Friday Randoms

Welcome to the first day of the long weekend - whoo hoo!  Anyone got any big plans?  Nothing too much going on around here.  We had thought of possibly taking the kids to Minneapolis for the weekend.  Alas it is the long weekend after all, so nothing great is available.  The wait at the boarder would be a huge waste of time too.  So, a stay-cation it will be.  The girls still have Dance classes on Saturday, and Belle had already committed herself to volunteering at church on Sunday, so staying in town is probably the right thing to do.  Not to mention that we had planned a family date day with my lovely friend Angela (pictured in a layout on a previous post) and her family for Sunday after church.  Getting together with them is always a good time. I'm really hoping that a more laid back weekend will bring with it more quality family time, and a more relaxed feel overall for each one of us.  In sticking with a laid back feel.  I've chosen 10 random questions to answer for you.  This list is part of a larger one I found on the world wide web.  Here goes...

1. Is there anything pink within 10 feet of you?
Part of the cover of the latest Oprah magazine, that I picked up today.  Love this one, it's full of behind the scene type stuff regarding her show.  The best article is her What I Know For Sure piece.  It contains a letter that Mattie, a 12 year old boy battling muscular dystrophy at the time wrote to her regarding her wanting to retire at the 20 year mark of the Oprah show.  Such a sweet, well spoken boy.

2. When is the last time you went to the mall?
Yesterday.  Funny because, I hardly every go to the mall.  But it was time to pick up a few things for Spring, and I had a 40% off your entire purchase coupon for Esprit that I was hoping to use.  I love their stuff, it fits so well.

3. Are you wearing socks right now?
Yes, I am, even though it's 20 degrees Celcius outside right now, it feels like Antarctica in here, I finally turned the air off.

4. Have you been to the movies in the last 5 days?
No sir.  But, Hubby and I are really hoping to get out to one tomorrow night.  I'd really like to see Bridesmaids and/or The Hangover 2.  I realize I may lose some readers after admitting this, but I have to be honest both movies look hysterical.  Plus my friend Kimmi said she loved it and was still laughing about it days after seeing it.  That's all the assurance I need.

5. What was the last thing you had to drink?
Crystal light - pear & pomegranate flavor yum!

6. What are you wearing right now?
Yoga pants, an old t-shirt, and a zip up sweater.  Told ya I'm in a laid back kinda mood.

7. Do you wash your car or let the car wash do it?
Both.  The undiagnosed OCD in me, likes to get 'right in there' and have it sparkly clean from the inside out. 
8. Do you miss anyone right now?
Yes, my dear friend Tanya.  It's been waaaaay too long.  She's moving this weekend, I don't know how they managed to overlook the fact that it's a long weekend, when there's suppose to be no 'heavy lifting' only laying back and relaxing (well that's my plan anyhow), don't worry I'm not being a bad friend, they've hired movers, and have been slowing moving the small stuff over for a week already.  We do have a girl's scrappy day planned for June, can't wait!

 9. What's the last sporting event you watched? 
I'm not a big sports fan, but really love watching football.  I've been a CFL fan for a long time, but this year, I actually got into watching NFL games.  We are officially Bears fans in this household, bucking the trend, which is to cheer for the Vikings.  We get razzed all the time for it.

10. Your dream vacation?
I think I've already taken my dream vacation.  Three years ago we took a family trip with friend down to Turks & Caicos.  It was simply breathtaking.  We did Beaches resort, all inclusive, with loads of activities for the kiddos.  It was a dream I tell you.  Another place I'd love to see is Greece, sans kids...I mean c'mon look at it...

That's it, that's all folks.  Be blessed my friends.  Thanks for stopping by, and for all your lovely comments.
