Five Question Friday! 7/13/12

Happy, happy, happy birthday to my favorite middle brother!! Hope your day is as wonderful as you are, Treehorn!

Oooooh, Friday the 13th. This calls for a scary movie night. Actually, we're on a hunt for "Big"...our local Walmart doesn't have it, where the heck would I find it? Pal and I were discussing The Pioneer Woman's Tom Hank's Movie Matchup and were recounting all the great Tom Hanks movies...

Then we got a hankerin' (ha, get it? HANKerin'? You know, Tom HANKS?! Dang...I crack myself up sometimes.) to watch "Big". Or "Forest Gump". Or maybe "Cast Away". And I was telling him how awesome Mr. Hanks was in "Philedelphia"...and then there's "Sleepless in Seattle"...

Anyway, gotta work again today. And then? Then we're takin' off on a "lo-cation"! (That's my version of "local vacation"...not really a "staycation" but not really a "vacation"...just close enough that we're, well, not too far away but not staying at home! Clever, huh?)

Let's get this party started.

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 traumatized from their brush with death via ice cream cone.

(Remember to @5crookedhalos me and use hashtag #5QF if you go the Twitter route!)

1. What's your view on men wearing sandals (yay or nay)?

2. What song do you love but are embarrassed to admit?

3. What summer camp should they make for moms? 

4. What is the most romantic song? (Not necessarily your favorite or your wedding song...)

5. Do you have an embarrassing pregnancy story?


1. What's your view on men wearing sandals (yay or nay)?

Flip flops? Yay.

Sandals? Nay.

The image of "men in sandals" that I have in my head is one of old, gray librarians on vacation wearing white crew socks pulled up mid shin and thos two strap velcro sandals.

You know, the ones with the strap across the toe area and one around the ankle/heel?

Not so attractive. But, a rugged pair of flip flops (wait...does "rugged" go with "flip flop"? Help out here...)? Fo sho.

2. What song do you love but are embarrassed to admit?

Don't laugh, kay?

No, seriously. You can't laugh.


Okay then...I like...okay, don't laugh..."Call Me Maybe".

I KNOW!!! I'm ashamed to admit it. But, it's just so catchy, I can't help it.

Now, you forget I ever said that, okay?

3. What summer camp should they make for moms? 

I have the perfect camp...

Camp Iwannatakeanap

It would be great. Instead of crafts...naps. Instead of campfire songs...early bedtimes without having to put kids to sleep. Instead of dishes...more naps.


4. What is the most romantic song? (Not necessarily your favorite or your wedding song...)

Elvis, baby. "Can't Help Falling in Love".

His voice. The lyrics (at least those of them that I know). The music.

What a perfect slow dance song.

And now, which song do you have stuck in your head?
Sorry. Could be worse...could be "The Song that Never Ends".

Oops. Sorry again. Have with that, now.

5. Do you have an embarrassing pregnancy story? know, the only real embarrasing pregnancy story I have is going into the hospital with Baby Girl, thinking (wishful thinking) that I was in labor. Wishful because I had been taken off work the week before and it was killing me that I was sitting at home using up maternity leave whilst the real reason for my maternity leave was still snug as a bug inside of me.


Anyway, had some contractions. Went in. Petered out. Came home. With a baby in my belly still.

And why is this embarrassing? Well, my dear friends, remember...I am a labor nurse. I had already had 4 children at this point. I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER.



Have a fabulous weekend! 


  1. That is funny that you went in for a false alarm, it makes me feel better about not knowing when to go in!

  2. i think we have a lot in common, yucko on the man sandals.

  3. haha I have totally done the false alarm thing. so embarrassing. and expensive.

  4. im so glad i found you today and have linked up. great questions-so hard to choose just 1 answer. i could probably come up with many answers to the embarrassing pregnancy question. i think i have about 27 months worth. :)

  5. What a great choice of romantic song I love Elvis

  6. I love 'Call Me Maybe' so catchy, permanently stuck in my head. And 'Can't Help Falling In Love' is a beautiful song. Great choice! :D

  7. They do make sandals for men that don't look like old-man sandals, but NO sandals should ever be worn with socks!

  8. Awww..... "Can't Help Falling in Love" is our song!! We didn't have one until picking our first dance song for our wedding and that one just stuck. LOVE!

  9. I <3 Call Me Maybe and I'm so not embarrassed to admit it! :)

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

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.

And...try your best to not slice up the little fingers that are sneaking away pepper strips... (Lemme just inte
