I am linking-up today with Ashley at and Neely at for Sunday Social.
What do you miss most about being a kid?

Seriously, being able to eat anything I want and never gain a pound.  I sure did love riding the go-kart around the yard (7 ½ acres).

Not the actual go kart, but pretty close.  You get the idea!

Did you have a nickname growing up?  What was it?

I am an identical twin so they used to call us by our last name Cook 1 and Cook 2.  (Like Thing 1 and Thing 2 from Dr. Seuss)  I was Cook 2 because I was born second and then my nickname gradually changed to Cookie and that is what I was called throughout high school by some, and then when I worked at Old Navy in my early twenties there were 3 Stephanie’s so I once again was called Cookie.

What was your favorite thing to do at recess?

On our playground at my elementary school we had a stand-up teeter totter.  You would stand on instead of sit and it was so much fun to see how high you could make the other person fly.  (You had to hang on to the bar so you didn’t actually go flying!)

Did you participate in any school activities?

In elementary school, I was really only in Girl Scouts and softball in the summer. Then in Fifth grade joined the band and chorus. In high school, I was busy almost every night with Volleyball, Marching Band (believe it or not it took up a lot of time all year long), Show Choir, Softball, Girl Scouts (yes I still did it in high school there was only four of us and I got a college scholarship because of it), and going to school sporting events.

What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?

I can’t really think of anything that my parents reminisce about.  I am 1 of 5 kids and there is an age span of 14 years from the first to the last so my parents were always busy.



  • Oh man, it was fantastic when we could eat whatever we wanted and not gain weight!! I wasn’t a huge junk food eater as a kid but I did love sugar soda… man, those days are gone 🙂

      It was great when we could eat whatever. I miss those days of having seconds and sometimes thirds. I really miss McDonald’s cheeseburgers and French fries every Friday.

    Ahhh!!! My grandad got me a go-cart when I was 7, I loved it! I bet I put 200,000 miles on it before I grew out of it. I’m stopping by from the hop & I’m a new follower through BlogLovin.

      We used our go-kart so much we actually wore the steering wheel out and it broke off. My dad ended up screwing a piece of wood on as the new steering wheel. That made it a very country go-kart!
