July 16th's 5 Question Friday

So, I'm sitting here waiting for my thirty-one party to start. Have a bit of down time before everyone arrives. Have you seen the thirty-one products? They are ah-maz-ing! Check them out Thirty-One. So, what better would I do with my time than a little Five Question Friday from Mama M, I mean, I could be cleaning the rest of my house but I'd much rather sit and relax for a few minutes. So, here goes. There were some tough questions this week.

1. Do you collect anything? Do dust bunnies count? LOL, Ok, why is my font freakishly large? I can't figure out how to get it the same size as the font up above..weird! Back to the question. I suppose I could say that I collect Department 56 North Pole Houses. I have the entire collection *ahem* I mean that my parents have my entire collection at their house. I also have a small collection of Willow Tree Figurines although they haven't been unpacked yet so they're in a box somewhere in the basement.

2. Name 3 celebrities that you find good looking.
I would have to say...
Bradley Cooper
Wentworth Miller
Tom Cruise (from his Top Gun Days)

3. Do you have any scars? If so, what's the story behind it (them?)? 
Where to start? We'll start at the oldest and work our way to the newest.
I have a scar on each of my knees where I had surgery. When I was growing up I danced A LOT, my inner thigh muscles were stronger than my outer thigh muscles causing my knee caps to be pulled crooked, it was PAINFUL!! So, I had my right knee operated on over April vacation in 8th grade. I had my left knee done the summer after 8th grade. It was the same surgery for both, they had to trim the muscle.
I guess my next scar is from my c-section. That was from Princess. I was ready to start pushing, the doctor did one last check and discovered that she was breach. In I went for an emergency c-section.
My next 4 scars are from 7 weeks after that when I had my gallbladder removed. Turns out I got the ever-so-wonderful pregnancy induced gallstones and one was actually blocking the duct. So, in I went for emergency surgery to have my gallblader removed.
I think that's all of them.

4. What is a food that you like to eat, but others might think it's gross or weird?
Hmmm, I don't think I eat anything too strange. Of course Hubby thinks that any seafood is gross or weird so I guess anything in that category will count for him. LOL I have been known to eat raw oysters which some would probably think is gross or weird.

5. Have you ever seen a tornado in real life?
Nope, can't say that I have. I live in the northeast and we don't really have tornado's here. I'm perfectly happy with that too. We have had some tornado warnings this year because of the freakish spring/summer weather that we've been having. 

P.S. I started this last night before my thirty-one party but then didn't get to finish it until Saturday. Oh well...

5 question Friday! Woo hoo!!!

Yippee, I've been waiting ALL week to do my 2nd Five Question Friday!! Is it sad that this is what I've been looking forward to ALL week? Wondering what questions will be asked, will they be easy or hard, will I remember come Friday to do it? These questions come from Mama M.

1. What is one thing you miss the most about childhood?

I would have to say being so carefree. Not having ANY cares in the world. Being able to play all day and it's perfectly ok because the kitchen isn't waiting for you to clean it or the bills aren't waiting for you to pay them.

2. Are you still friends with your friends from high school?

Sadly, I lost touch with most everyone from high school once we graduated. I have reconnected with quite a few of them though thanks to Facebook. But no one lives near me, or maybe it's that I don't live near them, so it makes it hard to get together on a regular basis. It's one thing I do regret, I wish we had stayed in better touch.

3. Is there a catch phrase, cliche, or word that just drives you bonkers every time you hear it?

Hmmmm, I'm sure that there absolutely is but for the life of me I can't think of one right now. I'm going to have to think about this one some more and come back to it.

4. What is one thing that you think symbolizes America...besides "Old Glory"?

Fireworks, the patriotism you see around the 4th of July holiday. Seeing flags on Main Street as you drive through different towns (oops, that was Old Glory).

5. What are your 4th of July weekend plans?
I hope to bring the kids to the lake since we DID pay for the pass and I'm determined to get my money's worth. My dad's birthday is on the 4th so we're going to a picnic at my parents house. And that's probably about all the excitement that there's going to be.
