Five Question Friday! 3/26/10

I'm not really quite sure what is up with my baby's chewing...I think she was fascinated with herself!

Yikes!! Once again...sorry for the late posting, we're sleepy heads around here!!

My Little Life

It's a busy weekend for us...our Miss E. has her First Communion on Sunday, so we're trying to get ready for that (fingers tightly crossed for gorgeous weather on Sunday...)!

Did you know that a lot of 5QF'ers are vlogging today???? It was declared "Vlog Friday", so it should be an incredibly fun 5QF hop!

I not vlogging...not 'cuz I'm a party pooper...but 'cuz this post wouldn't have gotten up until, like 4pm, what with needing to be "presentable" for the camera and having a coupla little interrupters around...but, maybe next time? ;)

Okay, let's get down to bidness!!
Questions for Friday, March 26th: (Thanks to Kyrsten,Renee, Pam, Lily, and Thorney London for their question suggestions! Wanna be linked in a future 5QF? Just c'monover here, to my community, and offer up your best questions!)

1. Did you pass your driver's test on the first try?

2. What is your most embarrassing moment?

3. What TV show would you like to be on- Oprah, Biggest Loser, or What Not to Wear?

4. Would you ever get plastic surgery and what kind?

5. What are your favorite jeans to wear?


1. Did you pass your driver's test on the first try?

Actually...I did!!

And, I almost scored a perfect score! (I know, I know..."almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades"...)

On the very last turn, I lost 10 points...TEN STINKIN' POINTS ON ONE LOUSY TURN!!!!!

Fer dumb.

2. What is your most embarrassing moment?

Um...didja see this?

Yeah, I think that may be it.

I was mortified...and does anyone know why webcams make you look different? My eyes look so big in that video...and I've always been self-conscious of my "small eyes"?!!

I don't get it.

(But, shhhhh...don't tell anyone...I actually kinda had a lot of fun doing it!!!)

3. What TV show would you like to be on- Oprah, Biggest Loser, or What Not to Wear?

Oh my word.

Somebody, please follow me around with a "hidden camera"...I'll wear my grubbiest, nastiest, unflatteringyest (how's that for a word???) clothes for as long as it takes to earn my way onto What Not to Wear!!!

Time in NYC with a 5 grand to spend?

Sign me up, baby!!!

4. Would you ever get plastic surgery and what kind?



I know, I know...I should be happy with the body God gave me...but...well...I've already done it!

Yup...three years ago, for my 30th birthday, I treated myself to a new pair of girls.




And, you'd never know. I didn't go all crazy and Pam Andersonish (ask people who've met me IRL, right Laura???)...I just got them "reinflated".

After nursing 4 babes for extended periods of time...I was left with nuthin'.

Literally, nuthin'.

So, I had them blown back up to an appropriate size...and, they turned out so nicely, that 3 weeks later I was pregnant with baby #5!


5. What are your favorite jeans to wear?

I have recently discovered Silver jeans! I. LOVE. Them.

Like, if I wasn't already married...I'd marry them!

They fit a woman's body like she's a gaping at the waist!

Just all huggy curves.

Sigh...yup, I'm in love!

-------------------------------------- it's time to check out all those vlogs and blogs!

Oh, and have you seen the awesome Buggy Car giveaway I'm having? Incrediby cute!

Our Colorado Trip

One week ago today, I had skied myself down a mountain (several times) and survived.

Oh, you guys...Colorado has captured my heart. I loved our vacation like you wouldn't believe and while I am not (nor will I ever be) a world class skier (let's be honest, greens are where you'll find me...and I won't be whizzing down them, either!), the mountains and the skiing and the fresh air and the walking everywhere? I grabbed a hold of me and doesn't seem to be making any moves to let go!

Check out this view from our hotel room!!

I just told someone today, "If I had had my kids with me, I'm not sure I would've come back." I felt so healthy and vibrant and alive...ugh, I wanna go back!

Funny story, the first evening we were in Beaver Creek, we walked down to the village and I got my first real look at the ski runs...I thought, "Huh. They don't look so bad." and we went about our business and had supper and went ice skating and tucked ourselves in…

Sludge.'s like a thick sludge, hard to wade through, difficult to know which way is up, feeling like you'll never get out of it.
Today was a rough day. I'm not sure if it was just setting in, or that grief coupled with today being Baby Girl's and my birthday, was just a bad combination, but whatever it was, I found it hard to keep the tears at bay.
Just when I thought I'd have it pulled together, I'd hear or read the words, "I'm sorry", or field a phone call, or think about the amazing outpouring of love and support...and the tears would flow. Fast and furious.
I've discovered that my rock, my strength, comes from being around family; specifically, my husband. When I'm alone, the thoughts and memories coming flooding in and the tears come pouring out. My brother-in-law, Verd, was an amazing man. Actually, "amazing" doesn't even do him justice, I wish I could find a word great enough to describe the kind of man he was.

My heart…

What I've learned.

Tomorrow marks the return to a "new reality" for our family.
After a couple of good days, I know everyone is apprehensive about what tomorrow will bring. I guess we'll just have to see.
This past week has taught me a lot...not the least of which was how many lives my brother-in-law had touched. Over 2,500 people waited in line, each for about 2 hours, to pay their respects to him at his wake. I was blown away...we were ALL blown away. At his funeral, the church held more people than it had ever held before...Christmas mass and Easter Sunday included.
Our priest was even amazed.
I also learned, probably most importantly, just what an amazing family I married into. Just how wonderful they all are, how strong they all are, how faithful they all are. As I spent this week "disconnected", I realized I was more connected than I had ever my family.
I learned that the things that matter most in life are those that can't have a value placed on them. It's no…
