Five Question Friday - 2.25.11

1. Can you drive a stick shift?
No, I can't, and I'm okay with that.

2. What are two foods you just can't eat?
Sushi and mushrooms - two foods that my husband likes. Okay, I'm lying a bit, he Loves (notice the capital L?) sushi. Bleh. Gag me. Have I ever tasted either? No way! But I know I wouldn't like it.

3. Do you buy Girl Scout Cookies? What is your favorite kind?
I wasn't going to this year. I am not happy with my tummy 10 months after baby and swimsuit season is drawing near. But alas, my husband was taken captive by a beautiful young lady at church and he bought them. At least I think he did, because I have no memory of it. He used my name and phone number. And that gets me to thinking that I boughtthem. His thin mints are still hanging around. My tagalongs are long-gone. We got the cookies Sunday. No willpower at all.

4. How do you pamper yourself?
I am not the pampering kind. Reading blogs is what I do to unwind. I feel like I am being pampered just getting my hair cut. Maybe that's why it's hard for me to go get it cut; I feel like I'm throwing money away. Funny how we push men to get their hair cut but then we just ignore our own head of long hair. Or is that just me?

5. What is your nickname and how did you get it?
Do I really want to share this? No, but I will.

No Nose. Because, well, isn't it obvious?

I got it in high school. Nice.

My husband's Valentine card said he loved my small nose. How sweet of him to tell me he loves what I'm insecure about.

I once had a guy cut my hair that literally had no nose. Not kidding. Made me appreciate my own nose, no matter how small it is.

Your post is cracking me up today. We may never know who really bought those cookies but thanks for describing Ava so sweetly.

Hi, Brooke, I'm stopping by from 5QF. A couple of years ago my daughter was a Girl Scout trying to sell enough cookies to get to camp, so we had our fill of GS cookies! This year, I only bought one box of Caramel Delights...not because I really wanted the cookies, but because I couldn't resist that sweet little faces of my neighbor's girls. have a great weekend.

I totally agree with #4!! I feel the same way.

And you have a beautiful nose!! I have always thought you did.

Ha! ha! Brooke, you are too funny. You do have a cute nose.....maybe that is why you snort?? LOL! Just kidding. Michael sounds like he is pretty bogged down with work so I'm thinking you could always make a trip into Abilene for the day to help pass the time!! I'm sure Lori and I would love for you to come and go to the zoo?

I definitely think it's time for you to get a haircut! Feel free to join me, I am going tomorrow! Woo-hoo!

I have no will power with the Girl Scout cookies at all. Doesn't help that my daughter is one! We keep ripping into new boxes!

I don't even want to go there with the nose situation. I am completely insecure about mine for the opposite reason! I was actually called, "Big Nose" in junior high by a "mean girl." I would trade noses with you in an instant! It is lovely!
