Wow...Two days in a row!

1. If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be?

If I could change anything about would have to be my fears!  I get my self worked up so bad about  flying.  I am deathly afraid of flying...I mean I tried to pass up on TWO FREE trips to Hawaii! Of course I went and I survived, but my anxiety is so bad!  I even take pills and they don't really help.  I stress for months before the flight knowing that I have to fly soon and then stress while on vacation about flying home!  Yes, I know flying is safer than driving to the airport but that doesn't make me feel any better.  I have had some horrific experiences on airplanes and I even had two friends pass away in a plane crash (a tiny plane...but still!)  All of these incidents rush through my head and I wish it would stop!  I would love to travel all the time...but I have to space out my flights!  So that's the main thing I would change! :)

2. Write about a time when you got lost.
I dont remember ever being lost as a child...I guess if I was, I blocked that out! :)  A few years ago, Wes and I were at my parents mountain house and we rode separately because he was going to Anderson before going home and I was going to Clemson for a football game or something.  I have never driven from the mountains to Clemson and this was before we had GPS and I took a wrong turn somewhere and got lost.  I hate that feeling of being in the middle of no where and not knowing how to get somewhere.  I of course I call Wes in tears, while he was laughing at me haha, and all he could say is use your map.  Of course I didn't have a map with me...he bought me one when I got home!  So then he asked...where are you? Why would I have to call him if I knew that?  Well after I drove some more, I finally found a road number.  While I was sitting there this scary looking guy walked by my car and gave his toothless smile and started taping the back of my car (I was at a stop sign).  Scared me to death...again Wes hysterically laughing at this point.  After a few minutes he figured out where I was and told me how to get to Clemson!

3. Camping or 5 star hotel?
It really depends on my mood.  I do love a weekend camping with friends.  We always have so much fun!  A large group of our friends usually go once a year (at a off road complex).  So the boys take there play vehicles for rock crawling adventures and we camp out all weekend.  This picture isn't of us of course, but this is the way to go....we have our truck tent with air mattress (that is made for back of trucks with the wheel base cut out) so we aren't sleeping on the ground...makes life much better!
But I am a girl, so I do love the excuse to stay in a fancy hotel too!! :) 

4. Have you donated blood?
I know this is going to sound horrible..but no I havent.  I will change that though!!

5. Do you have a budget or do you 'fly by' most months?

A little of both. I am more of the worrier about money.  I mean Wes also makes sure all the bills are paid...but I don't want to spend any money until all bills are paid and groceries are bought...Wes sometimes forgets how expensive groceries are!!  I cant wait to get to a point in time where we can save more money!
