Five Question Friday

I want to bring back Five Question Friday. This might be hard because the blogger that started it, has stopped doing it since 2013. But I’m working on scouring the internet for questions and hope to continue it regularly here. Basically how it works is answering 5 simple questions, either below in the comments, or in your own blog post. Simple. Its a fun way to post on a Friday, and get to know each other more. I’ve answered these questions before, but since its been awhile, I figured why not do it again for my new followers 🙂

1. What is one thing you have too many of in your house?
SHOES! even ones that don’t fit anymore (I swear your feet grow when you are pregnant).

2. Did anything go not quite as planned on your wedding day?
YES! Well we got married in the Bahamas. The weather had been amazing the days leading up to the wedding. Then the night before was a complete downpour and it was still raining up until about 1 1/2 hours before the ceremony started, which was outside on the beach. I had to be careful to avoid a few puddles, but otherwise the weather held off and it was beautiful outside. I did have a total hair disaster as soon as the stylist left. But they were able to track him down and he fixed it, outside, right before I went down the aisle. Then just after the ceremony and before pictures, we did a champagne toast and were given chocolate covered strawberries, one of which rolled right off my plate and down the front of my dress, and since it was hot and humid, the chocolate had melted. Luckily most of it landed on the bottom of my dress so it wasn’t too noticeable in the pictures. Then we changed our clothes and got a quick bite to eat, where a whole plate of spaghetti ended up all down the front of that dress LOL. We then went on a dinner cruise which was very romantic, and got to see several celebrities homes on a different island. But our taxi company never came back to pick us up. We sat outside for an hour waiting for a new ride, and ended up covered in mosquito bites. It was definitely a memorable day and we had a lot of laughs about it.

3. What is your favorite summer smoothie recipe?
I used to love kale, cucumber, mango and strawberry, with coconut water. But i really don’t drink smoothies any more.

4. What is the weather like where you are?
today is supposed to be 88. so hot and sunny.

5. What is your favorite books to read to your kids?
Any book! my baby loves looking at books and babbling words and pointing at this pictures. So any sturdy board book he can’t destroy, that is full of vibrant pictures is my favorite. He has a couple of favorites he looks for every time we read, most of which have pop-ups or touch and feel pages. It’s so fun watching him try to read.
