Five Question Friday

Guess what? Today’s my birthday! Happy birthday to me! I’m 33, which I’m going to consider 1/3 of the way to dead – living to 99 doesn’t sound so bad, so it’s completely non-morbid to think that way, I promise. My boys seem to think I’m having a party, won’t they be disappointed when this doesn’t happen? I think I’ll tell them the 4th of July parade we’re going to on Monday is a celebration for me – that’s what I used to think when I was little – all those fireworks were just for me! In actuality, we celebrated last weekend with my family (my SIL’s birthday was Sunday – happy birthday, Joan!) and at the U2 concert (technically my birthday present from the previous year). Today I’m at work and then lunch with my hubby (at a new-to-me restaurant, Marie Catribs, which I know will be delicious and helps me mark a small think off my list). Then tonight I’m going out with two sweet friends while one of their husbands watches his two boys and our two boys – bless him!

I’m hoping to make it to the farmer’s market tomorrow, church on Sunday, date night Sunday night and a parade on Monday – who knows what else we’ll do, I’m just looking forward to a long weekend! Hope everyone else has fun plans!

1. If you had the opportunity to bungee jump, would you?
I really don’t know. In theory I would, but then, it’s one of those things that if I really wanted to do it, then I think I would have sought it out by now. And strangely, I absolutely don’t want my kids to do it, though I would consider it for myself.
2. Would you rather go to the movie theater or to the drive-in?
I’ve never been to a drive-in (I know, travesty), so I guess I’ll stick with movie theater. As long as the seats are comfy and the arm rests lift up – I like holding hands with my hubby unhindered.
3. Do you have your groceries delivered?
I’m quite certain we don’t have grocery delivery in my town, but there is curbside pickup where you order online and drive up to get it but I like using coupons too much to do that. I do however belong to Amazon Mom (FREE) and get my diapers, wipes and random food items delivered. [TIP: You can get discounts for subscribing to a product (i.e., sign up for regular deliveries, which can be cancelled at any time) and it comes right to your door with no shipping.]
4. Eyebrows: Do you wax, thread, pluck, or stay au naturel?
A blend of all of those, except threading. Before an event I’ll get them waxed but in between I pluck (or forget to pluck and then have a whole lot of work when I finally think they’ve gotten out of control).
5. Would the people you went to high school with be surprised by your life today?
Maybe that I’m not a doctor because I was certain that’s what I wanted to be when I was in high school. Though when I changed my major my freshman year of college from pre-med to art (yes, really) and called and told my close high school friend, she said, “Oh, that makes sense, I knew you weren’t going to be a doctor.” Why did she not clue me in sooner? Would have saved me having to get up for my 8 a.m. biology class 4 days a week and from memorizing the Krebs Cycle to the tune of “Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing” (yes, really). Other than that, I think my life has turned out fairly normal, or close to what they would have thought.

  2. Found you through 5QF 🙂 Happy Birthday!!

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Hope your day is as fantastic as you are!!! (I know I said it on fb, but I really really meant it, so I can post it twice in two different social medias….right?!?!)

    I totally peg Jack as the kid who bungee jumps. Hopefully he’ll do what we did…go jumping first THEN call mom to let her know it happened and everyone is alright. 🙂

    A doctor? really? Interesting.

    And now thanks for that song in my head….

    • Thanks for everything and for being my friend! I will certainly appreciate a call after everyone is safe, because Jack is definitely that guy who will be the daredevil! 🙂

  5. so glad it was happy! what did you get at m.c.? i dream about the trenton. love you and glad you have a fun weekend to keep the fun going!

    • Simon had the husky varna and I had the special which was white bean soup, salad and the most delicious pesto, potato, portabello mushroom and goat cheese galette. Delicious. And chocolate chocolate cake for dessert (it was my birthday after all).

Have something to say about that? I'd love to hear from you!
