Five Question Friday

I wish I could be excited that it's Friday.. but this is only halfway through my work week. :( We have a booth at a local Art Fair this weekend, and since I'm the event coordinator, and it's an event, well, you know. The good news? I only have to help set up and tear down each day, rather than working a bunch of shifts during the day. That means I'll have time to work on the house and read this weekend, rather than stand outside in the probable rain at the Fair.
In any case, here's Five Question Friday!
1. Do you feel guilty spending money on yourself?

It was actually very hard for me to ask for my birthday present this year - an iPhone and day of shopping with my mom while she was in town. It's odd that I am the main breadwinner of my little family and I feel badly when I stop for a Starbucks. There's better ways to spend that money, and I know that. But it's still hard to skip my coffee fix in the morning.

2. How well do you know your neighbors?

We moved in to our new townhouse a year ago at the end of this month. We have met one next door neighbor, but don't know him very well. It's not one of those neighborhoods, I don't think.

3. What age are you looking forward to being?

I would like to be 30. It seems like an adult age, and I know by then Husband will be done with law school, hopefully with a good job that he loves, my wedding planning business would be up and running and we'd be discussing getting pregnant. All things that I'm looking forward to. :)

4. Do you get excited when the mail comes? Why?

The mail only contains bills. I do get excited when it's birthday or Christmas season. Then there might be presents!

5. What is your earliest childhood memory?

I think this is hard question because your parents contanstly tell you stories about your childhood, so after a while, you wonder if you actually remember those things happening, or if your parents just told you what you did.

The earliest thing I can remember - and KNOW that it's not just because I've heard the story a million times - is my first theatrical experience. My mom took me to a local outdoor theatre for a production of Peter Pan. It was Cathy Rigby portraying the boy who just won't go up. The production calls for lots of flying, obviously, and my mom's tickets had placed right at the front of the audience, and Ms. Rigby flew right over our heads during one scene.

I know that I was memorized - and looked at my mom and told her I wanted to do THAT. Acting. That's where it all started. :)

Too bad I can't sing like that...


  1. hey! you redid your header! love it!

  2. re: 1 - yep, I completely understand and sympathize...

  3. I don't really know my neighbors either-hopefully I'll make some time for that soon!
