Five Question Friday – September 9

by Carrie with Children with 8 comments

After taking a break last week from Five Question Friday – I’m back!

This weekend marks the beginning of the NFL season – I’m excited for some fun tailgating!  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 ringtone do you have on your cell phone? I’m a plain Jane, I just have the normal sounding telephone ring.  Nothing fancy…and everyone gets the same ring – no specialized songs for different people.

What is your favorite memory from this summer? Probably our big family outing on the boat with friends/family.  We had such a fun day and I loved seeing my girls enjoy being out on the water.  Here’s a video of some of the fun!

Paper books or eBooks? Well considering I don’t own a Kindle, eReader, Nook or anything fun…I’m going to have to say paper books.  I actually just ordered one on Amazon tonight!

If you could have one home upgrade, what would it be and why? A completely new kitchen!  (Does that count as one upgrade or many upgrades?!)  We’ve been wanting a new kitchen since the day we moved in our house.  My hubby is such a great cook – he deserves a fancy kitchen!

When was your first serious boyfriend? That depends on what your definition of “serious” is.  When I was five, I was going to marry my then-boyfriend at the time and we were going to run away in live in England.  That’s pretty serious if you ask me!  🙂

    We are celebrating Leland’s 3rd Birthday at Conner’s Amaizing Acres out in Hilliard tomorrow. We’ll be having piggies n blankets, pretzels as haystacks and cupcakes and to drink root beer and grape soda with ice cream for black cows and purple cows.

    I do not have any special ringtones on my phone.
    The week I was on vacation from work and spent my time with Leland every day I get to spend with him is special. I wasn’t able to spend as much time with my own children when they were this age unfortunately due to work so I’m making up for lost time.
    I prefer paperback books so I can go back and read them when they have been completed the first time.
    My one upgrade-a whole new house.
    I was engaged to another man before I married my husband. I had bought a dress and all but called it off he was too controlling.

      It sounds like Leland is going to have a fantastic birthday party! I can’t wait to see pictures!

      Thanks for playing along with 5QF this week!

    Oh this is fun Carrie!
    Ringtone – I have an assortment of ring tones on my iPhones – my fav tho is for my girlfriends that all have the “robot” ring. It’s kind of hilarious as it’s like the adults in the Charlie Brown talking and that’s how I am when my girls gal – just immersed in chatter.

    Favorite Summer Memory – Anytime I get to spend at my “second” home – a tiny little island that’s the quintessential old Florida.

    Paperback – So that when you’re done reading – you can pass them on. I write my name and location in my book and then give it to anyone with the request they do the same and then pass it on. It’s cool to see how the books travel in the area but out of state and sometimes out of country 🙂 Can’t do that with the Kindle!

    A new house period – I just don’t like where I live – long story 🙁

    Matt – I am the woman I am today because of him and that relationship. He taught me first and foremost what it was like to love but to also…have a best friend.

    Thanks – this was fun!

      Hi Karen! Thanks for reading! That is such a great idea with paperbacks – I love it! What a great way to share your love of reading with others. Hope you have a great weekend!

    We are just hanging out this weekend and I can’t wait! That is so cute about your 5 year old BF. I think I had a BF like that, around that age, too! Have a great weekend!!!

    • Carrie with Children

      I hope you all have a great weekend too – quiet weekends are usually the best kinds 🙂

    I think I would like to have a new house as an upgrade, too.
    We’ve been trying to sell our house and move for over a year now, but just can’t do it because of the slow market right now.
    Sounds like you had a great summer, I loved taking the kids to the lake and my SIL had a boat on the Boston Harbor which they LOVED going on in the summer when we lived up north.
    I’d say getting married and moving to England is definitely a serious relationship. =)

      A new house would be a pretty fun upgrade – I think I’ll add that to my list too! 🙂

      The housing market is so tough these days! Not easy to sell lately. Will keep my fingers crossed for you!
