It's Friday. When this week is completely over and done with, I shall walk outside and scream at the top of my lungs "Good riddance!" Seriously. This week has been so hard. Sick baby (double ear, double eye infection). $70 eye drops for sick baby because oral meds weren't kicking the infection in his eyes. Sick mommy. Started out with just a sore throat. Turned into a full blown head/chest cold, and as of last night my ears feel as if an elephant is squishing them and they have been packed with cotton balls. I am contemplating a doctors visit today, but still scared that they'll slap me with a large bill all to tell me there's nothing they can do with me since I am with child. On a positive note, despite my ear woes, last night I was able to catch the longest stretch of sleep yet over the past 7 day period, so perhaps things are looking up. Or alteast sideways. I'd take sideways over backwards at this point. But enough of my whining. Let's get on with why you really hopped over here, which was to read my awesome answers for Mama M's 5QF.

1. What is one food you could eat everyday?
Mexican food. I swear I could drink salsa (homemade salsa, not the stuff you buy from the store), and fajitas never get old.
2. Are you working in the career you thought you would be when you were 18?
Not exactly. I mean, I knew I always wanted to be a stay at home mom, but at 18 I really thought I wouldn't get married until I was 40. So at that point I was going to college preparing to be an athletic trainer. I had high hopes of somehow making it with a major league team. Needless to say, those dreams changed when I met Drew my freshman year in college, and knew from our second date that he was "the one." I switched to a business major, graduated early, got married, spent 2 years in the corporate world before deciding me and the corporate world didn't mix quite well, spent the next 2 years after that working in the medical field in administration, and promptly left that industry 6 weeks before having Brayden.
3. What is something that you wish you would have done when you were younger and you didn't?
When I was about 14 or 15, my dad offered to give me $1000 to invest in the stock market if I would do all the research. He would help me ofcourse, but any profits I would have made from it I could keep (or half it with him, which was still a good deal!). I was stubborn, and thought my parents were not cool, so I told him to hit the road. I still hit myself for skipping that awesome opportunity.
4. What color are your kitchen walls?
They are in between red and orange. The exact color is called Teracotta. Sounds gross, but I love the color. Although I think at our next house I'll go with something a bit different. Like red, or perhaps a cool blue. I know, I know, those colors are on opposite ends of the spectrum. I'm eclectic like that I tell ya.
5. Do you remember what your very first favorite song was?
Well, considering my parents didn't allow me to listen to secular music until I was in 9th grade, this question is kind of hard. I have no idea what my first favorite Christian song was, despite the fact that's all I could listen to. But I do remember wearing my speakers out to Gangster's Paradise when I was finally allowed to listen to the "dark side" of music. And just re-reading the sentence that I listened to Gangster's Paradise enough to wear my speakers out kind of makes me chuckle. Boy did I think I was cool.
