Five Question Friday! 1/28/11

Okay, before I say anything...I need to say something:

Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad!!!

There. I said it, now I can say anything.


Ha! I'm such a jokester. Or, just really, really tired and punchy (once again!), which means you'll just hafta bear with me through this!

Welcome to Five Question Friday! The easiest blog hop this side of the Mississippi! Unless you're on that which case it'd be "the easiest blog hop on the other side of the Mississippi!!".

Ugh. Oh dear. Being tired makes me weird. So, before I get any weirder on you...let's get down to business!!

Rules for 5QF: Copy and paste the following questions to your blog post, answer them, then watch for the linky post to appear on Friday morning! And the biggest rule of all...the most important rule...the one you must follow to a "T": HAVE FUN!!

Questions for Friday, January 28th: (Special thanks to @bellismom, Jill, Nini, Colleen, and [inspiration from] Sandy for their question suggestions! I'd love to link you in a future 5QF, so if you have a question suggestion, head on over to my community to offer it up, or shout it out on Twitter [@5crookedhalos]!!)

1. If you had $1,000 to donate to a charity, which would you choose?

2. Snow days: Do you welcome them happily or are they a pain in your butt?

3. What talent did you wish you had and why?

4. Are you a news, politics or celebrity gossip junkie?

5. What is your favorite "cocktail"? (Are you a beer person, a kiddie cocktail junkie, or perhaps your more the "Cosmo" kind?! Anything flies...doesn't hafta be alcoholic!)


1. If you had $1,000 to donate to a charity, which would you choose?

Wow. This is a hard question.

Hard, because, I really don't know a ton about many charities! I'd like to say Red Cross or Doctor's Without Borders...but how much of those donations go toward administration with big charities like that?

I dunno.

I guess, I'd really do my research...find a smaller, non-profit, fabulous cause, most likely involving children and donate to that.

2. Snow days: Do you welcome them happily or are they a pain in your butt?

Let me just say one thing:

I LOVE SNOW DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, lemme tell you another thing:


Yes. It's true. I practically live in the North Pole, and we haven't had a snow day in two years. Now, I realize that this winter is FAR from the possibility remains, but our school district is notorious for NOT canceling school, so I ain't gonna hold my breath.

The last snow day we had, was a freak snow storm in April (yes, APRIL) of '09. My kids were out in the snow in sweatshirts and jean jackets!

I wanna 'nother snow day. *pouts*

Dear East Coast: Feel free to send some of you snow back this way. I'd gladly take it off your hands for you. You're welcome.

3. What talent did you wish you had and why?

I wish I could wiggle my ears.

Okay, I don't. Not really.

Honestly? What I really just to have any talent whatsoever! Sewing, quilting, (not make me want to jump off a bridge...), singing, playing the piano, stamping, scrapbooking...anything. I'd take it.

Anyone have any extra talents they wanna give up?

Dear Talented People: I'd gladly take your extra talent off your hands for you. If you live on the East Coast, you can send the snow too. You're welcome.

4. Are you a news, politics or celebrity gossip junkie?

Oh, fer sure politics. (DAD!! Stop laughing.)

And that's the most bold faced lie I've ever told.

I am NOT a political person. Sure, I have my beliefs, but I don't keep up as much as I should and I couldn't hold a debate with you to save my soul. So, please don't make me save my soul.

The outcome wouldn't be pretty.

I, my friends, am a celebrity news junkie!! I don't know what it is, but those wacked out famous people just suck me in! I just saw a link on Twitter about Ashton Kutcher and Scout Willis singing a song they's ADORABLE! Look:

See...I love stuff like that!

5. What is your favorite "cocktail"? (Are you a beer person, a kiddie cocktail junkie, or perhaps your more the "Cosmo" kind?! Anything flies...doesn't hafta be alcoholic!)

Let it be known that I am NOT a beer girl.

The poster OR the drinking variety.

My favorite non-alcoholic drink would probably be Coke. Or, sometimes, an ice cold water. Ahhhhhhhh...

My favorite "libation" totally depends on the season. In the summer, I LOVE Jeremiah Weed with Lemonade...winter is more of a hot chocolate/Kahlua/Bailey's/alcohol infused whipped cream kind of a season.

Whatever it is, tho...I'm not a "good drinker". Two or three...and I'm good! Stick a fork in me, I'm done!


And, stick a fork in me...I'm done in! I'm tuckered, with that, have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I wish I could send you some snow...I won't be able to get my Christmas decorations down until may at this rate! Unfortunately I'm used to these winters by now. UGH.

  2. Thanks for using my question! We've had 5 snow days this year!

    LOVE that video too.

    I'll be linking up a little later. Chao!

  3. I love snow days as well! We haven't had any either and I'm in Colorado. What is up with that?!?
    Get some rest and have a wonderful day!

  4. I'm right there with you on the whole politics thing, Mama M. My dad tunes in to CNN like 23 hours a day, and I don't know how he stands it! Nobody needs that much "politics." It's supposed to be in the 70's tomorrow with a chance of some rain on snow days in our foreseeable future! But, like you said, winter if far from over. Have a great weekend.

  5. WE WANT YOU TO VLOG AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE!

  6. I loved the song you put on here for us. My Granddaughter and I have listened to it 6 times and am trying to memorize it so we can sing it with them. I told her we might have to share that song with our readers too. Its so cute. They are a really awesome family.
    Have a great weekend. Kath'

  7. Happy Anniversary to your parents!!!

    I'm also a celeb junkie! Hadn't heard that song yet though, love it!!

    Thanks for hosting!

  8. I am sending some East Coast snow your way!! I've had enough of it!! ;)

Coming soon...

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!

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... (Lemme just inte
