Blogger Q&A - random things about me

Monday, July 3, 2017

Look ma, I'm participating!!!

Yes, we're all aware of slacker status in blog-land so because of that I decided to spontaneously hop aboard the Blended Blog's "Summer Love" series by taking part in today's post - go me!

If we're being honest, which I am, cause that's how I roll, my motivation for participation may or may not have to do with the fact it's pre-done questions that will guide my post and hopefully not require too much brain power from this utterly spent momma. Also, I do like things like this where simple questions elicit interesting answers and explanations allowing you to see a little more into someone's personality... or maybe I just read too much into things.

Right, moving along...

heads-up, the questions are mostly yes/no or one-word answer but if you've been here before, you already know that's not my jam lol

Here goes:

  1. Favorite animal?
    This is one of those questions you would think that everyone has a quick and easy answer too, but I've never really had a definitive favorite. I wish my answer was more exotic but if I had to pick, I'd say dogs but not all dogs. I'll clarify that more in the dog vs. cat answer later. My reason for picking dogs? I guess we can attribute that to my furry friend, Lilo. That dog, though drives me crazy, is the sweetest thing and such a gentle, albeit sometimes crazy, soul.
  2. Wine or Beer?
    Have you met me? Red wine wins EVERY time! Speaking of red wine, I miss it so.
  3. Socks on or off while sleeping?
    OFF. Always off. Unless I'm camping or something.
  4. One piece or two piece bathing suit?
    I've always been a two-piece kinda gal but as I've dropped a few kids now I'm gravitating more towards tankinis (still technically two pieces) or a classy one piece. Truthfully, I don't adore wearing bathing suits to begin with but I'd rather not be playing in the pool with my kids in a scuba suit so there's that.
  5. Cooking at home or eating out?
    I'll take eating out for 1000 Alex. Yes, I like to cook, but as a busy mom, nothing beats a delicisious meal cooked by someone else and, better yet, CLEANED by someone else. Clearly I need to win the lottery so I can just have someone cook me all kinds of moderately healthy meals and then do all the dishes... unless I have any volunteers??? Bueller?
  6. Pepsi or Coke?
    Diet Coke. I know aspartame is the devil's spawn but there's nothing like a fountain Diet Coke. So. Good.
  7. Regular or electric toothbrush?
    Electric and I'd highly recommend switching if you haven't (cue toothbrush plug) - the amount of scaling I have done at the dentist was drastically reduced when I bought an electric toothbrush. I'm a true believer!
  8. Candy or chocolate?
    Totally unfair question to ask a nearly 7-months-pregnant woman. I love all the sugary things. If I must pick, I shall choose chocolate but don't think I wouldn't demo an entire bag of sour patch kids or cherry blasters if given the chance.
  9. Coffee or tea?
    Coffee... coffee and more coffee. Give me ALL the coffee. FYI: I think as the number of children in your life increases, so too does the number of coffees you require to function. No, that's not backed by scientific research but I feel I'm credible enough to make that statement.
  10. Music or talk radio?
    I used to LOVE driving in the car and blasting the tunes. Now, when I'm in the car sans-children, I like to listen to audio-books. Yup, yup I feel really old right now.
  11. Chick Flick. action movie, or documentary?
    Chick flicks for sure!
  12. Regular pencil or mechanical pencil?
    Mechanical because no sharpening... but you do have to insert those stupid sticks and they always seem to break. Then again, who uses pencils anymore?
  13. Swimming or laying out?
    Given my pregnant, beached-whale-status, I'd have to say laying out... at least I think that, until I lay for 5 minutes and get hot and sweating and can't stand feeling like I'm cooking. So maybe swimming? How about laying on a tube-y thing IN the pool. Ya. That sounds nice.
  14. Dog or cat?
    Dog, always dog. I'm allergic to cats anyways. I do have to say, in my mind not all dogs are created equal. I'm not too keen on little dogs. Give me a golden retriever, a mastiff, great dane or lab any day. There's just something so cuddly and almost human-like about them.
  15. What do you drive? Car, van, suv?
    I currently drive an SUV but since baby #3 decided she was joining our fam-jam, we'll be in the market for a mini-van. Oh ya, you read that right my friends, this little lady is going to officially graduate to mini-van driving, soccer-mom status.
  16. Early bird or night owl?
    These days I'm an early bird, mostly out of necessity. I get up at 5:40am 6 days a week to hit the gym. On my "sleep-in" days, I sleep until my kids wake me up (6:30/7). Early mornings usually earlier nights. Some nights I'm sure I could easily go to bed before my kids but apparently they need supervised and stuff.
  17. If you could eat only one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
    This is the hardest question of all. For real. I love all food and I'm pregnant. I can't possibly pick one thing. Steak dinner from the Keg maybe... with a three cheese twice-baked potato... obviously, low in calories and full of nutrition.
  18. While sleeping: phone in room by your side or phone in another room?
    Beside my bed but on silent.
  19. Singing in the shower, yes or no?
    No. Is that weird? If music was playing maybe.
  20. Oreo Cookies: Eat whole or take apart or dunk in milk?
    I literally cannot remember the last time I had an oreo cookie... definitely the whole thing though. Ugh, now I'm hungry.
Now hop on over to Sarah's blog to see her answers!
