Re: Hump Day Fun!

  • What is your favorite kitchen gadget that you use most often?

    Probably the kitchen knives we received...I'm always chopping up something!

    Do you make a Christmas list for your H/parents/anyone else? Anything on it yet?

    Yes I make ones for H, my parents and MIL. They all ask for a list so they have an idea of what to get me. They are usually all different things on each list so I don't end up with a ton of the same stuff.

    Nothing on it yet...I'm going to start thinking about it soon though.

    Is there anything you received as a wedding (or shower) gift that you haven't used yet, but are dying to use?

    All of our china and "fancy" flatware...its at my parents house in boxes still. We really don't have room or the need for it at our apartment so it will most likely stay there until we buy a house.

    What's your favorite type of exercise?

    Walking

    What's your favorite (non-alcohol) beverage?

    Iced coffee or water....pretty much all I ever drink.

    Would you rather be cold or hot?

    Cold. I'd rather be able to add layers or wrap up in a blanket if I'm cold.

    What is your favorite season....why?

    Spring is great, but summer is my fav, I'm a beach girl!

    How old were you when you met your best friend?

    About 5 years old. Our parents are friends and I got to know her through them and her two older sisters.

    Are you a mama's girl or a daddy's girl?

    Hard to say...a little of both, but more a Daddy's girl when I "need" something...usually money! lol

    How many children (if any) are you hoping to have?

    We'd like two kids, a boy and a girl :)

    Is there anything you received as a wedding (or shower) gift that you haven't used yet, but are dying to use?

    Diet Dr. Pepper. I know it's not the greatest thing for me, but I never keep them in the house so I only can have it when we're out.

  • What is your favorite kitchen gadget that you use most often?

    Our Paula Deen cookware set.. seriously love them!

    Do you make a Christmas list for your H/parents/anyone else? Anything on it yet?

    Yes, I used to.. but I already know what my parents are getting us.. and I will probably have to tell H's parents what I want.. not sure what I want yet, though!

    Is there anything you received as a wedding (or shower) gift that you haven't used yet, but are dying to use?

    Hmmm.. I'm not sure... we have a few kitchen things we haven't used yet that would be fun to use.. not dying to try them out though! 

    What's your favorite type of exercise?

    Wii Fit and Zumba

    What's your favorite (non-alcohol) beverage?

    I love lemonade and iced tea.

    Would you rather be cold or hot?

    Cold for sure. I feel sick when I get too hot.

    What is your favorite season....why?

    Hmm.. I feel like my favorites are changing, it used to be summer, but now I am liking Spring and Fall better. Definitely will always hate Winter!

    I was 9 or 10 :)

  • What is your favorite kitchen gadget that you use most often? Knives. I always need to cut something!

    Do you make a Christmas list for your H/parents/anyone else? Anything on it yet? Nope. We just wing it!

    Is there anything you received as a wedding (or shower) gift that you haven't used yet, but are dying to use? I haven't used any of our Le Cruset stuff yet or any bakeware (it's been too hot!)

    What's your favorite type of exercise? Zumba and cycling (outside, none of this stationary business)

    What's your favorite (non-alcohol) beverage? Iced tea (all kinds!)

    Would you rather be cold or hot? Cold, because you can always add layers

    What is your favorite season....why? Either spring (the world is coming back to life) or fall because I love the colors of leaves and listening to them crunch under my feet. Plus, I love the crisp air.

    How old were you when you met your best friend? H and I don't really have frieds we hang out with. After college everyone went their own ways. We're okay with it. The closest friend I had moved away to Colorado, so we don't get to see each other or really talk that much. Which is kind of sad really. I was in my late 20s (29 maybe?) when we met.

    Are you a mama's girl or daddy's girl? Tough to say, since I am the only daughter and between two boys. I would probably say daddy's girl.

    How many children (if any) are you hoping to have? We would like to have two. H is an only child and I have two brothers. We hope for them to be only a few years apart so they'll be close and always have someone to play with, etc. With two, it's harder for someone to feel left out.

     

  • What is your favorite kitchen gadget that you use most often?

    Keurig! I use it every day if not twice a day :)

    Do you make a Christmas list for your H/parents/anyone else? Anything on it yet?

    Nope. My parents typically just give us cash and H, I just tell him what I want :)

    Is there anything you received as a wedding (or shower) gift that you haven't used yet, but are dying to use?

    Everything that we got we've used so far.

    What's your favorite type of exercise?

    Riding bikes with H or walking the dogs

    What's your favorite (non-alcohol) beverage?

    Faygo pop is pretty amazing

    Would you rather be cold or hot?

    Cold, it is so much easier to put more layers on. You can only take so much off

    What is your favorite season....why?

    I love fall! Fall in Northern Michigan is absolutely beautiful with the leaves changing colors. Something about jeans and a sweatshirt that just feels so good! Not to mention I love Halloween :)

    How old were you when you met your best friend?

    We met in 6th grade so probably about 10

    Are you a mama's girl or a daddy's girl?

    Both :) I'm the baby of the family so I got away with a lot more than my brother and sister!

    How many children (if any) are you hoping to have?

    I go back and forth on this subject daily... some days I really want children and other days I can never picture it happening (day I'm leaning towards having children)! If we were to have any it would be two even though husband says he only wants one, I think it would be hard to be an only child at times.

    Hey, Hey Hockeytown!photo hockeytown_zps6a7377b0.jpg
  • What is your favorite kitchen gadget that you use most often? My trusty wooden spoon.  My mom had this spoon when I was little and I used it for everything growing up, regardless if it was the right tool or not.  When we bought our home, she came over with a basket of goodies and my wooden spoon with a bow on it.

    Do you make a Christmas list for your H/parents/anyone else? Anything on it yet? H and I seem to always have a "go to" list.  We typically buy each other little things throughout the year.  Since my birthday is Christmas, he tries his very hardest to seperate the two to make sure I have both to celebrate.  He's the best! 

    Is there anything you received as a wedding (or shower) gift that you haven't used yet, but are dying to use?  Nope

    What's your favorite type of exercise?  I love walking outside but during the winter that is usually a lot shorter distance.  I am a dancer from way back and still love to "borrow" the dance studio for a couple of hours every now and then.

    What's your favorite (non-alcohol) beverage?  I drink a ton of water and have started drinking flavored 0 calorie water like mad.  Can't seem to get enough of it!

    Would you rather be cold or hot?  Honestly, hot.  I am so tired of winter that I absolutely cringe at the thought in a couple of months I'll be freezing all the time again.  But then again, winter is a great time for baking and snuggling so it does have some benefits.

    What is your favorite season....why?  With my love/hate relationship with winter, I adore the fall.  Wish we could just have fall weather all winter long here.

    How old were you when you met your best friend? Well my H is my best friend - so sappy am I! (19) But my sister is definately my best friend I have known the longest.

    Are you a mama's girl or a daddy's girl?  I am by far a daddy's girl.  It's been a topic in our family for a couple of years ago, because my sister and I each knew (she is mama's girl) and our parents didn't even put such a thing on their radar. 

    How many children (if any) are you hoping to have?  we can't have children, but we do have one of each in furbabies!

    Would you rather be cold or hot?

    I'm inclined to say cold only because you can put more on than you can take off... however, I don't know what anything below 0F feels like.... I do know I can survive the oppressive heat in the South though since that's where I was raised.  Either way, I'm going to be grumpy...

    What is your favorite season....why?

    Fall is hands down THE best season of all.  I love sweater weather, fall produce, baking, the colors, the hay rides, it also means the holidays are coming!  Also, I'm down two sizes since last fall which means I need to go shopping (can't wait!!!)
