Five Question Friday!



1. Do you prefer cotton, silk, or flannel sheets?

Cotton in the summer and flannel in the winter. I really like soft sheets and silk just hasn't done it for me. It gets all sticky and blah. No thanks! Speaking of sheets, I really need to buy a new set soon. It has been far too long!

2. What time zone are you in?

Eastern, although after six years I am still getting used to the shows being on later! I grew up in Central time zone and I think my body will always think it should be that!

3. What is your favorite part of the holiday season?

Ohhhh, I like a lot of it! I love cooking (thanks Mom and Grandma for teaching me!), decorating my house and of course buying my family presents. Fletcher is especially fun to buy for! This year I will have TWO little guys to buy for! Can't wait! 

4. What is your favorite "wintry" drink? (It doesn't have to be an "alcoholic" drink!)

Hot chocolate, warm apple cider, and WINE!

5. In your opinion, what is the worst job in the world?

Most of the jobs on Dirty Jobs, or being a banker. I just could NOT handle that.

Five Question Friday!



1. Where do you escape to when you've had enough?

I haven't really had to yet. I guess my husband and I go out for dinner while my parents watch Fletcher. That always recharges my batteries! 

2. What shows are you watching this fall?

I LOVE fall shows! My favorite is still Grey's Anatomy, but I also watch Modern Family, Up All Night, Big Bang, Parks and Rec, Criminal Minds...and I am sure there is more. Yes, I know this is a lot but it is what I do to wind down at the end of the day! 

3. What was the longest roadtrip you've ever taken and where did you go?

My Mom, Aunt and I went from Colorado to New Mexico and then from New Mexico to Texas and all the way up to Minnesota. It was a long drive, but memories I will never forget. It is one of the last times I had seen my Aunt Patty before she passed away. 

4. Do you plan on taking your kids to Disney World?

I am sure we will go at least once, although I really don't have that much interest. I prefer other type of vacations, but a kid has to experience Disney, right?

5. What is something people would surprised to know about you?

Hmm, that I want a big family. Maybe that isn't surprising. That I still have my baby blanket from when I was a baby. I love it, even though it looks like Swiss Cheese!

Wordless Wednesday


Friday, October 14, 2011



1. Do you prefer your ice cream in a bowl or in a cone?

Depends on the day. I just prefer ice cream...every single day. It is my favorite food so however it is served is just fine by me! Yum! 

2. What three things do you love the smell of?

My child after a bath (mmm, Baby Magic),

 my dog's paws (they smell like Fritos!), and the scent of a new car. Mmm, my van still has that smell! Also, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the smell of an ice rink. Brings back lots of memories!



3. Giftcards or no? (In regards to gift giving...)

Yes, I love getting them and I love to give them. I do however give another gift with them most of the time so the person isn't just getting a gift card. I like to put some thought into gifts!

4. What sports did you play in high school if any and do you still play them?

Hockey, tennis and softball but hockey was my true love. I really want to get back into playing it once my baby boy is born. Being a goalie is so much fun!

5. Were you in band in high school? What instrument did you play?

I played the French Horn for all of three lessons. I can't remember why I stopped, but I did. I never was much into band, but I sure hope my kids are!

Five Question Friday!

We are currently on a small vacation in Minnesota visiting my family, but little man is taking a nap and the rest of the gang is getting ready. So, I had some time to do a little FQF!



1. What is your go to comfort food or sweet?

My mom's spaghetti or a big piece of cheesecake. Mmm, both make this Mama feel good! 

2. What is the most romantic place you've ever been to?

Well, most likely Kauai Hawaii even though it wasn't romantic for me. I see the potential though. Matt and I need to go on vacation there! 

3. What is your favorite thing about fall/Halloween?

Seeing Fletcher in his Halloween costume. He looks so darn cute! I also really like decorating, and ooooh the candy! I am a big fan of candy! 

4. How would you spend 24 hours alone?

Bath, coffee, crappy TV, a book, wine, and bath again. Yes, please! 

5. Does you husband bring you flowers? Are you the bring-me-flowers type of girl?

He does from time to time and I love it. Anything sweet and thoughtful makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. :)
