5 Question Friday 9/9

1. What ringtone do you have on your cell phone?   I have several.  My main ringtone is a snippet of the song Blessed Be Your Name by Tree63.  I love that song.    I also have some silly tones, like one that sounds like an alarm and says "Alert... Alert.... Your Husband is Calling". 

2. What is your favorite memory from this summer?  My sister's wedding.  No one particular moment, but the whole thing... the fun we had making her bouquets with my mom and sisters, decorating the hall, the perfect wedding ceremony, the fun reception.... and just knowing that my sister was marrying a wonderful guy.  Ever looked at two people and just known that they were perfect for each other?  Yeah, that's how I feel about my sister and her husband.  I like to remind her that I pointed this out even before they ever started dating, back when she swore they were "just friends".  LOL!  :)    (Go say hello to the newlywed on her new blog HERE!)

Kindle, Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Pearl Display3. Paper books or ebooks?   Well, as of my birthday yesterday, both!  I read a lot.  A LOT.  There are quite literally stacks of books in every room of my house.  (Well, ok, not the bathrooms, that's just gross.)  Part of those books come from writing book reviews, some from the library, some from thrift stores, some passed on from friends... you get the idea.  I have a lot of  "real" books.   Some I swap out after reading through PaperBackSwap.com, some I share with friends, and some I just keep.
     I've mentioned on and off my interest in a Kindle in passing conversations with my husband, but never, ever thought I'd own one... it's just not in our budget. Well, my wondeful husband surprised me with one yesterday.  I was totally shocked and very happy.  As soon as I get done playing with blogs I'm headed over to the Amazon site to snag some FREE Kindle ebooks! I have a feeling that I'll still enjoy my "real" books, as well, but I am really excited to try out my new Kindle. 

4. If you could have one home upgrade what would it be and why?    I'd have someone "do" our yard. I would have a deck with a cover and a fence built out back so that our family could make use of our empty lot of a yard.  The yard has nothing... no landscaping, no trees, no fence.  I'd LOVE to be able to use that space!

5. When was your first serious boyfriend/girlfriend?   Ha ha ha. Oh, the stories I could tell.  I was 15 and in high school, so I'm not sure the term "serious" should apply, but back then I sure thought it did.  We had lots of drama and long, whispered phone calls full of Pink Floyd music in our moments of deep, serious thinking.... AKA: teenaged drama.   That drama is exactly why I don't understand people who say they'd like to go back to high school again.... no thank you!
