Five Question Friday

It's a gorgeous summer here in these parts and that leaves less time for blogging. I do have upcoming reviews and a new giveaway coming soon though, so when you need a little break from the sunshine, pop on over and see if there's anything new over here by the hearthside!  For today, we have Five Question Friday- just a little fun "get-to-know-you" meme.  If you'd like to join in, please do! Leave your answers in the comment section or a link to your blog post, and be sure to visit My Little Life (the home to Five Question Friday).  And now, for the questions...

1. What is one thing you miss the most about childhood?

Dinasour eggs.  Anyone remember those giant jawbreakers from the 80's,  you stuck 'em in the side of your cheek and sucked on 'em all day at school? Yeah...I want one.  

I also miss being able to play pretend without anyone telling you to grow up. I don't wanna. 

2. Are you still friends with your friends from high school?

I went to three different high schools, so no. I did manage to find one friend from high school on Facebook (Hi, Nancy!) but we haven't really taken the time to catch up yet. I can't imagine what it's like to grow up in one spot and know friends for years and years.  It's a foreign concept. An appealing one, but completely foreign.

3. Is there a catch phrase, cliche, or word that just drives you bonkers every time you hear it?

The first one that comes to mind is "everything happens for a reason".  While I believe that to be a somewhat true statement, it is usually used in the worst of situations at the worst of times and should just be struck from our vocabulary.  When someone's hurting, they don't want to hear this- truth or no.  

4. What is one thing that you think symbolizes America...besides "Old Glory"?


Freedom to express ourselves as who we are- and I am afraid we are losing this quickly. Our "Founding Fathers" bled for our right to be free and to have freedom OF religion not freedom FROM religion.  And I'm not just talking Christianity (although that has become the politically correct "religion" to disparage and attack).  America to me is a free country-  I am free to worship God and share my belief in Jesus Christ and you are free to worship the mailbox at the end of your driveway if you really want to.  I am free to share my faith with you and you are free to choose whether or not you want to listen, and vice versa. I may believe that trusting in Christ is the most vital decision a person can make- but I also believe you have the freedom to reject that.  This freedom of "religious" expression is synonymous with America to me and the aspect I fear losing more than anything else.  I'm with New Hampshire- "Live Free Or Die".


5. What are your 4th of July weekend plans?

Gaming with friends, a Mad Hatter Tea Party for my 10 year old daughter, singing at church, BBQing with friends and splashing in the pool, crashing on Monday.
