5 Question Friday!

It's been awhile, but I am ready today! Here we go!

1. Do you collect anything? Why yes, I do!
Well, I did.. before we had Aidan.
To seal the deal on me being a complete geek.. I collect stamps.
Not just any stamps, they have to be U.S. stamps, in mint condition..
never been mailed!

I have a ton of United States stamps,
going all the way back to the early 1900's..and I love them.
It's like a little piece of artwork to me,
and I hope to get back into collecting again someday.

The stamps below are my favorite mint set that I have,
it's called Flags 24/7.
The artist painted the same flag at different times of the day,
I think they're gorgeous! :)

2. Name 3 celebrities that you find good looking.

1. Jake Gyllenhaal.. c'mon, look at him, he's beautiful!

2. Edward Norton.. I love Edward Norton :)

3. Taylor Lautner.. I know this guy's kinda young,
but I think he is going to be a hugely successful actor..
not to mention, he is adorable, and in the Twilight movies :)

3. Do you have any scars? If so, what's the story behind them? The only one I can think of is my c-section scar..
and that's from (duh) Aidan.

4. What is a food you like to eat, but others may think is gross or weird?

Gerber meat sticks.
I could eat these for days!
I have NO idea what turned me on to them,
but my friend Michelle & I would eat these up all the time!

5. Have you ever seen a tornado in real life? Nope..
but I do remember hiding under a dining room table with my Grandma
during the big Kalamazoo tornado of 1980! :)


  1. I used to collect stamps, too! Geeks unite!
    EWWWW to the meat sticks. They just don't look... right... to me. :D
    Completely agree about Jake, too. Feel like SUCH an old lady when I realize how young these guys are!

  2. oo the stamp collection sounds cool! I would love to see it sometime! I'm not a huge follower of actors.. I would prob pick some sports people.. I have more scars then I could even think to list.. lots of ones from playing softball.. okay those meat sticks look disgusting.. I would say my weird food is prob grilled cheese dipped in ketchup or peanut butter w/ a light dusting of sugar.. grew up on that.. my Dad doesn't like jelly so we never had jelly :-P I didn't see the twister but saw the green sky and things flying all over the place one time!

  3. I've been thinking about getting the kids interested in stamp collecting. Taylor Lautner if he's over 18 he's leagal.(That's what my sister says she got a crush on Zac Efron. I used to eat my kids meat sticks too they are really good.
