Finally Friday!

I just had to participate in Friday Follow and Follow Me Friday this week.


Especially because I have been at 199 followers for 24 hours and it is driving me crazy.

I honestly never thought I would have this many people following along with my life when I started blogging. I love it.

I also honestly don't like the idea of "collecting" followers who may or may not be following my blog only because they hope that I will follow theirs. But it's fun to connect with new readers and new blogs this way, and I am hoping that if you choose to follow, it is because you like my blog and you will come back! make sure to leave me a comment so I can visit you, too.

And now, because I haven't posted about anything except my kids in a long time... I'm going to do Five Question Friday! Click on the button below to visit Mama M and join in.

1. If you could, would you go back to high school?
YES. My friends and I talk about this often. It would be so fun to do it all over, with a better attitude about schoolwork and without the awkwardness of being a teen.

2. If a genie appeared and granted you two wishes, what would they be? (And, no saying "more wishes".)
Hmm. Why is this question so hard? I guess I would have to say enough money to never have to worry about money again, and an everlasting supply of ice cream. Or maybe I should say ice cream and a personal trainer, because I would be huge. Well I guess if I had a ton of money I could just pay for the personal trainer. But not having to work because you have so much money just seems wrong. Okay, I would wish for the most successful business in the world, and an endless supply of ice cream.

3. What kids show do you secretly like?
I love iCarly. And I think Joe does too. We leave it on even if the kids aren't watching it. And yes, our kids are 2 and 3 and for some reason love it and completely follow along the story line. I also enjoy Hannah Montana. There, I said it.

4. What is your beverage of choice?
If it didn't have so many bad things for you in it, I would drink Mountain Dew all day long. But since I know soft drinks are awful for you I try to limit my Mt. Dew addiction. I would have to say it's a tie between coffee and water.

5. What is something that you would change about yourself (or are working to change in yourself)?
I am working to change my view on my own success and potential. I spent most of my life assuming that I could never achieve big dreams, but now I realize that ANYONE can achieve whatever they put their minds to. It just takes trust, faith, patience, and a good support system.

Time to talk myself into doing laundry and of course, drink another cup of coffee :)

Have a great Friday!
