This week is all about Halloween! Remember head over to *Dandelion Wishes* and check out what others did for Halloween!

1} How did you celebrate Halloween? Trick or treating? Adult party? Trunk or treat?

We celebrated by Trick or Treating! At Publix and then in the neighborhood! This is really the first year that Landen has gotten into it, so it made it that much more fun!
{2} What candy is your favorite/the first thing you steal from the kids?

Reese’s! I use to steal them from my sister and now I steal them from my kids!
{3} What kind of candy do you give out, is it your favorite? or something you know you won’t be tempted to eat?

This year I bought candy I knew we would eat, only because I wasn’t sure if our neighborhood would get a lot of kids. We got CLEANED OUT! So next year I know to buy whatever because I won’t be stuck eating what is left!
{4} How soon after Halloween do you take down decorations and put away costumes?

The costumes stay out. I allow Landen to keep them to play dress up. The decorations come down the next day! Its only 3 weeks until Thanksgiving so I have to get my fall decorations out now! Plus the pumpkins have to be put away quickly so they can be made into pureed pumpkin.
{5} When do you decorate for the next holiday?

Most of my fall decorations are out already but I start put out the rest as I am taking down the Halloween decorations.

Hope y’all are having a wonderful week!

So its Wednesday again and its time to link up over at *Dandelion Wishes* for another “We Want To Know Wednesday”. So head over and find out what others are saying!

This week is ALL about shopping!

1. Do you shop til you drop, or are you in and out as quick as possible?

Depends on what store I am in and do I have the kids! If I am grocery shopping I have usually planned my trips and can be in and out quickly in about 45 mins (if I am shopping for a weeks worth of food) If I am in a craft store…. well Shane usually puts a timer on me because I can spend HOURS!!!!! in Joann’s or Hobby Lobby!
2. Are you a price conscious shopper?

Yes I am learning to coupon and I also plan our weekly menus around the sales flyers. When I am doing craft projects I try to go when I have coupons or when they are running big sales and stock up then!
3. What store could you spend HOURS in?

Joann’s!!!! FABRIC FABRIC AND MORE FABRIC! Plus everything else! I could spend all day living in their fabric section. Also Hobby Lobby!
4. What is the most frivolous purchase you have ever made?

My embroidery/sewing machine! It hasn’t been used as much as I would like but I plan on putting it to good use NOW!
5. What was the last thing you bought for yourself?

A quilting table! It has made cutting fabric SO MUCH easier! Best purchase EVER!

{1} When was the last time you lost your temper?

The other day when Lexi was running a temp of 103.5 and the doctor sent me to the emergency room because it was almost closing time for them!

Needless to say I went to the ER and am now actively looking for another doctor for the kids!

{2} What 3 words best describe you?

Loving, Caring, and a bitch when you mess with my family!

Gone With The Wind! Yes I know its like a 4 hour movies but I LOVE IT! Or Pretty Woman
{4} If you could do something dangerous, just once, with no risk, what would you do?

Sky Dive! I have always wanted to and will one day soon! It’s on my 30 before 30 list!

Common Sense because cause without it intelligence would really mean nothing!

Remember head over to *Dandelion Wishes* to check out what others are saying.

{1} What is your feel better remedy when you are sick?

Chicken noodle soup!!!! It jut always seems to hit the spot!

{2} When illness strikes, what is your policy on staying home from work, school or church with yourself and the family?

If my child isn’t running around acting like himself then he should probably not be at school. If he has a fever or just acting unusual then he stays home. If not then its off to school!

{3} What do you think is worse? Flu or cold?

Cold, they can stay around for weeks!
{4} Flu shots? Do you get them? Have you yet?

Hate them! I got one while I was pregnant but I have not this year and probably will this year just in case one of the kids gets it. Also both kids will have it since Landen is in school this year.

{5} When are are feeling down, what is your usual, go-to therapy? (retail therapy, exercise, comfort food, etc).

Comfort food and exercise(depending on how bad I feel) I feel like I can sweat the cold out and it usually works for me!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week. Hoping Friday comes quickly!

