Happy Friday!

It is the weekend! So glad. :) And it's a new month. For some reason i always love a new month! But i'm especially excited about October - lots of fun things on the calendar!

Well, here it is...Five Question Friday... link up at My Little Life.

1. Did you have a pen pal when you were little (or now)? Where were (are) they from?
When i was little, i had a subscription to a magazine that i THINK was called Creative Kids...something like that.  On the back cover, there was a list of other kids, their address, date of birth & their hobbies. I remember picking some of them & writing them back & forth for YEARS. Crazy now i do not remember any of their names or where they were from. And now i'm kind of freaking that they put all that info on the back of a published magazine...hello, stalkers? We thought nothing of it back then... weird. Maybe the address wasn't on it & we somehow sent it to the magazine....?

When i went on a missions trip to Panama at age 19, i met a girl named Rebecca. We became instant friends & pen pals & remain pen pals to this day. I have visited her a few times - first in Canada where she is from & where i went to be in her wedding - & later in Tennessee where she lived once she married her husband. She also has visited me here in BR twice, the second time was for my wedding. :) They are now moving to New York & i hope to be able to visit them there! Anyway, we don't do snail mail AS OFTEN as we did from about 1997 - 2008, just because now we have email & facebook...though it did take her FOREVER to get email or facebook...which was good because it kept up the snail mail. :)

me & rebecca, on my wedding day :)

2. If you could do a different job for one day, what would it be?
I am sure this comes as no surprise... i'd love to spend one day on Broadway - either on stage or as stage manager. I also think it would be fun to be a casting director.

3. Do you remember your biggest fear from when you were little?
Roller Coasters. Which is crazy because i love them now.

4. What do you think is a waste of time? Why? 
Watching TV... don't get me wrong, i used to be a TV junkie. I didn't care, either. I like TV! But i was kind of forced out of it because when we got married, Brad didn't have one. I convinced him to let us get a TV with all the Wal-mart giftcards we got for wedding gifts. He agreed, mainy because we wanted a TV to watch movies on. So we got the TV but we didn't get cable because the few channels we have are clear as day & that is all we need. I wouldn't mind getting into one or two shows this season, though. But the days of sitting in front of the TV for hours are long gone.

5. What is the oldest item in your closet? I have no idea...but i'm SURE it's something of Brad's! HA!

Your turn! :)


  1. I don't think I ever had a pen pal growing up. It would have been fun! My husband couldn't live without tv because he has to have his sports. I usually watch about one or two shows a night but other than that, if the tv is on, it's mainly for background noise!

  2. TV is a waste! I still watch it, though I've contemplated getting rid of cable a LOT.
