5QF 3/23/2012

After a week of dreary, cooler, rainy weather, today is GORGEOUS outside! 77 and sunshine! Yeah!! And the weekend is supposed to be even better! Happy Friday! Jump over to Mama M's and join in the fun!
1. If you were free to just hop in the car and drive, where would you go? Or, if you could hop a plane and go anywhere, where?
As shocking as this sounds, I would head to a beach. I know, I NEVER NEVER NEVER want to go to a beach. But I need the sounds of waves crashing, I want to lay and get a tan, (dang, I am WHITE!!), and I want to drink a fruity alcohol filled drink.
I think with my husband having surgery last week, our life has been crazy, and I have been a wee-bit overwhelmed, so crashing waves, sun, and a drink sound might good right about now.

2. What's your most recently read favorite book?
Without a doubt, 100% no questions asked, Fifty Shades series. I know, its smut, it has some BDSM in it, but man oh man, it is the best story line EVER. I mean people say its porn, well its not, its sex. And if you don't like sex, then skim over that part. It's only a page or two at a time. It's not like that is the entire book. You could take out that part of the book, and the story line would still be amazing.

3. What's your favorite Spring Break memory?
In college, (or maybe high school), skiing with a t-shirt, sunglasses, boxers, and long johns, because it was sooooo nice. Carefree, fearless (read: stupid), and enjoyed every minute of it.
4. What do you put in your child's Easter basket? Or, for those w/o kids, what was put in your childhood basket?
I don't put candy in them. Mainly games, or toys, or goodies. This year, I hit up the $ section at Target, and went crazy. Like stupid crazy, but they had so much cute stuff for both of my kids, so it worked out great!

5. Do you get a summer haircut?
Not a haircut, but I do go a little blonder. Matter of fact, got my hair did today, and I LOVE it! In the winter, I let it get more natural, with just a FEW blonde highlights, and more brown highlights. But today, we did LOTS more blonde, and a few brown, and then brown underneath.
Big weekend around here. Errr really just for me. There is a big Crossfit to-do in the area this weekend, so I am going to check that out, while my husband, babysitter, and the kids hang out. I know, its not fair, but at least I got him a babysitter, so he will not have to take care of the kids. :)
I'm nice like that!!
Happy Friday yall!!

Five Question Friday 3/16/2012

Happy iPad Friday to Mama M . I know that she has been waiting for her iPad!! Also happy Five Question Friday! Here we go!
1. Will you run to the store or to pick up a kid looking a mess?
Absolutely! I workout every morning so many times I am out in workout clothes, post workout, all kinds of hot and sweaty! Doesn't matter to me.

2. Do you finish a book if it's boring or you don't like it?
Nope! And I am not a reader, so I really have to like it in order to read it. My smut book that I have been reading? Can't put it down.

3. Beach or mountain vacations?
Mountains, always mountains. Except, if I don't have to get in the water. Give me a beach, with a fruity drink, and I will lay there all day long and do nothing!

4. What thing/event says "winter will end and spring is right around the corner" to you?
Bluebonnets showing up on the side of the highway! What is a bluebonnet you might ask? Well it is the state flower of Texas and it looks like this:
When they start showing up on the side of the road, it is a sure sign spring is on the way. And guess what? They showed up last week!!!
5. Would you prefer couples or family vacation?
Well, usually I would say couples, but I am so excited to take my kids to Disneyworld, I can't wait!! We have changed our trip (since my husband had surgery this week) to the fall (don't want to go in the summer!) so now we can start planning!
Ok, have a great Friday!!

5 Question Friday 3/8/12

Ok, I know it's Sunday, but it's finally done!

1. Are you looking forward to the time change this weekend?
I love my sleep way to much for this. Plus it makes my kids all jacked up. The only advantage? It's spring break wee, so I have a week to get them back on track!

2. Are you getting the new iPad/would you want a iPad?
Have it. Love it, can't live without it. Amen.

3. If money was not a problem, what is the one thing you would splurge on?

Vacation home in the mountains. Snow, cooler weather in the summer. Yeah, that the ticket.
And, a new Camero. My oh my! I test drove one a few weeks ago while getting my oil changed. It was a stick, with a corvette engine, and oh my. I was IN LOVE. I want one. *drool*

4. How did you and the Mr. (or Mrs.) meet?

We met at college, during summer clases we were taking. He was wearing a baseball player shirt, and well, I have this thing for baseball players, so I asked him if he was a player. He was a pitcher as a matter of fact. For our college team. Enough said.

5. Summer is right around the corner. Bikini or one-piece?
well, I swore I would never wear a two piece again. Getting too old and all that business, but this Crossfit thing of mine I have been doing, might have well just changed my mind. We will see in a few more months!

Alright, happy what's left od the weekend!

3/2/2012 Five Question Friday

Howdy howdy! Hope yall have had a great week. Jump on over to Mama M's and join in on the fun!

1. Where is your favorite vacation spot and why?
Well I am not much a beach kinda person. If you remember this post you know why. But I do love the sun and a adult beverage with a pretty little umbrella in it. But I digress...... I am much more of a mountainy kinda person. Colorado is one of my favorite places. Also Nova Scotia was gorgeous and would love to go hope is next year. But regular vacay? Colorado

2. What is your biggest guilty pleasure?
Food or stuff? Food....cake balls. Love em. All of em, red velvet, chocolate, peanut butter, pink lemonade, watermelon, lemon, fun fetti....I could go on and on.
Stuff? Right now? Lululemon clothes. I love them. They are cute, they are stylish, they are stupid expensive for workout clothes, but they are my guilty pleasure.

3. What is your favorite fashion trend right now? Or, in the past? (hee hee, my question)
Luckily, the "cowgirl look" is in right now, so that fits me perfectly, since that is who I am. I also am loving the long shirt/tunic with leggings.

4. What are your spring break plans? Nada. Just hanging out with my kiddo. This is our first spring break, so I guess I should have planned something. And it was going to be Disneyworld, but since my husband is having foot surgery, that has now been postponed until September. So, pretty much nothing super special. A movie, or two probably.

5. What baby names do you hate?
Matthew, Callie, Alexa, Rex, Alec..... HA HA HA!!! Kidding!! KIDDING!!! Those of you who those are your children's names know I am kidding!!

 I don't hate any baby names. Really, not being PC or anything like that, but I don't. There are some that there is no way in God's green earth that I would ever name my kid some, but I don't hate them. At least nothing comes specifically to mind.

Supposed to be 76 again today! Love me some 70s. Have a great weekend peeps!!!
