TBB Asks, July 2017

Happy almost the 4th of July friends!

I hope your weekend was lots of fun and that you are among the lucky ones whose weekend is still going.

I had pretty much decided I wasn’t going to post today, and then my friends over at The Blended Blog shared this…

It is such a simple and fun getting to know you questionnaire that I decided to change my original plans so I could join the fun. 

1. Favorite animal? Panda Bear
2. Wine or beer? Beer
3. Socks on/off while sleeping? Anytime I go to bed with them on, I wake up with the off. So, apparently off.
4. One piece or two piece bathing suit? Two, but preferably my stomach is covered.
5. Cooking at home or eating out? I love to eat out… but on average we only eat out once a month.

6. Pepsi or Coke? Neither. If I drink soda, a very rare occasion, it is sprite.
7. Regular or electric toothbrush? Regular
8. Candy or chocolate? Depends on my mood, but usually chocolate.
9. Coffee or tea? COFFEE
10. Music or talk radio? Music

11. Chick flick, action movie or documentary? Action movie, no hesitation.
12. Regular or mechanical pencil? Regular, with an electric sharpener close by.
13. Swimming or laying out? Both! Layout until I am hot, hop in the pool to cool off, repeat!
14. Dog or cat? Dog
15. What do you drive? SUV, van or sedan? Honda Pilot, SUV

16. Early bird catches the worm or night owl? Early bird, but lately I am neither really. Up at 6 & in bed around 10. 
17. If you could eat only one food for the rest of your life what would it be? I am torn between pizza and tacos… or donuts!
18. While sleeping: Phone in room by your side or phone in another room? In my room on my nightstand.
19. Singing in the shower, yes or no? No
20. Oreo cookies, Eat whole? Take apart and/or dunk? Leave whole and dunk.

Go ahead and answer one or two of these questions in the comments so I can get to know a little more about you!

Have a great Fourth of July tomorrow!
I’ll be back with my July Goals on Wednesday!

    Those are such fun questions!! Love them and I learned a few things about you. I’d struggle with food to eat too. There’s so many I like.

    • SO many. I could add chips and dip to that list too. It was a really fun and random questionnaire.

  • Three boys and a girl blog

    I’m with you on all the coffee. I also can’t stand wearing socks to bed, and if I do they end up off so no point in wearing. Pizza, tacos and donuts are all my favs..how do you choose? ha

    • Right?! And then I am digging socks out of the sheets, lol! I dont think I ever could, they are all so good.

  • I don’t like socks in bed either. Getting up at 6 seems like you are a morning person to me!

    • I feel like it is so late since I used to wake up even earlier!

  • I would definitely still consider 6am an early bird. πŸ™‚ I honestly just want a life where I can wake up when I’m done sleeping and fall asleep when I’m tired…oh wait…will that be retirement??? I sure hope so. Haha One of the younger teams in Dillon’s baseball organization has been in Joplin this week! We will have to mark our calendars for a meetup for sure in the summer of 2019…that is the year Dillon will come there to play. Hope you guys have a super 4th!

    • Oh good. I used to wake up at 4:45 and THAT was probably insane more than early. Probably not even then, there will always be things to do. 2019 seems SO far away but I know it will be here before I know it. So fun that they came to Joplin. I wonder if they played at Joe Becker, it is RIGHT by my husbands work. It is a really nice ball park that was just remodeled a couple of years ago. A minor league team was there for a couple years but now it sits empty most of the time.

  • I would consider 6am early bird too! That’s early for most people. I never would have guessed you drove a Honda Pilot, the car I’m considering as soon as Mini Fox can get in her own seat and buckle herself in. One day…one day. Hope you have a great 4th of July!

    • Oh good. So glad I can still claim the early bird. mine is an 07 so it isn’t new anymore. But I payed cash for it when I got it back a few years ago and that felt pretty darn good!

  • What a fun post! I am not surprised you’re a fan of action movies…given your love of all things speed and racing! πŸ™‚ I’m a rom com girl all the way. Pizza and tacos would both be delicious for the rest of my life, but I think I’d choose potatoes if I could only eat one food. There are so many ways to fix them and I really don’t ever want to live without them! πŸ™‚

    Whitney @ Come Home For Comfort

    • If people really know me that one wouldn’t surprise them at all, good job friend! Potatoes, you are truly a genius. Can I change my answer and eat potatoes forever with you?!

