It’s Friday, Friday… can I get a whoot, whoot!?
All right, let’s get down to business… answering a few questions… I’d love to hear your answers, too…
1. What’s the last thing you spent too much money on?
I can’t think of a particular thing I spent too much money on. I certainly spent a lot of money on plane tickets for Australia – but whether it’s too much, that’s a matter of perspective. I do spend too much money any time I go to Costco or Target, but I think I’m in good company there. I think that restaurant drinks are way over-priced and since I did go out to eat this week and got a beer (shhh… don’t tell my mom), I’d say that was the thing I spent too much money on.
2. What celeb chef would you want to make you dinner?
This is a hard one… really, any of them because the food would be amazing. My favorites for their personality would be Bobby Flay (pretty sure he wouldn’t try his womanizing moves on me), Mario Batalli (who doesn’t love a cheery, round Italian?) or Guy Fieri (I’d love to see his hair in person). I can tell you who the chef would NOT be? Paula Dean. I don’t mind her at all, but the hubs can’t stand her. But really, if ANY celebrity chef wanted to come and make me dinner, I’ll take it! I dream of being a judge on Iron Chef America – unless the secret ingredient is something hideous like sweetbreads or peas.
3. Where do you hide things when visitors pop over or do you let them see the real deal?
I’m a 50/50 mix, since the boys’ rooms are downstairs, most the toys get stowed away in their rooms, but I do also tuck them inside the gate that surrounds our TV. The front closet gets a lot of things thrown into it but I need to work on not doing that as it’s rather frightening to open at the moment. For the kitchen – I will put dirty dishes in the oven (just don’t forget and preheat it with them in there, I’ve made that mistake) but if there are clean dishes in the drainer, I leave them. My friends are all moms just like me and they understand when the house is less than perfect (which is always, BTW).
4. Who is your oldest living family member?
I believe that would be my Uncle Chet (see below). He’s my mom’s oldest brother and he lives in northern Wisconsin in a very small town where he was the veterinarian. When I was growing up, I loved going to visit he and my Aunt Sharon and last summer we got to road trip out there to visit with my parents and the boys – so fun! But a word to the wise, don’t beat him at cribbage, he tends to get upset when this happens.
5. What is your favorite DQ treat and/or Sonic drink combo (ie: cherry vanilla dr. pepper)?
At DQ – the George Mud Fudge blizzard with chocolate soft serve and extra pecans. At Sonic, cherry limeade slushie or grape cream slush. We were SO excited when two Sonics opened up in our town recently – before that the closest ones were across the border in Indiana, even though they showed Sonic commercials for years before they opened (so strange). We also get commercials for Dave and Busters and I think there is one 2+ hours away – why is this?
I hope everyone has a great weekend – please take a moment to answer a question in the comments – I’d love to see what your answers are… maybe we can go get a DQ treat together?
