Five on Friday





So I was tagged a couple of weeks ago by Southern Fried Mom , but I had just done a tag. A lot of chasing around that week! So here goes and sorry so late Southern Mom...


5 things on my to-do list:


1- Go to the grocery store.


2- Finish researching about life insurance so I can get moving on a new policy. Once I stopped working outside the home I lost my life insurance coverage.


3- Keep the minis happy since mini#1 is out of school today for teacher work day. We're going to Build-A-Bear. Mini#1 got a gift card for his birthday. He's been begging to go!


4- Stop by post office for stamps.


5- Buy Mother's Day presents. Do you ladies also end up buying for your mother-in-laws? I do.


5 snacks I enjoy:


1- Brie cheese and reduced fat Triskits.


2- Any form of chocolate. Well except white.


3- Olives


4- Popcorn- movie popcorn is my favorite, but it's usually a bag of 53,000 light butter BOY SCOUT popcorn Mr. Pink suckered us into.


5- Hummus and pita chips.


5 things I'd do if I were a billionaire:


1- Pay off this house.


2- Travel.


3- Buy a beach house.


4- Go Shopping for days....in Paris.


5- Travel some more.


Note: I'd also give to charities, resolve world hunger and demand world peace, but I'm not in a pageant so the first 5 answers will work for now.


5 bad habits:


1- My purse is a disaster. Can't seem to have a "clean" purse.


2- My closet (my side anyway) is much like my purse.


3- Worry too much about things I can't control.


4- Bit of a control freak. Funny I listed this after #3.


5- I used to always be on time, but lately, this seems harder to achieve...usually when it involves the minis going with me. Is it just me or do others seem to get in the car and have to run back in the house a million times before you actually leave your driveway?


5 places I've lived:


1- Charlotte, NC


2- Raleigh, NC


3- Smyrna, GA


4- Close to Raleigh, NC


5- no other places.

5 jobs I've had:


1- Gift wrapper at Belk's department store while in high school.


2- Customer Service Agent at an insurance company one summer while in college.


3- Receptionist at a women's breast health center. It was a temp job while in college. Sad and rewarding to see all the women fighting breast cancer.


4-Manager for ocean transportation, mainly imports to US.


5- Stay at home mom.

Adding this one. 5 favorite places I've visited:

1- San Francisco, CA

2- New York City, NY

3- Paris, France (Duh! My most favorite!)

4- New Orleans, LA (Just don't go in July. BOILING HOT!)

5- London, England (and Bath, England, quaint!)

Happy Friday! I tag anyone who wants to play along.

I LOVE hummus and pita chips. Also, olives. Any kind.
The Mother-in-law? My husband would never think to send his Mom something. They're not that close. In fact, I haven't spoken to her in months. But I handle holidays. So I'll probably just send flowers.
