ok so now I am WAY behind on this challenge BUT I refuse to skip a day. REFUSE! So I shall lump them all up in ONE BIG maybe longish post. Here Goes:
Day 20: What do you collect?
I am not a collector of much. I am pretty good at tossing stuff I don’t use often however I do collect Starbucks City Mugs. I have some from various spots around the globe now, thanks to various friends, and family who travel much more than this momma. I am thankful to those who are so kind to save some suitcase space for my little mug boxes Thanks especially to Grandma who brought some back from Japan and China *my most treasured ones by far* I also collect Starbucks Holiday ornaments since I began working for the company which is pretty cool to have. I actually had to buy them their own little tree to display them on this year!
Day 21: Biggest Fear:
By far my biggest fear is anything creepy, crawly or pretty much anything that flies. You name it and I will squirm. I absolutely HATE spiders and REFUSE absolutely REFUSE to go into one of those bird aviaries. Those terrify me which in turn makes my son laugh at me. Little stinker.
Day 22: Home Alone …what to do?
Well upon the rare chance I am home all by my lonesome, I generally use this time to catch up on all my dvr’d “trash” tv and all the shows my husband makes fun of me for watching. RHOBH and Project Runway typically. It’s not often that I do get time alone but it is treasured when it happens! Also this season of P.R. I miss Michael Kors and his snappy comebacks. I also think they need to send Layana to pack up her work space. She is driving me batty!
Day 23: Do I have a hobby?
No I do not have a hobby, I have some things I enjoy but for the most part the closest thing to a hobby for me is playing a video game. I am not very crafty and I hate to bake *I do like to cook but hate baking*. I enjoy photography and that could sort of be a hobby but I haven’t been very good about remembering to take my camera along with me when I am out and about. I should try to do that more often…:)
Day 24: Most embarrassing Moment:
I have a quite a few embarrassing moments. The top ones that come to mind are …. tripping over a curb at Disney and landing flat on my face in flowers and dirt in front of the “cool kids” of our church youth group during a Night of Joy event when I was about 14. MORTIFYING. Tripping over a tree root on my way to 6th period my sophomore year of High School and ripping my tights, scraping my knee and getting dirty, all right in front of the Jr boy I had a crush on. He laughed at me for the next year. Jerk. Borrowing my brother in laws car to run to the store and forgetting to take the emergency brake off, I reversed into the air. He still doesn’t let me live that down 8 years later. :/ falling on my butt into dirty grease trap water at work when one of our pumps broke and I slipped. (it’s not the worst thing in the world however I was in khakis and thus had a brownish, blackish bottom until I got home to change. I often say things that come out wrong and in turn the customers laugh at me while my face is turning varying shades of pink to red. Its my life. I’m sort of used to being a little mortified at least once a month
….. Well this is moving along nicely.
Day 25: My location is pretty nice. We don’t live in an actual neighborhood, its more of a suburban rural typish area? We have a really large yard for the kids to play in and the weather is pretty fabulous most of the year besides May-August. Those months tend to be pretty dreadful. HOT and HUMID. However its pretty and we are right between the beach and Disney World so 45 minutes to two of the best places in Florida
Day 26: Favorite Food
My all time favorite food that I can eat any time is sushi. I LOVE sushi. I credit this love to my friend Christy and her then boyfriend who introduced it to us at a little tiny sushi spot near our downtown area. Yoko’s. We loved it and for a while that was the only spot we would hit for a night out. *all pre children of course cause its a little pricy* Now its like every two months or so that we splurge and go out for sushi. I can’t wait for my kids to get a little older and introduce them to this love of ours. I also really love cheesecake and that is also something I don’t eat often but that’s because it is ridiculously high in calories and sugar. BUT its tasty!!!!!
Day 27: Top 3 Online Friends who I want to meet in real life.
I don’t really have any “friends” per se online that I don’t know in real life. I suppose I could say I would like to meet some of my favorite bloggers in real life. I would like to meet several of the apraxia moms that I follow simply because of our link with apraxia. I would love to hear their kids and see where mine may be in a few years! I would also love to meet Jess from Diary of a Mom and Jeneil from Rhema’s Hope.
Day 28: Guilty Pleasure:
I guess one of my favorite guilty pleasures is thrift store shopping. I love it. I have fun not only getting deals but also people watching. Some of those people are INTENSE! I also like to hide my Reese’s from the family and sneak them every once in a while and they don’t know where they are coming from. However this generally incites an intense seeking game for X to find my hiding spot so then I’m off to get a new one.
Day 29: Favorite Time of the year:
I used to really enjoy fall (LOVE the weather, the decor and the smells of fall – well the “fake” smells cause florida doesnt’ really offer any new smells beyond dead fish every once in a while. However fall now means the dreadful Holiday season is just around the corner and work becomes ridiculously busy and no matter how well you plan and hire for it, it’s still busier than last year so, now I don’t enjoy fall as much. I really enjoy spring though. Its warm enough to enjoy the beaches and water parks but not as hot as summer gets so you can still really have a good time and not sweat to death on the trek to water. I love spring colors and decorations too. Easter egg dying is one of my favorite things to do with the kids and this year I introduced them to those little plastic sleeves that you put around the eggs and dip in the boiling water to seal them to the egg. Those are my absolute favorite since I was a kid. I thought they were so cool and so does my son now. I shall be on the lookout for some more after easter to just “do for the fun of it”
