1. What do you call them- flip flops, sandals, thongs, or slippers?

I love Flip Flops! No question about it. In fact, it drives me crazy when people (especially my mom, bless her heart!) refers to them as thongs. In my mind, thongs are underwear, not something you wear on your feet! Sandals are usually bigger, often involving straps that go around your feet or ankles. Slippers are soft and fuzzy and are worn around the house.
2. Are you a "my kids can do no wrong" kind of mom or a "Johnny punched you? Well what did you do to him first?!" kind of mom?
Definitely the "what did you do to him first?" mom! I have learned (especially with Colin) that my kids come to me with only the part of the story involving what the other person did wrong. You would think, by now, that Colin would have figured out that I will ask him about his part in the story - and usually end up finding out that he started the punching/kicking/name calling. But I guess he just likes to have to have that part of the story dragged out of him!! ;)
Nope, I never consider them innocent until proven guilty. Well, almost never!
3. Would you confront a good friend that looked/looks down on your husband/significant other?
I absolutely would. My husband is my best friend. He is the most amazing man I know and I have never loved anybody as fiercely and intimately as I love him. If there was a reason that someone close to me was looking down on him, I would definitely confront it. I can't imagine having a close friend not get along with my husband, and if there was any sort of an issue, I would want to resolve it immediately. If it weren't able to be resolved, I would likely have to consider the importance of that friendship in my life. I mean, come on, look how great he is ...
Thankfully, to my knowledge, I don't have that issue to deal with! :)
4. Biggest pet peeve?
Noises. Random white noise drives me crazy. On top of that list is the sound of people eating. Chewing. Smacking their lips. Swallowing. Eww. I can't handle it. Top that off with the fact that any noise starts to annoy me after awhile (including music!) and you find a woman (me) who is working very hard to allow God to increase her patience!! In a home with five kids, noise is inevitable!
5. What's your favorite take out meal?
Pizza Hut. It's been my favorite for a LONG time. Unfortunately, there is not a Pizza Hut anywhere near me. If I'm ordering take-out from my home, my first choice would have to be Scotty B's Restaurant - SO yummy!! I love eating in there, too, because the staff are so friendly and the clean-up is WAY easier (because I don't have to do it)!! :)
