Five Question Friday!! 7/20/12

Hey friends!! Just wanted to remind you that 5QF is being hosted by the talented Miss Kate today! Here is the link to her 5QF post with the kinky list:

And for the record, NO, I am not enjoying the bugs...KATE.

This vacation? It is awesome! I do NOT want it to end. I ended up getting my "abundant sunshine" mid afternoon yesterday...I have the lobster skin to prove it.

Oh, and we ran out of sunscreen...which means the kids are all somewhat on the "too pink" side, too.

Bad mom, I know!

Okay, let's do this 5QF thing! Thanks again, Kate, for hosting! (I'd link her, but I can't from this Blogger app. Fer dumb.)

1} What do you call them- flip flops, sandals, thongs, or slippers?

Definitely flip-flops...and sometimes, flippy floppies! "Thongs" weird me out.

Funny FIL, a very conservative, hard working, former farmer, teases my kids when they wear them...he asks them why they are wearing their "shower shoes"! So, last year for his birthday, guess what we got him?!

Flip flops! Had a good laugh about that!

2} Are you a "my kids can do no wrong" kind of mom or a "Johnny punched you? Well what did you do to him first?!" kind of mom?

Ohhhhhh, definitely the latter. I try very, very, VERY hard to NOT be the former. I feel that those parents are setting their kids up for great disappointment in life when they run into situations that are, indeed, their mistake.

You aren't benefitting your child at all by either bailing them out of every situation or by assuming that what you are hearing from their mouth is 100% truth.

Likely, it is not.

3} Would you confront a good friend that looked/looks down on your husband/significant other?

No. I don't like confrontation. At all.

I would hope that if my friend had a concern they would bring it up to me and we could talk about it civilly (sp?) but to just bring something up out of the blue?

Couldn't do it.

4} Biggest pet peeve?

Right now, I'm kinda the grammar police. Drives me bonkers when people don't use "your/you're" correctly. My husband is guilty of that!

I'm sure there is something else, but I can't think right now! (The lake water has made me sleepy...)

5} What's your favorite take out meal?

Well, we're limited in "take out" where we live.

So, I guess I'd say KFC. When I'm at work, we have a wide variety of thi ga to choose from...if we can sweet talk them I to delivering, so really, I guess I do have a bigger pool than I originally thought!

Pacific Wok is one of my absolute favorites! They have the BEST food that is somewhat healthy for you! Their brown rice is too. die. for!

And, now I want some Pacific Wok!

Have a great weekend! I'm off to enjoy some more lake time! Adios!(/span)


  1. Enjoy! And, too funny...I'm Mrs. Confrontation. I'll confront anyone about anything. Probably not always a good trait. :)

  2. My kids only use the term "flip-flops" as they know the word "thong" to relate only to underwear. Therefore, I love to call my summer footwear THONGS! I am such a mean Mom.

  3. First time linking! Hope to continue!

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!)

Halo Braid Tutorial!

How appropriate, "halo braid", no?! ;) Finally, I have this ready for you...I apologize for the delay!
This braid looks intricate, but is really quite easy and quick to pull off...the original video (prior to the warp speed the video to see what I mean) was just a bit over 8 minutes long...not too shabby!
So, here you go...right in time for you to try it out on your little girl for Easter!

Crock-Pot Fajitas

Yes, YOU!!
You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now.
Well...wait. You should probably finish reading this post you know how to make it...
But then...STOP! STOP everything, make this, and thank me later!
Oh, hold it...wait just a sec (again)...actually, I got this recipe from Melissa...yes, the Melissa of this story!
And this story...which, the same story, just told two different ways! ;)
So, you can thank her...I guess.
Well, in any event...prepare your tastebuds to be tantalized!
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. (Ahem...)
Just keepin' up with the times, friend.
So...slice up those peppers and onions into cute little strips...
And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips...
