Five Question Friday, Take Four

1. Did you have a favorite blanket or toy as a kid? If so, do you still have it?
I remember having a large panda bear I called Poppy, the same thing I called my grandpa who bought it for me.  It is in my dad's garage still.  (I hope!)

2. Do you dream in color?
I don't know.  I think so.  I remember things being colors in my dreams afterwards.

3. How tall are you? Do you wish you were shorter or taller?
I am 5'2".  And yes!  I wish I were taller.  Can I add four inches?  All to my legs?  Please?  Pretty please?

4. If you could have anyone's (celeb or other) voice as the guide on your GPS, who would it be?
Ha, Sean Connery.  I actually put mine on the British voice because she sounds less bitchy than the American voice.  But Sean Connery would be super!

5. Do you return your shopping cart to the corral or leave it wherever in the parking lot?
I return it.  

So now I've finished reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and am waiting for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.  After that will probably be The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest.  Woo-Hoo!  I've been sewing like mad lately, too.  I made two lunch bags, a dress for Lauren and now a shirt for myself.  This has been my first experience with interfacing.  

Jen and I have been putting a lot of effort into our joint blog lately.  Check it out: Team Awesome.  I know, best name ever!  We have some good things lined up to be posted soon, so keep an eye on it.

Ben has been getting in lots of flight hours.  He dropped the crab pots today and plans to pull them tomorrow.  On Saturday we're going to drive up to Mount Vernon to go to a birthday party.  My friend Andrea (from elementary school) is having a barbecue birthday party for her one year old daughter, Gwyn.  I'm excited to go up.  Last weekend I drove to Seattle to go to Andrea's birthday celebration.  She booked a private ghost tour of Pike Place Market.  First we met at the Abili Room in Pike Place where most people had drinks, but I had a fabulous apple, brie and focaccia bread appetizer plate.  It was so yum.  I wish I had brought my camera, but I didn't.  Luckily, this person did, and they posted their picture on Flickr:  Doesn't that look delicious? Then we did the ghost tour, which thankfully wasn't scary at all, but was a good history lesson.  It was fun to see a group of girls I had been in Campfire Girls with but hadn't seen for 13 years.

Natalie is pointing to my eyes now.  She thinks it is hilarious.  I say "eye" every time, and occasionally when I ask her where my eye is, she points to it.  She has been climbing onto the coffee table and the ottoman and just getting around everywhere.  Lauren has been so amazing- believe it or not, she's been doing MATH!  Like, real addition and subtraction.  I can't get over what a genius she is!  And she gets so excited about doing it.  She just loves it.  It's wonderful.  I hope she can hold on to that.

The weather here has been perfect lately, between 75 and 85 degrees, cool in the morning and sunny all afternoon.  I think July in Washington is one of my new favorite things.
