Five Question Friday
Welcome to Five Question Friday!! You've come to the right place if you want a fun, easy post or if you've suddenly discovered your muses have become all jumbled up with the new school schedule.
Rules for 5QF: Copy and paste the following questions to your blog post, answer them, and then watch for the linky post to appear Friday morning and LINK UP! Oh, and remember (pay close attention...this is the important one)...HAVE FUN! Remember @5crookedhalos and use hashtag #5QF if you go the Twitter route!
1. What is your favorite fall family tradition?
Apple picking is a great tradition that we have done for the last three years. The boys love picking fruit from the trees. I love picking up Indian corn and pumpkins, for decorations. (It is a true sign that fall has arrived!) We then come home and make apple crisp and apple pie depending on the apples that are ready to be picked. It is a great day spent as a family, and I look forward to it each year!
2. If money weren't an issue, how many kids would you have?
I always wanted a huge family, like my grandparents. I told my husband that I wanted 12 kids, the first night we met, and he didn’t flip out! Thank goodness the magic number for us was two. (I would have tried for a girl...but probably would have ended up with another boy.)
3. If you were to get a tattoo, what would it be and where would you put it?
I have a tattoo, it is located on my left foot, and is Latin for "Part of the one I love." (My husband has the same tattoo on his arm.) I wanted one for years, but couldn't come up with something that would mean the same thing to me, later in life. Thank goodness I didn’t get a tattoo with those original ideas, as I would have been stuck with a daffy duck, an Egyptian ankh, an OES star, or a lizard. I am so glad I waited; in fact I just got my first tattoo this May!
4. What condiment is a must in your house?
The question would be answered differently by each member of our family: For me its mayonnaise, my husband puts spicy brown mustard on sandwiches, my older son loves BBQ sauce, and for my baby...he can’t live without ketchup.
5. How did your spouse/fiance propose?
My husband proposed while leaning on the side of his truck, we were pulled over on the side of a highway, and had stopped to watch a sunset. He drove down to visit me when I was in college, and to bring me home for the weekend. It was a four hour drive; he said he couldn't wait any longer. He did not kneel, or have some long drawn out proposal, but it was very heartfelt and a romantic moment for the two of us. We couldn't wait to get home to share the news with our family.
