5QF 10-12-12

It's Friday and we have family pictures this weekend. Our first in 3 years! The weather is supposed to be great and fall like! :) Yea!! :)

So go and join Mama M's Five Question Friday fun!

1. Did you have any homecoming traditions?
It's so odd to me that people in Canada don't even know what Homecoming is. But, because it is our town's Homecoming this weekend, it brought back all kinds of high school memories.
First Friday is the day you get to wear your mum to school, and Friday night the girls take the guy to dinner and the game, and then Saturday, the guy takes the girl to dinner and the Homecoming dance.

Now, what is a mum you ask? Well, let me just show you:

So mums are what the girls are given the night before, or the morning of the Homecoming game. They have mini cow bells on them, so they are crazy annoying, but so much fun. Our names, and usually our school and the year, and then all kinds of tassels, and little crafty things. If your date is someone you are dating (or the guy is hoping you will want to) it might even include a Kiss Goodnight Pull. What that is, is a little ribbon thing, and it is all bunched up. Then when you kiss goodnight, the guy is supposed to pull it while he is kissing you. When the ribbon is all stretched out, you stop kissing.
There are single, double and triple mums. Then the guys get Garters. They are mini versions that go on their arms. I really think all guys hate them! :)

2. Do you ask your spouse before spending money?

Not usually. Unless it is a big ticket item. I know how much money we have in the bank, and as long as it stays full (our definition of full) I am good. Big ticket items (birthday, Christmas presents, etc) we always talk about first.

3. If you could be famous for something what would it be?
Something worth while. A cure for a disease, or leaving a ton of money to a foundation, something meaningful for sure. Definitely not the Lindsay Lohan/Kim K. type of famous.

4. Have you ever seriously thought you were going crazy?No, thankfully I haven't. Usually I am pretty even-keeled person. I stress but just for a little while. Most of the time I stay pretty ok.

5. How do you eat your steak? Burger? (as in, well done, medium, still moo-ing...)
Burger? Done. No pink at all.
Steak, I think a thick line of pink. But no bleeding, no mooing. That is NASTY!!!

Happy Friday yall! Happy Homecoming to us! :)

5qf 10-5-12

Ohigosh since my last blog post so many things have happened!
Baby Bug turned 3 and had a great party at the fire station.  Love Bug turned 7 and we had a great party at the bowling alley! And finally, one week at DisneyWorld! Phew! Laundry I think is caught up, and school work is caught up! And now I get to do a Five Question Friday Post! 

1. What album/cd/download are you embarrassed to admit you have?

Well, last week, my husband asked me if I knew any Air Supply songs. So I started rattling them off. And when I say rattling them off, I mean singing them. And the reason he asked me is because I guess they are on tour, and he wanted to know what songs they sang, because the billboard of them showed these two rockers. I digress.
Anyway, so then I start thinking about their songs, and then well, I had to download their greatest hits album. And I might have listened to it every night this week. In fact, I might be listening to it as I type this.

I'm all out of love, I'm so lost without you........
2. What's the one thing your spouse does better than you?

Cook. He is much more creative when it comes to cooking. He is willing to try more things. I get in a serious rut and then make the same things over and over again. 

3. When do you start buying Halloween Candy?

October 30th. Hopefully there is something still good left. You would think I would learn one year.

Family closets - Yay or nay?

No way! I need everybody to have their own space! Luckily my husband and I both have our own closets as well!

5. Which home/cleaning chore do you hate the most? Why?
Scrubbing the toilets. Need I explain why?

Anyway have a great weekend! Cold front comes tonight!!
