1. What do you keep a stock pile of?

I keep a stock pile of canned food.  I live in Mormon country and they have this wonderful thing called the "case lot sale."  I always stock up on canned tomatoes, green beans, corn, tomato sauce, mandarin oranges, peaches, beans- chili, kidney, black and pinto, olives, chicken and beef broth, and whatever else I need.  Those are things I like to have on hand and not have to think about picking up a can here and there for a certain recipe.

2. If Ben & Jerry asked you to invent an ice cream, what would it be?

Man, B&J is SO GOOD, how do you improve upon their perfection.  I tend to be a chocolate and caramel girl, so they already have a lot of flavors that have wonderful concoctions that appeal to my taste buds. 

3. How do you blow off steam?

I tend to be a bit of a crier.  It's hard to because it is often interpreted as a weakness, but if I'm really upset I cry. 

4. What would you do if you had an hour to yourself anywhere within a ten mile radius of your kids, no hubby, just you?

There isn't much to do around here so it would be something at home.  I love to sew and would probably just dive right in to my baby girl's quilt.  Or I might pull out my scrapbooking projects and hammer away at the albums I need to catch up on.

5. When you were 16, what was your curfew in the summertime?

I lived out in the country, so I didn't really go out a whole lot as a teenager.  I did have a car, but my parents were pretty strict that it was to be used for school transport and not running around.  If there was a specific event I would get permission on a case-by-case basis and it would have those restrictions attached to it. 

I'm also trying to think of where I went that summer, every year in high school I spent a month in another state.  I think that was the year I went to New Jersey and stayed with my big brother for a month.  He definitely did not allow me to drive there, and everywhere we went we went together, so I never went out that whole month alone.  We did a bunch of fun stuff though, it was a fun trip.


  1. You and I are in the same pool with catching up on scrapbooks! I have A's first year done (he's 8). I never started C's (he'll be 5 next month). Yep...mama slacker!

  2. I have a scrapbook to complete as well. When I retired my former workers gave me the necessaries. We also want my mother to scrapbook some her memories. I think I will wait for the snow in the winter when there is time to stay inside.

  3. I'm a crier, too! It gets frustrating, when others don't understand. I'm not sad; I'm just so mad at you right now! :)

  4. I'm securing my immortality with my scrapbooks. I can't be done until I'm caught up, right? I cry when that last straw breaks me too. People who know me keep away when that happens!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
