1. What's the oldest piece of clothing in your closet?

Hmmm, I guess I would have to go with a sweater that I crocheted in high school for 4-H.  I never wear it and keep it for sentimental reasons.  I was just thinking about it when Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous posted a tutorial about making a sweater pillow.  In my guest room closet I have about 4 western shirts that I sewed in high school that I never wear now, but also hold sentimental value because I made them and wore them during that phase of my life.

2. How many random blog readers have you met?

I'm not sure what classifies as "met", like in real life face-to-face?  If so only one of my readers, Brandi, who I met and became friends with a long time ago back in college before I became a blogger.  I have a few blog readers on Facebook, some of them I became acquainted with through the WebMD parenting and pregnancy boards.   I haven't met them in person, but in some cases I feel like I know them better than my real life face-to-face friends.

One of my nieces and a cousin have checked in on my blog a time or two as well and I of course have seen them face-to-face.  Come to think of it, I think my sisters have checked in a time or two, although they have never left a comment.

I guess you never really know who all visits your blog if they don't leave comments, so who knows if there is anyone else that I have met.

3. Do you let your kids stay up till midnight on New Years Eve? (Or, if you don't have kiddos yet, did you get to stay up until midnight as a child?)

Austin is only two, so no he hasn't stayed up until midnight on New Years Eve.  Last year we put him to bed at regular time and then we played board games and had a fun evening just the two of us at home.  We are going to my brothers house who has three older kids this year, so I don't know if Austin will feel compelled to stay up with them, or most likely I think he will get tired and want to go to sleep, maybe just a little later than usual.  

4. What are the gas prices where you live?


5. What is one resolution that you know you should do but are too afraid to try?

I'm not a big resolution person.  I figure I always know what I should strive to be doing to make myself a better person and don't need one day on the calendar to inspire me.  I can't really think of anything at the moment that I am afraid to try, I am a pretty daring person and not afraid to challenge myself.


  1. I agree with the now resolutions - I try not to make promises that I may have a hard time keeping!

  2. I don't do resolutions either for the same reason.

    We are planning to play board games tomorrow... don't know how many of the kids will make it until midnight. Probably just my oldest, but it should be fun. :)

    Hope you and your family have a happy and blessed 2012!

  3. I'm looking forward to a night of board games for New Year's, this year. We keep thinking we'll get together with people, but then we just decide we'd rather stay in! :) Enjoying your blog!

  4. All those sentimental things we hold onto, that nobody else understands. One day, after we're gone, our kids are going to go through our stuff, and think "Really, Mom, really?" Haha.

  5. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a message! Wishing you a fun time at your brothers tomorrow and HAPPY NEW YEAR!


  6. Love your answer to #5.

    And I like the idea of turning the sweater into a pillow. I had a pillowcase my grandmother had made for me. She'd needlepointed (is that a word??) my name and some flowers on it. It was beginning to fall apart and I didn't want anyone touching it. My mother in law made it into a tiny pillow and it's beautiful.

  7. Board games sounds like a fun way to spend New Year's Eve!! Last year we played charades with some friends on NYE and that was a lot of fun too! I didn't you and Brandi knew each other in college.. that's cool!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
