5QF & Feel Good Friday

Friday feels so good today!  I'm gonna start with Mama M's 5 Question Friday...and then I'll hit you with Feel Good Friday...OK?  Of course, it's OK! :)

1. What do you listen to while driving?

In the mornings, the Two Guys Named Chris show...unless Chris & Chris are on vacation...then it's usually K-Love.  For the rest of the day, usually K-Love unless I'm trying to learn a song or if I'm loving a new CD.

Occasionally, though, I just flip around the channels if I need a different kind of music for the yesterday when it was 75, blue skies, windows down, sunroof open...I needed to rock out! :)

2. What is your least favorite thing about Fall?


Ok, I have a confession...I love to see a yard full of leaves.  But, according to my Dad, that's not good for the grass...and that's why you have to rake them.  Plus they blow into your neighbor's yard...

Poo on that...I don't rake.  I don't have that many it's a good thing I don't rake! :)

3. What does your dream house look like, inside and out?

I love my little house...but I have a laundry list of things that I WILL have in my next house...

Topping the list?  At least 2 bathrooms.  I currently share a bathroom with a 14 year old boy...enough said.

The other must have?  A eat-in kitchen or dining room.  If I have the eat-in kitchen, no dining room is necessary.  Quite honestly, I think formal dining rooms are a waste of space.  I'd rather have office space or extra living room space instead of a dining room.  But that's just me.

Truly, my dream house would be a Victorian farmhouse...kind of like this...

or this...

With enough of the "old" to keep the charm, but with the modern updates of course.  I just like for a house to be comfy.  Classic...nothing outrageous.

4. Would you ever own a minivan?

I would try really hard NOT to.  I don't really like offense.  They just aren't me. 

5. Do you wash new clothes before wearing them?

Underwear & bathing suits - yes.  Everything else, probably not.

And's time for Feel Good Friday! :)

Why is today a Feel Good Friday?  Well, my week has been good...nothing spectacular.  Well, I'm feeling really good about my Couch 2 5K, but let's be honest...I'm only 2 runs in!

But I do feel good today...

And I have a great weekend ahead!

I like to have weekends with no plans, but I usually end up either spending way more money than I should or doing nothing and feeling like a sloth.  But this weekend, I'm gonna be busy, busy, busy!

First of all, tonight I have to work the concession stand at the football game for Dylan's school.  Each athletic team is asked to pull one varsity game concession stand duty.  I'm kind of looking forward to it.  I don't have many opprotunities to volunteer for the school, but this is something I can do.  The favorite twins are on Homecoming Court at their high school and I don't get to go see them.  But they will send me pics!

Then tomorrow, I plan to run, keep Ayden for a bit, clean my house (before the EPA condemns it) and then Alyson is coming to spend the night!

And Sunday's are always good - church and then an afternoon to just chill.  I'm hoping to catch up on my DVR'd shows that I missed this week. 

So, all in all, I'm looking forward to this weekend!

Oh, yeah...this also made me feel good this week...

Evidently, Ayden likes to help do laundry!  My mom said that he does this at her house too...if she's trying to fold laundry, he has to be in the basket!

Happy Friday & have a great weekend! :)

Great Plans, Great Pic, if you house get condemned, mine would what ever is worse than that. Grandson Kaden must have watched Hocus Pocus and thought we had witches because there is salt everywhere and just when we think we have it all cleaned up we find more. How he got away with all this mess is beyond me, I was probably sitting right here!!

I would love to live in a Farmhouse too especially with a wrap around porch. Ahhhh.

We have a dining room and we call it a dining room, HOWEVER, we have never had a table in it! It used to have a desk, then a chair. Now it has bookshelves and a kid's playhouse that I just moved inside for winter! I am actually writing about that this week!

Im with you on the minivan...I love all the little conveniences they have but its just not me!

Love your answers!! Oh, I don't know if I ever responded about the Janet Evanovich book. One For the Money is the first one of hers I've read. I'm liking it so far! I read over half of it in one day, then I haven't had time to sit and read since then (I have an "ebook" version of it, so I have to read it on my computer).
