Five Question Friday – Better Late Than Never!

by Carrie with Children with 18 comments
Wow!  I “unplugged” from the online world yesterday and it was a great break… however today I’m frantically playing catchup on everything!  I’m happy it’s Friday though…Five Question Friday is always fun!   What do you have planned for the weekend?!
Just a reminder, I’m linking up with others for Five Question Friday and I don’t make up the questions. Click on the button below to see a linky list of others also participating. Be sure and share your answers below too!

Would you rather be on ABC’s Extreme Home MakeOver or TLC’s What not to Wear? I’ve been begging people to nominate me for What Not to Wear for years.  I’m an excellent candidate…just ask my former co-workers!  I’d be happy for Clinton and Stacey to trash my closet and let me start from scratch.  It’s no secret that I have no sense of fashion. At. All.

Do you have any tattoos? Nope!  I considered getting one in college while on Spring Break (who didn’t?!) I wanted to get daisies tattoo’ed around my ankle but chickened out. The thought of it being permanent along with the needle was enough for me to reconsider.    Do you have a tattoo?

Do you tell your kids about things you did growing up? I do…but sadly, my girls don’t have any idea what I’m talking about yet! One day I’ll fill them in on all the crazy things that mommy used to do growing up!

If the traffic signal turns yellow, do you stop or speed up? It all depends on how close/far the car behind me is from my bumper!

What’s your preference: chocolate or chips? Is both an acceptable answer?  If I have to choose…it’s gonna be chocolate!  I’m a chocolate/peanut butter fanatic!

    Hi! I’m a new follower from 5QF – one of my fave memes! As you say, it’s always fun! 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

    1. TLC’s What not to Wear! I used to be a fashionista but since my little one came along, I find myself living in jeans, converse and t-shirts. I buy the cutest, designer clothes for him and I wear rags. LOL! Clinton and Stacey would have a blast with me!

    No tattoos. I am terrified of needles. I almost fainted when my husband was getting his!

    Do you tell your kids about things you did growing up? Funny question, just today I told my toddler “Pap Pap would have busted my butt if I acted the way you are right now”. LOL! I’m sure I’ll tell him about things I did growing up, the censored version of course. 🙂

    If the traffic signal turns yellow, do you stop or speed up? I usually slow down unless of course my kid is screaming in the background or I have to use the restroom really bad.

    What’s your preference: chocolate or chips? Anything dark chocolate is my preference! 🙂

      I’m the same with my girls when it comes to clothes! I get them all the cutest stuff…and then I stick to jeans and sneakers! Haha!

        I think it’s a mom thing. I always said I’ll be such a stylish mom (before I had a child). I mean I’m still stylish in a comfortable kind of way. 🙂

  • Amy @ mommetime

    following you on twitter from the 5qf hop (already ‘liking’ on fb & following on gfc)…I’m linked up & answered @ …I hope you will stop by my blog for a visit. And, if I had to pick it would be chocolate (I really, really dig the twix bar)!

    • Carrie with Children

      Hi Amy – Thanks for stopping by! Running over to visit your site now!

      • Amy @ mommetime

        thanks…Have a great weekend!

    Chocolate is good, but i am a chip addict! I NEVER buy them, cause I could seriously eat the entire bag in a day.

    • Carrie with Children

      I just discovered some new honey bbq potato chips and almost ate the whole bag in one sitting! :0

  • Jodi

    Hey Carrie ~

    I just wanted to say congratulations on winning the Red Envelope gift card!!! I am soooo jealous. 🙂

    Have a great weekend.

      Thanks, Jodi! I’m so excited – it’s a tough decision trying to figure out what to buy! I love their stuff!

      Thanks for stopping by, enjoy your weekend!

    Neither- i would rather all realty tv disapear

    Yes- three but most dont know till they see me in a bathing suit. One very large flower on my side, a small S on my lower ab/underwear line and the gemini sybol for my twin boys on my back. Soon to be four as soon as I am done breastfeeding and get a celtic sybol for my daughter, but its going to cover up the meaingless S i have, so they may still count as three.

    Same page as you Carrie, my kids are too young right now to get anything I say about the past.

    usually slow down

    I always have a sweet tooth, but it almost always needs to be followed up with something salty.

    • Carrie with Children

      You would love a local chocolate store here in Jacksonville. They make chocolate covered popcorn – it is SO delicious! You could take care of your salty/sweet tooth!

  • Melissa

    I always watch What Not To Wear and think I need to be nominated. Can we nominate each other?

    I really want a tattoo…I have 2 ideas. One is 2 big stars (Heath and I) and a little star (Hayden) or the initals HLM somewhere which is both Heath and Hayden’s initials. But I’m too chicken!

  • Desi

    You are braver then me. I would hate to be on What Not To Wear.
    New follower, btw. Looking forward to reading more. 🙂

    • Carrie with Children

      Why would you hate it?! I think it would be so fun! Thanks for following along! 🙂

        I’m just stubborn. I can’t let someone tell me what I like is no good. I like my wardrobe as is. And I’d probably cry like a sissy girl if they insulted me. LOL.
