5QF: Spring has Sprung

 Time for a little bit of Five Question Friday y'all! Today is the unofficial first day of Spring Break for us in this county. The school board actually planned a teacher workday the Friday before Spring Break week starts. So we're starting today by having Little E miss today since his VPK does not follow school teacher workdays. I don't have much fun stuff planned for the kids today tho, since the hubs is working. Miss K and I are planning on pedicures though. Maybe Little E can stand it long enough while watching the iPad. Let's hope so!
Now for some questions and answers.

1. Will you run to the store or to pick up a kid looking a mess? I would run to the store looking like a hot mess, for sure. Been there, done that. I'm less likely to run into some one at the local grocery store wearing my cotton bed shorts, tee shirt and no make up. Have you met me? I rarely, if ever leave the house without makeup and fresh deodorant on. But I have on occasion, had to make that run, looking like I just crawled off the couch.

2. Do you finish a book if it's boring or you don't like it? Not usually. Which explains the shelves of books with bookmarks hanging out of them. I can't bear to part with them either. I know, I feel like a hoarder too.

3. Beach or mountain vacations? Seriously?? Is this a trick question.? Living only 30 minutes from the nearest beach you would think I wouldn't like a beach vacation. But this I cannot choose one over the other. If you know me well enough and have read my blog for any length of time, you will know that I LOVE the Rocky Mountains and can't wait to head back. I kid you not, I left a part of my heart in those mountains and I plan on going back. So until then, the beach vacations will have to satisfy me and the family. I love sitting by the pool, which is adjacent to the ocean watching my kids enjoy the sunshine.

4. What thing/event says "winter will end and spring is right around the corner" to you? Bike Week in Daytona Beach. Many of you do not know, but my parents own a motorcycle shop. They have owned it for over 27 years and I have worked for them since 1999. Hearing the roar of motorcycles, driving down the highway all day, reminds me that the hot, sticky weather is back. Note: I do not ride a motorcycle, never have, probably never will. It's not that I wouldn't like to, just too many idiots on the road in cars that prevents me from getting on a bike.
5. Would you prefer couples or family vacation? Couples, as in my husband, myself and other couples? Then I would say no. I like my space. I enjoy my friends immensely, but not enough to vacation with them without the kids. I look forward to family vacations. I never got to experience many of them myself while growing up, which makes them that more important for my kids.

I agree, the Rockies are beautiful.  I think anyone who likes photography would probably like mountains because they're so picturesque!  I love the Alps too.  But the beach is also relaxing.  I'm just not much of a water person...  I like staying on the beach.  In the water I'm always on the lookout for sharks! =)

I agree with number 5 100%, we didn't take many vacations growing up so I love vacationing with my kiddos.

Have a lovley weekend!

Two weeks til Spring Break here. We, too, have  a teacher work day the Friday before.  But, I'm playing hookey and heading your way next weekend to see my daddy.

Oh, man!  The two of us would make a good team.  In question #1, I answered that I can't bear NOT to finish a book once I start, and you said you can't bear to part with it.  I'm thinking... You teach me how to quit reading bad, bad books, and I'll help you send 'em along when we're done not being done with them.  Deal?  =)

The beach is relaxing as long as some one else is with you to help watch the kids. :)

Thank you!

Oh if only you weren't "secretive" about who you were. Have fun coming into my neck of the woods!

Sounds like a good idea. :) You have to step away from the book, just step away from the book. It's easy. Now I have to learn to stop being a "hoarder". lol.
