Five Question Friday #7

1. Vow renewal ceremonies-yay or nay?

I want to do a vow renewal ceremony because me and Chris didn't get to have the ceremony that we both wanted. We went to the courthouse the night before he left for MCT and neither of our families were there. I also would love to be able to be a bride for a day. I want to have the perfect wedding dress, my hair done, and my nails done. I want to have my family and Chris' family there and have the most perfect day ever.

2. What sound/s annoy you the most?

The sound that annoys me the most is a bee. The buzzing of the bee! I can't stand it!

3. If you had to pick, would you have only all boys, or only all girls for kids?

I don't know if I could pick. I have a baby girl right now. I think that I would rather have all girls though, because I already have everything that I need for a baby girl.

4. Do you believe in alternative medicine?

I don't know. I believe in whatever helps you to feel better faster so that you can get on with your life.

5. Would you take a family member's children and raise them if they needed it?

Abso-stinkin'-lutely!! Of course, I would need to consider the situation and determine what is best for our family, but if a family member's children were slated to go to foster care, I would take them in.

I know there are a lot of fabulous foster families out there, but I also know there are some awful ones. I would want to protect those innocent children from anymore upheaval in their lives by taking the chance of sending them to a foster home that is less than ideal.

1. Facebook or Twitter?
I like Facebook better. I don't care for Twitter. The only reason that I got it was because my Uncle had it.
2. Hard Tacos or Soft Tacos?
I prefer soft tacos.
3. Gardening or crafting?
Both. I would love to have a garden and I am wanting to do more with crafting. I want a sewing machine so that I could make the dresses that I am seeing all over the internet for Lyric.
4. Fruit or vegetables?
Fruit. I love my vegetables for sure, but I love the sweetness of fruit.
5.  Motorcycle or bicycle?
I haven't ridden my bicycle in ages. I would love to ride again though. I haven't ridden a motorcycle either. Although, I wanted to at one point. But can't now that I have Lyric.

1. If your husband had the BIG V and you got pregnant what would your first reaction be? For the dudes, what would your first reaction be if your wife told you she was pregnant after the Big V?

I try to change our sheets at least once a week. Lyric's sheets I tend to have to change more frequent as her diaper leaks through about every other day.

I think that I would rather have a pat-down as with a full body scan they can see you naked.
5. Since it is fair time...what's your favorite fair (county or state) memory?
I remember the Terry Clark concert that I went to with a friend and his wife. It was I believe one of the first concerts that I saw at the fair.
