TBB Asks, August 2017

Hello Monday, Hello Back to school!

It’s here, our first day of the 2017-2018 school year. I can’t believe it is finally here. I’m excited, nervous, and a bit anxious over how this first week will go. I feel like it sets the tone for our entire year, even though I know that isn’t true. So think a happy thought and say a little prayer today if you think of us. 

I had so much fun linking up for The Blended Blog Asks last month that I knew I had to join again when Andrea invited me. These question are so simple and fun. It’s the perfect way to get to know a little more about the blogger behind the blog and a super easy read for a Monday morning. Because Mondays are hard enough, especially on the first day of school, keeping things simple is always best.

Take a look at my answers to the questions and feel free to grab the graphic and play with The Blended Blog ladies if you would like. 

1) Pool, lake or ocean? Ocean
2) Camping, cottage or hotels? Hotels
3) Favorite ice cream flavor? Cookie dough
4) PJ’s, Nightgown, T-Shirt/Shorts or Birthday Suit? Depends on the season and how hot or cold I am that night.
5) Fave Summer Beverage? Iced coffee with Almond Joy creamer in it. 

6) Would you rather be hot or cold? Hot… I think. 
7) Sandals with heels or flats? Flats. Being 5’10” I rarely wear heels.
8) Shorts or skirts? For the most part, shorts. 
9) Sit in the sun or the shade? Both. I like to alternate or sit in the shade with my legs in the sun. 
10) Water, tea, or soda?  Water with fruit in it. 

11) Fave summer fruit, vegetable I seriously can’t pick a fruit. I love so many, so much. Vegetable would probably be tomatoes though.
12) Sunrise or sunset? Both!
13) Bike ride or walk? Bike ride please.
14) Winery or brewery? As much as I want to say winery, I’m a brewery girl through and through. 
15) Garden or no garden? Garden. I have missed my garden SO much this year and it makes me sad to think I could’ve planted it. 

16) Big summer concert or music in the park? Nothing beats a big concert with your ears ringing the next day. 
17) Fave cookout food? Desserts, all of them. 
18) Dine indoors or patio? I don’t like flies, indoors please. 
19) Favorite summer destination? The pool! 
20) Big theme park or local carnival? Big theme park

    HA ha, I love your comment about a concert where your ears ring the next day. That’s awesome!! Happy first day of school! I need a first day photo of the girls please. 🙂

    • Confession… I didn’t take official photos today. I was going to but Marissa is getting her hair chopped on Wednesday and I wanted to wait until that happened :).

  • You are such a rebel my friend – hotdog, hamburger? CHEESEBURGER! Love it!!! You said pineapple woo hoo!

    • I mean, who eats a burger without cheese?!?! Not this girl.

  • I will be thinking of you all this week as you head back to school. I love back to school time! I also loved your cheeseburger answer…I will be thinking of that all. day. long! Happy Monday!

    • Haha! Guess what I had for dinner, not even kidding!

  • My favorite is cookie dough too. Happy back to school!

  • Ooooo, this is fun! Cookie dough is my favorite ice cream flavor, too. Hope it’s a great first day back to school! XOXO

    • It was a pretty great day over all. We can totally do this!

  • I would totally miss my garden too- imagine the garden you could have on the new property!!!!

    • I also imagine the critters that will want to eat all of it and the insanely rocky soil that I have to deal with. Surely I could do some raised beds and use some kind of wire though….

  • I don’t like flies 😉 We don’t have a fly issue in Ohio. Like you can eat outside and not worry about them. I don’t know why this is, but I’m not complaining. It wasn’t like that in Texas.

    • What the heck?! That is crazy around here you don’t see any flies until you try to eat something outside :P.

  • I love to read these posts and learn a little more about my friends!! I agree on the water with fruit in it! So refreshing!! I love that your favorite cookout food is the desserts…YES! Why didn’t I think of that? Haha!

    • Baha ha! My mind always goes to dessert…. always!

  • Also, have a wonderful first day back to school.

  • Yes for cookie dough! So very tasty! Water with fruit in it is quite tasty! Also hope you and the girls had a great first (half) day back!

    • It was a wonderful day friend. Thank you so much for the happy wishes!

  • Heather Bramlett

    Happy First Day of School!!
    We had so many of the same answers!!

    • Thank you! I love seeing things in common with others. These little interviews have totally been a favorite of mine!

  • I think you and I might be twinners. Hotels, flats not heels, oceans and not being cold! all things I would say. I don’t love being hot, but cold is waaay worse for me. My husband says that is because I need more body fat…..

    • Baha ha! I definitely think we could be twins for sure. My reason for being cold is probably the same! I need to move out your way to keep warm.

    We love cookie dough ice cream, too! We’ve been on a quest to find the best one this summer. You can’t go wrong with cheeseburgers and desserts. I can’t wait to see the garden you end up planting at your new house!! It’s going to be great. You’ll have to start mapping it out now when you’re missing your garden so you’re ready to go next year.

    • That sounds like the best quest ever. I need to know what y’all decide on girl. I am really worried about a garden at the new place. SO many critters. I have a feeling they would enjoy it far more than I would.
