FMM: Childhood Flashbacks

Childhood Flashbacks
1. Did you have a set bedtime as a child?  If so, what was it? Yes, technically we were supposed to be in bed by 8 or 9. As we got older, that went away.. But in middle school, I would go to bed at 9 for some reason. Don't know why.
2. Were you taught to be a member of the “Clean Plate Club?” Did it have affect your eating habits as an adult?  Yes, definitely a clean plate club member  And, yes it did affect my eating habits. I felt if I didn't eat all the food, I was wasting it.
3. Share one thing that you were not allowed to do as a child. Sleepovers. Yes, my mom would never let me do sleepovers. I don't know why but I still get made fun of for it. But yes, I have graduated on to doing many sleepovers.
4. What is the cheapest gas price you can remember?  Pretty sure somewhere in the $2.00 range. If only we could go back to that, I'd have a full tank of gas always.
5. What was your favorite thing on the playground?  I was never really a fan of playground stuff. Since always being the big kid, I preferred to play kick-ball, foursquare and stuff I didn't have to climb on.
6. Share one thing that your parents always made you do that you didn't like doing.  Going to Sunday school. My mom made us go to a different church where I never new anyone. I hated it. I am so glad I am done with that stuff.
7. Do you remember your first kiss?  If so, share the details!  I didn't have my first kiss til out of high school.
8. Did you prefer to play inside or outside?  Well, depending on the weather - outside. I come from  a big family, I have 4 other siblings. We were the house to come to in our neighborhood to play basketball and night games. It was a blast!
9. What was your favorite TV show growing up?  Too many. Saved by the bell, Hey Arnold  Doug, Global Guts, The Rug-rats, All That, basically anything on Nickelodeon/Nick @ Nite. I miss those shows.
10. Share one awesome childhood memory. The first time my family went on a vacation, we went to Florida to visit my Grandma. It was the first time flying for all of us. It was awesome and where my love for some day living near a beach came from.
Bonus: Share a picture of yourself as a child.

I think my 6th birthday. I was all about the chocolate cake.


  1. Came by from FMM. That birthday picture of you is so cute!! I was the same way with the clean plate club and try hard not to waste food even now.

  2. Loved your post and your blog - stopped by and followed from FMM!! Ann

  3. No childhood sleepovers? That must have been hard.

  4. I was only allow sleepovers with One cousins family, that was it.
    Also I was never allow to go to camp, that one was the hardest for me because EVERYONE from school went every year.
    Stopping by from FMM.

  5. I LOVE THAT B-DAY PIC OF YOU! (yes, spoken in all caps). That look on your face was like, "Oh my gawsh, it's my birthday. Oh my gawsh, I'm gonna eat some cake".

    I'm giggling at #9 because those were my favorite shows to watch when my oldest Greedies were just little kids. Geeze. I'm such and old bitty.

  6. I would like to have a nice chat with you and how do you work about your weight problem. I feel so interested on how proud are you from your goals.
