I used to do this thing where I asked 5 Random Questions. I answered them first in the post and you answered them in the comment section below. It was a great way to get to know other readers and for me to get to know you. The last time we played this little game was waaaaay back in February. This of course isn’t mandatory participation, but man, it would sure be cool if you did. And if you’ve played this game with me before, you can totally play it again…it’s a brand new set of 5 Questions.
What does your perfect day look like?
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
What do you have a fear of?
If money were no object, what would you do all day?
What are your favorite blogs to read…besides House Of Hipsters…tee-hee.
My morning coffee ritual was way different BC…that’s “before children” in mommy talk. These days it’s a 5am wake up call and a mad rush to get myself, The Boy and 2 kiddos out the door. A whirlwind of miniature socks and mascara. I’m usually holding a hairdryer in one hand and wiping a tiny hand with the other. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my life, but enjoying a quiet moment alone is sometimes cherished.
Hey you guys! This is a post I’ve been meaning to do for quite some time. A post to share some love, show some support and introduce you to a few really cool blogs I enjoy reading on the daily. You all know Grace and Laura, but in the sea of amazing blogs, I have some other hidden gems. Some you may know, some you may never have heard of.
You’ll never know how much of an influence your movies were on me in my teen years. I was a child of the 80s. I longed to be Molly Ringwald. Date Andrew McCarthy. Kiss Jake Ryan. Save Ferris. Give a diamond earring to Judd Nelson. I cut my hair short. Dyed it red. Was somewhat of an outsider. Had an air of cool punk rock. I listened to alternative music and wanted to drive a Carmen Ghia and live in Chicago. I even went so far as to drag my mother and sister to Wax Trax.
Since those days, I’ve grown up. Got a job. Have longer hair. Drive an SUV. Had babies. But looking back, I can see how those movies molded me into who I am today. Just between us, I had every single word memorized to Sixteen Candles, Pretty In Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful and The Breakfast Club. I recorded them to Memorex a VHS tape when they aired on TV and paused the recording thru all the commercials. The swear words were edited, but that is probably why my parents let my sister and I watch them every single day after school. Over and over again.
Here at House Of Hipsters I like to change it up and run this fun little post every few months. Today I’ve decided to name it “Getting To Know You, Getting To Know Me”. Mainly because I have absolutely no idea what I named it last time. It’s been WAY too long and it applies to everyone. My readers from 2 years ago, brand new readers from yesterday, friends—old and new, and me…obvs. I’m not saying mandatory participation, but it’s more fun when you chime in. Last October was the last time we played this game. If you missed it, you can read it here. ERMERGERD! So much has happened in the last few months and so many new faces. This is necessary you guys. We’re making this friendship bond stronger then ever!
