Welcome! This is the last Five Question Friday of 2011! 🙂

As always, you may answer these questions in your own post or in the comments section!

This 5 Question Friday was brought to you by:

On to the questions!

1. What’s the oldest piece of clothing in your closet? I’m not sure…I probably need to throw away some clothes…I think I still own a few items back from a decade ago? And I have some baby clothes for when I have a baby, if it’s a girl anyways, lol…that my Mom and Nanny gave to me to save…
2. How many random blog readers have you met? None, really…the only ones I see that are my blog readers are my friends from around here and my family…
3. Do you let your kids stay up till midnight on New Years Eve? (Or, if you don’t have kiddos yet, did you get to stay up until midnight as a child?) If I had kids, I would let them stay up because it’s a special occasion and I was always allowed to stay up as a child myself…It was considered a special privilege 🙂 But then again, I never had a strict bedtime, because I always went to bed at a decent time myself as a child…
4. What are the gas prices where you live? Last time I looked it was around $3.24, but it depends on what place you go to…
5. What is one resolution that you know you should do but are too afraid to try? I don’t believe in resolutions because they’re are so hard to keep and no one hardly ever does so they are like broken promises to yourself…There are personal changes I would like to make in my life but the issue is not being too afraid, it’s more that I haven’t found the motivation yet to go for it…


  1. Resolutions are all about motivation. There’s no point making any if you’re not going to be motivated. That’s why so many people fail. Sometimes you feel less pressured when you just put something on your to-do list, and just get it done.


    1. I’m hoping my “12 in ’12” challenge works for me since it’s small steps monthly on the path to a bigger goal of making good changes for myself. 🙂 I’m going to try to make each small step something that I AM motivated to make a habit in my life.


  2. 1. In age of item, probably a dress my Nan wore as a young woman. I can’t get into it, but I keep it for sentimental reasons. In age of fashion, that would be my Viking re-enactment clothes 🙂 The oldest thing of my own I’m not sure, but I have a sweater with a horse head on that my Mum knitted for me while I was a teenager. I could probably still squeeze into it, but it’s not exactly the height of fashion these days!

    5. I do like to make resolutions, but the way I do it has evolved over the years from the always broken within a week childhood ones like writing a diary every day to a far more useful goal setting technique which involves breaking down big ideas into small achievable steps. The main one which ought to be on there but won’t is to tackle my admin-phobia. The reason it won’t be on there is it’s still too big and it’s better to tackle things you can face. So my main one to tackle is going to be called the Home Beautification Project. I hate tidying up, it’s boring and tedious, so rephrasing it and trying a different angle is my new tactic! Plus, if I get my home beautiful and well-functioning, admin will become easier… I hope… 🙂


    1. Wow, a sweater with a horse head on it! 🙂

      I tried to do my “12 in ’12” challenge with the smaller steps towards a bigger goal and my bigger goal is just to make myself better all around, which I feel is completely achievable! 🙂


  3. 1. Oh gosh… remember 80’s skinny leg stretch denim jeans with fancy stuff like slits, bows, snaps, or zippers at the ankles? Yep. And someday, I shall wear them again!
    2. None
    3. Yeah… she’d try to stay awake long enough, didn’t always make it.
    4. I have no idea… I don’t buy gas.
    5. My resolution was to make two phone calls… first to see if I can take a water exercise class, and second to arrange transportation. Done. (Yeah, use resolutions to launch new things, so not actually resolving to do it all year.)

    Thanks for letting me play! Happy New Years.
