From Ann of McGuffy’s Reader:
“The Friendly Fill-Ins are four fun and easy statements to complete. Ellen of 15andmeowing provides the first two statements and the final two are offered by myself. We try to make sure they will be fun to both answer and share. On Friday, the linky will be posted at or about 12:00 AM. Please come back, link up, and share your thoughts!”
And away we go! Here are this week’s statements with my fill-ins:
1. The most interesting museum I have been to is… Oh, that’s easy! The Academy of Natural Sciences, affectionately known as the “Dinosaur Museum” in Philadelphia:
Princess Nagger chose to have a couple of birthday celebrations there, since she announced when she was 4 that she was going to grow up to be a Paleontologist. In February of 2011, the museum was having a Paleopalooza, where Princess Nagger actually got to meet the famous Paleontologist that she had seen on many of her favorite dinosaur shows on National Geographic, Dr. Philip Manning:
I do believe she denoted that as the best day ever. She also got to listen to Dr. Scott Sampson (of Dinosaur Train fame) do his presentation about dinosaurs, as well as see three Dinosaur Train episodes on the big screen.
One of these days we’d love to get to the American Museum of Natural History in New York.
2. The most interesting historical place I have been to is… This one’s a little more difficult to answer, because having lived in a wonderfully historic area in Pennsylvania, we got to go to many interesting historical places. Whenever my sister and her family would come visit from Iowa, we’d do all the tourist-y things going to Gettysburg, Philadelphia, Washington DC and Virginia, and of course various historical places within Pennsylvania.
And of course when we’d go visit in Iowa, they’d return the favor on doing tourist-y stuff and visiting cool historical places. Probably one of my favorite places, though, was on our cross-country trip/vacation, we took the kids to Mt. Rushmore – I bet they would agree it’s one of the family favorites:
3. Prison Break is back!
I loved that show when it was on, and was sad when it ended in 2009, so I was happy to see it got resurrected. Granted, it’s only a 9-episode return, but it’s nice that it’s back.
Of course I haven’t watched the episodes that have aired yet, I’m waiting for an opportunity to binge-watch…heh! I wonder if that’s one of the reasons the ratings are dropping each week, because there are too many of us out there that want to savor this moment…
4. I was surprised… That the hubby has been mandated to a 6-week liquid diet after having one wisdom tooth and two molars extracted last week on the same side. Seems a bit extreme to me, the poor guy is going crazy not being able to eat real food! Let’s hope the 6 weeks go by super fast…better start blinking rapidly!
Now it’s time to Celebrate the Small Things! I’m joining in this fun blog hop to join some awesome bloggy friends and meet new ones – click on the badge for more information and if you’d like to play along, too!
I’m celebrating that this week is less inundated with having to drive all over kingdom come, and I can enjoy time at home for once! Of course that doesn’t mean I’m making time to unpack more boxes, I’ve been trying to get caught up on my blogging, though I’m seriously swimming upstream right now. But it’ll get done – and you’ll get visits when you least expect it!
That’s a wrap! Hope you join in the fun! Check out the other Friendly Fill-Ins participants and join in if you feel the urge for some fun!
Fridays are more fun with these blog hops:
