Childhood Flashbacks
  1. Did you have a set bedtime as a child?  If so, what was it? I'm sure I did... I'm sure it changed as I got older, but I don't remember what it was really... LOL I know when I was in high school, I stayed up way too late, but I did have a bedtime. *shrugs*
  2. Were you taught to be a member of the “Clean Plate Club?” Did it have affect your eating habits as an adult? My parents didn't make us clean our plates, but we did have to eat whatever Mom made for dinner. She all the time said, "I am not a short-order cook." She made one thing for dinner and you could either eat it or not. I do feel like I ate more of the foods I liked because I liked them.
  3. Share one thing that you were not allowed to do as a child. I was not allowed to leave if my parents didn't know where I was going. I could do something as easy as write a note and leave it on the table, but they always had to know where I was.
  4. What is the cheapest gas price you can remember? When I started driving, gas was $1.15 a gallon. I could fill up my tank for like $15.00. It was super awesome. LOL But the cheapest gas I've ever seen was 99 cents after 9/11. A gas station in my town got in trouble for raising the price too high and then for 24 hours they had gas for 99 cents.
  5. What was your favorite thing on the playground? Merry-go-rounds... I loved laying on them and letting everyone else push it around and around. :)
  6. Share one thing that your parents always made you do that you didn’t like doing.  Cleaning my room. Haha! My mom would send me to clean my room and find me in the closet with a book and a flashlight reading. 
  7. Do you remember your first kiss?  If so, share the details!  I don't remember where exactly it was, but my first kiss was when I was a sophomore in high school (I was a late bloomer!)... it was with my first boyfriend and probably at school. LOL
  8. Did you prefer to play inside or outside?  I liked the outdoors more as a child than I do now, but I've never been an outdoorsy type of girl. I remember days where my sister and the neighbor girl and I would go out and make up dance routines or do gymnastics in the front yard, but I was just as content inside with a book, movie, or TV show.
  9. What was your favorite TV show growing up? Oh... wow. Tough question. LOL  I liked a lot of shows back then... Full House, Growing Pains, Step by Step, Saved by the Bell... Haha...
  10. Share one awesome childhood memory.  I loved Christmas growing up... mostly because my grandma loved it so much. I have awesome memories of us all at their little house celebrating. I miss her like crazy sometimes... It's hard to believe that next month it will be 19 YEARS since she passed.
Bonus: Share a picture of yourself as a child.  

Haha! I think I'm super adorable in this picture.


  1. Yes, you do look super adorable! Oh, I am loving reading these from everyone. So far I am glad to see I was not the only one with tons of rules growing up!

I was getting a lot of spam comments, so I had to turn off anonymous user comments. Sorry! I love reading your comments though!
