5QF - 10/12

Well, as always...the days are flying by at warp speed! Some weeks are sooooo busy, even though I feel like I haven't accomplished a single thing. ha

This week I had to take my car to be fixed. It was overheating and the fan seemed to be running extra hard. On Wednesday, Eric and I sat at the dealership for about 3 hours while they fixed it. My pretty lil Cruze now has a new thermostat housing, was completely reprogrammed, tires rotated and got an oil change since it was almost time. Thank goodness that is all taken care of!

Mom and Eric have been busy burning the limbs and brush from all the tree trimming. Our trees look so much better (and I think Eric feels better because he knows the house is more safe without all those dead limbs looming over the roofline!). ha ;)

It is Fall Break for the local schools this week and due to the new school schedule, most of the schools had at least 1 full week off classes and a few have 2 weeks off. Must be nice!?! Our 2 days back when I was in school seems lousy in comparison. haha We had the girls thru Tuesday night. Monday they carved pumpkins with Eric. We let them each pick out a pumpkin at a local pumpkin patch on Sunday evening. Tuesday they helped burn brush/limbs. That night mom took them to see Hotel Transylvania and out to dinner. They loved it! I'm lucky to have a mom who willingly spends time with my future step-daughters and that they are comfortable in spending time with her as well. :)

Tomorrow I have another Scentsy booth at a local Craft Show. Hopefully it is a good day and people are buying! Cause this girl is working HARD to earn that free honeymoon to Hawaii thru my Scentsy business! And then Sunday is a girls day in Indy with mom and Jen....I'm wedding dress shopping for the first time! YAY! I'm nervous, but also excited. I am not the easiest person in the world to fit and I have pretty much always disliked shopping. Also, we are a little under 7 months away from the wedding, so I really need to find THE dress....ASAP. So if you've got a spare second or two on Sunday, say a quick prayer that I find a dress I love and that looks good on me...and that is within my budget! Thanks ;)

And now for some 5QF fun! Hop over to Mama M's and join the party!

1. Did you have any homecoming traditions?

I attended two high schools that did not have football, so homecoming was just basketball. It was a dance after the game. haha College was the same way...just a special little half-time deal during the football game.

2. Do you ask your spouse before spending money?

Not married yet, but as of right now...not really. I would discuss a big purchase, but we currently keep our accounts separate and most of what I buy is for the both of us (groceries, etc) so there's not much to discuss!

3. If you could be famous for something, what would it be?

I would want to be famous for being a good leader and teaching people how to get organized. Dorky, right? Maybe so, but leadership and organization have been the two biggest areas I've spent my life developing through the groups and events I've been a member in.

4. Have you ever seriously thought you were going crazy?

There are probably times others thought I was going crazy, but never any time that I can recall where I felt like I was going crazy! ;)

5. How do you eat your steak? Burger? (as in well done, medium or still moo'ing)

This answer always USED to be Well. Now for the most part, Medium Well, is my answer. I do like buffalo burgers and if you order a truly lean meat like that Well're gonna get charcoal. ha I don't mind a little pink, but my cow better not still be moo'ing on my plate!


  1. Good luck with your wedding dress shopping. One of my favourite shows on TV is "Say yes to the dress".

  2. Your high school didn't have football?? Good luck with your dress shopping!! You will have to send me pics!
