5QF--finally a blogpost this week!

Hello Blogland! I've missed you!
It's been a crazy busy week this week--swim meets, parent night for incoming Freshmen (what?! no . . that can't be right . . .), and lots of work. Which means I haven't posted since *gasp* MONDAY!! Yikes!

Luckily Mama M gives me a great excuse to post today so I'm not such a slouch!
AND . . . Happy Almost Birthday to Mama M! Her Bday is this coming TUESDAY . . . be sure to stop over and wish her a Happy Birthday on Tuesday!:

Questions for Friday, 1/29/10: (Muchos gracias to my friends, Lisa P., Liz, Megan, and Thorney London for their question suggestions! Wanna be linked in a future 5QF? Just leave me a question suggestion here, in my community! It's fun and totally not scary...I promise! Check it out!)

1. Would you ever vacation alone?

I would and I have! I used to travel for work and would take a few extra days while I was traveling to vacation. I've also done a few retreats on my own . . and I think I'd be totally fine going somewhere exotic (but full of activity) on my own--like to an all-inclusive resort. I can make friends if need be I suppose :)

That being said, I like vacationing on my own only when I have some introspective self-work to do . . .otherwise I'd MUCH rather go with friends or family. Well, friends anyway :) What I haven't ever done is gone on vacation with a love interest . . . looking forward to that first sometime in the future (probably distant future :)

2. Do you go the speed limit?

Nope . . hardly ever . . . lead foot.

3. Why did you start blogging/following blogs?
I started blogging because my bestie Mama M made me do it! Well, sort of .. . my first blog post (just a month ago!) explains it better.

4. Where do you shop for yourself?
Lane Bryant--almost the only store on the planet with fashionable and reasonably priced plus sized clothing. It's very frustrating yet strangely liberating--I don't waste a ton of time trying to find clothes--If I go to LB and they don't have it, I'm not getting it!
However, I used to LOVE August Max--they had high quality professional clothes for plus sizes . . . but they're no longer in business (sigh).

5. What was the song that you danced your first dance with your spouse to at your wedding...or...what song would you like your first dance to be to?

Not married so this is yet to come. And I have NO idea what I would want it to be--likely a song that has meaning to both me and my groom to be (yet to be named). Although . . . Unforgettable comes to mind . . .
