Ok, I know it’s Saturday…but better late than never right? I often read Kirk’s cousin, Beckie’s “5 Question Friday” posts and thought I would join in this time around. So, feel free to join in, link up and do your own “5 Question Friday” if you’d like!
1. Have you ever testified in court? For what?
I’ve never testified, but I’ve had the great pleasure of having jury duty when we lived near Minneapolis. There’s nothing better than being thrown in a huge room with complete strangers waiting to have your name called for 3 days. It’s amazing how quickly you go from talking to no one to laughing and doing puzzles with someone. I did get called on day 3 to potentially be on a jury. We started the interview process for a drunk driving case only to have it dismissed the next day.
2. Do you still have your wedding dress?
Yep! It’s in a box that has been professionally sealed…I hope when I do open it one day it really is my dress in there:). It’s sitting in our basement. Kirk always thinks I should have sold it…I don’t think a dress from 1998 would really bring much now.
3. Is there a special place you like to go when you’re happy, sad, stressed, etc.?
Hmmm…when it’s nice out I really enjoy walking/jogging outside by myself. I’m kind of a baby when it comes to anything below 30 degrees though. I do often take baths with a good book.
4. If you have kids, do they sleep with you? If you don’t have kids…will you let your kids sleep with you when/if you have them?
Our beautiful children have their own beds, and we have always let them use those:). We have found that for us it is best NOT to have the kiddos in bed with us. We have dear friends who see it otherwise and I say, “To each his own”. We do let them come and hang out with us in bed in the morning, and that is fun (if it isn’t too early). We also had a phase were Ella was pretty fearful at night so we did allow her to sleep on the floor next to us.
5. Do you watch late night TV?
We don’t have any kind of decent TV reception at home so we actually don’t watch any TV at all (Except for during the Olympics and that is with Kirk having to rig up various things to make it work). We know we could get a basic service for fairly cheap, but we have found that it is helpful not to have another distraction around. It’s also kind of funny to have to explain commercials and such to our children:).
So, happy Friday a little late:).
