Have you ever kept a gratitude journal? I have one now, but I’m really bad about remembering to write in it every day.
Hosting Thanksgiving at your house? No, not this year. We host my parents every other year. This year we go to my in-laws.
Favorite food for Thanksgiving meal? Homemade apple & raisin stuffing.
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.
Pumpkin Pie? I’m not a big fan. I might have one small piece but I have to eat it with whipped cream.
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).
Oven-baked or Deep-fried Turkey? Oven
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.
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
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.
Favorite Fall Color? – All of them! Reds and burnt orange if I have to choose.
Apple Cider – Hot or Cold? – Hot…but if I’m drinking cider I prefer the mulled wine kind. 😉
Caramel Apple – Yes or No? – Not a big fan.
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.
Long or Short Cardigan? – Long. All the long cardigans. I have a ton of them.
Favorite Football or Fall Party Food? – My husband likes when I make taco dip, but I really love chili this time of year.
Orange or White Pumpkins? – White is interesting, but I’m going to go with the traditional orange.
Hayride or Bonfire? – Bonfire as long as the bugs are all dead 😀
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Cruise: Yes or No? – I’ve never been on one, and I have no desire to do one.
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.
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.
Pack light or pack it all? – Pack as light as I can.
Hotel, condo, or house? – House
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.
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. 😉
Musical or Play? – Musical (but honestly, neither)
Which meal of the day is your favorite to eat out? – Breakfast
Favorite book ever read? – This is like asking someone with multiple children who their favorite kid is. I have so many favorites, it’s hard to narrow it down. How about favorite authors instead? Colleen Hoover, Amy Harmon, Tarryn Fisher, Kristan Higgins, Taylor Jenkins Reid
Game Night: Yes or No? – No, not really. I play the occasional game with Sunnie, but my husband isn’t a fan of board or card games.
Favorite outside game to play? – Does running count?? 😀
Favorite TV Series Ever? – FRIENDS (The Office is a close second)
Sitcoms Growing Up or Sitcoms of Today? – Definitely growing up. I enjoy a few shows on TV today, but they are nothing like the shows I loved from my childhood. 90210, Party of Five, Dawson’s Creek, Felicity, FRIENDS, Mad about You, Roseanne (the original), Full House…there were just so many great shows back then!
Miniature Golf or Bowling? – Bowling, although I’m terrible at it
Favorite Movie Theater Candy? – I don’t get candy when I go to the movies, because holy expensive! But, when I was a kid and frequented the movie theater almost every weekend, I loved Sno-Caps.
How do you like your popcorn? – Plain, little to no butter (boring, I know)
3D Movies with Glasses: Yes or No? – Never seen one!
Favorite Genre of Books to Read? – Adult Contemporary (with Romance)
