5QF once again.

1. What is one food you could eat everyday?
That's like asking which child is your favorite. If I say one thing, I'll be cheating on all my other favorites. I am always in the mood for grilled foods in the summer. Chad's baby back ribs are up there on the list. It's a whole day process to perfect them--the crockpot, a modified rub, the perfect char, are all involved.

2. Are you working in the career you thought you would be when you were 18?
Wow, 18. For me 18 was only 3 years ago, and at that time I had a new boyfriend, fresh out of high school, and without a clue as to what I wanted to do with the next part of my life. I didn't have it all figured out and I was struggling finding my passion. It wasn't until my dad said to me one day, "Amanda, you are great with kids, be a early childhood teacher." Passion found.

3. What is something you wish you would have done when you were younger and you didn't?
Played softball. When I was in middle school, that was the thing to do among all my friends. My best friends all played on leagues in the summer, while I was afraid of the ball. I'll admit it--I didn't like speeding, huge, white softballs near my face. I'm afraid I've gotta break some news to you readers, I am not a coordinated person. That's why me + softball never mixed.

4. What color are your kitchen walls?
Better question for my house, what color are all your walls. I live in a rental. All my walls are the exact same color. My landlord decided to paint the inside of our house a brown/peach/orange combo {and yes, that does provide some decorating challenges}. My dream kitchen would be inpired by these two kitchens:

{both via house beautiful}

5. Do you remember what your very first favorite song was?
Depends on what age you're asking for. When I was younger and watching PBS, it was probably the theme song to Seasame Street or "This is the song that Never Ends" from Lamb Chop {which is now stuck in my head}. When I was in middle school it was this boy band:
My sister, Laura, and I were obsessed with BSB. Everytime one of their songs came on the radio, we would scramble to get to the radio in time to press record. We had the book Nick Carter's mom wrote, we had posters from Teen Beat covering our door. We even had a videotape featuring some of their behind-the-scenes concert footage {Howard...Censored}. We were infatuated with them.

Recently, one day, Chad and I were listening to the radio and "I Want it That Way" came on. I knew every single word. Isn't music funny like that? Something played repeatedly almost 10 years ago, is something you remember verbatim like no time had ever passed.

Play along. It's fun!

P.S. Check out Meghan's recap and giveaway--I wish she would have taken me on her adventure!

Wow, where do I start because I love this!

Mmm those ribs sound wonderful! I'm now starving!

I'm not coordinated either. My best friend encouraged me to try softball when I was 9/10. I went to 2 practices. Second practice they were throwing the balls and we were suppose to catch them. It hit me square in the face, my nose to be exact. My glasses broke and my nose poured blood everywhere. I never went back after that night. In case you wondered, softballs are NOT soft. 8)

Those kitchens are absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to have a gorgeous kitchen to cook in. One day.

& I love BSB. Pretty sure I could still sing all the songs on that CD word for word. 8)

Have a great weekend love! <3
