Five Question Friday

Happy Friday Y'all!! This mama is ready for the weekend; we're going to the zoo tomorrow! Expect lots of pictures :)

It's time for 5QF and this week it is being hosted by Kate @ Kate's Life. Y'all go over and say hi, k?

Let's get this party started!

1) Do you call them flip flops, sandals, thongs, or slippers?

I call them flip flops or flops. Sandals have straps, thongs are underwear and slippers are soft and fuzzy. See the difference?

2) Are you a "my kids can do no wrong" mom or a "Johnny punched you? What did you do to him first?!" kind of mom?

I'm definitely not the first kind. My kids can be hellions and I"m the first to warn ya about it. The second kind could be me, if I'm talking directly to my own children because they pick on each other all the time. It's kind of  expected. Around other people these little brats tend to be really well behaved so I don't typically have any kind of issue there.

3) Would you confront a good friend who looks down on your husband/significant other?

In my opinion, if they did that to my husband then they probably aren't a good friend. So, yes. If that friend had a legit reason for feeling negatively about my husband then I would hear them out but I would expect them to extend me the same courtesy.

4) Biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve has got to be negativity/pessimism. I am the most glass half full kind of person you will ever meet and negative people really bring me down. I realize that things can't be peachy 24/7 but I try to make the best of every situation and folks who are Debbie Downers all day, every day really rake on my nerves.

5) What's your favorite take out meal?

Hands down, Chinese take out from this one place by my husband's office. It's so deliciously wonderful. Let me call him and let him know to pick up dinner... :)

Y'all have a wonderful weekend!!

  1. Totally agree on the negativity comment! It's hard to be optimistic all the time, but people who complain about everything seriously bring me down! I can't handle it! Just found your blog and I have loved getting to know you better. I'm excited to follow along!

  2. Oh, yes-- the Debbie Downers are enough to drive me up a wall. My husband tends to be that way a bit--not in that he'll go on and on about problems or whatever, but his radar tends to be tuned to the bad stuff first. It's absolutely his upbringing--his mom was probably the most bitter person I've ever known--and he's thankfully growing out of it little by little, but it can wear you down.

  3. Your husband sounds a lot like mine! He never gets excited about a thing, and he definitely sees the cons before the pros in every situation. That can really start to bum a girl out! I just call him on it, and he tries to perk up a bit ;)

    Thanks for stopping by Cheri!
