Five Question Friday - 2/25/2011


1. Can you drive a stick shift?
I sure can.  My first two cars were both manuals, and then my beater car that I had before the Tahoe {which I absolutly adore, just FYI} was also a manual.  I do think they are 'funner' to drive {yes I do realize that 'funner' isn't a word, but... it is funner to say funner, LOL}.  As a mom though, the automatic is much easier with the kiddos in the backset.

2. What are two foods you just can't eat?
Anything creepy... like weird creepy.  This includes snails and fish eggs.  Other than that I am pretty equal opportunity on food.  Mr. SD has introduced me to lots of foods I didn't eat, and most of them are just fine.  Though I have yet to appreciate Milk Toast.  I guess Milk Toast is a food I would really rather not eat.

3. Do you buy Girl Scout Cookies? What is your favorite kind?
I typically don't buy them anymore since they have become sooooooo expensive.  Thin Mints are my all time favorite, and then those coconut ones are a close second.  Luckily a lady in  my office does her part to support the Girl Scouts, and then shares the benefits with us.  So this year I got a whole sleeve of Thin Mints all to myself.  Bliss!

4. How do you pamper yourself?
A bath with oils and a good book.  Chocolate is always a plus.  Of course this treat tends towards a hot shower right now {joys of motherhood, LOL}.  Another pampering is to go to the craft/fabric store with no time limit.  Gets me out of the house {some peace and quiet} and I get to spend time looking at some of my favorite things: Craft Supplies!
5. What is your nickname and how did you get it?
Don't have one that I know.  Sometimes, I get called Kimberlito since we all like to pretend we can speak spanish at the office, but I don't know that it counts.
Well that is all for this week.  Check back Monday for a Weekend Wrap full of photos of Ms. Diva.

  1. This is a fun meme. I enjoyed driving stick shift. Once you learn you never forget. I have never tried Milk toast. I do buy GS cookies out of tradition but I certainly don't need to eat them.

While blog hopping recently, I came across this fantastic tip listed on Be Our Best.  Jill has compiled her Top 10 Blogging Tips in one place to help others out there in blogland.  Most of them I had heard of before.  But she had one on her list that I have only seen a couple times in practice, and have not heard a how-to do it before.Number 6: Add a clickable signature to your comments.If you add the following text to the bottom of the comments you leave for other bloggers, whatever text you insert for “Your Text Here” will be clickable.  You have to switch out “{“ and “}” with “<” and “>” then it will work.  Remember to also change the “Your Blog Address” part, LOL! {a href=http://www.YourBlogAddress.com/ }YOUR TEXT HERE {/a}Bonus Tip ~ I use Notepad to store all the html codes I use on a regular basis {the direct link code for my signature image, color codes, etc.}.  I added the above code to my Notepad page, edited it with my information, and saved it.  Now all I have to do …

Quick Kitchen Curtain Tutorial

How comfortable with sewing are you?  Would you like to a quick and easy project that you can do yourself to create a window valance/ruffle out of any fabric you find?  Here you go!  There are only three lines of stitching in this project.  Very little measuring, and gorgeous results.

This project actually started almost two years ago, when I painted our current kitchen a pale ice blue we had left over from painting a bedroom.  To try something different, I painted the ceiling of the kitchen a deep, high-gloss navy.  You can see just a little bit of the ceiling in the finished curtain picture below.  As much as I adore the contrast in the paint colors, trying to find a ready made curtain for the kitchen has proven impossible.  Lots of kitchen curtains are to frilly, not the right color, too white, so on and so forth.  Did I mention too expensive?
So, when I brought home this fabric from Sewing Club and was trying to figure out what 'it' wanted to be, I decided it would be perfe…
