Five on Friday

Here are a few facts about me this Friday. I don't know if I could ever do one of the "100 things about me lists" I've seen on other blogs. I'll just spread them out from time to time.

1- I like to buy cookbooks from different cities I visit. It's a fun way to remember the trip, the cuisine and the sites we saw.

2- I almost became an international flight attendant in my senior year of college. Interviewed in Dallas and D.C. with two airlines. Finished college instead. Too chicken to take the plunge. Oops. Poor choice of words given the occupation I considered.

3- I become demon possessed when taking the minis to get photos taken or when trying to get "the" picture for the Christmas cards. Everything has to be perfect- hair, smiles, clothes. I even take their clothes to change into upon arrival to avoid wrinkles in the car. My blood pressure is sky high until all photos are complete! I'm not too nice and the minis completely see through my fake, calm, pleading voice. "Now so-and-so sit up straight, sweetie." I can't be the only one like this can I?

4- I'm left- handed. Only one in my immediate and extended family.

5- In college, pre 9/11, I once rode in the cockpit of an airplane. I was right behind the pilots! Awesome experience. It was a Friday night during my freshman year. I was going home (hour flight), plane was full and I was traveling standby. At the last minute, I was pulled out of my first class standby seat for a paying customer. The crew knew there were no more flights that night so they let me ride up front. I was a freshman and had no idea what "jump seat" even meant. Today, this would not be an option!

Cheers Mothers! We made it through another week! Have a great weekend! If you've been reading for a while, leave a comment. Tell me about yourself. I need some new blogs to visit!

I was laughing at your description of the photo session for Xmas cards. I totally gave up this year and used a candid of the kids in their *gasp* pajamas! It was nearly impossible to get them dressed and get them to both smile on cue at the same time.

Today is the beginning of our spring break so we're just hanging out. Hope you have a great weekend!

momx2 - yes,why does it take sooo many shots to get one "decent" shot with both kids smiling? Our spring break starts today, too. No big plans. Have a fun week!

Laura, good- another with boys! Glad you stopped by. We had a cat and a bird, but both were boys, too! Oh well, as the only female, more shoes I can buy for myself!
