Beautiful Friday!

Today is gonna be a beautiful Friday here in NC.  Forecasted temps of 73 = breaking out the flip flops! :)  I know this is short lived and we will probably get snow next week...but I'm going to enjoy this beautiful weather while it lasts!

*BTW for my other NC blog friends...I haven't heard of snow in the forecast next's just how the NC weather know what I'm talking about! ;)

So, it's time for another edition of Five Question Friday, brought to you by Mama M! :)  Head on over, grab the questions & link up!  You know you want to!

1. Have you worn the same outfit more than one day in a row?

I honestly can't remember a time when I've worn the same outfit more than one day in a row.  Except maybe a work uniform, but I don't think that counts.  Even when I'm sick, I must change matter how bad I feel.  Fresh clothes make you feel just a little bit better.

2. If you had to choose any LARGE city to live in, which would it be?

I can't say that I would ever want to live in a LARGE city.  Let's face it people...I can't go to Wal-Mart on a Saturday after 9am...I don't think being herded through city streets would work for me. 

Actually, now that I think about it...Orlando is not so bad.  It's a pretty large city but it doesn't feel as large as it is.  I'm sure there are the sketchy parts...but Dylan's grandparents live just minutes from downtown and, other than the skyline, you wouldn't really know you were that close.  So, I guess I could choose Orlando.

3. Fly or drive with the kids on vacation?

Either is fine by me.  Dylan started flying when he was about 10 months old.  I don't really like to be in a car more than about 4 or 5 hours flying works for me.  But I don't remember any negative car trips with Dylan.  We drove to Orlando once when he was about 3...Dylan wasn't a problem...but a sleep deprived driver was scary...

4. What is your idea of "spring cleaning"?

I don't really do much "spring cleaning"...I guess for me that would just be going through the junk I've accumulated over the past my the outside of my house, which desperately needs to be powerwashed. 

5. What is the best book you have ever read?

hmmm...that's tough for me.  I'm such an avid reader and read a lot of books that it's hard for me to chose just one.  I really enjoyed The Shack...I loved the portrayal of God in this book.  At Christmas, I read The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans...which was such a great reminder of what Christmas is really all about.  That one impacted me greatly.

Hope you have a Happy Friday...and hope that it's as lovely a day for you as it will be for me, wherever you are! :)

HOORAY! for warmer temps!

spring cleaning--I hear you

Never read The Christmas Box. I always intend to when I hear about it. Then the season rolls around and I forget.

Enjoy your flip flops!

that is all

I actually live in a suburb of Dallas so it has a "smaller town" feel, but I can get to downtown Dallas or the Ballpark in about 20 minutes. :)

Did they make a movie about The Christmas Box? I watch one every year called that- it has Richard Thomas in it.
