BYOC..Its Friday

Friday BYOC ala Draz

1. Do you have a favorite traditional “birthday meal”? If yes – what is it and what is the meaning behind it? I don't have a traditional meal but we do have a family tradition that we go out. One of my very good couple friends and us go out minus the kids for just adult time. We do this for each of our birthdays. When it is a kid birthday (she has two and I have four) we go out all together (although since the oldest three have left home we don't always do each child). A couple of years ago I added to this tradition by choosing something to eat for dinner that I have never tried before. One year it was lobster.

2. If you’ve lost weight, has your style changed since you lost weight? Or what's your dream purchase when you do lose weight/hit goal?

I don't think my style has changed. I always wanted to dress like I do now only I looked like crap that way so I ended up just wearing whatever fit. My uniform pre weight-loss was tshirt, jeans, and a blouse or cardi over the top. I always loved retro and arty clothes. I now get to wear some of those clothes and it is FUN!!! The list of items that I can now wear that I could not before are: boots, knee high socks, leggings, dresses. I did dream of getting a wrap dress and I have not yet done that.

3. Pick one question of the following two to answer: Who is your favorite Muppet and why? Or who is your favorite Smurf and why?

Tough question-I guess I will have to go with the muppet because I hated surfs. Sesame street aired its first program when I started kindergarten and I LOVED it. I watched it everyday and was totally disappointed that my kids really never took to it like I did. Oddly I would say my favorite was Burt...Maybe because my siblings annoyed me? :) For some reason I liked his pointy little head and his sense of order. The count was always pretty cool too-with his slight mathiness.

4. When you buy a lotion or after bath spray or body spray or candle (not perfume) – what’s the “flavor” you always find yourself loving the most?

I am a green tea and lemon kind of girl. Cost plus has some really nice stuff.

5. Repeat question. Summarize your week in real life and in blogland.

It has been really difficult this week to stay on top of stuff. The new term has me getting used to working again. As we are in the middle of a move our internet is messed up. David moved it to the new house before we actually moved our beds to the new house. Thus far the only computer time I have had is sitting at Starbucks in the mornings for my coffee. I can read blogs on my phone but it is REALLY hard to post as I have enough trouble with typos when I am on a keyboard. The stupid little screen buttons drive me insane.
