My Five Friday Faves lists will from time to time include affiliate links or products my family received for the blog.
Starting this week, I’ll be bringing a new feature to the blog, five Friday faves. The hope is to share with you some of the cool things we’ve been using, doing, reading, etc.
Hey, Pittsburghers. Did you know that currently there are uninsured children and youth in the City of Pittsburgh…to the tune of over 2,000 kids without health insurance? If you have insurance, think about what that means for the parents of these uninsured kids. No immunizations. No medicine when colds last too long. No inhalers for kids who have asthma (or no way to detect that they have it).

It’s not been the normal summer here in Pittsburgh – lots of cool weather and rainy weekends. That means my kids have been inside, responsible for being imaginative and play less with balls and bikes and more with games and stuffed animals.
Congratulations to Amy S. for winning the pair of pre-sale tickets to the Just Between Friends Consignment Sale.
For those of you who want to be sure to check it out, head out to Monroeville this weekend, starting Thursday. More details can be found on my original post.
Today’s NaBloPoMo Prompt: Name five things inside your refrigerator right now and how you feel about them.
1. Diet Coke with Lime: For the most part, I’m drinking water…or coffee…but having something just a ‘lil sweet is sometimes just the thing I need.
Today’s Prompt: Tell us what you’ve learned so far about daily blogging.
I’ve decided to take a stab at this one via a list of five things.
1. My blogging hasn’t really been inspired by the daily prompts. I need to find time to write about passions, or to post some of the reviews I need to get through. These things inspire me. The daily prompts have been, well, okay.
November 7 Prompt: If you had to switch your first name, what name would you choose and why?
“I learned how to write it when I first started school” – Dierks Bentley, “My Last Name”
If I had to change my first name, goodness, I am not sure why…
Prompt: Tell us about your writing space. Where do you write your blog posts?
Truthfully? Anywhere and everywhere. Usually, I am sprawled on the couch, kids in bed, tv on mindless shows. Tonight, I am on my BlackBerry at the kitchen table while the kids finish eating (it’s taken almost an hour to eat dinner tonight). Other times I am on the iPad in bed while Greg watches sports.
Prompt: Who is your favourite character of all time?
This is a super easy one. Nicholas Sparks’ Jamie from “A Walk to Remember”. She reminded me so much of Wendy – the hope, the fight, the love, the dreams.
I remember reading the book the first time. It seems to hit my memory that someone in the family, knowing what we were going through with Wendy, told my mom I had to read it, but that she should be prepared for me to be impacted by it.

If you found one million dollars in the morning and had to spend it by nightfall, what would you do with the money?
I’d start out by searching Zillow for a new house, in the area. We’d spend around $400,000, just to be sure we got what we wanted. 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a finished basement (with space for couponing, scrapbooking, and playing), a garage for two cars, and a pool.
