5 Question Friday

 I faithfully read Mama M.'s Five Question Friday every week, but seldom find time to answer these questions myself!








1. If you could, would you go back to high school?
Sure, why not? I loved my high school experience. I had a lot of friends, an awesome best friend that I still keep in touch with, a great boyfriend, I was involved in everything I wanted to be involved in. If I did go back, though, I would have paid much more attention in Biology and Chemistry. That would have really helped me out in college!The great thing about living only 2.5 hours away from my home town is that I get to go back and visit all the time. So, I kinda feel like I go back to high school often!

2. If a genie appeared and granted you two wishes, what would they be? (And, no saying "more wishes".)






I would wish for a fully loaded 2010 Honda Oddessy Minivan. I'd definitely have to wish for one because I know my husband would never agree to just go and buy us one. He hates the gas mileage that is typical with vans. Don't even get him started on SUV's!


Okay, the other wish would be for a Canon EOS 1Ds Mark III. Its just a wish, right? I know that would be WAY too much camera for me and I probably wouldn't even know how to turn it on. But if you are gonna wish, wish for the best!


Sorry I'm not wishing for world peace or anything monumental. I'm a bit more materialistic than that.


3. What kids show do you secretly like?



I've always loved watching Arthur on PBS. I remember encouraging the kids I babysat for to watch it with me because I liked it so much. Now that I have kids, they could care less about Arthur. But I find myself watching a bit if I'm flipping through channels and see it on :) 


Oh, and I love Imagination Movers. I can't decide who I like more... Rich or Scott. I think they're both hot :) Luckily, that is one of Jayce's favorite shows, so I don't have to be creepy and watch it on my own :)

4. What is your beverage of choice?


Coke. Hands down. Is there anything else? And no, that is not a generic southern term for "all things soda". When I say "Coke", I mean real Coca-cola, never diet, in a red can or glass bottle. Actually, I prefer it from a fountain dispenser. But only if the restaurant has the balance right. I'm picky!

5. What is something that you would change about yourself (or are working to change in yourself)?


I'm assumming this is introspective and not  physical characteristics? 'Cause if we are talking about outside stuff, I'd really love a new nose. Not enough to actually get a nose job (cause that would hurt!), but I would love to change it magically. 


Okay, back to the "real" stuff. I've been working on yelling and the way I speak to my kids since January. Oh my goodness, this is tough! This is one hard habit to break! I'm doing much better on keeping my voice down,  but still have a long way to go on tone and content. Any time Jaina gives me a sassy comeback, its usually because *I* just used that rude tone with her. I've got to start talking to my kids the way I want them to speak to me. I need to get this down pat before Jaina hits her teen years!


Any way, I hope this was informative and fun for all of you!

  1. McDonalds Coke is the best. When I splurge and have a real Coca Cola. But I do Coke Zero because it tastes just as good as the real thing, but is better for diabetes.

  4. I SO hear you on the yelling. That is something that I'm working hard at, too.

    We love Imagination Movers here, too! Z told me that she loves..uh, I forgot the namme; I always get them mixed up! Anyway, she likes the one with the long hair and the goatee. :)
