Grilling Goodness With Tina And Friends~ 6 (And An Update On My Mom)


It's that time again...Time for some more "Grilling Goodness." If you would like to join in all of the fun, just click here. Tina would love to have you all participate!

Now, on with the grilling.....

1. What is one of your 'must see' tv shows?

I have about forty-five several "must see" shows, but since I don't want to bore you all to tears, I'll just share a few with you.

Shannon and I both LOVE to watch Criminal Minds; it is our favorite show to watch together for our "date" nights on the couch.

We also love a new show called The Mentalist. It is very clever.

But when Shannon is NOT watching television with me, I cannot seem to get enough of these two shows.

The Duggars~ 17 Kids And Counting....

And Jon and Kate Plus Eight....

I just cannot help myself. If these shows are on...I am watching them. Sometimes Shannon walks in the living room only to find me watching them, and he looks at me and asks, "Weren't you just watching this show yesterday?" To which I sheepishly respond, "Yes." And then he looks at me and says ever so sweetly, "Amy, we are NOT having 8 or 17 children."

2. Do you have a facebook page?

No, but I do have a Myspace page. You can click here to take a peek.

3. How old were you when you got married?

I was twenty-one years young, and Shannon was twenty-five years young on our wedding day.


4. What is one bad habit that you need to break?

I have several bad habits, but if I had to choose just one, it would be to stop picking at my split ends.

I have other bad habits that I really need to work on as well, but this one is really irritating to my family.

5. What is your favorite cold-weather activity?

Well, since I have Raynaud's Disease, when it is cold outside, I need to be inside where it is warm. So, when it is cold, I love to curl up on the couch and read a good book or watch one of my forty-five favorite shows (please refer back to question number one). Right now though, thanks to Becky and Liz, I am reading a book called New Moon.

I love a good vampire story full of romance and suspense.

6. At church, do you always sit in the same area?

It has been a while since we have been to church, but when we do go, we are definitely creatures of habit. We like the back row. A lot. Shannon, because he is not wild about being around a bunch of people, and me, because I can sing as loud as I want to without every one complaining.;)

7. What do you like best about blogging?

I heart all things about or related to blogging. But if I had to say what I like best about blogging, it would have to be getting the opportunity to "meet" so many different women from places all over America, not to mention all over the globe. Blogging has made my little life in Crazyville seem not so small. I am constantly amazed by what I learn from all of the different ladies that I have had the pleasure to meet in Blogland. God made some incredibly interesting people, amen? ;)

8. What's the last funny thing you remember hearing from a child?

When Shannon and I went to the grocery store Monday night after leaving the hospital, we forgot to buy ketchup. We thought that we had plenty, but apparently we were mistaken. Our son Daniel goes through a lot of ketchup each week, so he ran out of ketchup around Thursday. We weren't going to be able to go to the store again until Sunday, so by Saturday he was really missing his ketchup. He looked at both of us on Saturday and said, "You know, I just realized, my whole diet revolves around ketchup. It's so miserable not having any. I eat everything with ketchup." LOL!:)

And you think you have problems.

I wanted to let you all know that my mom got to go home Saturday. She was so happy to be out of that hospital! She will be off work until the beginning of the new year to recuperate. Thank you all so much for your prayers for her.

Glad to hear about your Mom! I have been distant lately and have some blog ideas. I love all of those shows also. We have a lot in common. Chase's diet revolves around ketchup and I sometimes buy the large can at Costco.

Love ya!!

Jamie @ Purposeful Pursuit said...

So glad to hear that your mom is doing well and out of the hospital.

At our house, we rarely buy ketchup, but my daughter goes through mustard like crazy. I finally bought the gallon jug from Costco.

Michele said...

I'm glad your mom is home! Prayers for an uneventful recovery!

I loved all your answers as usual! You brighten my day!

Mia said...

Mama is home YEE-HAW!! Very happy for her and tell her she is in my prayers everyday : )
The reason we love the Duggars & JK is because we are so glad its THEM that have that many kids and not US!!
Bookworm has read the entire Twilight series she is going to wait a few months and read it again?? oh my it must be good!
Have a great day sweetness!!

Dianne said...

Oh I can see Daniel and my dad would get on famously! He loves ketchup, in fact he always asks for food with his ketchup.

The food is really just a vehicle for the ketchup.

I love that wedding photo of you, you look so young and in love, sigh.

I'm so glad that your mom came home and that she is doing well, that's one less thing for you to need to be concerned about right now.

It has been strange in blogland without you, I hope we get to touch base a bit more in the coming days.

Oh and I think you'll love my post tomorrow.

Paula (SweetPea) said...

Great list, girl. Here are mine that I posted on Mia's.

1. too many: CSI (Vegas one), Monk, House, Psych....side note: I like Criminal Minds also but I'm trying to not get addicted to any more shows.

2. no

4. attitude, eating sweets too much

5. does laying on the couch with a comfy blanket and the fireplace going count?

6. yes, general area

7. the friendships created extending outside of blogland

8. My neice said she was going to Florida with gramma (my mom) then she said "and I don't even know what Florida looks like."

Leona Raisin said...

Nothing is more refreshing than athlete mints and a good anagram.

Doran & Jody said...

Glad to hear about your mom.

I am such a split end breaker off-er, picker off-er. GRRR
I am off to get my hair butched because I helped damage it this last month. I think I need 5 inches off to make it look decent. Hey, I can get it cut like my new grandbabies!!!

Wish me luck!!

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

Glad to hear your Mom is home!!

We have someone in the house that eats ketchup like it is going out of style!!! Nick is always reminding me to buy more!!

Have a good night!


Smiling Shelly said...

I'm sure your I mean your beautician - Melissa - would really like for you to give up that particular bad habit too ;)

Awe....look at Amy and Bo...I mean Shannon. *Sigh*

Love these GG's....I'm so far behind I'm gonna have to have an entire cookout. (I may have said that already..LOL!)

Mari said...

Great news about your mom! I need to find more time to stop by more often like I used to. Pesky medical conditions do mess with your life!

Kysha said...

Great news, Amy! So glad she is home and glad to learn more about your family. You're not weird. You're "special". ;) LOL

valerie said...

I'm glad to hear that your mom is home and doing well.

I am up late tonight...and it's funny because I just watched Jon & Kate and the Duggars. :) My husband is in bed. He doesn't care for either of those shows either so I usually get the remote after he goes to bed.

diane said...

Glad to hear your mum is home. Hope she continues to recover.
You haven't changed much from your wedding day. Thanks for sharing your answers.

Gina said...

I enjoy watching Criminal Minds too. :) I's so glad your Mom was able to come home. I pray she has a full and quick recovery.
