It's the end of another week!  That means it's time for the FRIDAY HOPS! If you are here for FIVE QUESTION FRIDAY or FRIDAY FRIEND CONNECT, or FOLLOW FRIDAY 40 AND OVER then just scroll down!

HUGE thank yous and hugs to the gals who sponsor these Friday memes!

Have a FANTASTIC weekend!

First is Hilary's Follow Friday Four Fill-In at Feeling Beachie!  

This week’s statements:

1. When I was little, all I wanted was a brother. And I ended up with THREE when my parents adopted three boys! It was the best thing EVER!
2. I always want to love to run but no matter how hard I try, I don’t. I try almost every day but I hated running in college and, apparently, I still hate it now. I'll just stick with walking my 5 miles every day.
3. The long and short of it all was that the time went by so fast while raising the lovelies that there wasn't any long to it and short is an understatement. 
4. The mist around the mountains makes me ---mountains? We don't have any mountains in the low-country. LOL

Next is Five Question Friday from Mama M. at My Little Life. 

This HOP is a great way to get to know each other better and to meet new friends!  If you click on the button, it'll take you right over there to join in the fun! 

Questions for Friday, September 23rd: (Special thanks to @kristinascackle, Sandy,@donettadalman, @gasfamily and @Lovely_Lici for their question suggestions! I'm dying for some fresh questions over here and besides that, I enjoy linking YOU in this little blog hop of ours, so please, please, please c'mon over to my community and offer up some question suggestions. OR, watch for my Twitter shout out for 5QF questions on Thursdays! If you go the Twitter route, remember to @5crookedhalos me and use hashtag #5QF!)

1. Dream job...realistic and completely unrealistic. Realistic- I'd love to try my hand at research. I love to research and I learning new things. Although, this might become boring at some point. Still, I'd love to give it a shot. Unrealistic- I don't actually think I have one for this....

2. Do you fart in front of your significant other? Darhin', ladies in the south do not do this evah. Hahahahahaha Hubs and I have four daughters and none of the women in this family are shy. About anything. Even fluffing. :)

3. What's the furthest you've ever traveled from home? How far and where was it? I think that would be California. My grandmother and I flew out to Nevada to stay with my Aunt Betty and we all drove back to SC so we could see the sights.

4. How do you celebrate birthday for your kids? Family only or friends? ... Alternate for those without kiddos: How did you celebrate birthdays as a kid? When the lovelies were growing up we always had both- a family celebration on the actual birthday and a friend party on the weekend. If the birthday fell on a weekend day, we still did both! AND, if any of them is ever here on their birthdays, we will still do both!

5. Fave thing about fall? It is impossible to narrow this down to one thing! Football, cooler temps, football, changing leaves, football, the holidays, football, the end of hurricane season...did I mention football?! I love everything about fall!

 AND let's not forget FOLLOW FRIDAY 40 AND OVER with JAVA over at NEVER GROWING OLD 

AND FRIDAY FRIEND CONNECT with Jan over at Midlife Parenting 


  1. Fluffing!!! HA HA HA Ha!! I haven't heard that in so long. I learned this term at my sister's wedding . . . her bridesmaids cracked up when I said I was going to "fluff" her dress.

  2. MC- Isn't that just the funniest term? LOL Every time I respond to your comments and write MC, I think Merry Christmas!

  3. I hope you have a great fall weekend--and get to watch plenty of football :)

  4. so do you like football? I love the answers --- ALL the answers!!!

  5. Kathy-Oh I'll watch plenty of football alright- I won't budge from in front of the television all weekend! After my morning walks that is. LOL

    Brenda- Yes, I kind of do. LOL Thanks!

  6. I am SO GLAD you stopped by my blog this morning! Your blog and writing is just what I was looking for!!! It's so nice to get to know you!

  7. What mountains? We have overpasses instead.:(

  8. You are so funny. I can´t help smiling when I read your blog. We don´t have mountains either, so I guess you´d fit right in here. :)
    Have a good weekend!

  9. Toll House- Thank you so much! I really appreciate this!

    Michele- Overpasses? LOL You crack me up girl!

    Betty- I used to love the mountains, now I can't live without the sea air in my lungs! I got the book yesterday and am reading like crazy!

  10. See I told you your writing is awesome. I love reading the comments after you write things. You do have a talent for it.
    Love the answers but since when haven't I? :o)
    Take care Pam and have a blessed weekend.

  11. Julie- You are too sweet! I always feel so much better after I read your comments!

  12. You do make me laugh. Those were some very good answers.
    Have a great weekend.

  13. FG- Thanks! We have learned to laugh a lot around here. It sure beats crying! LOL

  14. Oh, Pam. I did miss one thing...did you say it was football you love?

    Another great post...and this time I'll forgive you for bringing yet another Friday to my attention :)

  15. Desiree- Yes, it's so true. I'm a football addict! I will be in this house all weekend glued to the television watching college ball on Saturday and NFL on Sunday. Thanks! I was hoping you would!

  16. Yes on the fart! I don't know if this is a job but I would love to hose all the walks at Disneyland.
    I love to hose! Enjoyed reading your answers. Have a nice weekend.

  17. Debby- Hosing the walks at Disneyland sounds like fun. When it's real hot, the water would keep you cooled off! LOL Thanks!

  18. What a great post, lot's of Friday fun stuff.
    Have a lovely weekend!

  19. What my boys do is definitely NOT fluffing. lol And you're so right about the time when we're raising kids - it goes so fast!

    I'm with you on fall. My very favorite!!

  20. Eva- That's what Fridays are all about- FUN STUFF! LOL You too!

    Judy- To be honest, what my girls do is not fluffing either- you'd think we raised a house full of boys. Their daddy taught them well. LOL

  21. You sound like me... I hate running, but love walking... go figure...thanks for playing along!

  22. I can't run, but do love to walk. Nice to meet you. Happy new follower from the over 40 blog hop.

  23. In my house of boys there is no fluffing,lol. Their motto is louder the better....boys are gross.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
