times I am glad I have a sense of humor otherwise there are some dinners what people would have left with a black eye.

I think I have really really pretty lips. My mom would call the “Cupid Bow”. No matter how big or how small I get, my lips are always the perfect size!

My SUPER POWER Intuition! I know everything about someone in two seconds. I can
scan a room and know who is faking friends, who is cheating on their husband/wife, who just got terrible news but is keeping it to themselves, and that “Female Friend” dynamic. I loveeeee this about me. I should be that psych guy lol and I didn’t need a cop for a dad.  

What is your biggest fear?

I think my biggest fear is being REALLLLY far out in a MASSIVE body of water where I cannot touch, I cannot see in the water, and something hits my foot. No. No. No. No. Not so much drowning, but the thoughts that would go through my head of how it is going to happen before something happens you know?  Will a Shark get me? Do the Mermaids want revenge? Is the Loch Ness Monster down there? Will I die of exhaustion? The thoughts of not seeing my family. Alllll that in combination with the “point of no return”. Ick! Horrifying.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve is people who think they are better than someone else. Oh, and snarky women. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

If you could go back and give your 18 year old self some advice, what would it be?


Do you prefer card games or board games?

Board games!! I LOOOOOVVVVVEEEE THEM. I also seem to be the only one. Except it takes a “certain” mood to play monopoly.

What is the most daring or dangerous thing you’ve ever done?

I am not sure. Bluff jumping maybe? I am sure if you ask my mother she would have more ideas!

Can you change the oil on a car?

No. No I Cannot. But I am willing to learn!!

When you were a kid, what did you dress up as for Halloween?

A pumpkin, Cleopatra, Mythological forest imp, and a zombie ..twice. I didn’t get out much. I cannot remember the rest!

What is your most embarrassing moment?

You are sure you want to know? Turn back now, while you still have time!
 Well, we had been home about 6 weeks with the baby and at the time I was still breastfeeding. We had been sitting on the couch and I was wearing these really comfy, really adorable nursing PJs and Nugget was passed out sleeping. We have been watching TV and chillaxing then there is a knock on the door. I go and open it to find a stuttering red faced 15 year old who cannot spit out what he is trying to sell but he is obviously wanting me to buy something. I am assuming it is for a fundraiser. He just turns around and RUNS off. I am just like. OhhhhhhhhK?! I go sit back down. Knock Knock Knock. The kid has returned with a tall lanky pimply sidekick with a backwards hat. Mr. Lanky swoops in front of his bashful tongue tied friend and starts a sales pitch for….caramel popcorn? Did I mention while doing an extremely silly job of attempting to flirt and asking if my husband is home?! I am just like… “Do your parents know where you are” THEN I notice he isn’t looking at my face. I look down. My stomach drops.  My nipple had popped out of my nursing top and I JUST NOTICED. I slapped his hat off his head (which is not assaulting a minor) and slammed the door and went in and changed clothes. I never looked at those PJs EVER again. I WAS MORTIFIED.  

If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?

Invisibility. I would never have to pay for plane tickets again haha!!!

What is in your purse right now?

Welll…… Usually a camera but I dumped my purse out and used it to take a picture. We just got back from a BBQ so don’t judge on the American Honey. And no. I wasn’t driving. I have all my drag …I have so many things floating around that I couldn’t fit them all into my makeup bag. A hair brush. A taser.  Keys, baby socks, sd cards, perfume, and back up ranch!!
