{TBB Asks} Keep Me Entertained

I love these TBB Asks surveys.

  1. Books you have read multiple times. I honestly never re-read books. I have read Twilight twice and I listened to the audio version of All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover after having read the book months prior. My goal is to get the audio versions of a lot of my favorite books.
  2. Favorite book/author of all time. Ha! This is a hard question because I have a lot of favorites. Books – Making Faces by Amy Harmon, It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover, The Simple Wild by K.A. Tucker, Now That You Mention It by Kristan Higgins, The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. Favorite authors – Colleen Hoover, Amy Harmon, Tarryn Fisher, Taylor Jenkins Reid, Harlan Coben, Sarah Jio, Kristan Higgins…I could keep going.
  3. Favorite TV show to binge.  I honestly don’t watch a lot of TV. But my husband and I will binge watch The Ranch on Netflix. And we’ll watch reruns of The Office and FRIENDS all the time.
  4. Favorite new-ish TV show.  I just started watching Tidying Up by Marie Kondo and I love it.
  5. Favorite movie of all time. Halloween (the original), National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation & Clueless (I can’t pick just one!)
  6. Movie you are looking forward to watching. I’d like to see the new Mary Poppins, but I can wait to rent it. Honestly, all the Disney movies coming out in the next year kind of make me excited. The new Toy Story, Aladdin…it’ll be a fun year for taking Sunnie to the movies.
  7. First concert you attended. My mom took me to the Wayne County Fair and I got to see Reba. I LOVED her (still do).
  8. Ultimate concert. Seriously, NKOTB puts on an amazing show. I have seen them many times in the past 10 years, and I’m going to see them again in May. I can’t wait! Other singers I would love to see in concert are Celine Dion (she has the most amazing singing voice imo), Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake.
  9. Favorite music/artist/band. NKOTB, Celine Dion, Christina Perri, Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake
  10. How do you listen? I use the Apple Music app and listen through my phone, usually in the car. We have a few bluetooth speakers around the house, too. Sunnie uses the music app more than me! 🙂

{TBB Asks} December – Holiday Edition

I love these TBB Asks surveys.

  1. Candy Canes? No. Unless it’s peppermint bark or made into a cookie, I’m not a fan. I won’t just eat a candy cane for fun.
  2. Christmas morning early riser or sleep in? Early riser always. My 8-year-old daughter will have me up before 6:00, which is the case most mornings anyway.
  3. Did you shop on Black Friday?  No. I usually avoid it. I hate the crowds and standing in line for anything. I did stop at Target on Thursday night and couldn’t believe how crazy busy they were. I got what I needed and got the hell outta there quickly.
  4. Christmas tree up in November?  Yes. We usually put it up the weekend before Thanksgiving.
  5. Do you get holiday ideas from Pinterest? Almost every Elf on the Shelf idea I get is from Pinterest.
  6. Christmas Glam or Ugly Sweater? Neither. I go for comfortable.
  7. Stocking Stuffers: Wrapped or Unwrapped? Wrapped. While Sunnie is still little, I wrap every little thing. But as she gets older that may change.
  8. Traditional or Modern Christmas Songs? I love it all, but I can only handle it from the day after Thanksgiving until Christmas day – any other time of year it’s a big no. One of my favorites is Michael Buble’s Christmas album.
  9. Fruitcake? I honestly don’t think I’ve ever had one, and based on how most people feel about it, I don’t want one, either.
  10. Is your Christmas shopping finished? I just ordered some more gifts this morning and plan to do the rest of my shopping this weekend. I’ve got the majority of it done.
  11. Is there snow in December where you live? Sometimes. I’m in Ohio, and the weather is never the same from year to year. Last year we did have snow (the only days I like snow is on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day). I think the few years before that it was unseasonably warm over Christmas.
  12. Classic Show: A Charlie Brown Christmas or Rudolph? Charlie Brown all the way. We love Charlie Brown in our house, in fact, Sunnie named one of our cats Charlie Brown. 🙂

{TBB Asks} November – Giving Thanks Edition

More TBB Asks fun!

