Hello Loves and Hello 4th of July Eve! Haha! I've already told y'all that Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays, right? Like, it ranks right up in the top three no doubt! So today, I'm linking up with the Blended Blog Babes for a "post that nearly writes itself" - said someone, but I can't remember who? The questions are fun and I so enjoy the summer prompts this time of year when I seem to be in a writing slump (even though I have more time on my hands this time of year than any other!). Here are my answers!
1. Favorite Animal
I have a thing for pandas. Ever since we saw the Chinese pandas at the Memphis zoo a few years ago, I've just thought they were so cute and cuddly.
2. Wine or beer
Definitely wine. My favorite is Kendall Jackson Chardonnay. No beer at all. Bleh!
3. Socks on/off while sleeping
No socks. My husband on the other hand...
4. One piece or two piece swimsuit
A two piece for laying out by the pool with my girlfriends, but a one piece with family and friends. And a cute cover up, too!
5. Cooking at home or eating out
This one is hard because I enjoy both. I love entertaining and having friends over. I also love our family night dinners out with our girls and date night with my man. I guess I would have to say that I really like both!
6. Pepsi or Coke
Y'all already know the answer to this one. It really ticks me off when we go to a restaurant and all they serve is Pepsi products! And THEN when they say that they don't serve sweet tea, that just about sends me over the edge. That's normally when I jump back on the water wagon. I'm a Diet Coke girl through and through!
7. Regular or electric toothbrush
I JUST started using an electric toothbrush, y'all. I guess I'm just old school and I've just always used what worked. The verdict is still out. When Alise got her braces last week, the ortho gave her an electric toothbrush, which I thought was strange that she can't have things like chips and popcorn, but she can use an electric toothbrush on her braces? Weird.
8. Candy or chocolate
9. Coffee or tea
10. Music or talk radio
11. Chick flick, action movie, or documentary
I prefer a chick flick or a great drama
12. Regular or mechanical pencil
The accounting nerd in me is coming out: just give me a great No. 2 pencil!
13. Swimming or laying out
Laying out with friends with an adult beverage in my hand. Always.
14. Dog or cat
Dog. We have a schnauzer named Jack. I'm debating on whether or not to include him in the family picture this year. What do you think?
15. What do you drive? SUV, van, or sedan?
16. Early bird catches the worm or night owl?
I'm a morning person. I mean, I do stay up late, but I also like to get up early and start my day.
17. If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? This is a hard question for me. It would be a toss up between tacos and spaghetti. I tell my tribe all the time that we're Italexican!
18. While sleeping, phone with you or another room?
Phone beside me on my nightstand. Sometimes I turn the ringer off and sometimes I leave it on. Now that I have a daughter in another country, the ringer stays on more during the night.
19. Singing in the shower, yes or no?
Definitely no. But the TV in our bedroom is close to our bathroom, so I may be known for cranking up the 80s channel while I'm taking a shower and getting ready.
20. Oreo cookies: eat whole, pull apart, or dip in milk?
Love this question. It's been years since I've dunked Oreos in milk. That use to be my go-to snack after walking two miles when I was on the Weight Watcher diet about fifteen years ago. However, my favorite way to enjoy Oreos now is in homemade ice cream! What can I say?
I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL 4th of July holiday! We are so blessed as a nation and I pray that God continues to bless the USA!!
