Five Question Friday

Happy first day of JUNE everyone! Can you believe this much of 2012 is already over? Nuts I tell you, nuts! It's been a while since I participated in this link up but I've been a little behind on getting my posts ready {lots going on this week/weekend} so why not jump back in now? In case you're new to Life in these times... this link up comes from Mama M at My Little Life. Every friday she gets followers to help her compile a list of five questions and invited bloggers to JOIN THE PARTY and share their answers. It's a fun way to get to know a little more about the people behind your favorite blogs. On to the questions!

1. What were you scared of as a kid? My simplest answer would have to be any creepy crawlies, particularly spiders and snakes. {I still hate spiders but at least have the guts to grab a shoe and kill the little suckers. And I'd say my fear of snakes as somewhat subsided since the hubs and I used to own two of them as pets}.

A more complex answer would be that I was afraid of not being liked. I was a big-time follower when I was young and I'm sad to say that it probably cost me a lot of possible friends. I did what the "cool" kids did just so I wouldn't get picked on {although sometimes it didn't matter} and it's one of my biggest regrets. I learned a lot about myself looking back on my stupid, fear-driven, adolescent behavior but I know it probably hurt a lot of really kind people for which I'm truly sorry.

Didn't know the first question in June would be so deep did you?

2. Do you sleep well in a hotel?

For the most part. I used to get really irritated by hotel sheets, or the detergent used to clean them {hopefully they were clean.. bleh} so I would toss and turn a lot. I haven't stayed in a hotel in quite a while but having the hubs with me makes it more like home.

3. If you could meet any celebrity, dead or alive, who and why?

Every time I come across this question I always say Ginger Rogers. She's actually a distant cousin on my mother's father's side and I'd love to pick her brain about her career, personal life, and how she quite literally DANCED through life! I did a project on her in a high school Spanish class and even borrowed one of the show choir gowns to dress up like her. Ever since then I've been in awe of her grace and inspired by her story. Plus the fact that we are related is pretty awesome. While I could go on and on listing celebrities I would love to meet I think it's wise to just stick with my number one and save you pages and pages of names!

4. It's a hot summer day. Do you prefer to be pool side or at the beach?

You can never beat the beach... there's nothing like it! The sand in your toes, the sound of the waves, and that undeniable SMELL of the shore are a few of my all time favorite things. I'm definitely a BEACH BABE!

Although the pool, when it's not swarming with annoying tweens, is also quite nice. I'm excited to get Keelin in her swimsuit and out into the pool someday soon but even more excited to go to the beach in a few months!

5. What is your favorite summer dish?

When I was a kid I used to go CRAZY for this frozen fruit cocktail my mom would make. Creamy, dreamy, sweet, and  fruity, it was always the perfect summer treat. I haven't had it in a while but I'm definitely going to make it this summer and you can bet it will be one of Keelin's favorites in the coming years!
