New Friend + 5QF - 07.23.10

Woo hoo, another Friday here!!! ::waves hi to all my new & long-time followers:: && welcome to anyone visiting for the first time from New Friend Fridays!!

This week has been pretty typical - work, more work when I get home & baby crafting. I have a new DIY baby project + a tutorial that I just completed to share sometime soon, but I'm waiting to take a pic of the final project up on the shelf where it'll go. The Mr. was supposed to put said shelf up in the nursery yesterday, but our stupid crappy leveler wasn't in commission! So we have to head to Home Depot or Lowes to buy a new one this weekend. Baby J's nursery is coming along great & I hope to order some of the last few things we are buying prior to her shower(s) this weekend!! I can't wait to get it done, I just know it's gonna look fab! Switching topics - last night, after commuting for over an hour on public transportation + 30 minutes in my car, I realized that I left my cell phone ALL the way back at my office. I didn't want to leave it over night because I have heard stories where people's valuables have disappeared from their desks over night in our building. So, I frantically googled all my co-workers (we post documents to Government websites, so we all have our work contact info out on the web somewhere) & tried calling like 7 of them - no one was still there. So I had to drive ALL the way back into DC to get it. It sucked, but I have my phone & I'm happy. It's nothing special, but it is the main way I get in contact with people + my alarm, so I need it.

Anywho, now on to 5QF! If you want to participate, head on over to My Little Life & link up (and let me know if you do, I'd love to read my reader's answers)!

1. What were your school colors?
High school? Purple & White...the Chargers! And for college, it's green & gold...the Patriots!

2. What's the best compliment you ever received?
Hmmm, IDK. I guess I find it really satisifying when people appreciate the work that I do. Like last week, I got a really sweet note & $5 gift card to Starbucks from a project manager that I bent over backwards for to get something done fast. He was really appreciative that he sent me the note & gift card via another project manager (he works in a different state). I don't even like Starbucks (coffee's not my thing, but I do enjoy SB in the fall when they have that pumpkin spice stuff - oh.my.gaw. - that stuff with reduced fat steamed milk is DIVINE), but his gesture was so sweet that it made my work week. :)  

On a non-work related note, I really like when someone compliments my DIY projects or D&R work. I put a lot of time, effort & thought into everything that I do for our house, so it always makes me happy when someone compliments that. Makes me feel all warm & fuzzy, lol.

3. Do you buy cheap or expensive toilet paper?
I'd say relatively expensive - it's the name brand stuff. My hubby refuses to use the cheap stuff, lol. But we get it from BJ's Wholesale, so it's much cheaper than if we had purchased it in the store.

4. Have you ever had a surprise party thrown for you? Or have you had one for someone else?
Nope, I think I am too nosy/ask too many questions to be sucessfully surprised. But I have thrown 2 - one for my hubby (he figured out the surprise) & one for a girl friend for her bday (she didn't figure it out)! It was good. I'm trying to do a semi-surprise one for the hubbs again for his next bday, which is the BIG 3-0!! I am gonna tell him it'll be just the 2 of us, but I'm really gonna invite all of his close friends!

5. What is one material possession that you "can't live without"?
Clearly from my story above - my cell phone, lol. And now, I'd also have to say my lap top too.

That's all I got for this week. This weekend will be busy running errands for the most part & cleaning the house. I'm goign to this new Asian restaurant tonight for my two co-workers' birthdays & then tomorrow going to get spa pedis with my friend who's having her wedding ceremony (she's already legally married) in just a couple weeks. I'm in her bridal party, so we are taking her out for pedis, then lunch tomorrow! I like love food, especially trying new places so I'm sure I'll have lots of fun over the next two days!! And stay tuned, I have lots of great Project Nursery stuff, updates to my Spring/Summer Cleaning/Baby J to do list coming up over the next week or so! Hope everyone has a great weekend! 'Till next time!
