Five Question Friday

Oh, I love a good question and answer time!  I decided to jump aboard the Five Question Friday ~ just for kicks!

1.  What is your current favorite tv show?

If I'm in the mood to laugh, it would be The Middle and Modern Family.  Gloria could read a menu and crack me up.  I always love The Amazing Race.  It fascinates me, and as rock-solid as our marriage is, it just may be the end of us if we ever went on that show.

2.  What's the worst haircut you ever got?

Although I didn't realize it at the time, it would probably have to be the Dorothy Hammil cut I had in the third grade.  If I had some guts I would post a picture.  Apart from that, Marlece is more qualified to answer that than I am.  Sometimes we don't recognize the horror atop our own head until someone takes that head into their own hands.

3.  What was something you did as a child that you thought you were so cool for doing?

This was a tough one for me.  I don't really recall ever thinking I was "cool".  But I do remember getting my first 10-speed bike.  It was black with colored stripes scattered about.  I loved riding my bike down "the big hill" at our neighborhood park, which I now realize was just a slight incline. 

4.  Do you have any GREAT frugal family fun tips?

One is to always stay at a hotel that has a buffet breakfast included with your stay.  Another is to scout out the restaurants that offer Kids Eat Free (or for 99 cents) on a night of the week.  One of our favorite Mexican places does that, and combine that with a coupon for the adults and we have a cheap meal out!  And the one I think everyone does:  buy a jumbo tub of popcorn, bring your own baggies and fill up everyone on popcorn from your own tub.  Then get your free refill all for yourself.  Hmm.  None of these are GREAT, and all of them involve food!

5.  Would you drive across the country if you had the money to fly?

Well, this completely depends on who's travelling with me.  If it's the whole family, no thank you in the biggest way to a cross-country drive in the family van.  Just me and Brad?  Maybe.  I could envision a lot of fun eating our way across the country, discovering places to stop (food related, of course) that we otherwise would never see.  And as long as I had a big pile of books, some good music, and great uninterrupted conversation with my man, I'd be willing. 


  1. Ok, I think you need to test that statement you posed on #1....let's see you do the Amazing Race with Brad....hey it can't be that much worse than running a half marathon with him, unless you have to eat something yucky on the way.

  2. Ahhh... As for the Amazing Race... I do believe quite possibly 'twould be the navigation nightmare that would do us in! A close second would be the choking down of indescribably frightful exotic food, while sitting in a stinky, cramped, unknown location on the globe. :)
