Friday Hops!

It's time for the FRIDAY HOPS!!!   

I'm linking up with Java's Follow Friday 40 and Over at Never Growing Old  

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

 This week’s statements:

1. Growing up, I was the only one in my family who was SPOILED ROTTEN.  I was an only child for the first 11 years and my parents and grandparents spoiled me.  When my parents adopted my three brothers, THEY spoiled me rotten.  And no, I didn't mind one little bit!

2. On a typical morning, before I leave the house, I pull up the blind in the window that faces my car so Tucker can sit on the ledge and look out.  He sits there and waits for me to return and, if I don't pull the blind up, he sticks his head through the slats and I'm scared he'll get hurt.  I don't like to leave him so he goes most places with me.  Pets sure are good at giving the guilt trips, aren't they?  

3. No matter how hard I try, I am still afraid of heights.  And closed in spaces and anything near my face.  I was going to say snakes but I don't try to get over that! 

4. Their facial expression is the first thing I notice about people.  It's a pretty good tell-tale sign as to their mood---unless they're just deep in thought.  

And that's it for the Friday HOPS this week!  Y'all probably won't be hearing from me until Sunday or Monday because BIRDIE IS GRADUATING TOMORROW!  And EVERYONE is coming home as well as some extended family!  Meanwhile, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND and HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!


  1. Enjoy your weekend! Congratulations to Birdie too.
    Happy Mothers Day!!


  2. I almost put spoiled rotten too. I'm sure my brothers would say so.

    ENJOY your weekend! I hope it holds some very special moments for your family.
    I look forward to reading about it next week ;)

  3. Very cute post! Congratulations on the graduation, and I hope you have a Happy Mother's Day! Julie

  4. Enjoy your weekend, and have a happy Mother's Day.

  5. Have a truly wonderful time with all the graduation celebrating. Happy Mother's Day!

  6. I am not good at heights either.

    I am terrible for remembering names when introduced to new people, I am trying to read their faces.


  7. Great answers. I too was the only girl and the baby so spoiled I was.

  8. sounds like a sweet life to be spoild I was second oldest of 5 come see my answers at

  9. hope you have a great time at the graduation and with everyone being at home :)

  10. When I was born my brothers were 8 and 13 so I was the baby and the only girl. Spoiled - yes, spoiled brat - NO. Give my love to all the girls this weekend.

  11. congrats to Birdie!!! I hear you about #1 - I was an only child :)

  12. You know if you went up in a balloon with me sometime I could get you over that pesky fear of heights. It doesn't feel like you're actually going up. More like the ground is just falling away.

    Big congrats to you and Miss Birdie on such a wonderful accomplishment. You must be just busting with pride.

  13. My husband used to call me spoiled, until I pointed out that I'd been with him longer than my parents, so if I was spoiled, it was HIS fault!

  14. Stopping in to say "Happy Mother's Day!" Have a wonderful day. I'm afraid of heights too!

  15. CONGRATS to Birdie. I can't wait to read about and see some pictures.
    Take care and God Bless!!
