New Friend + 5Q Friday - 09.03.10

Woo hoo, another Friday here & it's SEPTEMBER (I heart the fall)!!! ::waves hi to all my new & long-time followers:: && welcome to anyone visiting for the first time from New Friend Fridays!! Look around - I hope you like what you see & come back more often. :)

Since we are in our final few weeks of the fiscal year at work, I have been SO busy as usual. I can't wait until September 24th is over - that's when we have to have everything done by to get it in to our finance office by the actual end of the FY (September 30th). The good news is - I got approved for 50 hours of comp time between now & then...hopefully I won't need all that, but anything extra is just getting tacked on to my maternity leave, which will begin in just about 2 months!!! I am so excited to meet my little girl & enjoy the holidays without having to worry about work! Woo!

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 do you do when you have time to yourself?
I like to pamper myself with a nice mani/pedi/eyebrow wax day. I USED to get massages about once a month, but haven't gotten one since getting pregnant. In the first tri, I was too much of a nervous nellie to get one &  after that,  I have just been so busy each weekend that looking for a good place that does pre-natal massages in my area (for an affordable price) has slipped my mind. I think I'll treat myself to at least one before this little one gets here. :)  As you may have noticed...I also love crafting. It's fun & very fulfilling for me to make pretty stuff for my house, baby girl & friends! I feel like handmade decor & gifts are just that much more special.

2. When you look out your kitchen window, what do you see?
The house right across from me, a tree, the parking lot for the set of town houses behind ours & the street leading out to the main roads. Ahhh, the suburbs. But it's what I know & love!

3. Who/What would you want to be reincarnated as?
Ummm, IDK - I guess someone who's rich, but not famous & happy. I would love to have endless pools of money to shop & decorate to my heart's content, but I love my life as is so I'm good just being me too. :)

4. What is your biggest pet peeve about other people's kids?
When they scream & run wild & carry on when their parents are in public, trying to get something done & the parents just ignore them! It's more of a pet peeve with the parents than with the kids I guess because I realize that the kids clearly just want attention &/or are bored doing whatever it is they are doing. I'm talking about older children, not babies - kids who know better, but are never corrected by their parents or the adult they are with. I'm sure with my little one on the way,. I'll get to experience this at some point, but I hope we can figure out a way to curb this as much as possible.

5. Regular or Diet soda?
Regular, but I only drink Sprite or Ginger ale every once in a while...even before getting pregnant. I gave up caffeine & soda (besides chocolate & the occasional Coke float - yum!) long ago just because I hear it's good for you & I didn't care much about coffee or soda, so it was easy for me. 
And that's all I got this week! This weekend, I'll be keeping busy with a community Labor Day weekend pool party & BBQ on Saturday, fall decorating, my pre-Baby  J to do list & a VA Tech football game on Monday (bought the hubbs tickets for the game for our anniversary & it''s finally here)! Busy, busy. 'Till next time!

I've been dreaming about a prenatal massage. I wonder if I could put that on my registry? :)

Wow you do have a busy weekend woman! Have fun on Saturday, and most importantly at the game, I hope you guys have a great anniversary.

The pet peeve thing? yeah I'm with you, its definitely more the parents I think. If they don't correct their kids, who will? Ah well!
