Five Question Friday

1. What is the most embarrassing thing your Mother-in-law has ever said to you? (Thanks Meghan, for the fun question!) Hmmmm...not so much something my MIL said to me, but more what my hubby said to her! It was the night after our wedding, we were at a hotel getting ready to fly out early the next morning on our honeymoon. Checking in briefly with our parents via phone before taking off, Mr. Wonderful was talking to his mom while I lay in bed gazing at my new groom's face. I had worn ballet flats the entire day of our wedding, and my legs were mighty sore from the standing, walking, dancing in such unsupportive shoes. Keeping in mind it is the night after our wedding night (and we all know what goes on on our wedding nights, right???) Mr. Wonderful's mom asks, "How's Mama M.?" ('cept, you know, she doesn't really call me Mama M...) and Mr. Wonderful says, "Well, she's a little sore."
Gosh...I just about died! 'Course, we knew what kind of sore he was talking about (my legs)...but the awkward pause she left him with told us what she was thinking!

2. What would you say is your favourite thing about YOU? (I just had to spell favorite with a "u"...I like to pretend I'm British or Australian, excuse me while I use the loo...hopefully there is not a que!) You mean, besides my killer taste in shoes? Hmmm...on a serious note, I would say my fave thing about myself is my compassion. My ability to connect with my family, my friends, my patients.

3. Speaking of "loos", toilet paper roll...under or over? Over!!! Definitely, no questions asked, over!!!

4. What is your most memorable childhood family vacation? Our trip to Disney. So parents were not financially stable, so that they sacrificed for us to go on that trip means even more to me now as a "financially responsible" adult!

5. If you could choose one super power, what would it be? Oh, gosh...just one? How 'bout the ability to morph your super powers??? Okay, okay...I would love to have a bonefide "bullsh**" detector...yeah *giggle* that'd be awesome!!

Have a fantastic weekend!


  1. Your number five was extremely unChristian. I was thinking of following until that comment. That's simply disgraceful. You're causing your readers to think on unholy things. Do you think the Lord is pleased with that?

  2. Are you kidding me!?! I think the Anonymous comment above needs to LIGHTEN UP! I'm a Christian--participate in Bible studies and love Jesus and the Word of God-- and thought it was funny--and really fairly innocent!! "UnChristian" is judging people on 2 sentence blog posts and trying to induce guilt for something that was innocent.
    "Let anyone without sin to cast the first stone." John 8:7

  3. hahahahaha!
    Your first one is hilarious!!!! tee-hee!

  4. You are so funny, I too would have died at the awkard pause the morning after....oh for your secret power that is an awesome choice, except it may cause me to become bitter if too much bs is detected by 10am. LOL

  5. Hey Bestie! (I'm pretty sure Anonymous #2 is you, yes?) Thanks for standing up for me! I love ya girl...have fun this weekend! :)

  6. OK, just got my in. Sorry I'm running late. Had a bad day at Dialysis with Matthew. :(

    Oh- and I would LOVE a BS detector! :)

  7. Awesome super power! I would have the Master Metabolism- able to eat whatever I wanted and still be healthy. :) I think the Pharasies had anonmyous suggestion boxes back in the day, just saying. Don't sweat it- you don't need followers like that. You have me! (Cause, you know, that makes all the difference!)

  8. My BS detector senses a flare up at anonymous comment #1. The Bible does acknowledge discernment(or, a BS detector) as a spiritual gift. Quite the super power, huh?

    The Blog Hop was fun! Couldn't get the MckLinky code to post on mine without errors, though. I am barely computer literate, and it was DEFINITELY above my skillset. (Although I have used it before with no problems.)

  9. Love this carnival!!! Shucks! I missed it...but will look for it next time!

    I'm with ya on the tp being "over"!

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?! It didn't take nearly as long as it looks and isn't nearly as intricate as it looks! Vlog tutorial coming soon...(for those of you waiting, I'm sorry it's taking me so long!)

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!

You'll need this: And, this: You'll also need chicken breasts or steak, but since photographing your "main ingredient" is, like, soooo passe, I've left it out.
