Wee Bit Wednesday

{one} do you collect anything? if so, what and how long have you been collecting?

 I have a huge collection of turtle figurines. My dad buys me a magnet every time he goes on a trip (once a month) I actually have a magnet for every state. I have every movie that Brad Pitt has ever been in. I also get a shot glass every time I go on a trip.
{two} what is one cleaning tip that you swear by?

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. BEST.CLEANING.TOOL.EVER. Especially on bathtubs. It gets that yucky dirty and soap scum right off.
{three} who would you call for bail money?

My dad, without a doubt. I could seriously be locked in a jail cell in Mexico and he'd come get me.

{four} what is one thing you miss about being a kid?

The whole not paying bills thing. And not going to work.

{five} name a few of your guilty pleasures.

Sweet Tea Vodka and lemonades. And cookies. OMG I love cookies.
{six} how early do you start your holiday shopping?

I usually start on black Friday. This year, I've already gotten three gifts purchased and wrapped so I'm getting a head start!
{seven} what is a family tradition that you would like to pass on to your significant other/children?

Every 23rd of December, we stay up all night and wait until it is exactly 12:01 on Christmas Eve and we all pile into the car and go wake my dad up. My dad then lets us open presents and makes us an awesome breakfast. And let me tell you, I am going on 25 years old and Christmas with my dad is AMAZING. It's like being a kid all over again because he hasn't toned it down a bit since we were just little kids.

{eight} what do you consider your greatest achievement?

Hmm. I will probably say it will be when I finally finish my Paralegal courses and get my degree, but since that hasn't happened yet, I would probably say landing the job that I have now.

{nine} what do you do to pamper yourself?

I love love love to have my hair done. And get pedicures. I do like manicures, too, but I'm terrible about picking off the nail polish. So I usually don't waste my money. Massages are awesome, too.
{ten} if you were to start your own restaurant, what would it be called?

I would call it Dinner. Just to confuse people. Your hubby/wifey/bff/boyfriend/girlfriend would be all "Let's go to Dinner." And you'd be like, "Where do you wanna go?" and they'd be like "Dinner." And you'd say, "I understand, but where do you want to go?"  And it would just keep going on and on.

Love the answers. You collect a lot of items and that is super cool. I love the fact that you collect memoribila from every state where Brad Pitt's movies have taken place.

The christmas tradition is super cool.

Magic Erasers. Yep that stuff does work wonders. And ooo to not have to pay I would kill for that (ok not literally)

Awesome restaurant name. There is a bar/lounge a couple of towns over and it is called Cherch (pronounced church) and I love it when I can say "Hey lots go to Cherch and grab some drinks and dance". :)

Jess said...

Your dad does sound awesome. I love the "Dinner" idea. Brilliant!

Who's on first?

Oh, it's Dinner.

This post made me laugh, but feel like a failure because I have no good answer to #8.
