5 Question Friday ~ 7/20/12

Time for another 5 Question Friday!!!  Hope you enjoy!!!

1) What do you call them-flip flops, sandals, thongs or slippers? Flip-flops (or chancletas in spanish)

2) Are you a "my kids can do no wrong" kind of mom or a "Johnny punched you? Well what did you do to him first?!" kind of mom? I'm in between here, there are times that I know my kids do no wrong - I just don't blind myself or look the other way when I know they did something wrong.  I admit when my kids have done something or acted in a way that is unacceptable, and they pay the price for it, but on the other hand I also see when things happen that may not have been caused by them. Guess I can be a little bit of both!

3) Would you confront a good friend that looked/looks down on your husband/significant other?  I would have in the past but not anymore :( sad to say but friends aren't what they used to be-at least not any of the ones I know!  These days, I just ignore things and don't let it get to me-I spend very little time with "friends" anyway-my kids & wonderful hubby keep me too busy! Its not worth the time to argue with someone about your views/opinions because they will rarely agree-just agree to disagree & move on!  If said person makes my husband feel down then time to cut loose the friend-nothing comes in between my marriage :)

4) Biggest pet peeve? People who spend their lives talking/criticizing others but fail to look at themselves in the mirror.

5)What's your favorite take out meal? Pizza (hungry just thinking about it)



  1. Hope you have a great day also. I agree friends are not what they use to be :-(

  2. Stopping's my first Five Question Friday!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, hope you enjoy 5QFridays!

  3. That is a great pet peeve! & sadly so many do criticize others yet fail to see that they are not perfect either & never will be!Sadly we all have flaws in one way or another, some just worse then others! Have a great weekend!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
