Friday Fun!

I haven’t had too much to say this week.  It’s been a little bit of a boring week so I decided I’ll participate this week again in Fill in the Blank Friday and Five Question Friday.

We have lots planned for this weekend, so I’ll probably have lots to say next week!

I’m so happy that it rained last night and washed away some of the pollen.  My red car is no longer yellow!

I hope that you all have a great weekend!

Fill in the Blank Friday!

  1. The strangest thing I’ve ever eaten was Rattlesnake – it was kinda chewy and a little gross.
  2. My best Female friend is Marcy, she keeps me sane and really understands everything.  She just needs to move back to the East Coast.  It’s hard to only talk to her every other week or so because she’s all the way out in CA.  It’s hard to pick just 1 though.
  3. If I could live in a different era it would be Early 1900’s because I’d love to know what it was like to live in ‘simpler’ times and what my Great Grandmother lived through.
  4. I like when people do things for others without being asked.  I love the car insurance (I think it’s Allstate) commercial where someone see’s someone do something nice and pays it forward and so on.
  5. If you only know one thing about me it should be that I will try my hardest to please almost anyone.
  6. My favorite book of all time is currently ‘The Help’.  I just finished it and I really liked it, so it’s moved to the top of my list.  I couldn’t put it down.  Before that it was probably To Kill a Mockingbird, but I haven’t read that in a while.
  7. The one beauty product I couldn’t live without is cover-up, I don’t wear much else but cover-up, blush and eye-shadow.  My face is a little red lately so the cover-up is a life saver.
  8. Blogging is new to me and I’m enjoying it.  It’s my ‘secret’ from my friends and my own little world.  I hope to make many more ‘blog friends’ and continue blogging for a while.  I just hope there are people out there actually reading what I write.  🙂
  9. If I could star in a movie with any actor/actress I would want to work with Anne Hathaway, I like her in some of the roles she’s played and reminds me of myself a little.
  10. One of the best feelings in the world is laying in bed cuddling with KC and Miss Maya jumps up to join us.  We’re one little happy family.
Five Question Friday

1. Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?
Anne Hathaway – Same as above – I don’t really have a good reason except that I like her. 🙂
2. Did you ever go to summer camp?
Every summer for about 5 years I was at a Basketball or Soccer camp (some years both).   I loved going to camps and meeting new kids and improving my sports skills.
3. What sends you running and screaming in the other direction?
Lots of things.  Bugs (the more legs the farther I go), any type of surgery on tv, Reptiles (and their nasty tongues).  Last night we watched ‘Life’ (narrated by Oprah) and there were Komodo Dragons on the show.  They were huge and had some gross looking tongues.
4. What is something you do that drives your spouse nuts?
Hmm, right now I would say it drives him nuts that I won’t kill the spiders and gross bugs that seem to be around.
5. What is currently your favorite song?
Lady Antebellum – “I Was Here” or Britt Nicole – “Walk on Water

New Friend Friday!

Click on over to participate yourself or let me know if you stopped by from there.

1.  The strangest thing I’ve ever eaten was at a restaurant in Kenya called Carnivore…all you can eat meat.  I tried ostrich meatballs, goat and crocodile.  The goat was pretty tasty .

2.  My best friend is the greatest.  He’s funny and sweet and pretty darn cute.  Oh yeah…and by the way Craig…it’s you 🙂 .

3.  If I could live in a different era it would be the 1950’s because  I really like the idea of cooking in heels and pearls, plus I feel like things were probably simpler then…not perfect, but simpler .

4.  I like when people practice random acts of kindness.  It makes the world a happier place to .

5.  If you only know one thing about me it should be that I love Jesus.  I’m not perfect in my faith…I actually struggle often, but I’m trying to love others the way He did…without judgement and/or expectation.  It’s a work in progess .

6.  My favorite book of all time is “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” by Judith Viorst.  I had the entire thing memorized when I was a kid .

7. The one beauty product I couldn’t live without is it’s a tie between under eye concealer and blush.  I just can’t decide.  I have olive toned skin, so I look like death warmed up without any blush, but I also get terrible dark circles, so I don’t think I could do without that either.  Oh…and P.S.  any suggestions for miracle working dark circle removing creams are much appreciated 🙂 .

8.  Blogging is something that makes me very happy.  It’s been such a great way to express myself creatively, and my blog has become sort of like my “baby” and I enjoy putting time into it and watching it grow and change.  And more than anything I’ve made so many great friends through blogging and you all encourage me daily with your sweet comments. .

9.  If I could star in a movie with any actor/actress I would want to work with Zooey Deschanel.  I have a total girl crush on her…along with every other girl in the known world.  I think she’d be so much fun.  Although, I might actually choose Morgan Freeman.  He’s pretty much awesome .

10. One of the best feelings in the world is when Craig comes up and hugs me in the middle of a fight, and all my frustration melts away and I feel safe and loved .
