Five Question Friday

(Click the image above to link up with us)

1. Do you prefer your ice cream in a bowl or in a cone?

In a cup, please, then bring me the cone!

2. What three things do you love the smell of?

– Laundry Detergent while in the dryer. The fragrance lingers through the air. Love it!
– The smell of Rain, which by the way we had 3 days of.
– Coffee brewing, or a coffee candle.. YUM

3. Gift-cards or no? (In regards of Gift giving…)

Personally. I like Gift cards. You can then buy what you want, and you don’t have to worry about getting something twice, or something you really didn’t need. I think Gift-cards is a great idea. People say that they don’t think it is the “right” thing to do, but what is “right” any more? This is a new day in age and I think we need to pick up our feet and move with it.
On another hand, I wouldn’t give gift cards all the time. I think Birthdays should be special, this is the time for that person and to show you are thinking about them on this precious day. Christmas, why not? Hand out Gift cards for the older crowd, or parents and buy toys for the children.

4.What sports did you play in high school if any and do you still play them?

Well, if playing a Clarinet is a sport then that’s what I did in high school. Do I still play them? Are you kidding me? lol!! Oh, well nooo. 6 or 7 years was enough of playing for me.

5. Were you in a band in high school? What instrument did you play?

Ha! I totally answered that in #4… I guess I get a cookie for predicting the future? (and no I really didn’t know what question #5 was before I answered #4. I answer one question at a time.. probably another thing I can add to my OCD collection.

What would your answers be? I hope your Friday is going great! I miss you guys, and I am trying to get back posting, slowly. Hugs and warm thoughts to you all.

Five Question Friday

Ahhhh!! I have been slacking! Sorry my fellow friends and readers. We had some bad lightning the other night and we needed up with no power, and blah blah blah, but I will tell ya about it on Todays truth πŸ™‚ So, Here we go.. 5QF!

1. If you knew your best friend’s spouse was cheating on her or him, would you tell her (him)?
I believe in Karma, and I don’t want to be the one breaking bad news to my friend. It is kinda like, yeah I dunno. Since my (ex) step-dad cheated on my mom and I was the one to tell my mom. I have become a let Karma do her thing, kinda person. I now feel as though if I tell my best friend about something, that the person I’m telling on might have lies good enough to not back my story, so I will just step back and watch what happens. I know, true friends tell and talk, but I already been on that fence and it tore me apart.

2. Soda in a can or a bottle?
Can!!! Something about being in a can makes it feel colder, and the taste is different πŸ˜‰

3. What do you wash first, hair or body?
I wash my hair first, haha! Am I weird? oh, then I double rinse it before I get out.

4. What advice would you give to any new mama?
Sleep while you can, and if you are doing formula.. get the containers that you can have the formula already in that way you can just dump it into the bottle than shake, shake it! lol!! πŸ™‚ and enjoy the moments while you can because the grow up so fast… or the time passes by so fast, either one.

5. What is your best hangover remedy?
Pop 2 Tylenol in the morning, and go get something to eat, with a water πŸ™‚

Lazy Night

Due to hubby being home it has been a lazy day, well, kind of.

I got up this morning, commented on some blog posts, washed dishes (by hand), cooked lunch, cleaned a little, took a nap on the couch, helped hubby with supper, went riding around with no goal intended (hubby will be working for 2 days, so might as well get out of the house today), and so it has been a great Lazy Day πŸ™‚

Google ImageΒ I did manage to cook up some squash!
– 3 to 4 med. Squash, cut into slices
– 3 Tbsp of low sodium butter (melted)
– add chicken bouillon cube till it is melted with butter
– add black pepper and salt to your liking
– pour over cut squash
– lay them out in a pan, evenly πŸ™‚
– Cook till brown on each side and it’s done!

I am still in the “lazy” kind of mood I decided to give Ruth’s idea of listing “favorite posts” πŸ™‚ I have been blogging a little over a month and half. It seems like forever ago, but sometimes it feels like yesterday! I have 23 subscribers, and gained a lot of “blogging friends” and for that I am grateful! Thanks to you guys, I would be just a normal fish out in the blogging sea.

