Five Question Friday

So, the rules? Copy and paste the five questions below to your blog post, answer them, grab the MckLinky Blog Hop code and link up! I'd also love it if you'd link back to My Little Life...not a requirement, just a request!

And, we're off!!

1. What is your favorite Holiday and why?
Christmas. Period. Fat and jolly is "in" and scrooginess is "out". It's one of the only holidays that is celebrated for more than one day with traditions. (4 whole months if you are a retail store) It's the celebration of the birthday of Jesus, cookie baking, present wrapping, anticipation in children's eyes (and mine too) of the wonderment of the tree and stockings, looking at everyone else's outdoor lights (when else can you do drive-bys slowly in front of your neighbor's houses and not have the cops called) the only thing missing from our Christmas traditions is having the drunk uncle to make fun of for the other 364 days for somehow setting the turkey on fire.

2. Who has been the most influential person in your life?
My children (well, that's two, almost three) have taught me more about life. They have taught me the importance of patience, the incomprehensible amount of love, the joy in simple things and how to cover yourself with glitter glue and cotton balls.

3. If you could give up one household chore forever, what would it be?
Laundry and all it entails. I have a post here about how I really feel about it.

4. What is the BEST practical joke you have ever been a part of, on the giving OR receiving end? (Thanks to Meghan, for that one!!)
I am not naming names, dates or locations (to protect my butt) but there was this time that a neighbor's doors got nailed shut (momentarily) when she refused to quit slamming them in an apartment complex.

5. Where (or how) did you meet your spouse?
I met my spouse at a Shoney's. He was cooking, I was hungry. He gave me a whole strawberry pie to take home and promised one day he would marry me. Almost 4 years later, he did just that.

Strawberry sweet. I was fortunate enough to marry a man that makes a mean cheesecake. :)
And they say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach...looks like it works both ways huh? ;)
