1. Would you grow your hair out to cut it?
Last year, I grew my hair out forever. When I finally went in to get it cut, I was really hoping that it was long enough to donate. It was an inch too short :( I was sad. My sister-in-law's boyfriend is currently growing his hair out to donate it. He found a place that will take 8 inches instead of 10, so I think he's cutting it this weekend. I'm growing my hair out right now so I can perm it for my birthday.
2. What song makes you think of summer?
Will Smith's "Getting Jiggy with It" and obviously, his "Summertime". Also, New Kids on the Block's Summertime. Country music makes me think of summer too - open air, hanging out at the beach, relaxing music.
3. Are you a flip flops or sandals kind of person.
If I could find some sandals that didn't make me look like I'm either on safari or a hippie, I would love them. Until then I'll wear uncomfortable flip flops.
4. Favorite summer treat?
Good old fashioned ice cream. There's nothing like it at the end of a hot summer day.
I wish I could share that with CJ, but until he gets over his milk allergy, none for him.
5. Do you do something special for the father of your children?
I'll let Bubba sleep in and make him breakfast. That's really all we have planned.
Who is your favorite father from a book series?
Mr. Weasley from Harry Potter! That's probably going to be a really common answer. Also, Mr. O'Hara and Rhett Butler in Gone with the Wind. I always loved how dedicated a father Rhett was, even though in that time period, fathers weren't very hands-on. He didn't care that he had a girl and not a boy. "What use are boys anyway?" I loved the dad from The Lovely Bones too. But I can't think about that movie or it makes me cry.
Weekly Reading Recap
I'm currently reading Darkening Dream, a great YA paranormal book. It took a bit to get into it, but now that the story is picking up, I love it. CJ has been reading a ton of picture books, including The Giving Tree and My Father The Dog. I'm also reading The Bloggess' memoir which is ridiculously funny. What are you reading this week?
