friday feast

appetizer ~ describe a toy you remember from your childhood.
sit & spin! My bff Alicia had one of these babies and could I spin fast on it. Put us both on it and we would spin until we fell over. Fun times. I bought one for Amanda when she was little and somehow she wasn't as impressed as I was. It was hard to find too... I guess the toys are just different now.OH! and my friend Mandy doll that I learned to french braid on...

soup ~ on a scale of 1-10, how observant are you?
2 or 10... depends what I'm observing. I can remember what I wore 20 years ago and yet can't remember the drive I took when I arrive. Depends where my mind is at the time, but I wouldn't say being observant is one of my strengths.

salad ~ where would you rather be at this very moment?
Asleep. It's 11:36. Izzy is awake. Probably too much cake & ice cream... or too much partying :o). I would rather be asleep and pray she goes to sleep very very soon.

main course ~ when was the last time you learned something new?
Today. Everyday. I am amazed at all the new things I learn. Like today for instance, when a new recipe called for refrigerated pie crust for these cheesy chicken empanadas and I used the frozen variety and it turned to mush. So, I used refrigerated and it worked. Lesson learned, frozen pie crust doesn't work for empanadas!

desert ~ I have brothers, but I haven't any sisters.

Great feast! I loved my sit and spin too. My dad found one for my children to share and neither were as impressed with it as I remember being. It's funny how toys change! Happy Friday!

Sit and spins seemed to be kind of in between my childhood and my children's. I remember seeing them around, but we never had one. My soup is similar to yours.

BTW, how do you get those cute hearts in your comments?

How could I have possibly forgotten about the sit and spin???? Probably because I didn't have one, but I loved going to other people's houses because they had the cool toys like sit and spins! Great feast! There's a seat open at my table...come and get it!

Toy blasts from the past! I remember the Sit and Spin. I can visualize the commercial in my mind.

Your visuals are wonderful.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting my FF. Have a nice weekend.:)

Never heard of a sit and spin before. Happy belated birthday to Izzy BTW. Praise God for the blessing of her life and for all His help in your struggles in the past 3 years.Have a great weekend.

Erin said...

I love that you put pictures with your feast. Makes it very interesting : ) I'm like you, I often don't remember how I got where I am, but I remember the little details that others don't see.

Happy Friday!

Great feast! One year I found "Sit 'n Spins" at Target and got one for each of the grandkids for Christmas. They loved them! I love the pic of you with Jody and Mike!
