5 Question Friday

My friend Brooke posted this with a challenge to do the same, so here goes:

1. Do you have any nicknames and if so, how did it come about?
My obvious nickname is Mandy (from Amanda), but the other one is Mando. This came from my years as a Berkner High School Bandelero (Bando). So in high school I was Mando the Bando. Mando stuck with my family members and a few others.

2. What is your birth order amongst your siblings?
I am the dreaded "middle child" with none of the middle child hangups - ha ha (I'm sure they would disagree)! I have an older sister (by 3 years) and a younger brother (by 4 years). I love being a middle child and think it is the best place to be - not the Type A "anal" perfectionist first sibling and not the "spoiled baby" of the family (not that my siblings are either of those things - ha ha). Just perfect! :)

3. In a movie of your life, who would play your significant other?
Sean Connery in his younger James Bond years because my husband has the Scottish accent perfected.

4. What is currently your favorite song?
Hmmm...that is a tough one since I listen to kids' songs the most these days. I'm a huge Backyardigans fan - love "Robot Rampage" or "Pirate Says Arggh."

5. Are you saving your money for anything right now? Big or small purchase?
Sort of. We (by we, I mean me) are hoping to get a new couch next year. It is becoming a desperate situation since ours is falling apart and looks disgusting after 2 kids have attacked it.
