Five Question Friday - The old me, the new me, and everything in between!

1. If you could, would you go back to high school?

No - never - you couldn't pay me enough!  I really hated high school...I remember my dad telling me once, when I was complaining about how much I hated it, "One day you're going to wish you could go back."  I told him, "No, I won't ever wish that," and I was right.

I was (and this comes as a shock to people who know me now) very shy in high school.  Shocking, I know...but I was.  I had a hard time because of that.  I was also...I hate to admit it...kind of a nerd.  I was a straight A student, and that coupled with my shyness...well, it was a bad combination.

Once I got to college, I was much happier - I loved it.  I felt like I really came into my own in college and started breaking out of a lot of the shyness.

2. If a genie appeared and granted you two wishes, what would they be? (And, no saying "more wishes".)

I could go with the standard "world peace" answer...but I won't. :P  Hmmm....I think the first would be that my family would always be safe, healthy, and happy.  My second would have to be that each member of our family would follow Christ whole-heartedly and would do amazing things for Him in this life, because when this life is over, nothing else matters.

3. What kids show do you secretly like?

Okay, I am not secret about this, but I love SpongeBob!  I know, a lot of parents hate the show, but I think my hubby and I have seen every episode the kids have seen.  He cracks me up!  (I have a weird sense of humor.  If you read my blog for very long you'll find that out!)

Secretly...oh I hate to even admit this...I have been known to peek into the living room to see what's going on in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.  I'm such a dork!
4. What is your beverage of choice?

If I'm being good or if I'm being bad?  If I'm being good it's diet Dr. Pepper or bottled water with Crystal Light.  If I'm being bad, it's a Coke.  And I'll take a raspberry lemonade whenever it's available.  And I'm totally addicted to coffee.  That's as strong as it gets for me!

5. What is something that you would change about yourself (or are working to change in yourself)?

Does a tummy tuck count, because I'd really like to change my flabby tummy....  No, seriously, there are lots of things I'd like to change about bably the biggest thing I would change is my lack of organization and my procrastination.  On paper, I'm a very organized person - off paper, it's another story.  A lot of that comes from the fact that I procrastinate...a lot.  I'm working on it and am doing a little better, but there is still lots of room for improvement.

Hi, I saw your link on 5 questions and popped over. I think we have very similar blogs and I am a new follower! (My dad said the same thing about High School...I never even went to the reunion!)

I love SB too! I was pregnant with my oldest when it first came out and was a fan before he was born.