  • Katie Mitchell

    So fun!! Pizza and tacos are both great answers…
    I am the same with soda! Don’t drink much but like Sprite too…I try to stay away from dark soda! Great getting to know you better Beth!!

    • Yes! I am the same way. The only way I do dark soda is if it is root beer and that hopefully involves ice cream too ;). Thank you!

  • My husband is a talk radio kind of guy. I just don’t get it…

    Amen on the 2 piece stomach covering swimsuits!

    Happy almost 4th of July!

    • I am totally with you on the not getting it too.

      I hope y’all had a great 4th. I have had your sweet girl and family on my heart and in my prayers.

  • We are totally twinning on the carbonated beverages answer. I don’t drink Coke or Pepsi either… I tend to go for Sprite, too, in the rare event that I drink a soft drink! I love Coke but I don’t do caffeine very well. And fun fact, Atlanta claims that Coke was invented there, but technically it was invented in our little city where I live. I’ve been to the exact house where the formula was created! Have a happy 4th, friend!

    • What does caffeine do to you? I don’t do caffeine well either! I always have to chug a big glass of water before I have my coffee. It makes me really shaky and spazzy. I hate that it does that to me! Such a fun story!

      • Same for me! It makes me shaky and turns me into a spazz, too! That’s exactly what I always tell everybody at work… that it makes me spazz out! Lol.

        • Just one more thing we have in common I suppose :).

  • I love this!! πŸ™‚ Totally more of a wine girl myself, and Pepsi (well Diet Pepsi) all the way!

    • Thanks friend. I hope you had a great 4th.

  • I’m definitely a wine gal and I’m not a Pepsi gal at all. I also have a SUV but I think a van will be our next vehicle.

    • I just can’t do the van. Although, I do see how moms would like them with little tiny kiddos. The level to the ground sliding doors could totally have their perks.

  • Whitney Jordan

    I’m with you on the oreos – whole & dunked is the way to go. Sign me up for pizza, tacos and donuts πŸ™‚ Sound delicious. Maybe you can add a dog to the fam after you new house is done. I bet the girls would be THRILLED!

    • I have thought a lot about that. We may have to add up the estimated expenses and consider getting one…. eeeekkkk. That just seems crazy. I haven’t had a pet in FOREVER!

  • Ummm…I would say 6 is early!! How early did you used to get up?? I do like tacos but pizza would win if calories didn’t count… Nice to meet you!

    • I used to get up at 4:45! Although that may be more insane rather than early?! Pizza could have more variety too if I didn’t just have to pick one kind! Thank you.

  • What a fun little “getting to know you” questionnaire. Well, when we hang out we’ll have to eat tacos, pizza and donuts to celebrate πŸ˜€

    • That sounds like the best celebration, ever!

  • thanks for linking up with us! Loved this questionnaire because it’s always fun to learn random tidbits about people.

    • Yes it is! This was so random and fun, loved it!

  • Oreos – leave whole and dunk. YES!

    • Russ doesn’t get the dunking thing…. I think he is crazy.

  • Yes to the Oreo’s being dunked, and the regular pencil with an electric sharpener being nearby. I am picky about my pencils, Ticonderoga only πŸ™‚ Hahahaha! What a fun post! Happy 4th of July!

    • LOVE it. I am the same. Although I can do some of the pretty ones from Target, but ONLY with a good electric sharpener.

  • I’m so glad you participated- loved learning more about you- especially the socks.

    • Hehe! It was so fun and random, loved it.

  • Such a fun “about me” post!!
    And I’m a cat person. Dogs are just so much work. Rudy is literally the less neediest creature on the planet.

    • I used to be a cat person…. then I discovered I only like some cats and I am terrified of getting one I HATE!

  • Lizzie Simantz

    So fun!! Right there with you on the coffee and the pizza, or tacos, I couldn’t decide on that!

  • Leave whole and dunk….yes! Donuts for sure! I bet you could so rock a two piece you’re middle has to be TINY! XOXOX

    • Oh my goodness, you just made me blush. Hahaha! Thank you friend. That makes me feel good. I would have for sure a year or two ago. Lately, I just prefer to keep things covered.

  • Oh how fun! I know I missed this post because of vacation, but I want to do this anyhow.  Loved reading this and learning more about you. Super impressive that you guys only eat out about once a month. We really need to cut back. Pizza would definitely be the food I chose and I prefer wine over beer. I just haven’t acquired a taste for beer.

    • I kinda feel that way about wine. I am just a simple kind of gal who is content with a can of coors in her hand. You should totally do this post. It was fun.
