TGIF and Five Questions

Happy Friday!!  TGIF!!

I have - for the most part - been horizontal on the couch or in bed for the past two days with sinus pressure, headaches, dizziness and sheer exhaustion.  I don't think it's a full-blown sinus infection (hoping it's not anyway) but I haven't felt well enough to go to school or work.  Because my days have consisted of the Today Show and reruns of The Secret Life of the American Teenager (seriously, that show is a train wreck I can't turn away from) there really hasn't been much to blog about, but I was reading Melissa's blog this morning and saw that she had linked up to My Little Life's Five Question Friday.  The questions were fun so I thought I would link up, too - it gives me something fun to think about and lets you all learn about me in the meantime.  Here we go ...

1. Would you ever vacation alone?
Hmm ... this is a really good question.  I've never done it, but I think I would enjoy it.  I definitely sight see at my own pace (sorry, Mom, I know we were in Barcelona and that was a wonderful opportunity, but I just don't understand Picasso's artwork) so I think I would enjoy being able to wander at my own pace, stop to take pictures of something no one else would think to take a picture of and to just sit and take it all in.  Lucky for me, Bruce and I travel really well together.  Our paces are similar and we don't mind going in separate directions if one of us wants to see something that the other doesn't.  I think I would be good at taking day trips by myself, but eventually would get lonely and need someone else around!!

My mom and me at the Vatican during the aforementioned European "I don't understand Picasso and want to go to lunch" vacation.

2. Do you go the speed limit?
I am MUCH better than I used to be (when you have to ask your parents for a check because you have to pay a $150 speeding ticket at the age of 16 you learn to lay off the gas a little bit) but I tend to drive 5-10 mph over the speed limit.  That being said - I live in Atlanta.  I get stuck in traffic a LOT.  More often than not I'm driving at a stop-and-go crawl pace.

3. Why did you start blogging / following blogs?
I starting my blog because I live 1,000 miles away from my family, church and ordination committee.  I wanted to give them a window into our lives down here.  I didn't really realize all that blogging was at the time - but love the fact that I can connect with people all over the country/world - I love keeping up with old friends and hearing about other people's lives and faith. I get inspiration from them for projects around my apartment, find tons of recipes and learn different photography techniques.  I am constantly learning so thank you to everyone who helps along the way!!

4. Where do you shop for yourself?
Any place where I can find inexpensive cute clothes that will last awhile.  Target, Kohls, Charlotte Russe, H&M, Old Navy and TJ Maxx.  I love the Hunger Site for cute jewelry (and the money goes to a great cause!!) and I really love shopping in the closets of my friends and cousins :) - hand me downs ROCK!!

5. What was the song that you dance your first dance with your spouse to at your wedding?
We danced to Etta Jame's At Last.  We were married the year President Obama was inaugurated and when we were watching the Inauguration Balls that night and saw him and the First Lady dancing to At Last, Bruce said, "Hey, if it's good enough for the president, it's good enough for us" - and it was settled.

Amazing day.

Thanks for stopping by - hopefully I'm feeling better by mid-weekend - there is only so much bad TV a girl can watch!!


  1. oh i love that pictures!

    i love your veil!

    and i love the song AT LAST. We had a girl sing that as we were walking down the aisle (after getting married - what is that called? The recessional??? LOL.)

  2. Love your choice of song! At last is wonderful!

  3. I totaly feel you on the sinus infection thins. I have had mine for over a month and have been on two antibiotics. Hope yours goes away soon.

  4. Hey Lady!
    Miss leaving you comments. I do so much reading on my phone now, but I don't comment because it's hard to write a lot on a tiny phone :o) But at least I'm staying caught up, right???

    Loved this post. I love learning about people. My sis in law walked down the aisle to "At Last" at their wedding in 2008. Such a beautiful song.

    Hope you're better!
