FQF: I'm a strange girl

I love this weekend! Tonight we are going to Greenville to have dinner with my BFF and to do a little shopping. We are staying there for the night and then in the am we are hitting the road to Helen, Georgia to visit Justin's grandparents! I'm so excited to see them again and also thrilled that Madi is going to get to meet her great-grandparents for the first time! I'll be sure to post lots of fun pics from the trip.

This week's Five Question Friday questions are kinda deep! At least, for me. So here we go! 

1. Have you ever testified in court? For what?
Boring answer - nope.

2. Do you still have your wedding dress?
Ay yi yi. 

This is a sensitive subject for me. We did not have a wedding and I did not have a wedding dress. But, I will elaborate on this later. Husband and I are thinking of rectifying this within the near future.

3. Is there a special place you like to go when you're happy, sad, stressed, etc.?
Okay. If I tell you, you have to promise not to laugh. Promise?

I haven't done this in a while - well like a few weeks, but when I get *really* stressed/frustrated/upset I like to go sit in a dark closet. Okay please don't leave. Ha. It's weird yes, but there is something I find comforting about being in very small, dark spaces when I'm upset. It calms me down. 

This is really confusing to me though because I'm usually very scared of the dark! I'm a strange girl I guess.

4. If you have kids, do they sleep with you? If you don't have kids...will you let your kids sleep with you when/if you have them?
Yes, Madi does still sleep in our bed. I know, I know - that bed we bought her was supposed to do the trick. FAIL. Truth is, I do not mind her sleeping in our bed. I kind of like it when she's not kicking and slapping me in her sleep because it makes me feel like I get to spend more time with her, even if we are asleep. 

For those of you who don't have kids yet and say you won't let your kids sleep in your bed - you'll change your mind when they are screaming their heads off in the middle of the night and all you want is to go back to bed. Oh, you'll cave. We all do. :) 

5. Do you watch late night TV?
I watch TV late at night. Does that count? 

I don't want like Conan or Jay Leno or anything like that. I usually have the TV on HGTV or Food Network simply for the noise while I'm on the computer or something. I always have to be multi-tasking.

If you stuck around through this one - congrats! Glad I didn't scare you off! 

Happy Weekend! :)

I read this - while eating breakfast! Smorz cereal, to be exact! :)

We want to do the vow renewal thing, too! We had a wedding, but only 15 people and I didn't have time to get a dress (our fault, I know). I don't care, but it really bothers him! Sounds like a good excuse to party, though :)

I hope you guys do go through with the vow renewal. Can't wait to hear more. And, no you are not a strange girl! Everyone has their own ways of doing things. :)

I sit in closets when I'm upset too... my husband has come home a couple times and had to search for me because I'm in a closet. It is very comforting.. It makes me feel safe. So you aren't alone in that regard!

I just may try sitting in a closet the next time I get upset. Now that you mention it, it sounds like a comforting thing to do.

Meredith said...

That is a great idea to sit in the closet, hmm, too bad my closet doesn't have a door :(
I use to love sleeping with my Momma even when I was in middle school and sick I'd go sleep with her and kick my daddy out hahaha

Christina said...

Hello from your newest follower! Loved reading your post, can't wait to read more! :) Would appreciate you following me back lol.

About the wedding dress thing, I know how you feel. My husband and I got married at the tax counter last year lol. No dress, no ceremony. This year however, we are having our real wedding because we can finally afford to. Yay! :) I would totally reccommend you getting remarried or something with a real ceremony. Its totally worth it! :)

Have a wonderful weekend with your family! My family plans on spending ours outdoors as much as possible! Love springtime and the SUNSHINE!!! :D
