Grilling Goodness #7


Hey y'all!! Welcome back for another installment of Grilling Goodness!! I don't know about you, but I really look forward to doing this each week. Thanks for joining me!

1. What's the worst thing you've ever sent through the washing machine/dryer?

2. Do you do any of your Christmas shopping online?

3. What are you looking forward to this Thanksgiving?

4. What did you do before you had children that you miss doing now that you have children?

5. Do you have a fireplace? (Do you use it?)

6. Do medical shows showing surgeries and blood freak you out?

7. How long have you lived where you live?

8. What is one of your favorite seasonal items?

My Answers

1. Since this just happened last week, I'll say it was when I washed a stick of strawberry lip balm. The tube was completely empty when it came out of the dryer and our pink polka-dotted clothes are, sadly, not going to be all the rage. I'm hoping that GooGone or something will clear up the cooties on our clothes!

2. I do shop a little online, mostly for hubs. He is hard for me to buy for. I can usually find what I need online...I love not having to go on a wild goose chase for gifts.

3. The whole day. Really. We gather with family for lunch. After we stuff ourselves, we play games and browse the sale papers...and then we eat again. My children are getting old enough to play a few games of their own, so I think we'll have a fun day!

4. I would say that I used to sleep in and I miss it...and while I'd love to hit 8 o'clock sometimes, I have no desire to sleep any later than that. It's a waste of the day! What I really miss is cleaning the house with the stereo blaring...but my babies were in school yesterday and I did just that!!

5. We do have a fireplace...a gas one. When we were looking for a house, we just had to have a fireplace. Uh huh. Yea. We've never had a fire in this must-have fireplace. Doofus.

6. NO! I LOVE watching surgeries! But...I have no idea if I'd make it as a nurse. I don't think it's the blood that would do me in, it would be the vomit and other bodily outputs. Ew.

7. I have lived in this house since I got back from my honeymoon in August of 2000.

8. Candles. Pumpkin Spice candles for the fall. Cinnamon Stick candles for the Christmas season. Mmmm!

Big hugs!

Hi, Tina. I really enjoy this meme. Thanks for hosting it!

I don't sell Home Interiors products, but I definitely recommend the Baked Apple Pie scented candle - it's wonderful!

Smiling Shelly said...

YAY!!! I played again. I've really missed doing these GG's each week.

I still plan on catching up one day soon. I'll let you know as soon as they're up.

Oh, and good luck getting the strawberry lip balm out of the clothes. UGH!

I just did Grilling Goodness for the first time... I'm a day late, but did it anyway. :) I found you through Kim @ Beanish and Other Languages I'm Learning.

1. I bought some fabric online that was really beautiful, and really cheap. It was a navy blue stretch velvet with (don't freak out, Debbie) gold glitter on it in a plaid pattern. I wash all fabric before using it, and when I opened the washer, there was gold glitter coating the inside. Took hours to clean it all out, and I still had glitter on my laundry for a while. That fabric went from the washer to the trash can outside, leaving a trail of gold glitter in its wake.

2. Sometimes--if it's a good price or hard to find locally.

3. We ordered a smoked turkey from Corky's--yummmmmm!

4. Taking long baths, cleaning out the refrigerator faithfully every 6 months, jumping up and going out somewhere without hearing someone crying (yes, even at 9 and 13).

5. Yes, we have a fireplace, and we never use it.

6. I like medical shows, but I like real ones, not made-up drama ones. I'm not freaked out by them at all.

7. 6 years in this house, my whole life in Memphis except for about 3-4 years.

8. Me too--candles. They go everywhere, and they get lit often.

Amy said...

I posted my Goodness!;)

1. The many pens left in my hubby's pockets--they are not so friendly to the clothes! But the diaper was really not pleasant either...just a wet one..but the thought.

2. A little--for hubby. hard to get Tennessee State stuff in Tx

3. Seeing my granny and parents!

4. Sleep!!!!!!

5. yes, but it has candles in it.

6. No, but I prefer not to see it.

7. 1 1/2 years...

8. Can junk food be a seasonal item :)
