Five Question Friday!

It's Frrriiiiii-Day!!

Welcome back, my friends!! So, I was trying to create a snazzy, catchy, cute little button for this carnival...turns out I'm not as computer savvy as I thunk I were...couldn't come up with somethin' cute, or snazzy, or catchy. Funny, you'd think adding "glitter" to anything would make it snazzy, but not so much.

So, let's get hoppin'! In case you're new to this gig, here's the deets (you know, as in details...ahem, my poor excuse for being hip): Copy and paste the questions below to your blog post, answer them, grab the MckLinky Blog Hop code for the "Five Question Friday" Blog Hop, throw it into the html of your answered question post, then link up, mates! (Oooh, see, now I'm trying on my Aussie hat! Well, that...and I just saw Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaur--great flick, btw...)

Okay, so, yeah, the questions:


1. What is your biggest Pet Peeve? (Thanks, Meghan!)


2. With no worries about finances, childcare, or travel time...where would you most want to vacation?


3. If your house was in the path of a tornado and you had time to grab 3 things before the house was totally destroyed (children, husband, pets are already out) what 3 items would you grab? (Thanks, A.!)


4. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? (Thanks, Keely!)


5. What is your family's favorite homecooked meal?


--------------------------------------------


1. What is your biggest Pet Peeve? (Thanks, Meghan!)
Oooh, funny! My biggest PP prior to kiddos, was snotty noses on kids. I thought, "For real, just wipe the nose already!!" Then I had kids, multiple kids, and realized, somethin's gotta give! And sometimes, that "somethin'" is a snotty nose! So, anywho, now, my pet peeve is people smacking when they eat. Grrrr...drives me bonkers!

2. With no worries about finances, childcare, or travel time...where would you most want to vacation?
Oh, I think it would be Bali! The little cottages on the ocean, crystal clear water, leisure, tropical sun, tropical drinks...ahhhh, relaxes me just thinkin' 'bout it!


3. If your house was in the path of a tornado and you had time to grab 3 things before the house was totally destroyed (children, husband, pets are already out) what 3 items would you grab? (Thanks, A.!)
My computer hard drive...probably that's all I could manage to lug out!! It's darn heavy, I tell ya! Okay, but two others...hmmm. Ooooh, my yellow flats! And the tote o' photos under our bed! Geez, that's a hard one!

4. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? (Thanks, Keely!)
Hmmmm...well, if I could plant my roots elsewhere...probably Colorado, or Australia (I hear they have a great president...or Prime Minister...or Monsignor...or something). I just couldn't up and leave family and friends, though, they'd definitely have to come with!

5. What is your family's favorite homecooked meal?
Probably my Swedish Meatballs and Mashed Potatoes...a frequently requested meal in the winter (I refuse to use the oven in summer...no air conditioning, ugh!!)


All right...time to link up!

  5. How about we meet up in Colorado and I will cook:). Unless you want to pay for my trip from Texas - I could use a break from the heat!!

  6. My fiance loves meatballs and mashed potatoes, but I can't get the dang things to stay together while I'm trying to cook them! Whats the secret?? I know, it's pretty pathetic that I can't make meatballs!

  7. Yorkshire puddings are like little dinner rolls that you bake and then cover in gravy...they pop up quite big in the oven...

    That is a decent recipe for them, it is best to make sure all your ingredients hit room temp first. SOOOOO yummy. My Nana was from England, and she made them all the time when I was growing up.

  9. i am MUCH more of a new jersey sounded girl then a new orleans accent (which is not your typical southern sounding accent either, kinda brooklyn with a hint of southern) I've really only picked up 'y'all', not that my south jersey accent isnt amusing, people think it is. I have family in Minnesota (dontcha know'..lol) so i can read your blog and 'hear' the accent.

    love your blog!!!!

  12. Bali sounds soooo nice right now!

    I am going to have to try your Swedish Meatball recipe. I grew up on the ones made with the seasoning packet. Now I just eat get them at Ikea. (I like the gravy the most) :)

    And about that meatloaf, I eat very little meat and don't usually eat meatloaf but that recipe is good!
