Five Question Friday!! 3/30/12

So, so happy it's the weekend...gonna be a crazy busy one, but love having all my peeps under one roof!

Spring is springing 'round these parts...trees budding, grass greening, mama's still hanging on to winter wear just. in. case. Snow in April (even May!) isn't unheard of, so you JUST KNOW that if I packed away all that winter gear, we would get a blizzard. And then I'd have THAT on my head and MinnesOOOOOtans everywhere would hate me.

I'll deal with the winter gear for awhile if means I'm single handedly holding off the snow.

Welcome to Five Question Friday!! You've come to the right place if you want a fun, easy post or if you've suddenly discovered your muses are completely pooped out and unwilling to offer up anything inspiring.!

Rules for 5QF: Copy and paste the following questions to your blog post, answer them, then watch for the linky post to appear Friday morning and LINK UP! (Feel free to play along on Twitter, also!)

Oh, and remember (pay close attention...this is the important one)...HAVE FUN!

1. What giveaway would you like to do on your blog?

2. If you had to choose between natural artistic ability and natural athletic ability, which would it be?

3. Do you ditch the coat the minute it becomes "spring" or are you a holdout for more cool temps?

4. What would you do if you won the mega millions lotto of 1/2 billion dollars?

5. You are at a hotel by yourself...what do you do?


1. What giveaway would you like to do on your blog?

(FYI, this isn't quite what Pam's question was...I just tweaked it! Sorry Pam!)

Well, if I'm fun would it be to give away something huge. Like a house? Or an all expense paid vacation for an entire family? Or a car?

Or a computer?

Or an iPad?

Or...or any of the giveaways The Pioneer Woman does? Wow. Wouldn't that be fun?!!

Oh, how I would give stuff away if I could...

2. If you had to choose between natural artistic ability and natural athletic ability, which would it be?

Oh man. This is a hard one.

See..."athletic" = "in shape" and if I were a natural athlete, then I probably would enjoy, oh, say...running farther than from my cold car to my warm house. It means being able to hit a ball and actually MAKE IT to first base.

It means not flinching or ducking when the ball gets kicked at you in kickball...also, it means not being so certain you're going to catch said kicked ball that you plant yourself in one spot, only to watch the ball sail far, far, FAR over your head.

However, at some point in life it's likely that it would become far easier to sit at a table and draw...or, if music is considered artistry, then sit at a piano and watch art flow from your fingers.

Or sing. Singing must be some form of art, right? Oh how I'd love to sing.

Or dance.

Wait. Dance. That's kind of athletic, isn't it? Kinda artsy too. Prolly one of those things that artsy athletic people are good at.

*sigh* Some people just have it all...

3. Do you ditch the coat the minute it becomes "spring" or are you a holdout for more cool temps?

Oooooh, did you see my intro? That pretty much answers this question.

I hold out.

For one, I HATE being cold. Loathe it. Abhor it. DETEST it. So, if the weather warrants, I suppose I'll break out that parka again...IF I HAVE TO.

However, you can be certain that that parka won't have been put away put away because I'd hate to be the responsible party for an April Fool's snow storm like we had a few years ago.

I mean, imagine how that mom feels...after washing, drying, and packing away all of her winter gear only to have her diligence be the reason (because, OF COURSE it was) for a ginormous snowfall. NOPE. NOT GON' DO IT.

Let that be on someone else. (You're welcome,, I expect the same respect in return. No winter gear putting awayage until June. AT THE EARLIEST.) ;)

4. What would you do if you won the mega millions lotto of 1/2 billion dollars?

HALF A BILLION DOLLARS??????????? Gosh, when you put it that way it makes 500 million sound like peanuts. ;)

Well, see my answer to #1 above? Yup...all y'all would make out like banshees.

I would make sure to secure my children's financial futures...but make certain that they don't get their cashola until they are of a responsible age and after they have learned what it's like to earn a living and experience managing finances on their own. Somewhere between 25 and 30 years old?

I would pay off our relatives debts.

I would secure the Mr. and I's own financial futures.

I would donate to our church and our children's school...generously.

And I would help people out where ever and whenever I could. I would love to be that person who anonymously pays off someone's debt. Or pays their grocery bill. Or hands someone 100 bucks and a smile.

It makes my heart smile just thinking about it! "Extreme Random Acts of Kindness" new reality show if I win half a billion bucks.
5. You are at a hotel by yourself...what do you do?

Get my jammies on, turn on some white music, crawl under the covers and sleep. Sleep until my weary body tells me it's time to wake up.

Gosh. How boring is that?!

Okay, I'd jump on the beds after I woke up. Just so I wouldn't have to admit that all I did was sleep.


Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I'd love to be able to hand someone 100 dollars, especially at Christmas time - wouldn't that be awesome!

  2. I agree that I'd love to be one of those people who goes to K-Mart during the holidays and anonymously pays off layaways. "I feel like 5 today, I'd like to pay off 5 layaways over $100 with lots of kids toys in them." Yeah, that'd be cool!

  3. I'd definitely watch your show! And cry my eyes out the whole darn time, too! And if I win, I'll host a show like that in honor of you, k? :-)

  4. A good addition to #4 would be how many tickets have you bought or plan to buy?

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?!