  1. Have you ever kept a gratitude journal? I have one now, but I’m really bad about remembering to write in it every day.
  2. Hosting Thanksgiving at your house? No, not this year. We host my parents every other year. This year we go to my in-laws.
  3. Favorite food for Thanksgiving meal? Homemade apple & raisin stuffing.
  4. What one thing in Nature are you grateful for? I love running at the park in the fall and seeing the trees changing beautiful colors.
  5. Pumpkin Pie? I’m not a big fan. I might have one small piece but I have to eat it with whipped cream.
  6. Traditional Cookbook? I use Pinterest for all of my recipes, except for Thanksgiving dinner. I have notes from my mom and make the exact meal I had every Thanksgiving growing up. It is my favorite meal of the year (every other year).
  7. Oven-baked or Deep-fried Turkey? Oven
  8. Thanksgiving leftovers? Of course! They are the best leftovers!! We usually eat dinner at 1:00 and the best part is reheating leftovers to eat later that night. And again for lunch the next day.
  9. What is one household product you are most grateful for? Another interesting question…I am going to say my vacuum. Lol. I have a Shark that I love and use daily. #neatfreakalert
  10. Are you most grateful for home-cooked meals or restaurant meals? Definitely home-cooked. We eat at home most of the time and I definitely prefer that to going out.

{TBB Asks} October – Fall 2.0

More TBB Asks fun!

  1. Favorite Fall Color? – All of them! Reds and burnt orange if I have to choose.
  2. Apple Cider – Hot or Cold? – Hot…but if I’m drinking cider I prefer the mulled wine kind. 😉
  3. Caramel Apple – Yes or No? – Not a big fan.
  4. Pumpkin Doughnut or Apple Cider Doughnut? – I’m not a fan of pumpkin flavored anything (no PSL for me…), so I’d have to go with Apple Cider.
  5. Long or Short Cardigan? – Long. All the long cardigans. I have a ton of them.
  6. Favorite Football or Fall Party Food? – My husband likes when I make taco dip, but I really love chili this time of year.
  7. Orange or White Pumpkins? – White is interesting, but I’m going to go with the traditional orange.
  8. Hayride or Bonfire? – Bonfire as long as the bugs are all dead 😀
  9. Favorite Fall Baked Good? – Even though I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin flavored anything, my mom makes the best pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.
  10. Most Anticipated Fall Activity? This year I’m most excited to go watch the new Halloween movie. My husband has to work on opening weekend, so we’ll be going to see it the following weekend. I can’t wait!

{TBB Asks} July – Vacation Edition

More TBB Asks fun!

  1. Will you go on a summer vacation this year? – Not technically. I took my vacation last week, and it was more of a staycation where we did a lot of fun stuff locally. We saw fireworks, went swimming, went to the movies, went to a local beach/water park, and went to the lake.
  2. Do nothing but relax or pack it all in vacation? – I’d like to say do nothing but relax, but that’s the opposite of what I did last week. We had stuff going on almost every single day.
  3. What month do you like to vacation? – I take vacation twice a year. One week is always during the July 4th week and the other week is between Christmas and New Years.
  4. Cruise: Yes or No? – I’ve never been on one, and I have no desire to do one.
  5. Favorite vacation tradition? – Since we rarely go anywhere for a real vacation, the one thing I do love to do every summer is take the boat out. We take Sunnie out on the lake at least once and we try to have a day date on the lake once or twice. We had our first lake date of the summer this past weekend, and it was wonderful.
  6. Most memorable vacation? – Disney World. I’d go back every year if my husband would be on board with it. Sadly, he is not. Lol.
  7. Pack light or pack it all? – Pack as light as I can.
  8. Hotel, condo, or house? – House
  9. Favorite things to eat on vacation? – I always associate cookouts with summertime and vacation. I love grilling burgers and having all the sides with it…pasta salad, potato salad, watermelon, etc.
  10. Warm or cold destinations? I definitely prefer warmer weather and love going to the lake, beach, pool. That’s not to say that I haven’t loved the few times my husband and I have done some cabin getaways in the fall/winter when it’s cooler. Vacation is what you make of it. 😉
