Five Question Friday! 4/15/11

I had to do this Five Question Friday today because I have a really good answer for one of them!

1. What is your favorite sign of spring?

The sounds of kids playing outside.  My neighborhood comes alive once the temps hit the 40's (hey, it's Michigan -- we don't need much!).  Kids on bikes, scooters, playing hockey, out in the park.  I can just open one of my doors and hear the chatter of kids.  It's really a nice noise after the silence of winter.

2. What was your best birthday ever?

Best?  I don't know if I can say best.  But, I remember when my mom made me TWO cakes.  A bunny cake and a cake that spelled out my name -- so 7 little cakes K-R-I-S-T-E-N.  Those cakes were the BOMB.

3. What is your favorite dessert?

Anything involving peanut butter. 

4. What is the best excuse you've ever used to get out of a ticket?

Drum roll please...

I saw the lights go on behind me, and started to snicker to myself. 

I thought, "No way I'm getting a ticket TODAY." 

I pulled over into the nearest parking lot.  The police officer walked up to my car as I rolled down the window on my minivan.  He peered in the window as I pulled my purse over from the passenger side seat. 

I put my purse on my 9-month pregnant belly and reached inside to get my license. The officer looked down at my huge belly and asked "Ummm... where were you driving to?"  I let him know I was just going to the store, but I knew he thought he had a woman-in-labor on his hands!  I got a polite "please drive slower," and was on my way. 

And THAT ladies is a guaranteed way to get out of a ticket!

By the way... my water broke the next day! 

5. Do you wake up before your alarm, with your alarm, or after hitting snooze several times?

Snooze.  Snooze.  Snooze.  Snooze.  Crap -- what time is it?
