Five Question Friday – September 21

by Carrie with Children with 7 comments

Yay for Friday! We are taking a weekend trip to Disney World! This trip is extra exciting because we are staying at the new Art of Animation resort in a Little Mermaid room!  Can you hear my squealing with excitement?  (I’ll take lots of pictures and share with you next week.)  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.

What is one grammar issue you cannot let go without correcting?  Spelling errors drive me crazy.  This last week I’ve found some real doozies of errors in my posts and it drives me nuts!

What’s your favorite thing about fall?   I’m not even sure fall exists here in Florida.  It’s still in the high 80’s around here, so we certainly haven’t gotten out the cold weather clothes yet. We’ve still got another month or so before that happens.  Either way, my favorite thing about fall is football season!  I love football!

What’s your favorite dish to take to a potluck?  I usually take Paula Deen’s corn casserole.  It’s easy to make, travels well and it’s delicious!  Plus, it’s got tons of cheese on top – you can’t go wrong with cheese!

When do you start your holiday (Christmas) shopping?  I’ve actually picked up a few things for my Christmas list over the last month or two. They were deals that were too good to pass up.  Besides that, I usually start about mid-November.

Did you move homes a lot growing up?   I lived in the same house from the time I was born until I left for college.  When I moved for college, that was the first time I had ever lived anywhere else!

    Spelling is a grammar thing for me also. Since we both are in Florida, I don’t think we have fall either. If we had fall, I would love the cool crisp air like in the mountains and Halloween is my favorite holiday.
    My favorite thing to take is deviled eggs and I bring home an empty plate. They’re quick and easy to make.
    I try to pick up little things all year for Christmas but the big items in December.
    Yes I did move around a lot when I was a child. My father was in the Navy, which is how we ended in Florida. I was born in Wisconsin where my mother is originally from, my dad was stationed in Rhode Island but he was out to sea. Then we moved to Jacksonville Beach where my parents decided when they retire from military they would retire to Florida. Then we moved around state of Virginia, then Washington, DC, next Guam then Long Beach, California and finally Orange Park, Florida where my mom still lives.

      Wow, Pam! You’ve seen a lot of places – what a great experience! Deviled eggs are also my mom’s “go to” dish for pot lucks! 🙂

    Football! It is a way of life, in our family! I love everything about it, and love how people support their teams, it is crazy how die hard some fans really are! Thank you for sharing!

      Football is a way of life in our family too! We love it!

    Your potluck choice looks good. I agree cheese goes with everything.

    • Carrie with Children

      Cheese makes everything better! Thanks for reading, Judy!
