What a week! I'm so glad it's Friday! As soon as I get off work today, I'm heading to my folks for Mother's Day weekend! Looking forward to some family time!

So, it's been a while since I participated in Five Question Friday, so I thought it was time I linked up again!

1. Have you ever had a roommate?
Yes, when I was in college (and then two years right after college). When I first moved to Dallas, one of my former college roommates and I had an apartment together for about a year before I moved into the apartment I live in now. Right now my only roommate is Mordecai*.

2. How many names do you have (i.e. Prince Charming William Phillip Arthur Louis John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt)? 
I just have three. My first name, my middle name and my last  name. I did graduate high school with a girl who had 6 middle names (I'm not lying). I don't remember them all, but it took up two lines in our graduation program.

3. Did you watch the Royal Wedding?
No. Well, I saw about 10 seconds of it when I turned on WFAA to watch the morning news only to realize ABC had been hijacked by wedding coverage. No offense to William and Kate, I wish them all the joy and happiness in their marriage, but I just didn't see the appeal. Weddings just aren't a big deal to me. Maybe I'm not THAT girly. If my mother wouldn't kill me, I would totally elope whenever Joe Mauer and I get eventually married (like how I threw that in?) ;) He's tall, loves baseball and has cute ears (we've established my ears fetish in previous posts). And come on, how can you not love a guy who makes a milk commercial with his mom?? Too sweet!! <3

4. What is the messiest room in your house?
My bedroom, hands down. It's because I have so much crap junk stuff. Also, my bookcases won't fit in the living room, so both of them are in my bedroom. And seeing that I have more books than space, I have books stacked up around my room (and right now I have my scrapbooking stuff in the corner. I've been working on my World Series scrapbook from last year). I know what you are going to say. Get a (insert electronic book reader name here). I've tried reading on a Nook. There is just something about having an actual book in my hands when reading that makes it better. Maybe it's the feel and smell of a real book, I don't know. I know, I know, I'm weird.

5. What is your ideal Mother's Day?
Since I don't have kids, I can't answer this one. 

Head over to For the Love of Blogs and meet some new friends today!!

So, I realized this morning that 11 years ago today, I was attending my college graduation. Where does the time go?? I leave you with this "gem" of a picture!! Yes, yes, my hair was very blonde. Have a great weekend y'all!! XOXO!

Class of 2000! Look how young and carefree I was! What was I thinking?

*Mordecai is my teddy bear


  1. I have more books than I care to admit to! :) I try to avoid bookstores...and I *think* the local library is having their "Friends of the Library" does me no good to go anywhere near that place during a book sale! Although, I tend to gravitate towards the children's lit.

    Have fun with your family this weekend! :)

  2. no interest here either! lol! new follower! happy friday!

  4. Who on earth needs six middle names? Can the parents even keep them straight?

  5. I'm the same way about books. I tried a Kindle but didn't like it at all.

    ps-- hope you clean out enough space for me to fit in less than 2 weeks! ;)

  6. I can only imagine graduation with six names that would be long come see my answers at

  7. huh, I'd guessed you were much older with such a love of old films.

  8. You look gorgeous as a blonde too- love it! And I agree about the royal wedding- love that its a great story but it leaves me wondering how much of the millions could have been used in a better way!
