Five Question Friday

It's been a little while since I have participated in Five Question Friday, but I'm working on getting back on track with my blogging.

1. What is your favorite sign of spring?  I love when the temperatures start to warm up.  To me, that is a sign that winter is leaving us.  However, my favorite sign of spring has to be when I start seeing the daffodils blooming.  They can be pretty much anywhere: in flowerbeds, along driveways, wild ones in the middle of yards, along the side of the road, even whole fields full of them.  The daffodils are a sure sign that spring is on the way in Arkansas.

2. What was your best birthday ever?  I always have great birthdays.  My birthdays are in early May so there is always so much going on and there is usually nice, spring weather.  My most memorable birthday was probably five years ago when I got engaged.  The very next birthday we mailed our wedding invitations!  Those were definitely very exciting.

3. What is your favorite dessert?  I LOVE dessert and so I'm not very picky about it.  I don't know that I have a favorite, but I love cheesecake of just about any variety from traditional to no-so-traditional.  I love cheesecake so much I have even ordered it from a bakery in New York City a couple of times.  I'm craving some now just thinking about it.  I also love my chocolate, too.  Chocolate desserts are always very tempting to me.  I think I like dessert just a little too much.  If I would stay away from it maybe I could drop a few pounds.  Ha!  I don't see that happening!

4. What is the best excuse you've ever used to get out of a ticket?  I have never had to use an excuse because I have never had a ticket.  I have had two written warning, but those were back in college.  I would have to say I am just lucky because I have been known to speed.  Now, I need to go knock on every wooden object I find so I don't get a ticket.  I hope my luck doesn't run out!

5. Do you wake up before your alarm, with your alarm, or after hitting snooze several times?  I usually wake up a little before my alarm.  My internal alarm clock works very well.  I think it's a safety mechanism for me.  I am always worrying that my alarm won't go off and I will oversleep.  Talk about a panic attack.  That would cause a big one for me.  However,  I don't usually get out off bed until the alarm goes off and I have hit the snooze button once.  Wow, when I reread this, I sounded a little OCD.

Have a great weekend!
