Five Question Friday! :)

Can you believe we are in MAY already????  I know we've been here almost a week, but seems UNREAL!

Speaking of unreal, I had a VERY eventful morning...I witnessed a car accident.  And not just someone rear ending another car...a full on flipped truck!  The truck ran a red light...a van, not noticing the truck still coming through the intersection, pulled out for the green light, t-boned the truck, sending the truck up on two wheels and eventually upside down.  I sat there and literally couldn't believe what I had seen!  Scary stuff.

Thankfully, when I left it appeared that both drivers were fine.

I've seen cars go up on two wheels, but most of the time it's on TV or at the race track.  This was something I had NEVER witnessed before and hope to NEVER witness again!

This weekend is shaping up to be SUPER busy.  But it's all fun bring it on!  Today, I'm participating in our 24 Hour Famine to raise money for our mission trip this summer.  So far, so good.  Talk to me again about 2pm and we'll re-assess.  Actually, you may not want to talk to me at 2pm...could be dangerous! ;)

My famine ends at 6pm and we are celebrating with a cookout! 

Tomorrow, I'm walking in our local Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K.  Dylan is running!  Then my niece has a t-ball game...Dylan has a soccer game...and then we are off to the Spring Folly for the afternoon/evening!

Oh, yeah...and Mother's Day on Sunday...which I'm hoping I'll be awarded with one big, fat nap! :)

Speaking of my niece & t-ball...she got the "game ball" at her game last night!

Way to go Aly!  She said she got the game ball because she worked hard and played hard! :)

And now it's time for 5 Question Friday with Mama M! :)  If you'd like to join in the fun, head over to her site, copy the questions & link up!

1. Have you ever had roommates?

Does my sister count?  We were roommates as younger children.  Not always, but for a short time.

Also, in college I had a roommate...and suitemates.

Currently, my only roommate is Dylan! :)

2. How many names do you/your children have? (i.e. Prince Charming William Phillip Arthur Louis John Jacob Jingleheimer-Schmidt)

Dylan only has a first, middle & last name.  So, I guess three?

And I'm the same...first, middle & last!

3. Did you watch the Royal Wedding?

I didn't get up at any insane hour and I didn't make a special plan to watch it...but it did happen to be on while I was getting ready.  And, yes, I did get sucked in! :) 

Kate was just simply beautiful...emphasis on the "simple"...which I think was a total plus!

4. What is the messiest room in your house?

Hands down...Dylan's room.  To him, it's organized mess.  To me, I walk in and immediately wonder how he finds clean clothes every day...and why can't he empty his garbage can instead of continuing to pile it up...and why is he surprised that he can't find his thumb drive that was "right on his night stand" (which conveniently turned up in one of his shorts pockets...mostly likely washed & dried...but it still works, so we don't question it!). 

I just ignore it.

5. What is your ideal mothers day?

As previously stated, I just want to take a nap.

A good, long nap.

In the sun would be awesome; however, it looks like we will be having rain and/or thunderstorms all no sunshine.

But that's OK...I'll nap like a champ!

And maybe watch a movie.

Most likely, at the same time! ;)

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers...and to those of you who aren't yet Mom's, I hope you get to enjoy your day with your mom...even if it's just by phone or Skype! :)

This is me & my mom from a couple of years ago...on my birthday to be exact! :)

Jenn ... my favorite Mother's Day story is when Dylan and I went shopping for your Mother's Day gifts ... purple lipstick and cinnamon breath spray! That is what he wanted and nothing would shake his choices!