Here is my favorite posts that I have done so far πŸ™‚

A Happy Birthday Post

My Hey Song made it to Christmas!! and they even told me Merry Christmas! LMAO!!! I know they want traffic, but I have to give them kudos to making me laugh.

I am sending a shout out not only because I can, or want to, but because Happy Birthdays should be special and a time for enjoyment for making it another year. My hubbys birthday is today! He is just a year shy of moving on to the grand 30s and today starts the mark off of never seeing the 20s again.

Dear Hubby,
Thank you for everything you have done. provided, and for sharing your world with ours. I hope we continue to celebrate not only your birthdays, or our birthdays but endless days to just enjoy each other. I hope we will eventually be filled with love, not just within our hearts as we both seem to have, but with love through our thoughts as we continue the journey of being more than just an ordinary Husband and Wife. I hope that your birthday is a special day from my heart to yours. You will never understand how much I truly care and love you, for as I don’t really know how to hold you and tell you, but I will reach out and touch you every chance I get. I may not be perfect, but I hope I am perfect for you. I know we have our ups and downs, not just with marriage but through everything that is going on with your health, and mine. We may not always see eye to eye, but I would like the world to know I do love you. Happy Birthday Savoy, and may you have many more that we can celebrate together.
I love you,
Jenna

There’s a BUG a Crawling…

Thank God I didn’t fall off the bed and hurt myself. I am usually good at keeping calm during these events, but no, not while I am sleeping.
Last night (not tonight, but Thursday night) we all decided to go to bed about the same time. Hubby put Jade to bed; I got myself ready for bed (of course checking my blog like a creeper before heading out for the night.)
I got all cozy in my bed, feet in my blankets, arm under the pillow, other hand up under my chin, with the blanket wrapped so securely and tight around my hand, right near my skin. I was so relaxed, in peace, getting ready to fall in that deep sleep, the deep sleep where your drool is about to run down your face, the sleep where you believe you are in the mystery side of heaven. Then Hubby wakes me, “Hey, Your daughter is awake.” (Your daughter – heard that right, lol) I throw the blanket off my arms, kick my feet out of the blankets and find myself at Jade’s bedroom door. She is standing there with her arms up, tears rolling down her face, “I need to go pee pee in the potty.” I put her down tell her to hurry up, because mommy is tired. She comes back; I give her kisses and send her back off in her bed.

I get back to my room, does the same process with my blanket, get all cozy, go back into my little peaceful dreamland, and Hubby wakes me again, 30 minutes later. I storm out the bed, yelling if he wakes me again I am going to go crazy. I get to my daughters room, and she says, “My pull up hurts.” I stump to the living room, grab a clean pull up, hand to her when I get back to her door, she changes them, throws the one that “hurts” in the hallway (even though there is nothing wrong with it, it just isn’t a “new” one). I bend down give her kisses, tell her to go night night, gave her the babies, and moezied my way back to my hole in the bed. (Note: It is now 12:00am)
4:00am Hubby jumps up (still asleep) and sits on the edge of the bed. I wake up ask him what is wrong, realize he is still asleep (thinking he might just think his alarm clock went off), tell him to lay back down, he still has a while. I get back to sleep when I was so rudely awakened by a BUG!!!
This bug was running down my arm, I flipped it off my arm, I jumped up on the bed, grab my pillow, shake it, run across to the other side of the bed, flipped on the light, and there is the bug… a CENTIPEDE!! He is now crawling over the blankets I start letting my voice get a little louder. I wake hubby tell him to get the BUG! I am now sitting back on my knees as the bug approaches my blanket; Hubby flicks him off the bed, then turns out the light. I sit there, waiting, wondering if it is going to come back! Hubby didn’t kill it remember!

Well, I stayed up til 6:30am Friday morning. Before hubby went to work we checked and shook all the pillow (all 5 of em), shook the blanket, made sure the bed skirt was in fact off the floor (tucking it in under the mattress) and I rolled up into my blanket like a cocoon. I finally dozed off to be awakening at 8:00am to my little Jade wanting a cookie.

