Five Question Friday – October 14

by Carrie with Children with 8 comments

Lots of fun things going on this weekend around our house.  I’m going to a fun dinner this evening and Saturday I’m hosting a party at my house! (More on that later!)

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!

Do you prefer your ice cream in a bowl or in a cone? Um…is this a trick question?  Ice cream is good no matter how it is served.  However, I prefer a bowl so I can add lots of toppings – sprinkles, chocolate, caramel, cherry…all that delicious stuff!

What three things do you love the smell of? Call me crazy, but I really love the smell of coffee, but I don’t like the taste of it.  I love the smell of my sweet babies (when they have clean bottoms) and baby powder.

Giftcards or no?  (In regards to gift giving.) I think it probably depends on the person.  Personally, I love getting gift cards.  ps. My birthday is next month.  😉

What sports did you play in high school, if any?  And do you still play them? I was on the dance team for one year in high school. Does that count as a sport?  And if I didn’t have the knees of an 80 year old woman, I’d probably still be dancing!

Were you in band in high school?  What instrument did you play? I wasn’t in band in high school, but I did play the flute during middle school for a few years.

    We are going to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party this weekend, cannot wait!

    I’ll take ice cream ANY way (on a stick, in a shake, cup, cone, bowl…you name it)! LOL!

    Smells: Coffee, bread baking in an oven and pine trees in the forest!

    Sports: Basketball and softball. Occasionally (when it is not 100 degrees and humid), we take our little guy to the fields and courts!

    Not in band, but was in choir.

    I LOVE giving gift cards, especially for those “hard to buy for” people on my list! 🙂

      Oh I can’t wait to hear all about the Not So Scary Halloween Party! One year we are going to make a special trip to MK just so we can go!

      Hope you all had a fantastic weekend – perfect weather in Jax!

    Oh, I also like ice cream any way it’s served! Especially ice cream cake! YUM!!

    I actually avoid the coffee aisle in the grocery store, it makes me sick! I love the smell of fall!

    Only sport I played in high school was golf, lol!

    I played clarinet in grade school!

    Have a great weekend!!

      Oh – ice cream cake is SO good! I especially like the little crunchy cookie filling in between layers 🙂

      I can’t believe you played golf in high school – I’m jealous! I’ve always wanted to learn how to play golf.

      Hope you all are having a great weekend!

    • Carrie with Children

      Hi Lauren – Thanks for reading! I love getting gift cards – so fun picking out presents for myself with someone elses money! hehehe 🙂

  • Jackie

    Carrie, that response to the ice cream question makes me realize we could be life long friends. Yes, simply based on our mutual affection for ice cream and our disdain for drinking coffee but liking the smell!

    • Carrie with Children

      LOL. I love it, Jackie! We were totally meant to be BFFs.
