Five Question Friday – April 22

by Carrie with Children with 7 comments
Happy Earth Day to you!  We’ve got a busy weekend ahead of us!  A birthday party for Maggie’s boyfriend at the minor league baseball game tomorrow night and family festivities for Easter on Sunday!  Sometime in between all that fun, I’ve got a long to-do list that needs attention and “someone” has a “honey-do” list to tackle!
What are you up to this 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 above to see a linky list of others also participating. Be sure and share your answers below too!

What is your favorite Easter tradition? We spend Easter close to home.  Our girls are so young, we really haven’t started our own traditions for Easter.  This year, we are going to my brother-in-law’s house and dying Easter eggs, having a big family dinner and then a huge Easter egg hunt with all the cousins.  It should be a fun day (fingers crossed for no toddler meltdowns)!

Are you a “shower” or a “long, hot bath”  kinda person? I have a toddler and a nine-month old…..There is no such luxury of a long, hot bath.  Showers are the “norm” around here…but I do enjoy a nice bubble bath from time to time.

Can you parallel park?  And if so, when is the last time you did it? I *can* parallel park…but I don’t *like* to do it.  I’m terrible at it.  I will constantly circle the block, if it saves me from having to parallel park.  Sometimes when I go Downtown to visit my old co-workers, I have to parallel into a spot.  I know people on the street are probably laughing at me because I’m so bad – oh well!  🙂

What is your favorite Easter candy? It’s a toss up between Reese’s peanut butter/chocolate Easter eggs….and marshallow Peeps!  I have a major weakness for anything chocolate/peanut butter and Peeps are just too good to pass up!  I especially like the bunny Peeps.  There is a proper way to eat them, ya know?  Ears first when it comes to Bunny Peeps.

Easter: Do you go all out with the Easter Bunny or focus on the religious part of the holiday? I know I’ll catch some heck for this ..but neither. (Sorry mom!) Like I mentioned earlier, we haven’t started our own family traditions yet for Easter.  Maybe this is the beginning of something new for us this year!

    Have a wonderful Easter weekend! We actually thought about having our yard sale this weekend, but decided to push it out a few weeks since many people are probably involved with Easter festivities. I am RIGHT there w/ you on Reese PB eggs, those things are insane! I am NOT bringing any candy into my home whatsoever. I know, seems mean but I just don’t want to be tempted. My son’s basket will have some organic goodies, but I assure you it will contain nothing that I like. 🙂

    This morning I will go to church at 11:30am for Stations of the Cross. Then I will go to Leland’s Easter party at his daycare. I made cookies for the party. We will dye a couple of eggs for him and then make deviled eggs out of them. We will go to my mom’s for Easter and have an Easter Egg Hunt.
    I prefer long hot baths even though its so drying to my skin.
    Had to parallel park just to get a driver’s license but now that I drive a bus(Chevy Suburban) I don’t even attempt to do it.
    My favorite Easter candy is the Robin Eggs with the marshmallows on the inside and candy coating on outside I couldn’t even find them this year but second is jellybeans.
    We try to do both focus on religious and also the Easter Bunny fun.

    Love this feature 🙂

    I am with you own young babies. neither of mine are old enough to understand anything about the holiday yet. Can’t wait to play Easter Bunny for them though! Happy/Hoppy Easter, and hopefully you have a chance to catch your breath with all that you have planed this weekend!

  • Tara@ Thats a Wrap

    Again I love this cause I feel like I get to know everyone! I hope your Easter dinner and egg hunt go off without a hitch! Have a wonderful Easter and you know throwing caution to the wind each Easter can be your tradition!

  • Amy

    I think if you are looking for a HUGE egg hunt, you should come to WPC tomorrow morning. 10,000 eggs is a pretty huge egg hunt!

  • Meg

    Great answers!
    Happy Easter! (with or without the Easter Bunny! 🙂 )
