5QF 6-29-12

It's Friday! And not just any Friday, Friday before a holiday, which is like extra special Friday!! And Mama M  picked one of my questions this week! Woo hoo!!

Let's get going!

1. What's your favorite childhood snack that you still eat as an adult?
Fudge Rounds, Swiss Cake Rolls, and Oatmeal Cream pies by Little Debbie. Do you have these? OMG, so incredibly good, and yet so bad for you at the same time!

2. What food will you not eat the low fat version of?
Lost of things. Most of the time, low fat is ofter worse for you as it has chemicals instead. I can't think of anything in particluar.

3. What's your favorite way to cool off during the summer?
With a cool beverage in a pool. Always relaxing and keeps me cool. But seeing as I don't have a pool, I don't get to do that very often.

4. What's your favorite summer read?
I don't have a certain Summer read, just a read in general. Yea, you guessed it. Fifty Shades. It's pretty much good anytime of the year. :)

5. What are you doing to stay cool in this awful heat?
Well, it isn't awful heat for us just yet. Its still normal summer heat. When it starts getting above 105, then it is awful. But either way, it is still hot. Mostly staying inside. Which drives my kids crazy, but lots of crafts, and popsicles make em happy!

Alrighty, go get your America on (unless you are Kate, and then you go get your Canada on I guess), and everybody have a great holiday!

5QF 6/8/12

How is possible that one week of summer is already gone! If the rest of the summer goes this quickly, I'm going to be getting ready for 1st grade soon! Plus, I was in Children's Place this week and they already have their fall line out? What is that about?

So because it is Friday, that means it is time for Five Question Friday over at Mama M's

1. Did you do anything special for your kids on the last day of school? Or did you parents do anything special for you?
This year Love Bug was in Kindergarten, so I wanted to do something, but not too big as to set a prescedent. So, they got out at 11:00 that day, and me and her best friend, (who happens to be my best friends daughter), went to lunch, and then to the yogurt store, and then the girls came back here to play. Fun for them. I don't remember my mom and dad doing anything special until college. Then on the last day of my last class of my college career, my mom, sister, best friend (yes same friend as above) all went and got drunk to celebrate. That was pretty memorable!

2. What's your favorite summer tradition with your children?
I don't know that we have one thing in particular that is our favorite. Eating Popsicles, playing in the water, shooting fireworks at 4th of July. We have lots of fun things that we do, but nothing that is a tradition.

3. What was your favorite thing to do during the summer as a kid?
Going to Camp Ozark each year for 8 years straight. Ozark is a Chrisitian sports adventure camp in Arkansas and I went every year for 2 weeks. I made so many friends, had so much fun. Learned so much about myself, and who I am, who I wanted to be. It was a great experience, and I know my kids will be going as well.

4. How old were you when you were married? Were you a Bridezilla?
I feel like such an old bride, and I know that I'm wasn't. I was 28. And I guess the reason I felt so old is that we started dating 9 years before we got married. I guess he wasn't for sure, I don't know what took him so long. We bought a house 2 years before we got married which is weird. I don't think I was a bridezilla until about 2 weeks before. And then I got a little crazy bitch! :)

5. What is your favorite girl name?
Well, I didn't have to narrow down names when I found out Love Bug was a girl. My husband's grandmother was very special to him, and she died years ago. And we knew before we knew Love Bug was a girl, what we would name her. But with Baby Bug, if he would have been a girl, I thought of Audrey. And that was it. I had no other names. And since then, I have never thought bout any name since then. Sorry, I'm no help.

Alright, go join  the Five Question Friday fun! I'm headed to the Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, and Jake Owen concert tomorrow night at Cowboys Stadium. I have never been there, but I hear its pretty cool. My 3 girlfriends and I are going and making a mini weekend out of it. Leaving early tomorrow, going to the hotel and staying as long as we can on Sunday. Mini girls trip? I think so!!!
