Sunday Social
This weeks questions:

1. What do you miss most about being a kid?
I miss everything about my childhood, but mainly how close my family once was. I miss the sleepovers and boat days. I especially miss my dad. I miss all the fun things we would do together such as feeding birds out by the river and taking walks or bike rides around the neighborhood. I think what I miss the most are the holidays. My family would decorate the house so pretty. The holidays were so amazing and full of tradition.

2. Did you have a nickname growing up? What was it?
I never had a personalized nickname, but I was called "honey", "baby" and "booboo" a lot (:

3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
My friends and I would either swing on the swings or go sit somewhere in the back of the playground where no one went and just talk!

4. What did you want to be when you grew up?
Oh gosh, I'm not kidding when I say acting has always been my only dream.

5. What was your favorite toys?
Barbies, of course!

6. What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?
My mom doesn't really remind me of anything - my dad had all the stories. I bet if he were still here, he would be reminding me of all my embarrassing moments. He was THAT DAD. Um, I can't think of anything though. Sorry guys!

Oh yes, the good ole days of the Barbie. haha! I used to love those things. My mom would get mad because their shoes would end up in the most random in the vacuum filter... :-P

Haha! I love how Barbie seems to be the childhood toy of practically everyone for that question. It's true tho, back in the day - it was a staple item for every girl.

I had barbies but I dont remember actually playing with them all that often...My elementary school only had 4 swings and they were PRIME real-estate at recess time! It was a good day if you got a turn on the swing :)

I had so many barbies but I never played with them. I would dress them up and stage them in their house but that was it. I'd switch it up every few weeks. I was a weird kid. LOL.

I loved Barbies too! And miss my family being so close. Funny how time changes things, isn't it?

Found you on the blog hop, happy to be following w/GFC.

I used to LOVE barbies and now my two year old daughter is into them. I definitely spoil her and get her all the barbies she wants. ;)

Sorry to hear that your Dad isn't around. I can only imagine how hard that is. It sounds like he was a great guy though, and that you have enough memories to last a lifetime.

I have a feeling that Barbies were the favorite toy for most of us girls growing up--to this day I remember one "Hula Hair Barbie" that I got for Christmas. The traditions of childhood are fun--in the future I definitely want to make sure that my kids get to grow up with cool traditions!

I LOVED my barbies. Sadly girls these days grow out of them way too quickly :-(

Barbie was definitely the ish. I'm thinking that little girls these days don't appreciate them the way that we did!
