Welcome!

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. Are you a napper? Yes, I love napping! 🙂

2. What was your favorite subject in school? Most hated? My favorite subject was English and then Choir class the years I did Choir….Most hated was always P.E. with Math coming in close second

3. Did you have the something old new borrowed and blue at your wedding? What were they? Yes, but for the life of me, I don’t remember what I had for blue!…..Ugh, I hate when I forget stuff! The something “old” was my engagement ring because it was my hubby’s grandma’s ring, so it was an heirloom 🙂 The something new was my jewelry, although you could argue my dress and veil were new, too…….The something “borrowed” was a penny my sister gave me to tape to my shoe, which, unbeknownst to me until after my wedding came off of my shoe and retaped itself to the fifth step from the bottom of the staircase I walked down….How it got untaped and retaped is a mystery to me but number 5 has always been my lucky number! I “think” I had something blue on my garter but I just went and looked and it was just all white so maybe I had added a blue ribbon that came off? I don’t know! LOL

4. What one thing are you determined to do this summer? I am determined to stay out of the 100+ degree weather as much as possible…..everything else is kind of just up in the air at this point!

5. Ice cream or Popsicles? It depends on my mood, I don’t eat either of these THAT often…..I think when it’s hot outside, I actually would prefer snow cones or slurpees actually…




This is last week’s questions since I missed that week….and I was going to double up, but this week’s questions haven’t been posted yet! Therefore, there may be another post later today or tomorrow with this week’s questions.

Welcome!

Last Week’s Five

1. What advice would you give a couple getting married?  Marriage is NOT meant to be a fairy tale and if you are going into marriage thinking you will ALWAYS get along, then you’re in for a rude awakening…After you’re married for a bit, you’re going to get out of that lovey dovey feeling you had constantly that blinded you to every negative thing about each other, it WILL get to be harder to keep up your relationship and you WILL have to work at it to continue to make it work….BUT it’s worth it to work at it, nothing good ever came from just standing back and let things just work for themselves now, did it? 🙂


2. If you could tell your 16 year old self ONE thing, what would it
be?
You ARE beautiful, no matter what people say to you and don’t let your life be controlled by the fear of acceptance because there will ALWAYS be those that do not accept you, first and foremost, always believe in yourself and accept yourself and who cares if everyone else doesn’t?

3. What do you do to keep cool in the summer? (AC, windows, fans, swimming, etc.)   Stay indoors as much as possible with the Air Conditioner or Fans! 🙂

4. What did you (or your wife) crave most while pregnant? N/A because I have yet to ever BE pregnant….but I hope to be before I’m 30 🙂

5. Who is your favorite TV mom? Why? As cheesy as this sounds, I can’t really think of one off hand…..When I think of the best MOM, I think of MY own Mom and the ones on TV just can’t compare!

What do you think you’ll read next? Probably one of my saved books on the Kindle…and I have so many to choose from that your guess would be as good as mine!



So this is a few days late due to me being struck down Thursday night with some stomach bug from “the land below”……(H-E-double hockey sticks, in other words!)……..I am FINALLY feeling better so I am NOW doing my Friday post…Sorry about the lateness!

I also realize I am again a few days late on posting my new goal for May in my 12 in ’12 journey. After much consideration, I am naming May my No Goal Month, other than to work on the goals I already have started with. I just want to be a better me and not add anything to my plate this month.

BUT…without further ado, now to my questions and answers!

Welcome!

On to the questions!

1. What did you wear to prom? Include a picture if possible.  I never had a prom since I left regular high school (due to bullying) and ended up graduating at a type of school where you clock in, do work at your own pace and clock out…..While I still got a regular high school diploma, there was no prom and there are days where I am sad about that, but overall I am just happy I was able to push past the bullying and finish high school on time regardless


2. Would you rather be on the biggest loser or a food eating challenge? 
I would definitely pick Biggest Loser…I don’t need to GAIN weight…

3. Done fave sonic drink? Refreshing summer drink? I have NO clue what “Done” in front of fave means…but my fave sonic drink? Hmmm….Probably Limeade cause that’s what I order the most when I go there

4. What was your first car, and what did you call it?
 
My “first” car is the same car I still have and I have no real name for it, although I AM guilty of calling it “ghetto”, just because it’s falling apart….LOL

5. What’s one thing your child or spouse does that sends you over the edge?  No child, so I will answer this for the spouse….Uh…I have to pick just ONE thing? LOL…Probably when there’s a trash bag sitting right NEXT to him but he still can’t just drop it in the trash, it always ends up ON the floor next to the trash bag…and actually this goes for clothes beside the laundry basket too….Do ALL men do this???! What is so hard about moving their hand one more inch? Seriously?! In fact, sometimes it looks like he made more effort to miss the bag rather then make it! UGH! I wish I could invent a zapper to zap him every time he misses the bag! (P.s. I love you, honey! ) 😉



To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading? “American Gods” by Neil Gaiman-super long book at 665 pages!

What did you recently finish reading? “Forbidden Mind(Forbidden Trilogy, #1) by Kimberly Kinrade (I so want to read the next two now!)

What do you think you’ll read next? “Jemima J” by Jane Green-chick lit! 🙂

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
