Green Peppers and Volkswagens

I'm with just about everyone else I know . . . I'm SO glad it's the weekend! With one exception: we woke up to 5 inches of snow . . . AGAIN!!! I want to hunt down Punxsutawney Phil and strangle the little varmint. I think he lied!!

Here's this week's Five Question Friday, and once again Mama M has used one of my questions (did I really submit this many?? haha). Link on up and join in. I love going through the entries and reading what others answer. At times it let's me know I'm not so CrAZy!

1. Can you drive a stick shift?

I certainly can. The very first car I drove when I was 13, out on the country roads (as if that makes it ok!), was a 1963 Volkswagen Beetle. Then when I finally got my permit, we had an old brown pickup with "3 on the tree" and I learned to drive stick. I didn't realize there was any other option. Now days, it seems like it's a rare thing if someone knows how to drive a stick. I LOVE driving a stick . . . you c…

Speedy Gonzalez Five Question Friday

Yikes . . . I forgot to do my blog last night, so here is my 5QF . . . speedy version. And Mama M used one of my questions AGAIN! Woo hoo!! Thanks, Mama.

1. Have you worn the same outfit more than one day in a row?

Yes . . . yes, I have. I used to think this was the most disgusting thing in the world. And my brothers and I would always laugh when my mom would do this very thing. However . . . the older I get the more often I do. BUT . . . I ONLY do this on weekends. I would NEVER . . . EVER . . .

. . . EVER do this during my work week!

2. If you had to choose any LARGE city to live in, which would it be?

I've lived in Washington, D.C., Sacramento, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, and Madrid, Spain. I love them all . . . for a while. I grew up in a small town and I'm a country girl at heart. But this is a no brainer for me . . . I grew up in the Pacific Northwest. Duh! Seattle would be my city, hands down. I've lived in the desert for more almost 30 years and …

The things we do . . .

Woo Hoo! Mama M's Five Question Friday has one of my submitted questions. Thank you, Mama!

That's a HUGE thank you to Mama M since it's been a tough couple of weeks for her family after a tragedy hit them. If you're a praying sort of person, they could benefit from them. I know they have mine.

If you'd like to join in, I'd love to read your answers. Just comment or hook on up with the linky.

And here we go . . .

1. Would you rather be on ABC's Extreme Home MakeOver or TLC's What not to Wear?

Easy choice here. I already know how to dress and look F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!! Thanks to Carol Tuttle and her "Dressing Your Truth" and "Energy Profiling" systems. Check it out.

The only problem with Extreme Home Makeover is this . . .


His screaming drives me NUTS!!

I liked him SO much better when he was on Trading Spaces with cute little Paige Page.


He wasn't so . . . IN YOUR FACE obnoxious!

2. Do you have any tattoos?

Well . . . yes and no. I would …