Its Wednesday again and its time to head over to Dandelion Wishes and checkout what everyone is saying. This week the questions are all about food! I have to say I like LOVE talking about food so these questions are WONDERFUL!
{1} What is one thing (food or drink) that you MUST have everyday?

Coffee… I know its cliche but I am a mother of 2 with a 6 month old who is still waking up in the middle of the night and a 3 year old who comes and sleeps in my bed EVERY night! Coffee is a must in my world! 
{2} What is your “go to” food when you don’t feel well/need comfort?

Chicken noodle soup! when I dont feel good and tomato sandwiches when I need comfort!
{3} Is there a dish that you make that people request when they visit your home/a family favorite?

Lately its been pumpkin pie! Shane’s friends have been requesting it since we moved here. I have already made it like 4 times in the last few months. And let me make this very clear…. THIS IS NOT canned pumpkin! This is real pumpkin! That I scraped out of the pumpkin last year! The canned stuff is just NOT the same!
{4} What are 3 foods you have TRIED, do not like and will NEVER eat again?

Pine nuts Extremely allergic to and its not something that they usually tell you is in their food. Unfortunately I have tried eaten these on more than one occasion!

Oysters!!!! GROSS sorry it you like them but to me they taste like SNOT!

And most hot peppers! I am not a fan of having my mouth on fire!  

and our final question comes from Dee@ HomesickCajun
{5} What’s one thing that you love to eat that most people would think is weird and/or gross??

Olives I use to eat them right out of the jar. I dont do that anymore but I still LOVE them and will add them to anything…. as long as I think I can sneak it past Shane and Landen!

**** Remember DONT JUDGE ME!!!******

{1} What is your MUST SEE show?

{2} What shows are you most excited to watch this season?

{3} How many hours a week do you actually watch TV?

More than I probably should! I watch the news in the morning and then at least 2 hours at night. And then its usually on in the background while I am cooking, folding clothes or whatever I may be doing at the time.

{4} Do you think TV has gotten too “racy” (vulgar, pushing the limit, etc) ?

I think that TV is pushing the limits. Show like Toddlers and Tiaras that showcase parents dressing their children up like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman or Dolly Parton and putting those children up on stage. Why would this TV show put this on TV? Everything on TV is now to shock and get people talking! I have to admit I have watched some of these types of shows. But most of the time I dont want people knowing that I am watching them, so here is a questions, Why would we watch TV shows that we would be embarrassed for other people to know we watch? If we didn’t watch it the shows would have to be more responsible for what they are putting on TV.
{5} How many TVs do you have in your house?

We only have 2. One in the Kids playroom and one in the family room.

Remember head over to *Dandelion Wishes* to see others that have linked up!

{1} What are 3 must haves for a long road trip?

Ok so it use to be music, candy, and drinks. But I’m a momma now and so my priorities have changed just a little bit. Now we must have videos, juice boxes, and snacks. Ok so the priorities haven’t changed much but they are now to make sure I am not hearing “Momma….” all the time!

{2} What was the destination of your most recent road trip?

The most recent trip was to Atlanta to pick up more of our shit stuff. We have been lucky to not have to travel much in the past few weeks…. its not as much fun when to have 2 small children in the back seat!
{3} What do you miss most about home when on a trip?

My schedule. The kids do so much better when we are in our OWN house. But coming in a close second would have to be my bed! No matter where you are there is nothing like sleeping in your own bed.

{4} What is the furthest you have traveled on a road trip?
When I was in college I traveled from Statesboro, Ga to Virginia and back with one of my roomies and I traveled to Atlanta to hit up to Music Mid-town then to see my parents and then to see hers. It took us about a week but it was fun and we had a blast together!

{5} Will you “stop for the largest ball of twine, etc” or are you a “hurry and get there” road tripper?

I am a hurry up and get there. I do like to stop at things that are really important especially so that the kids can see different thing but I don’t see a point is visiting the worlds largest whatever!

Hope y’all are having a great week… only 2 more days until the weekend!
