So… I found this on someone else’s blog and decided I’d play along.
The fact is, I’m bored with TV and I’m hyped up on junk food that I had at my parents’ house today. Yeah… pizza, chocolate chip cookies, and Muddy Buddies chex mix, all in one day.
My tummy may hate me tomorrow.
1. What is your favorite Easter tradition?
Growing up, my extended family ALWAYS visited for Easter. My aunt and uncle and cousins from North Carolina always came down and brought their kids, and we had awesome times together. We always dyed eggs and hid them around my grandma’s (we called her MaMa) HUGE yard.
I remember my cousin Matt tricking us with Easter eggs one year by hiding raw, unboiled, eggs from MaMa’s fridge. Of course, I found the egg, which he said was a lucky non-dyed egg… that then broke ALL OVER ME… yuck! Raw egg everywhere, talk about gross!
We never ate any of the Easter eggs, and I don’t remember prize eggs, but I always wondered how the Easter Bunny found my cousins even when they were in another state. I guess he’s magic just like Santa!
2. Are you a “shower” or a “long, hot bath” kind of person?
I love long hot baths, but I usually wind up taking showers after running or working out. Long hot baths are reserved for shaving my legs or days when I’m super stressed (or sick). Long hot showers can be relaxing too!
3. Can you parallel park, and if so, when is the last time you did?
I have not parallel parked since I took the driver’s test in December 2001- I think I parallel parked enough for a lifetime practicing for that test, though! My mom, dad, and I would drive out to the high school on Sunday afternoons for me to practice.
I had absolutely no trouble passing that part of the test. But since I’m notoriously bad at parking a car the normal way sometimes, I seriously hope I never have to take the test again.
4. What is your favorite Easter candy?
Honestly, I *hate* most of the traditional “Only at Easter” candies and treats, such as Peeps or Cadbury Eggs. I’ve never been a fan of either. I do like Robin Eggs though- they are like Whoppers or Malted Milk Balls and pretty good. I still don’t consider them an “Easter” candy though- as they’re basically just pastel Whoppers, haha. But so yummy!
5. Easter: do you go all out with the Easter Bunny or focus on the religious part of the holiday?
Honestly, neither. For me, holidays have always been about family, friends, and togetherness. I don’t focus on religious aspects, but I don’t “go all out on the Easter Bunny” either. I think there’s a happy medium there, and I don’t think that either approach is right or wrong.
Sometimes I make it to church, sometimes I don’t. I do have a pretty awesome Easter basket made up for my husband, but he knows I got everything inside the basket on sale and that it didn’t come from some hokey cartoon character, haha.
Don’t worry- I’m not spoiling it for him a day early! That’s last year’s Easter basket- I included plenty of dental care items with all the candy!
