It's Friday once again!

I wanted to start my post today with one of my newest favorite songs. It's called Pound (#) Sign by Kevin Fowler. It makes me laugh so hard!! I know there are times we all feel like this!! Even if you break out in hives when you listen to country music, it's worth at least one listen. Trust me, it's great! :)

Welcome all vistors! Thanks for stopping by!!

Five Question Friday

1. Did you have a favorite blanket or toy as a kid? If so, do you still have it?

Mordecai is not a toy or a blanket. He is my trusty teddy bear. I think I've had him since I was like 8. I had A LOT of stuffed animals growing up (and I still have a few in boxes somewhere), BUT Mordecai has always been more than a stuffed animal. Before you ask, yes, I still have Mordecai. When I'm down and need to have a good cry, Mordecai is great to hug and cry on. Yes, I'm 32 years old and have a stuffed animal. You got a problem with that?? :)
My trusty Mordecai

2. Do you dream in color?

I'm assuming I do, I never really notice if I don't. I know I've been having really weird dreams lately. I've had the dreams where you "wake up" in your dream, then when you really wake up, you have to convince yourself it was all a dream. I hate that (especially when it involves dreams where someone is in my apartment, so when I do wake up, I have to go check it out to be sure it's just me and Mordecai). Oh yes, I'm the girl in the horror movies who wanders around her apartment to see what the noise was. 

3. How tall are you? Do you wish you were shorter or taller?

I'm 5'8 with no shoes on. I get "you're really tall for a girl" a lot. I don't think that. I have female friends who are my height or taller. I am the tallest of the three sisters in my family though. I think they range from like 5'2 to 5'6 (sorry sisters if I'm off on your height). Whenever we take a picture together, they make me stand on a step below them so they look taller! :) 
 Me and my sisters, Mary and Martha, at Christmas. Even being a whole step lower, I'm still almost taller than Mary! :)

4. If you could have anyone's (celeb or other) voice as the guide on your GPS, who would it be?

Every 5QF post I've read so far has said James Earl Jones. And I would totally say him (but I don't want to look like I'm copying everyone else's answer). And also it would feel like Darth Vader was giving me directions. I would feel like I had given in to "the dark side" (oh yes, Rachel's nerdy Star Wars side has surfaced). I like Kiefer Sutherland's voice, so I think I'll say him (I know he does voice-overs in commercials). 

Kiefer rocks!

5. Do you return your shopping cart to the corral or leave it wherever in the parking lot?

I return it to the "corral". I HATE when people leave the shopping carts in other parking spaces or in the middle of the parking lot. I usually park close to the corral so I don't have to go far to return the cart.

Have a great weekend!!


  1. I'm going to be the shortest of all my sisters I'm sure of it! What's the age difference between you and your sisters? My youngest sister is 21 years younger than me. She's closer in age to my son than me lol

  2. My oldest sister is 20 years older than me. The other one is 15 years older than me. I have nieces and nephews close to my age. : )

  3. I don't think I realized that James Earl Jones did the voice for Darth Vader until today...although, it seems like I did know that! :) I just think he has a great voice...much better than any other GPS voice I've heard! :)

    I HATE country. I LOVE this song! LoL Too funny!

    And I LOVE the Kiefer answer! VERY nice!

  10. What a fun post! Mordecai is adorable. Our daughter still has her faithful teddy bear from when she was a kid and he has traveled to many different places with her! Give Mordecai a hug. He's one cute bear. :-)

  11. I'm the girl who investigates the strange noise in the apartment too. Guess I'd rather find them than have them find me (if that even makes sense)!

    Visiting you from New Friend Friday at TGC.
