Grilling Goodness With Tina And Friends

My sweet bloggy friend, Tina, from the Golden Goodness blog has started this fun new meme for Fridays. It is called "Grilling Goodness." Each Friday Tina will ask (and answer) eight questions, and she would like all of her readers to do the same.

So, without further ado, I am joining Tina and her friends by posting my first edition of "Grilling Goodness."

Let's get the party started!

1. Do you snort when you laugh?

Only when I have a mouth full of Diet Coke, unfortunately.


2. Do you have any idea why we don't sneeze in our sleep? Wild guess?

Maybe, but this is just a scientific guess, we don't sneeze in our sleep because we are simply too tired to sneeze? And I, of course, don't want to disturb Baby Girl while she is resting. ;)

3. Do you give much thought to astrology?

Only when I like what it says. (*kidding, of course*) I used to give it a lot of thought when I was a teenager living through one teenage tragedy after another, but now, I don't. Unless, of course, it says that I am going to come in to a big fortune. ;)

4. What is the most expensive thing you've purchased this year?

My sweet husband gave me a gift certificate for a Vera Bradley purse in Java Blue. Sigh. I love it! I am hoping to make one more expensive purchase around Christmas time. A Vera Bradley purse in the yummiest shade of Frankly Scarlet.

But if this doesn't work out, I have a back up plan. I will just make Tina give me hers.

I'm just saying.

5. What kind of shampoo do you use? Loyally?

I use (and very loyally, I must say) Wella Color Preserve Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner. I buy it at the salon where Melissa works and performs all of her hair related miracles.

6. Whose music are you really diggin' right now?

Don't judge. It's not nice!

7. What is your favorite thing about the Fall?

Oh, everything! I love the leaves changing colors and falling everywhere, not to mention the cool crisp breeze that always messes up my hair. The fall also brings with it all of the joy of the Peanuts gang and their holiday specials on television.


8. Do you have a GPS?

Yes, but I call mine an SJM.

He is my sweet hubby, and he is all the directions I need rolled into one yummy device.;)

And now, to quote Tina, "Copy the questions and haul them over to your blog to post your answers. Invite your friends and we'll have a grand ole time!"

Ready. Set. Go play!!

I'm so happy that you've joined me!!

2. Could be...
4. I have quite a grip on my purse...and even if I don't sneeze in my sleep, I can hold that purse!! LOL
7. Can't wait to DVR those Peanuts specials for the kids!
8. Aw...puke. KIDDING!! My husband is not good with directions at all...but ask him who had the highest batting average in 1982, I'm certain he could tell you!!

Have a great Friday, friend! :)

I am a Leo, too! Though, I don't even really know what it MEANS to be a Leo -I just know I am one! :)

How fun is this post? I love that you added pictures to this post.. it made it even more fun. The picture of you and your GPS is so cute!

Gina said...

That was a fun read! I love the Peanuts specials too.

Have a great weekend!

God bless,

Dianne said...

Oh I will defiantly incorporate this into my FF. Tsk, I'm very disappointed Amy, I can't belive you don't use Pantene, now we just cant be freinds anymore. Oh dear.

Good thing I can't spell, coz we can definatly still be friends, just not freinds. LOL.

I do like your SJM, do they come in any other models?

Cheffie-Mom said...

Love your answers! The last one is my favorite! Have a super weekend!

Liz said...

Amy you are HILARIOUS! I love it. Matt is my GPS. He says that if he blindfolded me and spun me around in the backyard I wouldnt find my way back to the house.

He's right. :)

You and your SJM, after a long sneezeless nap, on a rainy fall day, sorting with diet coke in your mouth, after loyally using the hair products purchased in Melissa's shop, listening to the Kid, while on your way to pick up the money that your horoscope predicted you would win and put it in your Vera Bradley purse.

OH MY!!! That's a perfect day! :)

Smiling Shelly said...

You, after a long sneezeless nap, on a stormy fall day, going to pick up the money you won, from the lottery ticket that your horoscope predicted, and put it in your Vera Bradley purse so you could go to Melissa's shop and purchase your loyally used hair products, while listening to the Kid, as your wonderful SJM navigates you back home.....

Ah....that's the perfect day for you, isn't it ;)

Love the Vera, but you can keep Kid and his rock, although I'm trying not to like his current song on country radio.

Thanks Amy for this fun post! Now I know even more about you. One thing I get out of reading your blog is that you are one of those women who likely go around singing, "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun". I am in the same group. Fun fun fun.

diane said...

Thanks Amy for your tip on publishing. That is exactly how I do it or sometimes I load the pictures from the bottom of my story up to the top, keeping each 5 in order. That way you don't have to cut and paste. I just thought there may be a quicker way.

Tracey said...

I like SJM!!! Very funny! Still haven't forgiven you for Kid Rock! Ugghh!

I got my background from I went there first to see what colors I should use when making my header.. then I went to I used one of thier templates but you can start with a blank page. I saved it as a jpeg and there you have it.. It took me about an hour but now that I have the hang of it.. I don't think it would take that long anymore.. I hope that helps..