Five Question Friday

1. What is your current favorite tv show?
If ONLY I just had one current show.. πŸ˜€
House,Bones,Lie to Me, Teen Mom, 16 & Pregnant, Swamp People, Ax Men, Bachlorette & Pawn Stars
2. What’s the worst haircut you ever got?
When I was young I had my hair cut up over my ears. I think I was in 2nd grade, gosh what was I thinking!? My mom let me decide what I wanted. I never went that high again, ha!

3. What was something that you did as a child that you thought you were so cool for doing?
I would tie my bangs up on my head, like a pony tail, except its just your bangs, then I would part it tot make it look like pigtails. My nickname for that was Pebbles.

4. Do you have any GREAT frugal family fun tips?
The frugal family fun tip – Go with the flow! Don’t be so uptight, and just let things happen. It is suppose to be “fun” πŸ˜›

5. Would you drive across country if you had the money to fly?
I would say I would like to drive across country. Driving you can stop, take pictures, visit places on your way. If you just fly, only thing you can do is just take pictures of cloud where you “think” something might be.

A Date Night

Hubby and I ventured out yesterday (Friday). Before we went out I was working in my yard. Hubby kept telling me I need to hurry we have bad weather coming through. Well, BLAH! I wanted to get all this done, since I have more of my flowerbeds done, now I just need to get to weeding out grass. While I was planting some more monkey grass, hubby was helping with making the holes bigger, and dividing it up so I can just place it in the hole and cover it up. I got halfway done with my 22 holes and it starts thundering, the more times it thunders, the closer it gets. I was hurrying up, throwing the grass in the hole, getting dirt and placing it in there. I don’t think I have moved that fast in a long time. When I went to stand up, it felt like I was going to fall over. I don’t guess you need to be leaning over for too long, ha!
Anyway, we got half of them in Hubby ran Jade in, gave her a bath. As I walked to the house I could feel my phone falling from my boobs. UGH! My hands where full, a drink, wow I can’t even remember everything I had, hahaha! Yeah, so I stopped in the hallway and told hubby to save my phone. (I forgot I put my phone between my boobs). Hubby starts joking around about it and tossed my phone in his chair and took back off to help Jade in the tub. I got me something to eat (since I didn’t eat breakfast and I took my diet pill, not a good combo), filled up my drink, grabbed my phone and went outside to wait for them to get out of the bathroom so I can get my shower and get ready to go to the movies.
As I sat outside I looked at my phone, tried to turn it on, because it often just goes off by itself. I had no luck getting it to turn on. At this point I feel like everything isn’t going right. My phone is being stupid, my flowers are not all planted, and I still have to get a shower before the storm moves in. I watch the clouds and try to fix my phone, taking it apart, putting it back together, beating it, lol! I finally stood up to take it to hubby. While I stood up, the chair I was sitting in fell off the porch, due to a little gust of wind and my legs pushed it back since I stepped back before going forward.
I gave my phone to my hubby and he put my sim card in his phone, handed me his phone and tried to fix my phone. (No Luck with my phone, Hubby says it has gone loopy! and for good this time) Sigh.
I finally get a shower, get out. I don’t even flat iron my hair. As I was drying my hair the storm started. You could hear the wind howling, lightning popping and the thunder rolling. I got half of my hair dried when I went to look out the living room window, right in time to see the lightning hit in the yard. It was a nasty storm, you can see pictures of what it did to Life’s Little Slices garden since she just lives 5 miles from me.
We get to Lisa’s house; leave Jade and head on our way to see X-men. I have to say I liked the movie. It brought everything together from the other movies. Some parts were corny, but what movie now-a-days doesn’t have corny crap in it? It was definitely a lot of action, and it was really worth it for me. After the movie I ask hubby where were going to eat, and he takes me McDonald’s, so I super size it, LOL! JK!! He did take me to McDonald’s though.Β  Not much on my diet, but I did only eat half of the burger, and half of the fries. πŸ™‚ So, I did pretty good.
