Five Question Friday

Yay for the weekend!!  It has been forever since I have done a Five Question Friday so I thought I would play along today.   The kids are napping and I need something to do to avoid any type of housework. :)  If you want to join in, check out Mama M's blog! 

1. Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?
Ohhh, that's a hard one.  There's not really anyone that looks like me so I guess I just get to pick whoever I want, right?  Right!  So I am going to go with Kate Winslet.  I love her and her movies, she is awesome, so down to earth and totally beautiful!  (Have you seen The Life of David Gale?  It's a must see!)

2. Did you ever go to summer camp?
No.  At least I don't think I did.  I would probably remember something like that though so I am going to stick with, no.

3. What sends you running and screaming in the other direction?
Snakes!!  Oh my gosh, I HATE them.  HATE!  (And I try not use that word very often.)  I used to be a spaz about all kinds of bugs and creepy crawly things but I have gotten really brave in my old age.  I kid you not, I will even kill spiders.  Yup, that's right, with these hands.  Well, these hands with about 5 Kleenexes, just in case.  Anyway, snakes still freak me out, I'm sure they always will.  I also plan on doing my best to make Braden afraid of them so he isn't one of those boys that brings them home for me to see.  YUCK!

4. What is something you do that drives your spouse nuts?
Gasp!  What!?  Nothing, I'm sure!
Okay, wait a minute, let me ask...
So can you believe it, there IS something.
He says my "backseat driving"
I have no idea what he's talking about. ;)

5. What is currently your favorite song?
I guess I don't really have a favorite.  I love anything catchy and that's good to rock out in my kitchen with the kids.  Alexa has been a big fan of the Black Eyed Peas and Lady Gaga lately...she's likes to shake her booty too. :)

I hope everyone has a fabulous Friday!!

Gardner snakes...I can handle those. Now snakes like the ones in your, no!

Hey, my kiddos rock out to those songs too! Raw, raw, ra ha ha ha!

I get so antsy in the car when my husband is driving that I now drive 90% of the time just so I can relax. And that way I can't be accused of backseat driving :D

Sonya said...

The life of David Gale is a great movie!!

He & Me + 3 said...

me too on the snakes. Cracking up that you gasped at something that drives your spouse crazy. LOL My hubs hates when I drive from other places in the car too. :)

Fun post Laura. I love Kate Winslet too!

Backseat driving? What is that?!? HA. Actually, my hubby is terrible for that!

Mama M. said...

Yay!! I'm so glad you did 5QF!!

Snakes...blech! From a distance, I'm okay (as long as we're talkin' gardener that what they're called??)!

It's just so hard NOT to be a backseat driver right?

Tyler said...

ok I had to like scroll past your snake pic because it was giving me major ibby jibbies!! yuck!

Kate winslet is awesome! I had a brain fart and forgot about her!! She is so natural and kind of keeps to herself

Have a great weekend girlie

Julie said...

I love Kate Winslet. She's make a great Laura Bignell!!

And...what wrong with snakes?? he he

Have a great weekend!

Carrie said...

I'm with you on hating snakes but I am more of a snake killer than a runner. I can often be seen chasing a snake across my yard with a shovel. Once I even caught one with my hedge clippers. Surprisingly it's head didn't get chopped off so I was stuck with a live snake in my clippers. Luckily my neighbor was outside and he came over, grabbed it by the tail and then whipped it like a whip, which ended up killing it. Thank goodness he was outside!!!

Jen said...

I am with you on the snakes!!!! Oh, and back when we were younger, John would speed, not a lot, but some...and I used to fake sleep in the car so I wouldn't do any "back seat driving." Have a GREAT weekend!!!!

Stacey said...

Hate snakes! even the little ones! Kate Winslet is beautiful. I wouldn't even dare ask my fiance what I do to drive him crazy! lol

Melissa said...

Oh you really creeped me out too with your snake pic! Have a great week-end!

Uncle Phill said...

Eff snakes! Where did you find such a terrible photo?

Lourie said...

I think Indiana Jones says it best, "I HATE SNAKES!" hahaha.

Jenn said...

Oh I think Kate Winslet is a great choice for you!! ;) from the little I have learned anyway!! he he!
I think it is funny you asked your hubby what drives him nuts... so funny! Hope you had a nice weekend!

Tina Fisher said...

Backseat driving? What's that? ;)

We like to shake the booty over here with some fun rockin' songs too!

Hope you had a great weekend!

Pennie said...

You ASKED your hubby what drives him nuts? oooo-brave woman. I just go along with the same-old and not open that can of worms. I prefer to be in the dark on that one. ha! (Probably because there is not much...yeah...probably that...)

I love that you list Alexa's favorite song easily, before you can name your own - the true sign of a good mom who carts her kids around a lot in the car. lol

great answers!

mrs. b. said...

um, i think that kate winselt would be the perfect actress to play you! in fact, i think that you do look alike! well, besides hair color, but still.

and we listen to the same music over here! we're just shakin' our groove thangs all over the place. er, something like that. :)

Fun answers!
I often tell my husband "Watch that car!" and he'll reply "I see it." and I say "Well, do something about it. Don't just watch us have an accident..." *sigh* What can ya do? The one time I didn't say something... we were hit and run.

Arizona Mamma said...

I'm a backseat driver too! Andy hates it.

Katrina said...

Haha!! I'm the worst backseat driver too. I even catch myself doing and I can't stop myself.

Aidyn's already freaked out about snakes so I think I'll be good in that department. I would run if ever brought one home for me. Gross.

Stephanie said...

I've missed 5 question Friday. Can't wait to join in again this week.

I am absolutely terrified of snakes too----yuck!!!!!!

Hope you guys are doing okay!!!!

dan and rachel said...

so funny that you actually asked your husband. LOL!

i hate snakes, too! :/

Lindsay said...

Great questions!

I am a total backseat driver too. I don't even think about it till I get "the look" from the hubby.

Amy said...

Always making me laugh, Laura! Thanks. I especially loved the convo with your hubby about what drives him crazy. You are too funny.
