Five Question Friday

It's Five Question Friday time!  I really like this weeks questions for some reason.  Probably because my answers will have more to offer than a simple one word answer.  Anywho...make sure to check out Mama Ms blog to join in the fun!

1.  Did you have a favorite blanket or toy as a kid?  If so, do you still have it.
Yes and yes!  I sucked my thumb when I was little and I had this little puppet type bear thing.  I called him Buddy and on the top it had this soft spot that I would rub on my upper lip.  Here is a picture of me with it when I was little.
I don't know what I was so mad about in this picture but I can assure you it was NOT my fault.  And does Belli look like me or what?

Anyway...And here is a picture of Buddy now.
I still love him dearly.  I normally keep him under lock and key so Belli won't hurt him.  Yeah, I'm just that crazy.

2.  Do you dream in color?
Yes.  As a matter of fact I don't think I have ever had a dream that was not in color.

3.  How tall are you?  Do you wish you were shorter or taller?
I'm 5'2.  And yes, I wish I was taller.  I would love to have maybe just two more inches.  I think 5'4 is a good height.  I would especially love it if I could gain two inches but no extra weight.  That would be awesome.

4.  If you could have anyone's voice as the guide on your GPS who would it be?
It would be Dennis Haysbert, the guy who played David Palmer on 24 and does the All State commercials now.  His voice is so soothing and calm.  I know that if I ever got lost and heard his voice guiding me it would make me feel so much better!

5.  Do you return you cart to the corral or just leave it where ever in the parking lot?
I always bring it to the corral or bring it all the way back inside.  This is a major pet peeve of mine because I used to work at the grocery store.  It is really irritating and time consuming for the baggers to have to search all over the place for carts.  If they are working at a place where they get tips taking the time to have to get carts takes away opportunities to get tips from taking groceries out.  Just a little FYI for you guys!

The only time it is ok to leave the cart where ever is when you have a child in the car and the corral is too far away to leave the child in the car.


  1. She sure does look like you did :-)

    I pictured you as 5'2". Love it when I'm right.

    Either that or you told me and I already knew...

  2. This is my first time on Fridays questions, and am enjoying reading about all my new friends. I am a new follower and would love for you to come to my blog each week for some fun and contest that are all coming up. I will come back and check on you each friday to learn more about you.

  3. I seriously love that you sucked your thumb like that. I think we've discussed this before, but I did the same EXACT thing with my upper lip! I didn't stop sucking my thumb until my parents finally took my blanket away when I was 7! I still have it tucked away in a box though! :)

    And Belli DOES look so much like you! I love that!

  4. Yeah, I'm a slacker! Just getting around now!! The first thing I thought when I saw that photo, was "WOW! That sure looks like Belli!!" LOVE it!

    So, Kate was right on with your height...I totally had you pegged as 5'8"!
