Happy Wednesday!

Joining Joyce @From This Side Of The Pond today

1. April showers bring May flowers, or so the saying goes. When did you last 'shower' attention on someone or have attention 'showered' on you? Did you love it, or did all that attention make you squirm?

My husband is pretty good at showering attention on me all the time. Some times I love it and other times....I'm like give me some space! lol! Katelyn is coming home for Easter break and I plan on showering her with lots of mom attention. She will hate and love it. 

2. Share a favorite 'spring break' memory. Not talking about just the 'college spring break' thing, but any favorite spring break memory you'd like to share. Keep it family friendly please!

I loved our Spring Break Katelyn's junior year of HS when we did all the college tours. We did the marathon from Buffalo to Pittsburgh across the state of Pennsylvania ending in Philly and then spent the weekend in DC. It was a whirl wind. I just remember thinking how can she be thinking of college we just signed her up for kindergarten went so she is just registered for junior year of college! 

3. It's National Pecan Month...are you a fan? If so, what's your favorite dish that calls for pecans?

Yes I love a small slice of pecan pie but my favorite meal is making pecan crusted Salmon....I probably make it every other week

4.  'Put all your eggs in one basket', 'egg on your face', 'rotten egg', 'walk on eggshells', or 'a good egg'...which egg-spression could most recently be applied to your own life?

As of lately I'd say eggs in one basket...especially being on the job hunt. I seem to go on one interview and it's hard to keep the momentum going because I want to see what happens with the one's such a process. 

5.  In my experience___________________________________.
Karma doesn't exist

6. What's a  favorite song with the word rain in its title or lyrics?
Two songs with the word rain in it remind me of my younger days
First is Eurythmics-Here comes the rain

And Prince Purple Rain

7. What does the word hope mean to you?

Hope is not a word I try to use a lot. I live with a science guy and that word doesn't hold any weight to him. I think hope has let me down but I still hold out hope for certain uncertainties! 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I have been trying to lose a few lbs.....been working out 6-7 days a week. Trying to make better food choices but this time of year is tough because I believe in supporting the Girl Scouts so theres that ! Then I'm I big supporter of Easter candy....I love Peeps and Cadbury Mini Eggs! But with that said I'm really proud that I have kicked my jelly bean habit so theres that! Needless to say come April 21st.....It's gonna be a new day!

Happy Wednesday!

Good luck with your workouts! It's so much easier this time of year to feel motivated :-)

Well I have a jar of jellybeans on my kitchen counter, that might have been refilled once already this spring. Oops.

Have a wonderful time with your girl. They only pretend to hate the attention. Secretly they love it : ) I'll have both mine here with boyfriends in tow for the Easter weekend. Can't wait!

I haven't listened to that Eurythmic song for quite some time. Good one.
Karma - hmm I don't know could it just be random events? Did you see that FL road rage clip with the Karma going bad for the raging driver. It's worth a watch if you didn't see it yet.

My husband always wants to touch me and while I should find it flattering, I am mauled all day long by children.


That pecan crusted salmon sounds delicious.

I love those jelly belly's - so addicting. I give you a lot of credit for exercising 6-7 days per week. That is really motivating.
Can't believe that Katelyn is registering for Junior year. I remember you blogging about going on the college circuit. Wow - time does fly by.

Be glad for the attention, I would love that! Have a great time with Katelyn. I will have to check out a recipe for that pecan crusted salmon, sounds yummy. No one said Purple Rain today, great answer.
