{June 24, 2011}   Five Question Friday for June 24th,2011

It’s that time again!

The time where I answer five completely random questions and you can choose to do the same either through answering in the comments or on your own blog!

I can’t believe June is almost over, time sure does fly!

This 5 Question Friday was brought to you by:

On to the questions!

1. What is your current favorite tv show? I’m never any good at narrowing favorites down to just ONE thing but I’m just going to go with my favorite at the moment(meaning the first one that comes to mind)-So you think you can dance?
I just LOVE this show! I love seeing all the different styles of dance, the great group numbers and duets, the special guest dancers, the cool costumes…it’s just an awesome show!
2. What’s the worst haircut you ever got? When I was a little kid, I had long hair(as in past my butt) and I loved it BUT I wasn’t too keen on the daily brushing and maintenance of it. Because I had naturally curly hair, my hair has always tangled so easily and it got to be a major pain on my mom and Nanny when they would have to brush all the tangles out. Then, I started getting migraines around the age of 6 and my mom thought the weight of my hair could have some reasoning behind it. I’ve always had really thick hair and if I don’t get it thinned every few months, I will break hair clips and ponytail holders easy!
So….I gave in to having my hair cut short and I hated it. It became very kinky curly as it was lighter and looked very much like an afro. It was a major target for people to make fun of and I just dreaded it. Eventually, I got my mom to let me grow it out and I don’t EVER plan on having it short again. It’s just NOT for me!
3. What was something that you did as a child that you thought you were so cool for doing? I don’t know…the first thing that really pops into my head is probably when I used to put on these little talent shows. It was during a time when my nieces from Indiana were living with us and I always thought that was cool. I also liked to record songs directly from the radio and then do my own little commentary and radio shows in between the songs on the cassette tapes. I still have some of those tapes and it’s interesting hearing me talk on them…and maybe a little embarrassing too.
4. Do you have any GREAT frugal family fun tips? Not really. There’s a lot of things you can do that are completely free and some that you wouldn’t expect. The internet can be a great resource for coupons and specials as well as alerting you to special events where places are half price or even free for the day. I actually printed off loads of coupons for my own honeymoon this way!
5. Would you drive across country if you had the money to fly? It depends. I’ve never driven across country and I LOVE to drive so it would be fun someday to do a cross country road trip!
BUT if you have a limited time to travel, then flying IS quicker. If you have all the time you want to get where you’re going, then yes, I pick driving. 🙂
How would YOU answer these questions? I’m really curious to see if anyone has some super secret frugal tips and I would love to hear about them! 
Have a fun weekend!

Good list, Sharon. Here’s mine:

1. The Mentalist
2. When a hairdresser learned I was an attorney . . . she scalped me.
3. Learning to ride a bike, tie my shoes, whistle, and snap my fingers.
4. http://nrhatch.wordpress.com/2010/05/04/ten-free-activities-to-enjoy-with-kids/
5. I’ve done several cross country trips. Now, I’d stay home and enjoy the beauty in my own backyard.



Yikes! That hair “cut” sounds like the worst haircut I have ever heard of!

1. I haven’t had tv for a long time, but when I did I really liked watching HGTV!!
2. When I was a kid, my mom let the hairdresser talk us into some popular 80s triple length business- Super short on one side, long in the back and a bob on the other side or something horrible- the first person that saw my fresh haircut asked “Oh no! What happened?!” I cried A Lot!
3. OH wow!!! I used to do the same thing! I would be a dj and announce what song I was going to play and why… I guess it was the little kid version of Rosa’s Picks?
4. Camping trips!!
5. Yes! That way my dog, Sugarfoot, can go with me!!



Rosa says:

PS. Thanks for joining my give-away!!



You’re welcome! Sounds like fun!



That sounds like a horrific hairdo! Did you get it recut and just have to end up with a bob all around?
How cool that you liked to pretend you were a DJ like I did! And I guess it was like a little kid version of your Rosa’s Picks…except with music instead of paintings!



I love So You Think You Can Dance too! I’ve been missing most of the episodes this season because I’ve been out Wednesday nights, but I’m hoping to catch up on the online videos soon…sometimes they freeze and get messed up though which is a pain!



Yeah, I don’t know what I would do without a DVR….I guess I would be recording everything by video tape like I used to so I didn’t miss my favorite shows.



You really should drive cross country with your husband once, especially before having kids (there’s no way you want to do that with kids!). I drove from CT to CA in 6 days in 1997 and that was a great experience I encourage everyone to have for themselves.



Yea, I would really love to but it’s something that me and my hubby will have to decide upon and then agree to save the money for. Gas is so expensive as you know! 😦
I hope we get to one day!



The gas part is not what’s expensive, but rather the hotel stops. When I moved from CT to CA, we stayed at Motel 6 so it wasn’t much, but they really were crappy motels…



True…that too! Well…I’m supposedly banned from Motel 6, per my honeymoon story…LOL
But I checked in under a different last name, so i guess I’d be fine now that I have a new last name! Still…..you are most definitely right in the fact that Motel 6’s are pretty crappy motels. 😦

Good job on your answers…. 🙂
I’ve been AWOL lately… just from exhaustion and the hectic pace of life. 🙂



Thanks!
It’s understandable, life can be crazy!
