5 Question Friday

Because this is my first public post, I FINALLY get to participate in  Mama M Five Question Friday! So head on over and have some fun!!

1. Do you have siblings and are you close with them?
I do have a sister. Just one, she is 4 years older than me. When we were growing up we were really close, and then she turned 12 and she was MEAN. MEAN MEAN MEAN! Or she would say that I was a brat, but whatever, semantics! But fast forward a handful of years, and she turned nice again. So much so, that when I was giving birth, she was in the delivery room for both of my kids. Now, I am not sure what I would do without her.!

2. Would you rather be slightly UNDER weight or slightly OVER weight?
Ugh! Hmmm, uh, well, ahem. I am lucky to say that most of my life I have been average or below average in my weight. Except while I was pregnant. We will not even talk about that. But after giving birth to my second child, it took a lot longer to get rid of the weight, even though I didn't gain as much. So for over a year, I would say I was slightly over weight. At least in my mind. And I didn't like the way I looked, or felt, or how clothes fit. So I am going to be ugly and say under weight. Would I ever tell my daughter that? Not in a million years!

3. What's your favorite State Fair food to splurge on?

We have a HUGE state fair where I live, and I have never been. Nope, never. But I have been to the Stock Show, and they sell fair food there. My favorite, by far, has to be Funnel Cakes. Hot, greasy, and full of powdered sugar.
Excuse me while I wipe the drool from my chin.
4. What are your thoughts on your kid(s) going to school in a few weeks?

My oldest starts Kindergarten in 2 weeks, and while she is ready, and excited, if not nervous, I am NOT. I don't want her to grow up,  I dont' want her to experience mean kids, bullys, and all the other negative things that happens when you get in school. She has been in her safe zone her whole life, and I know things are going to be different for her. Will she be fine? Of course! Will she love it? I'm sure.
But do I want her to stay with me forever? ABSOLUTELY! (Although I would probably lose my mind!!!)

5. Pool or Ocean?
OMG! POOL for sure! I am not a huge swimmer, I can, I just don't. And one of my fears of dying is drowning. Rip tides in the ocean, waves pulling you out to see. **Shudder***. NO thank you! I don't like the ocean so much, that like most people who go to someplace tropical for their honeymoon, we went to Canada! And loved it!



  1. I get to comment first!! YAY ME!!

    I was so sad when my children headed off to kindergarten. So much so, that I sat on the rock out front for the first day they went. (Half days, 3 hrs only). Yep, I'm that lame.

  2. Dang Kate. Beat me to be the first commenter. So, yeah...I know it was a few days ago, my bad. Been pure craziness around here!
    So glad you are "public" over here!!
    I'm with you...I hated seeing my kids off to K. Our 4th starts this fall, and it makes me so sad!
    Oh, and guess what? I had a funnel cake last night! YUM!!
