Random Questions @ Friday Fives!

(Need I say more?)

Actually, yes - I do need to say more.  Because it's time for some random Q&A, by Beth McC!

Something you're OCD about:
Making sure the door is locked when I leave the apartment!  Before I walk away from my apartment, I check the knob several times.  I'm not at the point where I actually need to count how many times i attempt to twist the knob and check if it's secure, but I'm getting there! It really makes going somewhere a major pain in the arse - seriously, if i could get over this, I would be out the door and in my car at least 2 minutes faster.

Your favorite quote:
Grandpa Lou Holtz all the way! "Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you respond to it." I blogged about it here!

What is the farthest you've been from home?
I have yet to venture across the big blue sea, so Las Vegas it is!  I went on my honeymoon a few years ago. I was far from "home" physically, but I felt at home there - such an amazing place! No matter who you are, you feel like a rock star.  Amazing!

Do you do a real or fake Christmas tree?
Fake for now - and probably forever.  I have way too many ornaments to mess with trying to find a real tree with enough tips.  Several of my ornaments are extremely heavy.  Ornaments, ornaments, ornaments.  I am a Christmas nut!  As it gets closer to tissing the season, you will learn more about my Christmas decoration obsession! (Each year, I put my fake tree up the first weekend of November - a birthday present to myself!)

First blog you ever read?
Crazy Shenanigans!  Jennifer's blog was my inspiration, my reason for starting a life in blog land.  She and I both graduated from Marshall University in 2006 with degrees in criminal justice, so I knew her before well before I began blogging.  She kind of held my hand, told me it would be OK, and helped me set up the whole she-bang. 
Jmo blogs about her traveling adventures, good times with friends, movies and books, and the totally random crazy things that tend to occur in her life.  Be sure to visit Crazy Shenanigans as you leave! (And thanks, Jennifer!)

Visit Beth @ Just Me and My Life to play along with her weekly Friday 5's!
Have a great Friday, friends!

OK well know you are not alone with the door thing! I cant even imagine how many times I check mine at night to make sure they are locked before I go to bed!! Love all your answers! Thanks for doing the fives!

Have a great weekend!

I know exactly what you mean about real tree vs. fake. We always get a real one for the "family" room but all the others are fake. We usually end up with a frasier fur because the branches are sturdy.

Yay!! I'm so glad that you decided blogging!!

I love fake trees because they don't put needles all over the floor and you don't have to dispose of it. Real trees look better though.


Rebekah said...

I check my doors too! I'm so paranoid that I didn't lock it when leaving the house.

I love Christmas but I love having a real tree, boyfriends family has a tree farm so we get to cut one down and get a good pick each year :)

Aimee said...

I love Crazy Shennaigans blog. Thats cool how you know her.

Oh boy we dont evem lock our door. We live on the top floor of a 100% secure (difficult to break into) condo complex in the very corner so really not worried about locking it. Also our door knob might fall off soon. Your OCD would have a field day at my place

I love christmas biut I like the food, baking, and smells. I hate decorating. I know im bad. I cant wait to see all your decorations later this year

I love that quote too! I actually just read it for the first time last week. It was on a handout for one of my beginning of year staff development sessions! There was a bunch of quotes on the page and we had to pick one that meant something to us. I totally picked that one.

Faith said...

i am like that with locking the doors too! it is almost insane, lol. we haven't done a real Christmas tree yet ... and that might always be the way it is ... we'll see this year! :)
