Finally Friday

This has been the longest, shortest week ever. I say a short week because (PRAISE THE LORD) Drew is off today. The problem is, we are having a garage sale. It's not really a problem. I think our hoarding is the problem. After nearly 7 years of marriage, all it took for us to declutter our front bedroom/office/throwallyourcrapintheroomandshutthedoor room is for us to get pregnant with child number two. And even then we've put it off till it's well over due. I mean, we're down to almost single digit weeks over here and we'll be lucky if we have a crib up by November. Ah, how things change when you already have a child. {SMILE}. Anyways, we've been "organizing" the stuff for the sale, moving things out of the house into the (now cluttered) garage, in a vein attempt to hopefully sell all of this junk to people who need junk more than us. So today, on Drew's day off, we'll be sitting in our garage holding casual conversations with complete strangers and hoping that they will buy the old vases from college and the keyboard that has a cord on it. And since Drew has that entrepreneurial spirit, he'll be selling hot dogs and sodas in hopes that the shoppers are weary and need a bite to eat. In order to put off my to-do list a little longer, I figured I'd hit the questions up for 5QF over at Mama M.'s.

1. What is the first nightmare you remember?
The first one I vividly remember I was elementary age (probably between 6 and 8 but not completely sure). I was screaming IRL from the dream (like one of those dreams where you are screaming in the dream and then wake up and you're also screaming) so loud that my dad ran in the room thinking something was TERRIBLY wrong. Thankfully IRL everything was fine; I had dreamed that my dad had been hit by a fire engine and I had witnessed the whole thing (minus the blood and gore stuff, since I didn't really have a grasp that if you get hit by a large vehicle, you typically don't look very pretty). Anyways, he died in my dream and it was traumatic to say the least. I hate nightmares, which is part of the reason I have never watched scary movies. Gives me the creeps when I watch them, and I literally can't sleep for days upon end when/if I do.
2. Even if you're not a sports fan, what's your favorite sport to play/watch?
Well, if you read my blog, you know that I am a HUGE sports fan. My favorite sport to play is softball. I played for 10 years growing up and had SO much fun. Of course, now my body aches because of it, but it was well worth it. I can't wait to teach Brayden all about baseball (although I secretly hope that he picks up football as his sport of choice, as I've always envisioned myself as a mom of a bunch of football playin' boys!)
3. If you could pull off one piece of trendy fashion, what would you want it to be (jeggings, hats, thigh high boots, etc.)?
Just plain ol' heels. I know it seems so weird for a girl to admit that, but if you've met me, you know that grace is NOT my middle name. I have been, and probably always will be, the klumsy one of the bunch. I refuse to even try to wear heels when I am pregnant-- I just envision myself somehow losing my balance and tumbling forward in fantastic fashion, and freaking everyone (including myself) out because I am huge pregnant.
4. Did you make good grades in school?
Not to toot my own horn, but yes. And I am not one of those people who can lay a hand on a book and just know EVERYTHING. I have to study HARD. Like hours upon hours, get a tutor, meet with the teacher, do extra credit, HARD. Which is why I was SO disappointed that when I graduated high school with a 4.2 GPA and had a 26 on my ACT, applied for over 60 scholarships, and did not receive a single cent of financial aid or scholarship money (well, I did get a $100 book scholarship through the National Honor Society, but $100 book scholarship barely pays for a college text book, so I consider it moot). In college, I was a bit more average in my studies (I tended to sleep through some of the boring classes like psychology), but still got out with a 3.2 GPA. I like to say I was well-rounded :)
5. What magazines do you subscribe to?
Unfortunately, most of my magazine subscriptions just expired and I didn't renew any of them. But before they expired, I was subscribed to:
Sports Illustrated, Popular Photography, Southern Living, This Old House (that was actually Drew's subscription), Conde Naste, and American Photo. I really want to renew Southern Living and Popular Photography... the others I didn't usually read them regularly, so I could probably live without them.

Well, that was fun. I guess I should get back to being productive. For those that regularly read my blog, I have to apologize for a less than stellar week of blogging over here. I really don't want to bog down your reading with meme's, but alas, when my brain is not running on all cylinders it gives me a little break and allows me to scrap what brain cells I have left back together in order to once again get back on a good blogging track. I'm hoping that Sunday night/Monday, we'll have some new pics of B. Until then, have a great weekend folks!
