1. Did you have a favorite blanket or toy as a kid? If so, do you still have it?
I don't really think that I had anything that I was totally attached to, my mom might have something different to say about that! ha!
2. Do you dream in color?
Yes! Most of the time I have very vivid dreams-in color- that I remember. Doesn't that mean something when you remember your dreams?
3. How tall are you? Do you wish you were shorter or taller?
I'm 5'3", I might a an inch or two if I could, but 5'3" isn't too bad.
4. If you could have anyone's (celeb or other) voice as the guide on your GPS, who would it be?
OMG, I would totally have Nicole Kidman with her Australian accent. I heart her!
5. Do you return your shopping cart to the corral or leave it wherever in the parking lot?
I always return the cart to it's home in the corral. I hate when people leave carts resting on other people's cars. That is so rude!
Have a great weekend!

1. What were your school colors?
My school colors were Green & Gold. I never thought they were very flattering, but what school colors are, right?
2. What's the best compliment you ever received?
The best compliment that I have ever received was from a friend who told me that I was the sweetest person that she knew. I really try to be nice to everyone, and to hear that was very special.
3. Do you buy cheap or expensive toilet paper?
I try not to splurge too much, but when it comes to toilet paper, you just can't put a $ amount on that. ha!
4. Have you ever had a surprise party thrown for you? Or have you had one for someone else?
I have never had one thrown for me, but I have been to a few. It was fun to try and keep it a secret from the person that we were throwing it for!
5. What is one material possession that you "can't live without"?
Oh my gosh, do I really have to pick just one? I love all of my material possessions, as much as I would love to be the kind of girl that could live off the land, I am just not! I think that it would be a toss us between my big Coach bag or my Nike Shox. I love Shox, that is the only tennis shoe that has graced my foot for years. I don't know what i would do without my shox!
Well now you know five more facts about me! Have a great weekend!

Cheesecake Pancakes! Like pancakes weren't bad enough by themselves, they add cream cheese to them. Or what about this baby? The sandwich with fried pieces of chicken as the bread? Holy cow!
Don't get me wrong, I'm not hating on anyone at all. I love cheesecake pancakes just as much as the next girl. I actually ate 5 chocolate chip cookies after lunch today, shame on me, I know. But I just wish that it wasn't all so readily available! ha!

1. Do you collect anything?
Not really. I'm actually kind of opposite and throw away everything. I hate clutter.
2. Name 3 celebrities that you find good looking.
In no particular order...
3. Do you have any scars? If so, what's the story behind it (them?)?
Tons! I'm such a clutz. My best scar is from knee surgery. I torn all three major ligaments in my knee jumping on a trampoline. My scar is about 5 inches long, it's crazy! And just for grins and giggles I will throw in that about a year later I crashed my brother's dirt bike in our driveway and scarred up my other knee!
4. What is a food that you like to eat, but others might think it's gross or weird?
Ummmm....I usually eat ranch on EVERYTHING! I'm talking everything!
5. Have you ever seen a tornado in real life?
Yes, yes I have. It was scary. The end.
Have a great weekend!

I get so many compliments that I thought I would share the recipe with you! Don't you feel sooo lucky? ha! It's a really simple recipe that I got from the May 2010 Southern Living. They call it "Picnic Potato Salad". Here it is for your enjoyment:
4 lbs. Yukon Gold potatoes
3 hard cooked eggs, peeled and grated
1 cup mayonnaise (yes, it MUST be the real stuff!)
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup sour cream
1/3 cup finely chopped sweet onion
1/4 cup sweet pickle relish
1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
I have a slightly different way of cooking the potatoes than Southern Living.
I peel all the potatoes and chop them into bite size pieces. Then I cook the potatoes in boiling water for about 15-20 minutes or until tender. Then drain and cool the potatoes for 20 minutes.
Once the potatoes are warm to the touch and not hot, combine the potatoes and eggs.
Stir together the mayonnaise and next 7 ingredients; gently stir into potato mixture. I cover and let it chill overnight. Voila! Now that's good eatin'!
Sidenote: We are down to a few days left of our dog sitting days. T minus 4 days. I do love the dogs, but three weeks has been a LONG time! ha!

Not exactly what you want to see when you have people coming over for a backyard BBQ right? So we all ran around picking up all of the things that we put out so they wouldn't get wet. After we got back inside and dried off, Mom got out the carton wine. Yes, I said carton. It's really good!
It was smooth sailing after that. The sky cleared and we had a great time! I just want to send a big shout out to my mom and dad who put on the BBQ every year, it's a lot of work! Mom got these cookies at a bakery down the street, they were super cute and soooo good!
The manly men around the grill!

I really really miss my naps! I was NOT that kid who refused to take naps, I loved nap time. I took naps after school every day all the way through high school. Pathetic, I know. What can I say? This girl loves to sleep!
3. Is there a catch phrase, cliche, or word that just drives you bonkers every time you hear it?
4. What is one thing that you think symbolizes America...besides "Old Glory"?

My mom and I started a tradition to go see the Twilight movies on opening day during the first showing. I don't think that I would enjoy going to the midnight showings, so we stick with 10AM on opening day and it works out great. I am a true Twi-hard. I love the books so much that I have actually lost count as to how many times that I have read then and I still can't get enough. I am trying to convince my mom that if she would read the books, the movies would be that much better. I thought that Eclipse might be the best one yet. I really like how you get to see more of the Cullen Family story and they stay very close the to book. After the movie we ate lunch at Mi Cocina. Then we ran a few errands. I went back to my Mom's House after we were done and got to spend some time with my little baby. I was so glad to see him. I tried to bring him over to Hunter's parents the other night to stay with us and the other dogs, but he was not havin it. ha! I can't wait to get back home and in our regular routine. I forgot my camera with all of the pictures so you will have to wait to see them tomorrow.
