5 Question Friday

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 9:14 am

Pulling from the My Little Life blog that I like to visit, it is once again, 5 Question Friday.

This weeks questions are all about Thanksgiving.

1. What is your favorite part of a Thanksgiving meal?
The mashed potatoes.  I’m such a ridiculous fan of anything that is made with potatoes.  I love them so much.  I love them with butter or with gravy or even plain.  I love them.  I love them.  I love them.

2. Are you a host or a guest for Thanksgiving this year?
We were guests at my parents house this year.  We alternate holidays with my parents and Real Man’s dad and this year, Thanksgiving was with my parents.  Very quiet, very low-key.  Very, very relaxing!

3. When you think of one Thanksgiving tradition, what comes to mind?
Food.  I know, how lame, but seriously, Thanksgiving means food to me.  Lots and lots of food.  And potatoes.

4. You have two pieces of pie in front of you and you HAVE to eat one…do you choose pumpkin or pecan?
I’ve never actually had pecan pie, so I’ll have to go with pumpkin, however, the truth is probably closer to neither.  My favorite type of pie is cherry.  So good.  Sooooooo good.

5. Are you a Black Friday Shopper?
I’ve never actually made it out on Black Friday.  The truth is that I usually have my shopping done by now.  I was going to head out today, because there are two more things that we are thinking of getting for the older monkeys for their February birthdays, but the deals aren’t that great and I don’t feel like being jostled around in the crowds.  I was reading articles this morning about people who got in the lines at 4 am and then swarmed the stores and left with shopping carts overflowing with stuff.  Kinda made me think about over-saturating kids at the holidays and wondering just how much “stuff” do kids need, anyway?  Helped me to make my decision to stay home.
So, that’s this week’s 5 Question Friday.  If you have your own blog, feel free to use the questions on your own blog today!

  1. I especially liked your response to #5…I just said to David that I must be  the Grinch bc I can think of NOTHING my kid will EVER need that will make me stand in line on ANY day for 4 hours…ok maybe like concert tickets if it was someone I wanted to see too! ;0) but u get my drift. I jus think the whole black Friday frenzy is a symptom of a colossal systemic problem we have with over consumption, over spending, and materialism. See I’m totally The Grinch I know. This year Skylar is getting a few new surprises (small thomas train set, some art supplies, and a few new books. ThenI have two old school ones (star wars figures and a cradle) that I had as a kid that I saved for her. She won’t know they aren’t new and the budget can be reasonable.
