5 Question Friday

I don't think I've ever been happier to see a Friday morning upon me. It has quite possibly been the longest two weeks ever in my life with David on call and the insanely long hours he has been working. I am sooooo ready for the weekend to begin so he can relax a little!!!!

Since it's Friday it's also time for 5 of the most random questions on the planet :) Head over to Mama M's at My Little Life and join in.

1. What is your favorite thing about summertime?

I love to watch the kids having fun! I used to hate being outside in the summer but now that I am actually out there in the middle of it I think of what I must have missed when I wouldn't go out bc it was too hot. I love to see the smiles on their faces - and there's nothing like a popsicle on a hot day :)

2. What is your ideal retirement location (if money didn't matter)?

Gatlinburg, TN and we will be there one day! This is where David and I have gone pretty much every year since we met and it is Heaven on earth. I never feel more at peace than I do when I am there - just pure happiness!!!!

3. Do you live in the same town you grew up in?

I do. I actually live in the house I grew up in. I can't imagine being anywhere else right now - being in the same town all my life actually taking my kids out of here while they are young kind of scares me.

4. What nervous habit did you have as a child that you kicked to the curb before becoming an adult?

Hmmmm....I used to bite my fingernails something terrible!!!! I mean I was horrible about it. My mom would put that hot stuff on my nails so I would leave them alone and I'd bite that off too. It took years and years to get out of that habit - into my adult years actually. I still revert back sometimes when I'm very nervous or anxious.

5. What is the most embarrassing thing that happened to you while on the job?

Wow that's a hard one bc it has been 6 1/2 years since I've worked outside the home. I'd say the last place I worked at where was I met my husband and though the situation was a bit different then since I wasn't "available" persay it was known beforehand that we were interested and together. I think when it was found out - the first day after was a little embarassing not bc I was embarassed of him but bc I worked in an air conditioning company full of about 20 men - you know how they can get :)

I love to watch my kids have fun too. I think that is so cool that you live in the same house too. I wish I could go back to my old house and town. Such great memories.

I've always wanted to go to Gatlinburg but we haven't had a chance yet. I hear it is beautiful. That would be a wonderful place to retire!

I still bit my nails and I hate it . . I really need to get over it.

I also can't eat a Popsicle I hate that stick . . I have to wrap something around it in order to eat and then I can't eat the part on the stick. I seriously have goosebumps all over just thinking about it.

Hi, Stephanie! It was fun learning more about you. Wish I would have kicked the nail biting habit...I did for a short, short while but reverted back. :(

I made you a little video to show how to use brushes. Hopefully it helps!

I still think that it's awesome that you live in the house you grew up in!!!
