The Friday Five Link Up!

Today myself and my fellow Vegas blogging mom Christin from That’s What She Said! are branching out and joining the Friday Five link up from the DC Trifecta (Eat Pray Run, DC, You Signed Up For What?!, and Mar on the Run!).


Each week these fun ladies come up with a theme and we choose five things to write about it.  This week’s theme is Five Things About You.  So here it goes!

1.  I don’ have a junk drawer.  I’m a bit on the OCD side, so there is not one single spot in my house that is not organized (even in my kids’ playroom).


2.  I don’t like to drink cold water.  Room temp for me please!


3.  When I was 15, my mom sent me on a church camping trip where we were mimicking the lives of pioneers.  We had to pull our own wagon (that we first had to build) for like 10 miles up into the mountains with no food and hardly any water.  Once we got to our camping spot, they put us all in a field, released about 20 live chickens and said, “There’s your dinner, go get it.”  To be fair, I don’t think my mom knew exactly what the trip would entail, but I can tell you, it was horrific.  This is seriously what it was like:


4.  My husband and I had our wedding in a casino on the Las Vegas Strip, because that’s how we roll.


5.  I am very clumsy.  I once cut my finger open with a butter knife and had to get 5 stitches.  I also slipped and fell in my garage, broke my arm in 3 different places and had to have surgery to have a metal plate and 8 screws put in.


So there you have it! My first Friday Five Link Up! I’m so excited to be joining in on the fun! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! And, just or fun, did your parents ever send you on any horrific trips as a kid?

  1. I do like my water cold, but I absolutely will not drink soda with ice in it. 🙂
    UGH YOUR ARM!! That was the worst! We are so accident prone haha. I’m so glad you healed up well from that madness!

  2. OMG! It’s crazy! Are you sure that trip wasn’t for troubled kids like they show sometimes on TV?! lol! Loved getting to know you better, I just hope you get rid of your clumsiness, it seems to be somewhat dangerous 😀 xoxo

    • I really don’t know what the organizers were thinking. I guess they were trying to make it authentic? I will totally come organize your house haha! I think I missed my calling as a professional organizer because I love doing it.

  3. I am having so much fun reading all these blog posts! I love a good junk drawer but I also love organization so I have specific junk drawers if that makes any sense. Your number 3 sounds horrible, I would have some how cried my way home!

  4. You have me laughing out loud at the chicken comment:) I have been on a few pioneer treks, but they have all been catered, although if I ever get put in charge of a youth group and we have to do one. I am so going to do that to them as a joke, LOL Love it!!!!

    • Haha I’d love to see the look on their faces! I kept thinking it was a joke the whole time and they were going to be like, “Just kidding! Here’s this amazing food we made for you all! But sadly no.

  5. I am probably the exact opposite of OCD. If you were to step foot in my house you would probably have a panic attack :/
    MY hubby wishes we just got married in Vegas! We would have saved a lot of money 🙂

    • Haha, I’d probably just start organizing your stuff. Oh and our wedding was still crazy expensive! Those strip hotels ain’t cheap for a wedding reception! Ah the money we could have saved if we’d just done a drive through wedding, lol!
