friday feast


What is your favorite herb or spice?
garlic and Italian spices


Name a song you like but haven’t heard in a long time.

Lean On Me


If you were to take just one minute to write down as many things as you can think of that you need (not want) to do, approximately how many things would there be?
1.Get all the laundry done...haha that's a dream
2.Clean out all the closets
3.Go through all the old toys and give away what the kids don't want any more
4.Finish the back porch
5.Way too many things to put down...there's always something to be done around here:)
Main Course

Tell something interesting about one of your family members (nothing scandalous, please, just something unique).
My husband has been going through our family tree and found out that they belong to the Huguenot Society. Only a direct male of the family and their children can become members. I can join but only as a spouse. He also found some really cool necklaces that are from the Huguenots.Go here to see the necklaces.


What’s the latest you’ve ever stayed awake?
Probably about 2 or 3 in the morning when i was in high school. Now I only stay up until about 10-10:30. Gotta get that beauty sleep.:)

monday madness

1. From jstar: Holiday in Europe or Asia?Have never been to either place but would love to go some day:)
2. From sherle: How do you try to change a behavior pattern you don't like about yourself... whether it's chewing fingernails, overeating, smoking, or picking your nose? I really focus on whatever problem it is and try to over come it. Never really bit my nails, haven't smoked and don't ever want to,picking your nose eeeewwwwww.Overeating is a problem that comes with stress around here.I try to drink more water instead of eating.
3. From tricia: Have you ever successfully completed a Sudoku puzzle?No. My daughter and dad have though. They love math... math and I don't get along:)
4. From caylynn: What website do you visit the most often? I have a lot of websites i visit. Don't really have one that i visit more than others.
5. From michael morgan: What was your favorite thing about high school or college?High school....hmmmm....I enjoyed it when i was able to drive...Enjoyed my senior year the most i guess. Has been awhile since i've thought about high school.Was engaged my freshman year of college but that didn't work out. Thank goodness. Am happy with the husband i have now wouldn't trade him for anything.

friday feast #112

Measured in minutes or hours, how much exercise have you had in the last week?
30 minutes a day. We try to go to the gym as many nights as we can.
If you had to change your blog title to something else, what would it be?
Am not sure. I had a difficult time coming up with the one i have. Would like to change it though.
Name one television show you watched when you were 9-12 years old.
Was trying to think what TV shows were on when i was 9-12...... I think Remmington Steele was on then. I watched that all the time:) Gotta love Pierce Brosnan.:)
Main Course
If someone gave you $50 to spend with the one condition that it had to be educational, what would you purchase?
Would probably buy books for the kids since all the girls love to read and our son is just now starting to read.
Do you tend to prefer dark colors, neutral shades, or lighter/pastel hues?
I like the fall, some browns, teal, not so much of the oranges though.

Our weekend

My Hubby,Dad and daughter and other daughter's boyfriend went to a cubs game on Saturday and this is how close to the field they were.They had a great time!!!!! They got to eat at Grand Central Station after riding the train to Chicago. The weather was beautiful and the Cubs won!!!!!!! What a great present for my Dad who has been a Cub fan since i can remember.My daughter even got her picture put on the Cubs website for the fan photos with our middle daughter's boyfriend. I'd say their day was perfect.

The rest of us left at the house got to go to the mall and shop for homecoming dresses for our freshman and senior girls. We had a ball. The only one that didn't like the day that much was our 6 year old son. He was very good though and got to pick out a toy at KB toys for being so good. Today, if the rain holds off, we are going to watch my oldest daughter march in a parade and then go to the apple orchard. We're praying for another nice day. The weather has been perfect since my parents came to visit.
