Sunday Social

After a long absence, I am once again linking up with Neely and Ashley for another Sunday Social. It feels good to be blogging again, a great outlet for me.

Here are this weeks questions:
1. What do you miss most about being a kid? The thing I miss most about being a kid is my friends. I miss being able to just hang out with my friends at a moments notice, like, 'Hey, do you want to come over after school?' 'Sure, that sounds fun.' Or being able to spend a whole weekend just hanging out with my friends. Now my friends and I have to plan everything out around kids and other household obligations.

2. Dd you have a nickname growing up? What was it? I didn't really have a nickname as a child. In fact, I was called Kimberly until I was in 5th grade.

3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess? I used to love playing 4-square and thether ball during recess. We also played this made up game with three tires that were half sticking out of the ground. We would hop from tire to tire, (now that I think about it, it was almost like juggling people on tires) and who ever was playing the longest would earn the right to make the rules. It was amazing how intense that game was. We would be able to remember who was on the tires at the end of the last recess and those people would be able to get back on and continue.

4. What did you want to be when you grew up? There was a time that I wanted to be a lawyer or doctor. At another point I just wanted to be a successful business woman with a corner office.

5. Did you participate in any school activities? I went to a Catholic school and participated in our school choir. We would sing in church during our school masses. I didn't do so much in middle school.

6. What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about? Hmm, I can't really think of anything funny that my parents remind me of. They often remind me of mistakes I've made. Maybe I have to get in touch with my parents and ask them what funny things I did as a child.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful and a great week!


  1. Stopping over from Sunday Social :) I used to love four square too and I went to a Catholic HS :)

  2. I think every little girl wanted to be a Lawyer (I did too...corporate lawyer) at some seemed like such a powerful position. I much rather be a Momma now...I think I'm just as powerful...LOL :) Enjoyed your post...Happy Sunday Social Day !

  3. I should do that, too! My mom tends to remind me of all the "horrible" things I did as a child as well. Now, with children on my own, I call it just "being a child".

    Actually, reading your no. 1, I am more spontaneous meeting with people nowadays than I have been as a child, because my friends usually lived car-rides away, so it was always: can one of the parents drive us. I still plan get-togethers, but sometimes it's simply "I could go for company, let's call the usual suspects".

  4. Wasn't this a FUN link-up this week?! LOVED being able to think back on my childhood and read on others, too - I love your # 1.. FRIENDS! So true! Life was so simple back then.. friends were AWESOME and always having fun!

  5. I miss being able to drop everything and hang out with friends, too. I miss being lazy and eating anything I wanted. Well, I still eat anything, but I have to make a conscious effort to work out now.


  6. Four square was an awesome recess game!!! Hope you have a great day!

  7. I did choir in school also, but spent way more time in band. I've always enjoyed the choir thing though because you didn't need to tote around a crazy heavy instrument to sing. You just opened your mouth and out came the notes.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog! Have a great week!
