Fill in the Blank Friday

I love Lauren’s “fill in the blank meme” and she credits this week’s blanks to Shaunie at Unknown Boutique. So without further ado, let’s go:

1. When I was a kid I wanted to be a teacher or an artist when I grew up.

2. As an adult, my dream job would be a children’s story book illustrator.

3. When I was younger I wanted to be just like my mom. (Although Vicki Stubing was a close second – I wanted to live on “The Love Boat”.)

4. The childhood Halloween costume that I remember most was when I was a clown. Lordy, I hated that costume (clowns gave me the willies), and strangely, I couldn’t tell you what other costumes I wore. (traumatized, perhaps?)

5. My favorite childhood toy was oh my gosh, I don’t think I remember!!!??? I was such a bookworm, I’d actually have to say my “Nancy Drew” books. Although, my Barbie Dream Boat was pretty awesome.
(see #3 above…)

6. The time I got into the biggest amount of trouble when I was a kid was when I when I was in high school and got pulled over by the police for whatever reason on a Friday night. They let me off with a warning when they heard I was “Jim’s kid” but didn’t go straight home, and my parents heard the tag called over their police scanner (I come by my geekdom honestly) so did I ever get an earful when I arrived home later that evening! Otherwise, I’d say I was a pretty good kid.

7. I get daily inspiration from my children. They are such a hoot, and see things so differently (innocently?) than I do at times.

How would you fill in the blanks? Happy Friday, and have a fantastic weekend!


  1. I don’t remember my childhood costumes either! How strange. And there ya go, now I don’t have to stress about traumatizing my future children if I can’t find the exact costume they want one day…

    • Hey, glad to help…just don’t dress your kids as clowns, mkay? *shudders*
