Five Question Friday

Follow Me on Pinterest Hey Y'all!! It's Friday! Can I get a hell yeah? I know we just had a day off in the middle of the week but really it was only enough to piss me off. So let's say hello to the weekend! Let's get started with a little 5 Question Friday!

 Alright, here we go:

1) Is love at 1st sight possible?

As jaded as I am, I totally believe in love at first sight. When I was in college I fell hard for a perfect stranger. Luckily for me he happened to be the best friend of my new best (college) friend's boyfriend. (Still with me? lol) I knew from the first moment that I saw him that there was something super special about him and my heart swelled. We didn't have a happy ending but I blame it on the fact that he was in the Navy and just a few short months after we first met he was shipped off to Cuba. 

2) How did you choose your pet's name?

I didn't! LuLu is a rescue. I would have never picked LuLu as a name but it fits her.

Pet names that I've picked in the past are: (Captain) Morgan, Tequila (Rose), and Skyy (Vodka). Hmm, yea, awkward now that I look back on it...

3) What are you considering giving up?

Wait, what? Why do I have to give anything up? Did I miss something? Just kidding.

Actually, the hubby and I have discussed giving up eating out all the time. I menu plan to death, I go to the grocery store and buy food for up to 2 weeks at a time and STILL we eat out constantly. I can't figure out why exactly but we did figure out that it really has to stop! We've allowed ourselves one meal out once a month (yikes!)

4) How much do you pay your babysitter?

Yea, we don't pay a babysitter... mostly cause we can't really afford one...which also means that we are very rarely without our children. As it stands if we need a sitter we turn to my in laws. Recently we went out of town for the weekend and we brought back a beautiful rustic corner cabinet for them to say "Thanks."

5) How "young" is old enough to babysit?

This is such a HARD question to answer. I started babysitting at a really young age. I watched myself after school very early on and I'd say by the time I was 10 or 11 I was caring for my cousins alone during the day all summer long. I was old enough even though I was young. I'd say that this is definitely a case by case basis dependent upon the person doing the babysitting and also the children that they will be watching. There are some 17 year old kids that aren't old/mature enough to babysit so I don't think that there is an "old enough" benchmark.

Y'all have a great weekend!

  1. I totally agree with you on the babysitting age! I remember babysitting with a friend when we were like 13. Now I feel like we must have had no idea what we were doing but we basically just sat and watched movies with the kids until they fell asleep!

  2. Pretty much! Movies, legos & video games. That's all we did! lol
