Five Question Friday – May 25

by Carrie with Children with 2 comments

It’s a long, holiday weekend…  and we have no major plans!  YAY!   We’ll probably grill out and play outside, but besides that, not too much going on here!   What are your plans for the weekend?

Let’s get to the sure and share your answers below!

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.

Are you a napper?   Back in my day, pre-kids, I loved napping!  I could break records for the longest nap, any place, any time!  Now, that the girls have come along, I’ve lost my ability to take naps.  Maybe I’ll put that on my “to do” list for the long weekend – take a nap!

What was your favorite subject in school?   Most hated?   My most hated was anything science and math related.  I was terrible at both and just not interested in them.  My favorite was probably English.  I love writing (and obviously, I still do!)

Did you have something old, new,  borrowed and blue at your wedding?  What were they?  My old and borrowed item was my mother’s pearls. She wore them when she got married and my sister wore them too.  My new item were the sneakers I wore at my wedding.  My wedding colors were black, white and turquoise – so there was a lot of blue going on!  I had a turquoise sash on my wedding dress!

What one thing are you determined to do this summer?   Potty train Maggie!   We’ve been on a terrible cycle of trying to potty train her and she’s just not interested.  I’m determined to get her interested and trained this summer.  It’s not going to be fun, but I’ve gotta do it!

Ice cream or popsicles?   Ice cream!  Always ice cream!  It’s my one true weakness.  I love, love, LOVE ice cream!

    No real plans for the weekend. Was never a napper as child hated it and still not a napper.
    Hated in school math,science and pe,hate to sweat I know horses sweat and women glow. Favorite would be history and english(reading).
    I had blue in my garter belt, I don’t think I had anything old or borrowed.
    Since I retired from corporate America back in February, I am determined to enjoy the summer before I go back to work. I did just finish school to become a nail tech which is what I want to do now, have a fun job!
    Both popsicles and ice cream!

    Are you a napper? I’ve never been a napper until the last few years. When I was little, my mom would lie down with me to take a nap. After she fell asleep, I’d get up and go play. Now, there is nothing better than sitting on the back porch, reading a book, and snoring thru the afternoon.
    What was your favorite subject in school? Most hated? Wow, talk about opposites. In school, my favorite class was math; anything math. Most hated…English/Literature. My mom and sister both loved to read; me…not so much. A few years after I graduated from college and I could really chose what I wanted to read, I became an avid reader. Carrie and Rob got me a Kindle for Christmas and I’ve read 55 books since December. My new addiction.
    Did you have something old, new, borrowed and blue at your wedding? What were they? When I married Rob’s father, my wedding dress and veil were borrowed and “old” at the same time. The dress was made by my Aunt Wilma (I’m named for her) for my cousin Trula’s wedding. I wore the dress and then her sister Cookie wore it for her wedding. I wore a new diamond cross necklace that Rob’s father gave me as a wedding present and my garter was blue.
    What one thing are you determined to do this summer? Spend time with Maggie and Molly. We have so much fun together. Grandchildren are the very best!
    Ice cream or popsicles? Ice cream! Always ice cream! It’s my one true weakness. I love, love, LOVE ice cream! There are 3 flavors in my freezer right now.
