day 6

day 6: your celebrity crush


It's this guy.

You don't know who Andrew Garfield is?!? What?! That's okay. I didn't know who he was until I saw the facebook movie. Thank you Mark Zuckerberg. Yeah I might have had ulterior motives when I gave this Details magazine to my hubby for valentines day. I don't think he got a chance to read it before I cut out all his pictures. But I keep telling Devy it's because of his hair! And if you've met my hubby, you know that I'm big on big hair.

So Andy is gonna be the next Spiderman. And I love me some Spiderman. Well I liked the 1st movie... Nonetheless I am excited!

And my celebrity crush if I were a boy.. Although I've never really been so secret about this one even though I'm a girl.

Team Aniston forever! She got her haircut so I'm gonna have to make an appointment with my hairstylist. Yes I was one of those girls who just had to get "The Rachel." Yes I was also 7 years old. Like I said, Team Aniston forever!

day 5

day 5: your parents

Ted & Linda Madsen

Or as I used to try and convince all my friends, Theodore and Gwendalinda Madsen. Some believed me. Most didn't.
My parents are amazing. They are the most caring, selfless, generous, loving, wonderful people I know. The badonkatonkas had the pleasure of living with them over the summer and a bit into winter, which we did not plan, but my parents were more than okay with it. Currently the thing I love most about them (it changes a lot because there is so much to love) is how much Dexter loves them and vice versa. My mom has been so helpful to watch Dexter when I have to go into work and he always comes home with so many new tricks. My mom is so much better than baby einstein. I mean how many one year olds know not only where their eyes are but how to say it. And my dad is truly Dexters best friend. When we were living there, everytime Dex heard the garage open he'd run over to the door, lay down, and try to get the first glimpse of gramps thru the crack. Adorable right?

My parents are awesome.

day 4

day 4: meaning behind your blog name

I'd have to thank my friend Autumn for the origin of my blog name. When I got engaged my friends and I of course had to always address me as my soon to be married name, Cailey Tonks. Whenever I mentioned my last name, my friend Autumn would mention how it's like the big booties.

"Wha? What are you talking about silly Autumn?" I would say.

"You know, like a badonkatonk. Like, that there girl has got a mighty fine badonkatonk." She'd reply.

And I'd be all, "you crazy girl and I'm pretty sure it's badonkadonk as in honky-donk badonka donk."

Then she'd say "no it's badonkatonk."

Thus, badonkatonkas.blogspot.com

day 3

day 3: pet peeves

I have no pictures so use your imaginations. If you're anything like me you will totally get ticked off at your imagination for thinking of these things.

pet peeve 1- Cyclists who think they are cars and then when it's convenient go back to being a bike rider.

They get up all in your driving business, you have to sit and wait for them, try to figure out a way to get around them and it bugs. Then us cars are all waiting at the red light and the cyclist is like "oh I'll just mosey on over to the sidewalk here and keep riding on." One of these days I will push one over so be warned if you like bike riding next to cars.

pet peeve 2- People who crowd around the shopping rack that I was clearly at first.

Seriously, wait your turn.

pet peeve 3- Chewing loudly or with your mouth open.

It's awful and my poor husband can't ever enjoy a meal because I constantly ask him if he's chewing bolts. He's not even that loud of a chewer, I am just so very grossed out by chewing.

Those are my top 3. So you may not ever want to chew, shop, or bike really really close to me. I will destroy you.

day 2

day 2: your favorite movie

Can I have like 5 favs? Please, please.....Like 10? 50 favorites movies??

Okay I'll just narrow it down to the fav movies in my fav genre. Don't judge. But you probably should.

Yes I love From Justin to Kelly. You don't?!? I'm still very upset that they never put out a soundtrack. I even signed a petition. So what!?

Another favorite musical. Chicago! I worked at megaplex theaters for a week and was required to put my favorite movie on my nametag so I put this. You wouldn't believe how many times I got asked if I was from there.

Crazy for Swayze. I know it's not technically a "musical" but it's got dancing and it's dirty. What's not to love? Nobody puts baby in a corner...

This is from the beloved 1978 classic Grease. I watched this on a loop for 3 months straight and I plan to do it again if I can get Dex on board. But the only things he cares about are Ellen and DJ Lance Rock..

This isn't a musical but I find myself quoting this movie at least 3 times a day. 4 for you Glen Coco. You go Glen Coco.
My favorite movie(s).

Don't hate.

30 day shred day 1

So I've seen this on multiple blogs and I thought I'd give it a try... The badonkatonkas are doing the 30 day blog challenge!! Whoop. Of course I modified it a bit. For instance the first day required you to state 15 interesting facts about you and I changed it to 5. I hope I can think of that many!! That being said, this is obviously going to be monumental... Here's the list of things...

And so it begins...

day 1: recent picture of yourself and 5 interesting facts about you

This is me and my awesome son Dexter. Look at that faux hawk! Isn't he just lovely?!

*5 facts*

1. I can only eat tic tacs in even numbers. Just kidding. That's a quote from one of my fav tv shows, but you'll just have to wait til day 11 to find out which one. But truthfully when I turn up the volume on my tv it has to be on an even number. Odd ones scare me.

2. I am really good at guitar hero. Too bad it's being discontinued.

3. I loathe the "pregnant man". I mean he's not technically a man so I don't think it's appropriate for the he/she to pose topless for People magazine. It's ridiculous. I could be pregnant with a mustache too but ya don't see me going on Barbara Walters.

4. Speaking of People magazine... I'm addicted to magazines. US, People, Entertainment, Glamour, Instyle, Real Simple... Yep I'm a subscriber to all. I don't know what's going on with the presidents health care issue but I can tell you that his wife loves to shop at J.Crew.

5. I can sing the national anthem with my mouth shut. I should be on Ellen.

Alright day 1 down. Here's hoping we see a post for day 2!

P.S. A smorgasbord of posts are coming soon. But most likely not this week because the badonkatonks are going on vacay!
P.S.S. If anybody has some good tips for traveling on an airplane with a one year old I'd really appreciate. I'm terrified.



This kid loves his Brobee.

Never goes to sleep without him!

Rubie Boobie

As you may have seen from my sister Chelsheas blog.. It's Rubies birthday! But I didn't want her being the favorite aunt so I quickly swooped in. Plus I've got the most j'adorable pic of Rubs & Dex.

Happy birthday Rubie!!
