Five Question Friday!

1. What were your school colors?

Are we talking about high school or college?  My high school colors were green and white--the Mustangs.  And my college colors are the best in the world...Carolina Blue and White...Go Tarheels!!

2. What's the best compliment you ever received?

The best compliments I get are from my husband, letting me know that I am a good mom and wife. :)  Even though he does complain that I could do better sometimes, he lets me know that what I am doing is good work!

And if I had to think of something more specific, it would be from my first year of teaching.  I had never had a teaching class, but was thrown to the wolves two weeks into the school year.  I was 22, teaching 15-19 year olds.  I had never created a lesson plan...and my classes were an hour and a half long.  Usually the lessons ended before class was really over, and my students were free to talk and be CRAZY!  And crazy they were.  But when I started getting the hang of it, and planning well-thought-out lessons, one of my students came up to me after class.  His name was Sean.  He said, "Mrs. G (before I was married), I just wanted to let you know that your lesson today was GREAT!" and he gave me a thumbs up.  That was one of the things that made my first year of teaching worth it :)

3. Do you buy cheap or expensive toilet paper?

I gotta go with the expensive.  Gotta have the best :)  I can't stand the cheap stuff.  My husband will buy the cheap stuff for himself and get the expensive stuff for me...I'm really not that high maintenance...but some of you understand...right?

4. Have you ever had a surprise party thrown for you? Or have you had one for someone else?

I have helped throw a surprise party for my older sister, and I threw one for my best friend in high school.  The one for my friend was crazy because she thought that everyone was talking about her behind her back...and it really bothered her.  At least we had a good reason to explain it when it was all said and done :)

5. What is one material possession that you "can't live without"?

That would probably be my laptop! Can't live without my MAC!


Hope everyone has a great weekend! I have a busy week coming up, but I will try to stay in touch with the blog world as best I can.  If you have time, check out my new etsy shop!

Compliments about being a good mom are the best.

I loved my Mac, but then it had an unfortunate accidnent that involved a bath tub. I'm having trouble living without it!

Emily said...

I completely understand about the toilet paper! When we stay with my parents we always take our own cause they use the cheap stuff! :-D

Stacey said...

I understand about the toilet paper too. We work too hard to not have something nice and soft to wipe our butts with. The few extra dollars are worth it.
