Sunday Social

Clearly, I don't act like an adult most of the time, now.

1. What do you miss most about being a kid?
 Umm, everything!  Haha, no I am kidding, kind of.  
This calls for a bulleted list:
  • Sundays at my Mammaw and Papaw's house
  • Sleepovers 
  • Eating whatever I wanted
  • Living without a care 
  • Changing my career daily based on whatever I was pretending to be
  • The tire swing at my aunt's house (it isn't there anymore)
  • Camping and 4-wheeling (<does that make me a redneck?)
  • Being able to ride every ride at the county fair and NOT get sick.
  • Cartoons
  • TGIF, does anyone remember that on Friday nights?  My family always ordered pizza and settled in for the night.
  • With that being said, the following TV shows: Full House, Boy Meets World, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and Family Matters. 
  • This pretty much sums me and my childhood up.
2. Did you have a nickname growing up? What was it?
K-K- Dad's family
Punkie- Dad
Katie-did- Papaw 
3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess?

Let me first start by saying recess equipment used to be a lot more dangerous.  I loved the death wheel aka the Merry-Go-Round.  We would run as fast as we could to get it going as fast as our little legs could manage and then try to jump on.  Lord forbid you fall, because you were sure to be pummeled.
4. What did you want to be when you grew up?

A teacher mostly, but I was ALWAYS pretending to be different things.  
5. Did you participate in any school activities?

Dance Team, Tennis Team, and Cross Country.
6. What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?

I don't know that it is funny, but it is something I distinctly remember and something that gets talked about all the time, still.  The time I fell asleep under the bed and no one could find me and everyone panicked.

  1. Oh I still watch Boy Meets World when it comes on! Did you hear about the spin off Girl Meets World? idunno man, its just not the same

    I've never heard of anyone calling grandparents mammaw and papaw, how cute!

    I've never been on a merry-go-round but they sound scary!

  2. Aww I miss sleepover's too. And I miss the good cartoons that where on growing up

  3. I still have sleepovers, I don't feel that grown up! I love the first photo, how did you do it!?!?! CUTE!

  4. Stopping over from Sunday Social :) I totally remember TGIF. I miss that! Friday was always family night and my parents would pass out at like 8pm and my brother and I would stay up and be scandalous and watch like "20/20" and feel like rebels. The good old days...

  5. Stopping over from Sunday Social!! I loved those TV shows I remember watching them in my Mom's bed on a friday night! I miss sleepovers too!! I think as adults we should be able to have adult sleep overs! I'm a new follower, love your blog! - Kelly

  6. I so completely remember those death wheels... erm.. merry-go-rounds. My most (and least) favourite things on the playground!

  7. Cute blog ~ luv your pics ~ & luv that you are still having FUN!!!!!!! Way to go girlfriend!!! :)

  8. Yes to TGIF!! Did you also watch Snick? Those were the good ole days!

  9. Sleepovers were the best! And I friggin' loved those merry-go-rounds! My sister once fell asleep INSIDE her toy chest and I definitely called 911...

    Happy Sunday! :)

  10. Sleepovers were the absolute best...along with Full House haha!

  11. I loved all those shows, especially Boy Meets World. I actually still watch the re-runs! New follower from the Sunday Social. If you get a chance, stop on over and say hi!


  12. Oh my gosh! How could I forget about sleepovers and Full House? I still remember the theme song and will probably sing it for the rest of the day (I say this each time someone mentions Full House too. I keep being drawn back to your blog each week! Now you've gotten yourself a new follower! I hope you enjoy your week!

  13. I loved the Merry Go Round. We used to run really fast and jump on. The fun really started when we jumped off too. Much fun and boo-boos to be had on the playground.


  14. I loved watching Full House! My sister had to buy the boxed sets as soon as the came out :)

  15. I wanted to be a teacher as well & I loved the merry-go-round.
    I'd stay on the merry-go-round until I got sick!

  16. I really liked TGIF even though I was a bit older than the target audience age! Those were some classic TV shows.

  17. I miss old shows too! Luckily Full House reruns are still on and I own all of the DVDs.

    After my singer phase, I also wanted to be a teacher haha.

  18. I was another TGIF watcher!! I am so excited for the Boy Meets World spin off that is coming next month. :)

  19. Yay TGIF! I loved Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and still watch the reruns. Your merry-go-round story cracked me up. They took ours out at school because the boys used to play your game and someone broke an arm or leg. The one at the park was still there though so they got to try again in a setting with even less supervision. ;-)
