PostHeaderIcon Random Dozen

I found this fun thing to do from 2nd Cup of Coffee (if you visit let her know you saw it here!)so I thought I would try it today. My brain is still fried from Wednesday's post with the moving pictures!! So this was pleasantly easy, and no moving pictures...

1. Candy corn: Your thoughts? Taste icky. I like the way they look though, very autumnal to me. I buy them for decoration but my little one LOVES to eat them and therefore ruins my decoration.

2. Briefly, what was the first conversation you ever had with your spouse? Hi I'm Cara...a whip it? What????

3. Could you ever become a vegetarian? Nope I like meat

4. Have you ever dressed up your pet in a costume? Yes for the Dog Beauty contest we had at a block party once. She was not happy about it.

5. Name something about childhood that you miss. Playing outside on the block with the neighborhood kids; not a care in the world except getting caught during manhunt, and then getting Mr. Softee in my pajamas after I already had to come in and taken a bath

6. Have you ever won a trophy? If not, what do you deserve a trophy for? I think I got one once for singing in school or soccer? Not sure. If I got one now, it would be for worrying about my kids or putting up with PTA nonsense.

7. When do you think is the appropriate time to begin playing Christmas music each year? The very next morning after Thanksgiving at 6am in the car while going Black Friday shopping.

8. What's your favorite board game? Mystery date as a kid, now chess as I am being taught how to play by my 7 year old.

9. How do you feel about surprises (receiving, not giving)? I like to get good surprises…I DO NOT like to be surprised like… a kid jumping out at me in the dark to scare me. I HATE THAT! (don’t worry he only suffered minor bruises) and I love to surprise people although it gives me major stress during planning the surprise.

10. Is it easy for you to say, "I'm sorry?" Absolutely. When I find out I am ever wrong about something I will give it a try. (hee hee just kidding!)

11. What is your favorite candle scent? Cinnamon Apple…right now. Then I will do Christmas scents...

12. October is traditionally "open house" time in public schools. If you had a literal open house in your home (like a reception) what light snacks would you serve visitors and what would you show them (as in art projects, graded papers) that would uniquely represent you? I would serve cheese and crackers, wine, perhaps some baked brie, bruschetta, and spinach artichoke dip (sorry for me that’s light)…and I would show them my home folder of all the things I plan on doing in my house and show the photo album of the before and after things we have already done.

That's all for today folks...have a great weekend. I have the first of two weddings tomorrow. Happy Wedding Day to my pal Malorie and congrats to my dear friend and mother-in-law to be Lizzie Liz.

Candy corn is like jelly beans to me. I could live without them but I don't dislike them. I'd just rather use those calories on something CHOCOLATE!

There's an award for you on my blog today:
