Five Question Friday!! 2/22/13

Word on the street is that I'm gonna get to hold my sweet nephew this weekend! Haven't seen him in what seems like forEVER! Can't. Wait.

Bought new bedroom linens that I'm dying to get on the bed, but I'm all "well, maybe we should paint first and if we're gonna paint we might as well get new flooring and while I'm at it maybe I can spruce up our cheap old dressers with a little paint and Distress Ink and gosh, I can't do a ding dang thing until the bed skirt is on and the bed weighs 8 billion pounds so I can't do that by myself..." see what happens? I just can't toss on the comforter and call it good.


Anyway, let's get to the questions!

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 worn out from all the stupid sicknesses going around.

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

1. What is a hobby you would love to learn and why? 

2. What do you wish you could have delivered to your house but does not deliver?

3. What's your favorite snow day activity? Inside and out?

4. Would you meet a stranger from an Internet dating site?

5. If you had to spend 35 hours in a car with 4 other people, who would you choose?


1. What is a hobby you would love to learn and why? 
To sew. Because I'm constantly pestering my friend to sew this and fix that and can you whip together this and will you make that?

Also, I'd love to play the piano because I love seeing that talent and also, I haven't heard a piano player with a bad's like a two-fer-one talent.

2. What do you wish you could have delivered to your house but does not deliver?

Ooooh, good question! I suppose it depends on my mood...some days I'd die to have someone deliver me a Caribou Coffee...other days, I'd kill for Chipotle and then there are the "oh, crap...I'm out of butter" and would love for someone from the grocery store to run over, right then, with some butter for me.

I should really try to take advantage of grocery delivery...I hear it prevents you from buying unnecessary the Chocolate Chunk Vanilla yogurt I bought today.

3. What's your favorite snow day activity? Inside and out?

Well, I'm not really that outdoorsy, but I remember when I was a kid, my mom and I would bundle up and go for a walk in the dark while it was snowing like crazy and it was one of my very favorite things to do...I keep meaning to do it with my kids, but it never seems to work out. I need to seize the moment more and JUST DO IT, fer dang sake!! 

Now, we just need a good nighttime snowstorm!

Indoor activities? Games with a crackling fire in the background, or a good movie snuggled up under my covers with my hoodlums all around me.

I kinda love snow days.

4. Would you meet a stranger from an Internet dating site?

Eeek. No. See...I'm married? ;) I'm really glad that I'm not dating in this day and age...I know people who've met their significant other online and it works well for them but gosh, I dunno.

But then, there's some Twitter friends I have, some I've already met in real life through other life circumstances and others I only know from the hilarious and wonderful tweets we exchange and I would LOVE to get together with these ladies!

And is that really different? Not really I guess. I just hope they aren't killers. ;)

5. If you had to spend 35 hours in a car with 4 other people, who would you choose?

Oh, boy...that's a hard one. Can I say me, and The Father, Son and Holy Spirit? ;) I could totally spend 35 hours with my hubby, for sure, and we've done 14 hours in a car with all 7 of us.

Are we talking 35 hours straight? Oy...I'm pretty sure that whomever I choose I wouldn't want to see much after that 35 hours. Gosh, I'm so flustered by this question I can't even answer it straight!

I'll leave it at this: If I'm traveling anywhere and it takes 35 hours to get there, I'm assuming it's a pretty worthwhile place to visit, so I'd want my whole family with me. Yes, all 7 of us.

And I'm sure we'd hate each other by the end of it. ;)


  1. Can I change #5 to Me, Myself & I? :)

  2. After driving in the car with my guys too long, I need to run away, LOL

  3. Thank you so much for hosting girl! I love these questions ever week and reading about your awesome and hilarious life!

  4. I ran Ragnar with 5 other people from my neighborhood and that was 48 hours in a mini van sweaty stinky and all cozy it was hysterical to say the least. We still have some trouble looking each other in the eyes LOL

  5. I like your answer for the Father Son and Holy Spirit. I could easily listen to them for 35 hours and would hope I could ask questions.

  6. of course like your website but you have to test the spelling on several of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very troublesome to tell the truth then again I'll surely come again again.

  7. Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm
    looking to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

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! 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

You! Yes, YOU!! You must stop whatevertheheck it is that you are doing, and make this recipe. Right now. Tonight. 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... (Lemme just inte
