Meme Friday #30!!

Hello Sunshines! I hope you all have had a great week! Mine has been good, but full and I am worn. I am thankful that today is Friday and that I am just staying home with my Parker and watching my friend's daughter. I really need a down day...I am beat!

I came across this article yesterday on yahoo. It is about a Iowa H.S. student who has a very interesting looking car. She is a softball player and her car definitely reflect that...see:
Pretty interesting if you ask me. Haha. But that brings up my question for you today!

If you could have any car, what would it be? 

Me, I am pretty much in love with mini-vans! That, to me is so much better than a sports car! I love the Kia Sedona. I think it is awesome. Why, not sure, just do. I have a Kia Soul right now (yes the hamster car) and I actually very much love it. But my hope is to have another child  and I would love to be a mini-van mom! (Yah, I said it!) 

You can participate in Aloha Friday too! Just head over to An Island Life for all the rules and to link up!!

1) What is your favorite sign of spring?
Definitely the blooming flowers, budding trees, the return of green grass - it just gets me all excited!

2) What was your best birthday ever?
My birthday in 2004 - I was turning 22. My boyfriend (now hubby) came down for the weekend to visit me at college. He took me to the zoo (it's what I wanted!) and we enjoyed the zoo while waiting to meet Rupert (from Survivor). We waited for 2 hours before the line was cut off 5 people in front of us - I was really upset and basically stormed off and cried. (I think mostly because I was so so hot and tired). We walked towards the exit and Drew set me down outside the Cat House and asked if he could try to make the day better. I said, yah, sure, whatever and he gave me this card (a tri-fold) and I opened it and directly say at the bottom he signed and said, open it again (I literally didn't even read the outside or the inside of the card (like the words that someone poetically put on it). I opened it all the way to find the words "Will you marry me?" I looked right at him, he was holding the ring, and I just started laughing. (keep in mind, I had probably stopped crying a couple minutes prior). I laughed for what seemed like forever, never said anything, just laughed. He finally looked at me and said, "So?" I was like "yes of course!" After that we headed to LaRosa's pizza and then went back to school where my friends had set up a surprise birthday party for me! It was the. best. birthday. evah!

3) What is your favorite dessert?
Cookies...I love cookies, they are my weakness! (esp. chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin!)

4) What is the best excuse you've ever used to get out of a ticket?
I truly haven't been pulled over much. But one time I was so sick that I was just trying to get home and that was my excuse. The jerk of an officer was basically like "well, you're lucky I care if someone is sick, I'm giving you a warning." I just looked at him, smiled and took my warning. 

5) Do you wake up with your alarm, before your alarm, or after hitting snooze several times?
When I set an alarm, I basically hit the snooze a lot before getting up. Most of the time, my alarm is my son! :)

Your turn friends! To participate in 5 Question Friday, head over to My Little Life for the rules and to link up!

Have a good weekend friends!

And if not, then I want a corvette :)

But hey as long as we are dreaming right.

Coming from a "baseball" family, I love that car! (My nephews all played in college and one of my brothers is a scout for MLB.)

I understand the passion question, but when I thought about the word passion and looked it up (at five this A.M.)it had a bit of desperation to it. I am settled and constant in my true loves, for Christ, for my son, and for my husband. Passion didn't fit for me.

Too picky? Maybe!

my car of choice?
an SUV, with 4 boys... we need big rides! i love my pathfinder...

Good question..I would like a chauffered limo so I could stretch out and read and/or watch people trying to peek in to see who the VIP is lol.

homeschoolceo said...

That's funny :)

I'd love a Mazda CX9. I think that's the official name?? Lol.
Right now I have a van that is really too small for our family of 6. We need something bigger ;)

Andrea said...

I really am not into cars.. I would love a Honda Odyssey but lately looking into the SUV/Yukon kind of things. Something cute that will fit my family. ;) I'm boring.

Victoria said...

Hmmm...if I could have any car.....well, I really love my Dodge Durango but if I could I would have an old school Woodie (Jeep Wagoneer)....I've loved them forever. Probably because my older sister did first. ;)

I would LOVE a Prius!!! I just got my credit card bill and we spent nearly $500 in gas last month in our big guzzlers, yikes!

Renee said...

If I could have any car...I think I'd want a Honda Civic Hybrid or a Toyota Prius. It would be nice for running around town in - less gas!

bratts29 said...

Hmmmm, I always wanted an Aston Martin like James bond!

Stacy Uncorked said...

That car is wild and cute! :)

If I could have any car, I'd love something fun and sporty. But I do love my new (to me) Hyundai Santa Fe. :)

we're on our second minivan and i wish i could be done with it. but i still have kids who would slam the car doors open and hit other cars, leaving me to pay the bill for the paint touch up. yeah, i've done that once already.

i would love a zippy new honda crv or toyota rav4. or a hybrid ford escape.

have a good weekend!
