You don't have to thank me in writing.

It's FRIDAY again!!!!!!! Yay! With spring trying to poke through the last remnants of winter, and with the wedding coming oh-so-quickly, my weekends are pretty much booked through May I think, with a free one here and there. This weekend is a-typical in that Miss Chloe is home :) If you ask HER what this weekend means, she'll shout, "DA CIRCUS!!!!!" She got a little free ticket at school, so I guess we will be headed to the circus tomorrow. It's her first time and she is all full of energy and life. She asked me last night, "Do you think if I show them I can do a trick they might want me to come up and do the tightrope?" all excitedly. I told her I didn't think they let kids up there. He he.

Anyway. It's time for your regularly scheduled 5QF!

1. Do you know what your REAL hair color is?
Yes. I know because I am reminded every six weeks or so when my super-tall *almost* BIL scrunches up his nose and says something like, "Holy gray!"

=/  Being tall has its MOST people can't see your roots. But he can. And he says they're half brown, half gray.

2. Do you plan ahead for summer, or fly by the seat of your pants?
Oh we fly by the seat of our pants around here. That doesn't mean I'm good at it, or that I like it, but that's how we do. This summer we are planning our belated honeymoon, and I'm planning on getting a Big Surf pass, but other than that, the schedule is to-be-determined. I love summer. It's so fun when Chloe and I are home together all day every day and can just take off and go do whatever we want :) I'm looking forward to girls days with my mom, going to the park, going to the beach, going to Big Surf, MOWING, grilling, spending long summer evenings with the Mister, ahhhhhh I can't wait!

3. What is your favorite meal to cook?
Well. Probably pot-roast. Because I plop it in the crock pot first thing in the morning, and don't do another darned thing to it. I bake some bread in the afternoon, and when we are done eating, all I hafta do is wash that crock.  Love it.

But I like cooking anything I know makes my Mister happy, and I especially love cooking spaghetti...because I love to eat it!

4. Do you get offended by not receiving thank yous?
Nope. I might get offended if I sent someone a gift, or a card, or did something way out of my way and they didn't acknowledge it at all. I like to know they at least got it, but a verbal "aww thanks," or a text, or a facebook nod are all sufficient. If I give it to them in person, even at a wedding or birthday party, I certainly don't expect a written reply. Maybe because I'm the world's worst at doing it myself? Probably ;)

5. How did you meet your best friend?
Well, my BFF Lindsey and I met in kindergarten. I don't really remember "meeting" her. We've just always been friends. Good friends. The kind that can not talk or see each other all year, then pick right back up where we left off. We can tell each other pretty much anything and know we'll still love each other.

Then my BFF Jamie came into my life sometime around 1996 or thereabout. That's the first time I remember hanging around her, anyway. I'm pretty sure we first bonded through youth group activities and an Easter production at church. That's the earliest memory I have of spending time with her. She is five years older than me, but even when I was fifteen that never made a difference in our friendship. She's literally been there for me through EVERYTHING in my life since adolescence. She gets my family. She understands my relationships. She loves me no matter what idiotic thing I say or do, and she never EVER judges me. And I do the same for her. We're great like that :) As Chloe would say, "We love each udder."  :)


  1. I love the crock pot too! Have you ever tried the crock pot liners? I got some and it makes clean up EVEN EASIER!

  2. I just got a crock pot last month and I am in love with it!
