Fill in the Blank Friday

1. The first thing I do in the morning is hit the snooze button atleast once.

2. Every night before bed I make coffee and set the timer for the morning, check all of the locks and make sure my alarm is set.

3. My favorite thing to do when I'm having a bad day is vent to my Mom and then go to Barnes and Noble...wandering through all of the books calms me down.

4. Something that makes me cringe is lazy parents. When I'm out in public and there are little kids going crazy and their parents could obviously care less I want to slap the parent. Kids will be kids, but it's the parent's responsibility to teach them boundaries and good behavior. Lazy parenting is a disservice to the child and to society.

5. Social situations sometimes make me nervous. I'm far too good at getting myself worked up, which often works to my disadvantage when I'm heading into a social situation where I'm not 100% comfortable. I'm a good conversationalist and actually do just fine in social situations once I'm in them, it's just getting over my initial unease that can be tough.

6. I like to collect postcards and coasters. My friends and family are wonderful about always picking up a postcard or some coasters when they travel. And the coasters that I'm talking about are the cardboard ones you get at a bar or restaurant...not fancy, legit coaster sets. And, I recently joined Postcrossing, which has been very cool so far.

7. Weekends are for relaxing, house cleaning, catching up on homework, hanging out with friends and family, attempting to stay up late, drinking entirely too many cups of coffee and tea and cooking. I never appreciated weekends when I was a student, but now that I'm in the real world with a Monday through Friday job, I crave my weekends!


  1. #4 I totally hear you on that one, just keep in mind some of those kids may have autism spectrum disorders. :)

  3. i love that you collect coasters and not the "legit" kind. If i'm ever discovering a new fancy place or neat hole in the wall, i'm going to grab you one ;)

    i love postcards and so postcrossing is a lot of fun. I just got my twin sister hooked on it and she is addicted ;) i am even helping her start up a blog just to keep track of her postcrossing adventures. She's too cute! :)

    #3- i just got back from Barnes and Noble (i love their postcards) and i'm loving it. We didn't have it back in Texas where i lived so it was a good trade off for us not having a Hobby Lobby here. Mom's make everything better don't they?

    HAPPY FRIDAY erin!!! :)

  4. Autism Spectrum Disorders was actually my area of focus during my undergrad, so I completely understand. I'm talking more about that parent who'd rather chat on the phone than keep an eye on their child who is climbing on it's stroller on a crowded bus, causing a stranger to catch the stroller from toppling so the child doesn't hurt him/herself. lol.

  5. I'll have to bring you some coasters and postcards from Germany next time ;)
    Where do you get your pictures again? I can't find the post where you told me anymore..and I can't remember :)

  6. I hit the snooze button A LOT! Weekends are the BEST! :)

  7. oh goodness i hit the snooze button way to many times. and i check the locks and my alarm before i go to bed too! i can get so nervous sometimes! haha.
    collecting postcards is such a great thing to collect! how wonderful!


Thanks for stopping by!
