Five Question Friday

 I LOVE those emails with the questions about yourself like, "what are you wearing right now?" or "what do you eat for breakfast?"  I find the whole thing fascinating.  Knowing little tidbits about your friends is just interesting and let's face it, sometimes downright hysterical.  So...after thoroughly enjoying other peoples 5 question Friday answers, I am going to indulge and join in.  It's fun;)

1. Do you have a go to song that always puts you in a good mood?

Many, actually, but perhaps my most favorite is Francesca Battistelli's "Free to Be Me" and Miley Cyrus' "Party in the USA"...yes, I bust a MEAN move to these when I am alone in my kitchen;)

2. Are you a real Christmas tree kinda person or do you go with a real fake one?
I am obsessed with a clean house....fake.  We tired a real one once.  I love the idea of it and would love to go chop one down with my kids and tie it on top of our station wagon....but I know my mental limits.  When we had one, I forgot to water it regularily and it was a mess.  Never again...

3. What are you thankful for?
So many things.  Today, I am especially thankful for a reminder that my children are a blessing.  My friend Nikki spoke at our mom's group today and it was a shot in the arm in a good way.  She reminded us of how precious these days are and to "seize the day".  I was so thankful for her and for other women whose kids are a little older than mine that remind me how quickly the days pass and give me the gift of being reminded to savor these memories AS they are happening.  I am so blessed with friends.

I am thankful for a husband who loves me like crazy.  I find him to be amazingly handsome and he still can make my tummy tingle.  He is my best friend and I feel completely safe and confident when he's near.  He is amazing.

I am thankful for my family.  I had an amazing childhood.  My parents loved us and taught us to love Jesus.  They reflected God in their actions and that spoke more than their words (which, of course, also pointed us to God).  I know I am one of the few who had a healthy childhood and I am so so grateful for it.  AND I have amazing closest friends.
My children- wow are they cool.  Sure, they have driven me crazy on more than one occasion, but they fill my life with laughter, love, and constantly remind me to stop and savor the little wonders in this world....and they are so darn cute!

God...sound pat?   Maybe, but seriously, I am so thankful for salvation and more than that for a God who so gently loves and leads me.  I am thankful that he doesn't let me stay stuck in unhealthy habits and sin, but constantly leads me and grows me to be more like him.  God is amazing, awesome, incredible...

4. Which fashion fad from the past do you wish you could wear today?

Hmmm....perhaps I should have checked to see if I had an answer to all five questions before linking up to this thing;)  Um..I don't have an answer.  I DO wish I lived when it was cool to be chubby...I'd be down with the return of that trend.

5. Do you wait until the "low fuel" light comes on before you fill up the gas tank?

Yes, and this summer I actually ran out of gas.  Our old car made a little ding when your fuel was low.  I hate getting gas, so I'd wait for the ding.  Our new car lacks the ding and forces me to rely on the tiniest yellow light.  Recently, I didn't notice the light and ran plumb out of gas.  It had never happened to me before and I was mortified because a friend was with me;)  Thank God Marc was close by and could rescue us.  My children still constantly ask "Mommy is there gas in the car?"  I think they are scarred for life.

There?  Now wasn't that fun.  Don't you want to do it too?

  1. I know someone who ran out of gas in her own driveway on her way out of the house to take her kid to school. He just shook his head in disbelief. :) Welcome to 5QF... it's super fun!
