Presidential Hodgepodge

1. George Washington-Abraham Lincoln-Thomas Jefferson...who would you most like to meet and why?
Starting off with a hard one, huh?  3 great men; it's tough to choose.  I'm going to go with George Washington.  No, wait!  Abraham Lincoln.  No, wait!  Thomas Jefferson.  I don't think I can choose just one!  All 3 of them have very intriguing histories.  It does seem that maybe Lincoln was more loyal to his wife.  You don't hear about "Lincoln slept here...and here...and here" like Washington, and he didn't have offspring with women who weren't his wives like Jefferson did.  

2. What's your favorite chain restaurant?
This is a "local" chain, but right now I'd go with Smoky Mountain Brewery.  They have $5 burger nights along with $3 beer on Wed., and every now and then I'll meet some friends to play trivia.  Good times, good food!

3. I spied this question on the Bears at Home blog last week and she gave me permission to
borrow it-

When you look back on your life, do you imagine you'll think about the goals you failed to meet with regret? Or will you look at what you accomplished and say: it was good?
I hope that I will look back and say it was good:  I married a wonderful man and had 3 boys with him.  We've done some traveling (and hope to do more), and I chose a profession that helps people and, as an added bonus, I love.  

4. Grapefruit-take 'em or leave 'em? Given the choice between an orange and a grapefruit which would you choose? Would you prefer it served as is or squeezed into juice?
Grapefruit = EWWWWW!  Give me an orange...a navel orange so I don't have to deal with the seeds, please.  (yes, I realize that's just laziness!)  Here's the weird thing:  I love oranges, but don't care for orange juice, unless there's some apple juice mixed in with it.  And definitely no pulp.
5. When was the last time you cleaned out a closet? Is there a closet in your home that currently needs cleaning? What are you waiting for?
Oh, gosh, Joyce!  Again with the hard questions!  I cleaned out YS' closet last July when he was at band camp.  Does a pantry count?  I cleaned that out last summer.  I'm sure there are closets that need to be cleaned out, but they have doors so I'm not too concerned about it!  
6. You get to have lunch with three famous people...who would you like to see round your table?
Are we talking alive or does it matter?  'Cause I have some serious questions for the Virgin Mary.  I'd also like to have Jesus at that same table, because then you KNOW I'd get some honest answers.  And while we're at it, can't have Mary & Jesus without Joseph!
7. On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate your ability to parallel park?
I'd say a 5.  Unless there's somebody waiting on me, then I'd go and find another parking place.  Once I get in, the car probably won't be straight, but then again, I have a hard time parking straight in regular parking place!
8. Insert your own random thought here. 
CH did great for Valentine's Day.  I didn't expect anything; I planned on fixing dinner and that was pretty much it.  He came in the house, and I didn't see anything in his hand.  We were in the kitchen talking, and he reached into his inside coat pocket, and I thought maybe he was getting something, but he pulled out his phone.  I had on a hoodie sweatshirt (sexy for Valentine's Day, dontcha think?) and he turned my hood inside out, but he always does that.  So, I turned it back around.  He fiddled around with it for a second, then told me to put the hood up so he could see what it looked like.  So I did, and he said, "Don't you feel anything?", to which I responded, "Did you put your glasses in there?"  Dummy me...we were watching tv Monday night and saw this commercial:
No, it wasn't his glasses, but it was a box from a jewelry store.  And, inside was a charm for my bracelet:
 Yep, he did good!


  1. Well, your way of selecting a president to meet certainly was interesting, eh? Not sure if we could meet a politician nowadays who hasn't slept "here" and "there." LOL

    What a nice surprise that the hubster gave you! I know it made your day!!

  2. Very pretty charm for your bracelet. He done good!!

  3. Oh he did so good. I am impressed. Frank and I don't do Valentines Day...I sent him an ecard and he sent me one. We ate out last night....period. We will have to do that Brewery place next time I am up....on trivia night for sure.

  4. Aww...I'd say your hubby is definitely a keeper!

  5. I didnt realize George Washington had such a scandal as a lov-ah!!! Who knew???

    what a cute charm!!!

  6. Jewelry is always an excellent choice! I emailed you about the weekend just fyi : )

  7. Awww! That is sooo very sweet of your husband :) So cute :)

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

  8. What a pretty charm ... and a sweet way to giving it to you. Our Valentine's Day evening wasn't very glamorous or exciting ... we stayed in, watched hockey and Westminster. Guess we're just a couple of old fogies! ha!

    I'm with you on oranges ... I don't know that for me it's laziness, I just hate eating an orange segment and biting into a seed.

  9. least you'd attempt to park parallel. And being a '5' in your estimation sounds good enough to me. Better than my far.

    MY LINK: DOWNTOWN PARK [you'll need to scroll down below my photo shares to read if you chose to stop by to visit!!]

  10. I never really thought about the fidelity of those men, but it is telling of their character...or was it society in their times? Hmmm, now I'm curious.

  11. Pretty charm for bracelet. Answer to #1 is so true.

  12. The best part of the gift was the way he presented it to you! That was awesome! I'm with you on the grapefruit- EWWWWW!!!

  13. I thought a few of the questions were hard this week. Joyce is the best at asking them! What a great gift. I have a Pandora one that could use a heart!

  14. Awww, your hubby is awesome. I'm glad you have someone so special in your life.
