Five Question Friday – March 11

by Carrie with Children with 20 comments
Okay..I ask the same thing every week and no one hardly answers me.  So, let’s try this again..   What are your plans for the weekend?!

We are going to the arts market tomorrow (yay!).  Besides that, I’ve got a honey-do list for my husband (he just learned of it if he’s reading this post. Hi Honey!) and we’ll be starting the process of getting ready for our trip to the Disney Social Media Moms conference next week!

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!
Do you know what your REAL hair color is? Yep…it’s dark brown.  I haven’t really strayed much from my true color..I have blonde highlights, but nothing too drastic.

Do you plan ahead for summer, or fly by the seat of your pants? I have to have a plan and schedule for everything!  Yes…everything!  There is no such thing as ‘fly by the seat of your pants’ in my world.
What is your favorite meal to cook? I guess “anything in the crock pot” would be a lazy answer?  LOL.  Actually, I really love to make this pork chop recipe.  It’s a little time consuming, so I don’t make it that much anymore..but I should!  Would you believe the real name of the dish is “Awesome Baked Pork Chops”.  Ah, the life of   It’s not exactly the most healthy dish in the world, but I love it…and so does my husband!  I usually serve it with mashed potatoes, they are great for sopping up the extra sauce!   Let me know if you try the recipe – it’s pretty tasty!
Do you get offended by not receiving thank yous? Call me old fashioned, but yes I do.  I’m not really that picky about the type of thank you note, it can be via email…just as long as you acknowledge your thanks.  That’s all I’m after…is that too hard?!
How did you meet your best friend? I met my BFF Kitty (not her real name) in college.  She thought I was a mean girl…and I thought she was a mean girl.  LOL.  One day we realized that neither was true and were inseparable throughout college.

    Why THANK YOU for asking!!!! We are heading “down South” to my mom’s house for a visit. What are you guys doing???

    • Carrie with Children

      That sounds like a fun weekend! We are going to the arts/farmers market tomorrow and then just hanging out the rest of the weekend. Enjoy the time with your mom!

  • Melissa

    Oh, we are just headed down to Disney World!!! Can’t wait to see you!

    • Carrie with Children

      YAY! I’m so excited! Thursday can’t get here soon enough! 🙂

  • Lady Estrogen

    I think it’s just being polite! I LOVE giving people things, I just do – mainly because I enjoy seeing them surprised & happy – a THANK YOU is the easiest way to make me happy in return.

    • Carrie with Children

      That’s exactly how I feel too! I love doing things for others…it’s not too hard just to say thanks in return! 🙂

    Hi, Carrie…just when I thought it was safe to look at another recipe, you have to turn me on to a whole new food website! I joined so I could e-mail myself that pork chop recipe. Sounds like it’s totally worth the extra effort. As for plans this weekend…I’ll be working 12-hour shifts on Saturday and Sunday, so that will consume my weekend. I did rent a couple of old movies from the library which I will try to watch some time today. I’ve got your back on the whole thank you note affair, too. Even if it’s a brief phonecall, I appreciate that more than wondering if the recipient ever got what I sent him/her. Have a great weekend.

    • Carrie with Children

      Haha! You’ll have to let me know what you think about the pork chop recipe!

      Stinks you have to work all weekend 🙁

  • Andrea

    This weekend we’re doing the same as always — Saturday doing fun stuff outdoors all day (as long as it’s not raining) and then Sunday we’ve got church and the farmer’s market. Fun!

    Hope you have fun at the Disney SMM conference!

    • Carrie with Children

      Oh yes, I’m hoping to spend most of Saturday outside too! I don’t think it’s supposed to rain here!! (Fingers crossed!)

      Enjoy your weekend

  • Mary McLean

    No big plans, just the usual chores. I have lots of decorating ideas, but I rarely get around to doing them. Maybe this is THE weekend!!

    • Carrie with Children

      I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you. Maybe it will be YOUR weekend! 🙂

  • Colleen (Shibley Smiles)

    I don’t like to cook but i think crockpot would be the best way to go!

    • Carrie with Children

      The crockpot is always the way to go in my world! 🙂

  • The Mommy

    I am planning on working all weekend…with a little family QT squished in when I get home. Not real exciting stuff. We are probably going to work on a 2nd house that we have so we can get it up for sale. We had a sucky contractor and have to clean up his mess. Other then that we will are going to get ready for The Daddy to be out of town for work in a few weeks…somehow, this always takes a few weeks to prepare for….clothes, plane, shuttles, childcare, work schedules, etc…

    • Carrie with Children

      I totally understand the whole “preparing for Daddy to be out of town” thing. Same thing happens in our house too. Takes me about a week or so to prepare too!

  • Ashley @ Mama of All Trades

    I will be shopping for next week! I can’t believe I get to meet you soon!

    • Carrie with Children

      Oh yes! I hope to fit in some shopping time too! I’m SO excited for Thursday! 🙂

  • Mrs. Tuna

    For me….SPRING BREAK!!!!!!

    • Carrie with Children

      Spring Break …woohoo!! I hope you have a great time! Anything fun planned?!
