Hodgepodge and Chats ~ 5/9/12

This week's questions:

1. What is a pet peeve you have when vacationing?

Trying to squeeze too much into the vacation so that you are stressed out more at the end than you were in the beginning!

2. Would you describe yourself as a light packer or do you need everything in your closet plus the kitchen sink?

I'm a fairly light packer although I have to pack for all four of us.  I don't get too obsessive because I figure there's always a Wal-mart somewhere :)

3. What's the best lesson a child ever taught you?

Go ahead and pick the flowers.  That is what they are there for.

4. Share one piece of advice you'd give a recent graduate as they attempt to enter the job market?

Don't feel like you have to stay in that job forever.  It is OK to change jobs or even careers as you change and grow.

5. What's your favorite lemon something?

Lemon Torte!

6. Flat sandal, wedge, heel...your favorite footwear?

Hands down-  flip flops!

7. What do you like best about a beach holiday? If you're not a beach lover (GASP!!) what do you dislike the least?

Relaxing and taking in the view of the horizon, the water lapping, the kids playing, etc.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I really need to start making lists to get ready for our Disney World vacation.  Less than 1 month away!


Here are the questions:

1.What do your everyday dishes look like?

2.What shoes are you likely to throw on in a pinch right now? "Go to" shoes.

3.What's the last gift you were given?

(The last gift I got was from the Mamarazzi Favorite Color Swap.  The post and pictures will be coming SOON!!)

4.The first face you saw this morning was-------------------.

5.What cup or mug are you most likely to grab for your tea or coffee? What's your "cuppa"cup?

Have a great day!

  4. I'm your newest follower! :)

  5. A trip to Disney sounds fantastic, have fun getting all ready for that.

    I agree with your #1, I hate vacations that are more stressful than the everyday you are supposed to be vacationing from.

  6. "There's always a Wal-Mart somewhere." I really should take that to heart when packing.- LOL Yea for flip-flops!

    I really like your header cute and personal. :)

  7. So glad you stopped by, I am fixing to be your newest follower. I love "There's always a Wal-Mart somewhere." Isn't that the truth, and it seems like no matter where we go we end up stopping by Wal-Mart.
    until next time... nel

  9. Thanks for leaving your link, that was so handy. I like all of your answers to your chats.
    Your vacation sounds wonderful. I like your mug too and your everyday dishes. I don't think I have met you before, It is nice to meet you.
    I am Kim by the way.
    My Field of Dreams.

  10. Have a fantastic time at Disney World. I bet your kids are beside themselves with excitement! :)

  11. I like the mug! Thanks for joining in. We went to Disney this past January.It was fun, but it seemed impossible to do everything. We sat down with the information about the parks and decided what each of us wanted to do the most. We did those things and whatever else we could squeeze in. We left the theme parks mid-day to eat, nap, and swim in the hotel pool. It made it nice when we went back. We had more energy to do things. Have a great time!

  12. I used to pick flowers for my mom all the time when I was a kid. No matter whose yard they were in. LOL

    I love my flip flops- I wear them nearly year 'round. Your mug is so cute!

  13. Those eyes are beautiful & the tootsies too...LOL...I'm a flip flop girl too. Nice to meet you, have a blessed week

  14. You know, I once forgot to take underwear on a trip. Thank goodness Target was a block away!! That was the ONLY time I ever did that!!

  15. I hear you on number 1! Seems like I always come home from vacation needing another just to recoup!
