LOL & Sunday Social

I can't believe it's the last day of September! Where has the month gone?!?!? But what a gorgeous weekend we had here! I can't believe how beautiful the weather was! It was sunny and warm, without being hot- a perfect fall weekend! I had an amazing weekend (which I will write about later this week) and I hope you did too!
I am a HUGE hockey fan (Go Rangers!) and I am, like the rest of the fans, disappointed with the lockout. A friend of mine posted this on Facebook, and I just had to share:
Sunday Social
1. What do you miss most about being a kid?
Having no responsibilities! It's really not a lot of fun being a grown up. Sure, you can do whatever you want, but you also have to pay the bills, clean the house, do groceries, etc. Not a whole lot of fun. 

2. Did you have a nickname growing up? What was it?
My dad used to call me 'Bean' (and sometimes still does). I'm not sure why...I don't consider this a nickname, but other do...a lot of my friends call me either Meliss or Miss. I see them both as just shorter versions of my name and not so much a nickname. 

3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
Recess was pretty standard...we'd just play games- tag, red rover, baseball, etc. It was fun. 

4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
A lot of things! A politician and lawyer were the most common/long standing. 

5. What was your favorite toy?
Like every little girl, I loved Barbie. I also liked Quints (quintuplet dolls). I was really into arts and crafts, so I loved crayons, paint, clay, etc. I loved my Light Brite and Etch-A-Sketch. My parents also got me this toy that hooked up to our VCR and I could draw, colour, etc on our tv. That was pretty cool!

6. What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?
Hmm...I'm not sure! I don't think this is the funniest...but I used to have an imaginary friend, and I knew it was imaginary. I also used to tell people I had multiple brains and they were different colours. 
I was a creative child.   


  1. Lite Brites!! I used to spend hours on mine. And Red Rover?! I forgot all about that game! Sooo fun!

    Your blog is so pretty. Glad I stopped by from Sunday Social. New Follower.


  2. September flew by so fast! I can't believe it will be October in a few days.

    Lite Brights were one of my favorite toys as a child. It always made me sad to have to take part my picture afterwards though.

  3. i think nicknames that just appear out of no where are the best. my dad always calls me "goose" for no rhyme or reason, he just started calling me that one day when i was a baby, and i've been stuck ever since! :)

  4. I LOVED playing with our light bright! But I never wanted to take apart the picture once I finished mom had to take it apart after I fell asleep! :)
